Older waffle maker is not heating up

Toastmaster waffle maker, model 287 is not heating up and the "power on" light is not coming on. There is a small ceramic part inside that I believe to be the problem. (called a heating element or something)??? It has A185 deg C printed on the side of the part and Z 42/43, 10/250 on the top.

Is there a way to replace this part?

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).

Why does my waffles stick?

You have to lightly coat the waffle iron with vegetable oil, and then you won't have them sticking.
Otherwise, it's a mess!

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 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.
