Question about Waring WMK300 Professional Belgian Waffle Maker

1 Answer

Heating element We got our Waring Pro waffle maker for Christmas and were very excited to use it, since we had not had homemade waffles for a few years. We used it twice and then one the third use, we made all but the last waffle, so I turned it back on and I waited and waited for the green light to come on. I finally checked and it wasn't even warm. I unplugged and turned it off, tried another outlet, still no heating up. Until it stopped heating we were very impressed by the performance of the appliance and the quality of its appearance.

I personnally just went through this.

If it is less than one year old, and you have the receipt, 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.

My replacement had a silver body virsus the original black body. The shop told me they have yet had a customer repeat of this problem.

It won't heat up

Throw this piece of **** in the trash. My first clue that it was a piece of **** was when I saw that it was made in China. I used my Waring Pro Model # WMK 300 a total of 6 times and then it died. From what I am gathering on the Internet this is a very common problem with the Belgium Waffle Iron. When it worked it was incrediable but use it 6 times and it goes belly up, this is so ridiculous. I personally think they should take this Waffle Iron off of the Market. I finally found the parts list for this Waffle Iron it did show the replacement Heating Element, but they have made it unavailable because they feel it is unsafe for the consumer replace it they feel you are to stupid to replace the Heating Element without harming yourself, give me a break this is a very simple fix for the average homeowner to take care of. I realize there are lidiots out there who might not be mechanically inclinded enought to to this. I think the average handy man can do this without any problem what so ever.

Will not heat.

There is a thermal fuse inside the bottom half of the unit, enclosed in a white insulating sleeve. This appears to be the weak part of the circuit. A replacement can be found here on

Just spray the grids before each use with something like Pam, or put a thin coat of oil on them. I found it's better to spray before each waffle so it won't stick.

You are wise to be cautious. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) needs to know about this situation, and your input, along with that of others, will be used to start an investigation.

Too much excitement just to enjoy waffles!
