Question about George Foreman GR10AWHT Indoor Grill

1 Answer

Hot plug Each time I unplug the grill (one of the older small ones, no on/off switch) I notice that the plug is quite hot. Is this to be expected, or is it a safety concern. All my kitchen sockets are I guess what one would call ungrounded, not 3-pronged or appearing to have replaced (at least the covers) in a long time. I keep forgetting to feel the cord to see if it heats up as well. The longest time I've ever grilled anything is 5 minutes, usually 4 (then there's the original pre-heat time as well). Thanks for your help. I hope it's ok...i'd starve without my little grill.

    My grill's plug gets hot too and I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't used my grill because the hot plug is making me nervous.

    I have the exact same problem.  I actually burned my finger unplugging the device.

Hello xavatea,

If it's too hot to handle comfortably, I'd contact the manufacturer, especially if it's still under warranty.
I've seen other complaints, including one where the plastic on the plug was actually melting, but have not been able to find any safety recalls, although evidently the manufacturer, Salton, Inc. is having a bad year financially - - you might want to get ahold of them sooner than later.

My george foreman grill will not power on


Check for power at the outlet where you plugged it in. Plug in a small lamp, if it doesn't light could be tripped breaker or blown fuse. I am assuming there is no switch for the outlet. With the lamp still plugged in and on plug in the grill and try to turn on. If the lamp goes off or dims noticeably, you have an electrical problem, contact your electrician. If the light does not dim and it does not get hot take to repair shop.

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

Cooking Time fr Chicken breast


a lot depends on the thiknesss of the breast. But if the grill is hot say 200C an average time is about 3 minutes per side. To test do a small cut obliquely to ensure it is white all the way through.

Grill problems


I would advise not to use the grill or the plug it plugs into before determining what the problem is. It could be the grill cord, or the wall plug.

If you have been in the habit of pulling the cord plug out of the wall by tugging on the cord, then chances are the problem is broken conductors inside of the wire insulation. One way to test this is to attempt plugging the unit into a totally different wall outlet. If the cord and outlet heat up again, chances are the cord needs to be replaced (if possible). If the both do not heat up, then the outlet wiring connections inside of the wall need to be checked.

Bad wiring connections either in the wall, or in the cord, will generate heat, when will then conduct to the other connector. So it is difficult to use heat as the indicator of which connector is bad.

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.

With the unit unplugged, check the elements to see if one has become unseated. A gentle push should seat them. Some elements are plug in & can come unseated.

If you can access the electrical connections, ths should be an easy fix. If this has a temp setting or switch, it could be a loose connection at that control, or a loose connection at the heating element. for some reason, you're not getting power to the element.
