Question about Waffle Irons

1 Answer

I have an older model waffle make. Toastmaster model 287 that has stopped heating and the "power on" light is not sowing power. I took the machine apart and I imagine the ceramic heating element ,or what ever the name for that piece is, is broken. can one find a new ceramic piece to fix it? is has "A 185 deg C" printed on the side and Z42/43, 10/250 on the top.

I have a green light and a red. what do they mean?


Red means that it has power. Green means the heating element is on. The green light will cycle on and off as the thermostat controls the temperature. Allow the iron to heat til the green light goes off before adding batter. Watch for steam coming from the iron. When the steam stops the waffle should be done. Keep track of the time that it takes to cook. Experiment with cooking time for the best results.

Toastmaster model 265 user manual


Indicator light shows the the heating element is on. Yes, it should be hot enough when the light goes off. The numbers at the following site may not match but you should be able to find the information that you need.

My waffe batter stuck to the waffle iron


After each time you use it, when it cools, it should be wiped clean and lightly oiled (so it's non-stick ready to use for next time).

Repalcement plates for Model 270A Toastmaster Waffle Iron?


There is no way you can get replacement plates for you Toastmaster cheaper than you can buy a new one, the most expensive Toastmaster waffle maker I found was $30. the cheapest was $15 shipping will be at least half of that.

Toastmaster 287 thermostat


I had the same problem a few weeks ago where the Ready light came on and stayed on. After opening it up I realized the little disc is a thermostat. After some Internet searches I found out who the manufacturer was and emailed a sales guy there. They didn't sell retail, but he recommended www.selcoproducts.com. It took some more research to figure out which kind I needed because there are a lot.

Choose there Thermal Products link, then Disc Thermostats, 1/2" Disc - Automatic Reset. You'll want the Open On Rise type. There are all kinds of different temperatures and I had a real hard time finding what temperature to buy. I found a patent that said 166 Celcius (about 300 F) so I got that type from the 1/2" Disc - OA Series link. It isn't as high a temperature as the old one so I run it for 2 cycles of the Ready light and it worked perfect. You may want to try their higher temperature ones under the 1/2 Disc CR/OR Series - High Temperature - Polyester, or Ceramic if you want to try higher than 365 F. Whichever you get make sure under Mounting it says Rotating Bracket. It will show you individual pictures of each so you'll see what you want.

They have a minimum order of $50, though. So you'll want to buy a few. I had to buy 5, but with the High Temperature ones you probably can get away with 4 since they are slightly more expensive.

Pizzelle maker 208 won't heat up.


Most appliances that work with heat, are equipped with a thermal fuse so if the thermostat fails, the fuse opens and prevents a fire. It is basically a good idea since all of our junk now comes from China and half of it is poorly designed and unreliable.
These fuses are normally not user replaceable since they are crimped or welded into series with one side of the AC line. And, they are tough as hens' teeth to find anyhow.
A year ago, I had three coffeemakers of the same model die in as many days. I took a refund.
The Toastmaster toaster we have, bought because of the name and appearance, is the absolute worst toaster we have ever owned. It regularly leaves one side of each slice burned, the other too light. I'm afraid the name means nothing anymore.
