Re: Same thing, power light comes on, but no heat

I'm with you. This site is a real joke. It is obvious these waffle irons are faulty to say the least, and no one out there has any idea why. To bad. It would be realy nice if they actually worked.

The waffle maker has two lights. A red one which indicates te power is on and a green one which lights up when it reaches the desired heat (and the thermostat circuit opens and the device stops heating...

There seems to be a problem with your thermostat or temp cutout switch if the machine is getting exceptionally hot. This could explain the green light not coming on.

Waring pro Waffle Maker has no power

One thing missing from my WMK300 is a circuit breaker or replaceable fuse. Apparently your wiring became the fuse. Please read and understand my entire Answer before starting.
>>This answer is only for technicians proficient in soldering, with safety training in testing 120 VAC circuits and with an understanding of insulation temperature ratings. Memorize the average torque required to loosen each type of screw and do not exceed that torque when tightening.<<
It is likely that the wires leading to the heating elements are defective. You must open the top and bottom clamshells to inspect the wires inside there. Look for melted insulation, cracked stand-off insulation posts, etc. You will have to repair the obvious problems before the next steps.
>> It is helpful to have a multimeter to test resistance. The heating elements should not have continuity to the metal chassis or ground wire. The resistance of the heating elements should be in a sensible range given the wattage rating of this appliance.<<
If the wire under the damaged insulation is in great condition, you may just repair the insulation. In the base, you may use normal wiring insulation since this area stays cool. I recommend slipping some larger diameter insulation over the wire. (Strip this off a larger diameter wire.) In the hot clamshells, you must use high-temperature insulation like the woven fiberglass sheath used in toasters and ovens.
The two white heavy gauge wires connect to "N" (neutral) and "H2" (heater lead 2). The two black wires connect to "L" (line power) and "H1" (heater lead 1). If only one wire came off you should be able to find the correct solder point to reattach.
This circuit board is not replaceable and there are no components on the circuit board that should be capable of drawing enough current to melt the power wires. However, if you cannot find bad wiring elsewhere, inspect the circuit board for solder droplets, bits of wire, screws, bent components, etc. that may cause shorts. Look for overheated circuit board, traces or components.
>>To remove the circuit board on my WMK300, the temperature control knob is left intact on the control panel. Do not remove it. The circuit board lifts off the shaft of the control knob when it is removed from the chassis. Test the knob motion when mating it to the circuit board.<<
Almost all components except the potentiometer and the 8-pin microprocessor controller "U1" are easy to purchase online.

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.

Waring Pro Waffle Maker

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 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

Waring Wafflemaker power light comes on but won't heat up

My just over 1-year old WWM200SA did the same thing while I was cooking with it (used it about 5 times). I found a solution under the WWM200PC thread that the thermal fuse blew early. I tested mine and that's what happened. It is a cheap part, but I called Waring Customer service (800-269-6640) instead and they said to send it in for replacement.

Waffle iron light is on but doesn't heat up

The same thing just happened to my waffle iron. It worked great for a few months and then no heat.

I took it apart and found the problem. Waring used a thermal fuse instead of a thermostat. The fuse is located between the waffle iron and the stainless cover. The issue I saw is that cooking oil (spray) gets in between the cover and griddle and soaks into the insulation covering the thermal fuse. The oil heats up inside there and shorts the fuse.

Replacing the fuse is easy and it is available at Radio Shack for $1.70 (part number 270-1321). It's a 442 degreeF.

The hard part about this job is diassembly and reassembly. I had to take the entire iron apart just to get to the fuse. It took about an hour to take apart and an hour to reassemble. Changing the fuse took 5 minutes.

Good Luck,

WMK300 turns on but doest not heat up

the problem is an open thermal fuse. This fuse is located in the fixed grill; it is clamped to the grill and is covered by a white plastic sleeve.

The replacement part should be a 240°C/464°F 10 - 15 Amp thermal fuse. NTE sells a part NTE8242 which works available from for $1.41 plus shipping.
