Electrical Grounding Instructions:
This appliance is equipped with a three prong (grounding)plug for your protection against
shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
Electrical diagram located on inside of door.
GAS CONNECTION
All gas supply connections and any pipe joint compound must be
resistant to the action of propane gases.
The gas inlet is located on the lower rear of the fryer. Codes require that a gas shutoff
valve be installed in the gas line ahead of the fryer.
The gas supply line must be at least the equivalent of ½” (12.7 mm) iron pipe for single
units and 1-1/4” (31.75 mm) for batteries. If using the optional quick-disconnect flex hose,
¾” (19 mm) iron pipe for single units and 1-1/4” (31.75 cm) iron pipe for batteries.
Make sure the pipes are clean and free of obstructions, dirt, and piping compound. A
battery requires one or two connections of appropriate size for the gas requirement.
Prior to lighting, check all joints in the gas supply line for leaks.
Use soap and water solution. Do not use an open flame.
VULCAN-HART
F-32933 Rev. G (May 2009)
-7-
GRDF / GRCF SERIES GAS FRYERS
After piping has been checked for leaks, fully purge gas pipes to remove air.
GAS PRESSURES (ALL MODELS):
The gas pressure should be set at 4” W.C. (Water Column) (0.8 kPa) for natural gas and
10” W.C. (2.75 kPa) for propane gas. If incoming pressure exceeds ½ PSI (3.45 kPa), an
additional pressure regulator must be installed.
TESTING THE GAS SUPPLY PIPING SYSTEM:
When test pressures exceed ½ PSI (3.45 kPa), the fryer and its individual shutoff valve
must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system.
When test pressures are ½ PSI (3.45 kPa) or less, the fryer must be isolated from the gas
supply piping system by closing its individual shutoff valve.
Fryers with Casters:
Separate instructions for installing casters are included with the casters:
Š
The installation shall be made with a connector that complies with the
Standard for Connectors for Movable Gas Appliances, ANSI Z21.69 or Connectors

INSTRUCTIONS TO REMOVE & REPLACE KLEENSCREEN PLUS® FILTER ENVELOPE
FOR ABSOLUTE FILTRATION & MAXIMUM FLOW RATE WE RECOMMEND YOU CHANGE YOUR FILTER
ENVELOPES AT EVERY OIL CHANGE (10-14 DAYS DEPENDING ON OIL USAGE).
Step 1
Discard all oil from the filter vessel, (see pages 23 or 24). When the
filter pan is empty, use a spatula and scrape off all debris left on the
filter envelope and in the filter pan.
Step 2
Unscrew “S” Tube from filter by turning the Bottom Knurled fitting
counter- clockwise.
Step 3
Remove SST Closure Clip by lifting off one side.
Step 4
Remove SST Filter Screen Insert and wash insert with hot water and
dry thoroughly. The Filter Screen Insert is dishwasher safe. Place the
insert into a new KleenScreen PLUS® Filter envelope.
DO NOT WASH FABRIC ENVELOPE
Step 5
Place Filter Screen Insert into the fabric envelope making sure that the
holes line up. Fold over the other end of the envelope and place SST
Closure Clip on – hinge over and firmly press clip all the way down to
secure and seal filter assembly. Making sure that the folded end is face
down; screw “S” Tube Assembly onto the Filter Assembly. Tighten the
Bottom Knurled fitting. When tightened, the “S” Tube assembly should
be perpendicular to the long side of the filter assembly.
Step 6
Reposition the filter tube into the provided clip. Align filter tube so that
the end of the “S” Tube engages the Oil Receptacle fitting each time the
drawer is opened and closed.

Operation
Hot oil and parts can cause burns. Use care when operating,
cleaning and servicing the fryer.
Spilling hot frying compound can cause severe burns. Do not move
fryer without draining all frying compound from the tank.
Never run water or boil out solution through filter and motor / pump. Doing so
will void your fryer warranty.
FILTERING PROCEDURE
Oil Temperature should be 300-350° F. Use the provided crumb scoop to remove and suspend
crumbs on the bottom of the tank before proceeding to Step 1.
1. Do not turn off the Fryer. The power must be on throughout the entire filtering process.
Do NOT heat the fryer during the filtering procedure. Permanent damage to your fry
tank may occur and warranty may be voided.
2. Vulcan recommends adding an oil treatment media to the oil prior to filtering.
3. Make sure that the filter drawer is closed completely and that the suction tube and
receptacle block are in the correct position. Fig. 5

FILTERING TIP:
Open the filtering drawer approximately 1” to allow any oil in the return line to run back into the filter
pan. This will take about 30 seconds to complete. Then open the drawer completely to clean filter
components.
REMOVING EXCESS DEBRIS FROM THE SCREEN FILTER:
1. Pull the filter drawer out and remove the crumb basket and empty any debris into the trash.
2. Remove the filter screen assembly. Scrape debris from the filter screen. Then remove the
insert by unlatching the latch. Clean all parts thoroughly as mentioned in the Assembly
section on page 19.
3. Scrape debris from the bottom of the filter pan and discard in the trash. Clean all parts
thoroughly as mentioned in the Assembly section on page 19. Clean all parts thoroughly as
mentioned in the Assembly section on page 19.
4. Reassemble all filter components after being dried thoroughly as in the Assembly section on
page 19.
FLUSH AND DISCARD:
1. Follow filtering instructions 1-3, however do not put oil treatment media into the fryer. Drain
the fryer oil into the filter pan.
2. Attach the quick disconnect hose to the discard male quick disconnect fitting, (hose not
supplied with fryer – Accessory Option).
3. Place other end of the discard hose into a container that is large enough to retain the
discarded shortening.
4. With the power switch still ON; pull the Yellow Discard Handle Lever Rod towards you. Use
the control that is directly above the discard connection when flushing or discarding
shortening. Press and hold the filter button for at least 3 seconds and the Motor/Pump will
begin to operate. NOTE: Oil will come out immediately out of the nozzle end of the hose.
5. Once the oil has been discarded completely and the filter pan is empty, press the filter button
to turn off the Motor/ Pump. Then push the Discard Lever back in.
6. Disconnect the discard hose. The hose connection will be hot due to the temperature of the
oil that was discarded. Be careful to let the hose drain before putting away. Close the drain
valve and fill the fry tank with new oil.

BOIL OUT PROCEDURE:
Use the Boil Out By-Pass™ drain extension allowing the boil
out solution to exit the fry tank without using the filtering
system. Do not allow water to run through the motor / pump.
Drain the boil out solution into a bucket or place a hose on the
end of the drain extension allowing the other end to flow into a
floor drain. In Fig. 6 the arrow is pointing to the drain
extension. It is threaded into the top coupling of the oil drain
tube. Drain extension needs to be only hand tightened.
Fig. 6
THERMAL OVERLOAD PROTECTION BUTTON:
The motor/pump supplied with the filtering system
has a thermal overload protection circuit that senses
when excess heat occurs due to filtering for long
periods of time or under heavy load prior to
discarding debris buildup. If the thermal overload
protection is tripped, wait 5 minutes and then reset
the motor by pushing in the red button. The arrow in
Figure 7 shows the location of the reset button;
located on the front off the motor / pump facing
towards you.
