Question about Cecilware EL2X15 Deep Fryer
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.

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.

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.

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.
