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.

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.

Sounds like a possible "cold" solder joint on one of the circuit boards.
Majority of these intermittent problems is caused by either a broken solder joint and can be fixed if you inspect the different boards that
are present in your unit. Use a magnifier to help you find these "cold"
or "broken" solder joint(s). You will also need a soldering iron (~40W)
and some solder to reconnect/reflow these broken joint(s).

I bought the gun years ago and never used it. Now I need to solder my eyeglasses frame and have no idea ho to do it. How do I start? It's a dual 140/100 watt gun

Often the material used for eyeglass frames will NOT take solder.
If you want to try soldering you likely will need a flux that has zinc chloride. You should probably use a harder solder like StayBrite. You put some flux on the joint which needs to be held fixed while soldering. You heat the joint with the soldering tip and apply a little of the solder. One should "tin" or wet the tip before using by applying flux to the tip and melting a little solder on it. Search YouTube as someone probablly has a video on soldering.

You have a broken solder joint. You'll have to disassemble the amp enough to get at the soldered side of the circuit board that the controls are mounted to and touch up any suspect solder joints. Just be sure to resolder only the joints that were originally soldered or need to be soldered. Hope this helps.

This fault is not something you can repair your self.
It is a problem with the DFS module normally dry joints but it is near imposible to do without specialist equipment.
So definately take to repair shop.
Do not attempt this repair.
Sorry for being bearer of bad news.
