Russell Hobbs 18140 Toaster The bread carrier will not stay down during toasting. Insert two slices of bread into bread carrier and push down to lock. The right hand side carrier does not stay down. The left hand carrier works as it should and pops up on its own once the bread is toasted. Have cleaned out crumb tray and looked for any obvious obstructions.

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.

Hi my girlfriend just gave me this toaster, and would like to know what the lighted buttons are for thanks


Since you don't mention the make or model number of the toaster or its age I can only make the following guesses.
It might be an electronic model. To test if this is the case, leave the toaster unplugged and push the lever of the toaster down. If it does not stay down it is an electronic toaster. If it stays down then it is NOT electronic.
The lights might be lighted push buttons.
If you plug the toaster in then put a slice of bread or two in and push the lever handle down and one light comes on then this is probably a dual purpose pushbutton. It indicates that the heating elements are on and if you push it will cancel the toasting cycle and the bread slices should pop up.
If there is a button beside the above button it could be for extending the toaster cycle time a bit longer to compensate for a thicker slice or a denser bread like a bagel. If you push it, it will light up to let you know that the cycle has been extended for this reason.
If there is a button beside this one, it could be for extending the toasting cycle to compensate for a frozen slice of bread or whatever, like a bagel or even a frozen waffle.
If you find the make and model for your toaster, it might be on the bottom somewhere, google it to see if you can download an instruction manual for it.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Russell hobbs problems


It sounds like the heating coil is not getting power on the side that is not toasting. Return the unit to the retailer that you purchased it from and get a different model or a refund.

Russell Hobbs Toaster has just stopped working


get your volt ohm meter out unplug it and disassemble it check your heating elements if there is no resistance the elements are bad. ONLY if you are comfortable with ac voltage!!! turn your meter to check ac voltage VERY CAREFULLY make sure nothing is shorted plug toaster in press toast button down. this should send voltage through thermostat to the coils . if you measure voltage across toaster switch when it is depressed the switch is bad. check your thermostat same for it if there is voltage across it it is open (bad).

Possibly a GFI on an outlet of the same circuit as the toaster needs to be reset?

We had the same problem and so came here. When I read "replaced the fuse in the plug" my husband asked about the outlet GFI switches (he replaced the outlets last year, so he remembered they had GFI switches). One GFI on the toaster's circuit had "blown" and so needed to be reset. Before relegating the toaster to the recycling bin, check the it by plugging it into an outlet you know is working.

Russell Hobbs 9209 Classic toaster


I had the same problem which I managed to solve. The electro magnet that holds the toast lever down takes its power from a poor joint.
Remove the bottom of the toaster. You will see 2 wires encased in a heat proof sleeving going from the small circuit board. One of these wires dissapears up inside the heating element board about mid way along the board. You will now have to remove the metal covering by twisting 6 tabs. This is best done by taking off the black knobs you use to push the toast down - if you can - I couldnt, so I had to use long nosed pliers to bend the tabs and then with difficulty, remove the metal cover. YOu should now see the terminal that the wire is connected to. It is this connection that fails either between the wire and coonnector or connector and heatin element on the reverse side. I put a small bolt through the hole and used a nut to tighten the pressed fitting. I didnt use solder because I thought that it would just melt!
Anyway, my toaster worked after that. Russell Hobbs failed to give me any advice at all.
I hope that has helped.
