Question about VillaWare 2010 Waffle Maker

1 Answer

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 cooking them at a level 5 and the lights seem to be working as indicated on the instructions inbedded in the appliance?

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.

Diagram to replace thermal fuse in wmk 300 waring pro


The most common reason for thermal fuse failure is running the iron with the top open, especially when set to a higher number (longer cycle time) and/or not flipping the iron over at the strart of a cycle.

Keep it closed except during the 10-15 seconds needed when adding the batter or removing a waffle.

Thermal fuse 240C often available on ebay 4/$2 or Amazon 10/$7-$10

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 need a replacement handle for my Waring WMK300 Professional Belgian waffle maker. Where can I get one?


If it is out of warranty, you will need to ask for parts from a service center.
No one is offering broken, used or as-is WMK300 on ebay. Maybe you should try to sell your waffle maker on ebay as parts. Somebody must need the circuit board, for example.

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 Amazon.com at the following URL:

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 Amazon.com.

Waring Pro Waffle maker


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.

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.
