Question about George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill

1 Answer

Broken at solder joints

I have a GRP90WGR bought only a few months ago. All of a sudden I find that one of the plates (that are the heating source and have etched on them "Hot Surface! Don't Touch") have come loose. There are 4 hex bolts holding it on and it looks like the plate melted slightly around two of the bolts. Are there options to replacing this plate? There are screws at the outer portion of the plate (the hot plate is a plate attached (by noted bolts) to another plate.

Re: Broken at solder joints

Hi hdoverby,

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). That said, I'm getting increasingly concerned about the number of problems being reported with these products.

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.

My G5 Grill will not turn on

I'm not sure, but there is probably a thermal fuse which has blown. These are very difficult to acquire and sometimes very difficult to install (they can't be soldered -- you have to use a crimp connector).

The fuse is about the size of small glass fuse and has a wire on either end of it and it's connected in line with the hot wire coming from the wall outlet.
