If the outlet has power, then I would suspect the thermal cutout inside has opened.

If it's less than 30 days old, you should be able to take it back to the dealer for replacement.

If it;s still under warranty, Oster should replace it or arrange for repair. Do you still have your manual or box?

If it's out of warranty, it would not be worth repair and replacement would be the best bet.

Bread will not stay down; element does not get hot (Kenmore toaster- 10 -12 years old). I don't know if there is spring that needs to be replaced or if the element itself is gone. How would I test for this...


Hi and welcome to Fixya. There is a simple test you can do with an ohm meter across the heating element connections.

The unit must be unplugged and your going to have to remove the cover.

Check for any signs of low resistance across the element connections. No resistance or infinity and the element is history.

Any sliced bread toaster with a failed heating element will have the symptoms you described. However, it could also be the mating contact has failed which is closed when the bread holder is in the down postion.


My experience... 10 - 12 year old toasters are not worth repairing unless it is a commercial type unit. By the time you order the needed parts and pay the shipping you far exceed unit replacement costs. Repair costs rise even more if you ship it or hand carry it to a repair service center.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You may contact consumer_relations@toastmaster.com.

If they refer you to Salton, you should try to get a phone number, because their Web site was not working when i just tried it.

Panasonic NN-S953 Microwave Problem


It sounds like a problem with the inverter, control unit (circuit board) or high voltage transformer. I would recommend first that you (or a servicer or electrician) measure the actual line voltage at the outlet. It may be too low, or you may have a tarnished breaker or bad connection between the breaker and the outlet. Then try something like a toaster or toaster oven in that outlet and see if it toasts bread properly. Toasters consume a lot of current, so they are good load testers for outlets. Another good test is a hair dryer. Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models. You should be able to locate a Panasonic-authorized servicer here: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/WhereTo/FindServicer.asp?Pass=1 I would mention the exact symptom when you call so the technician can bring a new inverter with him when he comes out to repair it. Might save you having it pulled into the shop. Also, you can save about $50 by removing it from the wall and taking it to the shop. It's really a two-person job for safety's sake, and having the original installation info helps a lot. If you still have questions, please feel free to follow up. I appreciate your thoughtful ratings to my reply.
