This might be the most frustrating thing ever, not being able to turn on your air fryer. And it’s always happening to you, too. It doesn’t matter if you bought a brand new one or borrowed it from a friend who also hates theirs: they’re not working correctly and no one knows why. We can help! Just follow these simple steps and we’ll tell you how to get your Chefman Air Fryer up and running again.
Let’s begin with the first step: turn off all other appliances that may be plugged into the power strip before continuing with this troubleshooting process.
Step 1: Remove the power cord from the air fryer. This can be difficult because the air fryer is heavy and usually sits on a counter top rather than on the floor. If you are unable to remove it, or it seems as if it’s stuck or broken, try another outlet.
Step 2: Check whether there is a green light coming from one end of the power cord that has been unplugged. If you see a green light, go to Step 3. If there no green light, refer to our next step.
Step 3: Check whether there is any power coming out of one end of the power cord that has been unplugged. If there is, go to Step 4.
Step 4: Look for the fuse inside the air fryer. There are two different ones, depending on which type you bought.
Step 5: Find and remove the fuse from the power cord. If your air fryer was purchased in the last few years, you should be able to remove it without much trouble. If you are lucky, the fuse is located on the outside of the cord and will be easy to access.
Step 6: Plug your air fryer back in and test it again. If it still does not work, move on to Step 8.
Step 7: Check whether there is an orange light coming from one end of the power cord that has been unplugged. If you see an orange light, go to
Step 8. If there no orange light, refer to our next step.
Step 9: Check whether there is any power coming out of one end of the power cord that has been unplugged. If there is, go to Step 10.
Step 10: Look for a reset button on the Fryer. The button will be located on the air fryer circuit board and should be a small square with a hole in it. This square will have either an orange or blue wire sticking through it.
Step 11: Insert an unfolded paperclip into this hole for about 15 seconds. If the machine is not working properly, there may be a short that needs to be reset. Once the paperclip is removed, you can plug it in and test it again.
If you’ve tried all of these steps and your Chefman Air Fryer still doesn’t work, it’s time to call the customer service number located in the owner’s manual for further instruction.
How do you fix an air fryer that won’t turn on?
Some air fryers have a reset button on the circuit board. Others may require a paperclip to be inserted into the hole in order to reset. If you need further instruction or help, please call customer service for further instructions. Your cleaning instructions will also be located in your owner’s manual for your Chefman Air Fryer.
What are other possible problems with my air fryer?
First, check the rest of the appliance to be sure there is no power going to it. If you have another appliance plugged into that outlet, unplug it before attempting to power up your air fryer again.
If the outlet is working, then you may want to check your fuses. If you have a two-pronged plug and you see a green light coming from the power cord, and yet it still won’t power up, you may have a bad fuse. You may also need to replace the fuse if there is no light, or if there is an orange light coming from the power cord.
How do you reset an air fryer?
If you have an air fryer that will not power on, you may want to check to see if there is a reset button on the circuit board. If there is one, use the paperclip technique to find it and push it at least 10 times in rapid succession. This may bring the appliance back to life.
Before buying a new air fryer, check with your local consumer electronics retailer for a warranty on this type of product. If the warranty has expired, contact Chefman customer service for further instructions.
A simple and effective way of troubleshooting a non-working Chefman Air Fryer is to complete each step with the air fryer turned off. The following may also help:
Check that the power outlet is working by plugging in an appliance or lamp to it and seeing if it powers on. If not, try a different outlet. If this does not work, there may be a problem with the fuse. Check to see if there is power going out of one end of the power cord that has been unplugged. If so, the air fryer will not work correctly until the fuse is replaced or reset. Look for an orange light coming from one end of the cord that has been unplugged.
How do you fix a broken air fryer?
You may be able to replace the parts of your air fryer that has broken. There are various components inside the air fryer and it is important to identify which one is broken before ordering a new one. If you are not sure, you can always call customer service for further instructions.
How do you turn on a Chefman Airfryer?
It is important to follow the air fryers instructions. You first need to plug in both cords into a socket outlet. The second cord is usually plugged into your air fryer’s side. Once plugged in, look for a red light on your air fryer that may be blinking or solid. This indicates that you have power going to your air fryer. Now, turn on the dial located inside your air fryer in order to switch it from a warming mode to an operation mode. If there is no indicator light, please check the instruction manual for further assistance.
Since Chefman has made the air fryer, there have been a number of problems with the product, some of which have been addressed and some that have not. It is important to remember that since this device is new, there will naturally be a few bugs in it. When purchasing an air fryer, make sure to check the warranty. This can be found in your instruction manual. When you bought your air fryer, it came with a warranty that provided you with something like 90 days of free service from the manufacturer. If you do experience any issues within this period and are unable to resolve them on your own, contact customer service for further instructions.
