Controls and Indicators
The FKF and FKF-H have a power switch to turn the pump motor on or off. It also contains a pump motor
reset switch. If the motor overheats while filtering, it will automatically shut off. To reactivate the pump
motor, wait 15 minutes to allow the motor to cool then press the switch. The FKF-H also has a heater
mounted on the pump that melts residual solid shortening within the pump. This heater has a power
switch used to turn it on or off.
