Question about VillaWare 2010 Waffle Maker

Turns on but doesn't Cook

I was in the middle of cooking some waffles when all of a sudden the waffle maker stopped working. The light turns on, I hear a click but the ready light never comes on. I disconnected the waffle maker and tried again. Still doesn't work. This waffle maker is two months old.

    I actually decided that it wasn't fixable either so I brought it back to the store and they are ordering me a new one. However, I appreciate the information and that it confirms that it wasn't anything I did or could do to fix it.

    This just happened to me today. I was in the middle of making waffles for a group of people, and all of a sudden it stops working. I got about 5 waffles out of it, and then, poof, it starts to cool down. I tried unplugging and plugging it back in - no help. It just won't heat up anymore.



    I'm sad that I got this as a wedding gift - 4 years ago this May. I guess if I want a new one, I'll just have to get it for myself.

It sounds like this is a common poblem but I found what it is. I am a mechanical engineer and fix anything and everything. I had the same thing with my Villeware model 2010. I took it apart and traced with a meter to find the problem. I found the wires to the heating elements in the bottom half melted and shorted where they cross (bad design) just past an inline fuse ( good part of the design!). I can't find any place that carries parts and contacted Villaware direct but do not expect any luck in getting a new wire harness. The fix is either the proper harness or the correct fuse and high temp wire and correct crip connectors. Bypassing the fuse or using incorrect wire would be dangerous, would destroy the control board if another short would occur or possibly lethal from shock or fire.

Sounds like the Thermo safety limit has gone out. This goes out when the theromstat goes bad. There is no service done on this product. Call the company about getting a replacement while it is still under warranty.

I have a green light and a red. what do they mean?


Red means that it has power. Green means the heating element is on. The green light will cycle on and off as the thermostat controls the temperature. Allow the iron to heat til the green light goes off before adding batter. Watch for steam coming from the iron. When the steam stops the waffle should be done. Keep track of the time that it takes to cook. Experiment with cooking time for the best results.

I am trying to make a pizza waffle from a recipe but the waffles spilt everytime? Its sticking half the batter to both sides of the machine while still feels moist in middle. Im not opening the maker at...


I found the coating on the sunbeam to be less than impressive in regards to nonstickiness, so I use pam with it and have way fewer sticking probs. As to the doneness issue, if it's not actually burning then try to let it cook longer even if the light goes out. Hope this was a little bit helpful at least:)

Only one side of waffle maker will cook


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.

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
