Question about Toastmaster TP424 4-Slice Toaster
I replaced the switches, I have replaced the timers, I have checked the switches and the timers to make sure they are working, I have also checked to see if there is power going to the elements and there is. What I would like to know is why the elements will not turn on? I asked one individual and he said because there was no resistance and then he was very rude to me, because I was taking up his time.
Place your probes across the line cord plug, press the lever down see that you have continuity and 44.5 ohms resistance one at a time on each side. If it reads open you must replace the actuator switch to the switch (actuator not closing the switch. Check both sides in the same manner. Your total ohms for both circuits when pressing the switches down, should read 22.1 ohms total. all power is there, then it will work. timers only operate the release solenoids. The micro switches control the elements. the actuators must be good to force the buttons to the microswitch down, both buttons must energize the circuit on both sides of the toaster. If this fails plug in the toaster, dugh!

If you definitely have power at the elements, then if they are not heating they must be damaged - just check there is no cutout or safety device after the point you are testing for power. My guess is that new elements will solve the problem Please post again if you need info on getting/fitting replacements http://www.toastmastercorp.com/PDFs/Specs/toasters/FM128.pdf This link gives contact details etc. at the bottom. Hope this helps :)
