Question about Krups FDD813 Meal Master Sandwich / Waffle / Pizzelle Maker
I disassembled the bottom of the FDD8. I have electrical continuity on the blue wire up to the button under the cooking plate. I lose electrical continuity at the button under the cooking plate. I noticed that this button moves down when the cooking plate is installed. I have no electrical continuity in either the up or down position of this button. What is the purpose of this button?? I have electrical continuity on the brown wire all the way to the heating coil. I have electrical continuity on the heating coil.
The purpose of the button is to shut off the power to the heating coil when there is no cooking plate in place. It appears by your tests that the button (switch) has failed. You can jumper around the switch to verify that this is the case. If the heating coil gets hot with the jumper in place, then you need to replace the switch (button). If it does not get hot, then either the heating coil has a bad connection to the wiring. the coil is actually bad and needs to be replaced or there is a break in the neutral circuit somewhere. Did you do a continuity check on the neutral side of the circuit? There should also be a thermostat (tempurature control) and a thermofuse in the circuit that you should also check for continuity.
