SOURCE: COFFEE MAKER PRESTO SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN MODEL INOPERATIVE

Sorry to hear.  when mine did this you had to cycle the on button from off-auto-on wait 6 sec and do it again and again till brewed.  Took about 10 min to brew the pot.  seems there is something wrong with the brew heater or thermal switch.  my hotplate got hot but would not brew.
 Called Presto and they said its discontinued.  They also said they just put their name on the product and never carried or serviced this model.  If they had a return they would just give a new one but since it is discontinued they cant even do that.  If you have a costco near buy you can take it back as a gift and they sold it for 35.00.  If its under a year old Presto will give you 1/3 the price towards another Presto product.  yay.

SOURCE: no heat

since the light is on its own circuit this dont surprise me at all. The most likely cause of this is the contacts on the inside of the heater. the wire inside of the unit is very small for a heater, bad design, and is conected by spade conectors. my wire in mine burnt through and did the same thing. I bought some good thick wire and rewired the unit direct and this seemed to fix the problem. If you need further assistance check out some of my other solutions in this same area.

SOURCE: Bought Presto Poplite New Used Once Never Worked Again ?

Welcome to FixYa, If my solution meets your approval, I'd appreciate a good ranking. Regarding the popper, I read the owner's manual for this model and it is a very simple machine. I had thought that there might me some type of interlock or switch that might be at fault for the malfunction but they don't. It seems that the unit is just filled with popcorn, plugged in and within two or three minutes you should have popcorn.

  • If you haven't already, try plugging the unit into another outlet.
  • If the unit is in an area with a G.F.I. outlet (these are rectangular and have a reset switch that can pop and make the outlet dead) check the outlet and if needed reset it by pushing the red button back in.
The good news is that Presto is a very old company with a great reputation for customer service. Their warranty is 2 years, but if you explain the situation and the unit is more than two years old, they may repair it for nothing. You would be responsible for the shipping. In fact, their warranty says to return it and just indicate the date purchased. They don't even require a receipt. They can be contacted at:

Service Department weekdays 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM (Central Time) at 1-800-877-0441

Finally, just in case you don't have the user's manual any longer, it can be viewed and saved at the following link:

Thanks again for allowing me to assist!

SOURCE: RE: Presto Heat Dish buzzer going off

I almost threw my heater out! I cleaned this morning with Window Cleaner and it works just fine now. It was just dust. I cleaned the round metal area not the coils.

Hope this helps.

Emailed Presto about replacing the buzzer and here is the answer I got:


There is no such part. Buzzer sounds when heater:
- is tipped
- rests uneven on floor
- is too close to furniture or wall
- has too much dust on parabolic dish
The most common reason is that the parabolic dish is dusty.
To clean the heater:
1. Unplug the heater and clean it when it is cool
2. Spray a cloth with an all-purpose cleaner such as 409
3. Wrap the cloth around a long handle such as a wooden spoon
4. Wipe between the grate from the outer edge to the center
If you have further questions, please let me know. Or call us at 1-800-877-0441 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.

I lost the instructions for my sunbeam waffle maker, and I dont know how long Ihave to bake it.


Here is a direct link to the User's Manual for your appliance:

http://dl.owneriq.net/d/db0acd4e-57c1-43f0-a51b-4ef04ad30e2d.pdf


To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 2 of the manual for detailed operating instructions. Basically they read as follows:

Preparing Waffles

1. Close Waffle Maker and plug into outlet. Use only voltage specified on bottom of Waffle Maker. The Power light (Red) and Ready light (Green) will come on.
Caution: Touch Waffle Maker only by handles during use or directly after use. Take care not to touch hot surfaces.

2. The Waffle Maker is ready for initial use when the Ready (green) light goes out (approximately 2-4 minutes).

3. Open Waffle Maker, pour approximately 3/4 cup waffle batter onto grids. For best results, pour batter around outer edge of waffle maker. Close cover. It is very typical to have a small amount of batter run over grid and down Waffle Maker. However, if an excessive amount of batter runs over, use less batter.

4. Close the Waffle Maker by lowering the upper plate onto the lower plate and secure with the safety latch. Do not open cover while steam is escaping. Most waffles bake in approximately 2-4 minutes, depending on personal taste. Waffles are generally done when the Ready light (green) goes out and when steam no longer escapes from sides and front of Waffle Maker.

5. When waffles are done, remove with a fork or wooden tongs. Note: Be careful you do not scratch the non-stick cooking surface.

6. Close cover and wait for Ready light to go out before preparing another batch of waffles. The next waffle may be baked in less time because the plate will store heat.


I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

The waffle maker, model 200.12931, was plugged into 220 and the fuse blew. How do I replace the fuse?


I have a feeling that more than just a fuse blew and that the waffle maker is now trashed. Not many appliances can stand a 100% voltage overload, the elements and insulation are just not made to stand that.

Controls not accurate on uno waffle iron


Thats why they give you the control knobs so you can set it for the best performance. A waffle will change heat requirements depending on ingredients in the waffles and the altitude you live in and the amount of humidity in the air.

Waffles sticking in a Salton wm-4.


Salton wm-4! one of the oldest waffle maker. The waffle is generally known to be difficult to clean. I would only advice you should always grease the plate before use. This helps make cleaning easy.

Can Toastmaster 218 work on 220V?


Any electronics bought in the US will work on 110V. You will need a voltage converter if you want to use your Waffle Maker in Italy. I have one, it is very easy to use!
