Black plastic fitting at rear top of maker shattered.
The waffle maker fell and that black plastic piece at the rear of the maker that allows it to rotate and also houses the wiring shattered. Can this be repaired? If so, is there a part number for that piece and where can it be purchased?

Hi, Unfortunately you have ruined a perfectly good waffle maker... The coating in there is a teflon coating that needs to be applied properly for it to work...if you try to use it in the condition it is in then the waffle will stick to the plate...
Best thing to do is to trash the old one and then buy a new one...
To tighten the screws on the handle, you have to take the top off. To do this, you have to take the black top piece off, and then you can reach the screw that holds the aluminum top. To remove the black top, use a small screwdriver to push the tabs that hold the top on. You can reach these tabs by opening the lid about half way, and going through a hole that is created by the hinge.
NO PARTS MADE , rebaged cheep made unit from china . call home shopping
and tell them , it broke , not that you dropped it . you might get a discount or something , your not the
only one with problems with this waffle maker !
I made a template of the shaft, cut out a sturdy piece of tin to straddle the break, and then screwed that piece in at both ends after securely fitting the break together. A lot of work, but the waffle maker works great!
The screw that holds the metal cover to the grid is hidden under the black Cuisinart piece on the top. There are 4 ears which lock it down. I'm not sure the best way to get them open, as I broke mine opening it. Looks like if you take a metal putty knife, and push toward the hinge from the handle, at the end of the radius at each side, it may pop off for you. The other two are about 3/4" off the back of the piece, and should get out of the way as you lift the front.
Now, does anyone know where to get a replacement black cuisinart piece?
Proceed at your own risk, this information is worth what you paid for it, and I broke mine in the process.
