IMPORTANT FIRE SAFETY NOTICE
The building code in virtually all cities in North America requires that any fryer with more than a
7 pound oil capacity be operated under a vent hood with an Automatic Fire Extinguisher System. This
system is typically referred to as an “Ansul” or “Kiddie” system.
If you operate this fryer or any fryer outdoors in a concession trailer, booth, or portable concession
stand, you may fall under the building code requirements.
Consult your local fire protection agency for specific area requirements regarding commercial fryers.
Check regularly to insure safe, proper function and adherence to local code.
All Gold Medal fryers have two thermostats. One thermostat works with the heat adjustment dial to
control the working temperature of the oil. The other is a high limit shutdown thermostat that
operates if the first thermostat should fail. We use the highest quality thermostats available. However,
in time, all thermostats wear out. Keep a thermometer immersed in the oil to monitor the set
temperature and thermostat accuracy at all times.
INSTALLATION
Remove the corrugated carton from your fryer. Check the fryer thoroughly for any damage which
may have occurred in transit. Claims should be filed with the transportation company. We recommend
you retain the shipping carton and packing in case you intend to return the machine for maintenance.
• Place your fryer on a suitable bench or table. Locate your fryer in a protected place on a base or
table strong enough to support it with the weight of the oil, and sturdy enough that it cannot be
knocked off its base.
• All fryers must have sufficient line voltage for proper operation. Refer to the Electrical requirements
section of this manual to find the outlet requirement. (Located on Page 3)
• Be sure your power supply is installed properly and in accordance with local and national codes.
• This machine must be properly grounded to prevent shock in case of electrical problems.
• We recommend that you have an electrician check your wall receptacle for proper connections.
Improperly wired receptacles may cause damage to your fryer.
Important: Do not operate your fryer until it has been filled to the correct level as marked (notched) on the
inside of the tank.

CAUTIONS
Hot oil is dangerous – Severe burns can result when hot oil contacts skin.
Hot oil is flammable – Keep open flames away from oil and vapors.
Do NOT introduce excessive amounts of water to fryer.
Advance Safety Measures
Consult your local fire protection agency for your area requirements. Check regularly to insure
safe and proper function and adherence to code. Install an automatic fire extinguisher over the
fryer and exhaust duct. Use only fire extinguishers of the approved type.
Place a thermometer capable of 400° F (Or higher) in the oil above the heating element to monitor oil
temperature.
Keep Fryer Clean and Maintained
Keep your floors clean and free of grease so no one slips and contacts the fryer.
Keep filters and areas above the fryer clean. Oil soaked lint or dust can ignite easily and flames
spread quickly in such an environment.
Educate Personnel
Ensure that all personnel understand the hazards of hot oil. Instruct them on proper actions to
take if they suspect any part of the fryer is malfunctioning. Educate your personnel on proper
procedures to follow if a grease fire should occur.
If your fryer malfunctions, have it serviced by a qualified service technician.
Important: If your fryer starts to smoke or boil abnormally, cut off power supply and determine
the reason why the fryer is overheating before attempting to use it again.
Do Not use water on a grease fire! Never direct the extinguisher in a manner that would blow
grease out of the oil tank.

OPERATION
CONTROLS AND THEIR FUNCTIONS
FRONT MOUNTED OFF/ON SWITCH – Turns power on to the fryer. Disconnect by a plug on the
bottom left side of the power head.
HEAT SELECTOR SWITCH – Switches between the “Preheat” position, and “Normal Operation”
position.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL – Turns the fryer on, and controls the temperature of the cooking oil.
PREHEAT PILOT LIGHT – Indicates that the main power switch is in the “Pre heat” position, and
the element is heating at 1/3 of the rated wattage. Note: The preheat position is used for melting
solid shortening.
NORMAL OPERATION LIGHT – Indicates that the fryer is heating at full wattage.
POWER LIGHT – When “off” - indicates that the high limit thermostat has opened, the power head
is not properly seated on the tank, or front mounted “off/on” switch is set to “off”.
HIGH LIMIT CONTROL – Will shut off heat if the temperature control malfunctions. The high limit
“RESET” switch will only reset after the fryer has cooled to normal operating temperatures.
Before operating for the first time, the inside of the fryer should be rinsed and then thoroughly dried before
adding oil.
Fill your fryer with oil until it reaches the correct level as marked (notched) inside the tank.
Important Operating and Quality Control Tips:
• Don’t overheat. Don’t fry until the oil temperature exceeds 375° F.
• Don’t waste money! Use only high quality, heavy duty, frying shortening.
• Don’t fry foods in broken down fry shortening. Broken down oil is thinned, darkened.
• Don’t overload the frying tank.
• Don’t shake breaded items over fryer.
• Don’t salt items over fryer.
• Don’t introduce excessive amounts of water to fryer.
• Don’t fill the frying basket(s) more than half full.
• Don’t thaw frozen foods before frying.
