It probably is a problem with the thermostat. The reset button is probably a high limit. The high limit is a safety device to turn the fryer off if the oil gets too hot. Normally they will "trip" somewhere between 375 - 450 degrees F for commercial fryers. I would suggest placing a temperature probe in the oil and see what the oil temp is when it trips. If it trips at a temp below 375, it is a bad high limit. If the thermostat is set at 350 and the temp goes over 400 then the thermostat is bad.

I need an instruction manual for a cooks essentials air fryer


How to Use Your Fryer:
  • Remove all packaging materials, sticker, and labels.
  • Clean the basket and pan with hot water, soap and a non-abrasive sponge. These parts are dishwasher safe.
  • Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a clean cloth.
  • Place the air fryer on a flat and even surface.
  • Put the basket in the pan.
  • Plug unit in to an approved wall socket.
  • Place the ingredients in the basket and then put the basket and pan back into the appliance. The fryer LED will light up.
  • Set your cooking time and temperature by either choosing one of the 8 presets or manually set it with the "+" or "-" buttons. See "Cooking Guide" to determine the right time and temperature.
  • Once you have set your cooking time and temperature, press the "Start" Button.
  • The heating icon and fan icon will be blinking and this means that the fryer is starting and is circulating the hot air in the fryer. NOTE: During hot air frying, you will notice that the heating up icon will blink and stays from time to time. When the heating icon is on, it means that the temperature inside the fryer has reached the set temperature. When the heating icon is blinking, it means that the temperature inside the fryer dropped and is below the set temperature and is currently heating up to the reach the set temperature.
  • Some ingredients may need to be shaken halfway through the cooking cycle (see "Cooking Guide"), To do this, pull the pan out of the air fryer by the handle, the air fryer will automatically shut down. Then shake the contents in the basket, then slide the pan back into the air fryer and it will resume the cooking cycle. CAUTION: Do not press the button on the handle during shaking; this will detach the basket from the pan.
  • When the cooking time has been reacher, the air blower will stop in 20 seconds.
  • Pull the pan out of the fryer and place it on a pot holder. The cooking pan is VERY HOT do not put on surface that can burn. NOTE: Oil from the ingredients will gather in the bottom of the pan, so be careful when pulling the pan out of the fryer.
  • To remove the ingredients, press the button on the handle of the pan to detach the basket. DO NOT TURN THE PAN OVER. PLACE ON A POT HOLDER.
  • Upon placing the cooking basket back into the air fryer, the air fryer will automatically go to the previous cooking cycle and will repeat the previous cooking cycle, press the cancel button to stop and reset the air fryer if desired.

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.

WHEN FRYER HEATS UP THEN IS LOADED TEMP SEEMS TO FALL AND HAS TO BE RESET


If you manually reset by pressing overtemp thermostat, then check your operating thermostat.. maybe over heating.. if so replace thermostat.. if pilot cuts out completely prematurely without reaching set temp then replace overtemp cut out thermostat as it is faulty.

My keating fryer heats the oil fine to temp set on thermostat but will not re fire when oil temp drops unless I push the high limit button. Don't know if the problem is the themostat or high limit...


Sounds like the thermostat is working because it does heat to the right temperature, right? The high limit switch is to shut it down when it gets too hot, so why that helps the unit relight and heat up is strange? Is this gas or electric? Since hitting the reset or high limit button is what is working, I would start there, and replace that... I don't think either part is super expensive, so replacing both wouldn't be too expensive, especially since you have one of the best fryers ever made... Keating is number one in my book, and I know they are expensive to start with, but these two parts shouldn't be much....however I would start with the high limit switch or reset button... If you need a part, we can get you a price....I'm Susan with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio, 888-542-5959, or you can ask for Paul too. Thanks, Susan REO

Deep Frier power indicator light is on but will


Most fryers have what is called a hi limit. When the oil temp reaches a certain Max temp this switch opens the circuit and will not allow the unit to heat. On commercial fryers, the hi limit has a really small red plunger button. Push it in to reset.
