Hi there.
You may need to calibrate the new thermostat and in doing so, you will need a calibrated thermometer with sensor dipped in oil at about one (1) inch above the fryer thermostat sensing bulb.
Record the cut-off temp (when indicator light goes off) and compare it with the thermostat setting.
The thermostat has a calibration screw ( - ) recessed in the middle of the shaft, you will see the when you pull off the thermostat knob. this calibration screw can be turned by a precision screw driver, turn clockwise to decrease the cut-off temperature ; turn counterclockwise to increase the cut-off temperature.
Just make sure that the unit is preheated or have cycled at least 5 to 8 times and the oil is new before performing the calibration.
Regards.

Hi there,

Any competent service technician could cobble something like this together, but I'd challenge the insurance company, as this fryer is UL approved. Such a modification would be expensive and void the warranty and NSF and UL approveals.

Hi,
Running the fryer with no oil will over heat the coil very quickly...this caused the element to burn out...

That element will be replaceable...

If you call these guys you should be able to purchase a new element from them...

By purchasing a natural to propane conversion kit & it also might require the burner orfices to be changed out too. By contacting Wells@ 888-492-2782 with your model & serial # in front of you, they will be able to give you the part #s needed. If they will not sell you the parts then you can probably purchase them from Stove Parts Supply in Ft. Worth Texas
