I have a pizzelle maker when do I know the right time to open & pour batter and when it is ready to be removed without burning


Some irons have one light that indicates that the heating element is on. I think that the Saulton iron has two lights. One light indicates that the iron is plugged in. The second light indicates that the heating element is on. You should wait until the second light goes off before trying to bake the first pizzelle. The second light will turn on and off as the thermostat regulates the heat. The cooking time depends on the pizzelle iron that you use. A good iron can bake a pizzelle in 30 seconds. The Salton iron WM8PZL takes up to 90 seconds for each cycle. Check the pizzelles after 30 seconds. The first pizzelles are seldom good. Experiment with the baking times to get the baking time right. After that keep up a steady pace to produce consistent results.
Early pizzelle irons were heated over open fires and made good pizzelles so with some practice you will be able to make pizzelles too.

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.

Indicator light shows the the heating element is on. Yes, it should be hot enough when the light goes off. The numbers at the following site may not match but you should be able to find the information that you need.

The waffle maker has two lights. A red one which indicates te power is on and a green one which lights up when it reaches the desired heat (and the thermostat circuit opens and the device stops heating...


There seems to be a problem with your thermostat or temp cutout switch if the machine is getting exceptionally hot. This could explain the green light not coming on.

Waffle iron light goes on gut does not heat up


The most common reason for not heating up is because of a blown thermal fuse. Apparently the controller lets the iron get too hot or the fuse is out of manufacturing tolerance - and so the fuse opens.
The green lamp is normally lit when the relay is off and dark when the relay is on. When cold, the relay normally turns on within a second of power-up (switched on). During power-up, the green (ready) lamp should flicker on, and then as the relay clicks, go dark. If the green (ready) lamp does not flicker, the fuse is probably blown.
The fuse is clamped inside the bottom clamshell in silicon tubing. A replacement fuse (240°C) can be purchased from many sources. The fuse should be re-attached to the wires with new all-metal crimp fasteners.
If the iron is getting too hot and blowing thermal fuses, you may be able to avoid this failure by keeping the thermostat set lower. (Turned a bit counter-clockwise.) If the waffles are no longer dark enough at the ready beep, you may have to use manual override by watching the steam and smelling the waffle.

Dead krups waffle iron


That is probably a thermal fuse. It is designed to open and stop heaters from working incase of over heat condition.

Meaning if you did not leave the appliance on too long with nothiung in it, the thermostat may be not opening at correct temp or the fuse was in a place where it got over heated or the fuse was weak.

You can replace it 1 time see if it worked ok but if it goes out again and you didn't see anything this time best replace it. Especially if under $50.00. Thermostat will probably run 1/2 of that. Thermal fuse 3 to 10. Try a heating AC parts store and take the old party with you.

If this helps you please help me by rating me as high as you can. Thanks for using fix ya.

Waffle iron light is on but doesn't heat up


The same thing just happened to my waffle iron. It worked great for a few months and then no heat.

I took it apart and found the problem. Waring used a thermal fuse instead of a thermostat. The fuse is located between the waffle iron and the stainless cover. The issue I saw is that cooking oil (spray) gets in between the cover and griddle and soaks into the insulation covering the thermal fuse. The oil heats up inside there and shorts the fuse.

Replacing the fuse is easy and it is available at Radio Shack for $1.70 (part number 270-1321). It's a 442 degreeF.

The hard part about this job is diassembly and reassembly. I had to take the entire iron apart just to get to the fuse. It took about an hour to take apart and an hour to reassemble. Changing the fuse took 5 minutes.

Good Luck,
Jim
