    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!

How do i change nozzel on oil burner

Turn power off and isolate the fuel line/lines. Disconnect flare fitting on fuel line to the burner assembly. Open burner assembly...either the primary controller or ignition transformer should hinge open with a few screws on the other side. Should be a locking nut on the fuel line to the burner and electrodes...loosen and pull burner/nozzle/electrodes. I Don't recommend removing the electrodes if you don't know how to space them correctly, so unless you have a nozzle removal socket/ratchet, then use a deep well socket & back it up with a large pair of channel locks. Thread pattern is normal...LLRT. When replacing nozzle, Make sure you have the same gallon rated, spray pattern (hollow, semi, solid etc) , & degree (angle).

Need to replace the heat stripe tape on my tilla foodsaver vaccum sealer

concerning my food sealer: the strip under the heating wire came loose & would not stay in place. i almost threw the unit away but its at least $40 to buy another. i decided to buy a roll of PTFE Coated Fiberglass Fabric With Silicone Adhesive Tape. PTFE is Teflon but u cant use Teflon as a search term because of the copyright. i found a roll on ebay for $3 (free ship) from China (how do they do that!). it took about 2 weeks for the roll to arrive. I cut a strip to fit under the wire. The wire had burned & partially buried itself in the unprotected plastic. Be gentle when nudging it out & clean off any material that has attached itself to the wire. Seals & works like new!
would you like to buy the rest of the roll? the roll has about 28 feet left.
