Question about VillaWare 2010 Waffle Maker
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.
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.
