Question about Waring WMK300 Professional Belgian Waffle Maker
Same thing happened to me. It just stopped heating up. It makes a clicking noise and the power light lights, but the ready light never comes on.
I posted the same problem (no heat) but may have found the answer. There is a component that cuts off the power if the unit gets too hot. My best guess name for it would be a "thermal fuse". If it goes...no heat. (located behind one the waffle grids inside unit..silver and black)(behind the other grid is what I believe to be a variable resistor that varies with heat..used to set heat levels in conjunction with the dial on the front of waffle maker)
When thermal fuse goes it needs to be replaced. BUT I WONDER
what caused the overheating? I will go down to Radio Shack and buy the "thermal fuse" according to the data on the old "fuse" and put it in...then ????waffles or sparks???
the old fuse has printed on it: sheng ping SPF240 TF240 Deg. Celsius 10 amps 250volts 073 and some symbols
Wish me luck

There is a thermal fuse inside the bottom half of the unit, enclosed ina white insulating sleeve. This appears to be the weak part of thecircuit. A replacement can be found here on Amazon.com.

Had same issue,found a looks like diode on the black wire leading to the heating elements.It is open circuited.Needs replacing.It is not a diode...maybe a voltage circuit protection device.It is crimped into the black wire under the sleeve clamped down near the handle.Going to radio shack to get a idea,replacement.
