Appliance Diagrams

The appliance timer motor should always indicate continuity and not be grounded. Appliance motors are usually easy to check and they may in most cases be detached from the appliance timer body. Cams are seldom defective, unless they should break, an unlikely occurrence. The appliance drive train may be checked visually. As for the appliance switch contacts, even though there may be twenty contacts within the appliance timer, you've only got one symptom or one appliance problem, and by looking at the appliance wiring diagram you can eliminate all but one or possibly two sets of these contacts. A point to point check with the VOM should then indicate whether they are at appliance fault.

Again, the key word is simplify. If you are going on a trip and consult the road map, you don't try to take in all of the lines tracing roadways within an entire state. You find your destination and disregard all routes except the one which will lead you to that point. When you look at the appliance wiring schematic it is easy to become confused by the maze of appliance electrical circuits pictured; yet you should only be interested in a very small portion of that web.

Just as you would use a road map, you should first locate your destination (the appliance part which is not operating) and plot your course from one side of the power line, through the part which is inoperative, to the other side of the appliance power line. In this manner you have plotted a complete electrical circuit, since you have passed from one side of the line to the other; and you will find that this "routing" procedure takes you through every appliance switch and connection which could cause the problem component to be inoperative. Now, by taking your meter and checking only those appliance components involved in your route, you should be able to pinpoint the faulty one.

There are two assets on your side that ease this procedure. The first of these is your own powers of deduction—where the Sherlock Holmes in you comes out. When you first became aware of the problem with the appliance, your first observation will give you many clues to the solution of the case. You will learn to make a mental note of every one of these, and then pursue them further to eliminate various appliance components which may not be at fault. As an example of this procedure, you find that the appliance motor is not running on your automatic washer. You note the position of the appliance timer dial when it stopped, and the setting of other appliance controls.

When you find the motor on the wiring appliance diagram, you see that it also has two speeds other than the high speed used on the appliance normal cycle. Turning the appliance on and placing the timer in another cycle allows you to see that the appliance motor does operate on the medium and low speeds. Now, returning to the appliance diagram and tracing the circuit through the conductor marked "high" to the motor, you see that this is controlled by a appliance switch on the console of the washer and by a contact within the timer. Since the appliance diagram shows you which timer contact is involved, this is the only timer test you have to make

T-Fal Actifry Low-Fat Multi-Cooker and Fryer

Having worked in countless kitchens over the years frying all sorts of everything I will be the first to say that deep fat fryers are not the most glamorous of kitchen appliances. After years of handling and cleaning stubborn grease we needed a big change and something more versatile as well as an appliance that is not so ugly that you want to hide it. I am writing this review after a year of use and am still as happy as when I purchased it. As well as the ease of cleaning and nice design health was the number one consideration. As well as this we needed a safer fryer for the house as we have numerous dogs, cats and children knocking about the house and after a near accident with a certain feline trying to escape out of the window whilst nearly frying the end of her tail we felt the time had come to move onto new pastures.

Plus the healthy side of the T-Fal Actifry Multi-Cooker Fryer (Only 1 tablespoon oil to make 2 pounds French fries) is you can then sit and enjoy real French fries, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, safe in the knowledge that they only contain 3% fat.

Cleaning and Settings

Product Setup

The machine comes apart bit by bit for cleaning and comes back polished clean in either the sink or dishwasher. This made a large impression on us after years of scrubbing gnarly grease this was a doddle. Safety was another major concern our old fryer was an accident waiting to happen, litres of boiling oil, spitting and dangerous to go near and demanding constant attention. This is where the automatic timer became very useful as well as the feature of not having to stir chips in boiling hot oil which definitely has its positive points :) The paddles inside the machine do the work for you and you can actually leave the room if you want and wait for an alarm and not worry that you may have burnt the house down.

Size and Capacity

I have found that at full capacity the T-Fal Actifry Multi-Cooker Fryer is suitable for a few of us  but when friends come round we have to do a couple of fry sessions which is no problem but we wish it could be a size bigger. Having said that it does take up quite a large space on the surface but fits in with its nice and modern design. Another problem I have had with our previous fryers is that the oil blurs the plastic viewing screen but because of the large fan this remains clear. Even in a permanent spot in the kitchen the boiling oil does not stick to and stain the walls like our old ones did. It does not leave the stale odour of fried food and used oil in the room either.

Practical use

T-Fal Actifry  Low-Fat MultiCooker  and Fryer Product Review
Practicality and Ease of Use
It is rare for a product to actually live up to its statements- 1 spoon of oil they say The Tefal ActiFry Fryer  does. I was lost for words when it fried the lot with a spoon full of oil. This feature is unbelievably economical and our oil consumption has decreased vastly. As well as this we are not consuming the fat and literally using what we need, with just one spoon full it has become more economical to use higher quality extra virgin olive oils instead of vegetable oils. Not only does this dramatically change the flavour but is not bad for your body. Never would I have thought I would cook a healthy dessert in a frying device but the day has come the recommended cinnamon and apples went down a treat and did not lose its nutrition and flavour but remained wholesome and thoroughly enjoyable. It is a refreshing change to enjoy some of our favorite foods without the worry of fat content as well as disposing of masses of oil.


I think the time to wait for the chips is reasonable, I often leave the skins on and chuck them right in and go into the lounge kick back and read a book or listen to music and wait for the alarm. Another benefit is that you do not need to wait for the litres of oil to heat which can take forever so 35 minutes is not a long time.

Usability and Product Features
We also found the story of tefals origins story rather amusing with the fishing rod adjustments  :) Overall we are very pleased with this purchase, the delivery was prompt and efficient. We spent some time worried after reading certain reviews about numerous faulty models, we have had no trouble with faults but recognize the problem and are always aware especially with children and pets about. For a machine with so many functions it is incredibly easy to use and works logically rather than some of the obscure functions of other modern appliances. We have begun to use it for all sorts frozen veggie sausages in the morning, stir fry’s and fried rice. It has definitely become an economical and healthy move to convert to a more efficient appliance and to stop in my view wasting such a valuable resource as oil. With any modern gadget appliance you really have to think outside the box and use it for more than just frying chips.

Thank you for taking the time to read our Deep Fryer Review and we hope it was helpful,  we check prices regularly and have always found the best price at Amazon. They often sell out as quickly as the T-Fal Actifry Multi-Cooker Fryer as it  is a popular product. So if you see it in stock and at a good price it is worth grabbing, because they are generally the cheapest, so don’t think about it for too long if you see they have some in stock.
