The button simply overrides the thermocouple "safety feature". Holding it down will work, but most likely, the probe that sits close to the flame is not working correctly. I remember when I first got my turkey fryer, I had to play a bit with the placement of the probe until I got it to work correctly. Since then, the only other adjustment that I had to do was the taping of the timer knob so that it would not shut off automatically after 20 minutes.

Glad to hear you were able to find a functional work around for the stupid "safety feature".

Not to hijack the thread....Ok maybe I am. The only propane tanks I have will not attach to my turkey fryer. Yes they are old tanks and no I do not take them into town to fill but fill them myself off a 1000 gallon tank I have filled once a year.

Does this mean I am going to have to buy one of those silly durn new tanks.

Probably. I know everything switched over a few years ago.

I used to have a worthless "guage" that never worked right. The one thing it did to was work as an adapter between the "old" and the "new" style hook ups.

If you don't have one of those, when your tank is empty (or if you cannot wait that long), simply exchange it for a full one with the "new" type of hookup. Most employees don't even look at the tank you are bringing in. At the Menards store near me the entire process of tank echange is automated from a kiosk outside the store. Employees don't even get involved with the process.

I'm positive I have seen a brass adapter to make an "old style" tank hook up to a "newer" appliance. Without the screwy gauge or anything. Just brass with proper threads on each end.

I work for a propane company. We retrofit old tanks with the new valves for $17.00. Check with your local propane retailer.
