Weekly Maintenance Do not unplug the fryer and always make sure the fryer is turned off Do not touch heater module, oil vat or oil unless you are sure it has cooled 1) Open front panel by lifting and turning latches. Lift it off its hinges. The front panel can be cleaned as is or apart if preferred. 2) Remove air filter cartridge and set aside (for replacement, see page 17). Do not wash air filter cartridge 3) Remove grease filter tray from cabinet. Remove grease filter from tray and drain any oil that has accumulated. Wash both parts in soap and hot water. Rinse well in hot water and dry. Page 15 of 41 OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 CLEANING (Continued) 4) Pour cooking oil from vat into containers for disposal. Have empty containers handy for proper disposal of used cooking oil. A rendering company can help with proper disposal. 5) Remove basket lift, oil vat and heater module (picture right). Use a spray on oven cleaner and enclose with plastic bag for at least one hour or leave overnight if possible. Wash in soap and hot water and rinse well in hot water. Rinse parts in a solution of: 1 part white vinegar [5% acetic acid] and 2 parts water. The vinegar rinse is very important. It neutralizes soap residue that causes oil breakdown foaming. Soap residue turns oil dark and reduces its performance significantly. Clear water rinse parts. Clean the male and female terminals on connectors with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. The heater box must NOT be immersed in water or other liquid. Do not spray male connector 6) Remove spill tray and drain any oil that has accumulated. Wash in soap and hot water. Rinse well in hot water and dry. 7) With internal components removed, clean cooking and filter compartments with grease cutting soap or oven cleaner if necessary. Rinse with damp cloth and dry.

Replacement is safer and easier when the fryer is cool rather than hot. • Only PERFECT FRY filters may be used in your PERFECT FRYER. Steps to replace air filter cartridge: 1) Open front panel by lifting and turning latches 2) Release latch on air filter cage, and remove air filter cage and air filter cartridge from filter compartment 3) Remove old used air filter cartridge from air filter cage 4) Wipe air filter cage clean 5) Fit air filter cage over new air filter cartridge and write date on cartridge (⇧⇧ Arrows up) 6) Install air filter cage and new air filter cartridge firmly back into filter compartment and latch in place 7) Close front panel and latch shut PFS Automatic Extinguisher • The PFS automatic extinguisher must be inspected monthly by the owner/operator and semi-annually by authorized service personnel as per NFPA 17A. It is important that a maintenance program is set up with a local fire service company to ensure that local jurisdictional codes are being met. Please refer to PFS automatic extinguisher (page 38) for more information. Page 17 of 41 OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 TIPS ON DEEP FRYING Great Food in Less Time • Use premium quality commercial deep frying oil. Canola and Soybean oils are recommended. Do not use household cooking oils from your local supermarket. Poor quality oils may shorten the life of the air filter cartridge. • Keep food frozen until ready to fry. Frozen product will absorb less oil during the cooking process. • Remove ice from food. Ice results in excess bubbling and spillage of oil out of the vat.

• Minimize the moisture. Excess moisture extends the cooking time. Water, ice, sugar and breading all contribute to shortening the life of the oil. MINIMIZE THE MOISTURE REDUCE THE COOKING TIME MAXIMIZE THE PROFIT

• Try to reduce the amount of breading that falls off of the food. Breading often has sugar and other ingredients that will reduce the oil’s life and darken the appearance of food. Consider filtering the oil to remove the breading particles. • Do not overfill the basket. Excess food may not be cooked properly. Common Questions • How Much Oil to Use? The PERFECT FRY has a capacity of 2 gallons of oil (8L). Fill the oil vat to the cold line only. • How Much to Fry? Fill the basket to the fill line only. The basket has an approximate capacity of 2 lbs (1 kg) of product per cycle. • What is the Ideal Temperature Range for Cooking? The ideal temperature range for cooking product is between 350°F and 360°F (177°C and 182°C). The factory default setting for cooking temperature is 350°F (177°C). • Should Frozen Food Be Defrosted? DO NOT THAW FROZEN FOOD! Frozen foods only should be put directly into the fryer in order to minimize moisture. • Can I Refreeze Frozen Foods? NO, do not refreeze frozen foods. Foods that are refrozen can absorb more oil, which will result in a dry, brittle and tasteless product. Page 18 of 41 OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 OIL FACTS Frying oil is especially formulated to withstand high temperatures. For this reason, you must ensure you are using the right product. Liquid vegetable shortening is produced by several companies; the oil has an additive and/or has been formulated to increase the performance during high temperature usage. DO NOT USE OIL THAT IS RECOMMENDED BOTH FOR SALAD AND FRYING! Fill the oil vat to the cold line only. The oil expands as it heats and if overfilled, the bottom of the basket will remain in the oil when in the up/serve position. How Much to Fry? • Fill the basket no higher than the fill line. Do not overload the basket. • Keep baskets clean and free of breading/batter build up. • Remove ice crystals or excess water before frying. • Do not salt or season before frying. • Remove surplus and/or batter before frying. • Do not allow frozen food to thaw before frying. • Drain fried foods before serving. How Hot is TOO Hot? Ideal frying temperature range is between 350°F and 360°F (177°C and 182°C). Factory default setting is 350°F (177°C). When frying at too low a temperature, food absorbs more oil which increases oil consumption. Excessive Oil Usage? The fried product is absorbing oil. Possible reasons for this include: • Excess breading or batter, shake off excess before frying. • Allow basket to drain longer, adjust the drain time. • Food is being allowed to thaw before frying. Cleaning Your Fryer? • Refer to the Cleaning section of this owner’s manual. Remember to clean the basket and drip tray. Filtering Your Oil? The most important procedure you can do is to maintain the oil, extending its life: • Filter at least once a day, preferably first thing in the morning when the oil is at room temperature. • Filtering removes all the contaminants from the previous days cooking. • Clean the oil vat. Points to Remember: • Clean the cooking chamber at least once a week and rinse thoroughly. • Filter oil daily. • Do not overheat oil. • Use the standby mode when possible. • Do not salt product prior to frying. • Remove ice crystals and moisture before frying. • Maintain oil level in vat, check to ensure it is at the hot line often. • The oil is dead when foaming appears continuously on the oil surface Your oil, product taste, and customers depend on you. Page 19 of 41 OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 OIL FACTS (Continued) If the oil temperature is set too high, the food will cook on the exterior and the interior will be undercooked. When the interior is cooked completely, the exterior will be overdone or burnt. The higher temperature will also cause the oil to break down faster and smoke. During slow periods, take advantage of the standby mode which allows the oil to cool down to 275°F (135°C), prolonging the oil life and reducing energy costs while allowing quick recover time when required. The oil temperature should not be adjusted when cooking different products. Adjust the cooking time instead. Frozen Foods Put frozen foods directly into the fryer. DO NOT THAW FROZEN FOODS! Blot excess water from food before frying. Remove ice crystals that may be at the bottom of the product bag. OIL AND WATER DO NOT MIX! Water reacts with oil and makes it break down rapidly resulting in darkening, smoking and foaming (a process called hydrolysis). Excess water in the oil can cause the following problems: • Unnecessary temperature drop meaning longer cooking times. • More energy usage to maintain cooking temperature. • Excessive splattering inside the fryer resulting in a mess to clean up. • Decreased life of the air filter and the oil. Refreezing Frozen Foods? Frozen foods should be fried frozen. Foods that are refrozen can absorb more oil and make your fried foods taste greasy. Refrozen food forms excessive ice and these ice crystals can bond food pieces together causing clumping. Remember: • Always FRY FOOD FROZEN. • NEVER REFREEZE thawed food. • REMOVE ice crystals from product before frying. • DO NOT accept thawed or refrozen product from supplier. Excessive Foaming? The main reason for foaming is improper rinsing of oil vat after cleaning: • To remove soap residue, rinse 3 times with water after cleaning or neutralize with a water and vinegar solution (1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water). • Take care of your oil; use standby mode during slow periods. High temperature and oxygen contribute to oil breakdown. Filter oil and clean vat at least once a day when using heavily breaded products. Excessive Smoking/Oil Darkening? • Oil is too hot, check temperature. • Inadequate filtering, breading or batter build-up in vat causes oil breakdown, giving food a bitter taste. • Moisture content is too high. Use precooked frozen products only. Remember to remove ice crystals. Grease Soaked Food? • Frozen food is being allowed to thaw before frying. • Oil is in the advanced stages of breakdown, replace immediately. • Oil temperature is too low, check temperature. • Product has too much breading or batter, remove excess. Page 20 of 41 OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 OIL FACTS (Continued) Food Not Browning Properly? • New oil may not brown the product; check color again after a few basket loads. • Too much product is in the basket; fill no higher than the fill line. • Product is not frying long enough, follow manufacturers suggested cooking times. • Oil temperature is too low, check oil temperature. • Product is frying in excess foam. • Oil level is too low, check the oil level. Premature Oil Breakdown? • Oil is at full temperature during slow periods, use standby mode. • Oil is contaminated. Never use wire brushes, copper pads or steel wool for cleaning. Use a hard bristle brush and filter oil regularly. Rinse with water vinegar solution. • Also, see section; HOW HOT IS TOO HOT?

CTSTM increases cooking time to accommodate for differences in product moisture content, basket-load size, and initial temperature. • A proper CTSTM setting will ensure a high quality product. For example; 2 lbs of French fries will cook to the same quality as only 6 ounces of French Fries. • In addition to having a “global” CTSTM setting under the Operation Options menu for manually entered cook cycles, each preset can be programmed with its own individual setting. This provides for a lot of flexibility among different food products. • Some experimenting with the range of 1 to 9 may be required to achieve optimum quality. A value of 5 is a good place to start and is the default. • A setting of 0 means no CTSTM whatsoever.

PFS AUTOMATIC EXTINGUISHER Note: Please refer to the PFS Automatic Extinguisher Installation, Inspection, Maintenance & Recharge Manual (L20-361) for more detailed information.

1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION The PFS consists of a cylinder assembly (with pressure switch and gauge), actuating lever, fusible link assembly, manual pull station, and two nozzles. It is designed and acceptable for use in areas that have ambient conditions between 32°F (0°C) and 120°F (50°C). 2. OPERATION Automatic Operation Upon the detection of a fire, the PFS will automatically operate. The fusible link rated at 280oF (138oC) will operate when exposed to the fire and operate the PFS automatic extinguisher unit. When operated, the PFS unit will discharge wet chemical agent through the provided discharge piping and distribution nozzles. Manual Operation The PFS unit can also be operated manually by pulling the remote lever (to be mounted on the front of the cooking appliance) that is clearly marked “In Case Of Fire - PULL”. IMPORTANT: The manual pull handle is to be pulled ONLY IN CASE OF FIRE in the PERFECT FRYER (use when the automatic system has failed). NOTE: Power shut-off is also achieved by system operation. If the pressure in the cylinder(s) drops below 92 psi (6.3 bar), the pressure switch opens, deactivating the power relay causing the appliance to de-energize. 3. INSPECTION & MAINTENANCE The PFS must be serviced on a regular basis. Three types of servicing are required: Monthly An inspection or “quick check” must be conducted by the owner/operator and include verification of the following: 1) The PFS is in its proper location. 2) The PFS shows no physical damage or condition that might prevent operation. 3) The pressure gauge is in the green operating range. 4) The maintenance tag is in place and is up to date. 5) The manual pull is unobstructed. 6) The nozzle blow-off caps are intact and undamaged. Semi-Annually The system must be inspected by authorized service personnel, as per NFPA 17A and include the following: 1) A check to see that the hazard has not changed. 2) Examination of the fusible link, cylinder, tubing, nozzles and all auxiliary equipment. 3) Fusible links must be replaced at least annually from the date of installation. They must be destroyed when removed. They need to be replaced with the proper rated link (6GT587). A fusible link loaded with grease or other material can result in an excessive delay in actuation. 4) Verification that the agent distribution piping is not obstructed. Remove the blow- off caps (6GT014) from the nozzles to ensure that they are free of grease build-up and inspect them for deterioration. Replace them as necessary.

OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 The PFS must be stored above 32°F (0°C) Page 38 of 41 OWNER’S MANUAL FOR ALL PFC MODELS –1/20/2020 PFS AUTOMATIC EXTINGUISHER (Continued) Inspection and Maintenance Semi-Annually (continued)

5) Where semi-annual maintenance of any wet chemical containers or PFS components reveals conditions such as, but not limited to, corrosion or pitting in excess of manufactured limits, structural damage or fire damage, repairs by soldering, welding, or brazing, the affected part(s) shall be replaced or hydrostatically tested. The hydrostatic testing of wet chemical containers shall follow the applicable procedures outlined in NFPA 17A. 6) All wet chemical systems must be tested for proper operation. A discharge of the wet chemical is normally not part of the test. Simply remove one lead from the pressure switch to initiate appliance shut-down. 7) Where the maintenance of the PFS reveals defective parts that could cause an impairment or failure of proper operation of the PFS, the affected parts must be replaced or repaired. 8) The maintenance report, with recommendations if any, shall be filed with the owner or with the designated party responsible for the PFS. 9) The PFS must have a tag or label indicating the month and year the maintenance is performed and identifying the person performing the service. Only the current tag or label must remain in place. Twelve Years Maintenance must be done by authorized service personnel, as per NFPA 17A and include the following: 1) The wet chemical extinguishing agent must be removed and discarded. 2) The cylinder needs to be hydrostatically tested to 300 psi (21 bar). 3) If the cylinder shows no signs of rupture or distortion, recharge the PFS as directed in the recharging instructions.

What is covered This warranty is limited to the repair or replacement at the Company’s option, without charge, of any part found to be defective within the warranty period and reasonable expenses incurred for freight and material for the installation of such part; in addition, the Company’s obligation shall be limited to reimbursement for normal labor on such parts. Perfect Fry, Inc. agrees to pay the Authorized Service and Parts Distributor, for any labor and material required to repair or replace, at the Company’s option, any part which may fail due to defects in material or workmanship during the above general warranty period. Additional Part Only Warranty After the end of the above general warranty, the computer is warranted to be free of defects for an additional one (1) year. This additional warranty only covers the cost of the part. Customer is responsible for all labor and shipping costs during this warranty period. How to Keep Your Warranty in Force • Make sure any shipping damages are reported immediately. Damages of this nature are the responsibility of the carrier and must be reported by the receiver. • Install the appliance properly. This is the responsibility of the installer and the procedures are outlined in the manual. • Register your equipment at http://www.perfectfry.com. This is necessary to start your warranty and to obtain the unlock code for the computer. The unlock code will be sent via email. • Do not install the appliance in a home or residence. • Maintain the appliance properly. This is the responsibility of the purchaser of the appliance and the procedures are outlined in the manual. • Replace the air filter at regular intervals to prevent filter saturation. Record when the air filter is replaced in the Installation & Operations Manual. Also regularly inspect the door gasket for gaps, cracks and tears. Failure to do so could result in a non-warranty main fan failure due to grease build up. • Adjustments, such as calibration, leveling, tightening of fasteners or plumbing or electrical connections normally associated with initial installation are outlined in the manual and are not covered under warranty. • Damages as a result of fire, flood or other acts of God are not covered under this warranty. • Use the appliance for what it is intended. If the appliance is used for a purpose other than for which it was intended or designed, resulting damages are not covered under the warranty. • Make sure that the appliance has the correct voltage. If a failure is due to incorrect or erratic voltage, these damages are not covered under the warranty. • Do not materially alter or modify the appliance. • Do not obliterate, remove or alter the serial number rating plate. • Use only Genuine OEM parts from Perfect Fry or its Authorized Parts and Service Distributors. Repairs are not covered by the warranty if non-OEM parts or non-Authorized Parts and Service Distributors are used. • Failures that are not attributable to a defect in materials or workmanship are not covered. This warranty specifically excludes parts which wear or would be replaced under normal usage, including, but not limited to, electric lamps, fuses, interior or exterior finishes, filters and gaskets. Limits to the Warranty Charges for mileage over one hundred (100) miles and travel time over two (2) hours from the Authorized Service and Parts Distributor are not covered under this warranty. Extended mileage charges are the responsibility of the individual or firm requesting these services. If any oral statements have been made regarding the appliance, these statements do not constitute warranties and are not part of the contract of sale. This limited warranty constitutes the complete, final and exclusive statement with regard to warranties. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES WHETHER WRITTEN, ORAL OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR WARRANTY AGAINST LATENT DEFECTS. Limitations of Liability In the event of a warranty or other claim, the sole obligation of Perfect Fry will be limited to the repair or replacement, at the Company’s discretion, of the appliance or the component part. This repair or replacement will be at the expense of Perfect Fry except as limited by this warranty statement. Any repair or replacement under this warranty does not constitute an extension in time to the original warranty. Parts covered under this warranty will be repaired or replaced, at the Company’s discretion, with new or functionally operative parts. The liability of Perfect Fry on any claim of any kind, including claims based on warranty, express or implied contract, negligence, strict liability or any other legal theories will be limited to the repair or replacement of the appliance. This liability will not include, and the purchaser specifically renounces any right to recover special, incidental, consequential or other damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, injuries to persons, damage to property, loss of profits or anticipated loss of the use of this appliance. If any provision of this warranty is unenforceable under the law of any jurisdiction, that provision only will be inapplicable there, and the remainder of the warranty will remain unaffected. The maximum exclusion or limitation allowed by law will be substituted for the unenforceable provision.
