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.

My church has a wells 49n 25419 electric deep fryer. It will not get up to temperature. It will boil water but get any hottter. Is it the high limit or thermostat. Thanks for help


If it's just not getting hot enough it's probably the thermostat. If it is the hi limit, the fryer would actually be cutting itself off and you would have to reset it.

High limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can


Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.

Trouble light stays lit and reset button not reseting on one side.


Wells says that a dirty element can cause this. I believe the hi limit is bad. The limit has a capillary tube that breaks very easy. I would inspect this for cracks. Usually right where it connects to the sensing bulb. This is usually the case 99% of the time.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Wells 35lbs fryer double vat


Hello

This sounds to me as if your thermostat is not cycling the unit off. But I can see a second problem as well there should be a high limit cutoff to prevent it from running on and boiling over. I would check both. The thermostat is the dial or knob to regulate temperature and the high limit is the safty to prevent boil over or run on.

Thanks
