I just bought an Amerique 066 model and love it so far as today. I have it together and was getting ready to season it for the first cook tomorrow. I plugged it in to my 15 amp GFI garage circuit and it worked for a bit. Than it went for about 30 seconds and started tripping the GFI. I tried it direct without the heavy extension cord to no avail Than I tried a 10 amp circuit direct and it trips that. Both circuits will let it run for about 3 seconds and than they trip.
I than plugged in my 36" Cookshack charbroiler to the 15 amp circuit, on a 50 heavy extension cord and it runs perfect. All the fans and all the burners. I love that machine.
Anyone have any ideas. I know Cookshack will take care of me. Maybe I have to send the top controller back or the burner or both. Something is pulling some major amps. Unless there is some internal fuse that can prevent this but I doubt that would make sense. HELP! SOS! I want to use the Amerique tomorrow! Thanks
