Question about George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill
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?
I found the thermal fuse failed. Here is info from the company. See my e-mail at the bottom where I got the info off of the failed piece. Norm

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.

The part MICROTEMP,SRMBGD---G4A00, RU TF 240 C has failed on my electric grill. Do you have a replacement or upgraded part. Thanks, Norm

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

I am having this exact same problem. Did you ever get yours taken care of? I was going to take mine apart and look for a fuse...
