Teflon finish is bubbling

We have a George Foreman -GRP99 grill and really enjoy it. It is 2 years old and the teflon finish on the top gill(cover) is now bubbling and we would like to know how to replace that part. The bottom shows NO signs of bubbling. Can you help> BeeJay I have the large stand indoor/outdoor George Foreman grill. It is not quite 2 years old and the teflon finish is bubbling. Is this covered by warranty at all? It was a gift I a know that I have tossed all the paper work. If I kept all that stuff for everything I would need to rent a storage facility to keep it all.

    My George Foreman grill has the Teflon flaking off and is very difficult to clean. While trying to clean the grill with a cloth the Teflon comes off.

    thats it!! i am not buying another one! have had 3 and the finish has bubbled off every one. i like the ease of cooking on this, and it is small on my deck, not like the big ugly gas grills, but i won't spend the money again. George you should be ashamed of yourself. stand behind your product!

    Don't blame George Foreman.  I've had the same thing happen with the George and also with the Cuisinart Grillerie and the Breville.  I finally bought a cast iron from Wolfgang Puck, but the on/off switch broke after about 6 months.  After they told us to cut the power plug off and send it to them so they could replace the unit, they called to say the grills were out of stock and it was unknown when or if they would get any.  I'm currently searching for the part to repair the Puck (it's made by Waring).  Beware that the cast iron is REALLY hard to clean...

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,

I have a problem with my George Foreman grill, model GLP80V. I purchased this a few months ago and the finish is coming off the majority part of the grill. I have been very careful with how I wash it so I...

There is a 2 year warranty on those. Otherwise nothing can be done. Teflon cannot be repaired of applied without special tools and processes. Hint: Check 2nd hand stores for other grills and they are not expensive, then you have spare parts!

I have a George Foreman Grill Model GRP99 Series. When I plug it in the panel does not light up. It appears to be heating. I can not tell how hot it gets because the panel is not lite.

the indicator light doesn't have anything to do with how hot the grille gets,that is preset by an internal thermostat and the light just comes on when that temperature is reached, more than likely the miniature neon bulb that light is burnt out, any appliance repair shop can replace this bulb for you

Can nonstick surface be replaced, how and what

I wouldn't suggest spray on Teflon - even if it can withstand high temperatures, in prolonged use the Teflon Spray you can buy isn't really supposed to be used for food prep. If the grill still works okay then keep the grill; prices of George Foreman grills have fallen due to Russell Hobbs who have brought out larger grills for the same cost.

Handles fell off

I have a Foreman GRP99 that has a broken Grill Plate Handle.
I called 1-800-233-9054, Fox-International, and ordered a new handle for $14.95 including Shipping.
Maybe they have support advice?

Unfortunately it sounds like your control board has fried. Also unfortunately the warranty is only for a year, however control board replacement should be easy and cheap enough - contact these guys for details; The only reset is to unplug and plug back in again. Hope this helps :)
