3.1 Equipment Setup and Shutdown Procedures
Setup
DANGER
Never operate the appliance with an empty frypot. The frypot must be filled to the fill line with
water or oil before energizing the elements. Failure to do so will result in irreparable damage
to the elements 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 OCF30™ with the automatic top off is NOT intended to use solid shortening. Use only
liquid shortening with this fryer. The use of solid shortening will clog the oil lines. The
cooking oil capacity of the OCF30™ Series electric fryer is 31 lbs. (3.7 gallons/14 liters) at
70°F (21°C).
DANGER
When using solid shortening, pack the shortening down into the bottom of the frypot. DO
NOT operate the fryer with a solid block of shortening sitting in the upper portion of the frypot.
This will cause damage to the frypot and may cause a flash fire.
Prior to filling frypots with oil ensure all drains are closed.
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) is/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 power is switched on. Some models are equipped with a master switch located behind the
fryer door cabinet on the front panel of the component box, next to the fuse. OFF is displayed on the
controller.
4. Ensure that the controller is switched ON. When the controller is switched on, the fryer will begin heating
and will display MLT-CYCL alternating with the temperature and setpoint until the fryer temperature
reaches 180°F (82°C). On CM 3.5 equipped fryers the display changes to LOW TEMP until within 15°F
of the setpoint. Then the display changes to product or dashed lines. On the 3000, once the fryer reaches
setpoint, the controller display changes to DROP and the fryer is ready for use. To exit the melt cycle on
the 3000, press the EXIT COOL button. Press YES to EXIT MELT?
5. Ensure that the oil level is at the top OIL LEVEL line when the oil is at its cooking temperature.
Shutdown
1. Filter the oil and clean the fryers (See Chapters 5 and 6). If using a CM3.5 reverse steps 1 and 2.
2. Turn the fryer off.
3. Place the frypot covers on the frypots.
3.2 Operation
This fryer is equipped with either 3000 or CM3.5 controllers (illustrated on the following page). Fryers with
3000 controllers should refer to the 3000 Controller Manual 819-6872 for the controller programming and
operating procedure. For CM3.5 controllers refer to the separate Frymaster Fryer Controllers User’s Manual
furnished with your fryer for the specific controller operating instructions.
3–2
3000 CONTROLLER
CM3.5
Refer to Chapter 4 of this manual for operating instructions for the built-in filtration system.
3.3 Optional Oil Attendant® Automatic Top-Off
When the Oil Attendant® top-off oil
system is in place on the fryer, oil is
continually topped off in the frypots from
a reservoir in the cabinet. The reservoir
holds a 35 pound box of oil. In a typical
operation this will last approximately two
days before changing. Components of the
system are annotated at the right (see
Figure 1).
NOTE:
The system is intended to top
off the frypots, not fill them. The frypots
will require manual filling upon startup
and after disposal.
3.3.1 Install the Oil Reservoir
Remove the original lid from the oil container and foil liner. Replace with the provided cap, which has
connected suction hardware. Ensure the feeder tube from the cap reaches to the bottom of the oil
container.
Place the oil container inside the cabinet and slide it into place (as shown on the following page).
Avoid catching the suction hardware on the cabinet interior as the container is placed in the fryer.
The system is now ready for operation. As the fryer heats to preprogrammed temperatures, the system
will energize and then slowly add oil to the frypots as needed, until the oil reaches an optimal level.
3–3
3.3.2 Routine Oil Changes
When the oil reservoir level is low, the controller displays TOPOFF OIL EMPTY in the left display
and CONFIRM in the right display. Press S (CONFIRM). Some procedures may differ from photos
shown. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for changing the JIB. If using solid shortening see Appendix B
in the rear of this manual for instructions.
1. Open the cabinet and slide the JIB
from the cabinet (see Figure 4).
2. Remove the cap and pour any remaining oil in the
container into all fry vats equally (see Figure 5).

4.2 Filtration
™
A 3000 controller prompts the user when to filter on the OCF30 fryer. After a preset number of
cook cycles the controller displays filter now? alternating with YES NO. Follow the
instructions on page 1-12 of the 3000 controller manual (819-6872). If NO is selected or a cook
cycle is started, the controller will prompt again soon to filter the oil.
On demand filtration is used to manually start a filter. See page 1-11 of the 3000 controller manual
(819-6872) for the filter menu.
The fryer MUST be at setpoint temperature for any filtration operation to start.
Note: Do NOT filter multiple vats simultaneously.
4.2.1
Operation of the Filter
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 drain handles are in their proper position before
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 elements energized!
Doing so will cause irreparable damage to the frypot and may cause a flash fire.
Doing so will also void the Frymaster warranty.
1. Ensure that the filter is prepared. See Section. 4.1.
2. Make sure the oil is at operating temperature.
3. When prompted, drain the frypot into the filter pan by rotating the drain valve handle 90º (see
Figure 7). If necessary, use the Fryer's Friend clean-out rod to clear the drain from inside the
frypot.
Figure 7
Open drain valve by rotating
90º. (Handles may differ from
photo.)
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.
4-3
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 the oil has drained from the frypot
and when prompted, rotate the filter
handle towards the “I” to start the pump
and begin the filtering process. There
may be a slight delay before the pump
activates (see Figure 8).
Rotate filter handle to
the “I” to start the
pump. (Position of
handle may differ from
Figure 8
5. The filter pump draws the oil through the filter medium and circulates it back up to and through
the frypot during a filter.
6. After the oil is filtered, close the drain valve when prompted and allow the fryer to refill. Let the
filter pump run 10 to 12 seconds after the oil begins to bubble. Turn the filter off.
7. Ensure the drain valve is fully closed. (If the drain valve is not fully closed, the fryer will not
operate.)
8. Turn the filter off when prompted.
The computer displays OFF when finished.
WARNING
The filter pump is equipped with a manual reset switch in case the filter motor
overheats or an electrical fault occurs. If this switch trips, turn off power to the filter
system and allow the pump motor to cool 20 minutes before attempting to reset the
switch (see photo below).
Filter Pump Reset Switch
4-4
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.
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.

4.4
Draining and Disposing of Waste Oil
When cooking oil is exhausted, the oil must be drained into the filter pan, SDU or other appropriate
METAL container for transport to the disposal container or if a bulk oil system is installed, use the
bulk oil disposal system by selecting DISPOSE from the filter menu if the fryer is equipped with a
3000 (see page 1-13 of the 3000 controller manual 819-6872.) and follow the prompts and
instructions for disposing oil to the bulk oil system. (For safe, convenient draining and disposal of
used oil, Frymaster recommends the use of the Frymaster Shortening Disposal Unit (SDU) for JIB
systems. The SDU is available through your local distributor.) 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
4-6
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.
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 METAL
container for disposal.

fitting at the right front of the filter pan are present and in good condition.
5.3
WEEKLY CHECKS AND SERVICE
5.3.1 Clean Frypot and Heating Elements
DANGER
Never operate the appliance with an empty frypot. The frypot must be filled to the fill
line with water or oil before energizing the elements. Failure to do so will result in
irreparable damage to the elements and may cause a fire.
5.3.2 Boiling Out the Frypot
After the fryer has been in use for a period of time, a hard film of caramelized oil will form on the
inside of the frypot. This film should be periodically removed by following the boil out procedure
that follows.
1. Before switching the fryer(s) ON, close the frypot drain valve(s), then fill the empty frypot with
a mixture of cold water and detergent. Follow instructions on detergent container when mixing.
2. For fryers equipped with 3000 controllers, program the controller for boil-out as described on
page 1-15 of the GM3000 Controller Manual. For fryers equipped with CM 3.5 controllers,
program the controller for boil-out as described in the separate Frymaster Fryer Controllers
User’s Manual.
3. Simmer the solution for 30 minutes to one hour. Do not allow the water level to drop below the
bottom oil-level line in the frypot during the boil-out operation.
DANGER
Never leave the fryer unattended during the boil-out process. If the boil-out solution
boils over, turn the fryer off immediately and let the solution cool for a few minutes
before resuming the process.

CHAPTER 6: OPERATOR TROUBLESHOOTING
6.1 Introduction
This section provides an easy reference guide to some of the common problems that may occur
during the operation of this equipment. The troubleshooting guides that follow are intended to help
correct, or at least accurately diagnose, problems with this 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. Never overlook the obvious – anyone can forget
to plug in a cord or fail to close a valve completely. Most importantly, always try to establish a clear
idea of why a problem has occurred. Part of any 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, too. 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.
Before calling a service agent or the Frymaster HOTLINE (1-800-24-FRYER):
•
Verify that electrical cords are plugged in and that circuit breakers are on.
•
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 oil or to transfer hot 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

High limit reading is out of range.
High limit temperature is past more than 410°F
(210°C), or in CE countries, 395°F (202°C)
A component has failed in the high limit circuit
such as controller, interface board, contactor or
open-high limit.

than setpoint in idle mode or 45°F (25°C) in cook
mode. (This message may appear if a product is
dropped and the start cook button is not pressed
immediately or if too large of cook loads are
dropped.)
6.2.7 HIGH-LIMIT TEST MODE
The high-limit test mode is used to test the high limit circuit. The high-limit test will destroy the oil.
It should only be performed with old oil. Shut the fryer off and call for service immediately if the
temperature reaches 460°F (238°C) without the high-limit tripping and the computer displays high
LIMIT FAILURE alternating with DISCONNECT POWER with an alert tone during testing.
The test is cancelled at any time by turning the fryer off. When the fryer is turned back on, it returns
to the operating mode and displays the product.
1. Press and hold the check (9) button until MAIN MENU is displayed followed by PRODUCT
SETUP.

The fryer continues heating until the high limit trips. Generally this happens once the temperature
reaches 423°F to 447°F (217°C to 231°C) for non-CE high limits and 405°F to 426°F (207°C to
219°C) for CE high limits.
Once the high-limit opens the computer displays HELP HI-2 alternating with the actual
temperature (ex. 430F).
10. Release the (9) button.
If the high-limit fails, the computer displays HIGH LIMIT FAILURE alternating with
DISCONNECT POWER. If this happens, disconnect power to the fryer and call for service
immediately.
The vat stops heating and the computer displays the current temperature setting alternating with the
actual temperature (ex. 430F) until the temperature cools below 400°F (204°C).
11. Press the soft power button to cancel the alarm and go to OFF.

APPENDIX C: BULK OIL INSTRUCTIONS
C.1.1
Bulk Oil Systems
Bulk oil systems have large oil storage tanks,
typically located in the rear of the restaurant,
that are connected to a rear manifold on the
fryer. Some are waste only systems, while
others are both waste and fresh oil. Waste oil
is pumped from the fryer, via the fitting
located on the bottom, to the disposal tanks
and fresh oil is pumped from the tanks, thru
the fitting located on the top, to the fryer (see
Figure 1). The 4-pin wire harness allows
connection to various bulk oil systems (see
Figure 2). Connect pins 1 and 4 to the tank
full switch to prevent overflow of the waste
tank. Connect pins 2 and 3 to the fresh oil
pump. Set the fryer to bulk through the vat
setup mode on the far left controller. See 3000
controller manual section 1.4 on page 1-3. It
is imperative that the fryer system be
completely power cycled after changing
setup from JIB to Bulk.
