Grill won't turn on when plugged in

Hi, My Foreman grill will no longer heat up when plugged in. The connection and outlet are working, the grill simply doesn't activate when power connection is made. There is no sound of the grill preheating, or any sign of activity. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Try these guys for support or parts if you fancy trying youself; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus It does sound like the control board is the problem, and if you can get a replacement, they are a couple of connectors and a couple of screws to fix. Hope this helps :)

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.

My george Foreman grill will not heat up.. it worked yesterday.... the timer works fine... can this be fixed?

Unit costs too little to be repaired. Be sure to buy one with removable grills, they last tons longer.

Wrong outlet

You've overloaded an internal fuse, or blown the heating element but it's not usually repairable. George would far prefer you to buy a whole new machine so that's how it's been designed, but you can thwart his money-grabbing plans by asking for one on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group.

There are millions of them sitting unused in the back of people's cabinets and although they might need a clean, the price is right. I've never had to pay for a George Foreman grilling machine.

Foreman gv5 grill just stoped working

There is a thermal fuse in series with the heating coils inside. You will have to disassemble it, find the fuse, take it to an electric supply house and get a replacement. Some soldering "may" be necessary.

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.

George Foreman indoor G5 grill

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.
