    How do I find my model number?



    • Manufacturer: Char-Broil
    Element is rated 4.2727272727272725 out of 5 by 33.
    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 You must replace the element with the controller My controller shorted out so I replaced.... but it was the element that caused the short so you have to replace both at the same time. I learned the hard way! Replacement is easy to do. One screw.... BUT keep the screw because they do not send new screws with the part.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will always have a Char-Broil grill I entered my model number, the heating element I needed popped up on the screen, I found it was reasonably priced, I ordered it and in less than one week, the steak-burgers were sizzling on my Char-Broil grill again!

    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.
