How to Clean Your Toaster

Most Toasters Old and New have a trap door. Some have trays to catch the bread crumbs which can burn and even catch fire if not removed on a regular basis. Just open the trap door over a trash can and brush the crumbs away. Never put oils on the bread before toasting. This could cause a fire. Always unplug the toaster when finished.Not only will this help keep bills down but it can also make sure your toaster is not the cause of an electrical fire while unattended.

how to clean the inside of a toaster


Slide the bottom door under the toaster and it will open, I would suggest doing it over a waste can or sink. You can take a small thin brush and get the crumbs out. Then your toaster will be back in working order. Crumbs that are stuck in the bottom of the tray is what causes it to burn the toast.

Tthe lever on my Braun HT 600 toaster won't stay down. 3 years old, but very moderate use. Ideas?


Be sure to unplug toaster first. While inverting your toaster, depress the toaster lever(s) and shake toaster to clear all bread crumbs. It can take up to several minutes of shaking to clear them completely, however, the key is to depress the toaster levers down at the same time. Also, remember to remove bread crumb trays and empty regularly, as the trays are too shallow and allow crumbs to build up quickly, thereby blocking the "locking mechanism" of the lever(s).

If after cleaning your toaster out thoroughly, the levers still won't remain depressed, try various outlets throughout your kitchen. Oftentimes, when one GFI (Ground Fault Indicator) trips, several outlets along the same circuit will also trip.

Also, there is a website called Manuals.com, which has a very good database of many manuals for various manufacturers and models of toasters, should all of the above efforts fail.

I did all of the above and fixed my toaster within five minutes. :- )

Good luck to you.

How do i get the old timer out and put in the new?


First unplug the toaster. Remove the crumb tray. Turn toaster over and remove the 4 rubber feet an 2 other screws holding the bottom on. this will expose the works and the back of the timer.
Gently pry the knob off evenly on both side this will expose 2 screws holding the timer to the toaster. Remove the screws the timmer is now loose for removal.
