Propane Deep Fryer
NOTE: The wiring diagram is attached to the inside of the fryer door. The fryer is equipped with a millivolt control system which does not need an outside power source.
CLEANING: Wash thoroughly with hot, soapy water to remove any film residue and dust or debris before food preparation, then rinse out & wipe dry. Close the drain valve completely and remove the crumb screen. Make sure the screws holding the thermostat and limit control sensing bulbs into the vessel are tight.
WARNING: If gas odors are detected, the gas supply must be shut off at the main shut-off valve and the local gas company or authorized service agency contacted for service.
WARNING: When lighting pilot lights and checking for burner performance, do not stand with your face close to the burners. Gas may build up and cause flash-back and facial bums.
PILOT LIGHT OR RE-LIGHT
- The inlet pipe at the lower rear of the fryer brings incoming gas to the pilot safety control valve, then to the pilot and/or main burners. The pilot is located high in the cabinet center, at the base of the fryer vessel. It will require a long match or taper to light.
- Turn off the manual shut-off valve on the incoming service line.
- Turn the operating thermostat “off’.
- Depress the pilot gas cock dial on the safety control valve and turn “off”.
- Wait at least 5 minutes for any accumulated gas to disperse.
- Fill fryer tank with liquid oil (or water during testing) to the “oil level” line scribed into the rear wall of the tank.
- Open the manual shut-off valve on the incoming service line.
- Apply a lighted match or taper to the pilot burner head.
- Turn the safety valve gas cock to “Pilot”. Depress and hold the dial until the pilot stays lit when the dial is released. This may take a minute or longer.
- If the pilot does not stay lit, depress the dial and re-light it, holding the dial in longer before releasing. It may be necessary to re-light the pilot several times until the lines are purged of trapped air and a constant gas flow is attained.
- When the pilot stays lit, turn the gas cock dial to “on”.
- Turn the thermostat to any “on” setting and watch to make sure the main burner ignites from the pilot.
HEATING THE VESSEL:
These steps will check main burner operation, initial thermostat calibration, and clean the vessel for initial food production.
- Fill the fryer with hot or cold water to the oil level line scribed in the back of the tank.
- Set the operating thermostatltemperature controller dial to 220°F (104°C), just above that of boiling water.
- The main burner will ignite.
- Reset the temperature controller to 200°F (93°C).
