Re: My GE 168997 is not heating up enough..

It can't be found along with all other GE parts here, but their website gives a phone number you can call (1-877-959-8688) where they offer parts not offered online.

"8. What about parts and accessories not offered or that I cannot find on the web site?

A replacement part or accessory may not be offered on the website because of inventory levels. Also, because some replacement parts require technical qualification for installation, they may not be offered for purchase online. If you cannot find the part/accessory you need, call GE Parts toll free at 1-877-959-8688, and we will be more than happy to assist you in researching & ordering parts for your appliance. Please have your complete model number and serial number ready and give us a call. Our hours are: Monday through Friday, 7:00am - 6:00pm (CST), Saturday 7:30am - 4:00pm (CST), Sunday - closed."

Fryer wont turn on since I cleaned it

I don't service home models, only commercial products, however I would guess that something got wet somehow? Let it dry out for a few days and even a week or so, and then try it. If not, I would junk it and buy another...

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.
