You will not be able to use the fryer if you disconnect the hi limit. Never attempt to put jumper wire across the hi limit terminal because hi limit on fryers or any equipment is the safety device that will cut off burner flame or heater electrical supply when oil temp reaches 450F in case the thermostat or any part malfunction and If your hi limit is defective, you have to replace it so that you can use the fryer again.

How do I jump/bypass the high limit switch?


Hi there.
Hi limits can be bypassed by connecting jumper wire from common to normally close terminals but this should only be done for testing purposes, if proven defective you have to replace it with a good one before using the unit in cooking.
Hi limit is the safety device of fryers responsible for shutting the gas valve in case oil temp reaches 450f to avoid oil from catching fire.
Regards.

What is the reason for the reset button keep poping out on the dean sm35gm


Hi there!
Reset button of hi-limit switch will only pop-out when its sensing bulb sensed temperature higher tha 450F (trip temperature of hi-limit). Theramostat may be bad allowing oil to reach temp above 450F causing hi-limit to trip-off or hi-limit itself is bad tripping-off at temperature lower than 450F.
Check also the position of the sensing bulb of the hi-limit, it may be positioned touching the heat tube (for gas fryer) or heating element (for electric fryer) that's why it prematurely trips-off.
Regards.

Can i disconect the hi limit switch and still use fryer


Hi there.
Hi limit switch/ device on fryers acts as safety device. It cuts gas supply on burners when it is triggered by high oil temperature in case the temperature regulating device failed to avoid further damage on equipment, property or life.
It is not advisable to operate the equipment with bypassed hi limit device.
I suggest to have it replaced first before putting the fryer back in operation.

The unit is on but does not heat up. it was working then it stopped.how do i check to see if its the thermostat or the hi limit switch


Disconnect first the unit from power source, Locate the terminals of the hi limit and thermostat then remove either one of the wire connected to it. Using an ohm meter, check for the continuity across the terminals. If the hi limit has continuity across its terminals, it is good. Thermostat will have continuity across its terminals when set to a higher temperature, you will also hear a clicking sound when its mechanical contacts engage.

Finding reset switch for vollrath 40707 deep fryer


Reset switch (hi-limit reset button) is usually located at the back panel of the unit if it has a reset button design.If the hi-limit activates and does not have reset a button, you have to wait for the oil temperature to cool down and it will automatically reset.

Flame goes off when temp. reaches 250 degrees, use to stay on 350 degrees without problems an them started acting up and won't reach that temp any more, disconnect the pilot automaticly


Hi limit device trips prematurely (should only trip when oil temp reaches 450F). Check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fryer tank, between fire tubes) is not touching the fire tube because if it does, it will sense the heat from burner flame which is much higher than oil temp.

Fryer over heats,hi limit switch was replaced as well as main gas valve.


Limit switch is last-ditch cutoff.

The thermostat that SETS the temp is where you should be looking.

Looking for a thermostat unit for the Imperial IFS-40 serie : 05159306 what's the part number??


If you have a manual thermostat,(inside door, knob) your part is

#1175 OPERATING THERMOSTAT (HERMETICALLY SEALED REED SWITCH)

If you need the Hi-limit t-stat --

#1177 HI-LIMIT SWITCH

If you have digital control, with digital temperature control, the unit uses a probe.

#1094 FRYER CONTROLLER TEMPERATURE PROBE

Good luck, Mike
