Question about George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill

1 Answer

Bottom of the grill cracked. Can I get a replacement bottom cover?

Used the grill a couple of times after receiving it(yes it was fine when I got it). I went to move the grill to a different location and noticed the bottom cover(red part) was cracked and the more I used it the worse it got. Now it's broken and the bottom(black part) won't even stay on. How do I get a new bottom cover?

Re: Bottom of the grill cracked. Can I get a replacement...

Hi fortune,

I'd contact the manufacturer (Salton, Inc.) customer service site for parts or manual. If they don't have them, they should know where to send you (though if they don't, I'd seriously wonder about the company).

Go to

And click on "George Foreman" (lower-right portion of the page), it redirects you to a secure webpage where you can register.

Part of the page reads:
"Call toll-free or visit our websites for assistance if you need more help.

Parts & Accessories:
Phone: 1-800-738-0245 (Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., ET)

Product Warranty:
Service: 1-800-231-9786 (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., ET)"

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using,

Does not heat not used but a couple times kind of dissappointed with it

These units get killed when cleaning. Next one get the removable grills. This is an excellent design grill, except the ones with non removable grills- due to short life.

Dissassembly George Foreman Champ Grill

On mine they are actually "Security Torx, Tamper-Resistant Torx (often shortened to Torx TR), or pin-in-Torx contains a post in the center of the head that prevents a standard Torx driver (or a straight screwdriver) from being inserted." quoted from Wikipedia.

Buy a security bit set or if you don't mind scratches try vise grip pliers on the outside of screw heads.

Bottom plate replacment

theres lots of posts here regarding george foreman products.
there does,nt seem to be anywhere to buy replacement parts.
I,d suggest buying a new alternative product, with a more stable background, and reliable service and replacement parts. i.e russel hobbs or tefal et,c.

Teflon finish is bubbling

unfortunately this is a common problem among these grills, your only option is to replace it unless you have an extended warranty... if you want to keep using it, you can use a scotchbrite or similar metal pad to get rid of most of the teflon coating. if you want to replace it because you love electric grilling and don't much like teflon flakes in your food, i would recommend that your next grill have stainless steel or cast iron grilling surfaces..

hope this helps,

Yes - go to this link: I'm almost considering just buying a whole new foreman since the replacement parts are not inexpensive.

Teflon finish is bubbling

first go to this link and see if they still stock the part (they still sell the grill so i think you should get lucky) If you need any help swapping them, please ask again. Hope this helps :)

With the unit unplugged, check the elements to see if one has become unseated. A gentle push should seat them. Some elements are plug in & can come unseated.
