Question about Waring WMK300 Professional Belgian Waffle Maker
When plugged in light turns on, but waffle iron doesn't heat.
Posted by Anonymous on
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

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

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
