The grill will not heat up- here’s the Letsfixit guide to show you how to fix it!!
REMOVE AND CHECK THE GRILL ELEMENT. This is usually held by a spring clip, and can usually be unhooked or unclipped, or in some cases a screwed clip.They usually then pull forward out of the ceramic socket. Check for corrosion or arcing on the 3 pins. If there has been bad contact between any pin and the socket, it will make the element fail prematurely due to excessive local heat build-up and oxidation. If the pins will clean up with emery cloth, try testing the resistance with a meter.
A 2500 WATT element should read about 20 to 25 OHMS across the outer two pins. If it reads open circuit (no reading), or higher than 100 OHMS then it should be replaced. If there is evidence of arcing, check the socket contacts with a good inspection lamp, and replace it if the contacts are very dark and burnt, otherwise a replacement element will fail again quite quickly. Note the burnt pin on the grill element, and the dramatically failed ceramic socket.
