SOURCE: Grill died
Contact these guys; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus 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 :)

try these guys for support or parts if you fancy trying youself; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus It does sound like the control board is the problem, and if you can get a replacement, they are a couple of connectors and a couple of screws to fix. Hope this helps :)

There is a small plate underneath the grill attached by three small screws. Remove that plate and you will see a small circuit board. You will probably notice that one of the resistors leaked (this looks like a AA battery that broke open). I have not been able to repair or replace this yet. If this is your issue than your probably out of luck.
Otherwise take a look around and see if any of the wires came apart. There are three pairs simply connected using a regular wire crimp. This can be repaired easily.

You clearly have a defective unit (not the kind of "hot" you want), and I'd recommend going to the customer service number below and getting a new unit. I've called them, it takes awhile to get through, but they did try to help. The automated phone attendant will also offer an email address you can use for priority service (24-hour response if I recall).
It shouldn't matter if you're in-warranty or not, what they sold you is downright hazardous. Call them on it. If they don't want to cooperate, see my note below.
And click on "George Foreman" (lower-right portion of the page), it redirects you to a secure webpage where you can register.
Part of the page reads:
"Call toll-free or visit our websites for assistance if you need more help.
Parts & Accessories:
Phone: 1-800-738-0245 (Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., ET)
Service: 1-800-231-9786 (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., ET)"
If for some reason they don't want to help, it's time to contact the consumer protection division of your state attorney-general's office and "light 'em up" (Salton, Inc) for putting out a defective (and potentially dangerous) product on the public.
If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions, please let me know before rating me.
If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

You've overloaded an internal fuse, or blown the heating element but it's not usually repairable. George would far prefer you to buy a whole new machine so that's how it's been designed, but you can thwart his money-grabbing plans by asking for one on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group.
There are millions of them sitting unused in the back of people's cabinets and although they might need a clean, the price is right. I've never had to pay for a George Foreman grilling machine.
