SOURCE: Instruction manual for New Braunfels Turkey Fryer

http://www.charbroil.com/Consumer/KnowledgeBase.aspx

This is the web site for a company that owned the New Braunfels Turkey Fryer. Look at the info and videos for the 'Big Easy' and the instructions are roughly the same.

That is usually a problem with placing the heating unit into the bracket correctly. If is isn't put in properly the unit won't even power on. You may need to take it off and on several times to get it right.

SOURCE: tried to use my turkey fryer and could only get a yellow flame

Check your propane tank first; is it getting close to being empty? Check where the hose connects to the burner, there should be an air adjustment there; it looks like a rotating disc with two big holes on either side, this is turned when the burner is lit to adjust the amount of air mixing with the gas. If it's all the way open, you have a yellow flame, if it's closed all the way you have a blue (but weak) flame. Try adjusting that and if that doesn't work, try a different regulator...it is rare a regulator could cause this but it could cause it; just use that as your last resort.

Turkey fryer won't start


Yo! the Dang pan has to be filled and on the burner which makes contact with the auto shut off sensor that is measuring the temp of the pan. The weight of the filled pan holds that Lil temp sensor down and allows the gas to continuously flow as if you were holding that Lil red button. So after hours of trying to light it without the pan you should find that it does work with the filled pan on the burner holding the red button, stick a match in the hole and let the button go and watch the blue flames flow. My gripe now is that it shuts off after the oil temp reaches 250 to 260 degrees then you have to reignite. Oh yeah my 10lb Turkey was crazy tasty.

Fryer is not getting hot and power light is not coming on. What could be the problem?


Usually the problem is related in seating the heating unit correctly in the Control Mounting Bracket. If it isn't put in properly the fryer won't even power on. When you attach the heading unit onto the fryer make sure it is in both slots. Hope this helps.

My flame keeps on going out on my turkey fryer it has a heat sensor on it how do i position the sensor so the flame doesnt go out


The heat sensor for your turkey fryer is preset to 375 degrees F. Once the oil reaches that temperature, the sensor turns the flame OFF, so that the oil will not boil over and ignite. Once the oil cools to 325 degrees F, the burner can be relighted . Use extreme caution when relighting the burner. Altering or repositioning the heat sensor would make the fryer unsafe to operate.

I'm sorry. I which I had better news for you. Always, err on the side of caution & safety when dealing with open gas flames.

Turkey fryer is burning rich w/ yellow flame and cannot be regulated to blue by air mix plates


first check the gas regulator is the presher right? then try cleaning out all the pipe work and the burner jets i bet you have a dead spider stuck in the gas pipe as it enters the burners,,this would upset the air to gas mix,,so its running on a rich gas mix

Cant get the flame to stay lit after holding the red button


THIS IS FROM BRIKMANN WEBSITE SUPPORTMake sure the tip of the thermocouple is located over the edge of the burner so that it gets hot when the burner is in operation. Also, check all the wiring connections to make sure nothing has come loose. It is also important to use the turkey fryer with the pot that comes with the unit. The pot must sit on the spring loaded temperature switch in order to determine the temperature of the liquid in the pot.

Tried to use my turkey fryer and could only get a yellow flame. Never had a problem getting that nice blue flame before. Do I have a reg problem or a burner prob??

Burner flame orange instead of blue, problem just started today


The only thing that i can think of is that it is not hot enough. try turning up the heat. Orange fire just means that it is not as hot as the blue fire.

How hot does the oil has to be to fry 19 lb turkey


The oil should be hot enough so that when a drop of water is droped into it the oil will sputter, but not not hot enough to cause any smoking vapors!
