Can you soak heating element on a butterball electric turkey fryer?


Most heating elements are indeed submerged in oil and for that reason I would not think it would affect your unit, however I do not normally work on home model products. I am a commercial restaurant equipment dealer, working on commercial products only. Trying it out would tell with within a few minutes whether it's going to work or not? Any other questions, I would find the 800 number or website for that company and ask them directly. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you, but I just don't know that much about home model stuff.

Is the heating element submergable in oil i have just never seen a heating element that is in direct contact with liquid and the paperwork doesnt say. I know that the way its put together it looks like it...


if a heating element is not immersed in a fluid ,it overheats and burns out
if it is designed to be in a fluid ( cooking oil or water as in hot water system) that is where it goes
If you are having doubts , you should not be doing the job so get in a professional to fit it

Spray it really well with Oven Cleaner-let it sit outside, if you can for as long as possible-a day would be great. then wipe it down with a damp sponge.

Replacment cords


On 11/17/07 I posted my problem with this fryer. I did not get a solution so today I called the customer service number 1-877-207-0923 and Virginia (customer service rep) suggested that I order a new cord ($5.95 plus shipping of $5.95). I should receive it in 7-10 days by UPS ground shipping. My model # is #168997 cord # PL1215. I hope this helps.
