DANGER

EXPLOSION HAZARD

In the event a gas odor is detected, shut down equipment at the main shut off valve. Immediately call the emergency phone number of your gas supplier.

WARNING

BURN HAZARD

CONTACT WITH HOT OIL WILL CAUSE SEVERE BURNS. ALWAYS USE CAUTION. OIL AT 200°F IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN BOILING WATER.

The fryer filter system is contained in a cabinet that is part of a battery that includes deep fryers (see Figure 3). The frypot-drains of the fryers are connected to a pipe that drains into a filter pan in the bottom of the filter cabinet. When the power switch of the filter system is turned on, a pump draws the drained oil through a filter on the bottom of the filter pan to remove breading and other impurities, and pumps the oil out of a discharge hose. The discharge hose can be positioned to return the filtered oil to a frypot, to pump it into a container for disposal, or to pump it into a container for storage while the frypot is cleaned.

FILTERING FRYER OIL

The oil of deep fryers should be filtered regularly to promote longer oil life.

1.Wear thermal oven mitts during this procedure to prevent burns from hot oil and metal surfaces of the fryer.

2.Make sure that two sheets of filter are properly positioned in the filter pan as described on page 10.

3.Set the thermostat of the fryer to the OFF position.

OPERATION

SECTIONAL FRYER FILTER SYSTEM

WARNING

Failure to make sure that the thermostat is in the OFF position during the following procedure may result in equipment damage and/or personal injury.

4.Stir 8 ounces of Blodgett Range filter powder into the oil of the fryer. The filter powder helps extend oil life by removing impurities.

5.Allow the oil to cool for 3 minutes after adding the filter powder.

6.Slowly open the drain valve handle beneath the frypot. The drain is opened by turning the handle so that it is aligned with the drain outlet pipe. Use care when opening this valve to avoid being splashed by hot oil. If necessary, use a small diameter brush to ream-out the drain from inside the frypot to open any clogs which might develop as the oil drains

7.Connect the filter discharge hose to the quick disconnect fitting (see Figure 4). Always make sure that the hose coupling is securely mated to the quick disconnect fitting before turning on the pump.

8.Position the wand end of the filter discharge hose over the now empty frypot. Always grasp the filter discharge hose by the wooden sleeve near the wand end.

9.Place the filter’s power switch in the ON position.

10.Leave the fryer’s drain valve open to allow the filtered oil being pumped to the frypot to drain out the bottom through the drain valve. Use a large brush to “wash-down” the frypot with the hot oil as it circulates through the frypot. Use care to avoid being splashed and burned by the hot oil. Continue doing this for at least 2 minutes.

11.Close the fryer drain valve.

12.Allow all of the filtered oil to be pumped to the frypot. The oil will begin to bubble as the pumping is completed and air fills the filter discharge hose. Place the pump switch in the OFF position.

13.If necessary, add oil to the fryer to bring the oil level up to the proper level.

14.Adjust the fryer thermostat to the desired cooking temperature, and heat the oil until it reaches the proper cooking temperature.

15.Replace the filter paper (see page 10) daily, or more often, if necessary.

“BOIL-OUT CLEANING OF FRYER

The fryer cleaning process known as a “boil-out” should be performed when necessary, and every time the fryer oil is replaced.

WARNING

Perform the steps of this procedure as described to avoid possible equipment damage, violation of warranty provisions, or personal injury.

1.Wear thermal oven mitts during this procedure to protect your skin from bums due to splashing of hot liquids.

2.Make sure that two sheets of filter are properly positioned in the filter pan as described on page 10.

3.If the oil in the fryer is “cold” (that is, at room temperature), first heat the oil briefly so that it is liquid enough to be removed by the filter system. Turn the fryer thermostat to 150°F and heat the oil until the burners go out. Stir the oil well to make sure that it is fully dissolved. Stirring may cause the burners to come on again briefly. Wait for the burners go out again.

4.Place the fryer thermostat in the OFF position and wait two minutes.

5.Slowly open the drain valve handle beneath the frypot. The drain is opened by turning the handle so that it is aligned with the drain outlet pipe. Use care when opening this valve to avoid being splashed by hot oil. If necessary, use a small diameter brush to ream-out the drain from inside the frypot to open any clogs which might develop as the oil drains.

6.Connect the filter discharge hose to the quick disconnect fitting (see Figure 4). Always make sure that the hose coupling is securely mated to the quick disconnect fitting before turning on the pump.

7.Position the wand end of the filter discharge hose over the now empty frypot. Always grasp the filter discharge hose by the wooden sleeve near the wand end.

8.Place the filter’s power switch in the ON position.

PAGE 8 OF 20

OWNERS MANUAL 1184960

SECTIONAL FRYER FILTER SYSTEM

OPERATION

9.Leave the fryer’s drain valve open to allow the filtered oil being pumped to the frypot to drain out the bottom through the drain valve. Use a large brush to “wash-down” the frypot with the hot oil as it circulates through the frypot. Use care to avoid being splashed and burned by the hot oil. Continue doing this for at least 2 minutes.

10.When all accumulated breading and crumbs have been washed from the bottom of the frypot, place the filter power switch in the OFF position and allow the oil to drain.

11.When all the oil has drained out of the frypot, close the frypot drain valve.

WARNING

ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT THE CONTAINERS THAT ARE USED IN THE NEXT STEP WILL SAFELY HOLD HOT OIL. Plastic is generally not safe as it may melt and break. Metal containers that do not leak are preferable to containers made of other materials. Failure to exercise the this precaution may result in serious personal injury.

12.Position an appropriate container (or containers) to hold the fryer oil while the frypot is being cleaned. REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL BE REMOVING APPROXIMATELY 5 GALLONS OF OIL. Make sure that the container(s) that you have selected will hold all of the oil. The oil that you will remove weighs 45 to 65 pounds, and is still very hot. Placing the oil in two or more containers makes for a lighter load and decreases the possibility of injury by splashing.

13.Position the wand end of the filter discharge hose over a container that you have positioned to receive the oil from the filter. Always grasp the filter discharge hose by the wooden sleeve near the wand end.

14.Place the filter’s power switch in the ON position to pump the oil out through the filter discharge hose.

15.When all the oil has been removed from the drain pan, place the filter’s power switch in the OFF position.

16.Disconnect the filter discharge hose at the quick disconnect fitting. Hold both ends of the hose at the same height to avoid spilling oil that may be in the hose. Carefully drain the hose into the container that is holding the oil.

17.Clean the filter pan using the procedure on page 10, except do NOT put the drain pan back into the filter cabinet.

18.Make sure that the fryer’s drain valve is closed.

19.Fill the frypot with water to the oil-level mark located on the back of the frypot interior.

20.Carefully add Blodgett Range Boil Out to the water following the directions on the container.

21.Set the fryer’s thermostat to 200°F.

CAUTION

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES LEAVE THE FRYER UNATTENDED DURING THIS PROCEDURE AS THE HEAT MUST BE CAREFULLY MONITORED TO PREVENT THE FRYPOT FROM OVERFLOWING DUE TO BOILING. OVERFLOW OF THE FRYPOT MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.

22.Allow the cleaning solution to heat for 20 minutes. Scrub the interior of the frypot with the large pot brush during this period to remove build-up.

23.Position a heat-resistant container (for example, a pail) beneath the drain-pipe outlet inside the filter cabinet. Slowly open the fryer’s drain valve to allow the cleaning solution to drain into the container. Be careful not to over fill the container.

24.Close the fryer’s drain valve.

25.Rinse the inside of the frypot with fresh water, then open the fryer’s drain valve to drain the rinse water into the container in the filter cabinet.

26.Mop-out excess water from the frypot with a dry cloth.

27.Close the fryer’s drain valve.

28.Disconnect the filter discharge hose, rinse it out, and put it away.

29.Place the filter pan in the filter cabinet and secure its hose connection with the quick disconnect fitting (push upward on the wooden ring while inserting the end of the hose).

30.Re-attach the drain-pipe nipple.

31.If the oil is to be reused, carefully pour it into the fryer’s frypot. Otherwise, properly dispose of the oil and refill the fryer’s frypot according to the procedure described in the fryer’s manual. If necessary, add oil to the frypot to bring the oil level up to the proper level.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

WARNING

BURN HAZARD

CONTACT WITH HOT OIL WILL CAUSE SEVERE BURNS. ALWAYS USE CAUTION. OIL AT 200°F IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN BOILING WATER.

Blodgett Range appliances are sturdily constructed of the best materials and are designed to provide durable service when treated with ordinary care. To expect the best performance, your equipment must be maintained in good condition and cleaned daily. Naturally, the periods for this care and cleaning depend on the amount and degree of usage.

Following cleaning procedures will enhance long life for your equipment. Climatic conditions (such as salt air) may require more thorough and frequent cleaning or the life of the equipment could be adversely affected.

Keep exposed, cleanable areas of the filter system clean at all times. In most situations, one layer of filter paper is replaced each day, while the filter pan is cleaned when the connected fryers are cleaned. Figure 4 on page 7 shows the filter-pan components mentioned in the following cleaning procedures.

DAILY REPLACEMENT OF FILTER PAPER

Two sheets of filter paper are used in the filter pan. During normal operation, the top sheet is discarded on a daily basis. The bottom sheet is then placed on top of a new sheet of filter paper. Both sheets should be changed following a “boil-out” cleaning the connected fryers.

The following procedure for replacement of filter paper on a daily basis:

1.Check that the filter pan does not contain oil, and that the power switch is in the OFF position.

2.Check that the drain valves of all connected fryers are in the closed position.

3.If necessary, allow the filter pan to cool.

4.Remove the drain-pipe nipple from the end of the drain-pipe outlet. (The drain-pipe nipple minimizes the splashing of hot oil when a frypot is drained into the filter pan.)

5.Disconnect the drain pan’s stainless steel hose from the quick-disconnect fitting by pushing upward on the wooden ring of the quick-disconnect and exerting downward pressure on the connector at the end of the hose.

6.Pull the filter pan forward and out of the filter system cabinet.

7.Remove accumulated breading and residue from the surface of the filter paper with a metal crumb shovel. Remove residue from the small ledge which surrounds the filter-paper hold-down frame.

8.Release the four latches that secure the filter-paper hold-down frame, and remove the hold-down frame from the filter pan.

9.Beginning at one end of the filter pan, carefully roll-up the top-sheet of filter paper and discard it.

10.Lift the edge of the bottom-sheet of filter paper and slip a clean sheet of filter paper beneath it.

11.Place the filter-paper hold-down rack on top of the filter paper and secure it with the four latches.

12.Place the filter pan in the filter cabinet and secure its hose connection with the quick disconnect fitting (push upward on the wooden ring while inserting the end of the hose).

13.Re-attach the drain-pipe nipple.

CLEANING THE FILTER PAN

The filter pan should be thoroughly cleaned as needed. Use only Blodgett Range Cleanser or a cleanser such as Ajax or Comet to clean the interior surfaces and components of the filter pan. LIQUID DISHWASHING DETERGENTS MAY LEAVE RESIDUES WHICH REDUCE OIL LIFE. The cleaning procedure is as follows:

1.Check that the filter pan does not contain oil, and that the power switch is in the OFF position.

2.Check that the drain valves of all connected fryers are in the closed position.

PAGE 10 OF 20

OWNERS MANUAL 1184960

3.If necessary, allow the filter pan to cool.

4.Remove the drain-pipe nipple from the end of the drain-pipe outlet. (The drain-pipe nipple minimizes the splashing of hot oil when a frypot is drained into the filter pan.)

5.Disconnect the drain pan’s stainless steel hose from the quick-disconnect fitting by pushing upward on the wooden ring of the quick-disconnect and exerting downward pressure on the connector at the end of the hose.

6.Pull the filter pan forward and out of the filter system cabinet.

7.Release the four latches that secure the filter-paper hold-down frame. Remove the hold-down frame from the filter pan and place it in a sink for cleaning

8.Remove and discard both sheets of filter paper.

9.Remove the wire rack beneath the filter paper and placed it in a sink for cleaning.

10.Drain any remaining oil from the bottom of the filter pan into a proper waste receptacle. You must lift and tilt the filter pan to accomplish this. The filter pan is somewhat heavy, so you may need assistance.

11.Clean the interior of the filter pan with one of the recommended cleaners. Clean beneath the oil pick-up tube located in the bottom rear of the filter pan with a knife blade or other similar thin, flat instrument. Rinse the pan interior and mop out excess water with a dry cloth or paper toweling.

12.Clean, rinse, and dry the wire rack and filter-paper hold-down frame that you placed in the sink earlier.

13.Place the wire rack in the bottom of the drain pan.

14.Place two layers of new filter paper on top of the wire frame.

15.Place the filter-paper hold-down rack on top of the filter paper and secure it with the four latches.

16.Place the filter pan in the filter cabinet and secure its hose connection with the quick disconnect fitting (push upward on the wooden ring while inserting the end of the hose).

17.Re-attach the drain-pipe nipple.

CLEANING STAINLESS-STEEL SURFACES

To remove normal dirt, grease and product residue from stainless steel surfaces that operate at LOW temperature, use ordinary soap and water (with or without detergent) applied with a sponge or cloth. Dry thoroughly with a clean cloth.

To remove BAKED-ON grease and food splatter, or condensed vapors; apply cleanser to a damp cloth or sponge and rub cleanser on the metal in the direction of the polishing lines on the metal. Rubbing cleanser, as gently as possible, in the direction of the polished lines will not mar the finish of the stainless steel. NEVER RUB WITH A CIRCULAR MOTION. Soil and burnt deposits which do not respond to the above procedure can usually be removed by rubbing the surface with SCOTCH-BRITE scouring pads or STAINLESS scouring pads. DO NOT USE ORDINARY STEEL WOOL as any particles left on the surface will rust and further spoil the appearance of the finish. NEVER USE A WIRE BRUSH, STEEL SCOURING PADS (EXCEPT STAINLESS), SCRAPER, FILE OR OTHER STEEL TOOLS. Surfaces which are marred collect dirt more rapidly and become more difficult to clean. Marring also increases the possibility of corrosive attack. Refinishing may then be required.

“Heat tint” is darkened areas that sometimes appear on stainless steel surfaces where the area has been subjected to excessive heat. These darkened areas are caused by thickening of the protective surface of the stainless steel and are not harmful. Heat tint can normally be removed by the foregoing, but tint which does not respond to this procedure calls for a vigorous scouring in the direction of the polish lines using SCOTCH-BRITE scouring pads or a STAINLESS scouring pad in combination with a powered cleanser. Heat tint may be lessened by reducing heat to equipment during slack periods.

BLACK BAKED-ENAMEL SURFACES

Allow appliance to cool somewhat after use and wash black baked-enamel surfaces with a hot, mild detergent or soap solution. In particular, clean off all grease deposits. Dry thoroughly with a dry cloth.

PUMP MOTOR DOES NOT OPERATE

If the pump motor does not operate, check the following:

1.Check that the electric power source has power.

2.Disconnect the power and use a multimeter to verify that the power switch is functioning properly. If it is not, replace the power switch.

3.If the power switch is functioning properly, reconnect the power and place the power switch in the ON position. Then check the voltage at the pump motor. If the pump motor is not receiving the correct voltage, check the wiring. If the pump motor is receiving the correct voltage, but still does not run, replace the pump motor.

FILTER SYSTEM PUMPS SLOWLY

If the pump operates, but the filter system pumps slowly, check the following:

1.Check that the filter paper on the bottom of the drain pan is not clogged or torn.

2.Check that the filter-paper hold-down frame in the drain pan is latched on all four sides.

3.Check that the stainless steel flexible hose that connects the drain pan to the pump plumbing is not crimped or collapsed. If necessary, replace the hose.

4.Check that the quick-disconnect fittings securely lock onto the ends of the hose. If the end of the hose will not lock into the corresponding quick-disconnect, remove and replace the quick-disconnect fitting.

5.Disconnect the pump from the filter lines and check that there are no obstructions in the plumbing leading to and from the pump.

6.If no obstructions exist in the plumbing leading to and from the pump, remove and replace the filter pump assembly.
