    How do I find my model number?



    • Manufacturer: Char-Broil
    Controller is rated 3.161290322580645 out of 5 by 31.
    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.

    does the grill need to be plugged in directly or can I use a heavy duty extention cord

    A 12 or 14 gauge extension cord of 50 ft or less can be used with this controller.
