I bought a Brinkmann Turkey Fryer Yesterday. Everything looks good except when I light it up the fire stays on while pushing and holding the red cap near bottom of control panel for 30 seconds. The problem is thst as soon I let the red button go the fire goes off too. Fire won't stay on.

Hi,
They have what is called a thermocouple that senses the flame and keeps the gas on in there. If the unit is brand new I would not mess with it and I would return it for another one...the problem could be either the gas valve or the thermocouple...

Seems you got a bad one...

If that is what the directions say to do,hold for 30 seconds and it will stay lit and it doesn't,I would say maybe the gas valve is not open enough,since there is fire that's probably not likely because even if there was a little,it should stay lit.Is there enough air ventilation around it?I am pretty sure you do so I would say take it back and exchange it.Fire 101=air,combustible material,ignition.If you have done everything by the book more than 1 time and have nothing still,it is faulty.After 30 seconds,that is plenty of time for the gas to reach where it needs to,that is why they say 30 seconds.
Good luck! Greg

    It's either open the gas valve,or it's bad.Everything else is normal.Greg

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.

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.

Cannot get burner to stay lit-gas going thru it but when red button released it goes out


I bought my fryer in November 2010 worked good for that Thanksgiving. Went to use it this year and thermocuople kept shutting off I used a brick to kep red button pressed in.

After turkey day I removed my thermocouple and installed a direct conection. I used a McMaster-Carr p/n 93590A220; Metric 18-8 Stainless Steel Coupling Nut M8 Screw Sz, 1.25mm Pitch, 38mm Length, 16mm Width, $7.95. I'm not sure about the exact thread size the Brinkman hose end and brass fitting on burner uses. However, I found 8mm threads to be the closet. Use thread sealant and it works great!

I tried 1/16" pipe fitting bit it is not correct.12_5_2011_6_08_54_pm.jpg

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.

Searing Unit Keeps Cutting Out After Release of Knob


First I have a couple of questions for your question on how to fix your Brinkmann Gas Grill, Model 810-8501-S
===============================================.

1). Did you push the igniter for 3-5 seconds after you turned on the Sear Burner (remember, this needs to be done AFTER you've turned the control knob to HIGH).

2). Once the burner is lit, you then need to continue to PUSH & HOLD the control knob for another 30 seconds as this somehow seals the deal, thus this should solve the problem.

3). However, if this does NOT work, you may have a defective Sear Burner and the best thing to do is to contact the Customer Service Department over at Brinkmann:

* The Brinkmann Corporation

Hope this helps!

I just bought the Turkey Fryer 815-4000-S and the manual is missing! I can't wait until tomorrow!! I have to hook it up now...help!?


Take the plug and take off the safety cap and insert it into the side of the fryer. It should heat up then. If there is a t'stat, turn it to the setting that is probably marked. Good luck.
