I plug it in and it is doing nothing.  It will not heat up at all and I have tried various outlets.

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.

Keep trying to plug my Masterbuit 30"electric smoker into a outlet in my camper. It will heat up for about 3-5 minutes then trips a breaker and shuts off. Tried mutiple outlets with the same result.

If you are hooked up to 120vac, either the you have a problem with the smokers heating element or it puts out more amps than your breakers are able to hold. If you are using 12vdc then you are definitely trying to use more amps than the system can handle. Make sure their is nothing else pulling power from the outlet you are trying to use.

Wrong outlet

You've overloaded an internal fuse, or blown the heating element but it's not usually repairable. George would far prefer you to buy a whole new machine so that's how it's been designed, but you can thwart his money-grabbing plans by asking for one on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group.

There are millions of them sitting unused in the back of people's cabinets and although they might need a clean, the price is right. I've never had to pay for a George Foreman grilling machine.
