Why does my Ninja Air Fryer Keep Shutting off? [6 REASONS & THE FIXES!]

Ninja air fryers are among the top-rated air fryers. A detailed comparison of the product can be referred to, on the basis of key important features.

Despite being a very reliable brand, there are certain issues that your Ninja air fryer may face as a result of mishandling, equipment fault, storage, rough usage, or inadequate upkeep.

Here in this 5 minutes read, you will find tried and tested solutions to the recurring issues forcing the Ninja air fryer to shut down.

6 Reasons & fixes why your Ninja air fryer keeps shutting off?

To curtail the shutting-off problem, we’ve categorized the issues based on dominant external factors & the equipment’s inherent issues which may be involved.

Experts from followed chronological order for the readers to try and fix the issue with the highest probability, moving on towards the least probable cause.

1. Inadequate Power supply

The difference in key electrical parameters of Power (Voltage, Current & Frequency) is the top most recurring issue that has led to the shutting down of Ninja air fryers.

The non-compatibility or variance in rated and actual values of the highlighted parameters causes air fryers to malfunction.

How to Resolve the non-compatibility problem?

In order to mitigate the power supply issues, our experts strongly recommend thoroughly reading the instructions, provided by the manufacturer in its user manual.

Check the supply Voltage, Current & Frequency that is available at your home, apartment, or kitchen. Then subsequently go through the user manual, for the machine’s power requirements.

Compare if the parameters are matching or you’ve discovered a discrepancy. In case there is a discrepancy, you need to contact the provider’s Sales and Services center and seek their help.

If there is a temporary fluctuation in the power supply parameters, contact a certified electrical technician and get the aforementioned issues fixed at once.

2. Loose terminations

The second highest probable cause affecting the operation of the Ninja air fryer is the loose terminations. The expression ‘loose terminations’ is a broad term and there are multiple factors involved that need a thorough scrutiny.

Either the socket that is being used is mismatching the plug & the difference in size is triggering the looseness issue.

Or the equipment has been roughly used which has caused the plug to get reshaped , that isn’t firmly held in the socket and the equipment turns off during operation as a result of lack of power supply.

Another reason could be the looseness in the power cable and internal connections of the air fryer due to rough usage.

How to resolve the loose terminations problem?

To resolve the loose termination issue, you need to inspect the plug and internal connections of the air fryer. Get it fixed by using a healthy plug or get the socket replaced.

Internal connections can be soldered & the loose connections will no longer persist.

3. Compromised Electrical Cable

This issue again rises due to the irregular usage of the air fryer and hence the power cable that supplies electricity to the device.

Power cables are identical to the veins in our bodies that need to be healthy, so the electricity demands aren’t compromised.

In either case, a pinched electrical cable, damaged, short-circuited wiring or bare portion can lead to power leakage and hence result in either causing irreversible damage to the Ninja Air fryer or seriously hurting the electronic circuitry of the product.

How to resolve the electrical cable problem?

It is highly recommended to use the air fryer as per OEM instructions and follow the guidelines to keep using the air fryer for a longer duration.

However if you, at any instance feel the cable has reshaped, insulation removed or rubbed & (or) sheared. Contact a good electrician, or services center or immediately get a correct rating cable and replace it as per the procedure.

This will definitely save your machine from a disaster.

4. Incorrect Timer setting

One prominent concern that the new users face with the Ninja air fryer frequently shutting off during normal operation is the lack of understanding or familiarization with the product’s user interface.

Ninja air fryers come with smart controlled digital timers, that enhance the buyer’s experience. However, there is a guideline that the supplier provides with each model of the air fryer.

This guideline clearly mentions how a timer on the Ninja Air Fryer can be set for a certain meal and the options of how long the air fryer must be operated.

These smart devices sometimes malfunction as well which needs to be resolved by contacting the supplier’s sales & services center.

5. Incorrect Temperature setting

This again arises due to a lack of knowledge of the air fryer or switching from an analog air fryer to a smart air fryer.

Temperature settings in the device can impact the operation of the Ninja air fryer if kept too low & the user might feel the Ninja air fryer is not operating or shutting down for some unknown reasons.

This can be avoided by following the manufacturer’s guidelines and the temperature ranges required by the air fryer to cook a certain dish.

6. Air fryer’s Inherent issues

There are a set of inherent issues that the air fryer may be subjected to that are causing the air fryer to turn off during normal operation.

One of those issues can be faulty or damaged components of the air fryer. You need to thoroughly check if the components of the air fryer are healthy.

You need to inspect the basket firmly held, in case there is a looseness due to rough usage or improper assembly; the air fryer may turn off after a certain period of time.

The internal circuitry of the air fryer again if affected due to abnormal conditions or as a result of the aging effect may lead to the intermittent shutting of the Ninja air fryer.

Summary of discussion:

Ninja produces state-of-the-art air fryers, however, it is up to the end user how well he or she uses the device and follows the user-provided instructions.

It has been noticed that the air fryer’s rough usage causes more problems than the equipment’s own inherent issues, that once faces over the course of air fryer operation.
