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.

    I found on ebay ( a 1/2", bimetal disk thermostat, 15A, open-on-rise, 180c (5c less than original, so 356F instead of 365F ) . Including shipping from China, $3.99! Or you can bid on it. I just won an auction for $1.05 !?! They also have a 200c part, but nothing in between. I will see if it works. I can't see spending $50 to fix a $30 waffle iron, though I love it dearly. The high (365F) temperature of the set point compared to others that I have owned set this unit apart.

  2. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Waffle is usually done when it stops steaming. Cook until golden brown.

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).
