Sounds like this maybe a three phase unit and you are powering it off on single phase power. Most can be converted to single phase but will draw three times the current and requires some wiring changes. It needs to be on a three section breaker for 3 phase.
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
Vulcan, however there are other brands that are better than both of those...Keating is one and Imperial is another. There is a pretty big price difference also. The Keating is the most expensive, but also the best of the bunch.... If you need additional pricing, please call us at 888-542-5959.

Yes but it would not be economical to do it...it would cost more then sending it back for the correct phasing...to many things to convert and change...they may however be able to send you the proper heating elements and safetys, so that you can convert it...would depend on if the proper elements still fit in the same spaces provided...I would call the company and see what they want to do...
I don't think I need a expert to tell me what company sells parts for an Equipex Fryer.
I was just hoping to get a quick answer to a very simple question. Only been working on commercial restaurant equipment for forty years. So I'm still learning, just never see or heard of Equipex LTD and didn't know where to buy a contactor. Think I'll let one of my suppliers answer this one.
If your supplying 240 vac to a 208 vac element it will work but shorten the life of it.Goto 3wire.com and register,they should have a 208vac element.The wild leg could also be an issue but if you get a 208 vac element it shouldnt hurt it that much.Why you would be getting a reading of 240 vac on l1-l2-l1-l3-l2-l3 is strange.Let me know.
