Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Wow, I never would have imagined buying a Camp Chef Grill could take so much of your time away from family and from cooking for which it was designed to do! Essentially when you own a Camp Chef Grill you are going to work for them as an employee if you want to keep your grill in working condition thru the warranty period.
My personal experience buying a Camp Chef grill thru and fixing over 10 parts on it breaking down multiple times a year is below.
First Camp Chef DLX Smoker Pro arrived partially damaged so I could not use it until Camp Chef sent replacement parts to finish assembly. Strike one!
Second cooking a meal and come back to check on food and grill readout says flame out. Had to trouble shoot and found out the heating element was faulty and burned out and finish cooking the meal in the oven.
Third repeat of heating element burning out which it cannot be used without.
Forth breakdown heating element burn out, are we seeing a pattern here?
Fifth breakdown heating element bad again fortunately they accidently sent me two last time, replaced AGAIN! While trying to replace the element for a fifth time was not able to complete the repair because a screw that was used to retain the element broke off. Camp chef had to send a new part that the element goes into.
Sixth received the replacement part but it was improperly welded and was bent and could not be reassembled. So, I had to call Camp Chef yet again to get a REPLACEMENT part for an original REPLACEMENT part and by the way wait a week and a half again.
Seventh replaced the heating element housing as well as the element (if you are counting this is the FIFTH HEATING ELEMENT!
Eighth time is a charm well no! The Camp Chef Grill keeps kicking out the GFI switch so the Digital controller was replaced, ANOTHER heating element, and a replacement temperature probe because the other one was out by over 10 degrees.
Nineth new temperature probe giving bad data and could be as much as 100 degrees off went back to old one that is out by 10 degrees.
Tenth preparing grill because tomorrow is Thanksgiving! After 20 minutes of working, all new parts only used once before and a common theme but wait this is a new controller!  FLAME OUT reading and have to Cook the Thanksgiving meal all in the oven! In the end I am thankful for my Frigidaire stove because it is older than my grill and working from day one with no additional time or effort!
I did reach out to Camp Chef and they refused to give my money back but were interested in keeping me as a repairman for the grill I purchased that is until my 3 Year warranty runs out!
