Go to the waring site, and look up the nearest dealer for repair and bring it to them. They should be able to contact waring for you and get you a replacement.

Once the waffle is cooked how do you open the iron?

You need to spray oil on the waffle iron top and bottom before you put the batter in so it doesn't stick.
When it's cooked (steam mostly stops coming out), just lift the top off, and use a fork to lift your waffle out.

Need a hinge pin for hinge opposite the handle it is broken

Buy a new waffle maker. I have the same problem. Got by with one broken hinge for a few years, but now the 2nd is broken. Called the company & there are no replacement parts available (looks like the hinge was a common problem). After looking around online, I'm not able to track anything down.
I've personally narrowed my choices down to:
The Caphalon No Peek Round Waffle Maker
Proctor-Silex 26500Y Belgian Waffle Maker
Black & Decker Chrome Belgian Waffle Maker WMB505
Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker

I have a model 269C toastmaster waffle Baker.. and need to replace the right handle which has a broke leg and is unstable ... other wise it's new... never been used

You can often find good replacement parts for waffle irons on eBay using your make and model # in the search box. Or buy another cheap used one in the same model and rob the parts from it.

Cleaning your waffle iron WPLT4

c.gif c.gif

Let me start by telling you WHAT NOT TO DO.
  1. Never clean a waffle maker while it's still hot. Let it cool completely.

  2. Never dunk your entire waffle maker in water.

  3. Never use scouring pads, steel wool or abrasive cleansers.

  4. Never use a knife or pointed object to clean your waffle maker(I've actually seen that advised on less reputable sites).

When it comes to cleaning a waffle maker, your first source of information should always be the owner's manual. There are many different kinds of waffle makers, so your buddy Mr Breakfast will gladly defer his expertise to the company that makes your waffle maker.

What I can speak about is my own favorite waffle iron. It's a modern electric waffle iron with non-stick and non-removable baking plates. That's the same kind you have? Oh good. It looks like you came to the right guy.

Cleaning the baking plates:
  1. Remove any small puddles of oil with a dry paper towel.

  2. Brush away any crumbs with a soft-bristled kitchen brush or old toothbrush.

  3. Remove any batter stuck to the iron with a rubber spatula.

  4. To remove really-stuck-on batter, douse the baked-on batter with cooking oil. Wait 5 minutes for the batter to soften. Dab the batter off with a paper towel or cloth.

  5. To prevent staining and long-term oil build up, wipe down the baking plates with a damp cloth or paper towel.

  6. Make sure the waffle iron is completely dry before storing.

To clean the exterior, wipe down the housing and handle with a damp cloth.

Keeping it clean:

There are a couple things to remember to make sure our kind of waffle maker stays clean.

  1. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, you should never coat the baking plates of a non-stick waffle iron with cooking spray. Over time that will give you a gummy build up that will turn your waffle maker to junk. Today, when a waffle maker makes the claim that it's non-stick, they really mean it. The only oil you need is the oil in the recipe. If your waffles are sticking, it's your batter that needs more oil, not your waffle maker.

  2. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, don't use soap to clean your baking plates. Soap can be the enemy of a non-stick surface. Oil - on the other hand - can be a great friend. It creates a thin layer that helps maintain the non-stick surface. Soap will completely obliterate that layer of friendly oil. Harsh soaps can deteriorate the manufacturer's non-stick surface over time.

Screws that hold bottom and top together have come out - appears that plastic that they screw into has melted

I repaired the broken "clamshell" of my Waring Pro WMK300 Professional Belgium Waffle Maker by replacing the original screws with a pair of (black metal) #8 x 1.125 inch flat-head machine screws and anti-vibration lock-nuts. These nuts have a nylon insert to prevent loosening. The assembly is now strong enough to pick up by the handle.
I drilled into the original plastic pits to create through-holes. I chose screws just long enough to fill the anti-vibration lock-nuts without protruding. You will need to hold each nut with a wrench or pliers while turning the screw into the nylon of the nut. Tighten just until the waffle iron assembly is snug, then another 1/8 turn. The torque should increase only during this last step.
The nuts are visible when I flip the iron, but I don't mind - they just remind me that the iron is now stronger than factory design.

Cuisinart Classic Round Waffle Iron

The screw that holds the metal cover to the grid is hidden under the black Cuisinart piece on the top. There are 4 ears which lock it down. I'm not sure the best way to get them open, as I broke mine opening it. Looks like if you take a metal putty knife, and push toward the hinge from the handle, at the end of the radius at each side, it may pop off for you. The other two are about 3/4" off the back of the piece, and should get out of the way as you lift the front.

Now, does anyone know where to get a replacement black cuisinart piece?

Proceed at your own risk, this information is worth what you paid for it, and I broke mine in the process.
