It's probably the 'thermal' protective device installed in the circuit with the heating element. Many appliances are equipped with this kind of protection (i.e., coffee pots, electric skillets, rice cookers, crockpots, etc.). As the appliance ages, this device starts to fail and then finally 'gives up' and an 'open' circuit occurs and the heating elements don't receive power to heat up. If you have appliance repair experience, this component can be purchaced at most appliance repair shops. If you are not so inclined, it's best to have a qualified appliance repair technician diagnose the problem and repair it (if you want to keep the fryer).

Hope this helps you.

Need a detachable cord for fryer

Hello pat..... Ultrex is no longer in business.

find a local appliance parts store to see if they can fit a cord for you. There are many universal designs available that may fit your unit. In order to do this, you will have to bring the deep fryer in to the store. Joe

From what I understand through QVC where I purchased my Ultrex Model LT 512 deep fryer, the Ultrex Company is no longer in existence. My detachable cord go destroyed, so I am looking to purchase a replacement through T-Fal appliance replacement parts listing. Maybe you will find a compatible fryer and then order that manual.
