how do I attach grill pan as the handle on the main pan is not detachable?
8 answers
Hello Paul, thank you for reaching out to us here. The grill pan can be used by putting it in the main basket after removing the detachable handle. The grill pan for this model is made separately, so we recommend checking the compatibility of this accessory with your model of AirFryer first. If you would like to know more about this, you can also reach out to our team by phone on the following number: 1300 363 391(Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST). We hope to hear from you soon. Kind regards, The Philips Australia TeamWell that does not help at all! I asked for help and you say "check compatibility" - you have my model number so you tell me what grill pan suits!Thanks for coming back to us, Paul. Upon having another look at our reply, we do agree that we could've looked into it for you, our apologies. We did check whether the grill pan is compatible with the HD9240/90, and it is not, unfortunately. So we're afraid the accessory cannot be attached to the basket, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Let us know if you have any further questions, we'd be happy to answer them! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Hi there, Thank you for reaching out to us about this. We're sorry to hear you've been experiencing issues with your Philips Airfryer. A device that stops in the middle of cooking is definitely not an ideal experience. We recommend that you take a look at these probable causes, which you can find here: https://www.philips.com.au/c-f/XC000003728/my-philips-airfryer-does-not-switch-on. If you find that these suggestions do not apply to your case, please contact our team on 1300 363 391 (Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST). They'd love to look into this for you, and get your Airfryer up and running once again! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

My air fryer has taken to switching off midway through cooking - with the error message ER flashing on the screen. Please advise why this is happening? I noticed that other people have been experiencing this issue but you haven't advised how best that it can be fixed. Therefore I'd be interested in suggestions. Thanks

Hi there, Claire, thank you for reaching out to us about this. We're sorry to hear your Air Fryer has been playing tricks on you, but we're here to help. Could you please make sure that you set the time after pre-heating and then press the start/pause button? If the start/pause button is fast double blinking, then it might be the case that you have forgotten to push the button. If the start/pause button blinks slowly, the process has been done correctly. However, do know that if the settings are not confirmed, the appliance switches off automatically for safety reasons. Do let us know if this helps! Alternatively, feel free to contact our product specialists on 1300 363 391 (Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST), as they'd be more than happy to investigate this for you further. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

I am using my airfryer for the first time. When I press the temperature button, it jumps from 360 to 390. The recipe I'm using calls for a temp of 370, but the fryer doesn't give me that option. What am I doing wrong?

I LOVE my aifryer however the draw seems to be slightly warped and does seal properly. This is my 2nd air fryer as the first one did the same. I had it replaced under warranty but don’t want to go back every 10 months for a new one. Have you heard of this issue before? It is Phillips XL in white

Hi, I have the hd9240/90 model. I just purchased it and on unpacking I accidentally closed the draw without the basket and handle on. Now I cannot open it. Can anyone help? Thanks very much
1 answer
Hi there, thanks for your question. If everything is alright, you should be able to open the draw by simply pulling it with your finger. It's not very inconvenient but you should be able to do this. We just gave it a shot ourselves here at the office and if you push your left hand against the appliance and pull the draw with your right hand then you should be fine. If this doesn't work, you can always reach out to us on Social Media (Facebook or Twitter) or you can reach us by phone on the following number 1300 363 391. Hope this helps.

Philips Avance XL Digital Airfryer purchased in Sep 2017 - used infrequently has decided it will not turn on. Any suggestions?

I have owned the philip avancence XL Airfryer for about 4 yrs and is starting to give problems. Sometimes it doesn’t switch on and sometimes it does. When it does switch on, it will shut down after a minute of it being on. Can you pls tell me what’s wrong with the airfryer and I thought it should have a longer lifespan as I don’t it very much. Anna

I am so sorry.Anna I have no idea as I haven't come accross this problem. Our family own 5 airfryers and haven't had this. Maybe ring Phillips and ask them if they could help. Customer Service are usually very good. My sister has had hers 6 years uses daily, still going strong. Good luck.Hi Anna. Thank you for your question. We're sorry to hear your Airfryer has been facing some issues, as we can imagine that comes quite unexpected. If you haven't done so already, we kindly ask you to get in contact with our customer support as we'd like to see if there's still anything we can do for you. Please find us on Twitter (@PhilipsCare), Facebook, or call us on 0800 658 224 (NZ) or 1300 363 391 (AU). We hope to hear from you. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.Your customer support has just given me the name of the repair shop I can send my airfryer to for evaluation who would charge me $30 for assessing what is the problem. All I want to know is whether it is a major problem and whether it is worth repairing. I don’t think I want to pay $30 for it and I might look at buying a different brand instead. (One of my friends had problems with her Philip Airfryer too and ended up getting rid of it).

Bought a brand new Phillips 9240. On the first use, the fan stopped working while cooking. Now, element comes on and heats up but no fan running. Any ideas?

Do you need to clean or replace a filter in the hd9240 air fryer model?

Hi there Ian, Thanks for your question regarding your Airfryer. There is no need to replace a filter. :) Would you let us know if you have additional questions? Take care! Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Hi , I own the Phillips Airfryer ( XL Black), have been using it from the past 3 years with no major issues. Last weekend it didn't turn at all. My husband tried and it started working again. I did one batch of food but when I tried the second batch it stopped again and didn't work at all after that. I think the issue is with the touch buttons. Pls advise how to fix it?
1 answer
Hi Eve, It's good you've found us here. Let's see how we can get you back to frying again. We're wondering if the basket still closes properly and nothing is jamming it. Furthermore, have you already tried taking the Airfryer of the electricity for 24 hours and then plugging it in a different power outlet? This might work. If not, we'd like to ask you to contact our colleagues from the product team on Facebook or Twitter. They will be more than happy to assist you further where possible. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Good Day, I am looking for a new air fryer, having bought my Phillips HD9240/90 XL digital in January 2016. It will not start, or sometimes it starts, but switches off in the midst of cooking. This is my 3rd one, both the previous ones gave the same problems and were exchanged/refunded without hesitation by Myer, whilst under warranty.( cudos to Myer). This one has lasted the longest though. I am now extremely frustrated with the poor quality of this product, which I am lost without. I loved it (when it worked); even though cleaning it is a pain- the dishwasher does not remove grease. There are other similar problems experienced by others on this forum. Can anyone advise what you did to rectify the issue?

I use bam degrease spray( with the green trigger top)generously and let sit for few mins before washing with no scratch scourer and baking paper is also helpful while cooking things like spring rolls and other greasy foods :)I have never had problems with this product since i bought. I always do hand wash and never put it in a dish washer. Soak with warm water and put some washing liquid then use sponge to get rid of grease:) my mum has a similler phillip air fryer but she also has no problems with it since she bought it early 2017.Hi there. Thank you for your question. It's not ideal your Airfryer stops mids cooking.
