How Long Should a Commercial Deep Fryer Last?
It’s common for commercial deep fryers to experience heavy usage day in and day out. That means that cleanings, servicing, and maintenance must be performed regularly and thoroughly. Just how long a commercial fryer will last depends on the brand, usage, and maintenance schedule. A quality, heavy-duty commercial fryer that is well taken care of will typically last between 7-10 years. You can maximize the lifespan by remaining committed to regular preventative maintenance.
What Type of Repairs Are Most Common for Commercial Fryers?
There are several things that can go wrong with commercial fryers making it necessary to call for repairs. The most common issues include:
- Pilot light won’t stay lit – In order for a commercial fryer to work, the pilot light must stay lit. If yours doesn’t wan to stay lit, one of our technicians can diagnose the problem and repair your fryer quickly.
- Faulty thermostat – With deep fryers, it’s essential to maintain a high, consistent temperature. When a thermostat is faulty, it may cause your oil to overheat, which will not only overcook food, but it may also pose a danger to your employees, customers, and kitchen. On the other hand, a malfunctioning thermostat may also cause your oil to not get hot enough. This can result in undercooked food or much longer cooking times. We are often able to repair or replace thermostats, which means you won’t have to buy a whole new appliance.
- Burners are not completely igniting – If you notice that the burners on your commercial fryer are not igniting completely, it may be because there is a clog somewhere in system. This is another situation that should be investigated by a professional.
How Often Should a Commercial Fryer Be Cleaned?
Proper maintenance is the key to maximizing the lifespan of your commercial fryer. That means that it should be cleaned daily, instead of simply turning it off when you close each day. Wiping down the exterior of the fryer and running the baskets through the dishwasher should be done daily.
Every three to six months, you should perform a deep cleaning on your commercial deep fryer. This is done when you have completely drained the oil from the fryer. Using water and a commercial grade cleaning solution, fill the fryer and allow the solution to come to a simmer for about an hour. You can clean the inside of the vat with a long-handled brush, and then drain, rinse, and refill with oil.
It’s also a good idea to have your fryer professionally inspected by one of our technicians at least once a year. Our technicians can identify any parts that are worn out and need to be replaced before they fail and could cause more costly repairs or replacements in the future.
