    Same problem, and it's almost new.

  • KellyFid Jan 13, 2009

    This is my 2nd waffle maker - I took the first one back with the waffle batter IN it - because it quit heating in the middle of breakfast one morning. I finally threw the new box away just before Christmas, because the 2nd one had worked for several months - so I figured the first waffle maker was just a lemon - Now my 2nd one isn't heating up! How do we contact Waring directly? I've moved & I can't return it to the store where I purchased it! HELP! We loved this thing - waffles all the time - until yesterday!

    We have used our belgin now waffle maker a few times ...really! Now in the middle of a big breakfast with family and friends the other morning,it decides to stop making what was IN the waffle maker! what a mess! ....I would like to know with so many people experencing this same exact problem; why we as consumers cannot get any attention, or recourse from the manf. .......I am not going to drag this waffle maker full of partially cooked flour mix downtown or across the side of our suburbs to get a $50.00 sub standard machine fixed for $40.00 of my own money.... I guess customer NO service will not work either, as there is not a number or web site to contact...last Warning appliance I ever buy, I will be telling everyone I run in to if they ask as well....perfect way to run a business in the ground in these times...Way to NOT go Warning!

    I have several of these units that are having the same problem plus a few other probs. I have a relative that owns a small resturaunt and they are all going out. 3 in the past year have stopped heating up, then this new one right out of the box (5 alltogether broke down). When she called Waring they had no problem with sending us another free of charge. The other problem we are having with these is the plastic shield around the spinner keeps falling apart.

Thanks Cactus Bob - Unfortunately, I can't seem to locate a contact number or email for Waring - pretty nice, huh? I think I'm going to have to call one of the department stores to get a number.

I have a pizzelle maker when do I know the right time to open & pour batter and when it is ready to be removed without burning

Some irons have one light that indicates that the heating element is on. I think that the Saulton iron has two lights. One light indicates that the iron is plugged in. The second light indicates that the heating element is on. You should wait until the second light goes off before trying to bake the first pizzelle. The second light will turn on and off as the thermostat regulates the heat. The cooking time depends on the pizzelle iron that you use. A good iron can bake a pizzelle in 30 seconds. The Salton iron WM8PZL takes up to 90 seconds for each cycle. Check the pizzelles after 30 seconds. The first pizzelles are seldom good. Experiment with the baking times to get the baking time right. After that keep up a steady pace to produce consistent results.
Early pizzelle irons were heated over open fires and made good pizzelles so with some practice you will be able to make pizzelles too.

My kettle Hamilton Beach does not work. I push the switch and the light is on for 1 second and go off, but is not working.

please make this steps for test for fix it. God bless you
  1. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet.
  2. For appliances with a removable cord, use contact cleaner, fine sandpaper, a small file or emery board, or a brass brush to carefully clean the terminal pins located where the cord connects to the appliance.
  3. Remove screws and/or clips to access controls on the unit or the removable cord. Clean the controls with contact cleaner, sandpaper, or file, being careful not to damage them or loosen parts
  4. Remove screws and/or clips to access the heating elements. Use a multimeter to test for continuity and replace any faulty element.
  5. To adjust the heat control, follow the steps below.
  6. To service the heat control, follow the steps below.
Adjust the heat control:
  1. Use a candy thermometer to verify the appliance's actual heat against its indicated heat. If the cooking appliance cooks with liquids (fry pan, wok, etc.), add water to the half-mark to test.
  2. Adjust the heat indicator on the control or adjust the temperature-adjustment screw (if available) to match the unit's actual heat.
  3. Recheck the actual temperature against the indicated temperature and readjust as needed.
Service the heat control:
  1. Unplug the control and open the housing. Set a multimeter on RX1 (resistance times 1) and touch the thermostat terminals with the probes. In the on position, the meter should read near zero ohms.
  2. Clean any contacts to remove food or corrosion, then polish with fine sandpaper or steel wool. If the contacts have only a little debris, use contact cleaner.
  3. If the heat control still doesn't work correctly, replace it with an exact replacement part

My waffle iron no longer heats up.just a red light

Had the same problem with the WMK300 that others are reporting. Plug it in, hear the click, red light goes on but unit does not heat up. Found the thermal fuse in the white insulation on the bottom unit. Found replacement at Radio Shack ( Works great!

Dead krups waffle iron

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.

FDD8 sandwich maker will not heat up

The purpose of the button is to shut off the power to the heating coil when there is no cooking plate in place. It appears by your tests that the button (switch) has failed. You can jumper around the switch to verify that this is the case. If the heating coil gets hot with the jumper in place, then you need to replace the switch (button). If it does not get hot, then either the heating coil has a bad connection to the wiring. the coil is actually bad and needs to be replaced or there is a break in the neutral circuit somewhere. Did you do a continuity check on the neutral side of the circuit? There should also be a thermostat (tempurature control) and a thermofuse in the circuit that you should also check for continuity.

Waring Pro Waffle Maker

I posted the same problem (no heat) but may have found the answer. There is a component that cuts off the power if the unit gets too hot. My best guess name for it would be a "thermal fuse". If it heat. (located behind one the waffle grids inside unit..silver and black)(behind the other grid is what I believe to be a variable resistor that varies with heat..used to set heat levels in conjunction with the dial on the front of waffle maker)
When thermal fuse goes it needs to be replaced. BUT I WONDER
what caused the overheating? I will go down to Radio Shack and buy the "thermal fuse" according to the data on the old "fuse" and put it in...then ????waffles or sparks???
the old fuse has printed on it: sheng ping SPF240 TF240 Deg. Celsius 10 amps 250volts 073 and some symbols
Wish me luck

Waffle iron top not heating

I don't know for your model type, but in many of these the heating element can be replaced. Check with an ohm meter to know if the element is actually defective, or if it is the thermo safety cutoff fuse that is blown.

If you were to do this yourself, and you know about appliance servicing, have instruments to check for proper temperature and current draw, and you will need the proper crimp-fittings (stake-ons), and crimp tool to do any of the wiring inside.

No heat

It will initialy take some time to heat, but if it doesnt become hot in 3min or so.. then make sure voltage is properly fed and also check for any switches or reset button. If all this doesnt work then it means the heating coil inside wud have been cut or fused.
