Equipment Description
Pro H55 Series high-efficiency gas fryers employ a unique infrared burner system that uses up to
43% less energy to cook the same volume as conventional open-burner fryers. Models in this series
include PH55, FMPH55, and FPPH55 variants. PH55 models have no built-in filtration system.
FPPH55 models have a built-in FootPrint Pro filtration system located under the leftmost two fryers
in a battery. FMPH55 models also have a built-in FootPrint Pro filtration system under the leftmost
two stations of a battery. The difference between FPPH55s and FMPH55s is that FPPH55s have no
holding stations (i.e., the battery consists only of fryers) while the FMPH55s have a holding station
at one of the positions in the battery. For example, an FPPH355 consists of three fryers with built-in
filtration; an FMH355, by comparison, consists of two fryers and one holding station with built-in
filtration. A PH355 consists of three fryers without built-in filtration.
All Pro H55 Series Gas fryers are of an open-frypot design with no tubes and have a hand-sized
opening into the deep cold zone, which makes cleaning the stainless frypot quick and easy.
Heating is supplied by a pair of infrared burner assemblies mounted on each side of the frypot.
Combustion air for the burners is supplied by a dedicated blower mounted on the front of the frypot.
Pro H55 Series Gas fryers can be configured for natural gas, propane (LP), or manufactured gas, as
required by the customer.
Each frypot is equipped with a temperature probe for precise temperature control.
All Pro H55 Series Gas fryers come standard with electronic ignition, melt cycle and boil-out mode.
Control options include Computer Magic III.5 computers, solid-state (analog) controllers, digital
controllers, and basket lift timers.
All fryers in this series require an external source of AC electrical power. Units can be configured
for voltages ranging from 100 VAC to 240 VAC.
FMPH55 and FPPH55 fryers are shipped completely assembled. PH55 fryers may require
installation of legs or optional casters at the point of use. All fryers are shipped with a package of
standard accessories. Each fryer is adjusted, tested, and inspected at the factory before crating for
shipment.

CHAPTER 2: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
2.1
General Installation Requirements
Qualified, licensed, and/or authorized installation or service personnel, as defined in Section
1.7 of this manual, should perform all installation and service on Frymaster equipment.
Conversion of this appliance from one type of gas to another should only be performed by
qualified, licensed, and/or authorized installation or service personnel as defined in Section 1.7
of this manual.
Failure to use qualified, licensed, and/or authorized installation or service personnel (as defined in Section 1.7 of this manual) to install, convert to another gas type or otherwise service
this equipment will void the Frymaster warranty and may result in damage to the equipment
or injury to personnel.
Where conflicts exist between instructions and information in this manual and local or national codes or regulations, installation and operation shall comply with the codes or regulations in force in the country in which the equipment is installed.
DANGER
Building codes prohibit a fryer with its open tank of hot oil being installed beside an
open flame of any type, including those of broilers and ranges.
Upon arrival, inspect the fryer carefully for visible or concealed damage. (See Shipping Damage
Claim Procedure in Chapter 1.)
DANGER
Frymaster appliances equipped with legs are for stationary installations. Appliances
fitted with legs must be lifted during movement to avoid damage to the appliance
and bodily injury. For movable installations, optional equipment casters must be
used. Questions? Call 1-800-551-8633.
CLEARANCE AND VENTILATION
The fryer(s) must be installed with a 6” (150 mm) clearance at both sides and back when installed
adjacent to combustible construction; no clearance is required when installed adjacent to
noncombustible construction. A minimum of 24” (600 mm) clearance should be provided at the
front of the fryer.
DANGER
No structural material on the fryer should be altered or removed to accommodate
placement of the fryer under a hood. Questions? Call the Frymaster Dean Service
Hotline at 1-800-551-8633.
2-1
One of the most important considerations of efficient fryer operation is ventilation. Make sure the
fryer is installed so that products of combustion are removed efficiently, and that the kitchen
ventilation system does not produce drafts that interfere with burner operation.
The fryer flue opening must not be placed close to the intake of the exhaust fan, and the fryer must
never have its flue extended in a “chimney” fashion. An extended flue will change the combustion
characteristics of the fryer, causing longer recovery time. It also frequently causes delayed ignition.
To provide the airflow necessary for good combustion and burner operation, the areas surrounding
the fryer front, sides, and rear must be kept clear and unobstructed.
DANGER
This appliance must be installed with sufficient ventilation to prevent the occurrence
of unacceptable concentrations of substances harmful to the health of personnel in
the room in which it is installed.
Fryers must be installed in an area with an adequate air supply and adequate ventilation. Adequate
distances must be maintained from the flue outlet of the fryer to the lower edge of the ventilation
filter bank. Filters should be installed at an angle of 45º. Place a drip tray beneath the lowest edge
of the filter. For U.S. installation, NFPA standard No. 96 states, “A minimum distance of 18 in.
(450 mm) should be maintained between the flue outlet and the lower edge of the grease filter.”
Frymaster recommends that the minimum distance be 24 in. (600 mm) from the flue outlet to the
bottom edge of the filter when the appliance consumes more than 120,000 BTU per hour.
For installations in the United States, information on construction and installation of ventilating
hoods can be found in the NFPA standard cited above. A copy of the standard may be obtained
from the National Fire Protection Association, Battery March Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
NATIONAL CODE REQUIREMENTS
The type of gas for which the fryer is equipped is stamped on the data plate attached to the inside of
the fryer door. Connect a fryer stamped “NAT” only to natural gas, those stamped “PRO” only to
propane gas, and those stamped “MFG” only to manufactured gas.
Installation shall be made with a gas connector that complies with national and local codes, and,
where applicable, CE codes. Quick-disconnect devices, if used, shall likewise comply with national,
local, and, if applicable, CE codes.
ELECTRICAL GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS
All electrically operated appliances must be grounded in accordance with all applicable national and
local codes, and, where applicable, CE codes. All units (cord connected or permanently connected)
should be connected to a grounded power supply system. A wiring diagram is located on the inside
of the fryer door. Refer to the rating plate on the inside of the fryer door for proper voltages.
DANGER
This appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for your protection
against electrical shock, and must be plugged directly into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle. Do not cut, remove, or otherwise bypass the grounding
prong on this plug!
2-2
DANGER
This appliance requires electrical power for operation. Place the gas control valve in
the OFF position in case of a prolonged power outage. Do not attempt to operate
this appliance during a power outage.
AUSTRALIAN REQUIREMENTS
To be installed in accordance with AS 5601 / AG 601, local authority, gas, electricity, and any other
relevant statutory regulations.
FCC COMPLIANCE
The user is cautioned that any changes or modifications to Frymaster computers not expressly
approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.
Frymaster computers have been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. While these devices are verified as Class A devices,
they have been shown to meet the Class B limits. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. Operation of the equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
The user may find the booklet “How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems”
helpful. It is prepared by the Federal Communications Commission and is available from the U.S.
Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402, Stock No. 004-000-00345-4.
If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced radio and television technician for
additional suggestions.
2.2
Caster/Leg Installation
Depending upon the specific configuration ordered, your fryer may have been shipped without
installed casters or legs. DO NOT INSTALL THIS APPLIANCE WITHOUT CASTERS OR
LEGS. If the appliance requires the installation of casters or legs, install them in accordance
with the instructions included in your accessory package.
2.3
Pre-Connection Preparations
DANGER
DO NOT connect this appliance to the gas supply before completing each step in
this section.
After the fryer has been positioned under the exhaust hood, ensure the following has been
accomplished:
1. Adequate means must be provided to limit the movement of fryers without depending upon the
gas line connections. If a flexible gas hose is used, a restraining cable must be connected at all
times when the fryer is in use. The restraining cable and installation instructions are packed with
the flexible hose in the accessories box that was shipped with your unit.
2-3
2. Single unit fryers must be stabilized by installing restraining chains on fryers equipped with
casters or anchor straps on fryers equipped with legs. Follow the instructions in the accessory
pack to install the chains or straps.
DANGER
Do not attach an apron drainboard to a single fryer. The fryer may become unstable,
tip over, and cause injury. The appliance area must be kept free and clear of
combustible material at all times.
3. Level fryers equipped with legs by screwing out the legs approximately 1 inch then adjusting
them so that the fryer is level and at the proper height in the exhaust hood. Frymaster
recommends that the minimum distance from the flue outlet to the bottom edge of the hood be 24
in. (600 mm) when the appliance consumes more than 120,000 BTU per hour. NOTE: There
are no built-in leveling devices on fryers equipped with casters. The floor where the fryer is to
be installed must be level.
4. Test the fryer electrical system:
a. Plug the fryer electrical cord(s) into a grounded electrical receptacle.
b. Place the power switch in the ON position.
•
•
For fryers equipped with solid-state (analog) controls, verify that the power and heat
lights are lit.
For fryers having computer or digital displays, verify that the display indicates CYCL.
c. Place the fryer power switch in the OFF position. Verify that the power and heat lights are
out, or that the display is blank.
5. Refer to the data plate on the inside of the fryer door to determine if the fryer burner is
configured for the proper type of gas before connecting the fryer quick-disconnect device or
piping from the gas supply line.

Connection to Gas Line
DANGER
Before connecting new pipe to this appliance, the pipe must be blown out thoroughly to remove all foreign material. Foreign material in the burner and gas controls will cause improper and dangerous operation.
DANGER
When pressure-testing incoming gas supply lines, disconnect the fryer from the gas
line if the test pressure will be ½ PSIG (3.45 kPa, 13.84 inches W.C.) or greater to
avoid damage to the fryer’s gas tubes and gas valve(s).
DANGER
All connections must be sealed with a joint compound suitable for the gas being
used and all connections must be tested with a solution of soapy water before lighting any pilots.
Never use matches, candles, or any other ignition source to check for leaks. If gas
odors are detected, shut off the gas supply to the appliance at the main shut-off
valve and immediately contact the local gas company or an authorized service
agency for service.
DANGER
“Dry-firing” your unit will cause damage to the frypot and can cause a fire. Always
ensure that melted shortening, cooking oil, or water is in the frypot before firing the
unit.
The size of the gas line used for installation is very important. If the line is too small, the gas
pressure at the burner manifold will be low. This may cause slow recovery and delayed ignition.
The incoming gas supply line should be a minimum of 1½” (38 mm) in diameter. Refer to the chart
on the following page for the minimum sizes of connection piping.

1. Connect the quick-disconnect hose to the fryer quick-disconnect fitting under the front of the
fryer and to the building gas line.
NOTE: Some fryers are configured for a rigid connection to the gas supply line. These units
are connected to the gas supply line at the rear of the unit.
When using thread compound, use very small amounts on male threads only. Use a pipe thread
compound that is not affected by the chemical action of LP gases (Loctite™ PST56765 Sealant
is one such compound). DO NOT apply compound to the first two threads. Doing so may allow
some of the compound to enter the gas stream, resulting in clogging of burner orifices and/or the
control valve.
2. Open the gas supply to the fryer and check all piping, fittings, and gas connections for leaks. A
soap solution should be used for this purpose.
3. Close the fryer drain valve and fill the frypot with water and boil-out solution to the bottom
OIL LEVEL line at the rear of the frypot. Light the fryer and perform the boil-out procedures
that are described in the “Lighting Instructions” and “Boiling Out the Frypot” topics found in
Chapter 3 of this manual.
DANGER
“Dry-firing” your unit will cause damage to the frypot and can cause a fire. Always
ensure that melted shortening, cooking oil, or water is in the frypot before firing your
unit.

Converting to Another Gas Type
DANGER
This appliance was configured at the factory for a specific type of gas. Converting
from one type of gas to another requires the installation of specific gas-conversion
components.
Switching to a different type of gas without installing the proper conversion
components may result in fire or explosion. NEVER ATTACH THIS APPLIANCE TO A
GAS SUPPLY FOR WHICH IT IS NOT CONFIGURED!
Conversion of this appliance from one type of gas to another should only be
performed by qualified, licensed, and authorized installation or service personnel, as
defined in Section 1.7 of this manual.
Pro H55 Series gas fryers manufactured for Non-CE countries use different burners for each type
gas. The burners in fryers built for Propane gas have a special gray-colored coating on the burner
tiles to enable them to withstand the higher caloric value of the Propane gas. Burners designed for
use in Propane units may be used in natural gas applications, but not vice versa.

CHAPTER 4: FILTRATION INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
The on-site supervisor is responsible for ensuring that operators are made aware of
the inherent hazards of operating a hot oil filtering system, particularly the aspects
of oil filtration, draining and cleaning procedures.
4.1
Draining and Manual Filtering
DANGER
Draining and filtering of cooking oil must be accomplished with care to avoid the
possibility of a serious burn caused by careless handling. The oil to be filtered is at
or near 350°F (177°C). Ensure all hoses are connected properly and drain handles
are in their proper position before operating any switches or valves. Wear all
appropriate safety equipment when draining and filtering cooking oil.
DANGER
Allow oil to cool to 100°F (38°C) before draining into an appropriate container for
disposal.
DANGER
Do not drain more than one frypot at a time into the built-in filtration unit to avoid
overflow and spillage of hot oil.
DANGER
When draining oil into a disposal unit or portable filter unit, do not fill above the
maximum fill line located on the container.
If your fryer is not equipped with a built-in filtration system, the cooking oil must be drained into
another suitable container. (For safe, convenient draining and disposal of used cooking oil,
Frymaster recommends using the Frymaster Shortening Disposal Unit (SDU). The SDU is available
through your local distributor.)
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 sealable cover under the drainpipe. The metal container must
be able to withstand the heat of the cooking oil and hold hot liquids. If you intend to reuse the
oil, 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 (poker-like tool) to clear the blockage.
4-1
DANGER
NEVER attempt to clear a clogged drain valve from the front of the valve! Hot oil will
rush out creating the potential for severe burns.
DO NOT hammer on the drain valve with the cleanout rod or other objects. Damage
to the ball inside will result in leaks and will void the Frymaster warranty.
4. After draining the oil, clean all food particles and residual oil from the frypot. BE CAREFUL,
this material may still cause severe burns if it comes in contact with bare skin.
5. Close the drain valve securely and fill the frypot with clean, filtered or fresh cooking oil or solid
shortening to the bottom OIL-LEVEL line.
DANGER
When using solid shortening, pack the shortening down into the bottom of the
frypot. DO NOT operate the fryer with a solid block of shortening sitting in the upper
portion of the frypot. This will cause damage to the frypot and may cause a flash
fire.
4.2
Preparing the Built-In Filtration System for Use
The FootPrint Pro filtration system allows the oil in one frypot to be safely and efficiently filtered
while the other frypots in a battery remain in operation. The FootPrint Pro filtration system is
available in three different configurations:
•
•
•
Filter Paper – includes crumb tray, large hold-down ring, and metal filter screen.
Filter Pad – includes crumb tray, small hold-down ring, and metal filter screen.
Magnasol Filter – includes crumb tray and Magnasol filter assembly.
Section 4.2.1 covers preparation of the Filter Paper and Filter Pad configurations for use. Refer to
Section 4.2.2 for instructions on preparing the Magnasol Filter configuration for use. Operation of
all three configurations is the same and is covered in section 4.3. Disassembly and reassembly of the
Magnasol filter is covered in section 4.4.

all the way to the back of the cabinet.
4.2.2
Preparation for Use with the Magnasol Filter Assembly
1. Pull the filter pan out from the cabinet
and remove the crumb tray and
Magnasol filter assembly. (See Figure
5)
The filter pan is equipped with rollers in
rails, much like a kitchen drawer. The
pan may be removed for cleaning or to
gain access to interior components by
lifting the front of the pan to disengage
the front rollers, then pulling it forward
until the rear rollers clear the rails. The
pan cover must not be removed except
for cleaning, interior access, or to allow
a shortening disposal unit (SDU) to be

Magnasol XL filter powder evenly over the screen.
5. Replace the crumb tray, then push the filter pan back into the fryer, positioning it all the way to
the back of the cabinet.
4.3
Operation of the Filter
DANGER
Draining and filtering of cooking oil must be accomplished with care to avoid the
possibility of a serious burn caused by careless handling. The oil to be filtered is at
or near 350°F (177°C). Ensure drain handles are in their proper position before
operating any switches or valves. Wear all appropriate safety equipment when
draining and filtering cooking oil.
DANGER
NEVER attempt to drain cooking oil from the fryer with the burners lit! Doing so will
cause irreparable damage to the frypot and may cause a flash fire. Doing so will also
void the Frymaster warranty.
1. Turn the fryer power OFF. Drain the
frypot into the filter pan by rotating the
valves counter clockwise to the right. If
necessary, use the Fryer's Friend cleanout rod to clear the drain from inside the
frypot.
Open drain valves
by rotating 90°.
DANGER
Do not drain more than one frypot at a time into the built-in filtration unit to avoid
overflow and spillage of hot oil.
DANGER
NEVER attempt to clear a clogged drain valve from the front of the valve! Hot oil will
rush out creating the potential for severe burns.
DO NOT hammer on the drain valve with the cleanout rod or other objects. Damage
to the ball inside will result in leaks and will void the Frymaster warranty.
4-5
Install the Power
Shower in the frypot
to be filtered.
2. If an optional Power Shower is included,
install it now. NOTE: Verify that the
Power Shower O-ring and gasket are
present and in good condition and that
the clean-out screws are installed at each
corner.
Snap the optional Power Shower into position.
DANGER
If the fryer includes a Power Shower, DO NOT operate the filter without the Power
Shower in place. Hot oil will spray out of the fryer and cause injury.
3. After the cooking oil has drained from
the frypot, pull the filter handle forward
(outward) to start the pump and begin
the filtering process. There may be a
slight delay before the pump activates.
Pull filter handle forward
to activate pump.
4. The filter pump draws the cooking oil through the filter medium and circulates it back up to and
through the frypot during a 5-minute process called polishing. Polishing cleans the oil by
trapping solid particles in the filter medium.
5. After the oil is filtered (about 5 minutes), close the drain valve and allow the fryer to refill. Let
the filter pump run 10 to 12 seconds after the oil begins to bubble (or sputter from the Power
Shower openings, if installed). Turn the filter off, remove the Power Shower if installed, and let
it drain.
4-6
WARNING
The filter pump is equipped with a manual reset switch in case the filter motor
overheats or an electrical fault occurs. If this switch trips, turn off power to the filter
system and allow the pump motor to cool 20 minutes before attempting to reset the
switch (see photo below).
Filter Pump Reset Switch
6. Ensure the drain valve is fully closed. (If the drain valve is not fully closed, the fryer will not
operate.) Turn the fryer ON and allow the cooking oil to reach setpoint.
DANGER
The crumb tray in fryers equipped with a filter system must be emptied into a
fireproof container at the end of frying operations each day. Some food particles can
spontaneously combust if left soaking in certain shortening material.
WARNING
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 tight fit and should only be removed for cleaning.
4-7
4.4
Disassembly and Reassembly of the Magnasol Filter
Dissassembly
1. Grasp the frame with your thumbs on the handles at the corner of the assembly and pull outward
in opposite directions to separate the frame at the corner. Continue to open the frame (it will

Handle
4.5
Draining and Disposing of Waste Oil
When your cooking oil has reached the end of its usable life, drain the oil into an appropriate
container for transport to the disposal container. Frymaster recommends the use of the Frymaster
Shortening Disposal Unit (SDU). NOTE: If using an SDU built before January 2004 the filter pan
cover must be removed to allow the unit to be positioned beneath the drain. To remove the lid, lift up
on the front edge and pull it straight out of the cabinet. Refer to the documentation furnished with
your disposal unit for specific operating instructions. If a shortening disposal unit is not available,
allow the oil to cool to 100°F (38°C), then drain the oil into a metal stockpot or similar metal
container. When draining is finished, close the fryer drain valve securely.
DANGER
Allow oil to cool to 100°F (38°C) before draining into an appropriate container for
disposal.
When draining oil into a disposal unit, do not fill above the maximum fill line located
on the container.
4-9
4.6
Using the Optional Rear-Discharge Oil Disposal
1. Ensure the filter pan is clean and ready for filtering. DO
NOT discharge oil through a dirty or incomplete filter
pan.
2. Ensure the oil is at operating temperature.
3. Turn the fryer off. Wear protective clothing and use
caution. Hot oil can cause serious injury.
4. Open the drain valve of the frypot with oil to be
discarded. Drain only one frypot at a time.
5. With the frypot drained and the oil to be discarded in the
filter pan, close the drain valve. Ensure all other drain
valves and oil-return valves are closed.
6. Ensure the oil disposal reservoir is not full and the fryer
is properly connected to the oil disposal system.
7. Discharge the oil by pressing down on the discharge
valve handle. The filter pump will come on and the oil
will be pumped from the filter pan. Turn the pump off
by lifting the discharge handle to the off position when
the filter pan empties. Repeat steps 1-7 if necessary to
discharge the oil from other frypots. DO NOT discharge
water or other liquids through the filter system.
8. Refill the fryer with fresh oil.
The oil discharge valve handle is
shown in the OFF position. Push it
down to discharge oil from the filter
pan.

CHAPTER 5: PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
5.1
Fryer Preventive Maintenance Checks and Service
DAILY CHECKS AND SERVICE
Inspect Fryer and Accessories for Damage
Look for loose or frayed wires and cords, leaks, foreign material in frypot or inside cabinet, and any
other indications that the fryer and accessories are not ready and safe for operation.
Clean Fryer Cabinet Inside and Out
Clean inside the fryer cabinet with dry, clean cloth. Wipe all accessible metal surfaces and components to remove accumulations of oil or shortening and dust.
Clean the outside of the fryer cabinet with a clean, damp cloth soaked with dishwashing detergent,
removing oil, dust, and lint from the fryer cabinet.
DANGER
Never attempt to clean fryer during the cooking process or when the frypot is filled
with hot oil. If water comes in contact with oil heated to cooking temperature, it can
cause the oil to splatter and severely burn nearby personnel.
WEEKLY CHECKS AND SERVICE
Drain and Clean Frypot
During normal usage of your fryer, a deposit of carbonized cooking oil will gradually form on the
inside of the frypot. This deposit must be periodically removed to maintain your fryer’s efficiency.
DANGER
Allow oil to cool to 100ºF (38ºC) or lower before draining to an appropriate container
for disposal.
1. Drain the frypot in accordance with Section 4.1 (page 4-1), but do not refill with cooking oil.
2. After draining the frypot, clean all food particles and residual oil from the frypot and filter pan
(if so equipped). BE CAREFUL, this material may still cause severe burns if it comes in contact
with bare skin.
3. Close the drain valve securely and fill the frypot with a solution of automatic dishwasher
detergent and water (or commercially available boil-out solution) to the bottom OIL-LEVEL
line.
5-1
4. Set the thermostat to 195ºF (91ºC) or program the computer for Boil-Out (see separate Frymaster Fryer Controllers User’s Manual) and simmer the solution for 1 hour.
WARNING
Never leave the fryer unattended during this process. If the solution overflows,
press the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position immediately.
5. After the solution has simmered for 1 hour, press the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position and
allow the solution to cool.
6. Drain the solution into a suitable container (NOT the built-in filtration system filter pan or
the Shortening Disposal Unit) and thoroughly wipe the frypot with a clean towel.

(NOT the built-in filtration system filter pan or the Shortening Disposal Unit). Repeat the
rinse process again, and then wipe frypot with a clean, dry towel.
DANGER
Ensure that the frypot is completely free of water before filling with cooking oil or
shortening. When the oil or shortening is heated to cooking temperature, water in
the frypot will cause splattering.
Clean Filter Pan, Detachable Parts and Accessories
As with the frypot, a deposit of carbonized oil will accumulate on the filter pan and detachable parts
and accessories such as baskets, sediment trays, or fish plates.
Wipe the filter pan and all detachable parts and accessories with a clean cloth dampened with a
detergent solution (or the parts can be run through a dishwasher). Rinse and thoroughly dry each
part. DO NOT use steel wool or abrasive pads to clean these parts. The scratches that result from
such scrubbing make subsequent cleanings more difficult.
WARNING
Use a commercial-grade cleaner formulated to effectively clean and sanitize
food-contact surfaces. Read the directions for use and precautionary statements before use. Particular attention must be paid to the concentration of cleaner and the
length of time the cleaner remains on the food-contact surfaces.

MONTHLY CHECKS AND SERVICE
Check Calibration of Analog Controller Thermostat Control Knob
(This check applies only to units equipped with Analog Controllers)
1. Insert a good-grade thermometer or pyrometer probe into the oil, with the end touching the fryer
temperature-sensing probe and set the thermostat knob to frying temperature.
2. After the set temperature is reached, let the burner cycle on and off automatically three times to
allow the cooking oil temperature to become uniform. If necessary, stir to get all shortening in
the bottom of the frypot melted.
3. When the burner starts for the fourth time, the thermometer/pyrometer reading should be within
± 5ºF (2ºC) of the thermostat knob setting. If it is not, calibrate as follows:
a. Loosen setscrew in thermostat control knob until the knob will rotate freely on its shaft.
b. Rotate the knob until the index line on the knob is aligned with the marking that corresponds
to the thermometer or pyrometer reading.
c. Hold the knob and carefully tighten the setscrew.
d. Recheck the thermometer/pyrometer reading against the thermostat knob setting the next
time the burner lights.
e. Repeat steps 3.a. through 3.d. until the thermometer/pyrometer reading and knob setting
agree within ± 5ºF (2ºC). If calibration cannot be obtained for any reason, call a Factory
Authorized Service Center for assistance.
5. Remove the thermometer or pyrometer.
Check Computer Magic III.5 Set Point Accuracy
(This check applies only to units equipped with Computer Magic III.5 Controllers.)
1. Insert a good-grade thermometer or pyrometer probe into the oil, with the end touching the fryer
temperature-sensing probe.
2. When the computer display shows a series of four dashes “----” with no dot between the first and
second dashes (indicating that the frypot contents are within the cooking range), press the
switch once to display the temperature of the cooking oil as sensed by the temperature probe.
3. Press the
switch twice to display the set point.
4. Note the temperature on the thermometer or pyrometer. All three readings should be within
± 5ºF (2ºC) of each other. If not, contact a Factory Authorized Service Center for assistance.

Built-in Filtration System Preventive Maintenance Checks and Service
WARNING
Never operate the filter system without cooking oil or shortening in the system.
WARNING
Never use the filter pan to transport old oil to the disposal area.
WARNING
Never drain water into the filter pan. Water will damage the filter pump.
There are no periodic preventive maintenance checks and services required for your FootPrint Pro
Filtration System other than daily cleaning of the filter pan with a solution of hot water and
detergent.
If you notice that the system is pumping slowly or not at all, verify that the filter pan screen is on the
bottom of the filter pan, with the paper on top of the screen. (If the unit is equipped with a Magnasol
filter screen rather than with the standard screen and paper system, verify that the O-ring on the
bottom fitting of the screen in present and in good condition.) Verify that the two O-ring(s) on the
fitting at the right front of the filter pan are present and in good condition.
5-6
O-RING
GASKET
CLEAN-OUT PLUGS
If the system is equipped with a Power Shower, drain the Power Shower completely after each use.
If oil is leaking at the point where the Power Shower plugs into the frypot, verify that the O-ring and
gasket on the connection fitting are present and in good condition. If you suspect blockage, unscrew
the clean-out plugs at each corner of the frame. Place the frame in a pan of hot water for several
minutes to melt any accumulation of solidified oil/shortening. Use a long, narrow bottlebrush with
hot water and detergent to clean inside the tubes. If necessary, insert a straightened paper clip or
similarly sized wire into the holes in the frame to remove any solidified shortening or other
blockages. Rinse with hot water, dry thoroughly, and reinstall the plugs before using.
DANGER
Failure to reinstall the clean-out plugs in the Power Shower will cause hot oil to
spray out of the frypot during the filtering process, creating an extreme burn hazard
to personnel.
5.3

•
Check filtration system integrity as follows:
− Verify that filter pan cover is present and properly installed.
−
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 if applicable) 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 microswitches. No air bubbles should be visible in any frypot (or no
gurgling should be heard from the Power Shower ports if applicable).
− 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 to return to the frypot (indicated by bubbles in the
cooking oil 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.

CHAPTER 6: OPERATOR TROUBLESHOOTING
6.1
Introduction
This chapter provides an easy reference guide to some of the common problems that may occur
during the operation of your equipment. The troubleshooting guides that follow are intended to help
you correct, or at least accurately diagnose, problems with your 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.
When troubleshooting a problem, always use a process of elimination starting with the simplest
solution and working through to the most complex. Most importantly, always try to establish a clear
idea of why a problem has occurred. Part of your 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 while you’re at it. 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.
Some of the troubleshooting actions that are recommended in this chapter involve removing suspect
components and substituting components that are known to be good. Whenever this in indicated,
refer to Sections 6.6 for specific instructions
If you are in doubt as to the proper action to take, do not hesitate to call the Frymaster Technical
Service Department or your local Frymaster Factory Authorized Service Center for assistance.
Before calling a servicer or the Frymaster HOTLINE (1-800-551-8633):

•
•
Verify that electrical cords are plugged in and that circuit breakers are on.
Verify that gas line quick-disconnects are properly connected.
Verify that any gas line cutoff valves are open.
Verify that frypot drain valves are fully closed.
DANGER
Hot cooking oil will cause severe burns. Never attempt to move this appliance when
filled with hot cooking oil or to transfer hot cooking oil from one container to another.
DANGER
This equipment should be unplugged when servicing, except when electrical circuit
tests are required. Use extreme care when performing such tests.
