After cleaning fryers for 25 years, I always revert back to EasyOff oven cleaner. Be very careful when you try to scrub or scrape the elements. There are two thermostat cap tubes. If either one is damaged the fryer won't work. The cap tubes have a small charge of gas which expands and contracts to tell the thermostat when to come on and go off. You probably can't get them perfectly clean. Start by putting water in the fryer pan and letting it boil for a few minutes. Pour the water out and if it was really greasy, boil it again. When you have floated most of the grease that will melt away, then spray the elements with the EasyOff, or store brand oven cleaner. Let it stand for 30 minutes and then rewet the element and scrub carefully with a good stiff nylon bristle brush. A steel brush might damage the cap tubes. Rinse completely clean before using the fryer.
id look in the right side groove and you will see a tiny microswitch that wont allow power to the element unless its sitting in the cradle I simply took the 4 screws off in the back of the heating element control and by passed it by connecting the 2 red wires and it worked so now I got to find the microswitch but at least I can use it
Is the oil coll and it still doesnt reset?If so the hi limit is bad,which is the reset.If you gain acess to it you will see 2 wires.Connect these wires and it should heat.HOWEVER this is a saftey device that prevents the oil from getting too hot and catching on fire.
This button should be a high limit switch. If it is a small red button mounted to a 2" x 2" or so device. You most likley have an issue with the thermostat letting it over heat. The best thing to do would be to replace both the thermostat and the high limit for safety reasons.
