Deep Fryer Element Won't Heat Up

I bought this fryer two years ago and only use it two times a year to fry fish on our fishing trips. Last month it would not heat up. The green power light was on so it was getting juice. I checked the instructions trouble shooting guide and did what was suggested, no luck.

This fryer has only been used six times.

Look for the reset button and it should come back on. I just did and lights came on immediately.

Deep fry cod

I usually set mine for 350. When at temperature I cook just long enough to cook the fish. Maybe two minutes depending on how thick the fish is. I normally do it by sight when a golden brown I remove it.

A friend told me to buy an 8 inch deep fry thermometer for making fish. Is it worth buying one?

Deep fry thermometers help you cook fish perfectly, so that you don't undercook it or dry it out completely. The 8inch thermometer clips to the side of the fryer. I love mine!

My ge deep fryer will not turn on


Most of these fryers have trip on the rear of the element unit. Search for the trip and reset, if this does not sort out your problem check the fuse in the plug if you are in Europe.

Do not know how to use

Oil darkens with use the oil food molecules burn when subjected to high prolonged heat.
When frying foods such as fish or chicken use the oil once.

Do not filter oil over to reuse. Storing the oil in the refrigerator may extend the life of the oil, this should not be done ever. This process of chilling the oil and then burning the oil to room temperature causes excessive splattering furing the heat up.

Storing the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three months. ( remember to check oil when you use for color, smell, or excessive foaming. Throw out if there is signs of all the above.

This unit has a warranty for one year from the day of purchase.


When starting let unit reheat 7-10 minutes. This will get the heat to desired temperature. Re4ady light will cycle on/off during frying as temperature fluctuates due to food load.
Types of foods cooking: temperatures and time of cooking

Chicken strips 375 F. 5-8 minutes

Chicken pieces, bone-in 375 F. 15-20 minutes

Fish, battered 340 F. 8-10 minutes

French fries, frozen 375F. 3-5 minutes

F375F. 3-5 minutes

Onion rings 375 F. 3-5 minutes

Shrimp, breaded 375 F. 2-5 minutes
When frying frozen food if iced rub off lose as this can make the temperature of oil cool down. Pre-cooked frozen food cooks faster and does not come out oily.

I cannot wait to start cooking in mine as I got it for a christmas gift. Great recipes in the owners manual:

Apples fritters yum yum,beer batter for fish or chicken, deep fried chicken , chicken Kiev, quick doughnut made from biscuits, add topping of ground cinnamon and suger.

Thermostat Issue DCS Fryer??

This sounds to me like the thermostat is not sensing and is reading a closed circuit all the time. You will probably need to replace the thermostat.

Cool touch t-fal deep fryer. I can't find my instruction manual. I took it to work to read and now I can't find it! I want to fry some fish, french fries and cheese sticks. Thank you very much, Bonnie

My Cool Touch won't come on either. I wiggled the magnetic power cord and it came on one time but then, the second time, I tried wiggling the cord to relenquish the problem and zilch! Becoming more and more frustrated and since my fish was battered and ready to go I started pressing at the connections. It turned out that PUSHING THE POWER SWITH TO 'ON' AND THEN APPLYING FIRMER PRESSURE IN THAT SAME DIRECTION made the light come on, signifying POWER!!! Hope this helps. I imagine that there is some type of connection from the 'ON' switch that just doesn't connect and by pushing the 'ON' button firmly upwards the connection is made.
