Toast part recieves no heat and it is brand new?

For some reason we just bought the Back to Basics Toaster egg and muffin and I put toast in while the egg part was making eggs and working fine, and the toast popped out not heated. We tried it repeatedly and still no heat came out untill now it doesnt seem to heat toast.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You

    I've had the toaster for about 6 months and the toast part now receives no heat.  The egg part still heats, and it still pops up after the requisite amount of time, but no heat.

My toaster will not heat up to make toast on any level


This could be a broken heating element. If it's less than a year old, take it back for an exchange.

I have a tefal TT550015 toast 'n' Egg and have no instructions on how to use it. Please advise


To use the egg side only, fill the measuring cup with the correct amounts of water. (One side is for boiled eggs, one is for poached eggs.) Pour the water into the basin at the bottom. For boiled- Place 1-4 eggs in the tray with the four holes. Use the sharp thing at the bottom of the measuring cup to pierce the egg shell. Place the lid over top, and hit the 'egg' button. When the light on the button goes out, remove the lid. For poached, grease the pan. Spray/ butter, whatever. DO NOT rely on the non-stick. The thick black tray for boiling eggs goes on first. With the egg in the greased pan (scrambled or whole) place the pan into the unit. There are four plastic pieces in the boiling tray to show you where it goes, the handles aligned. The round tray, with the square holes in it, can be used to warm pre-cooked meat.This is optional, and that tray goes on top. Place the lid over the top, and press 'egg'.

WARNING: this cooks by steam, and any remainder can cause burns. Be careful when removing the lid. Same goes for the product. The boiled eggs should not be touched directly.

To make an egg sandwich, load the egg side and the bread/english muffin/bagel into the toaster. Press the 'egg/toast' button BEFORE starting the toaster. The toaster will start on a timer so that the egg and toast will be done at the same time. When the toast pops up, you are good to go.

Note: there should be no water afterwards, maybe a little oil if you cooked meat. Hard water residue is easily removed with vineger and a paper towel.

Toaster will not stay down in toast position


uh, don't think there's a good chance, you could try to send toaster in for repair, but buying a new toaster is probably cheaper.
