POSITIONING THE GAS CYLINDER
Ensure that the gas cylinder is not placed in contact or underneath the Fryer. The hose should be routed away from the barbecue without touching any hot surfaces. Ensure the cylinder is placed on a firm and level surface and that the hose is neither stretched nor twisted when connected. The cylinder must also be located to give good access to connect and disconnect the regulator, or to turn off in an emergency.
a. Fill kettle before lighting.
b. Turn combination gas valve knob to “PILOT” position.
c. Depress valve knob and light pilot. With pilot burning, hold knob depressed for 60 seconds.
d. Release knob, pilot should remain lit.
e. Insert naked flame (match) to light
f. DO NOT TURN COMBINATION GAS VALVE KNOB TO THE “ON” POSITION UNTIL VESSEL IS FULL OF WATER OR SHORTENING. TURNING THE KNOB TO “ON” WITH VESSEL EMPTY WILL DAMAGE THE VESSEL OR COMPONENTS
Wait 5 minutes before attempting to relight the pilot to allow for any gas in the fryer to dissipate.
There are two shutdown modes of fryer operation, STANDBY and COMPLETE. The standby mode removes the ability for the fryer’s main burners to cycle. Complete shutdown turns off the gas supply to the fryer. Shut down the fryer by:
Turn the thermostat to OFF. Turn the gas valve clockwise to the PILOT position. The cooker is now in Standby and can remain this way for only brief periods of time. NEVER leave the cooker in standby overnight.
To completely shut down the cooker, push and turn the gas valve counterclockwise to the OFF position. The fryer is now completely shut down and can be cleaned and filtered.
