Fryer will heat up at 350 temp setting but actual reading is 375. The problem we are having is that the fryer will heat up fine then when the burner goes of the pilot will also shut off. If however i run...


The thermostat is out of calibration and the hi-limit may be as well. I could give you instructions on calibrating the thermostat but the hi-limit is not adjustable at all. The hi-limit cuts off the burners and pilot in the event that the unit gets close to the flash point of the cooking oil. It should not cut out until 400-425 so either the fryer is occaisionally getting a lot hotter than you think or the hi-limit has gotten weak due to the erratic operation of the thermostat. I would recommend that you change both the thermostat and the hi-limit.

My old Russell Hobbs K3 switches off before it has boiled. Is there an adjustment for this, if so, where? Thanks, Ann


The thermostat is non adjustable and must be replaced. Unless under warranty still, it's cheaper to replace the kettle.

Deep Frier power indicator light is on but will


Most fryers have what is called a hi limit. When the oil temp reaches a certain Max temp this switch opens the circuit and will not allow the unit to heat. On commercial fryers, the hi limit has a really small red plunger button. Push it in to reset.

Cuts off


Like most of the problems listed on FixYa about this Deep Fryer ours worked fine the last time we used it, but we could not get the power light to come on again. I found that there is s SAFETY Micro-switch on the heating element control unit. This switch prevents the heating element from being turned on when it is not in the Fryer Pan. The accuator lever for the switch is located under the guide slides on the heating element control unit. It is a metal lever which is moved as you mount the heating element control unit on the fryer pan. You have to look closely under one of the guide ledges on the heating control unit to see it . The problem is that over time the adjustment of the lever changes as it flexes under use. I simply readjusted the lever by forming it with a pair of long-nosed pliers. CAUTION !!!!!!! You can bend the lever so far that the switch is closed all the time defeating the Safety Switch and create a hazard in that the unit will heat as soon as you plug it in whether inserted in the Fryer Pan or lying out on any surface. This might burn someone or cause a fire. Good Luck
