The first thing to do would be to get an electrician to your home to check that the problem is not with your supply. If you ask nicely then the same guy could probably check your fryer for short circuits - the most likely culprit if the problem is intermittent is the plug on the power cord, the cable and the connection inside the fryer where the cord goes in - check that all these are ok. The other possible cause could be a faulty element, however this is unlikely to be an intermittent fault, and it would usually get worse quickly to the point of not working at all. Hope this helps - please post again if not :)

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.

Dash lights quit, gauges and idiot lights work. Help

It's most likely a burnt fuse. Check the fusebox in the cab first. If none of those match the dash, check the underhood fusebox next. A burnt fuse looks like a burnt light bulb. As long as the metal part in the middle is connected it should still be fine.

My ge deep fryer will not turn on


Most of these fryers have trip on the rear of the element unit. Search for the trip and reset, if this does not sort out your problem check the fuse in the plug if you are in Europe.

Ducati monster s2r 800 2005 after big rain nex day no pover after turn keys on

A couple of potentials here: -water in the fusebox -water in the ignition switch -corrosion or bad contact at the starter -blown fuse due to water intrusion I lost a fuse myself on a cross country trip in a heavy rain storm. I lost the ignition and fuel pump fuse at 75 MPH is a blinding 38 degree rainstorm across Nebraska. My solution was blow it out the best I could, install one of my spares, and parked her inside the hotel lobby for 8 hours to let her warm up and dry out. If you find water in any major contacts or fuseboxes, get an air gun on a compressor and blow them out WELL before installing a new fuse, or you're back in the same boat. The fuse box cover waterseal.... DOESN'T. (in my experience...) the Stick

Star deep fat fryer model #EM14

You should determine how many amps the unit is pulling, you will need an ammeter to do this. Continuity through the internal circuit breaker does not determine the current being pulled by fryer only that it can pull current. If the fryer is pulling more than 50 amps the problem will be in the fryer, if it is less than 50 and the breaker trips you could have a faulty breaker.
