I bought a fancy 2-burner fish cooker last year.  It's never worked exactly right as far as I'm concerned.  That is, too much yellow in the flame.

So, determined to fix this thing, I disconnected the lines and thoroughly power washed the burner assembly to make sure there were no dirt dobbers in there.

Reconnected the lines and got nothing.

Googled how to reset the regulator and followed the instructions to a tee.  Got nothing.

I disconnected the line at the burner and turned on the propane source and the valve in the line.  Got nothing.  Reset the regulator again.  Nothing.

Went to Academy and bought a new regulator.  Hooked it up and lit the burners.

I'm right back where I was.  Too much yellow in the flame.  Leaves a sooty residue on my fry pots.

Any suggestions other than to throw the fryer away???

Coat out side of pots with liquid dish soap. Soot comes right off when washing.
Flame should be blue not yellow. Try the air trick too.

Good idea.  I have the air wide open.  I'm beginning to believe they have the wrong size jets in the hoses and there is not enough propane getting through.

From what little I know, the yellow means there is not enough oxygen getting mixed with the propane.....only way to get more air in would be to add an air pump to the inlet.  [smile] [smile] [smile]

Ax I've got 2-3 propane rigs I've cooked with for years.  They always got the job done especially when I'm feeding a large group. But I have never been happy with how they cook.  Temp is a constant struggle.  Have to strain the grease constantly between batches.  I always manage but its a lot of work.  Not sure how to fix the problem you have other than replace it with something better built.  Sounds like a design flaw to me from a manufacturer with no quality control measures in place.

I bought this in the single model.  I much prefer cooking with this than propane.  It is much easier to maintain temp and cooks great.  The baskets make the fish easy to manage.  I wish I would have bought the double model like the one in the link.

Too much fuel. Try cracking the propane tank open just a little AND very slowly  ( not wide open ) adjust the fuel to low, then open and play with the air mixture vent. You want little blue flames. It might be a little dirty or grease in the burner holes, let it burn for a 1/2 hr..check air venturi for blockage, and holes under the burner, if all fails put a cheap pizza pan between the pot to keep it clean.

I almost went fishing until I realized it was Sun. too many jet skiers and speed boaters. I am going to practice with my new Hook7 with Chirps and Chartplotter that I upgraded from the Elite 7 for 200.00, using the Lowrance 5 year trade up deal. It's 100% better than my old unit.

Russcat.I was wondering on the Cabela's fryer if you have trouble keeping the electrical magnetic cord attached to the unit? Mine seems to fall off all the time at the worst time. Any suggestions
