WWM200PC Waffle Maker will turn on but does not heat up

Waffle maker does not heat up after it is turned on. We received this as a Christmas gift and have only used this maybe 10 - 12 times. What is the warranty on this product? Is there a reset button to apply? to reset the power Bought mine from Sams Club after seeing how great my sister's worked (and terrible the one we got from Target worked don't remember brand). Used it 4 or 5 times and it quit in the middle of cooking a waffle. I bought it in April 2007 so it is out of warranty. Took it apart and tested the thermal fuse which is blown. Will check with Waring Customer Service to see what they will do. As listed here a replacement part is less than $10 from

    I took it apart and it is the thermal fuse that is mentioned under the WWM200PC thread. I called Waring Customer service and they said they would replace it. It appears to me to be a well known problem with this product.

    My Cuisinart waffle maker is a WAF RC. Less than one year old. Hadn't used it for 5 months. Plugged it in, it made a clicking sound when I turned the dial, like it was turning on, but no lights and no heat. Unfortunatly for me I don't have the receipt, it was a gift. Came from Canadian tire.

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

Check to ensure that all electrical connections are secure enough. Also, check the heating element. This should be done when the appliance is off (well duh, of course)

On my second use the ready light cover melted. Is it safe to use the waffle maker? Can this product be replaced?

I don't know much about waffle makers but indicator bulbs and their housing should never ever melt like that!! The product is not safe to use in this condition. I would suggest the heat from the waffle elements has somehow escaped into the waffle inards and melted other parts as well. You are entitled to a new replacement if it is only weeks old.

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.

Waffles sticking to waring pro waffle maker no matter how much spray I apply. Help! thank you

I have had a bad experience with some corn oil spray. The oil (and corn syrup) built up into a crusty and sticky layer. I had to use oven cleaner to strip it back down to the non-stick surface. Now I just use soybean oil with a natural boar's hair pastry brush. (Synthetic will melt!) I heat the waffle maker at the last moment possible. Heat turns oil into varnish. I oil the surface just before the first cup of batter. I like to scrub oil with the brush into all the dry looking areas. If your batter has 1 Tbs (soybean) oil per waffle, that may be all you need for the entire batch. Turn off the heat promptly. I don't wash the oil out of the non-stick surface unless it builds up.

Waffle maker won't heat

There is a thermal fuse inside the bottom half of the unit, enclosed in a white insulating sleeve. A replacement can be found on at the following URL:

Broken shaft

I made a template of the shaft, cut out a sturdy piece of tin to straddle the break, and then screwed that piece in at both ends after securely fitting the break together. A lot of work, but the waffle maker works great!

Waring Wafflemaker power light comes on but won't heat up

My just over 1-year old WWM200SA did the same thing while I was cooking with it (used it about 5 times). I found a solution under the WWM200PC thread that the thermal fuse blew early. I tested mine and that's what happened. It is a cheap part, but I called Waring Customer service (800-269-6640) instead and they said to send it in for replacement.

Heating element

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.

WWM200PC Waffle Maker will turn on but does not heat up

I fixed one of these for a friend - the problem was an open thermal fuse. This fuse is located in the fixed grill; it is clamped to the grill and is covered by a white plastic sleeve.

The replacement part should be a 240°C/464°F 10 - 15 Amp thermal fuse. NTE sells a part NTE8242 which works available from for $1.41 plus shipping.
