The thermocouple has gone out. Replacement will be needed.

Please provide the model number of your unit and I will see if I can locate the part for you.

Best, THS

i only used the fryer one time last thanksgiving can it go out that quickly
You wouldnt think so, but it does happen. Any time you store any appliance there are componants that can go bad over the time they sit unused. This is especially true with refrigerators. They are sealed units but if left unused they will leak like a sieve.
