The most common reason for thermal fuse failure is running the iron with the top open, especially when set to a higher number (longer cycle time) and/or not flipping the iron over at the strart of a cycle.

Keep it closed except during the 10-15 seconds needed when adding the batter or removing a waffle.

Thermal fuse 240C often available on ebay 4/$2 or Amazon 10/$7-$10

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 goes...no 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

SOURCE: Waffle Iron Handle Broken - Need Replacement

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.

There are wires that are exposed because of poor wires that seem to crack under heat or oil or both I am calling the factory now that I have opened it up and found a FIRE HAZARD inside

SOURCE: Will not heat.

There is a thermal fuse inside the bottom half of the unit, enclosed in a white insulating sleeve. This appears to be the weak part of the circuit. A replacement can be found here on Amazon.com.

Remove 4 Black Phillips Screws 2 on the front near the handle that flips Use a Good fitting Screwdriver These screws have a thread locker on them. They will strip the heads out if proper care is not used when removing them.Then remove the two screws at the rear of the Iron Just rear of the cooking surface. This will remove the chrome cover on the bottom of the cooking surface exposing the wiring. The thermal fuse is located under a section of insulation under a clamp held in by another Phillips screw.Do not cut or Damage the insulation. Gently pull it back exposing the fuse. After replacing the fuse, insulation ,Clamp and screws check to be sure the iron heats and cycles on and off and the ready light works properly. If it does not cycle the new fuse will blow . Good luck

It won't heat up


Throw this piece of **** in the trash. My first clue that it was a piece of **** was when I saw that it was made in China. I used my Waring Pro Model # WMK 300 a total of 6 times and then it died. From what I am gathering on the Internet this is a very common problem with the Belgium Waffle Iron. When it worked it was incrediable but use it 6 times and it goes belly up, this is so ridiculous. I personally think they should take this Waffle Iron off of the Market. I finally found the parts list for this Waffle Iron it did show the replacement Heating Element, but they have made it unavailable because they feel it is unsafe for the consumer replace it they feel you are to stupid to replace the Heating Element without harming yourself, give me a break this is a very simple fix for the average homeowner to take care of. I realize there are lidiots out there who might not be mechanically inclinded enought to to this. I think the average handy man can do this without any problem what so ever.

Waffle iron light goes on gut does not heat up


The most common reason for not heating up is because of a blown thermal fuse. Apparently the controller lets the iron get too hot or the fuse is out of manufacturing tolerance - and so the fuse opens.
The green lamp is normally lit when the relay is off and dark when the relay is on. When cold, the relay normally turns on within a second of power-up (switched on). During power-up, the green (ready) lamp should flicker on, and then as the relay clicks, go dark. If the green (ready) lamp does not flicker, the fuse is probably blown.
The fuse is clamped inside the bottom clamshell in silicon tubing. A replacement fuse (240°C) can be purchased from many sources. The fuse should be re-attached to the wires with new all-metal crimp fasteners.
If the iron is getting too hot and blowing thermal fuses, you may be able to avoid this failure by keeping the thermostat set lower. (Turned a bit counter-clockwise.) If the waffles are no longer dark enough at the ready beep, you may have to use manual override by watching the steam and smelling the waffle.

My waffle iron no longer heats up.just a red light


Had the same problem with the WMK300 that others are reporting. Plug it in, hear the click, red light goes on but unit does not heat up. Found the thermal fuse in the white insulation on the bottom unit. Found replacement at Radio Shack (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102788). Works great!

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,
Jim

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 Mouser.com for $1.41 plus shipping.
