I have a CF75 quick connect on a fryer that quit allowing gas to flow through it. I am wondering if there is a piece missing that depresses the plunger when the hose is connected to the valve. I have replaced the valve with a standard ball valve for now and unit is working fine.

Hey a_roach, I took one of those apart at work today because of your post. I had to see for myself. Looking at Dormont’s website, they call that device their “Safety Quik Quick-Disconnect Valve”, as you probably knew.
Sure enough, it did NOT have that plastic insert (serving as a thermal shutoff) such as those we’re used to finding in the nipple of a basic quick-disconnect.
I’m guessing the thermal shutoff is incorporated into the valve body somehow. Dormont’s website and literature isn’t very helpful in that regard.
I’d recommend going back with a basic quick-disconnect (Dormont calls that their “SnapFast). That’s what we’re doing. They’re simpler, cheaper and easier to get apart. I had to use tools to persuade that Safety Quik valve apart. They don’t take grease buildup very well since the grease tends to begin resembling glue.

The nipple pushes a collar back against two plastic pins (melting safety) to open the female half. pin’s break inside. This is a very old post, but Ectofix has it right.
