SOURCE: oil foams after putting foodin. new oil help

This happened to me with a similar fryer and the potatoes were room temperature. It still foamed, although previous uses did not do this. I suspected the oil needed replaced. However, this person said it happened with new oil! (????)

05 grand am its 10 below here i have white foam inside my oil cap oil is clean car runs fine i had is this condensation or more... coolant level is good heats good oil clear

Hello Sam, I suspect the white foam is nothing more than condensation. I would keep an eye on the foam and continue to change the oil and filter at your normal change interval.

My amana top load washer is foaming out of the discharge

sounds like you need to clean your washer , use white distilled vinegar about 2 cups on a heavy hot wash and if you are still foaming you can use vegetable oil to remove suds , repeat if needed

What order do the foam filter's go?

If you have a paper element with a foam pre filter the foam goes on the outside.

You should also be sure to oil your foam prefilter with a teaspoon of clean engine oil and wring it out to distribute it evenly.

I hope this helps!

Ticking in the motor

Sounds like you have a lifter that is sticking. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment at Advance Auto Parts, Walmart, and many other suppliers. I have used this product many times and it is fantastic. This is not a motor treatment such as some of the others you see advertised to improve mileage or stop oil burning. This is a legit product that many mechanics trust. To clean lifters, add 1½ oz. Sea Foam to each quart of oil. Sea Foam will slowly re-liquefy the old oil varnish residue that builds up on lifters and prevents them from functioning normally. This process can be done as part of a pre service cleaning by adding the Sea Foam to the oil at least 30 miles before the next oil change interval. OR it can be done as a preventative maintenance process without changing the oil. You can leave Sea Foam in the oil indefinitely as long as the oil is clean. The addition of a high-detergent oil like Sea Foam may cause the oil to become dirty faster than normal as buildup oil residue and contamination are cleaned. Check the oil at regular intervals and when it gets dirty, change it.

Sir,i use p750 ingersoll rand compressor and we are experiencing over heating from the radiator upto 150 degree celcius. what are likely causes ?

A possible reason for the problem may be a plugged radiator or cooler. As oil circulates through the system, it gets hot and foams up as it foams up, it will boil out, so that oil is lost in the foam and then the oil level gets lower and lower and the foam hardens up in the orifice tube and connectiong tubes. This all can be started with dirty air filters that restrict the system. check the air filters, flush the radiator and check the cooler, change the seperator filter and use approved oil as that detergent levels in the oil cause it to boil faster and foam up. Also check the fuel pump for leaks at the base, try spraying soapy water and look for leaks, this will also cause the engine to heat up.

What would cause it to foam over when food is put into hot oil

Your oil has broken down already.
Replace it.

High heat, water, and burned food particles break the oil down in time. You probably need to replace your oil with fresh if you notice any of these symptoms:

Excessive smoking at normal temperatures

Strong oil discoloration

A rancid smell

Excessive foaming around the frying food

What kind of oil (vegtable or corn oil )


Please use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil, sunflower oil,
soybean oil or grapeseed (canola oil) because these oils have a high
smoke point. Peanut oil is not recommended because it greatly
impacts the flavor.

• Oils should never be mixed when deep frying.
• High heat, water, and burnt food particles break down the oil’s smoke
• Replace oil if you notice:
- Excessive smoking at normal temperatures
- Strong oil discoloration
- A rancid smell
- Excessive foaming around the frying food

Do not know how to use

Oil darkens with use the oil food molecules burn when subjected to high prolonged heat.
When frying foods such as fish or chicken use the oil once.

Do not filter oil over to reuse. Storing the oil in the refrigerator may extend the life of the oil, this should not be done ever. This process of chilling the oil and then burning the oil to room temperature causes excessive splattering furing the heat up.

Storing the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three months. ( remember to check oil when you use for color, smell, or excessive foaming. Throw out if there is signs of all the above.

This unit has a warranty for one year from the day of purchase.


When starting let unit reheat 7-10 minutes. This will get the heat to desired temperature. Re4ady light will cycle on/off during frying as temperature fluctuates due to food load.
Types of foods cooking: temperatures and time of cooking

Chicken strips 375 F. 5-8 minutes

Chicken pieces, bone-in 375 F. 15-20 minutes

Fish, battered 340 F. 8-10 minutes

French fries, frozen 375F. 3-5 minutes

F375F. 3-5 minutes

Onion rings 375 F. 3-5 minutes

Shrimp, breaded 375 F. 2-5 minutes
When frying frozen food if iced rub off lose as this can make the temperature of oil cool down. Pre-cooked frozen food cooks faster and does not come out oily.

I cannot wait to start cooking in mine as I got it for a christmas gift. Great recipes in the owners manual:

Apples fritters yum yum,beer batter for fish or chicken, deep fried chicken , chicken Kiev, quick doughnut made from biscuits, add topping of ground cinnamon and suger.
