Grill Stopped working

I was cooking one day and thought the removable plates were on , but they weren't. I turned the grill off and put on the plates and tried to turn it back on, but to no avail. The grill hasn't worked since. Any ideas on what might be wrong and how to get it fixed?

Dear Mr. Terreri,

We distribute the Therm-O-Disc Micro Fuse in bulk with long lead on both ends. No special packing in Ceramic or Plastic are in our sales area. You can look at the catalog attached to see if you can identify the part number you require. G4A01XXXC is the start to look for.

Sincerely

Scott Irwin

The thermal fuse is actually under the bottom cooking plate - it is inline with the brown wire covered in the heat shielding. I just need now to figure out the size and rating

I took mine completely apart and there is no thermal fuse to be found. The only thing inside the small access door under the base is a splice using wiring nuts. Wish someone knew what the problem is with these things.

Open bottom cover, there is a themal fuse that needs to be bypassed or replace. You can pick one up at radio shack

For cleaning each of the cooking surfaces,do they release so they can be washed seperately.


Plates are not removable on this model. Having used several GF grills, I found that the easiest way to clean them was to clean the grates with a soapy towel as soon after cooking as possible; If it cools off the residue becomes solid and rather stuck-on. If you still have greasy residue, repeat cleaning with the soapy towel. (NOTE: Dawn soap works best; feel free to squirt it on to the grill and wipe clean, then rinse - it worked for me!)

How can i sear with my weber gas grill?


When you sear meat all you are doing is cooking the outside at high temperature so a caramelized crust forms. To do this on a gas grill turn all of your burners on high, close the top and let the grill get very hot, I usually shoot for around 400 to 450 degrees. When you put the meat on the grill do it fast, directly over the heat source and close the top to keep the heat up. You'll have to experiment but usually about a minute and a half to two minutes per side is all it takes. You want the meat to be thoroughly browned on the outside. Now turn the heat down or off on one side if your grill is set up for that, flip the meat and cook it slowly on the side of the grill that's turned off or over indirect heat to your desired done-ness. This will depend totally on the thickness of your meat, again experiment. Another important step is to let the meat stand for five to ten minutes after taking it off the grill. This keeps all the juices from running out of the meat the first time you cut into it and ending up on your plate.

My weber grill is not putting out enough heat--both burners ignite, but I can't turn them up to get a higher flame/higher temparature. The grill is about 5 years old. How can I clean the burners to get a...


Hello,

follow the below procedures on how to clean the burners for your grill:

Shut off the gas. It is very important that you turn off the gas valve to your BBQ before you can begin to clean it. This is found on the hose that attaches to your propane tank, simply turn the valve all the way to the right.
Escape any remaining gas. Next turn all the burner knobs to the highest setting and allow the remaining gas, if any, to escape. Make sure you have the grill hood in the open position before doing this.
Let the Grill vent for five minute: In order to ensure that the remaining propane has ventilated properly, leave your grill open and do not begin to clean it for at least five minutes.
Brush grill bars. Using your grill cleaning brush, firmly brush the surface of the grill bars in a forwards-backwards motion with the steel from the brush sweeping across the surface. Once you have brushed the surface flip each grill bar over and brush the other side.
Saturate with grill cleaner spray and repeat. Using your grill cleaner spray thoroughly saturate the surface of the grill bars and brush both sides. Set the grill bars aside after you finish so you can access the interior of the BBQ to clean it.
Remove burner plates and clean. All gas grills have metal plates which cover and protect the flame pilots during cooking. These will typically become covered with ash, and burnt grease and sauce over time. Simply remove them from the grill and brush them down. After you have brushed them once, saturate them with the cleaner spray and brush them down again. Set the plates aside so you can finish cleaning the rest of your grill.
Clean interior of grill. The plates will only catch so much, still sauce and grease will fall to the bottom of the grill and turn to ash. Using your grill brush, jar all of this ash free. Douse it in cleaner spray so it condenses and scoop it up with the paper towels.
Clean grease catch. Many newer gas grills will come with a grease catching plate. You can usually access these through the rear of the BBQ. They generally have a small metal handle and will easily slide out. Remove this grease catch, and brush and clean it thoroughly.
Clean exterior of grill. Using your grill cleaner spray, saturate the exterior of the grill and wipe it down with the paper towels. Repeat this process until the exterior is entirely clean.
Reassemble the grill. Now you can put all the pieces back together in your grill and turn the gas valve on again.
I hope the above helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

How do I get my panini maker clean again


From the Owners Manual:

Before cleaning, switch the grill off at the on/off button, switch off at the power outlet and unplug. Allow your Professional Grill to cool before cleaning. The appliance is easier to clean when slightly warm. Always clean your Professional Grill after each use to prevent a build up of baked-on foods. Wipe cooking plates with a soft cloth to remove food residue. For baked on food residue squeeze some warm water mixed with detergent over the food residue then clean with a non abrasive plastic scouring pad.

when it's hot lay wet paper towels on them.. no soap remove towels when they stop sizzle. Now just make them wet and sprinkle coarse salt on the grills and scrub with a short brissle wok brush.. the kind with the stiff bambo brissels... remember no soap to clean and no pam when you cook just oil and keep very very clean and it will never get dirty. you may have to keep grill on low untill ready to clean or reheat before cleaning.

Non-stick surface damage


Contact these guys and they should be able to supply replacement grill plates cheaply; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus In general the current view is that low quality aluminium alloys, when used for cooking can put enough aluminium into the food over a long period of time to POSSIBLY influence certain conditions such as alzheimers disease, amongst others. There is a certain amount of aluminium in many things we eat or drink, regardless of what it is cooked in. If you use the grill every day then i would recommend replacing the plates, especially if the aluminium itself is becoming pitted, however I have used similar, lower quality grills before with coating worn and haven't gone mad yet. If in any doubt then replace the plates, but i think you are being over cautious here. If you find that food is now sticking to the grill, try grilling half a handful of salt with a little vegetable oil for 10 minutes or so, spread over the whole plate - a certain amount of "non-stick" can be achieved like this, although if cleaning the plates with detergent, this will soon need doing again. Hope this helps :)

With the unit unplugged, check the elements to see if one has become unseated. A gentle push should seat them. Some elements are plug in & can come unseated.
