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.

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.

Amana #srd2555w bought from a friend in working condition. 3 yrs old brought home on its side. vacumed coils working 3 days then stopped cooling in fridge followed by ice build up and not working in...


You have a defrost problem. 3 parts: Timer (or "adaptive defrost control"), defrost heater and def. termination thermostat.Find the timer, it shoud be nehind the bottom front grille to the right on Amana (if you see a blck box under there with a sticker on it, it's the ADC model) turn the timer CW until it clicks. Take the back off the bottom of the freezer and listen. After 5-10 minutes if you hear the sound of the sound of water hitting a hot grill. If you hear this the heater and thermo are working and the problem is the timer/ADC. No hiss? Unplug fridge. Check thermo and heater for continuity. Replace the one that's open. If the heater's open, replace the thermo too: Maybe it didn't open soon emouhg and caused heater failure.

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.

Model 10042


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