    How do I find my model number?



    • Manufacturer: Char-Broil
    Element is rated 4.173913043478261 out of 5 by 23.
    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 easy to replace! i love my electric grill! get's hot really fast, even distribution of heat a huge plus. i just had to replace my heating element because i use my grill several times a week and wore it out after several years of grilling all year long. it only took me a few minutes to do and i was back to grilling!

    will this element work on my Patio Caddie? I don't have the model number, the unit is approx 10 years old

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

    I have a Char Grill Bistro Patio. My element burned out. I can't find the model Number. How can I get a new element?

    Asked by: Petepoole
    To find the correct element we need the model number for your Patio Bistro. This model number should be on the rating label, on the back towards the bottom of the grill, and also on the front cover of the product guide. The model number normally begins with 46.

    Replaced the element because it broke. Now when we cook we cannot set the temp setting. No matter what we set it to (1-5) it heats up to the highest setting. Then it will not turn off. We have to unplug it.

    We're very sorry to hear this. Did this issue only start happening after the heating element was replaced? Please give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 and we will be able to best investigate this.
