Electrical Requirements

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
This waffl e maker is designed for use with 120 V, 60 Hz only. It
has a 3-prong grounded plug. To reduce the risk of electrical
shock, this plug will fi t in an outlet only one way. If the plug does
not fi t in the outlet, contact a qualifi ed electrician. Do not modify
the plug in any way.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk
resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer
cord. Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is
too short, have a qualifi ed electrician or service technician install
an outlet near the appliance.

Service Preparation

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
Cushion the service area to keep from scratching the waffl e
baker or damaging the controls and display surfaces. A clean
folded towel will usually work well for this purpose.
TESTING THE WAFFLE BAKER
In some situations you will have to test the performance of the
waffl e baker to identify and diagnose the problem.
4
PERFORMANCE
You can observe the performance of a waffl e baker by
establishing benchmarks on the performance seen on prior
waffl e bakers. Here is a list of performance parameters to
observe.
EXAMPLE: Bake time: 3 minutes 30 seconds (3:30)
Bake temperature: 350º F
Time to Bake Two Waffl es – Measure the time needed to bake
two waffl es (one cup batter each) on the two waffl e plates.
Longer baking times will produce darker, crispier waffl es.
For your fi rst waffl es, a good starting time is 3 minutes, 30
seconds. The baking time can be set in 15-second increments
from a minimum of 2 minutes, 30 seconds to maximum of 5
minutes, 30 seconds.
Waffl e Plate Temperature – Pre-heat waffl e baker, then
measure the temperature on each waffl e plate.

Service Procedures

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
Perform all service on the Pro Line™ Waffl e Baker with the unit
disconnected from the AC mains.
CLAMSHELL BAKING UNIT REPLACEMENT
The clamshell unit is not replaceable – we do not replace top or
bottom lids, waffl e plates or heating elements.
TIMER ADJUSTMENT KNOB REPLACEMENT
The timer adjustment knob sets the baking time in 15-second
increments from 2 minutes and 30 seconds (2:30) to 5 minutes
and 30 seconds (5:30). Turn knob clockwise to increase baking
time; turn counter-clockwise to decrease baking time.
1. Unplug the waffl e baker.
2. Place the waffl e baker upside down on a cushioned surface.
3. Remove four (4) recessed Phillips screws from feet and two
(2) recessed Phillips screws from base cover.
4. Remove one Phillips screw from the ferrite bead fastener.
Then remove the 5-pin connector from the power PCB. This
will allow for easy access to the control PCB.
5. LIft off base.
