Why does my Gold Medal Waffle Cone Iron trip GFI outlet when I switch on?


because the iron draws too much power for the GFI. Plug it into a regular socket instead.

Cleaning your waffle iron WPLT4

Let me start by telling you WHAT NOT TO DO.
  1. Never clean a waffle maker while it's still hot. Let it cool completely.

  2. Never dunk your entire waffle maker in water.

  3. Never use scouring pads, steel wool or abrasive cleansers.

  4. Never use a knife or pointed object to clean your waffle maker(I've actually seen that advised on less reputable sites).

When it comes to cleaning a waffle maker, your first source of information should always be the owner's manual. There are many different kinds of waffle makers, so your buddy Mr Breakfast will gladly defer his expertise to the company that makes your waffle maker.





What I can speak about is my own favorite waffle iron. It's a modern electric waffle iron with non-stick and non-removable baking plates. That's the same kind you have? Oh good. It looks like you came to the right guy.

Cleaning the baking plates:
  1. Remove any small puddles of oil with a dry paper towel.

  2. Brush away any crumbs with a soft-bristled kitchen brush or old toothbrush.

  3. Remove any batter stuck to the iron with a rubber spatula.

  4. To remove really-stuck-on batter, douse the baked-on batter with cooking oil. Wait 5 minutes for the batter to soften. Dab the batter off with a paper towel or cloth.

  5. To prevent staining and long-term oil build up, wipe down the baking plates with a damp cloth or paper towel.

  6. Make sure the waffle iron is completely dry before storing.

To clean the exterior, wipe down the housing and handle with a damp cloth.


Keeping it clean:

There are a couple things to remember to make sure our kind of waffle maker stays clean.

  1. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, you should never coat the baking plates of a non-stick waffle iron with cooking spray. Over time that will give you a gummy build up that will turn your waffle maker to junk. Today, when a waffle maker makes the claim that it's non-stick, they really mean it. The only oil you need is the oil in the recipe. If your waffles are sticking, it's your batter that needs more oil, not your waffle maker.

  2. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, don't use soap to clean your baking plates. Soap can be the enemy of a non-stick surface. Oil - on the other hand - can be a great friend. It creates a thin layer that helps maintain the non-stick surface. Soap will completely obliterate that layer of friendly oil. Harsh soaps can deteriorate the manufacturer's non-stick surface over time.

I have a swb7re waffle iron. What's the best way to clean it?


Hello, W/D here.
Not everyone will tell you this, but here's the best way. When you are finished with the waffle maker, the plates will be oily. That's good. Wipe down the outside of the appliance with mild soapy water, followed by clean water. Wipe down the plates with clean water only, just enough to remove any left over waffle material. Then, dry the plates with paper towels, or a soft cloth. You want to avoid detergent on the plates, as this strips the oil off which seasons the plates, making better waffles.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a kalorik heart shaped waffle maker and on the first use, after the first waffle, the waffle iron stopped working. i was wondering if there was something i could do to reset it or if i should just...


Check the outlet that it was plugged into. If you used it in a kitchen it may have been plugged into a GFI outlet (Ground Fault Interrupter). If the safety device in the outlet failed, or there was more than one heating type appliance used on the outlet or a standard wall outlet. Then you may have simply triggered the circuit breaker that addresses this device. For example, If you had the coffee maker on, or the toaster, or the microwave oven on. Using an additional appliance would pop the breaker.
Here are the possible solutions. TRY your waffle maker in another outlet. If it was plugged into a GFI wall outlet, then find the "reset button" on the outlet and push it. If it clicks, it means that it had tripped. NOW HERE IS AN IMPORTANT POINT TO FOLLOW. If you reset the GFI and plug in the Waffle Maker, then turn it on and the outlet pops off. there is a wiring defect in the waffle Iron.
If you don't have a GFI and you plug the waffle iron into a standard outlet and turn it on and it trips the breaker, then same thing. A defect in the Waffle Iron. Now if you plug the waffle iron into a good circuit and it works again. Then it was a matter of the outlet being overloaded by too many small appliances.
Very common problem. Not serious. Just reset the breaker. Or if it's a fuse, replace it.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

When i plug it in it trips my gfi and it is not on


This can be caused by one of two things. (1) The GFI plug has a problem: it could be broken behind the face plate, or some of the wires in the box are so close that when you push a plug into the outlet, they touch and trip the GFI. (2) The other source is due to a defect in the appliance between the cord and the power switch. That is why the GFI faults even before it the coffee maker is turned on.

Have the outlet checked thoroughly and make any needed adjustments / repair /replacement and reconnect the coffee maker again. If it trips, the coffee maker will need to be serviced. DO NOT use the coffee maker in another non-GFI outlet until it has been checked out. The chances of electrical shock or burns is significant until the problem is found and corrected.

most Keurig cofee makers will trip 15amp GFI'S .
So you should unplug the machine take all the water out wait about 1/2 hour . Then plug it into an outlet that has at least 115volts and 20 amp breaker or fuse . You can purchase plu in testers at radio shack or electrical supply store.

let me know.

Keeps tripping GFI outlets


The key here is to identify the problem as being either the coffee maker or the GFI receptacle... a simple test can be done as follows...
Try plugging the Coffee Maker into another GFI receptacle .. you may have one in the bathroom? If it trips that too, then you have an internal wiring problem with your coffee maker.. if it doesn;t ..then your GFI receptacle may be bad or on the verge of going bad .. either way..this should narrow the problem down to one or the other.. hope this helps..
