Question about Russell Hobbs 9209 Classic 4-Slice Toaster

Broken metal lever arm for 3/4 slice switch

Hi,
I need to source the above part but no-one seems to sell parts for this toaster.
Has anyone found a suitable parts source? It looks like it's made of a spring grade steel but it has failed right at the point where it attaches to the switch arm.
Alternatively, does someone have a 'dead' 9209 that they would be willing to cannibalise this part for me?
I'll be damned if I'm going to throw out a 5year old little used toaster for such a simple part failure!
Thanks, hopefully!
Vaughn.

    I have the same problem. I assume you mean the shaped,springy wire between the plastic switch lever and the moving bread slice holder.

    I have failed to find a supplier but hate unnecessary waste.

    I am trying to source wire of the same gauge with the intention to shape it to match the unbroken one; not difficult if I can find a supplier of the wire. It measure 0.036inch diam. which is 20 gauge (British SWG). If anyone knows a supplier ....?

    It is exactly as described by previous posts - the metal spring type switch activator has sheared. For the moment, I am switching the spring from the secondary toaster to the primary so that at least I have a two-slice toaster.The suggestion of MIG weld wire seems like a good one.

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion. Just ordered some surplus 0.8mm & 0.9mm MIG wire off Ebay. Will update when I fit and find the best one. Watch this space!!

Further to my post of an hour or so ago, I realised that 20 gauge is close to 0.8mm which is a standard size for Stainless Steel MIG welding wire.(Some MIG machines use 0.9 ) As I have some 0.8 I have now mended my toater in that respect and it works OK. It was easy to shape the wire which is not critical. It may not be quite so springy but its hard to tell the difference. I suspect 0.9mm MIG wire would be even better.
Unfortunately I have another problem. Hey ho.

Kitchen aid 2-slice toaster stopped working. It is plugged in to a good outlet.


The wiring is probably the problem. Check the connections. And then the elements . It may be burned in two.

The lever button does not stay down,so the toaster does not come on. Even if I hold the lever button down,the toaster does not come on.The toaster is cleaned on a regulas basis.


My toaster did the same thing. I cleaned the contacts on the mechanical switch with emery cloth and that problem was solved. Now I'm trying to figure out how to stop the breaker points on the mechanical switch from arcing - which I assume caused the problem in the first place.

The lever actually comes off another way, turn the toaster upside down and you will see a small clip holding the handle to the metal arm inside, you can pry it off with aa small screwdriver

Black & Decker T-1029 2-slice Toaster - lever broken


Main problem with these is crumbs, they get stuck between the 2 surfaces of the small electromagnet that keeps the lever down, consequently it does not stick anymore, try drop kicking it in the drection of the garbage can, this sort fright may just scare it into working again.
