Just purchased toaster oven model CE23551 and it did not have a crumb tray as advertised on the box and owner manual. Why is there no crumb tray ?

This model does NOT come with a crumb tray. In order to remove the crumbs from the bottom it must be shaken (like a toaster). I understand that this may be a little inconvenient; however, this machine is made relatively light weight for that purpose.

How do I remove the upper housing assembly to clean out the toaster? I have a KitchenAid model KTT340OB

In the event that you DO need to take it apart, my KTT570 had two of the six screws hidden by rubber feet on the bottom of the toaster. Remove the feet by carefully prying them out with a very small straight-slot screw driver. They are essentially just rubber plugs about 3/4 of an inch in length. They are located on the end from which the crumb-tray is extracted. There are ONLY six screws so don't remove the rubber feet on the opposite end. You will need to remove the darkness knob and the handle from the end of the toast-lowering mechanism prior to removing the cover.

Dualit combi heating element 12/95

All the element's are available on e-bay u.k. for about 6.00 gbp. Alternativley you may be able to repair it. Put the toaster on it's side with the bottom facing towards you and the knobs on the top. Remove the crumb tray and then remove the bottom (usually the screws are located in the feet). There may be one more visible screw remove that too, then you will see a rail at the bottom that secures the element's in place. Loosen off the nuts at each end and slide the rail down, undo the two bolt's feeding the power to the element's and slide the element out.Go over it with a continuity meter and see where it's broken then move the element wire about to bridge the circuit.Test it again and reassemble. I repaired mine this way.Or, simply replace the element using the instructions above.Easy!

My Krups model 288 toaster won't always latch down.

You can fix this yourself by following these instructions. Unplug your toaster before proceeding!... Clean the toaster first. Turn the toaster upside-down and shake out the crumbs. Remove and clean the bottom crumb tray. 1. Unscrew the four Phillips head screws located in the corners of the bottom base. Remove the screws completely if possible. Do this over a cloth or newspaper - that way a stuck screw won't get lost if it falls out later. 2. With the toaster right-side up, pull off the wide toast lever knob. Do not remove the round adjustment knob (it will not come off from the outside) but make a mental note of what number (1-7) is showing at the knob's adjustment mark. 3. Carefully pry up the end of the case cover with the knob on it (don't pull on the "stop" button). When the knob's plastic shaft is clear of the circuit board, gently pull off the cover. 4. On the inner part of the circuit board you will see a black plastic "cam" surrounded by two sets of electrical contacts. Rotate the cam to open the contact points if necessary. Insert a thin nail file between the points and rotate the cam to trap the file between them, then scrub back and forth several times to clean the contact points. Do this for each contact on both sides of the cam. When finished, rotate the cam clockwise so it is all the way back down to it's original position. 5. To make re-assembly easier, remove the round adjustment knob from the cover by depressing the half-round shaft flanges inside the cover with your fingernails. 6. Re-assemble the toaster by reversing steps 1 & 2. Replace the knobs, making sure that the round one is in the same position you noted earlier before you push it all the way down.
