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. .
