Top 20 Frymaster Dean FM345EETC Deep Fryer Questions & Answers

The gas valve may be leaking gas out where it should not be leaking gas out. You may need a new gas valve. This could be a safety issue, not just with a fire, but a potential fire gas explosion. Please get it fixed ASAP.

There is a problem in the system. The problem is usually a sensor that is not reading correctly or not working right.
To troubleshoot this type of problem it is best to call the factory tech. support people and have them walk you through the troubleshooting. then they can also guide you to getting the proper replacement parts. For a problem that is showing up like that you will need OEM parts anyway.

You have a lazy thermostat that needs replacing. Not uncommon.

first thing I would check is to make sure the quick disconect on the gas hose is fully connected,and that the cut off valve is tured on.Sometimes the orifice in the pikot assembly can become stopped up.(where you light it by the burner)you can check there by undoing the gas line at the compression nut on the assembly.the hole is really small and you can use a small needle to clear it.

Ok sounds like your problem maybe that the gas valve is set to low. If you have access to a manometer you can put it on the outflow port of the gas valve and see what the reading is. It should be at 4" water column for this fryer. You possibly might even have a faulty gas valve, these will go out sometimes and still let the pilot bypass maintain regular operation. Please comment me back if you need more assistance with this.

The burner or the burner venturi is clogged. The burners are held in place with 2 bolts at the top and you need a 1/2 inch wrench. Remove the bolts and lift the burners off the brass orifices. Make sure all the holes are clear. If they are clogged they need to be drilled out. You should not have yellow in the flames in the burner tube.... kinda looks like the are sooting. This causes flames to come out the bottom of the burners.

There is an adjustment screw on the main gas valve, usually under a cover screw. It will be near where the small pipe that goes to the pilot light.

One time this happened to me on a gas stove. I used an electric drill with drill bit to clean it out. It will only work if the line is straight, no bends in the line.

Defective thermocouple. It is the metal tube that is in the flame of the pilot light.

Hi there. Hi limit may be tripping off due to high oil temperature (power supplying the gas valve is connected in series with the hi limit). Verify if the thermostat is not shorted, also please check the thermostat calibration if it is good. Regards.

I need to replace it

Frymaster Dean... • 51 views • 0 helpful votes

Likely one of two things. The thermostat is stuck on or your gas valve is bad. Identify one of the wires going to the thermostat and disconnect it, if the burners shut off with the thermostat disconnected the problem is the thermostat, otherwise it will be the gas valve. All this assumes the unit is wired correctly and has not been changed. If your burners are not shutting off due to a bad gas valve or thermostat you are at risk to have a fire! Be sure to get this fixed immediately and it is unsafe to operate the fryer until repaired.

Hi there!Check the hi-limit by removing the wire at terminals and connecting an ohm-meter across, it should have continiuty, if it does not have, better replace it with a new one.Regards.
