followed.
IMPORTANT:
DO NOT submerge pre-filter
or filter pack in water.
IMPORTANT: If a remote pull station is installed, both rear casters (9)
must be replaced with legs to deter moving the unit. MOVING AN
APPLIANCE WITH A REMOTE PULL STATION WILL DISCHARGE
THE FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM.

503 p/n 304989 OpM WVF-886 Ventless Fryer
NOTE: This Ventless
Cooking System™ is
designed to help reduce odor
emissions, but will not
completely eliminate cooking
odors. Air exchange at the
installation site must comply
with the requirements of the
local jurisdictional authority.
To ensure that odors do not
build-up, recommended
minimum air exchange is 300
- 400 cfm of outside air into
and out of the area where the
unit is used.
NOTE: Fire suppression system and all associated components must
only be serviced by an authorized Ansul® Distributor. All setup,
charging, repair and/or adjustment of the fire suppression system must
be performed by an Authorized Ansul® Distributor ONLY.
PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL INFORMATION (continued)
OPERATIONAL NOTES:
REPLACE PREFILTER and REPLACE FILTER PACK indicator lights
provide a timely warning that a system shut-down is imminent.
The actual time between the indicator light coming on and the loss of
cooking appliance power will depend upon the cooking conditions.
Anytime a dirty PRE-FILTER is replaced, the system airflow will
increase. If the condition of the FILTER PACK is marginal, the
REPLACE FILTER PACK light could then come on. If this happens,
a fresh FILTER PACK must be installed within a reasonably short time.
Loss of airflow through the old filter pack will soon cause a system
shut-down when the airflow falls below minimum vapor capture levels.
KEEP SPARE FILTER PACKS ON HAND.
IMPORTANT: If you decide to “get the most” out of the old filter pack,
and continue to use it until a system shut-down happens, it is advisable
to have a fresh filter pack readily at hand, and have someone available
who is capable of replacing it. Otherwise, you may experience an
extended down time, with consequent associated loss of business.
The manufacturer assumes no liability for loss of business due to
a system shutdown caused by a dirty pre-filter and/or filter pack
(i.e. red SERVICE REQUIRED light is on), when the user fails to
have the proper replacement pre-filter and/or filter pack on hand.
503 p/n 304989 OpM WVF-886 Ventless Fryer

CAUTION:
VENTILATOR OPERATION
HOT SURFACE
BE SURE BOTH FRYER SWITCHES ARE OFF.
1. Press the VENTILATOR POWER switch to ON. The green
VENTILATOR POWER light will glow and the blower fan will start.
After a short time, if all filters are sensed as being in position and
not clogged, the cooktop will be energized. The roll warmer is
energized at all times.
During normal operation, the VENTILATOR POWER light will be
the only light glowing on the upper control panel.
Exposed surfaces can be hot
to the touch and may cause
burns.
2. If the amber CHECK FILTER light glows, one or more filter
elements is out of position. Check the GREASE BAFFLE,
PRE-FILTER and FILTER PACK for proper installation in their
respective positions. Grease baffle and filter pack position are
sensed by mechanical switches. Pre-filter position is sensed by a
vacuum switch.
3. When the amber REPLACE PRE-FILTER light glows, the pre-filter
is nearing the end of its service life. Replace the disposable
PRE-FILTER ELEMENT.
4. When the amber REPLACE FILTER PACK light illuminates, the
HEPA / Charcoal filter pack is nearing the end of its service life.
Replace the FILTER PACK.
503 p/n 304989 OpM WVF-886 Ventless Fryer
Note: The REPLACE PRE-FILTER and REPLACE FILTER PACK
lights are a warning that the indicated filter is near the end of its
service life. The appliance will continue to operate for a period of
time after the light glows to allow continued operation through a
peak period. However, the indicated filters must be replaced within
a reasonably short time period or they will clog and shut down
electrical power to the cooktop. The ventilator blower will continue
to run.
5. When the red SERVICE REQUIRED light glows, either the
pre-filter or filter pack (or both) is clogged and can no longer pass
sufficient air to allow further operation. The ventilator fan continues
to run, but the cooktop is shut down until the underlying clogged
filter situation has been corrected. This can occur when neither
CHANGE...FILTER indicator light is lit, if both pre-filter and filter
pack are marginal. Replacing both the pre-filter and the filter pack
will remedy the situation.
Note: replacing the pre-filter, even though not very dirty, will often
extend the service life of the more expensive filter pack.
Reset the unit by turning the VENTILATOR POWER switch to
OFF, then back ON.
6. A failure of incoming electrical power will cause a shut down of the
unit. After power is restored, reset the unit by turning the
VENTILATOR POWER switch to OFF, then back ON.

too much oil will allow the frypot to overflow during operation.
Fill the FRYPOT with commercial-grade liquid shortening to the
MIN OIL line.
Capacity: 30 pounds (15 pounds each frypot).
For best results, always use top grade commercial shortening
made specifically for frying.
Maintain proper oil level in frypot during operation.
Fig. 11 Oil Level Marking
4. Load either or both baskets no more than 1/2 full with food product.
DO NOT overload fry baskets. For best results, load baskets
uniformly to half full. Hang the basket on the BASKET LIFT.
Fig. 12 Timer
NOTE: If the oil temperature
exceeds 440ºF, hi-limit safety
will shut down the unit, and
red TROUBLE light will glow.
To reset: Allow the oil to cool,
then press the red button on
the back of the element head
until it “clicks” and stays in.
If tripping persists, see
Troubleshooting Suggestions,
page 23.
5. Set the TIMER DIAL to the desired cooking time. Press the "PUSH"
button on the timer to lower the basket into the hot oil.
When food is cooked, the basket will be lifted out of the oil.
Handle the hot basket only by the basket handle.
6. When the heat indicator light cycles off, the fryer is ready to cook
the next load.
7. Reduce temperature control to 225ºF during idle periods to save
power and extend the life of the oil. The fryer will return to
operating temperature in just a few minutes when needed.
8. Keep the fryer clean at all times. Rinse baskets frequently, and dry
thoroughly, in order to prevent oil contamination.
9. Drain the frypot completely after use. Filter the oil daily, or more
often during heavy use.
14
503 p/n 304989 OpM WVF-886 Ventless Fryer
3. Turn the TEMPERATURE CONTROL KNOB to the desired
temperature. The HEAT INDICATOR will glow. When the oil
reaches the desired temperature, the heat indicator will go out. The
heat indicator will go off and on during operation as the thermostat
cycles to maintain temperature.
For best results: DO NOT set temperature control to a temperature
setting higher than is required for the food product.
OPERATION (continued)
CAUTION:
DRAWER WARMER OPERATION (WHEN PROVIDED)
HOT SURFACE
HEATING OPTIONS
1. Moist heat with Humitrol Rack:
a. MOIST operation prevents food from drying out as moisture, as
well as heat, is applied to the warming chamber.
b. To set for MOIST operation, remove Humitrol Rack from
bottom of drawer insert pan and carefully pour approximately 2
quarts of water (½” depth) into the pan. Reinstall rack.
c. The Humitrol Rack decreases the sloshing effect of the water
in the pan when the drawer is opened. When the drawer is
closed, the Humitrol Rack allows steam to rise through the
stored product in the drawer.
d. Place the food directly on the rack. The rack is designed to
support the food off of the steam vents, where water droplets
may form.
e. Check the water level in the pan periodically, and add water
when necessary.
f. Set the front air vent between fully closed and half-open.
Actual setting will depend upon the type and amount of product
stored in the drawer, the temperature setting, and the
frequency with which the drawer is opened.
503 p/n 304989 OpM WVF-886 Ventless Fryer
2. Moist heat with pans:
a. This Wells warmer is designed to accommodate any
combination of standard-size, steam table pans.
b. Place a small amount of water in drawer pan. Place pans in
drawer pan.
c. Check the water level in the pan periodically, and add water
when necessary.
3. Dry heat:
a. For some applications, you may want to store previously
prepared foods in a dry-heat environment. To do so, place the
food directly into the empty (i.e. no water) drawer pan.
Exposed surfaces can be hot
to the touch and may cause
burns.

The hi-limit safety is designed to shut down the fryer if the oil temperature exceeds 440ºF. A build-up
of cooking debris between the heating element and the thermobulb of the hi-limit safety will cause the
hi-limit to trip prematurely. Clean the element so that oil may circulate freely between the element
and the thermobulb. Reset the safety by pressing the red button on the back of the element head.
2
A build-up of cooking debris between the heating element and the thermobulb temperature control
thermostat will cause inconsistent temperatures. Clean the element so that oil may circulate freely
between the element and the thermobulb.
