TT 200 Toastess Toaster

After 1 1/2 years the element broke - the comany was sold and the nw company only uses the "Toastess " name - this model belonged to previous owners the newer model is identical but has a slightly different code. Ques 1: Is there a way to solder or repair a broken element. Ques 2: if so can this be done at home? How? Ques 3 : If not is it worth taking it to a repair shop? Thank you

Re: TT 200 Toastess Toaster

When I was a kid we had this sort of problem with a toaster - and an old electric space heater. We just TIED the ends of the element together (where it broke) and it worked fine. No tricky soldering or anything. And they lasted for Years!

My toaster has suddenly stopped working - none of the heating elements come on - I have changed the plug fuse but it is still not working at all - it just suddenly stopped.

I can only imagine one of the elements has broke and so the current can no longer flow.
check all the elements while unplugged to find a break.

not sure if this can be repaired.

the only other thing would be the thermostat is defective.

I hope this was useful.

Dualit toaster - timer sticking.

The dualit all electrical parts like elements and timer switch are all manufacture in china and they are not as they used to be. I have a customer with a toaster of 25 years old and we have replace only one heating element up to now. For recent models we replace electrical parts in about 2 to 3 years, some times every year as you describe.

Center element not working. Only toasts on the outsides. Ref 875742/4yb-5003. Is this repairable or under warranty?

I believe that the center heating element in your toaster is burnt out. If it is new take it back to where you bought it. If it is under warranty usually only 90 days from date of purchase you can send it in but remember that must companies require that you pay shipping and handling and this could be nearly the cost of a new toaster plus it will probably take 4 to 6 weeks. If your toaster was very expensive you might also try a local repair shop, but again if they need to order the part it could take 1 to 4 weeks for repair.

Right side stopped working (KPTT809)

I had the same problem with my Kitchenaid toaster which is 4 years old. I called Kitchenaid and they said that this model now has a 5 year warranty and they have replaced the toaster for a new one. What a fantastic company. Try giving them a call.

Wanting to buy a toaster

Did you try Wal-Mart... or a good hardware store? They were selling this kind of toaster just a few years ago because it was some kind of anniversary. I have a new one and one that's over 30 years old (and that's pretty good for a small appliance!)

Another problem comes up....

You definitely have a problem with the hold down circuit. You will need a DMM. If you don't have one they are fairly inexpensive now and with a little reading of the instructions you should be able to master their use. Look for a fusible resistor. It should be a small shiny canister, pointed on one end flat on the other, with metal leads on each end and inline on the wire to the hold down mechanism. Once you find this, with the DMM on resistance setting (continuity), check across the device. If the DMM says infinity, in other words it shows a 1 and the display never changes, this is your problem. Replace it with a new one. They protect the device from runaway heating and are set to open at predetermined temps. Replace it witht the same rated device. Available at most electronic stores. The rating should be in centigrade (such as 160, 180, ect). This should solve your problem. You cannot solder the thermal fuse in as solder will melt when the toaster gets hot. It must be crimped to the wire. Sounds like your almost there. Good luck.

The level of the toaster doesn't lock

I doubt if you can fix this without taking the unit apart. Usually it is not that difficult to remove the cover. Unplug the unit. Turn the toaster upside down and remove the screws holding the outside case on. The case usually slides off or by springing the bottom of the sides out you should be able to remove it. Once the cover is off it should be easy and obvious to fix the problem you described. When you have the unit secured reverse the order to assemble the unit and you should be back in business. Good luck.
