Re: error message

Same Err message right out of the box. The correct phone # is 1-800-323-9519. They asked my problem, then said cut the plug off it, mail it with my problem, name, address and phone # and they would replace the unit. Gonna mail the plug this week and cross my fingers.
The Company is Jarden Consumer Solutions, 303 Nelson Ave, Neosho, Mo, 64850
Hope this helps somebody.

Err comes on after a few minutes and fryer stops and an audible alarm comes on

This sounds like you have an overheat alarm going off. You will have to identify the component that is causing this. It will be the main board or one of the sensors itself. Should only be two of them.

Light comes on, but it no longer heats up.

I have a similar model of DeLonghi fryer, and I have read that many customers have problems with their fryers not heating, after owning and using them regularly for some time. Mine gives an error message and stops heating, once in a while. The lights remain on, but it displays an error message on the temperature readout. I've found that detaching the magnetic safety cord and thoroughly cleaning both the cord and the connections on the back of the machine makes a big difference. Your mileage may vary.

Getting error reading on display. How do I fix this issue so I can make my wings today?

I have the deep fryer, which I have had a few years and got it out last night and I'm getting an error message. There is nothing about what to do about this in the trouble shooting guide. We made sure the control panel was in and after that have no idea how to solve this problem. Ann Lytle

I turn on the power and before I can set the temperature I get a flashing "err" message and can't do anything.

You are not alone. We have the same problem. Unit worked fine for 2-3 years. We still have the manual. This is not a user error- we know how to use it. The sensor switch is fine- it would not power on without that working ok.

The red power light comes on, and when we turn it ON it says "200" for about 2-3 seconds... then "Err". Nothing is possible after that, the unit has to be powered off.

We can push Temp Mode and start setting the temp higher but after 2 seconds it just goes to Err. It does not matter what buttons you push- you don't have to push anything at all and it says "Err". Reset button does nothing- this is not a heat temp overload issue. This unit worked at Thanksgiving, and then not at Christmas! We tried powering it on 10-20 times... nothing. Then the next day as we were about to put the turkey in the oven I tried the fryer again... and presto it worked fine!!! Now today it does not work again. Tried it 10 times, no go. Unit was stored in pantry (in house) so it is not a cold/warmup issue. I think it is something messed up in the electronics- a weak solder joint, a bad chip, who knows. It's like the unit fails a "power on self test". Unfortunately, I do not have a solution yet. Don't want to buy another Masterbuilt for sure... only use this 1-2 times a year. Will share if I find anything.

Delonghi fryer

I broke the plastic mount that holds the controls against the outside of the frame. That plastic mount was depressing a switch that is no longer being depressed. I get an Error message too. I'm going to try to contact the manufacturer to see if I can get a replacement part. (I doubt I can because the model is discontinued).

Error message

I have the same problem. It is caused by the thermister thermal probe going bad (open circuit). Delonghi wont sell you the probe which probably costa about $2, they want to sell you a new control panel for $93. You can replace it with another thermister and it works but it will probably be out of calibration.

Error message

I don't know if this is the true answer or just works with ours, but if I hold the on button (for heating) and the program button together in a couple seconds it stops blinking and resets to the temperature mode. When that hasn't worked, it's also worked to hit the rest button in the back first and hold for a couple seconds and then hit the two buttons mentioned above together. However, each time I get the ERR message it gets harder and harder to reset. I would love for someone else to respond for the actual "fix" for this as it's looking to be the actual computer part of the thermastat to us and I'm wondering if it's worth fixing or shopping for a new fryer is needed for price. But, this has gotten us through for now to be able to fry again.
