Question about Cuisinart WMB-4 Belgian Waffle Maker

1 Answer

Power light does lid up when connect

Hi,
I had this Cuisinart waffle maker model WMB 4 for a few years.  I don't see the light lid up whenever I connect to the wall out let as it usually does in the past.  I opened the bottom to check on the heating elements, it look fine.  I could not open the control box on the top where it has two lights red and green.
I would appreciate you assistant.

Most appliances that work with heat, are equipped with a thermal fuse so if the thermostat fails, the fuse opens and prevents a fire.  Unfortunately, the thermal fuses are more unreliable than the devices they 'protect' and are exceedingly difficult to find. Since yours is a widely known brand, you might try their website.

What is the best electric waffle iron to make waffles at home?


In my opinion, the best waffle irons are the vintage ones made here in the USA. They are more durable and more reliable than anything made in China today. Look up the older Sunbeam, Toastmaster, Kenmore and G.E. models and you can usually find either round, square or rectangular versions, as well as models with and without non-stick coatings. The years from late 50's to the late 70's are best.

How do I replace the coil on my WMB-4 waffle maker?


It's most likely not the coil that's the problem, probably a thermal fuse. Unfortunately, these Made in China waffle makers do not last and are basically disposable after a few short years. Better off replacing it with a good quality, vintage 'Made in USA' Sunbeam waffle iron. You can find good deals online on eBay and Amazon.

Need a hinge pin for hinge opposite the handle it is broken


Buy a new waffle maker. I have the same problem. Got by with one broken hinge for a few years, but now the 2nd is broken. Called the company & there are no replacement parts available (looks like the hinge was a common problem). After looking around online, I'm not able to track anything down.
I've personally narrowed my choices down to:
The Caphalon No Peek Round Waffle Maker
Proctor-Silex 26500Y Belgian Waffle Maker
Black & Decker Chrome Belgian Waffle Maker WMB505
Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker

The plastic bottom to the waffle maker melted. I have only had it for a year or so. I don't know when or how it melted. Where do I get a replacement bottom for the waffle maker?


You can write down the brand and model # of the appliance then go on-line and search " your brand, model # and replacement parts. You may have to change up the wording a couple times to get to a site you want. Once you have found the model number and part you need you can usually order it on-line and have it shipped to your home.

When using a toastmaster waffled maker do you have to use an oil or butter pan spray?


Hi,

Normally you mix oil in with the batter, but this doesn't keep the waffles from sticking. Even non-stick waffle makers stick some. Use a light spray of Pam (or similar) on the bottom tray, add your batter than spray the top pan and close. This gives you your best shot at a perfect waffle!
Enjoy!

NEED OWNERS MANUAL


Plug it in, and wait for light to go off..

When light is off, pour (aprox) 1/4 cup batter on each of the 2 (of the 4) waffle panels on the bottom surface. Close lid; then, per manual, wait about 90 seconds. The light may flicker on/off while baking but disregard. You may experiment with different times by observing "steam" from coming out of baking area.
Remove waffles with a plastic spatula (as knives may scratch the non stick coating)

When cleaning, power unit off.. Do not immerse unit in water. Wipe down with a soapy/damp cloth.

I tried using non stick spray and it seemed to make them "soggy"; it also required up to 2 mins (used a "sand timer") then flipped waffles, then another 2mins..

Salton Belgium Waffle Maker


I, too, was searching for that wonderful Belgian Waffle recipe and thought, no problem, I'll just look on-line. I couldn't believe it when Salton didn't have it posted on their site (if they did, I couldn't find it) and was taken to your requests for the recipe. So, I went the whole mile, or should I say traveled over mountains of files, and couldn't believe that my filing system still works after all of these years, the Salton Belgian Waffle Maker & Recipe Guide for Model No. WM-4 was right where it was supposed to be. (And my husband, and prior bosses I should add, have laughed at how I save and file everything. I'm glad I can share this with you all now...

Basic Belgian Waffle Recipe
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg, separated
1/2 tbl butter, melted
-Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl
-Add egg yolk and milk to the dry ingredients and beat together thoroughly.
-Beat egg white until stiff, stir 1/4 into batter to lighten it and then gently fold in the remaining egg white.
-Pour a scant 1/2 cup of batter onto the heated waffle mold. The light should be off. When batter is added, the light will go on. When the light goes off again, the waffle is done.
-Makes about 6 waffles.

Chocolate Waffles ("which make great ice cream sandwiches," says the recipe book.)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 egg, separated
2 Tbl melted butter
1 1/2 squares semi-sweet chocolate (1 1/2 ounces)
3/4 tsp vanilla
-Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl
-Add milk, egg yolk, and vanilla to dry ingredients and beat until well blended.
-Melt butter and chocolate together in microwave or double boiler. Stir chocolate mixture into batter.
-Beat egg white until stiff, stir 1/4 into the batter to lighten it and then gently fold in the remaining egg white.
-Pour a scant 1/2 cup of batter onto the heated heart waffle mold. (Hmm, the WM-4 isn't shaped into a heart??? Oh well, moving onward...)
-Makes about 6 waffles

Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar or cinnamon or topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Cuisinart Classic Round Waffle Iron


The screw that holds the metal cover to the grid is hidden under the black Cuisinart piece on the top. There are 4 ears which lock it down. I'm not sure the best way to get them open, as I broke mine opening it. Looks like if you take a metal putty knife, and push toward the hinge from the handle, at the end of the radius at each side, it may pop off for you. The other two are about 3/4" off the back of the piece, and should get out of the way as you lift the front.

Now, does anyone know where to get a replacement black cuisinart piece?

Proceed at your own risk, this information is worth what you paid for it, and I broke mine in the process.
