Grill Stopped Working

While using our Foreman Grill yesterday, it apparently got too hot and stopped working. We waited until it completely cooled down to see if a thermal fuse had blown. The grill still isn't working. I looked to see if there was a reset button, but found none. Anything we can do to fix it?

HI Jeff,

I would contact the manufacturer and get a manual if you haven't got one already. While you're at it, you should probably ask them for guidance on this - - I've seen other complaints, including one where the plastic on the plugwas actually melting, but have not been able to find any safetyrecalls, although evidently the manufacturer, Salton, Inc. is having abad year financially - - you might want to get ahold of them soonerthan later.

My george foreman grill will not power on


Check for power at the outlet where you plugged it in. Plug in a small lamp, if it doesn't light could be tripped breaker or blown fuse. I am assuming there is no switch for the outlet. With the lamp still plugged in and on plug in the grill and try to turn on. If the lamp goes off or dims noticeably, you have an electrical problem, contact your electrician. If the light does not dim and it does not get hot take to repair shop.

Unit costs too little to be repaired. Be sure to buy one with removable grills, they last tons longer.

Foreman gv5 grill just stoped working


There is a thermal fuse in series with the heating coils inside. You will have to disassemble it, find the fuse, take it to an electric supply house and get a replacement. Some soldering "may" be necessary.

HOW LONG DO I OOK HAMBURGER PATTIES USING THE GEORGE FOREMAN GRILLING MACHINE


I can do better than that here you go look at this.What have I personally prepared on my George Foreman grill?

Steaks
Hamburgers
Hot Dogs
Boneless Pork Loins
Country Style Ribs
Boneless Chicken Breast
Bone in Chicken Thighs
Bone in Chicken Breasts
Chicken Legs
Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwhiches
Italian Sausage along with Green Peppers and Onions

This unit has a floating hinge which allows me to cook thicker cuts of meat and they cook evenly.

I even use it to reheat the meat leftover from the day before, it heats them quickly and sears in the flavor without drying the meat out. I prefer reheating with my grill over microwaving.


One day last summer I was in the middle of cooking BBQ Chicken on my Charcoal Grill. We were having a family outing and out of the clear blue sky it just started to rain... Well I had no choice but to finish cooking all the chicken i had started on my handy little George Foreman grill. This took a little time because the amounts of chicken I had on the grill and could only fit just a few pieces at a time. but it was a lifesaver... saved our picnic. Which gave me the idea to precook the chicken on my George Foreman Grill then finish cooking it over Charcoal. I found using this method takes alot of time away from having to stand by the grill basting and turning. All in all, to me it seems that within 30 mins the Chicken is fully cooked compared to anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and your still guessing and cutting into the meat to see if its done.

The Champ also supplies you with some of his famous grilling recipes which I have not yet tried because I have my own way of seasoning my foods. Although they sound delicious!

Here are some examples of his suggested Cooking Chart for this Grill: Cooked Medium (160 F) to give you an Idea as to how quickly it does cook.


Salmon Filet 3 minutes
Salmon Steaks 6 minutes
White Fish 5 minutes
8 oz Turkey burgers 6 minutes
8 oz Hamburgers 9 minutes
Chicken Breasts 9 minutes
NY Strip Steak 7 minutes
Pork loins 5 minutes

Is there anything you found you didnt like?

Yes,one thing I must admit is I do not like is the fact it does not have a shut off switch.

I've learned that if you wait until the light on the unit is OFF then you are less likely to see a SPARK when you unplug the unit after use.

Back to the Positive and another important fact. Time to clean up is really a Breeze. I allow it to cool then I use the plastic spatula to scrap away any excess fat or food then I wipe with a damp paper towel. Toss away paper towel full of grease and grime and go over it a clean damp cloth, wash the tray and spatula and its ready to be put away.

Grill buzzing


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.

Foreman Grill GR36CB stopped working


Foreman grills have a fuse on the circuit board, have you popped that section open to visually check the fuse? It could be that simple. Fuses do wear down over time, so depending on how much wear and tear you put in, it could just have broken on its own.

Of course, if you replace the fuse and it still goes, you'll need to double-check to see what's shorting it out. The unit may be dead but I wouldn't bet on it.

The burner element is burned out. You can also check the overload fuse. You'll have to take it apart to do this.
