Question about Tefal Ultimate EZ Clean Pro Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Leakage everytime i filter my oil for my ez clean deepfryer from tefal, either the oil dosen't drain or it drains really, really slowly, or the oil leaks all over the place (at the beggining of the draining process, not the end, so that eliminates too much oil). is it defective? it started on my second time using it!

The fix is to unscrew the drain plug from the oil reservoir. As the oil drains into it, the air inside is displaced and needs to go somewhere. The left over oil from previous drainings has caused the reservoir to become an airtight seal making the oil compete for the trapped air for the space resulting in the much of the oil giving up and draining over the top instead of pushing the air out. Removing the plug allows the air to escape as the oil rushes in. Only problem with this solution...I've now lost my drain plug because I took it out to drain and misplaced it. T-Fal doesn't sell replacement parts and instead I would have to shell out $15 plus shipping for a new reservoir from a 3rd party repair center. For now a paper towel stuck in place of the plug is getting me buy.

How do i get the oil filtration system to work

Check the reset button on the motor itself. See if you have power to it as well. Check your wiring. If you gave power to the motor and the motor still doesn't work after checking the reset, then you probably have a bad motor. You are looking at 200-300 dollars for it all.
