Hello. Here is a wiring diagram for your unit:

http://www.wells-mfg.com/~WELLS/WELLS%20LIBRARY/Wells%20Wir%20Diag/307298.pdf

Check to see that the thermostat clicks at or about just above on, try again the reset, sometimes it is hard to push in all the way. If that does not correct the problem, make sure your power is on, do any indicators light? It could be as simple as a burnt of wire, you will need to check the resistance of the parts to tell any more, thermostat, and hi-limit should read closed (zero). The element should read 4 to 15 ohms each, there are 3 in the tube. The relay coil should be anywhere from 200 to 1200 ohms, the contacts open. I have seen broken wires in the pivot elbow where power comes up the the element head.
Hope that helped, and thank you.

It will not turn on


Hi Woodman22191,
I suggest that you do a couple of visual inspections first before doing anything drastic. Here's a list of things that you should check :
- Is the magnetic cord assembly properly attached to fryer socket ? - Is the electrical cord assembly plugged into electrical outlet? - Is the Power ON/OFF Switch is set to ON? - Is the Heating Element Assembly correctly assembled? Make sure Heating Element Assembly is properly installed on base. - Are you using too much or too little oil in the pot? Make sure that you use the recommended amount of oil in the oil pot.
If these things above does not fix the problem, you may need to Reset the Fryer. - Press Reset on Heating Element/Control Panel by inserting a paper clip or any small pointed object into the opening labeled RESET.
I hope this solves the problem. All the best to you. Good luck.

Deep fryer won't turn on


I had the same thing on a Presto deep fryer. I removed that back cover and traced the wires from the AC inlet. One lead goes to a switch that activates when you slide the heater into the case so the heating element will not turn on if it is not in the case. I removed the switch, pushed it in and out a few times, verified that it works with a multimeter, reassembled everything, and "presto", it works. Maybe I was lucky, but it worked for me.
