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.
2.1.1 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.
WARNING
Do not block the area around the base or under the fryers.
2-1
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.
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.
2.1.2 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. In the absence of local codes, installation must conform to the
national Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 or the Natural Gas and Propane Installation code,
CSA B149.1, as applicable including:
1.
The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected form the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in excess of ½ psi (3.5 kPa).
2-2
2.
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than ½ psi (3.5 kPa).

2.3
Pre-Connection Preparations
DANGER
DO NOT connect this appliance to the gas supply before completing each step in
this section.
2-3
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.
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.
2. 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.
3. 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. Verify that the display indicates CYCL.
c. Place the fryer power switch in the OFF position. Verify that the display indicates OFF.

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
The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in
excess of ½ PSI (3.45 kPa, 13.84 inches W.C.) to avoid damage to the fryer’s gas
tubes and gas valve(s).
DANGER
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test pressures equal to or less than ½ PSI (3.45 kPa, 13.84 inches W.C.)
DANGER
“Dry-firing” your unit will cause damage to the frypot and can cause a fire. Always
ensure that cooking oil or water is in the frypot before firing the unit.
DANGER
All connections must be sealed with a joint compound suitable for the gas being

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. Conversion instructions are included with conversion kits.
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.
Protector® 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.

2.6
Positioning the Fryer
1. Once the fryer has been positioned at the frying station, use a carpenter’s level placed across the
top of the frypot to verify that the unit is level, both side-to-side and front-to-back.
To level fryers, adjust the casters being careful to ensure the fryer(s) are at the proper height in
the frying station.
When the fryer is leveled in its final position, install the restraints provided by the KES to limit
its movement so that it does not depend on or transmit stress to the connection. Install the restraints in accordance with the provided instructions. If the restraints are disconnected for service
or other reasons, they must be reconnected before the fryer is used.
DANGER
Hot oil can cause severe burns. Avoid contact. Under all circumstances, oil must be
removed from the fryer before attempting to move it to avoid spills, falls, and severe
burns. Fryers may tip and cause personal injury if not secured in a stationary position.
DANGER
Adequate means must be provided to limit the movement of this appliance without
depending on the connector and the quick-disconnect device or its associated piping to limit the appliance movement.
2. Close fryer drain-valve(s) and fill frypot with water to the bottom oil level line.
3. Boil out frypot(s) in accordance with the instructions in Section 4.11 on page 4-16 of this manual.

Equipment Setup and Start-Up Procedures
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.
CAUTION
If this is the first time the fryer is being used after installation, refer to Section 4.11
on page 4-16 for the boil-out procedure.
CAUTION
The cooking oil capacity of the Protector™ Series gas fryer is 32 lbs. (3.8
gallons/14.5 liters) at 70°F (21°C) for a full-vat.
Before lighting the fryer, make sure the fryer is OFF and the frypot drain valve(s)
is/are closed. Remove the basket support rack(s), if installed, and fill the frypot to
the bottom OIL-LEVEL line.
3.2.1 Setup
WARNING
Never operate this appliance with an empty frypot. The frypot must be filled with water or oil before lighting the burners. Failure to do so will damage the frypot and may
cause a fire.
DANGER
Remove all drops of water from the frypot before filling with oil. Failure to do so will
cause spattering of hot liquid when the oil is heated to cooking temperature.
WARNING
The Protector™ is not intended to use solid shortening. Use only liquid shortening
with this fryer. The use of solid shortening will clog the top off oil lines.
3-2
1. Fill the frypot with cooking 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.
2. Ensure that the power cord(s) 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.
3. Ensure that the oil level is at the top OIL LEVEL line when the oil is at its cooking temperature.

and will be damaged by the solution.
15. Add two gallons (7.6 liters) of water. Drain out the solution and clean the frypot(s) thoroughly.
16. Refill the frypot(s) with clean water. Rinse the frypot(s) twice, drain and dry with a clean towel.
Thoroughly remove all water from the frypot and elements before refilling the frypot with oil.
DANGER
Ensure that the frypot is completely free of water before filling with oil. Failure to do
so will cause splattering of hot liquid when the oil is heated to cooking temperature.
4.11.1 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

CHAPTER 5: 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.
5.1
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 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 that may cause severe burns, slipping and falling.
DANGER
When draining oil into a disposal unit or portable filter unit, do not fill above the
maximum fill line located on the container.
Oil must be drained into the filter pan, SDU or another suitable METAL container. (For safe,
convenient draining and disposal of used oil or shortening, 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.
2. Position a METAL container with a sealable cover under the drainpipe. The METAL
container must be able to withstand the heat of the oil 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 (poker-like tool) to clear the blockage.
5-1
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.
DANGER
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 to the
bottom OIL-LEVEL line.
5.2
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.

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.
3. Ensure that the filter is prepared. See Sec.
5.2.
4.
Make sure the oil is at operating
temperature.
5.
Drain the frypot into the filter pan by
rotating the drain valve handle 90º (see

system and allow the pump motor to cool 20 minutes before attempting to reset the
switch (see photo below).
Filter Pump Reset Switch
5-6
WARNING
Use caution and wear appropriate safety equipment when resetting the filter pump
reset switch. Resetting the switch must be accomplished with care to avoid the
possibility of a serious burn caused by careless maneuvering around a drain tube
and around a frypot.
10. 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.

5.5
Draining and Disposing of Waste Oil
When cooking oil is exhausted, drain the oil into an appropriate METAL 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 METAL
container for disposal.
DANGER
When draining oil into a disposal unit, do not fill above the maximum fill line located
on the container.
5.6
Using the “Optional” Oil Disposal
If the fryer is fitted with the optional oil disposal, ensure the filter
pan is clean and ready for filtering. DO NOT discharge oil through
a dirty or incomplete filter pan.
1. Ensure the oil is at operating temperature.
2. Turn the fryer off. Wear protective clothing and use caution. Hot oil can cause
serious injury.
3. Open the drain valve of the frypot with oil to be discarded. Drain only one
frypot at a time.
4. 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.
5. Ensure the oil disposal reservoir is not full and the fryer is properly connected
to the oil disposal system.
6. Discharge the oil by engaging 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
disengaging the discharge valve handle when the filter pan empties. Repeat
steps 1-6 if necessary to discharge the oil from other frypots. DO NOT
discharge water or other liquids through the filter system.
7. Refill the fryer with fresh oil.

Frymaster recommends that a Factory Authorized Service Technician inspect this appliance at
least annually as follows:
6.7.1 Fryer
•
Inspect the cabinet inside and out, front and rear for oil.
•
Verify that the flue opening is not obstructed by debris or accumulations of solidified oil.
•
Verify that burners and associated components (i.e. gas valves, pilot assemblies, ignitors, etc.)
are in good condition and functioning properly. Inspect all gas connections for leaks and verify
that all connections are properly tightened.
•
Verify that the burner manifold pressure is in accordance with that specified on the appliance’s
rating plate.
•
Verify that the temperature and high-limit probes are properly connected, tightened and
functioning properly, and that probe guards are present and properly installed.
•
Verify that component box components (i.e. computer, transformers, relays, interface boards,
etc.) are in good condition and free from oil and other debris. Inspect the component box wiring
and verify that connections are tight and that wiring is in good condition.
•
Verify that all safety features (i.e. drain safety switches, reset switches, etc.) are present and
functioning properly.
•
Verify that the frypot is in good condition and free of leaks and that the frypot insulation is in
serviceable condition.
•
Verify that wiring harnesses and connections are tight and in good condition.
6.7.2 Built-In Filtration System
•
Inspect all oil-return and drain lines for leaks and verify that all connections are tight.
•
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 are present and in good condition. Replace O-rings and seals if
worn or damaged.
•
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 oil of the associated frypot.
6-6
−
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.
− 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
oil). Return the oil return handle to the OFF position. The frypot should have refilled in no
more than 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

CHAPTER 7: OPERATOR TROUBLESHOOTING
7.1
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.
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.
Have your fryer’s model and serial numbers ready to give to the technician assisting
you.
DANGER
Hot 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.
This appliance may have more than one electrical power supply connection point.
Disconnect all power cords before servicing.
Inspection, testing, and repair of electrical components should be performed by an
authorized service agent only.
