CHAPTER 2: IMPORTANT INFORMATION
2.1 Product Description
The Dean Industries Decathlon Fryers are energy-efficient, tube-style, gas-fired units, design-certified
by the International Approval Services (AGA/CGA), National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and
manufactured to their basic performance and application specifications.
All units are shipped completely assembled with accessories packed inside the fryer vessel. All units
are adjusted, tested and inspected at the factory before shipment. Sizes, weights and input rates of all
models are listed in this manual.
NOTE: The on-site supervisor is responsible for ensuring that operators are made aware of inherent
dangers of operating a deep fat fryer, particularly aspects of oil filtration, draining, and
cleaning of the fryer.
2.2 Principles of Operation
The incoming gas flows through orifices and is mixed with air in the burners to create the correct ratio
for proper combustion. The mixture is ignited at the front end of each heat tube by the pilot light.
Internal diffusers slow the flame as it goes through the burner tube. This slower and more turbulent
flame gives much better heat transfer to the walls of the tubes, thereby heating the oil better.
2.3 Rating Plate
This is attached to the inside right-hand corner of the front door panel. Information provided includes
the model and serial number of the fryer, BTU/hr input of the burners, outlet gas pressure in inches WC
and whether the unit has natural or propane gas orifices.
DANGER
Fryers MUST be connected ONLY to the gas type identified on the attached rating
plate.
2.4 Pre-Installation
A. General: Only a licensed gas fitter should install any gas-fired equipment.
1.
A manual gas shut-off valve must be installed in the gas supply line ahead of the fryers for
safety and ease of future service.
2-1
2.
The Dean Decathlon gas fryers require 120 VAC 60 cycle or 230VAC single-phase 50-hertz
(International/CE) electrical service and are equipped with a 16-3 SJT grounded flexible power
cord for a direct connection to the power supply. Amperage draw for each unit depends on the
accessories supplied with the unit. See detailed instructions packaged with the fryer.
B. Clearances: The fryer area must be kept free and clear of all combustibles. This unit is designcertified for the following installations:
1.
Commercial installation only (not for household use).
2.
Non-combustible floor installation equipped with factory-supplied 6-inch (15-cm) adjustable
legs or 5-inch (13-cm) casters;
3.
Combustible construction with a minimum clearance of 6-inches (15-cm) side and 6-inches (15cm) rear, and equipped with factory-supplied 6-inch (15-cm) adjustable legs or 5-inch (13-cm)
casters.
CAUTION
Local building codes usually prohibit a fryer with its open tank of hot oil from being installed
beside an open flame of any type, whether a broiler or the open burner of a range.

3. CE/EXPORT STANDARDS: Fryer installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of
local codes, to the appropriate national or European Community (CE) standards.
2-2
2.5 Air Supply and Ventilation
Keep the area around the fryer clear to prevent obstruction of combustion and ventilation airflow as well
as for service and maintenance.
A. Do not connect this fryer to an exhaust duct.
B. Correct installation and adjustment will ensure adequate airflow to the fryer system.
C. A commercial, heavy-duty fryer must vent its combustion wastes to the outside of the building.
A deep-fat fryer must be installed under a powered exhaust hood, or an exhaust fan must be
provided in the wall above the unit, as exhaust gas temperatures are approximately 800-1000°F
(427-538°C). Check air movement during installation. Strong exhaust fans in the exhaust hood
or in the overall air conditioning system can produce slight air drafts in the room.
D. Do not place the fryer’s flue outlet directly into the plenum of the hood, as it will affect the gas
combustion of the fryer.
E. Never use the interior of the fryer cabinet for storage or store items on shelving over or behind
the fryer. Exhaust temperatures can exceed 425ºC and may damage or melt items stored in or
near the fryer.
F. Adequate distance must be maintained from the flue outlet of the fryer(s) to the lower edge of
the filter bank. Per NFPA Standards No. 96, a minimum of 18-inches (45-cm) should be
maintained between the flue(s) and the lower edge of the exhaust hood filter.
G. Filters and drip troughs should be part of any industrial hood, but consult local codes before
constructing and installing any hood. The duct system, the exhaust hood and the filter bank
must be cleaned on a regular basis and kept free of grease.
2.6 Equipment Installed at High Altitudes:
A. The fryer input rating (BTU/hr) is for elevations up to 2,000 feet (610-m). For elevations above
2,000 feet (610-m), the rating should be reduced four percent (4) for each additional 1,000 feet
(305-m) above sea level.
B. The correct orifices are installed at the factory if operating altitude is known at time of the
customer’s order.
2.7 Receiving and Unpacking Equipment:
A. Check that the container is upright. Use an outward prying motion - no hammering - to remove
the carton. Unpack the fryer carefully and remove all accessories from the carton. Do not
discard or misplace these, as they will be needed.
B. After unpacking, immediately check the equipment for visible signs of shipping damage. If
damage has occurred, contact the carrier and file the appropriate freight claims. Do not contact
the factory. Shipping damage responsibility is between the carrier and the dealer.
2-3
If your equipment arrives damaged:
1. File claim for damages immediately, regardless of extent of damage.
2. Visible loss or damage: Be sure this is noted on the freight bill or express receipt and is
signed by the person making the delivery.
3. Concealed loss or damage: If damage is unnoticed until equipment is unpacked, notify freight
company or carrier immediately, and file a concealed damage claim. This should be done
within fifteen (15) days of date of delivery. Be sure to retain container for inspection.
NOTE: Dean Does Not Assume Responsibility for Damage or Loss Incurred in Transit.
C. Take off the filter support brace and remove the filter pan from the cabinet of the two left fryers.
D. Casters are pre-installed on the fryer unit and the carton is furnished with three unloading ramps.
Remove the braces from the front casters by taking out the securing bolts. Carefully roll the unit
down the ramps from the front (cooking side).
E. Remove all plastic skin from sides, front, and doors of the unit. Failure to do this will melt the
plastic and make it very difficult to remove later.

CHAPTER 3: INSTALLATION
3.1
Installing the Fryer
A. Initial Installation: If the fryer is installed with legs, do not push the fryer to adjust its
position. Use a pallet or lift jack to lift the fryer slightly, then place the fryer where it is to be
installed.
B. Relocating the fryer: Remove all weight from each leg before moving a fryer with legs
installed. Do not slide the fryer on the legs.
C. If a leg becomes damaged, contact your service agent for immediate repair/replacement.
3.2 Leveling the Fryer (Fryers equipped with legs only)
A. All Installations: If the floor is uneven or has a definite slope, it is recommended to place
the fryer on an even platform.
B. Place a carpenter’s spirit level across the top of the fryer and level the unit both front-to-back
and side-to-side. If it is not level, the unit may not function efficiently, the oil may not drain
properly for filtering and in a line-up it may not match adjacent units.
C. Adjust to the high corner and measure with the spirit level. If floor is uneven, level the unit
with the screw adjustments on each leg (ensure minimum clearances as discussed in
Chapter 2 are maintained during the leveling procedure).
D. Re-leveling: If the fryer is moved, re-level the fryer following the above instructions.
E. The install must be reviewed at the time of installation to ensure it meets the intent of these
instructions.
CAUTION
Fryers must be at room temperature, empty of oil, and if fitted with legs lifted during
movement to avoid damage and possible bodily injury.
WARNING
Hot shortening can cause severe burns. Avoid contact. Under all circumstances, oil
must be removed from the fryer before attempting to move it to avoid oil spills, and
the falls and severe burns that could occur. This fryer may tip and cause personal
injury if not secured in a stationary position. See instruction manual.
3-1
3.3 Installing Casters and Legs
A. Install casters and/or legs near where the fryer is to be used, as neither is secure for long
transit. The fryer cannot be curb mounted and must be equipped with either legs or casters
provided.
B. After unpacking, use a pallet or lift jack to raise the unit approximately 12 inches before
installing the casters.
C. Align the caster or leg base holes with the leg support assembly and insert bolt. Install the
washers and nut hand-tight, and repeat for all four holes in caster/leg base assembly.
D. Tighten the caster/leg against the leg support assembly by using appropriate tools. Ensure
that all four bolts are evenly tightened.
E. For fryers with casters, there are no built-in leveling devices. The floor where the fryers
are installed must be level.

(*) When exceeding 18 feet (6 meters) for a configuration of more than four fryers, it is necessary
to provide a 1 1/4" (33 mm) rigid gas connection.
CAUTION
All connections must be sealed with a joint compound suitable for the gas being
used, and all connections must be tested with a soapy solution before lighting any
pilots.
3-3
3.5 Gas Connections (cont.)
B. Rigid Connections: Check any installer-supplied intake pipe(s) visually and clean threading
chips, or any other foreign matter before installing into a service line. If the intake pipes are
not clear of all foreign matter, the orifices will clog when gas pressure is applied. Seal pipe
joints with a sealant resistive to LP gas. When using thread compound on gas piping, use
very small amounts and only on male threads. Use a pipe thread compound that is not
affected by the chemical action of LP gases. DO NOT apply thread compound to the first
two pipe threads--doing so will cause clogging of the burner orifices and control valve.
C. Manual shut-off valve: This gas service supplier-installed valve must be installed in the gas
service line ahead of the fryers in the gas stream and in a position where it can be reached
quickly in the event of an emergency.
D. Regulating Gas Pressure: The fryer and shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply during any pressure testing of the system.
1. External gas regulators are not normally required on this fryer. A safety control valve
protects the fryer against pressure fluctuations. If the incoming pressure is in excess of
½" PSI (3.45 kPa/35 mbar), a step-down regulator will be required.
CAUTION
The fryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its
individual manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at pressures equal to or less than ½ PSI (3.45 kPa/35 mbar).
The fryer and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test
pressures in excess of ½ PSI (3.45 kPa/35 mbar).
E. Manifold Pressure: Your local service technician should check the manifold pressure with a
manometer.
1. Check the rating plate for manifold gas pressures. Natural gas units normally require 4"
W.C., and propane units normally require 11" W.C. gas pressure.
2. Double check the arrow forged into the bottom of the regulator body, which shows gas
flow direction. It should point downstream towards the fryers. The air vent cap is also
part of the regulator and should not be removed.
3. If a vent line from the gas pressure regulator is used, it should be installed in
accordance with local codes or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1-(latest edition).
3-4
3.5 Gas Connections (cont.)
WARNING
Use a diluted soap solution to find potentially dangerous gas leaks when making
new connections.
F. Regulators can be adjusted in the field, but it is recommended that they not be tampered with
unless the part is known to be out of adjustment or serious pressure fluctuations are found to
exist and can be solved no other way.
G. Only qualified service personnel should make adjustments to the regulators.
H. Orifices: The fryer can be configured to operate on any available gas. The correct safety
control valve, appropriate gas orifices, and pilot burner are installed at the factory. While the
valve can be adjusted in the field, only qualified service personnel should make any
adjustments with the proper test equipment.
WARNING
If gas odors are detected, the gas supply must be shut off at the main shut-off valve.
The local gas company or FASC should be contacted immediately to rectify the
problem.
I.
Flexible Couplings, Connectors and Casters:
1. If the fryer is to be installed with flexible couplings and/or quick-disconnect fittings, the
installer must use a heavy-duty AGA design-certified commercial flexible connector of
at least 3/4" NPT (with suitable strain reliefs), in compliance with the Standard for
Connectors for Movable Gas Appliances, ANSI Z21.69-(latest edition) and Addenda
Z21.69a-(latest edition). Quick disconnect devices must comply with the Standard for
Quick-Disconnect Devices for Use with Gas Fuel, ANSI Z21.41-(latest edition).
WARNING
Do not attach accessories to this fryer unless fryer is secured from tipping. Personal
injury may result.
2. The fryer must be restrained by means independent of the flexible coupling or
connector in order to limit the movement of the fryer. Clips are located on the back
panel of the fryer for the attachment of restraints.
3. If disconnection of the restraint is necessary, this restraint must be reconnected after the
fryer has been returned to its originally installed position.
3-5
3.5 Gas Connections (cont.)
J. After hook-up, bleed the gas line of air to ensure that the pilot light will ignite quickly.
K. CE Standards: If the unit is to be installed with flexible coupling, use a commercial flexible
coupling certified as NF D 36123 (or other national standard) or a quick disconnect device
certified NF D 36124 (or other national standard).
3.6 Adjustments/Adaptation To Different Gases
A. Proper operation of appliances requires operator to scrupulously inspect the following
adjustments in terms of:
1. Gas inputs and pressures.
2. Voltage and polarities of electrical power supplies.
B. Dean gas fryers are manufactured to use the type of gas and pressure specified on the rating
plate. When changing to a different gas, adaptation must be performed by qualified
personnel. Failure to use qualified personnel will void the Frymaster warranty.

CHAPTER 4: FRYER OPERATIONS
4.1 Initial Start-up
A. Cleaning: New units are wiped clean with solvents at the factory to remove any visible signs
of dirt, oil, grease, etc. remaining from the manufacturing process, then coated lightly with
oil. Before any food preparation, wash thoroughly with hot, soapy water to remove any film
residue and dust or debris then rinse out and wipe dry. Also wash any accessories shipped
with the unit. Close the drain-valve completely and remove the crumb screen covering the
heating tubes. Make sure the screws holding the thermostat and high-limit control sensing
bulbs into the vessel are tight.
CAUTION
Do not bang fry baskets or other utensils on the fryer’s joiner strip. The strip is
present to seal the joint between the fry vessels. Banging fry baskets on the strip to
dislodge shortening will distort the strip, adversely affecting its fit. It is designed for
a fit tight and should only be removed for cleaning.
4.1.1 Pilot Lighting Procedures, Standing Pilot Only
Initial Pilot Light: All Dean fryers are tested, adjusted and calibrated to sea level conditions before
leaving the factory. Adjustments to assure proper operation of pilot may be necessary on installation
to meet local conditions, low gas pressure, differences in altitude and variations in gas
characteristics. These adjustments correct possible problems caused by rough handling or vibration
during shipment, and are to be performed only by qualified service personnel. These adjustments
are the responsibility of the customer and/or the dealer and are not covered by the Dean Industries
warranty.
The inlet pipe at the lower rear of the fryer brings incoming gas to the pilot safety control valve, then
to the pilot and main burners. The pilot is located high in the cabinet center, at the base of the fryer
vessel.
Light the pilot as follows:
1. Turn off the manual shut-off valve on the incoming service line.
2. Turn the operating thermostat or the computer off.
3. Depress the pilot gas cock dial on the combination control valve and turn to "OFF".
4. Wait approximately 5 minutes for accumulated gas to disperse.
4-1
4.1.1 Pilot Lighting Procedures, Standing Pilot Only (cont.)
Note: Inspect high-limit thermostat/temperature probe location prior to filling fry
vessel with water or oil. Ensure that connecting hardware is intact and bulbs are
properly attached.
5. Fill the fry vessel with oil or water to the bottom OIL LEVEL line scribed on the vessel
back. Ensure that heating tubes are covered in liquid prior to engaging burners.
6. Open the manual shut-off valve on the incoming service line.
7. Apply lighted match or taper to the pilot burner head.
8. Turn the gas cock dial on the control valve to "Pilot", then depress and hold the dial until
the pilot stays lit (approximately 1 minute).
9. If the pilot fails to stay lit, depress the dial and re-light the pilot, depressing the dial
longer before releasing.
10. When the pilot stays lit, turn the gas cock dial to "ON".
11. Turn the operating thermostat, computer or controller on, then ensure the main burners
ignite from the pilot.
WARNING
When checking for burner ignition or performance, do not get too close to the
burners. Slow ignition can cause possible flashback, increasing the potential for
facial and body burns.
4.1.2 Pilot Lighting Procedures, Electronic Ignition Systems
WARNING
Never use a match or taper to light pilot on this ignition system.
1. Turn gas "ON".
2. Turn electric power "ON" with the appropriate rocker switch or controller/computer.
3. The electric module will turn on the pilot gas supply and the electric ignition spark. The
spark will ignite the pilot gas. The presence of the pilot flame is then proved by the
electric flame sensor, which in turn allows the main gas supply to be turned on. The
operating thermostat or computer/controller controls the fryer after ignition is proved.
4-2
4.1.2 Pilot Lighting Procedures, Electronic Ignition Systems (cont.)
WARNING
In the event of prolonged power failure, the ignition module will shut down and lock
out the system. Turn the unit power “OFF” and them back “ON” after power has
been re-established.
4. If the pilot flame fails, the ignition module will shut down and lock out the system. To
restart, turn the electric power "OFF", wait approximately 5 minutes for the system to
recycle itself, then turn the power "ON" again. Repeat Steps 1-3.

Setup
WARNING
Fill the frypot to the bottom OIL LEVEL line with vegetable oil before pressing the
ON/OFF switch
to the "ON" position. Failure to do so could damage the frypot.
1. Fill the frypot with vegetable oil to the bottom OIL LEVEL line located on the rear of the frypot.
This will allow for oil expansion as heat is applied. Do not fill cold oil any higher than the
bottom line; overflow may occur as heat expands the oil. If solid shortening is used, pack solid
shortening into the cool-zone of the frypot. Continue to pack shortening in frypot to the bottom
OIL LEVEL line.
2. Ensure that the power cord(s) is/are plugged into the appropriate receptacle(s). Verify that the
face of the plug is flush with the outlet plate, with no portion of the prongs visible.
3. Ensure that the vegetable oil level is at the top OIL LEVEL line when the vegetable oil is at its
programmed cooking temperature. It may be necessary to add vegetable oil to bring the level up
to the proper mark, after the oil has reached the programmed cooking temperature. If solid
shortening is used, the MELT cycle MUST be used to melt the shortening. It may be necessary
to add solid shortening to bring the level up to the proper mark after the packed shortening has
melted. DO NOT DISABLE OR CANCEL THE MELT CYCLE UNTIL ALL SOLID
SHORTENING HAS MELTED.

burns.
All stainless steel fryer cabinet parts should be wiped regularly with hot, soapy water during the day,
and with a liquid cleanser designed for stainless steel at the end of each day.
A. Do not use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleansers or powders.
B. Do not use a metal knife, spatula or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel! Scratches
are almost impossible to remove.
C. If it is necessary to scrape the stainless steel to remove any encrusted materials, soak the area
first to soften the deposit, then use a wood or nylon scraper only.

CHAPTER 7: TROUBLESHOOTING
7.1 General
CAUTION
This appliance may have more than one power supply connection point. Disconnect
all power cords before servicing.
The problems and possible solutions covered are those most commonly encountered.
To troubleshoot, perform the test set-up at the beginning of each condition. Follow each step in
sequence.
WARNING
Inspection, testing, and repair of gas or electrical equipment should be performed by
qualified personnel.
Use EXTREME CARE when testing Live Electrical Circuits.
7.2 Pilot Burner Malfunction
A. Pilot will not ignite; no evidence of gas at pilot burner.
1. Check that gas valve is open and gas is present at the gas valve.
2. Check pilot burner orifice for dirt or lint.
3. Remove pilot burner gas-supply line and check for contamination; blow out if necessary,
then reinstall.
B. Pilot burner ignites but will not remain lit when gas valve manual knob is released.
1. Check that thermocouple lead is properly screwed into thermocouple connection bushing
on gas valve.
2. Remove end of thermocouple lead from thermocouple connection bushing and clean with
fine sandpaper or emery cloth.
3. Pilot flame may be too high or too low. Adjust pilot flame adjustment screw so that pilot
flame extends about ¾-inch (19-mm) above the top of the pilot burner.
4. Check all connections for cleanliness and security.
7-1
7.2 Pilot Burner Malfunction (cont.)
C. Pilot flame of proper size, but is unstable.
thermocouple completely at all times.
Flame wavers and does not envelop the
1. Check for drafts that might be caused by air conditioning equipment or make-up air
apparatus. Turn air-moving equipment off and recheck the pilot.
CAUTION
Do not attempt to turn the adjustment past the stops or the controller will be
damaged.
7.3
Main Burner Malfunctions
A. Main burner will not come “ON”; gas not detected at main burner.
1.
Check that the gas valve is open.
2.
Check that the pilot is ignited and is operating properly.
3.
Check the high limit switch for continuity.
4.
The combination gas valve may be defective; replace if necessary.
B. Main burner flames are small and appear lazy; shortening does not come up to temperature
quickly.
1.
Check gas pressure at the pressure tap of the gas valve. Use dial type or standard watertype U-gauge manometer. With burner in operation, the pressure should be 4" WC (10
mbar) for natural gas, and 11" WC (27.5 mbar) for propane.
2.
If not, remove the pressure regulator adjustment cover. Use screwdriver to turn the
adjusting screw for proper pressure. Replace cover, re-check pressure and re-install
pressure tap plug.
C. Signs of excessive temperature; shortening scorches and quickly becomes discolored.
1.
Check operating thermostat. May be out of adjustment or calibration. Recalibrate if
necessary.
2.
Check gas pressure as outlined above.
3.
Shortening used is of inferior quality and/or shortening has been used too long. Replace
shortening.
4.
Ensure vessel is clean when refilling with new shortening.
7-2
7.3
Main Burner Malfunctions (cont.)
D. Fryer will not reach the temperature setting and/or runs erratically.
1.
Incorrect location of sensor probe or defective temperature sensor.
2.
Loose wiring/wire connection
E. Fryer shortening temperature cannot be controlled; fryer runs at high-limit temperature.
1.
Defective operating thermostat or temperature probe.
2.
Call Service Technician.
7.4 Thermatron Calibration
The Thermatron controller maintains a specific oil/shortening temperature through a sensing probe
mounted in the fry vessel. If the actual temperature of the cooking oil varies from the controller dial
setting, loosen the knob setscrew and rotate the knob until it agrees with that of the actual oil
temperature. When obtaining actual oil temperature, ensure that the thermometer is inserted within
one-inch of the vessel-mounted probe. If proper calibration cannot be achieved, contact your service
agent for repair.
