Setup  
WARNING  
Fill the frypot to the bottom OIL LEVEL line with vegetable oil before pressing the  
ON/OFF switch to the "ON" position. Failure to do so could damage the frypot.  
1. Fill the frypot with vegetable 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. If solid shortening is used, pack solid  
shortening into the cool-zone of the frypot. Continue to pack shortening in frypot to the bottom  
OIL LEVEL line.  
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 vegetable oil level is at the top OIL LEVEL line when the vegetable oil is at its  
programmed cooking temperature. It may be necessary to add vegetable oil to bring the level up  
to the proper mark, after the oil has reached the programmed cooking temperature. If solid  
shortening is used, the MELT cycle MUST be used to melt the shortening. It may be necessary  
to add solid shortening to bring the level up to the proper mark after the packed shortening has  
melted. DO NOT DISABLE OR CANCEL THE MELT CYCLE UNTIL ALL SOLID  
SHORTENING HAS MELTED.  
Shutdown  
1. Press the ON/OFF switch  
to the "OFF" position (the display will show "OFF").  
2. Filter vegetable oil (if applicable) and clean fryers. See Installation and Operation manual that  
came with the fryer.  
3. Place the frypot covers on frypots.

Checking Temperature  
A. Check the cooking oil/shortening temperature at any time by pressing the  
switch once.  
Check the setpoint by pressing the  
switch twice.  
B. During the idle periods, when the fryer is on but not in use, "

turned on in a split-vat computer. If not, check actual temperature and setpoint.  
C. If you suspect a defective probe, check the cooking oil/shortening temperature with a  
thermometer. Verify that the computer readout is reasonably close to your measured reading.  
NOTE: The electronic circuitry can be affected adversely by current fluctuations and electrical  
storms. If for no apparent reason the computer does not function or program properly, reset the  
computer by unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in.

will appear in the left display. The sensitivity number previously selected will be  
displayed in the right display. Enter the new desired sensitivity number, the range is 1 to 9.  
Enter "0" for no sensitivity. Press the  
switch to lock in the setting.  
Sensitivity adjusts computer-cooking time to compensate for the drop in cooking oil/shortening  
temperature when a basket of product is placed into the fryer. Sensitivity decreases or  
increases cooking time to counterbalance variances in product density, basket-load size, and  
initial temperature. A proper sensitivity setting will ensure a high quality product. For example:  
4 ounces of fries can be programmed to cook to the same quality as 2 pounds. A good initial  
setting is 4 or 5. Some experimenting with the range of 1 to 9 may be required to achieve  
optimum quality.
