Re: fryer wont turn on since I cleaned it
I don't service home models, only commercial products, however I would guess that something got wet somehow? Let it dry out for a few days and even a week or so, and then try it. If not, I would junk it and buy another... Susan REO

First, if the power cord is detachable, check the terminals where it plugs to make sure they are clean.
Second, look for a safety interlock button or tab that might have been released when you took it apart for cleaning (these are rare, but it is possible), and make sure it goes back the way it's supposed to when you reassemble it.
Third, take it apart again and see if a flat spade-shaped wire terminal is pulled loose from the switch or some other part. You should be able to trace a wire from the power cord to the breaker (reset button), from there to the power switch, from the switch to the thermostat (unless it is part of the switch), then two wires, one going to the heater and the other to the indicator lamp. The other (white) wire from the power cord goes to the indicator lamp and the heater. Sometimes wires break if they are overstressed during disassembly, so keep an eye out for this while you examine the circuit.
Fourth, find out how to use an ohmmeter to measure circuit continuity, then use it to trace down the break in the circuit (or get an electronics or appliance tech to do it for you).
id look in the right side groove and you will see a tiny microswitch that wont allow power to the element unless its sitting in the cradle I simply took the 4 screws off in the back of the heating element control and by passed it by connecting the 2 red wires and it worked so now I got to find the microswitch but at least I can use it
I had a very simular problem. My fryer would do exactly as you described, but sometimes the pilot light would stay on until the burners tried to re-ignite and then it would go out.
I finally had to call the gas company. They took the pilot light apart and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!
I had the same thing on a Presto deep fryer. I removed that back cover and traced the wires from the AC inlet. One lead goes to a switch that activates when you slide the heater into the case so the heating element will not turn on if it is not in the case. I removed the switch, pushed it in and out a few times, verified that it works with a multimeter, reassembled everything, and "presto", it works. Maybe I was lucky, but it worked for me.
I have a Rival Fryer Model CF250. Was working great for weeks, then after doing a few rounds of wings it quit. All lights were off and no heat.
I took the entire fryer apart and began testing connections for resistance, voltage, etc. They are very basic machines. It appears to me that my failure has to do with a diode, this particular diode sits protected by plastic and held by a srping mechanism, I assume it is the temperature sensor.
I assume that the completed circuit relies on this sensor so it being bad has made power quit.
