    • Manufacturer: Char-Broil
    Controller is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Char-Broil Electric Grill This is my second one and I love the grill. However on both Grills the controller shorted out after one year of use. The replacement part (29101991) is $50 while an entire new Grill is $135. The part cost is too expensive at $50. I don't think I will be buying a third Grill.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable controller We have had this grill for just a little over 2 years. The first controller stopped controlling and only operated at max heat in less than 1 month. We received a replacement which worked for about 2 weeks then only worked at max heat. So that is how we used it until it stopped working completely after about a year. So we went back to the first one and operated it at max heat until it failed about a week ago. The grill has always been covered or inside when not in use. I am not about to spend $50 for another one.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Controller It is good, I have only had it for three years and the contoller is not working. The part cost almost as much as the BBQ!

    I need more than 5 feet to reach my closest power outlet, can I use an extension cord? If so, what type?
