    ELECTRIC FRYER SHUT DOWN. FOOD NOT READY EVERYTHING CLEAN

  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2008

    I have already replaced my fryer once with the same problem. The second
    unit, I have used 2 times before with no problems, now last night when
    I wanted to use it it would not work. We have tried everything to get
    it to work.

    While ready the book that came with it, I would like to know where
    there is a reset button behind othe control panel. If it is that simple
    to fix, than let me know where it is. Otherwise I will take it back and
    this time I will get a full refund.

    power comes on then in the middle of cooking it goes off. Jiggle the the plug a little at fryer connection and power light will blink on but then go out. Is this a bad cord, how could it be? Have not had that much cooking time with it. How can I get a replacement z,pfr; DP 16 magnetic chord set for this product.

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.

I light the pilot everything is fine then when i go to turn thermostat on pilot light goes small and burners dont light and when i turn back to pilot the gas ignites and goes out


Sometimes certain models turn off if you touch the thermostat before it lites...
We've seen this happen many times, so you would need to light the fryer first, wait until it's stable before turning your thermostat to desired temperature.

Some times when plug it up to the back an push the power on it goes off if you move the plug it might come back on.


Bad power connection. Fix this problem immediately. It will eventually cause some kind of damage even if it doesn't catch fire.

Pilot will not stay lit. Will light and goes out after a few minutes!


Remove the thermocouple and clean the threaded end carefully.
Then screw it back in and try it.
If it continues to extinguish,replace the thermocouple.

Pilot light goes out when burner turned on


Replace the pilot generator. You are not getting the millivolts you need when you turn on the fryer.

Cant get the main flame on


Check the vent hole (plastic plug, not the screw) on the regulator between your gas line & the back of the fryer. If it is plugged, it wont fire & the pilot will go out when t-stat makes.

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.
