You my friend have an internal short and should not be using that coffee maker. Either send it in to be repaired or replace the maker.

I have a kalorik heart shaped waffle maker and on the first use, after the first waffle, the waffle iron stopped working. i was wondering if there was something i could do to reset it or if i should just...


Check the outlet that it was plugged into. If you used it in a kitchen it may have been plugged into a GFI outlet (Ground Fault Interrupter). If the safety device in the outlet failed, or there was more than one heating type appliance used on the outlet or a standard wall outlet. Then you may have simply triggered the circuit breaker that addresses this device. For example, If you had the coffee maker on, or the toaster, or the microwave oven on. Using an additional appliance would pop the breaker.
Here are the possible solutions. TRY your waffle maker in another outlet. If it was plugged into a GFI wall outlet, then find the "reset button" on the outlet and push it. If it clicks, it means that it had tripped. NOW HERE IS AN IMPORTANT POINT TO FOLLOW. If you reset the GFI and plug in the Waffle Maker, then turn it on and the outlet pops off. there is a wiring defect in the waffle Iron.
If you don't have a GFI and you plug the waffle iron into a standard outlet and turn it on and it trips the breaker, then same thing. A defect in the Waffle Iron. Now if you plug the waffle iron into a good circuit and it works again. Then it was a matter of the outlet being overloaded by too many small appliances.
Very common problem. Not serious. Just reset the breaker. Or if it's a fuse, replace it.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

The gfi trips every time I turn it on


Chances are while you have a 20amp circuit in your kitchen the gfi you are plugging into is rated at 15amps. First make sure your outlet is connected to a 20amp circuit breaker and then change out the gfi for a 20amp one. This coffee pot is more for commercial than residential usage, I had the same problem until I changed out the gfi plug.

When i plug it in it trips my gfi and it is not on


This can be caused by one of two things. (1) The GFI plug has a problem: it could be broken behind the face plate, or some of the wires in the box are so close that when you push a plug into the outlet, they touch and trip the GFI. (2) The other source is due to a defect in the appliance between the cord and the power switch. That is why the GFI faults even before it the coffee maker is turned on.

Have the outlet checked thoroughly and make any needed adjustments / repair /replacement and reconnect the coffee maker again. If it trips, the coffee maker will need to be serviced. DO NOT use the coffee maker in another non-GFI outlet until it has been checked out. The chances of electrical shock or burns is significant until the problem is found and corrected.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Hello

Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

Keeps tripping GFI outlets


The key here is to identify the problem as being either the coffee maker or the GFI receptacle... a simple test can be done as follows...
Try plugging the Coffee Maker into another GFI receptacle .. you may have one in the bathroom? If it trips that too, then you have an internal wiring problem with your coffee maker.. if it doesn;t ..then your GFI receptacle may be bad or on the verge of going bad .. either way..this should narrow the problem down to one or the other.. hope this helps..

Try plugging it into another GFI outlet. If it still trips, it's a problem with the coffee maker wiring and is cheaper to replace it than fit it.
