Sounds like either cord that passes power from one side to the other at the hinge had broken, or the heating element in the side not getting hot has failed.

There is no easy way to repair either of these problems without strong knowledge of making repairs to high temperature wiring.

How to Select a Waffle Iron
1

Determine what type of cooking you'll be doing. If you're planning on preparing one waffle at a time, for example, then the smallest model of waffle iron will be the best fit for you. On the other hand, if you plan on frequent entertaining, or if you have a larger family, you'll probably want to choose a deluxe model.
2

Decide on the type of waffle maker that you'd like to own. There are a number of these available, ranging from simple differences---round versus square, for example. Some feature removable cooking elements that can be replaced with others, such as grilled sandwich attachments.

3

Take the varying grades of quality available in waffle makers into account when choosing one. This point may seem obvious---choose the highest quality waffle iron, right? Not necessarily. If you plan to use your waffle maker on rare occasions, say, once every couple of months, then you won't need the highest quality available. Waffle making several times monthly, however, will warrant a sturdier model with thicker non-stick coating applications applied to the cooking elements.
4

Consider the cleanup aspects of each waffle iron that you're comparing. Some waffle irons feature removable cooking elements; this is a tremendous benefit when cleanup time comes around, as it is much easier to clean the grill elements separately than attached to the entire waffle iron.
5

Take brand into account when making a decision. Brands with a reputation for high quality are usually more expensive than lesser-known labels. However, this doesn't mean that an "unknown" brand can't produce a good product. When taking this aspect into consideration keep in mind the requirements that you need and purchase a waffle iron accordingly. Additionally, many celebrity chefs have endorsed cooking products---including waffle irons---which adds a little more cost to the product. Finding the company's non-endorsed model of waffle iron will mean the same quality at less cost.

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:

http://dl.owneriq.net/d/db0acd4e-57c1-43f0-a51b-4ef04ad30e2d.pdf


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.

Joe.

I have a pre owned wm-4. No owner's manual. Can the plates be removed for cleaning?


These instructions are taken from a WM14 waffle maker, maybe they will work for you. It doesn't say anything about removing the plates:

"Wipe Cooking Plates with absorbent paper
towel or a soft cloth. Although the Cooking Plates are coated
with a non-stick coating, some batter or ingredients may still adhere
to the Waffle Maker. To remove, simply pour a little cooking oil onto
the baked-on food. Allow to stand for 5 to 10 minutes. This should
soften the food and make it easy to remove with absorbent paper
towel or a soft cloth. If the preceding measure fails to remove the
food residue, we suggest wiping the Cooking Plates with a slightly
dampened cloth and a little non-abrasive detergent."

Cleaning your waffle iron WPLT4


c.gif c.gif





Let me start by telling you WHAT NOT TO DO.
  1. Never clean a waffle maker while it's still hot. Let it cool completely.

  2. Never dunk your entire waffle maker in water.

  3. Never use scouring pads, steel wool or abrasive cleansers.

  4. Never use a knife or pointed object to clean your waffle maker(I've actually seen that advised on less reputable sites).

When it comes to cleaning a waffle maker, your first source of information should always be the owner's manual. There are many different kinds of waffle makers, so your buddy Mr Breakfast will gladly defer his expertise to the company that makes your waffle maker.





What I can speak about is my own favorite waffle iron. It's a modern electric waffle iron with non-stick and non-removable baking plates. That's the same kind you have? Oh good. It looks like you came to the right guy.

Cleaning the baking plates:
  1. Remove any small puddles of oil with a dry paper towel.

  2. Brush away any crumbs with a soft-bristled kitchen brush or old toothbrush.

  3. Remove any batter stuck to the iron with a rubber spatula.

  4. To remove really-stuck-on batter, douse the baked-on batter with cooking oil. Wait 5 minutes for the batter to soften. Dab the batter off with a paper towel or cloth.

  5. To prevent staining and long-term oil build up, wipe down the baking plates with a damp cloth or paper towel.

  6. Make sure the waffle iron is completely dry before storing.

To clean the exterior, wipe down the housing and handle with a damp cloth.


Keeping it clean:

There are a couple things to remember to make sure our kind of waffle maker stays clean.

  1. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, you should never coat the baking plates of a non-stick waffle iron with cooking spray. Over time that will give you a gummy build up that will turn your waffle maker to junk. Today, when a waffle maker makes the claim that it's non-stick, they really mean it. The only oil you need is the oil in the recipe. If your waffles are sticking, it's your batter that needs more oil, not your waffle maker.

  2. Unless stated otherwise in the manufacturer's instructions, don't use soap to clean your baking plates. Soap can be the enemy of a non-stick surface. Oil - on the other hand - can be a great friend. It creates a thin layer that helps maintain the non-stick surface. Soap will completely obliterate that layer of friendly oil. Harsh soaps can deteriorate the manufacturer's non-stick surface over time.

ProLine waffle maker sticking. Followed all direction from factory. No Pam used.


The plates on the waffle maker need to have some sort of cooking oil or butter to lubricate and prevent your waffle mix from sticking.

Spray some PAM on the plates once the correct temperature has been reached, or alternatively brush on a little melted butter or vegetable oil. Pour in your waffle mix and when cooked the waffle should lift straight off.

FIrst, make sure there is some kind of fat or oil in the waffle batter recipe. This is the biggest difference between waffle and pancake batter. Go to Sams or a restaurant supply store and get a spray product like waffle-off. Spray lightly aftter every few waffles. Use lightly as heavy spray can cause build up. If you can't find this product use one of the PAM type sprays for BBQ grills or maybe an olive oil based product. Regular Pam sprays build up faster as they are not really designed for this. Don't try to wash the grids between uses as they need to keep the oil coating. (Like using a cast iron skillet) They will turn a dark brown. Just brush off crumbs or use a damp rag. Make sure the waffles are completely cooked as when not completely cooked they will seperate and be very difficult to remove. They are cooked when the steam stops coming from the sides. This will take 3 - 6 minutes. Don't preheat with the iron open or allow it to stand open for any longer than necessary. (It can overheat)

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
