Does power on

I purchased my toaster 3 months ago and I go to use it last night, now it will not power on. I checked 4 outlets and tested them with other devices and there is still no power.

If the machine is not yet a year old you can call the back to basics company and they will send out a replacement. This has happened on a couple of mine. If its older than that you can try, but will more than likely have to buy a new one

No use troubleshooting it any further. You know the AC outlet works, OK, right!
Sounds like a warranty claim to me.
Power supply in these units are all switch mode these days. Basicly a digital controlled (switch on/off at very high speed with feedback) power supply. So, even if you can find the internal fuse there is not much you can do except replace a module. Sorry

Cheers

My black & decker tro964 is not heating


That may sound like a stupid question, but is it plugged in?
Have you tried to plug in the toaster on a different power outlet?
If there is a ground fault switch where the toaster is plugged in (that's those outlets which have 2 buttons on the front, one labeld "Test" the other usually labeled "Reset") unplug the toaster and push the "Reset" button and try the toaster again. To test, if the power outlet, were the toaster is usually plugged in, is working, try a hair dryer or any other device on that outlet.
Its most likely cheaper to replace the whole toaster than to replace the heating elements, for about 40 $ since that's the price of your toaster on some websites.

Vizio VL470M won't turn on


see this instruction: God bless you
  1. Check if the power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.
  2. Check if the main power has been switched on.
    (DVD player's power supply transformer could be burned out)
3. test the power outlet wall see the diagram
4. do not use the r.control use the power button directly from TV.

Totally dead microwave


I'd first check the power outlet "under load". A hair dryer or a toaster make really good loads to test outlets.

Otherwise, at two months old, it should be under warranty and you should be able to get it fixed or replaced free.

Consult your owner's manual for the warranty and manufacturer contact info or contact the dealer you purchased it from for that info.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Toaster will not go down and will not turn toasting heat on


Hi,

This problem indicates that there is no power to the toaster.
Firstly check the power cord at the plug-open up the plug if necessary & make sure all wires are properly connected.
Next check the cable where it enters the toaster. This is where there is most wear & tear on power cables. You may also have to open up the toaster to get to the power cable connections.
If you have a continuity tester test the entire length of the cable for breaks by testing each core of the cable, namely earth, live and neutral.
Lastly check all fuses, if any.
If the cable or fuses aren't at fault, there is a bad connection somewhere within the toaster & will need to be checked by somebody with experience in home appliances.

Best wishes,

I need to purchase a replacement for my toaster over #6233 - I need a new Baking Pan & Broiling Tray. Mine is very soiled and will not clean


FYI Oster Toaster Oven: about 18 months ago after careful consideration we purchased a counter top toaster oven for the RV from WalMart. I have a 20+ year old Oster Kitchen Center and found easy access to repair parts a couple of years ago, very pleased.
Last trip out in the RV the timer knob stripped out after what I would describe as a couple of months of light use. Google'd the model in search of a replacement knob only to find many others had "been there, done that". The model is obsolete and no service parts are available.
The Oster customer service rep seemed finished at this point and asked if there was anything else she could do for me. I asked what I, a long time Oster customer, should do with the useless oven. After repeating the question rephrased several different ways she put me on hold.
She returned several minutes later to inform me that as a "one time" courtesy Oster would replace our out of warranty oven with a current model. The replacement unit would have no warranty or support from Oster.
She supplied the model number and gave us an Order #. Looking up the model number and checking reviews I have very low expectations for the replacement. Most comment as to the poor quality and reliability of this current model.
A perfect example of a manufacturer who once produced a quality produce but now sells cheap imported disposable products.
YMMV

I have enjoyed my egg and muffin toaster for some time but all of a sudden the heater for the egg portion is not working. Is there a part (fuse?) or something that I can purchase to get it working again?


What a coincidence! My neighbor brought over his back-to-basics a couple of days ago with the same symptom.

I took it apart but haven't completed testing yet -- but it's not going to be simple. I think it's the relay for the egg cooker. It's soldered in a circuit board -- most likely will need replacing.

Unless you have experience with appliance repair, you should probably take it to a shop.

Digital Display no longer showing, lever won't stay down


jsullivan22 is right about the diode. I have this problem with my 24502, which is a dual version of this. There are 2 circuit boards in your unit one with the LED display on it and another one. The diode needing replacing is on the other board. it is in the center of the board, right next to a large (1/2W or 1W) 2K ohm resistor. The diode is probably part number 3ez24d5. Test it with the diode test on your DMM, if it is bad you will get 0V both directions (I think). Also if you measure it with the Ohm function it will probably measure less than an Ohm (check the zero on your DMM as many are not accurate down this low) You can probably replace it with a <a id="ctl00_ContentMain_CartGrid_grid_ctl02_ctl00_lnkManufacturerPartNumber" href="http://mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=1N5934BGvirtualkey58410000virtualkey863-1N5934BG" style="font-weight: bold;">1N5934BG</a> or a <a id="ctl00_ContentMain_CartGrid_grid_ctl03_ctl00_lnkManufacturerPartNumber" href="http://mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=1N5359BGvirtualkey58410000virtualkey863-1N5359BG" style="font-weight: bold;">1N5359BG</a> Mouser stocks both of these&nbsp; (currently). I haven\'t gotten my parts so I can\'t guarantee these will work, but I\'m pretty sure. I will try the latter first as I\'m hoping it\'s higher power rating will keep it from burning out again, although I will be buying several spares. <br><br>This is clearly a design issue with these toasters and one that could be easily corrected. Both circuit boards in my toaster are very toasty in the area of these diodes, although I\'m sure the fact that these boards are mounted very close to the heating elements doesn\'t help their longevity.<br><br>Hope this helps everyone.
