3.1 Equipment Setup and Shutdown Procedures
Setup
WARNING
Fill the frypot to the bottom oil level line with oil before pressing the power switch to
the ON position. Failure to do so could damage the frypot.
Fill the frypot with 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.
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.
Set the thermostat knob to the desired frying temperature.
Ensure that the oil level is at the top OIL LEVEL line when it is at its intended cooking temperature.
It may be necessary to add oil to bring it up to the proper level.
Shutdown
1. Press the POWER switch to the "OFF" position (the POWER light will go out).
2. Filter oil and clean fryers.
3. Place the frypot covers on the frypots.
For computer operating instructions, see separate computer manual, 819-5833
that came with the computer.
3.2 Introduction to the Analog Controller
The analog controller, illustrated on the following page, is used to adjust and maintain oil at the
temperature indicated by the thermostat knob. The fryer has two built-in high-limit protection
features. If the temperature in the frypot reaches approximately 410°F (210°C), the computer opens
the heat relay circuit, turning the elements off. If the temperature in the frypot reaches 450°F (232°C),
a mechanical high-limit shuts off electrical power to the elements. The operator should periodically
test each of the high-limit protection features to verify that they are operating correctly. Refer to page
3-3, Analog Controller High-Limit Check, or the Grills/Fryers Maintenance Requirement Card (MRC)
15 for the procedure.
The analog controller has no timing features. Shake, pull, and QA (hold) times must be monitored by
the operator.

4.1 STEP-BY-STEP FILTRATION INSTRUCTIONS
Switch computer to OFF. Slide the filter pan
from the fryer cabinet. Open the filter-cover,
and remove and clean the crumb tray.
Note: The fryer must be at operating
temperature prior to filtering.
Remove and clean the hold-down ring.
Remove and discard the dirty paper or pad.
Remove and clean the filter screen. Make
sure the inside of the pan is free of all food
and breading particles that could prevent the
screen from sealing against the bottom of
the pan.
Replace the filter screen in the bottom of the
pan. Proper operation of the filter system
depends upon proper placement of the filter
screen. Never filter with the screen alone.
4-2
INCORRECT
The filter pad is placed in the pan with the
heavily textured side facing up. When filter
paper is used, one sheet is placed over the
screen and 8-ounces of filter powder is
spread evenly on the top of the paper.
WARNING: Do Not Use Filter Powder on
Filter Pads
CORRECT
Place pad evenly on filter screen. If paper is
used, position the paper on top of the pan
with the edges evenly overlapping. Ensure
that the screen is in place prior to pad or
paper placement.
Install hold-down ring over pad, or use ring
to push filter paper to the bottom of the pan.
Push down firmly to properly seat the
paper/pad.
4-3
Use 8-ounces of filter powder and spread it
evenly over filter paper. Remember, DO
NOT USE filter powder on filter pads.
Replace crumb screen inside the filter pan.
It's imperative that the crumb screen is
installed prior to filtering, for optimum filtersystem performance.
Slide the filter pan back inside fryer cabinet.
Important:
Filter
oil
at
operating
temperature. Filtering at the end of the day
ensures that the oil is at proper temperature.

Oil-Return
Handle
With fryer off, open drain valve.
4-4
When frypot empties into filter pan, turn
return handle to ON.
Filter pump will
activate.
The oil moves through the filter, the frypot
and out the open frypot-drain during filtering.
Allow the oil to circulate through the pot for 5
minutes. This process is called polishing the
oil. Polishing cleans the oil and washes
small particles from the frypot.
Close the drain-valve and leave the filter
pump on.
With the drain-valve closed, the frypot fills
with oil.
4-5
When the filter pan empties, bubbles will
form in the frypot. Allow bubbling to continue
15-20 seconds to ensure the oil return lines
are clear of residual oil.
Turn off filter pump.
Top up oil level. Some oil may be lost in
filtering process.
Fill to top mark (arrow) in frypot. Remember,
the oil is at operating temperature.
4-6
The oil may drop below operating
temperature during the filtering process.
In that case, the fryer will display LowTemp and heat the oil when the computer
is turned back on.
Return fryer to operation, or filter another
frypot in the battery. Remember, only one
frypot can be filtered at a time.
4.2 CARE AND CLEANING OF YOUR FRYER AND FILTER SYSTEM
WARNING: Never operate the fryer or filter system without oil in the system.
Filter oil as often as needed. If a heavy volume of breaded food is fried, filter as often as every hour.
Filtering often increases the life of the oil and produces a better-tasting product. The best rule to
follow is to "filter before you think it is needed". Even with a product such as french fries, you
should filter two to three times per day for best results.
Periodically clean the frypot. Cleaning the frypot, combined with disposing of old oil enhances the
flavor of the food product. Follow these steps when cleaning the frypot:
1. Turn the fryer power switch to the "OFF" position. Screw the drainpipe (provided with your
fryer) into the drain valve. Make sure the drainpipe is firmly screwed into the drain valve and
that the opening is pointing down.
2. Position a metal container with a sealing cover under the drainpipe. The metal container must be
able to withstand the heat of the cooking oil/shortening and hold hot liquids. If you intend to
reuse the oil or shortening, Frymaster recommends that a Frymaster filter cone holder and filter
cone be used when a filter machine is not available. If you are using a Frymaster filter cone
holder, be sure that the cone holder rests securely on the metal container.
3. Open the drain valve slowly to avoid splattering. If the drain valve becomes clogged with food
particles, use the Fryer’s Friend (clean-out rod) to clear the blockage.
DANGER
DO NOT insert anything into the drain from the front to unclog the valve. Hot
oil/shortening will rush out, creating an extreme hazard.
4-7
WARNING
DO NOT hammer on the drain valve with the Fryer’s Friend. This will damage the
drain valve ball and prevent the valve from sealing securely, resulting in a leaky
valve.
4. After draining the oil/shortening, clean all food particles and residual oil/shortening from the
frypot. BE CAREFUL, this material may still cause severe burns if it comes in contact with bare
skin.
5. After the fryer is empty, drain the frypot and close the drain valve. Fill the frypot to the bottom
OIL LEVEL line with water and the correct amount of McD All Purpose Concentrate (APC)
Cleaner HSC. Place the baskets into the frypot and bring the solution to a simmer at 195° F
(91° C) for 1 hour. Turn OFF the fryer, drain the solution into a metal stockpot and wipe the
frypot clean and dry.
NOTE: Do not drain water into the filter pan. Water will damage the filter pump enough to
require replacement. Use a metal stockpot.
6. The filter pan and filter base assembly must be cleaned on initial start-up and periodically
thereafter.
a.
To clean the filter pan, lift pan from the filter base. Take the filter pan to a sink filled with
warm water and grease-cutting detergent.
b.
Scrub the filter pan with the frypot brush shipped with the fryer.
c.
Rinse the filter pan thoroughly to remove the detergent. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth or
paper towels.
d.
To clean the filter base assembly, use a sponge or cloth soaked with a water and greasecutting solution. Be careful not to get water on the pump/motor assembly.
e.
Wipe the filter-base assembly with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel until dry.
CAUTION
All water MUST be removed from the suction tube before inserting filter pan.
f.
Wipe the inside and outside of the tube with clean, dry cloths or paper towels.
g.
Insert filter pan into the filter base assembly.
4-8
NOTE: To drain old oil or boil-out solution, drain in an appropriate container. DO NOT DRAIN
WATER IN THE FILTER PAN.
WARNING
The filter pan MUST never be used to dispose of, or transport spent-cooking oil to
the disposal area. Cooking oil MUST always be allowed to cool below 100°F (38°C)
before transporting to the disposal area. An oil disposal unit (MSDU) is available
and highly recommended for safety.
DANGER
Hot cooking-oil is dangerous and will cause severe burns. Handle with extreme
caution. When discarding old cooking oil, drain from the fryer into an Oil Disposal
Unit (MSDU50) - available from your local distributor. The disposal unit should be
taken to the disposal site and the old cooking oil pumped into the grease storage
container for proper disposal.

System Maintenance Requirement Cards (MRC) 12, 14, 14A, and 15. The cards are distributed with
this manual, but are not an integral part of the manual. A replacement card set may be ordered using
part number 819-5432. To order both the card set and the Operator’s Manual, use part number 8195569. To order both the card set and the Service Manual, use part number 819-5625.
In addition to maintenance referenced in MRC cards, Frymaster recommends that the fryer be
inspected at least annually by a Factory Authorized Service Technician as follows:
•
Inspect the cabinet inside and out, front and rear for excessive oil build-up and/or oil migration.
•
Verify that the heating element wires are in good condition and that leads have no visible fraying
or insulation damage and that they are free of oil migration build-up.
•
Verify that heating elements are in good condition with no carbon/caramelized oil build-up.
Inspect the elements for signs of extensive dry-firing.
•
Verify that the tilt mechanism is working properly when lifting and lowering elements, and that
the element wires are not binding and/or chafing.
•
Verify the heating-element amp-draw is within the allowed range as indicated on the appliance’s
rating plate.
•
Verify that the temperature and high-limit probes are properly connected, tightened and
functioning properly, and that mounting hardware and probe guard are present and properly
installed.
•
Verify that component box and contactor box components (i.e. computer/controller, relays,
interface boards, transformers, contactors, etc.) are in good condition and free from oil migration
build-up and other debris.
•
Verify that component box and contactor box wiring connections are tight and that wiring is in
good condition.
•
Verify that all safety features (i.e. contactor shields, drain safety switches, reset switches, etc.) are
present and functioning properly.
•
Verify that the frypot/cookpot is in good condition and free of leaks and that the frypot/cookpot
insulation is in serviceable condition.
•
Verify that all wiring harnesses and connections are tight and in good condition.
•
Inspect all oil-return and drain lines for leaks and verify that all connections are tight.
5-1
•
Inspect the filter pan for leaks and cleanliness. If there is a large accumulation of crumbs in the
crumb basket, advise the owner/operator that the crumb basket should be emptied into a fireproof
container and cleaned daily.
•
Verify that all O-rings and seals (including those on the Power Shower and on quick-disconnect
fittings) are present and in good condition. Replace o-rings and seals if worn or damaged.
•
Check filtration system integrity as follows:
− With the filter pan empty, place each oil return handle, one at a time, in the ON position. Verify
that the pump activates and that bubbles appear in the cooking oil/shortening (or that gurgling is
heard from the Power Shower port) of the associated frypot.
− Close all oil return valves (i.e., place all oil return handles in the OFF position). Verify proper
functioning of each oil return valve by activating the filter pump using the lever on one of the oil
return handle microswitches. No air bubbles should be visible in any frypot (or no gurgling
should be heard from the Power Shower ports).
− Verify that the filter pan is properly prepared for filtering, then drain a frypot of oil heated to
350°F (177°C) into the filter pan and close the frypot drain valve. Place the oil return handle in the
ON position. Allow all cooking oil/shortening to return to the frypot (indicated by bubbles in the
cooking oil/shortening or, on units with Power Showers, cessation of oil flow from the Power
Shower). Return the oil return handle to the OFF position. The frypot should have refilled in no
more than 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
5.2 Fryer Troubleshooting
Below are simple checks that should be performed before contacting the FASC:
♦ Is the ON/OFF switch in the ON position?
♦ Is the drain valve completely closed?
♦ Is the face of the fryer’s power plug flush with the outlet plate (i.e., no part of the prongs visible)?
♦ Is the circuit breaker set in the ON position and are fuses OK?
♦ Is the computer display blank? Check the hood cord (small cord), ensuring it is pushed fully into
the socket. Also check the ANSUL/hood system.
♦ Does the display show ignition failure? If so, turn off the fryer, open the drain valve slightly then
close it. Attempt to operate the fryer.
♦ Does the fryer remain below setpoint temperature? If so, verify that the face of the plug is flush
with the outlet plate (i.e., no part of the prongs visible). Also check the circuit breaker.
♦ Does the computer display on a split-vat unit show ignition failure? If so, turn off both vats. Turn
on the one that displayed ignition failure first, then turn on the other vat.

5.3 Troubleshooting Built-in Filtration Systems (BIH Series Only)
This section provides an easy reference guide to some of the common problems that may occur during
the operation of built-in filtration systems. The troubleshooting tables that follow are intended to help
correct, or at least accurately diagnose, problems with this equipment. Although the chapter covers
the most common problems reported, you may encounter problems that are not covered. In such
instances, the Frymaster Technical Services staff will make every effort to help you identify and
resolve the problem. The BIH/MH14 Service manual (819-5625) contains more detailed
troubleshooting procedures for the fryer and the filtration system, which should always be performed
by a trained service technician.
When troubleshooting a problem, always use a process of elimination starting with the simplest
solution and working through to the most complex. Never overlook the obvious – anyone can forget
to plug in a cord or fail to close a valve completely. Most importantly, always try to establish a clear
idea of why a problem has occurred. Part of any corrective action involves taking steps to ensure that
it doesn’t happen again. If a controller malfunctions because of a poor connection, check all other
connections, too. If a fuse continues to blow, find out why. Always keep in mind that failure of a
small component may often be indicative of potential failure or incorrect functioning of a more
important component or system.
Before calling a service agent or the Frymaster HOTLINE (1-800-24FRYER):
•
Verify that electrical cords are securely plugged in.
•
Verify that circuit breakers are on.
•
Verify that frypot drain valves are fully closed.
DANGER
Never attempt to move a fryer containing hot cooking oil or to transfer hot cooking oil
from one container to another.
DANGER
Use extreme care when testing electrical circuits. Live circuits will be exposed.
WARNING
Inspection, testing, and repair of electrical equipment should be performed only by
qualified service personnel. The equipment should be unplugged when servicing,
except when electrical tests are required.
