Heater Circuit Operation: Explained by using an MTI-10XL 3PH 415V unit as an example. Refer to the pictures on page 5. - When the AutoFry is first turned on the temperature probe (#1) (in the oil) will sense the oil temperature and send it back to the circuit board (#2). The display board will then show this temperature. - If the circuit board registers a temp. lower than 179°C the board will put out 240ACV from terminals J8 & J9 (#3) to the coil relay (#4). - When the board registers a temp. higher than 179°, this output will drop to 0ACV. - This will allow the coil relay to close and send 240AVC to the coil of the e-safe contactor (#5). - The e-safe contactor (#6) will then close sending 240ACV across three phases to the heating element plugs (#7). - In order for the e-safe contactor to receive all three phases, the heater relays (#8 & 9) must be closed. - In order for these relays to close the exhaust fan must be running and the high limit switch (#10), located inside the heating element assembly, must be closed. - The heating element (#11) will begin heating the oil. MTI-40C & 40E 415V, 3PH heater circuit operates identically to the MTI-10XL 415V, 3PH. The only difference is there is double. Each side can be operated independently.

Error Codes • 
Not Ready for 30 minutes Symptoms • Oil stays at room temperature and the screen shows wait heating. • Overheating. The oil temperature continues to rise past 179°C. Probable Cause • High limit tripped (press reset) • Check ohm resistance of element • Check continuity through high limit (must be closed) • Check condition of heater socket / plug • Check for continuity through plugs • Check voltage output of e-safe contactor • When unit is on and trying to heat, there should be 240ACV from this output • Check voltage out from circuit board (J8 & J9) • When unit is on and trying to heat, there should be 240V across these terminals. • It is not uncommon to have the oil temp. on the display board rise above 179°C. This can be caused from the coil pulsing on and off to maintain the oil temp. combined with the hot oil swirling in the oil pot. • If the temp. on the display goes above 205°C, shut the AutoFry off and check the actual oil temp. to see if it is overheating. • If the actual oil temp. is 205°C, trace voltage through heater circuit and check to see if the circuit board is putting out constant voltage out of the J8 & J9 terminals. See pages 6 & 8 for details on heater circuit. • If the actual oil temp. is closer to 179°C, check the temperature circuit for poor connections. See pages for details on temperature circuit.

There is a lot of oil on the inside floor of the AutoFry. Is the oil pot leaking? A: It is unlikely that the oil pot is leaking. Check the following items first. • Is the drain valve open? • Is the oil pot over-filled? • Does your frozen product contain a lot of ice? Excessive ice will cause boil-over. • Does your frozen product contain a high level of water? • Are you over filling the food entry chute? • Are you entering a second order before the first order has dispensed? • Although the AutoFry is fully enclosed it is a deep fryer and splashing of oil is a normal condition. Q: My keypad is displaying Safety Switch and Could Not Find Home or Could Not Leave Home. A: Press the POWER button or un-plug the AutoFry. This will clear the display and silence the beeping. These are error messages for the basket motor. One of several things can cause these: • A wire cook basket that is not properly installed. Be sure the basket rod is seated correctly into the basket cam and the receiver clip. • A power interruption during a cook cycle. Remove the basket, run the unit through a short cook cycle then replace the basket. • Although the basket motor is very durable, it is a moving part. All moving parts are subject to malfunction. If this is the case please call the AutoFry service department. Q: The keypad on the AUTOFRY displays a Temperature Alarm. A: Press the POWER button on the keypad to clear the display. • Open Probe; Check the probe for a loose or damaged connection. • Too High; The circuit senses a temperature higher than 205°C . Check for loose, fouled or damaged plugs and sockets. • Not ready for 30 Minutes; Oil temperature fails to reach the minimum 163°C . Wait for the oil temperature to get above 163°C before entering the next order of food. Check for dirty, loose or damaged plugs and sockets. • Excessive Change; Any time the oil temperature fluctuates by 50° F in a five second period this error will be displayed. Check the oil level in the oil pot and add if necessary.
