Not enough oil in it to cover the sensor. If it doesn't shut off could be the circuit board is out of it.

SOURCE: Fryer not turning off and overheating oil.

That can happen either because of a faulty thermostat, a faulty electronic control, or because of a contact in thermostat wiring. A defective gas valve would be quite unusual.

Fryer wont shut off oil overheats

Temp probe is probably bad. But there should be a hi limit switch to shut it off when it overheats. Either it is faulty or it doesn't have one. If it don't it is very dangerous to operate. Could cause a fire.

I have had 8 pitco gas self-filtering fryers for 10 years. I'm not sure what the model they are, but hopefully it won't matter. Recently, especially after boiling out, we have had a problem with...

Two things when you clean out the pots.....Number one is, make sure you rinse all the soap or cleaning solution out really well, and I mean WELL... any left over residue will ruin your new oil, and number two, your oil temp should never be above 325, especially with new oil.... Sounds like you are burning your oil up with too high of a temperature. Actually, there is another option here too,
have you ever tried a fryer additive? Like Miroil is one....? You add this liquid prior to lunch or dinner, according to how much oil is in the fryer, how many hours a day the fryer is on and how many days a week you are open....Anyway, if you are interested, we could help you with the formula, and from that point on, you never dump a whole vat of oil again. Each day, you would drain off a pre-measured amount of oil, and lets say you have a chicken fryer, and a fish fryer. You would drain off the chicken fryer and dump into the fish fryer, and put the same exact amount back into the chicken fryer of new oil. It might be a 2 cup measurement or alittle more, but the point is by freshing your fryer each day, you will never dump it all out again. They also recommend oil temp at 325, no higher, and making sure all soap residue is rinsed out completely before adding any oil.
By doing this, your oil will look golden all week long, and you will no longer have the darker oil as the week goes by, with the really dark, crappy stuff right before you end up dumping it...Hence, your products will always look the same too, light golden, absorb alot less grease during cooking, and again, that's all week long, not just first part of the week....If you are interested in trying the additive, I can price you some, or you can go online yourself? Not one person I have ever set up on this additive program has ever complained or stopped using it so far...They love it, and it really works.

If you have new thermostats and a high limit switch, you might have had a bad thermostat before, and your temperature was really alittle lower with the older one? Now, that you have a new one, and it's working correctly, maybe that 350 is too hot? If the other one was bad, and running alittle less hot, say 300 or 325 all along, and you just never knew it, now you have one that's registering your temperature at the correct reading and it's too hot? Or, another scenerio could be your tech installed a bad thermostat? That happens too, where a new thermostat is actually bad to start with, and maybe it's off alittle the other way? LIke 350 is actually 450? If you have other questions, or are interested in the additive, my name is Susan, with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, 888-542-5959 and I would be happy to asist you in any way, and I'd love to know what you end up finding out on your fryers.... Thanks, Susann REO

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

How hot does the oil has to be to fry 19 lb turkey

The oil should be hot enough so that when a drop of water is droped into it the oil will sputter, but not not hot enough to cause any smoking vapors!

Smoke from back of engine after it is shut off

Well This has happened to me also. When I looked there was no oil anywhere but when I removed the head gasket, I took it appart and there was a very tiny crack which leaked oil directly onto my Manifold. So once my car got hot the tiny crack let out a few drops which smoked after the manifold gets really hot. As for yours I am not sure but i suspect its that. As for a fix I dont know one. I put my motor back together and ran it for a long long time (Trusty Volkswagen)

Fryer will not turn on

There's a red reset button that you need to press, it is hidden deep inside a well in the plastic piece. The well looks just like a screw hole until you know what to look for. Once you press it and your power supply is attched right you are golden.
