I have a gas grill with a side burner and three burners to grill with. When I turn on the propane then light the burners, the flame is tiny...and the regulator ices up looks like freon on a car air...

The newer jugs have a safety device that is wank. Remove the connection to the jug and open all valves to clear out any pressure. Close all valves and slowly open the jug a tiny bit and retry.

Missing a tray (1) - new purchase

Return it to Target ASAP; not only is the mfr. going to be unwilling to just send you a tray, but the item was proabably made in China and parts may not even be available in the US. In my experience, Target plays fairer than most at making things right.

Gas grill regulator freezing

I do not understand the term " regulator and gas line from the regulator ice up" Do you mean ice up as in frozen water? I do not know where the water would come from. Is there a drip leg on your gas piping? A drip leg is pipe nipple placed before the appliance.

George Foreman Grill

Thanks for your response.... I called the telephone number listed on the warranty and they advised me to take the grill back to where I had purchased it...if I didn't get any satisfaction there to call them back again and go from there...they would have me mail it back to them... Well, I took it back to where I purchased it and they took it I am OK... I did get another grill but a larger one. I have already used the new one and it is just what I wanted.... Needless to say the box was also in better shape...

Thanks again

George Foreman Energy Efficiency

Well, a good rule of thumb is if you use Electricity to change the temperature of something, it will use more electricity than say a light bulb, monitor, tv, radio etc.
Some Energy Hogging items are things like:
Microwave oven converts electricity to Heat things.
A/C unit, converts electricity to Cool
Toaster, hair dryer, Electric grills, electric heaters, etc.

The easiest thing to do, is to look at the bottom of the Grill, and look for the Watt usage. IM pretty sure it will be close if not over 1000 Watts. I have a small GF grill and it is rated at 750 Watts.
To give you an idea of how much electricity it is using, thing of a 100 watt light bulb and compare the grill to that.
If the grill uses 1000W, then it is like leaving on TEN 100 Watt light bulbs for the length of time you leave the grill plugged in.
The key thing would be to make sure you unplug the unit as soon as you are done. Leaving it plugged in and running for say another 5-10 minutes while you take your food to the table, will use that much more electricity.

I hope this helps.
If I have answered your question, please remember to leave a feedback and a rating for me.
Thanks and good luck.
Mac =)
