Chick-fil-A Henny Penny PFE 500/PFG 600 Pressure Fryer Regular Maintenance Form Filter pump motor protector-manual reset Filtering of shortening Turn the thermostat and the main power switch to the OFF position Remove and clean the fry basket in soap and water Rinse thoroughly Use a metal spatula to scrape any build-up from the sides of the frypot. Do not scrape heating element on electric units, or the curved portion of the gas frypot Open the drain valve very slowly, half a turn at first and then slowly to the full open position. This will prevent excessive splashing of the hot shortening as it drains into the filter drain pan As the shortening drains from the frypot, use fryer brushes to clean the side of the frypot and the heating elements. If the drain fills with breading, use the white brush to push the breading into the filter pan When all of the shortening has drained, scrape or brush the sides and the bottom of the frypot Close the drain valve Open the filter valve Lower lid and hold closed Move the main power switch to the PUMP position. Carefully open the lid to see if the shortening is returning properly. Fill frypot 1/3 full, then turn off pump. Wash down and scrub the sides of the frypot. Use “L” brush to clean the heating elements. After the sides and bottom are cleaned, open the drain valve. Pump all the shortening out of the filter pan and back into the frypot. Close lid during first surge of pumping. When the pump is pumping air only, the shortening in the frypot will appear to be boiling. Close the filter valve first and then move the main power switch from PUMP to OFF. This will keep the filter pump and lines from filling up with shortening. Check the level of the shortening if necessary, until it reaches the level indicator line on the rear wall of the frypot, or the top level indicator line on model 500s. After completing the filtering operation, empty and replace the condensation drain pan If frying is to be continued at this time, move the main power switch back to the ON position, and allow time for reheating of the shortening Cleaning the Optional Crumb Pan Filter Pump Problem Prevention Changing the Filter Envelope Changing the Charcoal Filter Cleaning the Frypot Turn the main power switch to OFF, and unplug unit from the wall receptacle If hot shortening is present in the frypot, it must be drained by slowly opening the drain valve handle one half turn.
