Question about Waring WMK300 Professional Belgian Waffle Maker

1 Answer

I opened it up before it beeped, now it won't work.

I didn't read the instructions that say not to open it up before the timer beeps because it will throw it all out of sinc. Is there a "reset" solution to this problem?

I lost the instructions for my sunbeam waffle maker, and I dont know how long Ihave to bake it.

Here is a direct link to the User's Manual for your appliance:

To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 2 of the manual for detailed operating instructions. Basically they read as follows:

Preparing Waffles

1. Close Waffle Maker and plug into outlet. Use only voltage specified on bottom of Waffle Maker. The Power light (Red) and Ready light (Green) will come on.
Caution: Touch Waffle Maker only by handles during use or directly after use. Take care not to touch hot surfaces.

2. The Waffle Maker is ready for initial use when the Ready (green) light goes out (approximately 2-4 minutes).

3. Open Waffle Maker, pour approximately 3/4 cup waffle batter onto grids. For best results, pour batter around outer edge of waffle maker. Close cover. It is very typical to have a small amount of batter run over grid and down Waffle Maker. However, if an excessive amount of batter runs over, use less batter.

4. Close the Waffle Maker by lowering the upper plate onto the lower plate and secure with the safety latch. Do not open cover while steam is escaping. Most waffles bake in approximately 2-4 minutes, depending on personal taste. Waffles are generally done when the Ready light (green) goes out and when steam no longer escapes from sides and front of Waffle Maker.

5. When waffles are done, remove with a fork or wooden tongs. Note: Be careful you do not scratch the non-stick cooking surface.

6. Close cover and wait for Ready light to go out before preparing another batch of waffles. The next waffle may be baked in less time because the plate will store heat.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

I received the Professional Belgian Waffle maker as a gift and have only used it twice. During the second use, about the third waffle, the heating element stopped working. What would cause this? I was...

I think this was caused by the premature failure of a Chinese thermal fuse; they are poorly made and while the principle is sound (opens if necessary to prevent fire), the components are really poor and most appliances that use a heating element fail without cause due to the lousy quality of those parts. Because of the high levels of heat where these are mounted, they are most often spot-welded in series with the element and cannot be soldered in repair. Try contacting the manufacturer, I'm pretty sure they know of the problem.

I had continue beep sound when I turn on power. Can you help?

Beep sound indicates that the timer is finished and can be stopped by pressing start/stop button, however, it is not normal to hear continuous beep sound upon switching on the unit. Try to check if the timer button is not stuck and or check if you have programmed time.

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.

Our fridge, SIDE BY SIDE BUILT-IN REFRIGERATOR-kitchen aid KSRT25CRWH01 freezer is working but not refrigerator, How do fix it

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Nordic ware Belgiam Waffler maker

This is how I use the nordic ware...

1.Heat pan on medium heat on one side until temp gauge is in the middle. Dont turn pan at all when pre-heating
2. Open pan and coat bottom with a little butter.
3. Flip pan over and add butter to bottom side that has no butter.
4. Add batter quickly so butter doent burn. Add semi-thick batter in pan and only let batter run so there is about 1 inch of space left on the edge.(This space will fill with batter when you close the cover)
5. Temperature gauge should stay near the middle at all times.
6. Do not open the pan to check the batter waffle color or your crispy waffle will turn soft
7. Let waffle cook on first side until the steam that comes out from the side slows down to about half of the amount of steam that came out when battle was first put in. (Should be about 2 minutes)
8. Turn waffle pan over and DON’T open the pan.(you haven’t opened the pan once to look)

9. Let cook until steam reduces (Takes about 2 minutes)
10. Keep an eye on the temp gauge
11.Remember the first waffle always takes longer to cook than the second and third waffle.
12. If you have the urge to open the pan. Open the cover slowly. If it doesn’t open up easily then it is still rare and wait one minute to open. If you need to look, you should only open the pan after you turned it over. Once you open the pan, leave it open. If you close it the cripy top will turn soft.
13. Remember trial and error
