If the unit starts off fine, and then loses some of it's heat, I would suspect that your regulator is freezing up. This can be caused be a bad tank or regulator. You'll have to swap it out to test it.

If the gas supply is good (reg and tank), you need to inspect the heat exchange tubes. Look where the flame shoots through the fryer. Use a flashlight. Look for LARGE amounts of black soot. If it is sooty, blow it out with compressed air. Once you get it cleaned out, you need to add more air to your mix. There should be a disk at the base of the burner.

If you have access to a manometer and orifice drills, you could adjust the flame to it's maximum. But as I said, I expect you have a regulator problem.

Bits left in pan and paddle when cooking chips


If you use fresh potatoes, try a different variety as some are a lot firmer than others.

For frozen chips, start cooking as soon as they are removed from the freezer and don't let them sit.

I am trying to switch a natural gas deep fryer to propane and cannot fimd the correct part


Hi there.
You can visit http://www.imperialrange.com , you can verify there the correct parts list for the model of your fryer for the conversion from natural to propane and you will be able to search there the nearest authorized parts and service provider in your area.
You will be needing burner orifice for propane, pilot orifice for propane (if available, if not, the whole pilot assembly), Gas valve spring for propane (if available, if not, the whole gas valve for propane).
Regards.

HOW LONG TO COOK FRESH FRIES


Hi, W/D here.

Cooking time can vary, due to the moisture content of the potatoes that are being cooked. A good rule of thumb is to cook them until they begin to float, then to your preference of golden brown.
Hope this is what you need.
Best regards, --W/D--
