    How do I find my model number?



    • Manufacturer: Char-Broil
    Element is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked for a while This worked for me for a while - probably 1 year and 1 day - just enough for the warranty to run out. It was blazing hot - seared steaks so the juices were locked in - great cooking temps etc., then, it started to wane down. Not so hot afterwards. When I came to this site to see how much a new part replacement would be I see where they make their money....I will go buy a new BBQ now -not necessarily a Char-Broil - but certainly not an infared.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The element solved the problem..!!! This is the second electric Patio Bistro Grill I've owned and I really love it...!!!! It wasn't heating up so I assumed it was the controller which I ordered, but still no heating....I did a live chat and learned that if the controller needs replacement, so does the heating element since they work together...Ordered the element and TA-DA...!!!!! Now I'm back to enjoying great grilling..!! Terrific customer service, and a great grill.. Would highly recommend it if you love to grill, but have limited outside space.....

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly returned I bought this replacement element because our electric grill (gift from children) had stopped working. Upon receipt of the element, I went to install it and return the grill to working condition. However upon disassembly, I found that the prior element and the thermostat/electric line were fused. Therefore, upon checking, the including the cost of the element, the new part required would have put the total price of the replacement parts--almost in the range of a totally new grill. Chose that option. Sadly my Patio Bistro is now not usable, and I'm not up for chasing good money after bad. (Only a year and a half old too!)

    Does Charbroil offer a 230 VAC model of it's Patio Bistro, or can a 230 VAC heating element be purchased to upgrade the 110 VAC product (for use overseas)?

    There is not an alternative heating element that can be used with the Electric Patio Bistro.

    This heating element only works with specific Patio Bistro models. This element does not work with any of our Patio Caddie Grills.
