MAY OCCUR AND CAUSE UNSAFE CONDITIONS.
Figure 2
Main Gas
Connection
Connect the fryer to the main gas supply line at the
rear of the fryer. The piping should be a minimum of
3/4" NPT supply pipe for a single fryer at the burner
manifold. Batteries require larger supply lines. Installation must conform to the current local codes and
National Fuel Gas Code (U.S.) ANSI Z223. 1/NFPA 54
(latest edition), Natural Gas Installation Code CAN/
CGA-B149.1 or Propane Installation Code CAN/CGAB149.2 (latest edition).
A 3/4" NPT manual gas valve is factory installed with
each floor model fryer (for single fryers and batteries), except for 10x11AA – 20AA models which use a
1/2" NPT valve. The required gas pressure for proper
operation of each fryer is 4" water column for natural
gas and 10" water column for Propane gas at the
burner manifold. Remove the allen head test plug on
the gas manifold and use a manometer to check the
gas pressure.
GAS FRYER - SERIES PRE-2000
In-line pressure regulators are not supplied by Keating. They are to be provided and installed by others as
directed by local codes.
NOTE: If more than one gas fryer is on the same supply line, you may require a larger line. Consult your
local gas company to assure adequate volume and
pressure. Refer to serial plate for proper gas requirements for your particular model.
NOTE: Piping for a battery should be at least 1-1/4"
to 1-1/2" IPS, depending on total BTU input. Consult
your local gas supplier for appropriate battery piping
size.
NOTE: We recommend that solid shortening not be
used in AA and CMG Model fryers as they are not
equipped with a melt cycle. If solid shortening is used,
it should be melted prior to filling the fryer vessel.
Damage done by melting solid shortening in the fryer
vessel will void the warranty.
BE SURE THE HEAT TRANSFER TUBES ARE COMPLETELY COVERED WITH OIL BEFORE SWITCHING
THE FRYER ON. IF OIL LEVEL DROPS BELOW TOP
OF HEAT TRANSFER TUBES, SEVERE DAMAGE TO
FRYER AND INJURY TO OPERATOR MAY RESULT.
GAS LEAK TESTING
Prior to lighting your fryer:
1. Make sure all thermostats, switches and safety
valves are in the “OFF” position.
2. Turn main On/Off manual gas valve to the “ON”
position.
3. Have your plumber or gas company check for
leaks with a soap solution or sniffer.
(NEVER check with an open flame!)
WATER IN ANY FORM AND HOT OIL DON'T MIX!
OIL EXPANDS WHEN HEATED. THE FILL LEVEL LINE
HAS BEEN PROVIDED TO ENSURE OPTIMUM COOKING WHILE ENSURING THE SAFETY OF THE OPERATOR. DO NOT OVERFILL THE FRYER VESSEL.
Figure 3
Fill Level Line
4. Have your plumber or gas company
representative light the constant pilot.
(Not necessary if your fryer has a spark ignitor.)
GAS PRESSURE AT MANIFOLD
NATURAL Gas - 3.0 in. W.C.
LP Gas - 10.0 in. W.C.
MINIMUM INCOMING GAS PRESSURE
NATURAL Gas - 7.0 in. W.C.
LP Gas - 11.0 in. W.C.
NOTE: It is estimated that half of all service calls
made on Keating Instant Recovery® Fryer result from
an inadequate gas supply. During installation, have
a gas company representative make certain that the
fryer is receiving adequate gas pressure and volume
(see “Installation” or your serial plate on the fryer
door).
PROPANE GAS MAY EVENTUALLY LOSE ITS ODOR
AND PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN TO ASSURE
THAT IT IS NOT PRESENT EVEN THOUGH YOU DO
NOT DETECT AN ODOR. IF THERE IS ANY DOUBT,
YOU SHOULD CALL YOUR LOCAL PROPANE GAS
SUPPLIER FOR ASSISTANCE.

GAS FRYER - SERIES PRE-2000
Oil Breakdown
As part of a “Preventive Maintenance Program”, the
oil in your fryer needs to be filtered regularly to avoid
breakdown. The initial investment in the frying system
is less than the total overall costs of oil during the life
of the fryer, and with regular filtering, you can realize
substantial savings in oil costs as well as maintenance
charges.
LIMITED CALIBRATION
(Less than 25° difference)
You will need:
One screwdriver with 1/8" wide flat blade
One accurate fryer thermometer
Figure 9
Thermostat calibration with knob on
1. *For 14" Gas Fryers:
• The end of thermostat bulb should touch the
burner tube.
2. For 10x11", 18" + Up Gas Fryers:
• If the bulb is too loose, the paper will slip
through with little or no resistance. A fryer with
a thermostat bulb that is too loose will
overshoot.
Overshoot: The thermostat takes a long time
to cycle and then misses its preset temperature
by 20°F - 40°F yielding a poor quality product.
overshoot.
• If the bulb is too tight, the paper will either not
pull through or it will tear. A fryer with a
thermostat bulb that is too tight will short cycle.
Short Cycle: The thermostat will cycle rapidly
while the fryer is in the idle mode; the
temperature will be erratic.
Figure 10
1. Set thermostat to desired frying temperature.
2. Allow fryer to cycle three times.
Thermostat Bulb Positioning 10x11, 18 & Up
3. Place an accurate thermometer in the oil at the
tip of the thermostat bulb.
NOTE: Locate thermometer in same position for
every calibration.
REQUIRED TEST THERMOSTAT
Multimeter (for testing continuity)
4. If calibration of fryer is found to be less than 25°F
off, simply loosen three dial plate retaining screws,
rotate dial plate to match thermometer reading and
tighten screws. If it is more than 25°F off contact a
qualified service company..
CHECKING CONTINUITY WITH THE MULTIMETER
1. Rotate the thermostat shaft until an audible click
is heard.
2. Rotate the thermostat shaft left and right ten
times causing the switch to click on and off ten
times, while using the Multimeter to verify continuity.
3. If the switch does not show continuity during all
ten trials, replace the thermostat.
DO NOT ADJUST THE THERMOSTAT SET SCREW - IT
VOIDS ANY WARRANTY ON PART.
Thermostat Bulb Positioning
DISASSEMBLING THE THERMOSTAT WILL VOID THE
THERMOSTAT WARRANTY.
BEFORE REPLACING, TEST THERMOSTATS
NOTE: Operational problems can easily be corrected
by thermostat bulb positioning.
1. Set compression ring onto capillary end of bulb
finger tight, 1/2" from end of capillary.
Keating’s patented thermostat application is accurate
within 2°F of the dial setting between 250°F – 350°F.
This accuracy is attained only if the thermostat bulb
is placed properly against the heat transfer tube. To
quickly and accurately test for proper bulb placement,
a single thickness of writing paper should be pulled
through between the tube and the bulb with medium
resistance.*
2. Insert new thermostat bulb through control panel
back.
3. Apply oil resistant flexible sealant onto compression fitting thread before installing fitting into fryer
vessel.
1-800-KEATING
| 11
4. Position bent portion of bulb against far right heat
transfer tube and install compression fitting snugly
into fryer vessel.
5. Adjust bulb so at least 2" of bent portion of it is
next to heat transfer tube and tighten compression
nut onto compression fitting for fryer 10x11, 18 &
up. The end of thermostat bulb should touch the
burner tube for 14" fryers.
6. Refill fryer with oil to “fill level line”.
7. Start fryer, preheat and calibrate with
thermometer.
D. Hi-Limit Check
The manual Hi-Limit test button can be used to test
the Hi-Limit Control by pushing and holding the button in until the fryer reaches the Hi-Limit temperature
(425°F). Place an accurate thermometer in the oil. If
the Hi-Limit Control doesn’t shut off the fryer between
425°F and 450°F, have it replaced.
 SERVICE
A properly adjusted Keating Instant Recovery® Fryer,
with no load, will cycle “on” approximately every 2-1/2
to 3 minutes. Each cycle will last 15-25 seconds,
ensuring that the temperature setting is held within a
narrow band.
• The burners when on will produce clear blue flames
directed at the inside walls of the heat transfer
tubes. The radiant’s fins, located towards the rear
of each transfer tube, will glow bright red, helping to
ensure optimum heat distribution into the fryer
vessel. All radiants should be pulled gently forward
until their retaining clips engage the rear of the
tubes.
• On constant pilot models, the pilot light will be
between 3/8" to 1/2" high and will use about 180
BTU’s of gas per hour.
• The runner pilot tube is used to ignite the
burners. Flames from the tube should be clear blue
and between 3/8" to 1/2" high spread across the
entire tube. The burners will ignite almost instantly
after the thermostat calls for heat.
• Every Keating Instant Recovery® Gas Fryer has a
number of safety controls to ensure safe operation
and guard against component failure. Operation of
each control is explained in Service section.
