Question about Cecilware EL2X15 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Unit is not turning on or calling for heat, why?

Each fryer cord is plugged into its own 120v outlet. I have power at the outlet, through the cord, and at the Fryer. I have also checked the "limit switches." However, neither Fryer is turning on. I can hear the "click" when i turn either thermostat setting to a higher temperature indicating that the unit is calling for heat. Both on/off switches are also on. The fryer and all of its components are very clean, with new oil. The unit is around 18 mounts old, and worked last summer when it was used last. It was stored unplugged and in a heated room. It was also cleaned and emptied before storage. All of the heating element wires and thermo-sensors appear to be in good working condition. What can I do to make the fryer work? What am I missing.

SOURCE: Change 208v heating elements to 240v.

If your supplying 240 vac to a 208 vac element it will work but shorten the life of it.Goto 3wire.com and register,they should have a 208vac element.The wild leg could also be an issue but if you get a 208 vac element it shouldnt hurt it that much.Why you would be getting a reading of 240 vac on l1-l2-l1-l3-l2-l3 is strange.Let me know.

Hello. Here is a link to the manufacture:

It looks like they have files with the parts listed, but are broken down by model #. To fully insure you are getting the correct part, you may want to call them.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

SOURCE: Pilot does not turn on. Fryer was in use n working

Make sure the high limit isnt tripped. There is a red button down next to the thermostat that you push to reset the high limit. If it will not light after that it is probably a bad thermocouple - This is the sensor located in the pilot flame.
Make sure it is well positioned in the pilot flame. If not adjust it into the flame, if so replace it. They are generally available at your local hardware store because they are also used in water heaters and home furnaces. They are pretty cheap and fairly easy to change. It ususally requires that you remove one or two of the main burners for easy access. Empty the grease first just to be safe. Remove the nut from the top of the drain valve handle and remove the handle. Look to the top of the main burner or burners in front of the pilot and there are two bolts on each burner that need to be loosened (not removed) and then lift the burner to remove the bolts from the slots and pull the burner down and out. Remove and replace the sensor (should be fairly straight forward), Replace the burners and valve handle, refill with grease, and try to light it again.

It will not turn on


Hi Woodman22191,
I suggest that you do a couple of visual inspections first before doing anything drastic. Here's a list of things that you should check :
- Is the magnetic cord assembly properly attached to fryer socket ? - Is the electrical cord assembly plugged into electrical outlet? - Is the Power ON/OFF Switch is set to ON? - Is the Heating Element Assembly correctly assembled? Make sure Heating Element Assembly is properly installed on base. - Are you using too much or too little oil in the pot? Make sure that you use the recommended amount of oil in the oil pot.
If these things above does not fix the problem, you may need to Reset the Fryer. - Press Reset on Heating Element/Control Panel by inserting a paper clip or any small pointed object into the opening labeled RESET.
I hope this solves the problem. All the best to you. Good luck.

Cord gets very hot on the outlet side, prongs will cause 2nd degree burns if touched, made outlet very hot as well.am certain it will cause fire inside wall if left on to cook with.


flyindawgs -

The unit is pulling more current than the outlet can handle. The unit runs at 1500Watts, or uses 12.5 Amps of current. Most outlets are rated for 15 Amps. It's likely that you have other outlets that also have devices plugged in to the same circuit. For example, having two or three outlets in a kitchen that are all on the same circuit, you might have more than one device running, and exceed the 15 Amps the circuit is made for. So, even though each outlet might handle 15 Amps on it's own before burning up, it's the total amount of current on the circuit that is the limiting factor (3 kitchen outlets wired together on a 15 Amp circuit can have any combination of devices plugged in and running at the same time, as long as the total is less than 15 Amps).

Having a cord turn warm or hot when in use is always BAD. You should try running the unit without running anything else on outlets in the kitchen. See if it still heats up the cord. Do not leave the unit unattended, and do not let it heat very far. Just turn it on and see if it starts to heat up. If it doesn't, you just have to make sure not to use other devices while frying, and you'll be fine (Running a 12.5 Amp device on a 15 Amp circuit normally would not be a problem).

If it does, there is a problem with the fryer or your household wiring. One of these two is compromised in some way (like a partial short or loose wire connection). Do you know anyone who can measure the current use on the fryer for you? Someone familiar with electricity should be able to help. Hopefully, the fryer is bad (using more than 12.5 Amps means it's got a problem), and not your wiring. If the fryer checks out okay, then your wiring is to blame, and you can't use the fryer on that set of outlets. That kind of leaves you out of luck, as I suspect that you don't want to deep-fry in the living room or the garage.

If the wiring is at fault, an electrician can fix the problem by re-wiring or adding more capacity to the circuit, or adding another separate circuit that you can safely use the fryer on. These are expensive solutions, so you may choose to simply do without the fryer. With luck, the fryer itself is malfunctioning, and replacing it will solve your problem.

Thanks,

My new Acer P191W LCD Monitor has a high pitched whine that is extra loud on pages with rich and dark colors.


The PSU "power supply unit is taken on a lot of noise from the outlet. Can you tell us if you have it streight plugged into to a 120V AC outlet or is it plugged into a strip? The Solution for both is NEW strip i recommend APC or plug it into a strip and check the outlet and make sure its properly grounded this should shore up this problem or the unit itself is going out.

Fryer stopped working


Hey Guys I had the same problem .. Make sure the unit fits into the grooves on the back side .. The Heating element grooves ..There is a reset ,, you have to use a very small pin to do it .. But I believe the problem is what I stated .. Also remember to clean out the oil pan .. If any gung builds up on the elements it will not HEAT up .. We went thru this same problem as you have all stated ..So check the two situations I have stated ...Good Luck

Hi, Its very possible that you have the wrong power to your fryer. I noticed that you said that you tried to plug it in. If it does not seem to fit or if you had to bend anything on the plug to make it fit you need to have an electrician check to make sure you have the correct power to the fryer. The wall outlet will have the power information printed on it. The manual will give you the power requirements. It the plug fits ok, check your breaker for that outlet. Good Luck. If this solution does not rate an (Almost There) Please do not rate.

Thank You,

Replacment cords


On 11/17/07 I posted my problem with this fryer. I did not get a solution so today I called the customer service number 1-877-207-0923 and Virginia (customer service rep) suggested that I order a new cord ($5.95 plus shipping of $5.95). I should receive it in 7-10 days by UPS ground shipping. My model # is #168997 cord # PL1215. I hope this helps.

Cleaning


From http://www.rivalproducts.com/help.aspx?helpNav=1: 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.
