    I have the same problem. There seems to be a short in my cord. It has to be adjusted "just perfectly" for the fryer to receive any power.

Okay, folks. Here's the fix for DP16 cordset problems. It ain't UL approved, but it works fine.

First, clean the contacts on the heating unit and the cordset. They will be burnt from shorting out. I used a Dremel chain saw sharpener (cylindrical grinding bit) because it fits through the holes in the cordset plug. Open the holes by inserting a toothpick in the center hole, wedging it open to access the contacts.

Next, using fine or very fine diameter solder, make two small coils of resin core solder (don't use acid core) the same size as the holes, about 1/8". Insert them into the two holes in the plug and spread them apart a little to keep them from falling out when the cord is not in use.

If you use very fine solder, .032", you can work the solder around enough so the little doors will close again, but don't count on their always closing since the solder will stay loose and probably jam them.

Anyway, no more jiggling. Happy Frying!

No power lights will not come on no power


If your fryer has the DP16 cordset, this might solve your problem. Otherwise, have you press the reset button. It's hard to find, but it is there.

Solution for fixing DP16 Cordset for GE deep fryers: To begin with, you willl need to clean the electrical contacts on both the fryer and the cordset. They will be burnt from electricity arcing between the two when the cord is plugged into an outlet before connecting to the deep fryer. I used a dremel tool attachement grinder used for sharpening chain saw chains. It is cylindrical and fits in the holes in the cordset perfectly. You could use sandpaper rolled into a small cylinder, or whatever is available that will do the job. To open the flaps that cover the holes, insert a toothpick in the center hole of the cordset while you work. Make sure that both sets of contacts are completely clean before proceeding with the next step. Next, using needle nose plyers, make two tight coils of fine or extra fine (.032") resin core solder the same size as the holes in the cordeset. Press into place in each of the holes in the cordset against the electrical contacts. Spread the coils a little so they cannot fall out when the cordset is not attached to the fryer because the flaps will likely not close properly or at all. You can work the coils down so the flaps will close if you use the .032 solder, but they will still be a little loose, so they might jam the flaps open or partially open. This definitly isn't a UL approved method, but it will fix the problem completely. Happy frying!

It does not power on.


The cord is bad. We found that by jiggling the cord, the unit started to heat again. We are currently looking for a replacement cord for ours also.
