CAUTION:
RISK OF
DAMAGE
DO NOT connect or energize
this appliance until all

to the appliance will result if
these instructions are not
followed.
Installer must complete the WARRANTY REGISTRATION / FRYER
CHECKOUT form, and record fryer installation particulars on the
CUSTOMER SERVICE DATA form in this manual.
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTALLER TO verify that this
FRYER and VENTILATOR installation is in compliance with the
specifications listed in this manual, with local code requirements, and
in accordance with the STANDARD FOR VENTILATON CONTROL
AND FIRE PROTECTION OF COMMERCIAL COOKING
OPERATIONS as detailed in N.F.P.A 96 (current edition).
Certain codes require fryers to be restrained with a TETHER or
other RESTRAINT DEVICE. It is the RESPONSIBILITY OF THE
INSTALLER to check with the AUTHORITY HAVING JURISDICTION,
in order to ascertain the applicability of this requirement to THIS
SPECIFIC FRYER INSTALLATION. Any restraint device must allow
access to the back and sides of the unit to provide for servicing and
maintenance, and must not interfere with the operation of the fire
suppression system.
SETUP
Setup the appliance only on a firm, level, non-combustible surface.
Verify local codes for requirements. Concrete, tile, terrazzo or metal
surfaces are recommended. Metal over combustible material may not
meet code for non-combustible surfaces.
Verify vertical clearances. Ventilator fryers require a minimum of
96” (floor to overhead) to allow or adequate air circulation.
IMPORTANT:
If a remote pull station is to
be used, replace the rear
casters with fixed legs.
Verify that the unit sits firmly ON ALL FOUR LEGS / CASTERS.
With a spirit level, check that the appliance is level front-to-back and
side-to-side. With the adjustable legs, adjust as required to level the
appliance. In order to prevent tipping, legs must be adjusted such
that all four legs / casters are in firm contact with the floor.
Adjust rear stabilizer bars (see item f.19, page 2) to within 1/4” (6 mm)
of floor to allow unit to be moved without tipping backwards.
Refer to the Installation Instruction Sheet for required clearances.
Maintain required clearances between the appliance and adjacent
combustible surfaces.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
WARNING
Refer to the nameplate on the front of the fryer. Verify ELECTRICAL
SERVICE POWER. Voltage and phase must match the nameplate
specifications, and available electrical service amperage must meet or
exceed the specifications listed on page 1 of this manual.
SHOCK HAZARD
•
•
Wiring must be no less than12 ga. solid copper wire, rated for at
least 75ºC.
Wire gauge, insulation type and temperature rating , as well
as type, size and construction of conduit, must meet or exceed
applicable specifications of local codes and of the National
Electrical Code.
Fryers are shipped from the factory wired for 3Ø electrical service.
Refer to the three-phase wiring diagram included with this fryer, and
verify that field wiring conforms to this diagram .
NOTE: 30# FRYERS are FIELD CONVERTIBLE to 1Ø.
If single-phase operation is required, refer to the 3-phase to 1-phase
Instructions included with the FRYER, and verify that both internal
wiring and field wiring conform to the included single-phase wiring
diagram.
Electrical connections must
be made by a licensed
electrician.
CAUTION:
SHOCK HAZARD
The ground lug of this
appliance must be connected
to a suitable building ground.
IMPORTANT:
WVAE-55F and WVAE-55FS
units MUST NOT BE
CONVERTED TO SINGLE
PHASE OPERATION.
Conversion of these units to
single phase operation
invalidates the UL listing and
will void the warranty.
IMPORTANT:

INSTALLATION (continued)
DANGER
FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM INSTALLATION
FIRE HAZARD
Fire suppression system
must be charged and certified
by an authorized Ansul®
distributor.
DO NOT attempt to modify or
bypass the fire suppression
system.
An uncontrolled fire can
cause serious injury or death.
NOTE:
If the fire suppression system
is discharged, a buzzer will
sound continuously. The
fryer will remain inoperable
until the fire suppression
system is serviced, recharged
and reset by an authorized
Ansul® distributor.
Charging of the Ansul® Fire
Suppression system must be
in accordance with Ansul®
Design, Installation,
Recharge and Maintenance
Manual, #418087.
Two FUSIBLE LINKS are utilized for automatic actuation, and a
MANUAL PULL STATION for manual actuation. Two NOZZLES
disperse the fire suppression media.
The hood is supplied with a field installed MANUAL PULL STATION,
which must be set-up at the time of the fryer installation by an
authorized Ansul® distributor. See below and following page for
installation details.
If the fryer is installed such that the supplied manual pull station cannot
be installed, a REMOTE MANUAL PULL STATION may be required by
local codes. Any such remote manual pull station must be installed by
an authorized Ansul® distributor in accordance with the AUTHORITY
HAVING JURISDICTION.
When the fire suppression system discharges, fryer heating element(s)
and controls are de-energized, and fire suppression media discharged.
Fire supression media will form an emulsion designed to both smother
and cool the oil.
The PRIMARY 450ºF FUSIBLE LINK is located on the frypot. This link
will melt and discharge the fire suppression system should both the
TEMPERATURE CONTROL THERMOSTAT and the HIGH LIMIT
CONTROL fail. The SECONDARY 280ºF FUSIBLE LINK is located in
the filter plenum, and will protect against a fire in the plenum.
Either link melting will discharge the fire suppression media through
both NOZZLES, and cause a buzzer to sound.
The MANUAL PULL STATION and any similar REMOTE MANUAL
PULL STATION will activate the fire suppression system when the ring
on the pull station is pulled to its full extent.

DANGER
BURN HAZARD
HOT OIL SPILL
Any additional remote pull
station must not be installed on
the front or sides of the fryer
forward of the ventilator side
panels.
Discharge of the fire
extinguishing system into hot
oil will cause hot foam to spill
over from the frypot.
Serious burns and other
injuries can result from contact
with hot oil and from slipping in
spilled oil.
Exclusive Anti-Fire System
In the unlikely event that both
the temperature control
thermostat and hi-limit detector
fail, and the oil temperature
climbs above the safety limit,
the fire suppression system will
discharge, cooling the oil below
the oil’s (approximately) 540ºF
auto-ignition temperature, and
preventing a fire from
occurring.

SAFETY HAZARD (hot oil splatter) and a HEALTH HAZARD
(contamination of the cooking oil).
Install DRIP PAN into mounting bracket behind fryer door at lower right

NOTE: Fryer must be operated in accordance with the instructions in
the accompanying FRYER OPERATION MANUAL.
During normal operation, VENTILATOR POWER ON light will be the
only light illuminated on VENTILATOR WARNING LIGHT PANEL.
If the CHECK FILTERS light illuminates, check both GREASE BAFFLE
and the HEPA AIR FILTER for proper installation.
If REPLACE FILTERS light illuminates, replace both HEPA AIR
FILTER and CHARCOAL FILTER. Always replace both filters at the
same time.
NOTE: REPLACE FILTERS light is a warning that filters are nearing the
end of their service life. The fryer will continue to operate for a period of
time after REPLACE FILTER LIGHT turns ON to allow continued fryer
operation through a peak period. However, filters must be replaced
within a short time period or they will clog, disabling the fryer.
M381 2M-301603 Owners Manual (Supplemental) NFPA Hood
If SERVICE REQUIRED light illuminates, filters are restricted to the point
of insufficient airflow for proper operation. Fryer is shut down until the
underlying clogged filter situation has been corrected. Normally,
replacing both HEPA AIR FILTER and CHARCOAL FILTER will remedy
the condition. Reset the unit by turning FRYER POWER SWITCH to
OFF, then back to FRYER.
A failure of incoming electric power will cause a shut down of the unit.
Reset the unit by turning the FRYER POWER SWITCH to OFF, then
back to FRYER.
