I’m sorry, I cannot diagnose what may be wrong with your air fryer without more information. Can you please provide more details on what issues you are experiencing?

Some common issues that people experience with air fryers include:

Uneven cooking

Air fryers may not always cook food evenly, leading to some parts being overcooked while others are undercooked.

Smoke or burning smell

If you notice smoke or a burning smell coming from your air fryer, it could be due to excess oil or food particles in the fryer, or it could indicate a problem with the heating element.

Non-stick coating peeling

The non-stick coating on the basket or tray of the air fryer can start to peel after prolonged use, which can be a health concern.

Malfunctioning parts

Sometimes, parts of an air fryer can break or malfunction, such as the heating element, fan, or digital control panel.

Food sticking to basket or tray

If food is sticking to the basket or tray, it could be due to the lack of oil or cooking spray or not shaking the basket/tray enough during cooking.


If you are experiencing any of these issues or other problems with your air fryer, it may be best to consult the user manual or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
