Deep Fryer Parts

Owning a small deep fryer opens up a lot of possibilities for home cooking. Over time, parts on your deep fryer can wear out or break. If your deep fryer doesn’t heat the cooking oil as hot as it should, then you may need to replace some parts.

If your deep fryer has suddenly stopped heating properly, check for a small "Reset" button on the deep fryer. If the unit gets too hot while it's being used, it might trip the overload switch to prevent damage or injury.

It's important never to touch the grease in the basket or attempt to drain the deep fryer until the grease is completely cooled down. If you need to clean or service your deep fryer, let the grease cool down until it's room temperature so that you don't risk a serious burn.

Deep fryer troubleshooting tips

If the deep fryer starts to bubble over or overflows, make sure you unplug the unit and step away to avoid any splashing grease. If the deep fryer is cooking too hot even when you have the temperature at a lower setting, then there may be an issue with the control board. In this case, don't use the deep fryer until you've had the control board looked at and replaced if necessary.

Five common parts in deep fryers

Here are a few parts that most deep fryers have. Before servicing any of these parts, make sure that the grease filter is unplugged and safely drained.

  1. Grease filter—The grease filter helps remove cooking odors and excess grease. If it's too saturated with grease, it should be cleaned or replaced with a new one.
  2. Power cord—Replace the power cord if the prongs on the male end are loose or broken or if any rubber insulation on the cord is cracked or damaged.
  3. Basket—Food sits inside the basket while it's being fried. If the basket or handle is damaged, then it should be replaced.
  4. Reset button—The reset button protects the deep fryer from overheating. If it trips repeatedly or won't reset, then you'll need to replace it.
  5. Control board—The control board powers the digital display and most of the controls on the deep fryer. If the control board doesn't light up or some of the controls and settings are non-responsive, then the control board may need to be replaced.
