Re: 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

I open the box and plug the unit into any outlet, the outlet's circuit breaker pop-off within a minute. I turned the knob to off position before plugging into outlet, and the circuit breaker still pop...

There is something wrong with the unit, it should not trip the breaker.
You are going to have to send it back.

I tried to see how many amps the unit draws, but there website is poor
and I don't even see a way to get the manual if you needed one.

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.

There is a small plate underneath the grill attached by three small screws. Remove that plate and you will see a small circuit board. You will probably notice that one of the resistors leaked (this looks like a AA battery that broke open). I have not been able to repair or replace this yet. If this is your issue than your probably out of luck.
Otherwise take a look around and see if any of the wires came apart. There are three pairs simply connected using a regular wire crimp. This can be repaired easily.

Check to make sure the 'up' button is not stuck. There is nothing more you can do, as there are no user serviceable parts in this unit, & the problem is either a stuck button, or a faulty timer module.

Unfortunately it sounds like your control board has fried. Also unfortunately the warranty is only for a year, however control board replacement should be easy and cheap enough - contact these guys for details; The only reset is to unplug and plug back in again. Hope this helps :)
