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.

    Swing
    open the upper half (with handle) and remove the four screws on the
    bottom half. Now close the top and flip. You should be
    able to remove the metal cover from the bottom half.



    The
    fuse is clamped inside the bottom clamshell in silicon tubing near
    the hinge. Do not damage this tubing. Remove the clamp over the
    silicon tubing. Slide the tubing to the side and cut the
    stranded wire close to the fuse. Remove the tubing and cut the
    other stranded wire close to the fuse.
    Be
    careful not to nick the wire when you strip off insulation.



    The
    fuse should be re-attached to the wires with new all-metal crimp
    fasteners (omit plastic covers). Don't forget to reinstall the
    silicon tubing before you crimp! Tighten the clamp over the
    fuse (inside the tubing).



    Reassemble in reverse order.

    The cover doesn't want to lift off. It seems to be stuck under (?) the handle.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Waring Waffle Maker no heat

Remove 4 Black Phillips Screws 2 on the front near the handle that flips Use a Good fitting Screwdriver These screws have a thread locker on them. They will strip the heads out if proper care is not used when removing them.Then remove the two screws at the rear of the Iron Just rear of the cooking surface. This will remove the chrome cover on the bottom of the cooking surface exposing the wiring. The thermal fuse is located under a section of insulation under a clamp held in by another Phillips screw.Do not cut or Damage the insulation. Gently pull it back exposing the fuse. After replacing the fuse, insulation ,Clamp and screws check to be sure the iron heats and cycles on and off and the ready light works properly. If it does not cycle the new fuse will blow . Good luck

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.

KitchenAid Proline Waffle Maker doesn't cool down when turned off


You should always unplug a waffle iron because other wise there is a constant direct current to the iron element which if left unattended could cause a fire damage and/or death, any heating element that you cannot break the current(unlike a stove) needs to be unplugged because of the danger and the juice it is also pulling from the power company that you are paying more money for. That goes for all heating elements irons,toasters,fryers,curling irons, even hair dryers **** juice. Let me know if this helps and GOD bless goofballlovers

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
