SOURCE: problems with fryer

your problem is the thermostat is bad.the reason it shuts down is that it trips the hi limit.the hi limit is a saftey device that shuts the system down so the oil doesnt get too hot and catch on fire.remove all the oil from the tank and you should see 2 skinny metal bulbs one is the hi limit bulb the other is the t-stat bulb,make sure they are secured to the bracket.if the t-stat bulb isnt you will also have this issue,simply reattach it.let me know.

Hi Larry, W/D here. Just got your question so I'm a bit late in getting back to you......
The amount of heat delivered at the burner is dependent on a number of things, and we'll take them in the order of most likely:
1st, The gas tip must be clear. It's possible for critters to build nests in the gas delivery piping that can plug either the gas delivery port or the air side of the mixing venturi; both will give you a reduction in BTU's. Compressed air can be used to blow out the air side of the venturi. The orifice for tha gas can be cleaned with a thin wire, or use a tip cleaner, available at a welding supply store. These are inexpensive.
2nd, The burner proper can become plugged at the ports where the mixed gas/air combusts. These can be cleaned with a small drill bit,sized to the holes, and just passed back and forth to clean them out. Compressed air works well to remove any particles remaining.
3rd, The regulator may be defective. If this is the case, you'll need to replace it as it contains no user serviceable parts.
4th, the in-line regulating valve may be sticking in the partially open position. This is difficult to diagnose, however, and is more of an assumption, after all other causes are eliminated. The cure for this is replacement also.
Hope that this was helpful to you.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a Butterball indoor turkey fryer that lost power and the red light went off, is there a reset button on the fryer


There is a thermal cutoff near the heating element just like all appliances that make heat. It's supposed to stop a house fire but makes these appliance companies a lot of money.

I have a Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer that heated up but when I placed the turkey in the fryer the red indicator went off and it lost power , is there a reset button on the fryer


All appliances that produce heat have a thermal cutoff inside to prevent a fire or meltdown. It's a shame they make them so fragile that it may ruin your special occasion. If you cross the wires on the sensor it may run forever but might be a fire hazzard.

Turkey fryer won't start


Yo! the Dang pan has to be filled and on the burner which makes contact with the auto shut off sensor that is measuring the temp of the pan. The weight of the filled pan holds that Lil temp sensor down and allows the gas to continuously flow as if you were holding that Lil red button. So after hours of trying to light it without the pan you should find that it does work with the filled pan on the burner holding the red button, stick a match in the hole and let the button go and watch the blue flames flow. My gripe now is that it shuts off after the oil temp reaches 250 to 260 degrees then you have to reignite. Oh yeah my 10lb Turkey was crazy tasty.

My flame keeps on going out on my turkey fryer it has a heat sensor on it how do i position the sensor so the flame doesnt go out


The heat sensor for your turkey fryer is preset to 375 degrees F. Once the oil reaches that temperature, the sensor turns the flame OFF, so that the oil will not boil over and ignite. Once the oil cools to 325 degrees F, the burner can be relighted . Use extreme caution when relighting the burner. Altering or repositioning the heat sensor would make the fryer unsafe to operate.

I'm sorry. I which I had better news for you. Always, err on the side of caution & safety when dealing with open gas flames.

Fryer overflows often, turned thermostat down from 350 to approx 340 but food does not cook then. could the thermostat be bad? 10 degrees should not make that much difference.


Does the fryer have a" temperature reached light"? If so switch the fryer on and with the thermostat dial starting at its lowest setting increase the temperature setting in small increments. When the light indicates temperature reached, increase the thermostat dial temperature. Continue until maximum temperature reached.

If (starting from cold) the temerature reached light only shows when high up on the thermostats temperature scale, then unfortunately the thermostat needs replacing.

Hope this helps.
