Question about Cuisinart GR-4 Griddler

3 Answers

Stuck Grill plates

I accidentally put the lower plate on the upper section and now can't get it to come off. I've tried pushing the button and tugging and wiggling, but nothing. No troubleshooting in their manual to help me. It's the Cuisinart Griddler Gourmet GRID-8 Series.

    We have done the same thing and have the same problem. Were you able to fix yours? Does anyone have any ideas?

    I am having the same problem and don't want to break it getting the grill plate off.  

  • diwhy Mar 16, 2008

    Help! We cannot get the lower plate off, because it is supposed to be on the upper half. We've tried to unjam the lock with a knife, but it just won't budge. So frustrating!

    I just contacted the cust. service dept. at Cuisinart. I'm awaiting their solution, or advice as where to send it for repair. I too, jamed the lower to the upper grill location....dumb!

What happens is that the upper post (see the back of the plates; there's a quarter inch wide post) slides into a slot not designed for it (too small). To fix, find the post. Slide a table knife in between the plate and the griddler, and twist. This should un-jam the post and free the plate.

Thanks Salexa4 ! you saved me. The key is the post he describes, and inserting the knife just to one side of it. A bit of a twist, and voila!

Amazing, Salexa4!!! This is exactly what I needed! I was getting desperate. And the tip from pmbCT is really what helped me finish the job! I kept thinking that the jam's source was at the base of the plate (where the two metal brackets are), but reading about the post, I understood the jam was happening closer to the top of the plate (in open position)!
Thanks a bunch :)

Drivers side front tire wiggles in and out if you grab onto the top of the tire and push it in and pull out?


replace your control arms (upper)...if it wiggles in and out from north and south, this can cause uneven wear on your tires. ur upper and possibly your lower control arms should fix this.

My 1999 f250 brake lights do not work, but the turn signals do, and the tail lights do too, I put in a new brake light switch but there does not seem to be any power coming out of the switch


take the hazard button and tug and wiggle it real hard when pushing the brake pedal, if they start flickering, you will need a turn signal switch replaced.

I think you are referring to "rocker boxes" on your Sporty. Replace the rubber gaskets between the lower plate and the upper plate. If the lower plate is leaking, you will have to remove the lower plate with the rocker arms and the push rods.
