Our R-H 9376 Toaster suddenly stopped working. The handle won't stay down and the heat doesn't come on. It's as if the electricity was off. I've replaced the fuse in the plug but it seems ok. Tried it in another socket too. Can anyone help with a possible solution?
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.

I have the same GE toaster and now my lever won\'t lock in place when I push it down to cook my toast. The handle does not pull off and when you turn the toaster over there are no screws to take the toaster apart. So I guess I have to say this is a disposable toaster but I am extremely bummed because it is beautiful and match decor and microwave that has the same color scheme as my toaster.
I wish companies would stop making cheap junk that doesn\'t last more then a few years.
Is it plugged in. You may have to do a little handy work, unplug the unit and look to see where it catches when the handle is in down position, you may have to open the bottom door. There is a little catch when the handle is down it may need to be bent a little not much.
See the diagram attached: You will see the fuse you will problema 1) Ground 2) Live wire touching the chassis 3) Heating elements in short 4) Control Relais in short. 5) Test Diodes,You must test every components.God bless you
There are two printed circuit boards inside front of toaster - One PC board for each side. The circuit board on the side that won't latch down in the "toasting" position , is defective. Now, does anyone have access to a schematic for this toaster?
At the moment I am looking for the problem in m,y Tefal. The biggest problem seems to be sorting out how to pull it apart. I have sfound that the whole carriage must be pulled out the back of the toaster. About 10 T10 screws to be removed from the base then there are are a couple more philips screws to remove after the back is off, then the handles that you press down to allow the bread to drop mus t be released. There are plastic pieces that hold in the metal tip on the handles. They are located inside the body and are accessewd from the slot that the handle moves in. I haven't yet located the release clips for the high lift handles. Once I have found them I may be able to access the mechanisms. If this doesn't help enough then please ask for more information as I shall have found my way inside by then
We had exact the same problem. Our problem was within the circuit board controlling the release relay, on the left side. 3 parts was dead: 1) rectifier diode 200V 1amp 2) Electrolytic capacitor 220uF 25V 3 Zener diode 12V 1W These components supplies 12VDC to the rest of the circuits from the mains, 127 VAC.
If the connected end is attached to the toast holder and NOT the heating element, then this is a ground wire, and the other end should indeed connect to the case (body) of the toaster. It may be attached with a screw (typically the screw is also green) or it may be attached to a simple metal tab (on the body) with a notch in the tab to accept/hold the wire.
