Question about GE 168952 Deep Fryer
The problem is with your cordset if it is a DP16, Here's how to fix it.
Solution for fixing DP16 Cordset for GE deep fryers: To begin with, you willl need to clean the electrical contacts on both the fryer and the cordset. They will be burnt from electricity arcing between the two when the cord is plugged into an outlet before connecting to the deep fryer. I used a dremel tool attachement grinder used for sharpening chain saw chains. It is cylindrical and fits in the holes in the cordset perfectly. You could use sandpaper rolled into a small cylinder, or whatever is available that will do the job. To open the flaps that cover the holes, insert a toothpick in the center hole of the cordset while you work. Make sure that both sets of contacts are completely clean before proceeding with the next step. Next, using needle nose plyers, make two tight coils of fine or extra fine (.032") resin core solder the same size as the holes in the cordeset. Press into place in each of the holes in the cordset against the electrical contacts. Spread the coils a little so they cannot fall out when the cordset is not attached to the fryer because the flaps will likely not close properly or at all. You can work the coils down so the flaps will close if you use the .032 solder, but they will still be a little loose, so they might jam the flaps open or partially open. This definitly isn't a UL approved method, but it will fix the problem completely. Happy frying!

My fryer also heats up and then turns off. My wife found that by jiggling the power cord (DP 16 magnetic cord set), the power light would come on and start heating again. This is very annoying and we would like to find a replacement cord. Any clue where to get a new cord (a good one this time, please)?

This isn't gas, it's an electric model.
