    It wasn't the element or the overload fuse. But when we opened it up a wire was off. I don't think we would have opened it up other wise. Thanks

    I have a George Foreman grill model number GRP4PVT. I have owned it approx 4 months and have only used twice. It worked the first two times but when I tried to use it the other day it would not work. I plug it in and the "---" displays, I press the ON button and the "---" still display. It never goes to flashing "300" as the instruction book indicates it should. I had a smaller George Foreman that I used without problem for several years but purchased this one because the trays were removable and it was larger. Unfortunately I gave the small one to Good Will so now I am without a grill, and it appears may be out the $ as well since I did not save the receipt or warranty. (I am just not that organized plus I trusted it would work as well as the old one.)

    The bottom tray does not seem to fit in very securely. I see there is a small button that seems like it would indent when the bottom tray is inserted. Is that potentially the problem? Is there a reset button? The instruction booklet is not much help.

    Any suggestions for getting it to work or where I should go from here?

    Would I be able to purchase the burner element at a local retailer or do I have to order it?

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

Will not get hot, light does not come on. Only the timer is working.


Please as silly as it sounds check the fuse in the plug and check the cable for any possible breaks. The timer is mechanical on this so does not require power to work.

Smells hot and warped the top


Hi roanoke dave,

You clearly have a defective unit (not the kind of "hot" you want), and I'd recommend going to the customer service number below and getting a new unit. I've called them, it takes awhile to get through, but they did try to help. The automated phone attendant will also offer an email address you can use for priority service (24-hour response if I recall).

It shouldn't matter if you're in-warranty or not, what they sold you is downright hazardous. Call them on it. If they don't want to cooperate, see my note below.

If for some reason they don't want to help, it's time to contact the consumer protection division of your state attorney-general's office and "light 'em up" (Salton, Inc) for putting out a defective (and potentially dangerous) product on the public.
