Question about Toastmaster 287 Waffle Maker
Where can I obtain a thermostat for the toastmaster 287 waffle iron?
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.
