DANGER  
Improper installation, adjustment, maintenance or service, and unauthorized alterations or  
modifications can cause property damage, injury, or death. Read the installation, operating  
and service instructions thoroughly before installing or servicing this equipment. See Chapter  
1 of this manual for definition of qualified service personnel.  
DANGER  
The front ledge of the fryer is not a step. Do not stand on the fryer. Serious injury can result  
from slips or contact with the hot oil.  
DANGER  
Single fryers equipped with legs must be stabilized by installing anchor straps. All fryers  
equipped with casters must be stabilized by installing restraining chains  
DANGER  
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any  
other appliance.  
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. Additional information can be obtained  
in the filtration manual included with the system.  
WARNING  
No structural material on the fryer should be altered or removed to accommodate placement of  
the fryer under a hood. Questions? Call the Frymaster Dean Service Hotline at 1-800-551-  
8633.  
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 frypot. 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.  
DANGER  
Adequate means must be provided to limit the movement of this appliance without depending  
on or transmitting stress to the electrical conduit. A restraint kit is provided with the fryer. If  
the restraint kit is missing contact your local Frymaster Factory Authorized Service Center  
(FASC) for part number 826-0900.  
DANGER  
This fryer may have two power cords and prior to movement, testing, maintenance and any  
repair on your Frymaster fryer; disconnect BOTH electrical power cords from the electrical  
power supply.

installed beside an open flame of any type,  
whether a broiler or the open burner of a  
range.

c. STANDARDS: All electrical cooking  
appliances must be electrically  
connected and grounded in accordance  
with local codes, or in the absence of  
local codes, with the latest editions of  
the European Community (CE)  
standards.  
Concealed loss or damage: If damage  
is unnoticed until equipment is  
unpacked, notify freight company or  
carrier immediately, and file  
a
concealed damage claim. This should  
be done within fifteen (15) days of  
date of delivery. Be sure to retain  
container for inspection.  
2.4 AIR SUPPLY & VENTILATION:  
NOTE: Dean does not assume responsibility  
for damage or loss incurred in transit.  
a. The area around the fryer must be kept  
clear to prevent any obstruction to  
ventilation air flow as well as for  
service and maintenance. Never use  
the interior of the fryer’s cabinet for  
storage.  
b. A commercial, heavy-duty fryer  
should be vented to the outside of the  
building.  
c. Filters and drip troughs should be part  
of any industrial hood, but consult  
local codes before constructing and  
installing any hood.  
2.5 RECEIVING AND UNPACKING:  
Check that the container is upright.  
Unpack the fryer carefully and remove all  
accessories from the carton. Do not  
discard or misplace these, as they will be  
needed.  
After unpacking, immediately check the  
equipment for visible signs of shipping  
damage. If such damage has occurred,  
contact the carrier and file the appropriate  
freight claims. Do not contact the factory,  
as the responsibility of shipping damage is  
between the carrier and the dealer or end-  
user.  
If your equipment arrives damaged:  
File claim for damages immediately,  
regardless of extent of damage.  
Visible loss or damage: Be sure this is  
noted on the freight bill or express  
receipt and is signed by the person  
making the delivery.

3. INSTALLATION  
3. If the optional rigid casters are to be  
installed on single fryers, the casters must  
be installed on the fryer rear channel  
assembly only.  
3.1 POSITIONING:  
a. Initial Installation: If installed with  
legs, do not push against any unit edges  
to adjust its position. Use a pallet or lift  
jack to lift it slightly and place it where  
it is to be installed.  
4. Proceed to Step 3.3, Leveling, after legs  
and/or optional rear rigid casters are  
installed to ensure the fryer is level  
before using.  
b. Relocating The Fryer: If relocating a  
fryer installed with legs, remove all  
weight from each leg before moving.  
b. Leg Installation:  
1. Remove unit from pallet.  
Note: If a leg becomes damaged during  
movement, contact your service agent  
for immediate repair/replacement of that  
leg.  
2. Carefully raise unit with forklift, pallet  
jack, or other steady means.  
3. Place one lock washer on each hex head  
screw.  
4. Insert hex head screws with lockwashers  
(1/4-20 threads by 19mm (¾") long)  
through bolt holes of leg mounting plates  
as shown in the Figure 3-1 on the next  
page. A locknut has been attached to the  
top side of the mounting plate at the  
factory to capture the hex head screw as  
it is screwed in.  
DANGER!  
THIS FRYER MAY TIP AND  
CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY IF  
NOT SECURED CORRECTLY IN  
A
STATIONARY  
POSITION.  
REMOVE ALL SHORTENING  
BEFORE MOVING FRYER AS IT  
MAY CAUSE SEVERE BURNS  
UPON CONTACT.  
5. Tighten the bolts and nuts to 5.65 joules  
(50 inch-lbs.) minimum torque.  
CAUTION  
3.2 LEG AND CASTER INSTALLATION:  
For leg and caster installations, the unit  
must be at room temperature and drained of  
shortening before installing the legs and/or  
casters.  
a. General:  
1. Install legs and and optional rear  
rigid casters near where the fryer is  
to be used, as neither are secure for  
long transit. Unit cannot be curb  
mounted and must be equipped with  
the legs (or legs and optional rigid  
casters) provided.  
c. Installing Optional Rear Rigid Casters:  
1. Install rear rigid casters only at the rear  
of the single fryer as shown in the Figure  
3-1. Legs must be installed at the front  
of the fryer.  
2. When positioning the fryer, gently  
lower the fryer into position to  
prevent undue strain to the legs and  
internal mounting hardware. Use a  
pallet or lift jack to lift and position  
the fryer if possible. Tilting the  
fryer may damage the legs.  
2. Follow the same instructions for leg  
installations as given above in steps  
3.2.b.1-5.

d. Installing Optional Swivel Casters:  
3.3 LEVELING:  
1. Swivel casters can only be used with  
multiple fryer batteries (two or more  
fryers battered together).  
a. Place a carpenter’s spirit level across  
the top of the fryer and level the unit  
both front-to-back and side-to-side. If  
the fryer is not level, the unit may not  
function efficiently, the oil may not  
drain properly for filtering and in a  
line-up it may not match adjacent  
units.  
2. Install non-locking casters only at the rear  
of the unit as shown in the Figure 3-1.  
3. Locking casters must be installed at the  
front of the unit. This allows the fryer  
to be "locked" in position for safe  
operations.  
b. Legs (Only):  
1. If the floor is smooth and level,  
level the unit by using the caster  
shims. Adjust to the high corner  
and measure with the spirit level.  
4. Follow the same instructions for leg  
installations as given above in steps  
3.2.b.1-5.  
2. Adjust leg height with an  
adjustable or 27mm (1-1/16”)  
open end wrench by turning the  
hex bullet on the bottom of the  
leg. See figure 3-2 on page 7.  
WARNING!  
A FRYER MUST BE LEVEL BEFORE  
FILLING WITH OIL. IF THE FRYER  
IS NOT LEVEL, THE FRYER MAY  
TIP OVER AND MAY CAUSE  
INJURY TO THE OPERATOR.  
3. The hex bullet is for minor leg  
height adjustment only. Do not  
adjust more than 22mm (1").
