    Same problem, tried changing outlets and re-setting circuit breaker for the outlet. No luck. Customer service hotline was closed (holiday weekend). This thing is an expensive POS.

    Any ideas out there?

    I have the same problem! We just got our grill and the timer shows "no" and the temperature says "AC". the grill seemed to preheat okay, but when we tried to set the temperature, we encountered the problem. any help would be much appreciated!!!

    After lots of use on earlier occasions, the grill just started beeping with a "no" on the left indicator light and an "AC" on the right indicator as soon as it was plugged in. It does not seem to heat up either. Problem keeps repeating after unplugging and replugging the unit into electric outlet(s), even on the next day.

Hi wi11iam5,

I'd contact the manufacturer (Salton, Inc.) customer service site for parts or manual, or warranty support. 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). Based upon the other folks who responded "me too", this isn't an isolated problem.

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)

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,

Grill plates closed and wont open back up

Turn the timer back on for about 2 minutes. When it's through, the grill should open back up.

Broke after only about ten uses.

It is a cheap knob. It retails for $1.04.

Everything you described is normal, except not heating up.
When you first plug it in, you will see 'dashes' that tell you it is getting power.
When you press the Power Button, the grill will start at the Default Temp of 300F and the Timer starts at 5 minutes. You now change the temp to what you want.
It takes 5 minutes to get your grill to your tempreature, so the timer should 'count-down' as the grill heats up.
As for not heating up, I think you will need to get that 'looked at' for repairs.

Display says CL and ERR and beeps continually?

The same thing is happening to my model and I called the 18009373883 and there is only a one year warranty on it, so if a year has passed your out of luck. If you have a valid receipt then they will give you directions on how to send it in for repairs. Sorry.

No power or anything - unit is dead

do this test for heating coil: connect a second ac supply cord directly to the coils wires. does it heat? if so, a fix is feasible. the problem is either the thermostat or a blown component on the board. neither are easy

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 :)
