The waffles are still undercooked on one side, and we think the middle heating element may be gone. Can this element/part be replaced?

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.

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.

Tried to make waffles for the first time. They consistently burned in the middle. Added milk to the batter. Still burned in the middle, barely cooked on the outside.


Sounds like you might not have let it warm up enough. These usually heat from the inside out. So they heat up and then take a few minutes for the emtire surface to be hot.

Turn it on and let it heat up while you make your mix up. Or a good 10 minutes. Give it a spray of pam or equivilent on both sides if you want and then make some waffles. If you want to experiment a bit try dropping a drop of water on the middle and outside. When they boil or his about the same your are hot enough.

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.

My waffle iron no longer heats up.just a red light


Had the same problem with the WMK300 that others are reporting. Plug it in, hear the click, red light goes on but unit does not heat up. Found the thermal fuse in the white insulation on the bottom unit. Found replacement at Radio Shack (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102788). Works great!

Call customer service for repair. If they will not repair you can get a replacement fuse.

Waffle iron top not heating


I don't know for your model type, but in many of these the heating element can be replaced. Check with an ohm meter to know if the element is actually defective, or if it is the thermo safety cutoff fuse that is blown.

If you were to do this yourself, and you know about appliance servicing, have instruments to check for proper temperature and current draw, and you will need the proper crimp-fittings (stake-ons), and crimp tool to do any of the wiring inside.

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

Turns on but doesn't Cook


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.
