Applianced shut off, most likely from over heating. How do I reset.

Appliance shut itself off do to being on too long I'm assuming and there is no reset button that I can find on the the exterior of this model. Is there one inside? Thank you in advance for any help provided.

Check the thermofuse in line with the red wire, it is most likely "open" resulting in no voltage getting to the heating elements. Replace if found defective.

When we plugged it in, light didn't go on and there was no heat.. what can i do?

It may sound basic, but make sure the outlet you are using is live. Plug in a known good appliance to make sure. If the outlet is good, check the cord closely for any cuts or breaks. From there likely you would need to open the case for further troubleshooting.

I have a George Foreman Grill Model GRP99 Series. When I plug it in the panel does not light up. It appears to be heating. I can not tell how hot it gets because the panel is not lite.

the indicator light doesn't have anything to do with how hot the grille gets,that is preset by an internal thermostat and the light just comes on when that temperature is reached, more than likely the miniature neon bulb that light is burnt out, any appliance repair shop can replace this bulb for you

The top piece is not heating up

If you feel confident opening the appliance (while disconnected from the mains of course!)

1. Check the internal cable between the bottom part of the unit and the top part. If this is damaged or tests to be open circuit, it will require replacing.

2. If the cable is OK, check the continuity on the heating element in the top half of the machine. If it is open circuit, then the element will require replacing.

Won't heat up

Thermostat control.
The only heat-producing piece on this model is the probe itself.

I'd say give the manufacturer (Cuisinart) a call. If you're under warranty, they can probably replace the probe for free. If you're out of warranty, you can purchas a probe (so either way, you're covered :))

Their phone number (according to their website, ) is 1 800 726 0190

Good luck! :)

I'm assuming you mean the power cord. Most of these units use standard power cords. Take it to an appliance parts store to match it. If you can't find the cord you want, extension cords called heavy duty are available. Be sure that the power draw on the label on the cord equals or exceeds that of the unit. Some cords use 'amps'...some appliances use watts. To get amps from watts: take the wattage, divide by volts (typically 120) to get amps. A 1200 watt appliance uses 10 amps. Use the next highest rating.

Thermal Fuse?

Under the bottom hot plate, remove the screws and open the grill, one of the wires has a heat protective sleeve on it and is held to the casing with a clip, the thermal fuse is under that sleeve, I contacted the manufacturer and they said it was not available as a spare part.

Burned wire in George Foreman indoor grill

Have you tried Home Depot? They actually have a pretty good wire section (at least mine does..).

Power cord

You can contact the manufacturer, the address is in the owner's manual. Check your local appliance parts store. Thrift stores often have appliance control & power cords, too. This is helpful for older units.

No power or anything - unit is dead

do this test for heating coil: connect a second ac supply cord directly to the coils wires. does it heat? if so, a fix is feasible. the problem is either the thermostat or a blown component on the board. neither are easy

These are the guys you need to talk to; it sounds like the control board is fried. easy to fix if you can get one - just swap. Hope this helps :)
