Good Afternoon, I am Kevin. Do you have the entire model # ***** that I could look up the safety controls on this fryer?

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correctly. If another tech tries to post to you please only deal with me as this confuses the issue and further I receive no credit then for assisting....just kindly ask the other tech to leave and deal directly with me thanks!

I am a different tech...does the whole unit shut down? Also does it reach the set temp?

the complete unit shuts down. I think it gets to temp then shuts down. If I try again after a cool down of fifteen minutes it starts but shuts down again. Finally it did stay on and I could cool with it.y wife said did same thing yesterday.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

OK it is likely tripping off on the high limit, if the high limit is bad on the unit it will cause the unit to shut down, then when it resets after cooling down you can use it.

How do I find the high limit on my unit? And can that act intermittently
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Well normally you would have to reset the high limit so if it is auto resetting, try this when it stops heating do this and see if it will start heating again

Press and hold the Toggle/Clear

button while moving the

FRY/OFF/FILTER switch from

FRY to OFF and back to FRY
