Deep Fryer Not Warming Up

Cleaned out the fryer to add clean oil and after that it would not come on. I have done this many times and no problems in the past.Do the heat elements quit working after a period of time? Could this be a " cord " issue?

    Fryer just quit working during cooking. Discovered a bad temperature probe. Found this by bypassing the probe wiring (inside). Now the lights work and the element heats up but. THIS IS UNSAFE. I am looking for replacement temperature probe but, not much success so far. - Ed

Hi there.
If the bubbles come up after loading products on fryer, check the product load quantity and reduce as needed so oil will not overflow. Bubbles came from the water content of the product; more water inside the product, the more bubbles it will produce during cooking so it it better to check the loading quantity.
Regards.

Cleaning insrtructions


Gp to a restaurant equipment store or a food broker type place, or I can ship the product to you via UPS, but there are prodcuts developed specifically for cleaning fryers out, like Mr. Muscle, Degreaser, etc. You would fill your fryer up w/water, add the solution, like a packet of Mr. Muscle, and continue to boil the mixture for some time in the fryer.... After it's boiled for some time, use a fryer brush on your heating elements, etc, which you can also buy at a local store or I can ship one to you. When the fryer is clean, you will drain the mixture out and rinse several times. You want to make sure you get all the soap residue out of the fryer or it will destroy your oil after you add it in and try to cook with it...Rinse several times, then add your oil and you should be ready to go. You can also drop your fryer baskets in the mixture just like you are cooking and the boil out product will clean them too.. Be sure to drop them again as you rinse the whole unit out.. Hope this helps. Buy a couple of green pads too, and they should help you with any outside baked on stuff
Good luck,
Susan

I just need to know how to completly clean the bottom of my imperial fryer


Are you talking about the actual burners? They make a L shaped brush that you can use to get around the burners themselves, and a quick tip is to clean the fryer warm.... Once you heat up a griddle or fryer, the cleaning gets substantially easier. They also make either liquid or dry powder cleaning additives, which also help with the cleaning... Once cleaned, make sure you rinse all the soap residue out of the frypot, as that will help to quickly break down your oil, once that new oil is heated up. Another tip is to ony turn the temperature up to 325, not 350, as that also helps to break down your oil. Keep in mind, no matter what yu do, your fryer will never look clean again.... Even the clean, used ones look alittle used after some use and never look shiny new again. If you need any of the cleaning solutions, I do sell them and would be happy to ship some to you... Our individual packets of liquid Mr. Muscle cleaning solutions run $1.95 each and for a 30-40 lb fryer, you need two per cleaning. The directions says to drain oil out and rinse to clean out loose soils, fill w/'water to oil fill line, and get water boiling. You add the Mr. Muscle while filling w/water.... Boil at about 225 temperature for 10-30 minutes. (225 degrees keeps it from boiling over). While it's boiling, gently use a fryer brush or scraper to remove baked on soils. You can also buy the powder version, which is $11.95 for a 9lb jug... Fryer brushes are $24.95 and can withstand alittle of the high heat.... I stock all of these items and can ship to you, if desired. Try this anyway, whereever you end up buying your products and this should work for you...This is how we clean the dirty deep fryers we get in and we've never had any trouble. Our phone number is 888-542-5959, and we are Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio. We sell new/used equipment, furniture, smallwares, just about anything you need for a food service business.
Thanks, Susan

Our staff cleaned the fryer last night and left the pilot on without filling the oil. . The fryer was with no oil and pilot on overnight. Will it lead to problems or we have to take corrective action.


If the main burners didn't light there shouldn't be a problem. If the main burners came on there could be some damage to the tank but there is no corrective action that can be taken. If damage was done it will usually leak cooking oil when filled. Was the gas valve turned to "pilot" or "on"?

It depends on how much you use it. If you use every day all day them change oil once a week and cleaned at the same time. If used rarley then change oil when food tasted not as good as it shood.

Taking out the oil?


I am almost positive that you will have to lift the whole thing to empty the fryer. It looks as if it is one whole piece.

Cleaning


From http://www.rivalproducts.com/help.aspx?helpNav=1: How can I clean my fryer? - Unplug from outlet and allow unit to cool. Always turn control to OFF then disconnect plug from wall outlet BEFORE disconnecting BREAK-AWAY CORD. - Clean the outside of the fryer and lid with a damp cloth. CAUTION: Do not use abrasive pads or alcohol to clean the fryer. - Remove basket handle, if one is included. Frying basket can be washed in hot soapy water. - Rinse and towel dry carefully. - Pour out oil and discard properly. - Wipe the inside with paper towels to absorb excess grease. Wash interior of fryer with hot soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. CAUTION: Never immerse the fryer in water or wash in running water. If you own a fryer with a removable bowl or other removable parts, refer to the Owner?s Guide for your specific fryer to determine which parts can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

Heating


Some Deep Fryers heat up faster than others, please see details below for pre-heating times: Non-Immersion Element (No element in the Oil): 25 to 30 Minutes Immersion Element (Element in the Oil): 7 to 10 Minutes Are you by any chance overloading the fryer? try smaller batches. Preheat the oven to 180 to 200 F. Heat the oil in the fryer to 280 or 290 F. In small batches appropriate to the size of the fryer (fries for a serving of 4 people may need to be divided into 2 or 3 groups), fry each batch for about 8 minutes at this temp. Remove to a holding bowl. They will look limp, nasty and oily. (This uses 1/4" square fries from baking pototoes cut with a standard mandoline.) When all the fries have been precooked, increase the oil temp to 375 F. Add the fries back to the oil in the same sized batches as before. It will take 3 to 5 minutes for them to crisp and brown. Drain, salt, and move to a cloth-lined bowl and hold in the 180 F. oven. Let the oil temp recover to 375 F. and cook the next batch in the same manner. Repeat, holding interim fries in the 180 oven, until all the fries are done. When all batches are done, toss to distribute salt and the new fries with old, and serve immediately. Properly done, all commercial french fries pale in comparison to these. However, I cannot guarantee that this method works with frozen commercial products. I always use fresh baking pototoes. That said, the frozen product should work to its optimal advantage when done in small batches with the first batches held in the warming oven as the other batches are done. If it still doesn't reach 300 F then by all means take it back to the shop and ask for a replacement. If you're out of warranty get an estimate for a repair. Good luck and bon apetite ;]
