    Mine also broke off after only a few uses.  I tried to super glue it back together to no avail.  Anyone found where to purchase a repalcement knob?

    Mine also broke, rather it sort of crumbled. It looks like it can't take the heat generated by the grill. I just e-mailed them to see what they will do about it. It seems that many people have had the same trouble.

    Mine just broke too. I've been searching online but haven't find a replacement yet. Does anyone have any info yet?

    Same thing. My knob just fell apart. I'm trying to search online for a replacement but I'm afraid I'm out of luck.

    Mine broke also. I went back to where I bought it and they gave me a piece of paper and a phone number. I called this specailty place and asked if they could find me the part and they told me that they weren't able to help me. I have been looking for one too with no luck.

I contacted Sunbeam at (866) 588-1081. They are supposed to send a replacement timer knob in two weeks at no charge.

Rocket Grill knob free solution. Get a sharpie, and mark a verticle line over the knob shaft where zero is. Use a cheap screwdriver to set the timer. Keep old knob to put over the shaft to make it look pretty when not in use........ When and if you get a replacement knob, I would recomend getting some high strength wire that you can twist and tie around the blastic knob base and glue in place to add extra strength. G-Luck

Mine broke, as well. I called the number posted by bpadair (866) 588-1081), and, after several minutes, I was connected to a representative. She will send one out free, but you need to make sure you have the model number, as she's not sure the knob fits different models.

Mine broke too. I searched everywhere on the web and finally found one on Ebay. Seneca River Trading sells them. It was $7.45 including shipping. Hope this helps.

I also contacted Sunbeam. They acted like they never heard of this problem before. They sent me a new knob; with shipping it was about $18. It looks just like the old one and I suspect it will last about as long.

Mine also broke. Thanks to those above who provided the number, I called and spoke with the Sunbeam Rocket Grill folks. They said they will send a replacement free, "as a one-time courtesy". Wonder what happens if this one doesn't last any longer than the first one did... Anyway, glad to find this thread, and for the posters ahead of me!

    Mine also broke, and I called the number listed above also and was told that I could get a replacement for about $8 plus shipping, I had better order right now since they were no longer making parts for the RG 12. I declined, the screw driver and sharpie sounds like it will work just fine, and since they aren't made very well it just seems like a costly, temporary fix.

  • efuru Jan 26, 2011

    love my rocket grill, but got a busted knob too. found replacement part online for $17. will try the numbers to seek a free one. i'm old school. (i.e. wire hanger=tv antennae) in the meantime, i'm going with the screwdriver fix. glad i found this tread.

I have a sunbeam rocket grill model RG 24 is there a recipe book available?


Your product should have come with Sunbeam Rocket Grill Cookbook. If you bought the product new and the cookbook was missing from the box I would contact Sunbeam via their website.

There are some recipes posted on-line; see here.

The time knob on my Sunbeam Rocket grill stripped out. So I can't set the time. Is it possible to get a new knob?


I thought mine was stripped, but after pulling the plastic knob off, it was only the inside of the knob. I just use a screwdriver to adjust the timer until I can get the knob replaced.
