Question about Waring WMK300 Professional Belgian Waffle Maker

Unit gets warm but not hot enough to cause ready light to come on

The first two times the unit was used it worked, but on the third attempt to use it, it would not get hot enough to beep or cause the ready light to come on so we could use it -- No beep and very little heat.

    I have the same problem. Used it 2 or 3 times, now the light comes on but no heat whatsoever. I emailed Waring website's customer service. I'll report any progress in a resolution.

My Oster wafflemaker doesn't get hot! The lights are on but only gets warm


One or more of the heating elements are not activating. If you take it apart, perhaps you can do a continuity test on each element to see which is bad. I don't believe they sell element replacements so your only choice would be a new purchase or warranty.

Waffle iron light goes on gut does not heat up


The most common reason for not heating up is because of a blown thermal fuse. Apparently the controller lets the iron get too hot or the fuse is out of manufacturing tolerance - and so the fuse opens.
The green lamp is normally lit when the relay is off and dark when the relay is on. When cold, the relay normally turns on within a second of power-up (switched on). During power-up, the green (ready) lamp should flicker on, and then as the relay clicks, go dark. If the green (ready) lamp does not flicker, the fuse is probably blown.
The fuse is clamped inside the bottom clamshell in silicon tubing. A replacement fuse (240°C) can be purchased from many sources. The fuse should be re-attached to the wires with new all-metal crimp fasteners.
If the iron is getting too hot and blowing thermal fuses, you may be able to avoid this failure by keeping the thermostat set lower. (Turned a bit counter-clockwise.) If the waffles are no longer dark enough at the ready beep, you may have to use manual override by watching the steam and smelling the waffle.

Tried to make waffles for the first time. They consistently burned in the middle. Added milk to the batter. Still burned in the middle, barely cooked on the outside.


Sounds like you might not have let it warm up enough. These usually heat from the inside out. So they heat up and then take a few minutes for the emtire surface to be hot.

Turn it on and let it heat up while you make your mix up. Or a good 10 minutes. Give it a spray of pam or equivilent on both sides if you want and then make some waffles. If you want to experiment a bit try dropping a drop of water on the middle and outside. When they boil or his about the same your are hot enough.

My waffle maker continues to stick even after I brush butter or oil all over the grill. I'm about ready to throw the thing away! Is there anyway to get a replacement?


Depending on how long you have had it, if you still have the receipt or not you might be able to return it to the store you got it at, espically if you got it at a target, k-mart, wal-mart ect, and switch it out for the same one, or sometimes even get your money back.

Also are u making sure your waffel iron is getting nice and hot? if its not at max temp when u poor in the batter it will stick. (most have a light on the outside that will light up, when its hot enough)

My waffle maker has the light on but it is not getting hot enough to make waffle. Is this a fuse problem? HELP!!!


Most likely, the thermal fuse inside the lower half of the unit is blown. It is a 240 degree celcius fuse found inside a white insulating sleeve. A replacement can be found here on Amazon.com.

When making waffle cones, some come out too soft to serve ice cream in, why? We use our waffle maker daily and on some days all day. Most of the waffle cones are good but every now and then some come out...


Are you certain you are cooking your waffles long enough? If they are not completely baked they will not harden. Additionally if you are in a humid climate they may take a bit longer when you cook them otherwise the moisture will cause them to stay soft.

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 goes...no 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

Seasoning Waffle Baker and Grill


FIrst, make sure there is some kind of fat or oil in the waffle batter recipe. This is the biggest difference between waffle and pancake batter. Go to Sams or a restaurant supply store and get a spray product like waffle-off. Spray lightly aftter every few waffles. Use lightly as heavy spray can cause build up. If you can't find this product use one of the PAM type sprays for BBQ grills or maybe an olive oil based product. Regular Pam sprays build up faster as they are not really designed for this. Don't try to wash the grids between uses as they need to keep the oil coating. (Like using a cast iron skillet) They will turn a dark brown. Just brush off crumbs or use a damp rag. Make sure the waffles are completely cooked as when not completely cooked they will seperate and be very difficult to remove. They are cooked when the steam stops coming from the sides. This will take 3 - 6 minutes. Don't preheat with the iron open or allow it to stand open for any longer than necessary. (It can overheat)

WMK300 turns on but doest not heat up


the problem is an open thermal fuse. This fuse is located in the fixed grill; it is clamped to the grill and is covered by a white plastic sleeve.

The replacement part should be a 240°C/464°F 10 - 15 Amp thermal fuse. NTE sells a part NTE8242 which works available from Mouser.com for $1.41 plus shipping.
