Indoor Electric Grill
« on: January 03, 2015, 08:55:11 AM »

Bought an indoor electric grill from Walmart, about $15. Worked great, perfect for my needs, certainly cheap enough. Now the problem: It has a thermometer control built into the electric line that plugs into the grill with a probe. In time the probe has developed a sloppy fit, electrically, and the grill shuts off. I can wiggle the probe and find a "hot spot" where it works and use something to prop it in place. Is there anything I can do to tighten up the probe fit and keep the electrons flowing?

Take it back to Walmart and request an exchange as "this one seems unsafe."  :)

Really though, it sounds like you have a loose connection. if you wanted to disassemble & resolder the connection in place it would be best, but then For $15 you can own a brand new one. It may not be worth the effort unless you like to tinker.
