Question about Star 530FD Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Star deep fryer.

I have a fryer that recently started leaking oil. i had it taken apart and fixed. worked great for 1 day. now after you light the pilot and turn on the gas at any temperature it runs for about 2 minutes then turns off. the pilot light even shuts off. the only thing done different after the repair is the metal thing that supports the 2 thermostats in place was not put back in. now they just hang there not touching anything. when it turns off you hear a click i think coming from the temp. switch. thank you, doug

Those thermostat bulbs are the thermostat and hi-limit bulbs.They need to be secured to the fryer.The hi limit is tripping out because its sensing that the oil is too hot.Even though the oil isnt that hot the hi limit thinks it is.

I have a Pitco Frialator 35CS Deep fryer that is leaking natural gas leak inside gas fryer door just above gas valve assembly the leak is bubbling through each of the 3 flues above the gas valve any help...


Opening fryer door during operation does not correct gas leak problem.
If there is gas leak on your fryer's system, you have to fix the leak or replace parts if necessary.
You can download parts, operation and owner's manual at pitco web on http://www.middleby.com

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"?

Two imperial isf40 fryers taken apart and cleaned, inside did get wet. Now trying to light them both and neither will light and no gas getting to pilot light but gas is for sure working up to the unit.


Disassemble the pilot light tube and blow out with clean compressed air from a compressor.
This should get rid of any residual water in there that is blocking the pilot light.

Also, check the thermocouple if so equipped to make sure its tip is in the flame once the pilot light tube is cleaned out.

Good luck on this repair.

My deep fryer is leaking oil,how to fix it


Replacing the tank isn't cost effective. I am the only one I know that repairs fryer tanks. Most cannot be repaired(welded) successfully. If you got 8 years out of it..that's not bad. Time for a new one.

Defective fryer


There is nothing better that some fish and chips but I don't think this fryer is the one for that. The reviews I have researched say it is unreliable and dangerous due to the lid pops of at high heat. Maybe you can return it for a refund I don't know. Wish I had better news for you but I don't. The best southern way to deep fry is in a cast iron pan. A BIG one! Season it and start cooking! Cholesterol? Whats that? Have a great day and hope this helped you.
