Faulty thermostats need attention, since they will set off a fryer's high-limit sensor. If the fryer temperature exceeds 400 degrees F and the thermostat is not working, the high-limit sensor will shut down the fryer. If both the thermostat and high-limit sensor are not operable, this can cause a fire. Thompson also recommends using vat covers when fryers are off. "Light and heat will darken the oil, requir- ing more frequent filtering or oil replacement, which increases costs," he says. Cabinet rust represents another potential indication that a fryer is nearing the end of its service life. This typically occurs when fryer surfaces have regular contact with water. Because costs are high to tear down and replace major fryer parts, a se- verely rusted fryer will most likely need replacing.
