    Welcome lighteningboy.  You posted this under Duke, but that confuses me as Duke never made a 800 series.  Could you possibly have a Star?  Regardless.  If you powered a 120 volt direct ignition  unit with 230 volts you have destroyed a lot .  One would have to test out both controls and solenoid valves.  Valve coils will definitely have been damaged.  Control is hard to say.  They are made for a short over-voltage, but normally only about 160 volts.  You can Ohm out the coils.  They will be open if over-voltage burned them out. 


    CHROME is a trademark for Magikitch’n.  But agian the model numbers don’t match.

    Frank, Having run across this before, Hubbell makes a appiance converter that just plugs in with a NEMA 15 receptical on the bottom for this type of problem.  It can be found here;

    Contact your local electrical supply house to buy it and pricing.

    So what your saying is a $11,000 griddle is now a paper weight. due to miss hook up.  Want you to know it’s not the first.  Many years ago Iinstalled a recepticle for a portable steam table. It had a 3 pole 30 amp 250volt twist lock  plug  on it.  Ok, I installed a identical receptacle.  To bad that the elements were 120 volt. .
