P. 4
MVP GROUP CORP 1 888 275 4538
GASCONNECTION
The gas supply (service) line must be the same size or greater than the inlet line of the
appliance.
SIERRA appliances use a ¾” NPT inlet.
Pipe joint compound must be resistive to Natural or LP gas.
For equipment using propane gas do not install supply lines with a diameter less than ½
under any circumstances.
All connections must be tested with a soapy water solution before lighting any pilots.
The appliance shall be connected to the fuel gas for which it was designed. No attempt shall
be made to convert the appliance from the gas specified on the rating plate for use with a
different gas without consulting
the installation instructions, the serving gas supplier, or the
appliance manufacturer for complete instructions.
MANUALSHUTOFFVALVE
This installer supplied valve must be in the gas service line ahead of the appliance
regulator in the gas stream and in a position accessible in the event of an emergency.
PRESSUREREGULATOR
Commercial cooking equipment must have a pressure regulator on the incoming service
line for safe and efficient operation; the gas pressure regulator supplied by SIERRA
must be installed at the gas inlet of each piece of equipment.
P. 5
MVP GROUP CORP 1 888 275 4538
The regulators supplied along with SIERRA appliances, will have 3/4”inlet/outlet
openings and are adjusted at the factory for 5” WC (natural gas) or 10” WC (propane
gas) depending on customer’s ordering instructions.
Prior to connecting the regulator, check the incoming line pressure, as these regulators
can only withstand a maximum pressure of ½” PSI (14”WC). If the line pressure is
beyond this limit, a step down regulator will be required.
The arrow shown on the bottom of the regulator body shows the gas flow direction, it
should point downstream to the appliance. The BLUE air vent cap on the top is part of
the regulator and should not be removed.
Any adjustments to the regulator should be made by qualified service personnel only
with the proper equipment.
THIS APPLIANCE IS EQUIPPED FOR NATURAL GAS GAS.
This appliance is equipped with orifices sized (# 36) for operation with natural gas.
For conversion to LP (PROPANE) gas see instruction plate in the appliance. Gas
conversion must be performed by qualified or authorized personnel. Orifices (#52)
necessary for LP (PROPANE) and regulator for conversion are provided on accessory
box.

For continued performance efficiency and longevity of your Fryer it is essential to carry
out a good maintenance program.
DAILY
1. Remove and wash thoroughly all “loose” parts (basket hanger, baskets, crumb
screen, etc.).
2. Wipe clean all exterior and interior accessible surfaces and parts.
3. Filter the liquid oil/shortening at the end of the day, replace if necessary. If fryer
is under heavy use, filter more often during the day.
4. Clean all the fryer tank with a long brush (even the capillary connections)
WEEKLY
1. Shut down the fryer by turning off the gas tap dial and power supply, where
applicable.
2. Drain the fryer in a filter pan or steel container. Flush out sediments at the
bottom of the vessel with liquid oil.
3. Close the drain valve and fill the vessel with a mixture of boil-out solution and
water.
4. Relight the pilot and turn on the burners.
P. 9

soften the deposit and/or carbon spots. (Approximately 1 hour).
6. Drain off solution, scrub the insides with brush and rinse thoroughly.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure, if necessary.
8. Wipe dry with soft towels and refill with clean oil/shortening.
WARNING: All water must be removed before adding oil or shortening. Not doing so
can result in splattering of hot oil.
STAINLESSSTEELPARTS Do not use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleansers or powders to clean stainless steel
surfaces. All stainless steel parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water during
the day and a stainless steel liquid cleaner at the end of the day. To remove encrusted
materials, soak in hot water to loosen the material, and then use a wood or nylon
scraper. NOT USE a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless
steel. Scratches are almost impossible to remove.
