FIRST THING I WOULD DO IS CHECK THAT THE MAINS RED LED IS LIGHTING IF NOT CHECK THE FUSE IN THE PLUG IF IT IS BLOWN THEN YOU WOULD HAVE TO LOOK AT THE ELEMENT AND CHECK IT FOR RESITANCE ABOUT 100 OHMS NOT A DEAD SHORT IF THIS IS OK THAN CHECK IF THERE IS A FUSABLE FUSE OR THE THERMOSTAT CONTROL MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN HEAR IT CLICKING WHEN TURNING THE DIAL IF THERE IS NO SOUND YOU CAN ADJUST IT OR REPLACE IT

Has to be a stuck thermostat or a bent or broken bulb, tube in the fryer oil. When replacing the control be careful not to bend the tube to much to pinch it closed. This is a very small pipe. Check by turning the thermostat from low to high and see if it will turn off the fryer. It could be out of calibration but unlikly when the high limit kicks off.
You are cooking too hot....Turn the temperature down, and if it still does that, try using it outside or under a vent or hood... That's generally a better idea, to use the fryer under a vent, so it can vent that hot, oily air outside to start with....Thanks, Susan
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.
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.
You should determine how many amps the unit is pulling, you will need an ammeter to do this. Continuity through the internal circuit breaker does not determine the current being pulled by fryer only that it can pull current. If the fryer is pulling more than 50 amps the problem will be in the fryer, if it is less than 50 and the breaker trips you could have a faulty breaker.
