Will not heat up. Got it down to the element. Put 220 directly to the white wires coming off the element and it still does not heat up. Did continuity checks on switches thermostat etc. where can I get a new element? This happened while my wife was cooking. One batch came out done the next phiff Mike

In order to remove the heating element of a Cuisinart deep fryer you need to do the following:
1. Unplug the fryer.
2. Tip the fryer and put the oil into a container.
3. Put the fryer on its side, with the open top over the sink and a bowl in the sink beneath it. Leave it this way so most of the rest of the oil can drain.
4. Wipe the inside of the fryer with a paper towel.
5. Put several layers of newspaper on the counter and stand the electric deep fryer upside down on top of the paper. You will see that there are rubber feet under the base held in by screws.
6. Remove the feet and screws and you will be able to take off the base to expose the electrical workings inside.
7. Locate the heating element which has wires leading to it. Start by removing the wires leading to it and then loosen up and remove the heating element itself.
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
If you feed single phase into the line terminals, you will get only 1/3 the heat wattage. To get all heating elements working on single ph, you'll have to separate the common ends of the elements, then connect all 3 in parallel. Keep in mind, doing so will raise your line amperage x3 also. That may put you over the contactor's max rating. Another thing, the contactor will activate on only one sequence of single phase. You may need to move the line to another 2 of the 3 connections.
Hi there. Check the sensing bulb of the hi limit device, it may be touching the heating element that's why it trips prematurely especially when you put load on fryer. If this does not correct the problem, your hi limit device may need replacement.
If this is an electric fryer you may have a shorted element that will continue to heat when ever the fryer is turned on,even when it is not calling for heat. If it has 3 phase power, the elements could be wired wrong
I had the same thing on a Presto deep fryer. I removed that back cover and traced the wires from the AC inlet. One lead goes to a switch that activates when you slide the heater into the case so the heating element will not turn on if it is not in the case. I removed the switch, pushed it in and out a few times, verified that it works with a multimeter, reassembled everything, and "presto", it works. Maybe I was lucky, but it worked for me.
