Question about Cuisinart CPT-140 Cool Touch 4-Slice Toaster

1 Answer

Only toasts part of bread

What am I doing wrong?!?! I have 2 refurbished and 2 brand new Quisinart 140 toasters and they all leave one side of one slice of bread untoasted. If I put 2 slices of bread in the right side of the toaster it will toast the outside slice fine and the slice closest to the left side (or center) of the toaster comes out with the left side of the bread untoasted. Is this common? Is there a fix?

The solution I got from the FixYa team was: "Get a new toaster." Which is how I ended up with 4 new toasters that don't work. I'm glad I didn't PAY for THAT answer.

Left-hand section only toasts on one side


The heating resistor on the left side has shorted with the case. Since you don't know very much on electrical equipment (to fix it you would have to open it, remove the shorted piece of wire, reattach all and insulate them properly) and the price of a new item is low, just buy a new one and discard this one. You shouldn't use it again, under no circumstances - if you're unlucky it can kill you.

Russell Hobbs RH2T toaster bread won't stay down w/o hold handle


Hi, most new toaster have a selenoid that hold down the handle while toasting then release when done so a spring bring the toast up. Possible problem with the selenoid, the electronic circuit that controls it or the plate that the selenoid holds. When you lower the handle you close the contacts of the AC line inside the toaster so if the handle is raised there is no power.

Black and /decker toaster model T3550. The outside elements work but the middle ones do not. so only one side of the bread is toaster.And the handle must be held down the whole time to toast


The heating element wire is really thin and there is a great posssibilty of breakage. There is also a spring switch in which the lever locks when toasting. needs replacement.

Toaster only toasts on one side


Please ensure that the "Bagel" function is not selected (LED is not lit up). The Bagel function will toast one side of the bread while only warming the other side.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.

Only toast one side of the bread


The other side that isn't toasting has an open element. Usually, the good side will burn twice as hot, and may have stressed that element. You might want to replace both in that slot. make sure you check the voltage rating plate. 208 and 240 volt toasters use different elements.
I just posted the procedure to replace elements, in a similar post here.
