This would indicate that your thermostat is bad and not sensing, or sending a signal back to cycle the unit off. I would check to ensure that the sensing bulb is in the correct placement inside the brackets and not touching the sides of the frypot. I would also check the wiring going to and from the t-stat. Make sure you unplug the power feeding the fryer before attempting this.

DLE330RAW amana dryer running too hot


The control thermostat on the blower housing is the one you need to change if it is getting too hot. It is taking too long to shut off the element. The only other thing it could be is a blocked vent making it overheat. The fuse is set for 350f the limit on the element is a 250 f one. I suspect the 250 f limit on the element is doing the drying not the control stat. Hence you getting overheat but not hot enough to blow the fuse.

My keating fryer heats the oil fine to temp set on thermostat but will not re fire when oil temp drops unless I push the high limit button. Don't know if the problem is the themostat or high limit...


Sounds like the thermostat is working because it does heat to the right temperature, right? The high limit switch is to shut it down when it gets too hot, so why that helps the unit relight and heat up is strange? Is this gas or electric? Since hitting the reset or high limit button is what is working, I would start there, and replace that... I don't think either part is super expensive, so replacing both wouldn't be too expensive, especially since you have one of the best fryers ever made... Keating is number one in my book, and I know they are expensive to start with, but these two parts shouldn't be much....however I would start with the high limit switch or reset button... If you need a part, we can get you a price....I'm Susan with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio, 888-542-5959, or you can ask for Paul too. Thanks, Susan REO

My 185 ingersol compressor runs fine for 30-45 minutes, then it cuts off. If I wait 10-15 min it will crank and run for 3-5 minutes then shut off. I have all new fuel filters. What do you thibk could be...


From your description I think you are shutting down on high air end temperature. I recommend the following, Check the oil cooler. you want to make sure you are getting good air flow thru it. If not wash it with a pressure washer. I like to use my flash lite to check and make sure I can see thru it. dont look just at the middle check around the sides. If cooler is OK next check the amont valve (thermostat valve). This valve mixes oil from the cooler and bypass to get the temperature where it needs to be so condensate does not form in the oil. Next you may have a bad HAT switch which is located on the end of the air end. If you have a meter see if the switch opens when you have the shut down. you will need to make sure you really don't have a high temp situation. If the temp is high 228 F or higher the switch is doing its job. The temp limit should be located on the HAT switch. It could be 215,245 etc. If the unit is not hot and the switch opens replace the switch. Hope this helps you with your compressor problem.

The pilot light is good if I turn the temp beyond 350, then the burner would go out (the natural gas would shut off at that time) Would you tell me which is the problem and where to buy...


Need more info.. but here goes. If the temperature gets too hot the unit will shut off on hi limit and will reset after it cools down some. This will cause the burner AND the pilot to go out. You need to make sure the temp isn't going over 400. The thermostat my be out of calibration causing the high limit to trip..or the high limit could be shutting the gas off prematurely. You must check the oil temperature when this is happening. It sounds like the high limit device is doing it's job and that the thermostat is letting the oil get too hot.

My kenmore dryer seems to get very hot and then shut down. After a little while it will restart and then heat up and go off again


Most dryers have more than one thermostat. It sounds like your operating thermostat has failed and the high limit thermostat is working. It keeps the dryer from getting too hot when other parts fail. If the high limit thermostat fails, a thermal fuse should shut down the machine permanently to prevent a fire.

All thermostats will have continuity at room temperature.

My fryer will not heat up consistently. If i press the reset button, it heats up. But after heating up to a certain temp it shuts down and stops heating. There is power to the unit, it seems like a problem...


It probably is a problem with the thermostat. The reset button is probably a high limit. The high limit is a safety device to turn the fryer off if the oil gets too hot. Normally they will "trip" somewhere between 375 - 450 degrees F for commercial fryers. I would suggest placing a temperature probe in the oil and see what the oil temp is when it trips. If it trips at a temp below 375, it is a bad high limit. If the thermostat is set at 350 and the temp goes over 400 then the thermostat is bad.

I have a dyno glo rmc-fa100dlx forced air heater. It will light and work for a few minutes, up to about 5, then it will stop heating and the fan will keep blowing. any ideas? thanks!


If the unit comes on and runs but then shuts down, that sounds like an indication of a high limit trip.

Most, if not all, furnaces have high limit switches that keep a constant check on the temp inside the furnace or air handler. On most systems, once this high limit switch has been made (got to hot), the limit switch breaks control voltage to the heating device (strips, gas, fuel, etc.etc..). The blower motor continues to run until the high limit has dropped in temp and reset itself.

On some models, the high limit is a manual reset, meaning you need to reset the switch yourself or shut the unit off and then back on to reset it.


Check all filters and replace as necessary. Check the coils and fan blades for dirt build-up and cleanliness. Check motor belt (if applicable). If all these fail to solve the problem, then your issue either lies within the blower motor itself not moving enough air for proper heat transfer. Or the high limit switch itself is failing.
