3.0 out of 5 stars I know how to fix this maker when it stops working, January 7, 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Waring Pro WMK300A Professional Stainless-Steel Belgian Waffle Maker (Kitchen)
I have had this waffle maker for a little over a year so it is now out of warranty. It just stopped heating up last weekend. After some online research I found out what goes wrong. When I plug mine in the orange light turns on and you can hear the relay click but it does not get hot. If you are experiencing this problem and you are out of warranty please don't throw out your waffle maker. It can be fixed and the part is only $1.50. The part you need is a thermal fuse and it can be found under the round stainless cover of the lower griddle. It is a 250v 240 degree celsius thermal fuse. It is covered by a white silicon tube. Apparently this thermal fuse overheats and blows and power no longer gets to the burners. I have replaced the fuse and my waffle maker works again. This is a really great product but they either have the wrong size fuse in the unit or it was defective. Mine blew when I made a batch of waffles, turned off the unit and then turned it back on to make a second batch. It never heated back up. I kept my temperature control at 3.5. I hope this helps all you waffltiers out there. Also, the golden waffle mix is the best and you need to buy an isi brand whip cream dispenser. You add two pints of heavy whipping cream and three table spoons of powdered sugar and have the best whip cream for those tasty waffles. If you have questions leave me a comment and I will check back.

Shops a lot says:
We have experienced this problem with 3 of these waffle makers. The first time I returned it to the merchant for exchange. The second time Waring sent a replacement after the defective one was returned to them. It has now happened a third time and am very disappointed. All of this is within 12 months of the first purchase. Where can the fuses be purchased?? Thanks.

Mine just bit it this morning. Threw it in the trash and just retrieved it to do your fix. Thanks for the info. I love mine and was really bummed out this morning.

First of all - thanks so much for taking the time to write this review. It saved me a lot of money on buying a new waffle maker. I bought a few fuses -- just in case!
The problem now is that the cheap screws they use are beginning to strip when I take them out and put them back in. Have you noticed this problem as well - and/or have you been able to find a place to get new ones?

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Mine is under warranty but this beats sending it back and waiting for it to come back. And thanks also for pointing out that amazon sells the fuse. I was about to ask about that. BTW, which golden mix are you referring to? Can you please provide the brand or a pointer?
