Element burnt out? This screams ELECTRIC GRILL to me, and I don't think I would build a fire in it and cook food for human consumption unless all the electrical components have been removed.

To clean it, I would go buy a can of oven cleaner, spray it thoroughly inside and out, let it sit for a few hours, then wipe it clean.

That said, you can buy a charcoal burning grill brand spanking new for less than the cost of your labor, at minimum wage, to clean this one up. Run over to K-Mart or Wally World and buy a servicable unit for under 45 bucks American.

If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

My gas BBQ also broke and I just removed the burners and piping and used charcoal in it. Still works fine, my mom is using it now that I have a new one. If you've cleaned of most of the dirt make a charcoal fire in it with the grill on and brush the grill clean while hot, it works better than trying to do it when it's cold.
