    Thanks for possible solution, it makes sense, however, make sense of this:-


    We seem to have solved the problem by turning the toaster thro 45 degrees.
    Don't ask me how, but if we turn it back to square, it does not work.
    Turn it thro 45 deg, and it does work!!
    Sounds technical does'nt it?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would suspect the thermal switch that activates the pop-up mechanism. Design wise, this is basically a themocouple, two strips of metal that react differently on an increase (change of temperature). The thermocouple forms part of the latch/lock of the eject (pop-up). Based on this, possibilities are:

  • misaligned, disconnected, faulty thermocouple;
  • misaligned, disconnected, wornout latch/lock.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    The toaster only works (pop-up) if turned 45degrees, now that' is interesting...

    The closest I can think of is east-west effect on old conventional/CRT TVs, where there would be discoloration if the TV is turned even slightly in relation to certain points of the compass.

    Have you tried relocating/trying the toaster any place else other than its current location?

Why won't my calphalon toaster oven toast top of bread? Why?


If both the top and bottom elements are working then you may need to re-position the rack closer to the top element for even toasting. If there is only one rack position available then you may need to flip the bread and toast it twice.

My toast willl not pop up to retrieve it sits lower than the toaster


I have the same problem with some breads. Mine is also set up for bagels, and the bread goes further into the toaster. When it pops up, it then drops back down just enough where I'm not about to stick my fingers into the darn thing......sound familiar? The only thing that I've found that helps is that, when the toast pops up, and then drops back down, I lift up on the lever that you push down to start the toast, and I can lift the toast up about an inch, and safely remove it. Try this, and see if it works for you.
Best regards, --W/D--

Tefal avanti hi speed 4 slice toaster one side not working, Not staying down Left side right side ok


When the push down lever hits the bottom it pushes another little lever which makes contact with the positive and negative terminals. over time, these terminals get ever so slightly bent, especially if you start pushing the lever down hard. what you have to do is take the toaster apart, get to the positive and negative terminals and pinch back into shape with some pliers. you should understand once you look at it. Then put back together. if it doesn't work then it's likely a component has gone so, unless you have a multi-meter and a soldering iron I wouldn't suggest doing this.

Oh yeah, unplug it before you do anything.

Tefal toaster wont stay down - Avanti Elite, twin.


Hi, I assume that you had the toast carriage pushed down when you check the solenoid (hold down coil) volts ? .. a bit dangerous to try though
Either way, try resoldering the solenoid connections, they can develop hairline cracks that limit the current.
