I have a electric indoor grill, as soon as it reaches temp to gill steak, it switches off, and I do not get the heat again until it switches again.

How do i overcome this?

indoor electric grills are rather well noted for being not quite up to the job.

that aside, it may not be possible to "adjust" the thermostatic control.
and post that - there's the question of whether it's advisable / safe to increase the shut off temp. higher than design temperatures could cause failure of the element and/or (electrical) insulating bits.

does it have a knob/dial?
does it have any holes/set screws?
can it be disassembled or is it "permanently" assembled?

I think so you have to take it to repair center where they can see what went wrong in it as without seeing it, it is not possible to find it what went wrong.
