I have one and the thermal fuse blew out the second time I used it.I am still trying to find one. The fryer had a good bit of batter residue in the bottom and must have made it over heat. The fuse would not reset as it is the one time type apparently. Bad design.........

Did you pour out the oil when it was still at it's hottest temp? I would guess there is a master overheat sensor that tripped off. It will be a little thermodisc with 2 power wires connected to it. Find and replace that thermostat sensor. You can test it for continutiy with a volt meter.
Sounds like you may have the thermostat turned way too high.... If you don't, check to make sure it's working correctly, like is the temperature reading correct? Is your flue all junked up with build up and crud? If so, you will need to clean it out.... You can scrap it out with a dough scraper or anything else that works for you...Also, you might check your gas connections, or have your gas co check them, and see if there are any issues with the gas connection and the amount of gas coming into your fryer. Hope this helps you. Susan REO
I don't service home models, only commercial products, however I would guess that something got wet somehow? Let it dry out for a few days and even a week or so, and then try it. If not, I would junk it and buy another... Susan REO
You don't say what type of fryer you have and that will make a huge difference, however you can also just use a deep fat fryer cleaner and boil it out... Depending on the size/model of your fryer, you will add a certain amount of ths product and then turn your thermostat on to high heat in order to make product boil. After it boils/cleans the unit out, you empty it, and rinse several times, and once all the soap residue is gone, add oil back in... If you have a removable pot, then just take it out and wash it in the sink... I do sell this product, in a powder or a gel...If I can help, please call me at 888-542-5959...

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. If you need more help, "ask me"
How can I clean my fryer?
- Unplug from outlet and allow unit to cool. Always turn control to OFF then disconnect plug from wall outlet BEFORE disconnecting BREAK-AWAY CORD.
- Clean the outside of the fryer and lid with a damp cloth. CAUTION: Do not use abrasive pads or alcohol to clean the fryer.
- Remove basket handle, if one is included. Frying basket can be washed in hot soapy water.
- Rinse and towel dry carefully.
- Pour out oil and discard properly.
- Wipe the inside with paper towels to absorb excess grease. Wash interior of fryer with hot soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. CAUTION: Never immerse the fryer in water or wash in running water. If you own a fryer with a removable bowl or other removable parts, refer to the Owner?s Guide for your specific fryer to determine which parts can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
