Add or remove cooking oil as needed. All cooking oil should be melted before
proceeding or remove cooking oil as needed.
4.
Allow the vat to cycle ON and OFF three (3) times.
5.
Insert the fry vat probe into the cooking oil to within one (1) inch of the fryer

7.
To check calibration, press the temperature display switch in the following manner:
9.
a.
Full-vat: Press the
button and compare the computer read out with the digital
thermometer read out.
b.
Split-vat: Repeat above steps 6 through 8a for each side.
The cooking oil temperature should be within ± 5°F (±3°C) of the computer display.
10. If the cooking oil temperature is within ±5° (±3°C), calibration is complete. Press the

HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD (HCS) – The procedure(s) in this manual
include the use of chemical products. These chemical products will be highlighted with
italic letters followed by the abbreviation (HCS). See Hazard Communication Standard
(HCS) manual for the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet(s)

Weekly
Clean Behind Fryers (All Frymaster Models).
Tools
McD All Purpose
Concentrate (A.P.C.)
(HCS), towels, nylon pot
brush, bucket, mop, putty
knife, high/low brush.
Purpose:
The purpose of cleaning behind the fryer weekly is to prevent significant grease buildup.
This also meets McDonald’s cleanliness standards. Not cleaning behind the fryers on a
weekly basis could become a fire hazard to your restaurant.
1.
Turn all fryer power switches to “OFF”.
2.
Remove stainless steel grease trough located below the grease filters by lifting it off the
holding screws and pour all the grease into the cooking oil removal cart.
3.
Gas Fryers - Shut OFF the gas supply using the manual gas shut-off valve. Then
disconnect the gas line from the fryer.
Caution: Do not use the quick-disconnect connection to shut off the gas supply to fryers
and grills. Use the manual gas shut-off valve for that piece of equipment. If the piece of
equipment does not have a manual gas shut-off, one must be installed. The manual gas
shut-off should be located on the supply line before the quick-disconnect connection for
the piece of equipment.
4.
Release locks on fryer wheels.
Caution: Cooking oil in the vats may be hot and may splash when moving fryer.

solution of McD A.P.C. (HCS) from the sink proportioner.
12. Using a putty knife, scrape off all soft grease and hard carbon from area behind the fryer
using the following sequence:
Caution: Be careful NOT to break the Fire Protection FUSIBLE LINK in lower center
area of stack. This will activate the fire extinguishing system.

the high/low brush, scrub all the areas listed in order in Step 12 including the floor.
14. Wipe all areas with towels until clean and dry.
15. Have manager inspect and approve cleaning before proceeding.
16. Using nylon pot brush and a hot solution of McD A.P.C. (HCS) from the sink proportioner in
a bucket, wash the legs and wheels. Wipe dry.

floor area around fryer.
Note: Make sure all surfaces are dry before proceeding.
Caution: Cooking oil in vat may be hot and may splash when moving fryer.
18. Carefully roll fryer back close enough to connect electrical cord(s). After plugging in cords,
roll fryer close to the filter shelf.
19. Remove the vat covers from all vats.
20. Lift front of fryer capping piece until back splash clears the filter shelf while rolling fryer
into its normal position.
21. Gas Fryers – Check both ends of gas quick-disconnect connections for grease and wipe off if
necessary.
22. Gas Fryers – Connect gas coupling.
Caution: Ensure gas coupling is fully interlocked.
23. Lock wheels in place, and install grease filters and grease troughs.

The cooking oil level should cover the temperature and high-limit probes. Add cooking oil if
necessary.
Caution: If, after completing both high-limit tests you find only the second high-limit
operates properly, the vat can be used if it is absolutely necessary, but with extreme care.
The computer must be replaced immediately after this period of necessity. If the second
high-limit does not work the vat must NOT be used until the second high-limit has been
replaced. If the first high-limit feature activates at less than 400°F (204°C), do not
replace the computer unless it interferes with proper cooking. If the second high-limit
activates at less than 425°F (218°C), do not replace it unless it prevents you from
checking the first high-limit feature.
Note: The high-limit test program allows the operator to test the trip-out temperature of
the first and second high-limits. The first high-limit feature is a function performed by
the computer and automatically resets when the cooking oil cools below its trip point of
400°F (204°C). The second high-limit automatically resets when the cooking oil has
cooled to 400°F (204°C) or less. To perform the high-limit test, the vat must be
operating normally and the display reading "HI-LIMIT" on either display for a full- or
split-vat, depending on the test being performed. Only one side of a split-vat is to be
checked at a time. The test can be performed any time the vat is turned ON except if

operates properly, the vat can be used if it is absolutely necessary, but with extreme care.
The computer must be replaced immediately after this period of necessity. If the second
high-limit does not work, the vat must not be used until the second high-limit has been
replaced. If the first high-limit feature activates at less than 410°F (204°C), do not
repair or replace the computer or controller unless it interferes with proper cooking. If
the second high-limit activates at less than 425°F (218°C), do not replace it unless it
prevents you from checking the first high-limit feature.

Tools
Flat blade screwdriver,
7/16" (13 mm) open-end
wrench, and multimeter
(that measures DC
microamps).
Scratch Calibration Check
(Gas Fryers Only) (Should be done by a qualified service person.)
Caution: Portions of fryer will be hot during this scratch calibration.
Note: Conduct this test when fryer will not be needed for about one hour.
1.
Contact the local gas company or service agency to check the gas pressure out of the
fryer's gas regulator.
Result: Gas pressure must be 3.0" W.C. (76 mm W.C.) natural gas or 8.25" W.C. (210
mm W.C.) propane gas.
Caution: If the pressure does not meet above requirements the fryer gas valve regulator
must be adjusted by the service agency to obtain the correct pressure.

Scratch Calibration Check
2.
Remove gas valve vent tube. Clean and replace. See cleaning procedure in service
manual.
3.
Clean combustion air blower. See the service manual for cleaning procedure.
4.
Conduct recovery test as outlined on this card. The recovery test procedure varies
dependent upon the controller/computer model of your fryer.
5.
If the vat does not meet the recovery specification, adjust the combustion air blower to
obtain the proper recovery time.
COMBUSTION AIR BLOWER ADJUSTMENT
Note: Use a multimeter that measures DC microamps when making burner air
adjustments.
Note: Ensure proper gas pressure is set out of the gas regulator.
6.
Connect the multimeter in series with the white flame sensor wire on the ignitor.
7.
After fryer has completed the melt cycle, allow burner to operate for at least one minute.
8.
Check for a 2.5 to 3.5 microamp reading on the multimeter. This reading should show at
least 2.5 microamps. Adjust the combustion air-blower intake plate to obtain a
maximum microamp reading on the multimeter.
Note: Air adjustment must be made if a blue flame is observed through the burner
viewing ports, or if there are dark spots on the burner face. After 90 seconds of
continuous burner operation, the burner should glow bright orange-red. (For proper
colors, see the "BURNER COLOR COMPARISON CHART" located inside the door of
the fryer). If flame color is not correct, it is necessary to adjust the combustion airblower air intake-plate.
9.
To adjust the blower intake plate, loosen the locking nut(s) on the intake plate with a small
adjustable wrench.
10. Adjust the plate opened or closed to obtain a maximum reading on the multimeter. When
observing the burner through the viewing ports, an orange-red glow should be seen on the
face of the burner. The ports are located directly above the spark ignitors.
11. When a maximum microamp reading and an orange-red glow have been obtained, tighten the
intake plate locking nut(s) while holding the plate to prevent movement.
Note: A blue flame observed through the burner viewing ports usually indicates
insufficient air. Dark spots on the burner face indicate excess air.
12. Recheck the recovery time as outlined on this card.
13. If further combustion air adjustments are needed, repeat Steps 9 through 12 until the
recovery time specification is met.
14. Repeat Steps 9 through 13 for each vat of the fryer.
15. Scratch calibration check is complete. Check remaining fryers.
