I was using this grill to make supper tonight when it stopped working. The red light went off, which I know it will when it reaches the set temperature (though I don't recall this ever happening when I used it previously). It did not keep a consistent temperature after this point--all power was lost. I checked the electrical outlet and verified that it was functioning. I then let the grill cool down and attempted to turn it on again, but it did not power up again. I checked the cord for signs of damage but found none, and cannot see anything on the outside of the grill that would indicate any trouble. Any suggestions you could offer would be appreciated!

The grill is not heating because the heating element of the grill is either defective, or there is a disconnection of wires connected to the heating element. Heat coming from the grill can melt the wire if it is close to it. But if problem is not from the wire, then the heating element is defective and needs replacement.
First, have the wires checked to make sure it's not disconnected. Also, check other parts to make sure there are intact.
Get a screw driver, disassemble the grill, check the wires connected to the heating element. If wires are intact, then you need to replace the heating element.
If you cannot perform the above task, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a family or friend that has the ability to help you out. I wish you the best of luck.
Don't know if this helps but Radio Shack has Microtemp 10 amp G4A00 Tf 144c (144 deg Celcius) Thermal Fuses. These are the ones with the little red conical end on them. Under $2 each. I needed one to put in my toaster oven. Couldn't find the small metal clips to attach it to the wiring though. Since it is very diffucult to solder these without damaging the fuse, I'll have to recycle the old clips.
No, a buzzing noise merely means that something is vibrating from the magnetic field that is created when power flows through the heating elements. As long as nothing is obviously loose, the grill is safe to use.
I took the section of the grill that wasn't heating apart, in this case the bottom part, and I discovered the wire had simply come loose from the connector. I put the wire back on and tightened it now it works great.
Contact these guys;
and they should be able to give you a repair centre list - i think you are right about the board - if you can post again with the board number we can try to source it seperately
Hope this helps :)
