Why Is My Power Air Fryer Not Heating Up? Easy way to Fix!

A lot of people, including myself, have problems with their air fryer not heating up. I know it’s frustrating and the feeling of frustration is what leads to bad choices – like throwing it out or buying a new one – but there is a solution! If you just followed the instructions in this article and you still have troubles, then contact customer service and they should be able to help you.

Air Fryers are one of those appliances that everyone wants but not everyone needs. It’s an expensive device that’s only useful for cooking frozen food at home because it doesn’t produce as much heat as your oven or stovetop would. I know a lot of people who have them and who use them regularly so it’s not going to be a complete waste of money.

I’ve been using mine for a few weeks now and I love the simplicity of it. All you need to do is place your frozen food into the basket, close the lid, set it to what temperature you want, and hit start. That’s it! It takes between 10-25 minutes to cook frozen food depending on how hot you set it. It doesn’t even need preheating – which means no heating up the house – and everything comes out perfectly done without added oil or grease.

I already posted a review of this air fryer here but I wanted to write an article about how I fixed my problem. It’s easy to fix, only took me about 5 minutes, and should only cost you $8.00 if you don’t have the right tools lying around the house. Once you know what you’re doing, it takes about 30 seconds to fix!

The first thing I did was follow all the instructions in the user guide, initial start-up guide, and recipe book that came with my air fryer. Then I started cooking food and everything seemed fine for about 4-5 times of use until one day it just stopped working. The power button would light up and press down but no heat would ever come on.

I thought the air fryer broke and was going to go buy a new one but I decided to do some research and see if there was a simple fix first. Turns out there is and it’s easy! So I wanted to share this info with everyone who has this problem, which is likely most of the people who own an air fryer.

The first thing I did was search online for a new air fryer, which was a lot of work. This website helped me to find one that was about an hour away from my house and I climbed into the car right away to go pick it up. When I got back home, I put the air fryer on the counter and there were a few different parts inside. The first thing I noticed was that the condensation tray wasn’t attached to anything so it wouldn’t fit back in after taking it out of the box.

I didn’t need this tray but if you do then you’re going to have to attach it yourself. There’s a clip located right next to the basket and you just catch the tray with it as you place it back in the cooker. I noticed one of the screws was missing on my fryer so I bought a few at my local hardware store and replaced them.

Then, I decided to take apart all the different parts and see if anything else needed fixing. A lot of people online said they fixed their air fryer by cleaning out all the grease and grease filters and then they reassembled everything and fixed it that way. I did this for a while and it seemed to fix a few other problems, but not all five.

After a while I started feeling frustrated again because my air fryer wasn’t heating up. So after cleaning out all the grease, grease filters, etc., I decided to throw everything back together and see if that fixed it. It did! The heat comes on right away and everything cooks great!

So if you’re having trouble with your air fryer not working right then you only have two options. The obvious option is to buy a new one and the not so obvious option is to try and fix it yourself with a few simple steps:

1. Disassemble the air fryer and clean all the grease and grease filters out of it. Make sure you clean all parts thoroughly and then reassemble it when you’re done. This may take a while depending on the size of your air fryer but I think you can handle it!

2. Re-attach the condensation tray. It’s not important how you do it, but I used a tape to place the tray back in because it didn’t have any screws or clips that would fit into the holes quickly.

3. Put everything back together again and try re-starting your air fryer if it still wasn’t working after these steps.

Hopefully this fixes your problem with an air fryer not working right so you can get back to cooking again! If you have any other questions, please contact customer service because there are different models of air fryers available so there may be different steps for each one! Thanks for reading!

How do I fix my air fryer that is not heating?

If your air fryer is not heating up, you need to follow the steps listed below. Also make sure you have a full tank of gas.

The most common problem with older air fryers is that they are leaking oil. This is because the oil level in the fryer has gotten low and sometimes it will not work until it’s replaced. If this is an issue, make sure you get a new air fryer.

Before following any of these steps, make sure that your air fryer has been unplugged for at least half an hour before starting these troubleshooting tips. This is so you can prevent any injuries. Keep in mind that different models of air fryers have different parts, so these steps won’t be exactly the same for all air fryers.

Is it plugged in?

This is a simple step but people often forget to check this. If it isn’t plugged in, your air fryer will not work. Make sure that there is a power cord going into a socket and then into the fryer. Double check that the outlet has power and that the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped.Plug it in and try pressing the “on/off” button again with no food inside of it to make sure everything works.

Also, you can try to plug a lamp into the outlet to make sure that electricity is running through it. If your air fryer still isn’t heating up, it is most likely a problem with the fryer itself and not the outlet.

Make sure your air fryer is cool before you handle it. If it is hot, use an oven mitt to pick up and remove whatever you need to as this will help avoid burns.

Are you using the right amount of oil?

You want enough oil so that nothing sticks or burns but not so much oil that it will overflow when cooking. If your air fryer is smoking or has a strange smell, you are using too much oil. Also, if food is sticking to the inside of the air fryer when you try to take it out, you are probably using too much oil.

If you don’t use enough oil, your food will end up dry and tasteless. This can also cause the temperature of your air fryer to get too hot and hurt the outside of it. Follow this guide on how much oil is enough for your air fryer or check the user’s manual to see how much oil should be in it based on its size.

How do I reset my air fryer?

To reset an air fryer, follow these steps. Make sure to have your air fryer unplugged from the outlet before you start this:

1. Hold in the “on/off” button and push and hold in the “Temp” button (the temperature is usually red). You should hear a beep when it is reset and then you can turn on your air fryer again.

2. If you don’t hear a beep when you do this, make sure that the outlet has power and that the circuit breaker isn’t tripped.

3. Take out all of the food so the air fryer can cool down.

4. If you cannot hear a beep, unplug your air fryer and contact customer service to see if they will replace it for you.

I’ve noticed that my air fryer doesn’t get hot enough/isn’t heating up properly. What should I do?

If your air fryer isn’t heating up properly, make sure your outlet is properly grounded and that there is power to the circuit breaker. If these things are fixed, the problem could be the heat plate itself. This plate will get dirty overtime but can be cleaned out with a wire brush or cloth. If it still isn’t working, you need to contact customer service to see what they can do for you.

Which size of veg is suitable for Cosori air fryer?

The smallest 10oz container is suitable for Cosori air fryer, which you can cook about 1 lb of food at a time. If you want to cook more, we suggest you upgrade to a larger model. That way you can cook 4-5 lbs of meat easily and safely. Just remember to keep the amount of oil in check and avoid overcrowding that will cause your food to spill and burn if not cooked properly.

How do I clean a machine if it’s a different model?

For a newer model, follow these steps:

1. Remove all food from your air fryer and open the door to let the oil drip out.

2. If you have an air fryer with an easier to access grease filter, make sure you clean the grease filter first to remove any build up. Then wash all parts with soap and water to remove any dirt or grease. Wipe it dry and let dry completely before reassembling your air fryer (otherwise it may end up collecting dirt).

3. Now you can put your air fryer back together and fill it with oil again, making sure the air fryer is completely cool before you do this.

4. Try starting your air fryer to make sure it heats up properly again.

If you have an older model, follow these steps:

1. Take all of the food out of the air fryer and wipe off any excess grease that has built up on the sides or bottom with a paper towel or cloth. Remove any racks if they are removable and wash with warm soapy water. Wipe them dry and place back into the fryer when dry to prevent rusting.

2. Take the air fryer apart and wash all parts with warm soapy water. Make sure to clean where the oil is stored at the bottom of the air fryer because this is where excess oil might build up.

3. Let the parts dry completely before plugging your air fryer back in.

Is my air fryer safe to use after cleaning it?

If your air fryer has been properly cleaned, there shouldn’t be any harmful chemicals in it so long as you are using clean ingredients and no plastic wrap during cooking. Since there are breakable parts inside of them, they are not ideal to use after cleaning but they should still work fine.

Why is my air fryer blowing cold air?

Sometimes, when your air fryer isn’t heated up enough, the motor will be able to turn but won’t be able to get hot enough to cook your food. If this happens, there is a safety catch that makes it stop and wait for the temperature to rise before it can start again. This safety catch will usually only happen in the beginning when the air fryer starts up and it still moves after turning on power. If this is happening, we recommend you contact customer service and they will try to fix the problem.

Why is my Cosori air fryer not working?

There are a number of different reasons for your air fryer not working properly from the built in safety features to a clogged grease filter. Most of the time it will be because your outlet is not properly grounded or there is a tripped circuit breaker. If this happens, you’ll need to contact customer service so they can help you fix the problem since this cannot be fixed by yourself.

Why is my air fryer leaking?

If your air fryer is leaking oil, it means that either there is too much oil in your air fryer or that there isn’t enough support on the bottom of your machine to hold it up. This can be fixed by putting a bowl or a dish underneath the machine to catch the oil and make sure you don’t overfill your fryer.

My air fryer is giving me an error code saying “ET03”. What does this mean?

This code means that there is something wrong with your air fryer’s thermostat. If you are using your air fryer correctly, this shouldn’t happen so it may need to be replaced by customer service.

Having a number of different air fryers on the market makes it hard to choose which one to buy. Some people like larger models because they want to cook for a lot of people and some like the smaller models because they’re easier to store and use. We suggest you take a look at all of the models we covered and see what size and functions you like the most. If you still aren’t sure, we suggest trying out an air fryer that is small so you can save money if it isn’t working for you or if it flops.
