Cord gets very hot on the outlet side, prongs will cause 2nd degree burns if touched, made outlet very hot as well.am certain it will cause fire inside wall if left on to cook with.

The unit is pulling more current than the outlet can handle. The unit runs at 1500Watts, or uses 12.5 Amps of current. Most outlets are rated for 15 Amps. It's likely that you have other outlets that also have devices plugged in to the same circuit. For example, having two or three outlets in a kitchen that are all on the same circuit, you might have more than one device running, and exceed the 15 Amps the circuit is made for. So, even though each outlet might handle 15 Amps on it's own before burning up, it's the total amount of current on the circuit that is the limiting factor (3 kitchen outlets wired together on a 15 Amp circuit can have any combination of devices plugged in and running at the same time, as long as the total is less than 15 Amps).

Having a cord turn warm or hot when in use is always BAD. You should try running the unit without running anything else on outlets in the kitchen. See if it still heats up the cord. Do not leave the unit unattended, and do not let it heat very far. Just turn it on and see if it starts to heat up. If it doesn't, you just have to make sure not to use other devices while frying, and you'll be fine (Running a 12.5 Amp device on a 15 Amp circuit normally would not be a problem).

If it does, there is a problem with the fryer or your household wiring. One of these two is compromised in some way (like a partial short or loose wire connection). Do you know anyone who can measure the current use on the fryer for you? Someone familiar with electricity should be able to help. Hopefully, the fryer is bad (using more than 12.5 Amps means it's got a problem), and not your wiring. If the fryer checks out okay, then your wiring is to blame, and you can't use the fryer on that set of outlets. That kind of leaves you out of luck, as I suspect that you don't want to deep-fry in the living room or the garage.

If the wiring is at fault, an electrician can fix the problem by re-wiring or adding more capacity to the circuit, or adding another separate circuit that you can safely use the fryer on. These are expensive solutions, so you may choose to simply do without the fryer. With luck, the fryer itself is malfunctioning, and replacing it will solve your problem.

Boiling grease


When the issue starts have you actually checked the grease temperature? You can also checkto see if there is excessive grease build up on the themostat.Sometimes uncooked food particles can cause a boiling type motion in the fryer while they cook. be sure to do regular filterings of the grease,this will cut down on the suspended particles.If the grease temp is above 350, shut power off and check continuity on the thermostat,it could be sticking closed,in which case it will need to be replaced

No powerw


Check the plug and then remove the bottom plate and look to see if the wires are still connected. Check another outlet to make sure a breaker wasn't tripped.

Star deep fat fryer model #EM14


You should determine how many amps the unit is pulling, you will need an ammeter to do this. Continuity through the internal circuit breaker does not determine the current being pulled by fryer only that it can pull current. If the fryer is pulling more than 50 amps the problem will be in the fryer, if it is less than 50 and the breaker trips you could have a faulty breaker.
