Question about Krups FDD912-75 Expert Belgian Waffle Maker
I have Krups FDD912-75 Expert Belgian Waffle Maker, i have been using it for 5 months in my coffe shop and 2 days ago it statred not heating.

i asked to an electrician and he checked and said that the elements are working properly.
so he said the problem should be the thermostat.
i dont know what to do and i am desperate cos thos krup waffle model is not on sale in united kingdom.
i bought it from germany.

That is probably a thermal fuse. It is designed to open and stop heaters from working incase of over heat condition.
Meaning if you did not leave the appliance on too long with nothiung in it, the thermostat may be not opening at correct temp or the fuse was in a place where it got over heated or the fuse was weak.
You can replace it 1 time see if it worked ok but if it goes out again and you didn't see anything this time best replace it. Especially if under $50.00. Thermostat will probably run 1/2 of that. Thermal fuse 3 to 10. Try a heating AC parts store and take the old party with you.
If this helps you please help me by rating me as high as you can. Thanks for using fix ya.

Usually there is steam rising from the waffle maker when cooking, if there is no light on it to tell you when it is done watch the seam and as it is getting done there will be less steam than when it first started, if there is a light watch when it goes off or when the steam stops and then count minutes to when you open it to see how browned toasted you prefer

it will have a warning signal on it,,,,,its called smoke?
even flames if its realy desprate!!!
the thing is its cooking,,, and thats not an exact sciences, so realy you just lift the lid to have a look, just like you test a cake, stab it with a knife? and flick it with your finger,, if it rings its cooked

I think this is why people make pancakes. =) Cleaning the waffle iron is a real pain. My waffle maker looks exactly like the one you have pictured. Mine also came with no instructions because its my fiance's. As far as how much batter to use, you should use a ladle and through trial and error figure out how much is the best amount. I would guesstimate approximately 1/4 c. For cleaning the overspill, from what I have read online, everyone says to unplug the iron (obviously) and wait until the waffle iron has completely cooled before cleaning. I have cleaned the back of the unit (where the coils are, which unfortunately got flooded with batter the first time) with a damp kitchen brush, damp sponge, and paper towels. Its messy and time consuming to clean up. You can get in the coils better with an old toothbrush or a very small bottle cleaner (like the kind you would buy to clean cake decorator tips). I just use warm water to remove the batter/gunk. I use a sponge (damp with warm water) to clean the baking plates. I towel dry everything after its clean, and clean the outside with a little windex so it stays nice and shiny. Good luck! I also recommend making lots of extra waffles and freezing them, so you can avoid as much waffle clean-up as possible. ;) You can heat them up in the toaster like Eggos. They stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your advice. I was trying to unscrew the waffle maker so I could get in the nook, but it won't come apart. I used 3/4 cup batter!"
