Fryer not heating up and both lights (temp light and reset light is on. have 240 power coming out of the wall. The heating element does heat some, but not enough to heat the oil. Could it be a bad element or perhaps a thermostat?

Gaggenau fryer won't heat


check to see if there is some kind of breaker on the unit, it should be like a reset button. some kind of safety switch has tripped, you need to find out what and where it is.

Tip

Will not power on, powers off, will not heat Pwr light out or goes out.


Like most of the problems listed on FixYa about this Deep Fryer ours worked fine the last time we used it, but we could not get the power light to come on again. I found that there is s SAFETY Micro-switch on the heating element control unit. This switch prevents the heating element from being turned on when it is not in the Fryer Pan. The accuator lever for the switch is located under the guide slides on the heating element control unit. It is a metal lever which is moved as you mount the heating element control unit on the fryer pan. You have to look closely under one of the guide ledges on the heating control unit to see it . The problem is that over time the adjustment of the lever changes as it flexes under use. I simply readjusted the lever by forming it with a pair of long-nosed pliers. CAUTION !!!!!!! You can bend the lever so far that the switch is closed all the time defeating the Safety Switch and create a hazard in that the unit will heat as soon as you plug it in whether inserted in the Fryer Pan or lying out on any surface. This might burn someone or cause a fire. Good Luck

I have a Butterball indoor turkey fryer that lost power and the red light went off, is there a reset button on the fryer


There is a thermal cutoff near the heating element just like all appliances that make heat. It's supposed to stop a house fire but makes these appliance companies a lot of money.

I have a tefal family pro fryer, when i switch it on the green light comes on instead of the red and it will not heat up. why?


Look for a reset button on the unit, Push it, you will hear a "click' then the unit will work. If not, there is an electrical problem, the element, or temp control is bad.

Deep Frier power indicator light is on but will


Most fryers have what is called a hi limit. When the oil temp reaches a certain Max temp this switch opens the circuit and will not allow the unit to heat. On commercial fryers, the hi limit has a really small red plunger button. Push it in to reset.

Deep Fryer Element Won't Heat Up


Look for the reset button and it should come back on. I just did and lights came on immediately.
