Question about Waring Pro WC1000 Coffee Maker

3 Answers

WC1000 GFI I have had 2 WC1000 units, The first lasted 6 months before a short developed inside the unit which triggered the GFI on the outlet. I moved the unit to a non GFI plug and it continued to work for about 2 weeks before it developed a leak externally. It was returned and replaced under warranty. Now the replacement unit is tripping the GFI again. Sounds like the same problem but now I am 3 weeks past the 1 year warranty. Is this a common problem or am I just unlucky?

    This is my 3rd coffee pot. The first two leaked and were replaced. Now the 3rd one is tripping the GFI plug. I has cost a lot of money to ship these two coffee pots back and now I have a 3rd one that will not work..

    have had the same problem on my 3rd pot and the company knows about the issue but does nothing about it.

    They should have their engineers fix it once and for all.

    This is a faulty product by Waring. I am on my second unit. I have had the leaking water problem and now it trips the GFCI and will not brew. Great concept by Waring for the everyday home user, but obviously needs an overhaul to correct the reoccurring problems.

    Mine just started doing the same thing, I am assuming it is due to an internal leak. It only happens when the ready light turns on, strange though that if I leave the water short with the add water light on, it seems to work great.

We have had ours for about a year and recently we heard a pop then smoke came out where you pour in water. I flushed it out and brown water came out. After the water cleared, I turned the machine back on and seemed to work fine except now the coffee has an burnt electical taste. Any suggestions on how to get the top of this thing open?

Ours is tripping the GFI if more than 4 cups of water is used. Opened the unit up and found the power distribution system is in the bottom of the unit and the bottom metal plate is grounded. Hence, it is tripping the GFI due to a leak.

You're not alone.  Same problem here.  Breakaway power cord on my Waring deep frier burnt to a crisp.  Don't known about you, but I'll never buy Waring products again.

Not cooling

is the freezer plugged into a gfi outlet? outlet may have tripped.
if there is power to the unit: (light on, fan running, etc.)
a large clump of frost around the lines/ top shelf, means it could be a leaker and will need to be replaced.
a clicking, humming noise repeating every few minutes could be a compressor start relay.
if the freezer has tripped the breaker, the compressor has developed an internal short and again would have to be replaced

No power to wall unit

Have you tried plugging anything else in?

Also does the cord have a GFI breaker on it, or is the outlet a GFI outlet, if those are tripped it will keep power from going to the unit. If they tripped more then likely they got wet, or there is a short circuit.

Otherwise if all that is good circuit breaker would be next to check.

The gfi trips every time I turn it on

Chances are while you have a 20amp circuit in your kitchen the gfi you are plugging into is rated at 15amps. First make sure your outlet is connected to a 20amp circuit breaker and then change out the gfi for a 20amp one. This coffee pot is more for commercial than residential usage, I had the same problem until I changed out the gfi plug.

the manufacturer recommends a 15 amp time delay breaker or fuse. Which means to me that a GFI outlet will not work on this unit. most of the time it just causes more problems than it is worth? I would only use those type of outlets if code required it.

GFI switch outlet may have damaged Kenmore 55771 side-by-side?

Could be the GFI switch.
The washer has a 3-prong (grounded) plug, what about the other appliances that you tested?
The GFI may not have a good ground and the 3-prong appliance provided a "difference" that the GFI detected as a "fault".

One leg of the power is "dead shorted" to ground. Use a Multimeter and start looking/testing to determine which component is bad.

Try plugging it into another GFI outlet. If it still trips, it's a problem with the coffee maker wiring and is cheaper to replace it than fit it.

A short condition has severed a conductor wire inside the coffee maker. Seems to be a common problem with coffee makers as the wires are in close proximity to heating devices.
