Question about Krups FDD813 Meal Master Sandwich / Waffle / Pizzelle Maker

FDD8 sandwich maker will not heat up

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.

Suddenly stopped heating with a waffle half-made. There was an interruption between removal of last finished waffle and pouring new batter in. I suspect the thermostat failed. What cost for a new...

If you are savy to fixing these types of appliances you can disassemble the unit to gain access to the thermostat and upon inspecting that you should see a part number. Search for that part on google and you might get lucky. This model is no longer available and you would be saved a headache by getting a new one.

Used this machine 5 times and it now has no power, just dead!

If fuse in plug ok, Then the week spot is the wiring, Bear in mind the elements are in the top and bottom sole plate so stress faults can occur in the wiring between these plates. Also sometimes a thermal fuse may have gone, This component is usually hidden somewhere in the wiring.

The top piece is not heating up

If you feel confident opening the appliance (while disconnected from the mains of course!)

1. Check the internal cable between the bottom part of the unit and the top part. If this is damaged or tests to be open circuit, it will require replacing.

2. If the cable is OK, check the continuity on the heating element in the top half of the machine. If it is open circuit, then the element will require replacing.

Foreman gv5 grill just stoped working

There is a thermal fuse in series with the heating coils inside. You will have to disassemble it, find the fuse, take it to an electric supply house and get a replacement. Some soldering "may" be necessary.
