    Was a gift, did not use right away but when I did nothing happens when I plug it in ,no return item.

    I was cooking chicken last night and the next thing I know the lights are all off. I pressed the power button, timer button, temp. button, and checked that outlet. George seems to have died. I have read that if it overheats it could take 10-15 minutes of cooling to reset the "brain". After 10 hours of cooling, it still doesn't power on. Ideas?

    When I plug in the grill, the display remains blank and I get no heat to the plates. Nothing.... It's dead.

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.

Flashing green indicator lights

When the green light is flashing, it is not at the set temperature. It will be solid when temperature is correct. You are selecting grill or griddle and then turning the temperature knob for that selection? It's not working with either selected?

Put a turkey in the big george and the wing hit the heat bar there was a crack not loud and now it will not turn on. when I plug it in three 000 come up but it wont turn on no red power light or motor...

You may have blown a fuse. they have one on the in side of the unit. But if its brand new dont try it your self this will invalidate your warrentee. but if its older try it you self by takeing out the screws and remove the cover. Unpluged of corse. Near the power cord and what have you in side you should find a fuse. replace it. Good luck DFD Please rate me TKU

Display says CL and ERR and beeps continually?

The same thing is happening to my model and I called the 18009373883 and there is only a one year warranty on it, so if a year has passed your out of luck. If you have a valid receipt then they will give you directions on how to send it in for repairs. Sorry.

Stuck Grill plates

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.
