INTRODUCTION
The Computer Magic III (CM III.5) ensures consistent product quality by allowing the operator to
enter specific cooking parameters for up to 12 products. These parameters remain stored in the
computer’s memory. Pressing a single button initiates a cooking cycle using the stored parameters
so that every batch is fried the same way. For fryers equipped with basket lifts, the computer also
controls lowering and raising the basket. Other features include a melt-cycle for solid shortening, a
boil-out mode for cleaning the frypot, and automatic recovery-time checks. The computer can be
programmed to display temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius, and to display the time remaining in a
cooking cycle or to constantly display the frypot temperature.
NOTE: This computer is configured for the fryer on which it is installed (i.e., gas or electric and
full- or split-pot). Although identical in appearance, computers configured for use on one type of
fryer are not directly interchangeable with those configured for use on another type.
1-1
DEFINITIONS
Product Button: One of the numbered buttons on the control panel. A setpoint and up to 12
sets of cooking parameters (one set for each product) can be programmed
into the computer. The buttons are also used to enter the values for the
setpoint and cooking parameters.
Frypot Setpoint: An operator-determined frying temperature. When the computer is turned
on, it automatically brings the cooking oil or shortening to the setpoint and
maintains it at that temperature until the computer is turned off.
Cooking Parameters: The set of cooking variables associated with a product. They are sensitivity,
cook time, shake time, and hold time.
Sensitivity: A built-in feature, which adjusts cooking time to compensate for the drop in
frypot temperature when product enters the oil. Different products vary in
density, batch size, and temperature. Food products will also vary in cook
time. A proper sensitivity setting will assure a high-quality product. Setting
0 is the least sensitive and setting 9 is the most sensitive (see the chart on
page 1-5).
Cooking Time: The operator-determined time for cooking a product.
Shake Time: The operator-determined time during the frying cycle when the product
should be shaken.
Hold Time: The operator-determined time product can be held before being served.

INTRODUCTION
The basket lift timer allows the operator to specify a frypot setpoint, assign different cooking times
for each of the left and right basket lifts, and independently control the operation of the left and right
basket lifts. The operator can also choose constant cooking time display or constant setpoint display.
The timer will not display the actual frypot setpoint.
The timer automatically selects Fahrenheit or Celsius temperature values. When entering the frypot
setpoint, values less than 191 are considered to be Celsius temperatures. Any value greater than 190
is considered to be a Fahrenheit temperature.
The operator can toggle between cook time display or setpoint display by pressing
.
The timer stores the current time and temperature settings when the unit is turned off with the
ON/OFF switches. In the event of a power failure, or if the circuit breaker is switched off, the time
and temperature settings should be rechecked for accuracy. NOTE: The ON/OFF switches DO
NOT control the AC power supply to the fryer, they only turn the controller on or off.
The timer has three error display messages:
HELP, indicating a heating problem. Turn the fryer off and call the Frymaster hotline.
HOT, indicating that the frypot temperature is above 385°F (196°C). If this display is seen, turn the
fryer off immediately.
, indicating a problem in the temperature measuring and control circuits. Turn the fryer off
and contact an authorized servicer.
NOTE: This controller is configured for the fryer on which it is installed (i.e., gas or electric and
full- or split-pot). Although identical in appearance, computers configured for use on one type of
fryer are not interchangeable with those configured for use on another type.

CANCELING THE MELT-CYLE
DANGER
Do not cancel the melt-cycle mode if using solid shortening!
The melt-cycle is designed to prevent scorching shortening and overheating the frypot or elements
while gradually melting blocks of shortening. The controller automatically starts the fryer in the
melt-cycle mode and remains in this mode until the frypot temperature reaches 180°F (82°C) or the
melt-cycle is cancelled by the operator. If you are not using solid shortening, you may cancel the
melt-cycle.
To cancel the melt-cycle on a full-pot unit, press the right melt-cycle cancel switch

DISABLING OR ENABLING THE MELT-CYCLE CANCEL SWITCH
The controller can be programmed to disable the melt-cycle cancel switch to prevent accidentally
canceling the melt-cycle.
1. With the controller in the OFF mode, press the melt-cycle cancel switch
(for a split-pot, press
the left switch for the left frypot and the right switch for the right frypot; for a full-pot, press the
right switch). The display will show either "0", meaning that the melt-cycle can be bypassed or
a "1" meaning that the melt-cycle cannot be bypassed.
2. To change the bypass configuration, press and hold the melt-cycle cancel switch for five to six
seconds to toggle the "0" to "1" or "1" to "0". Release the switch when the display shows the
desired setting.

DESCRIPTION
Power Supply Rocker (ON/OFF) Switch – Turns the controller ON or OFF.
Power On Light – Indicates the controller is ON.
Temperature Control Knob – Used to set the desired frying temperature.
Heating Mode Light – Indicates the fryer is heating.
Trouble Indicator Light – Indicates a malfunction of a fryer control circuit or an overheat
condition. Reset by turning the ON/OFF switch OFF for 30 seconds, then back to ON.
Melt Cycle Light – Indicates the unit is operating in the melt-cycle mode. The fryer will
automatically exit the melt-cycle when the frypot temperature reaches 180°F (82°C).
Melt-Cycle Switch – Turns the melt-cycle ON or OFF.
INTRODUCTION
The Solid State Controller (often referred to as an “Analog Controller”) allows the operator to adjust
the frypot temperature by means of a knob and graduated scale on the face of the controller. The
controller also includes a melt-cycle switch and a trouble indicator light.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Press the power supply rocker switch to the ON position. The Power On light and the Heating
Mode light will both illuminate.
2. Rotate the temperature control knob to the desired frying temperature.
3. If using solid shortening, press the melt-cycle switch to the ON position. The melt-cycle is
designed to prevent scorching shortening and overheating the frypot or elements while gradually
4–1
melting blocks of shortening. When in the melt-cycle mode, the fryer will cycle on and off until
the frypot temperature reaches 180°F (82°C) or the melt-cycle mode is cancelled by the operator.
DANGER
Do not cancel the melt-cycle mode if using solid shortening!
During the melt-cycle, the Heating Mode light will alternately illuminate and go out as the fryer
cycles on and off.
4. Once the frypot temperature reaches 180°F (82°C), or the melt-cycle mode is cancelled, the fryer
will automatically go into the heating mode to bring the frypot temperature to that set on the
temperature control knob and will maintain it at that temperature. When the fryer is heating, the
Heating Mode light will be illuminated. When the frypot has reached the temperature set on the
control knob, the Heating mode light will go out, indicating the unit is ready for frying.
TROUBLE INDICATOR LIGHT
On gas fryers equipped with electronic ignition, the Trouble Indicator light will illuminate if there is
an ignition failure. To reset the controller after an ignition failure, place the power supply rocker
switch in the OFF position for at least 30 seconds, and then place it back in the ON position.
For all fryers, the Trouble Indicator light will also illuminate whenever the controller senses a
problem with the probe or high-limit thermostat circuit.
CALIBRATING THE CONTROL KNOB
1. Bring the frypot to frying temperature in accordance with the procedures above.
2. Insert a thermometer or pyrometer probe into the frypot near the fryer temperature-sensing
probe.
3. Let the heating mode light cycle automatically three times to ensure the cooking oil/shortening
temperature is uniform. Stir, if necessary, to get all cooking oil/shortening in bottom of frypot
melted.
4. Whenthe heating mode light illuminates for the fourth time, the pyrometer reading should be
within 5°F (2°C) of the temperature control knob setting. If it is not, calibrate the knob as
follows:
a. Loosen the setscrew in the temperature control knob until the outer shell of the knob will
rotate on the insert inside the knob.
b. Rotate the outer shell of the knob until the index line on the knob aligns with the mark that
corresponds to thermometer or pyrometer reading.
c. Hold the knob and tighten the setscrew.
4–2
d. Recheck the thermometer or pyrometer reading and the temperature control knob setting the
next time heating mode light illuminates.
e. Repeat Steps 4-a through 4-d until the thermometer or pyrometer reading and knob setting
agree within 5°F (2°C).
f. If calibration cannot be attained, call a Factory Authorized Service Center.
4. Remove the thermometer or pyrometer probe.

INTRODUCTION
The Thermostat Controller utilizes a thermostat that is directly connected to a temperature knob
mounted on the control panel. Rotating the knob to the desired cooking temperature physically
Switch in the ON
adjusts the thermostat control to that temperature. Placing the ON/OFF
position supplies power to the fryer’s components and causes the switch to illuminate. Placing the
Melt Cycle
Switch in the ON position causes the fryer to cycle on for a few seconds and off for a
longer period. The purpose is to prevent scorching shortening, and to prevent overheating the frypot
or elements while gradually melting blocks of shortening. This switch is also illuminated when in
the ON position. The Heat Mode Indicator
illuminates when the frypot is below setpoint.
DANGER
Do not cancel the melt-cycle mode if using solid shortening!
CAUTION
The fryer will remain in the Melt Cycle mode until turned off by placing the Melt Cycle
Switch in the "OFF" position.
5-1
The Thermostat Controller requires no programming – the operator has only to set the thermostat
knob to the desired cooking temperature. However, the controller does require calibration by a
factory-authorized servicer from time to time, normally every six months.
On fryers equipped with basket lift timers, pressing the button in the center of a timer causes the
associated basket lift to lower the basket into the frypot. At the end of the prescribed cooking time,
the timer will raise the basket from the frypot. The cooking time is set by rotating the timer knob
clockwise until the index mark indicates the desired cooking time.
Although mounted on the same control panel, the basket lift timers are totally independent of the
controller.
