Question about Vulcan EF3 Deep Fryer
We have an old Vulcan gas powerred fryer in our kitchen that is overheating(read burning) the cooking oil. The model # is worn away so I can't help with that. It's a 4 burner with on/off toggle to left, t-stat in center(red knob) and white and red lights to right. Hope that description helps. I replaced the hi-temp control because sensor bulb was broke off. I also cleaned the buildup off of the t-stat sensor bulb. That didn't help. If we set the temp at say 250 deg. the oil temp rises to around 375 deg. so something is allowing the oil temp to be uncontrolled. Before I spend the $ on a new t-stat, I thought I'd ask for some ideas as to what the trouble might be.
I'm confident that the issue is the thermostat. It's the only thing there to regulate temp and from the sound of it, it's not keeping up. The bulbs can gas out and then they're about as useless as an empty soda can as far as temp regulation goes.
