Turkey Fryer Timer Disable

Post by Antler24 » Sat Oct 03, 2015 1:24 pm

Ok I was asked to do a little write up on this as a lot of people use the turkey fryer burners. We all know how annoying that 20 minute timer gets.

First thing, use 1/2" wrench to take off gas line. Take the timer button off, and use a screw driver to remove the cover on the timer box. There should be a little plunger type thing there that will move when you turn on the timer, and go back when the timer runs out. I set the mechanism to the ON position and removed the plunger, so that the timer wouldn't pull it back. Last step, reassemble!
It really is that simple took me 5 minutes max. This mod will not disable the auto shut off, which will automatically shut off (duh) the gas if the burner happens to blow out. I think this is a great safety feature and should not be removed.

I think some other burners have some kind of wiring in the timer, I'm not sure about doing those but I know there's several videos on that style on utube.

Happy stillin hope I've helped someone!
