Hi there.
If overheating trips the hi limit and as you said, the thermostat is new, the first thing to consider is the wiring connection or is it properly wired?

Hello. Here is a wiring diagram for your unit:


Check to see that the thermostat clicks at or about just above on, try again the reset, sometimes it is hard to push in all the way. If that does not correct the problem, make sure your power is on, do any indicators light? It could be as simple as a burnt of wire, you will need to check the resistance of the parts to tell any more, thermostat, and hi-limit should read closed (zero). The element should read 4 to 15 ohms each, there are 3 in the tube. The relay coil should be anywhere from 200 to 1200 ohms, the contacts open. I have seen broken wires in the pivot elbow where power comes up the the element head.
Hope that helped, and thank you.

Yes it should have resistance through it unless it has been opened by a rise in temperature. Tell me what your problem is I can probably help you out.

Hi there,
It is not economical nor even possible to convert electric fryer to gas fryer since the tank construction and parts are very different.

Any competent service technician could cobble something like this together, but I'd challenge the insurance company, as this fryer is UL approved. Such a modification would be expensive and void the warranty and NSF and UL approveals.
