Question about Russell Hobbs Toasters

Open Question

Only toasting one side of the bread.

I bought the four slice toaster for a Christmas present to my parents from Morrisons supermarket & have no receipt because bought along wiht weeks shopping. they can't get the toast to cook on both sides at once. In fact they are taking it out & turning toast around to cook the other side quite ridiculous. I suspect the elements are faulty & failing to heat up.
I would like a replacement sent to them if possible. Pleaase advise.

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.

SOURCE: only toasts part of bread

The solution I got from the FixYa team was: "Get a new toaster." Which is how I ended up with 4 new toasters that don't work. I'm glad I didn't PAY for THAT answer.

SOURCE: Hi our 3 slice dualit toaster gets stuck when you

We have the same problem and it has been on all day, and credit to the toaster it has not yet burnt out an element, I am looking to replace the timer as I found that the pivot inside is on a plastic bearing and that has worn, I did find a timer on a web site but cant find it now.

SOURCE: Our 4-slice toaster (model 4cbc) is only toasting

Inside your toaster there are eight heating element plates six in the center and one in left end and one in right end.
Just switch on the toaster without any bread at maximum time and visualy inspect to see which side is becoming red and which not. Then you need to replace the element plates you see that they don't become red.
Remember that the two in center are the same called "CENTER" and the other two on ends are the same called "END"
They can easily be removed if you remove the bottom panel.
Good Luck

The bread only toasts on one side (each piece)


I take it it that the outside is being toasted and not the part between the slices? That would mean that the element that is shared by the two slices has burnt out. Check with a dealer for a replacement.

Not toasting evenly


Inside your toaster there are six heating element plates four in the center and one in left end and one in right end.
Just switch on the toaster without any bread at maximum time and visualy inspect to see which side is becoming red and which not. Then you need to replace the element plates you see that they don't become red.
Remember that the four in center are the same called "CENTER" and the other two on ends are the same called "END"

We have the four slice toaster. The arm on the left will no longer stay down. The side still toasts, but the arm will not lock in the down position.


try removing the lower claening plate and remove the bread crumbs and see if that makes it work again. Many people don't know there is a cleaning try on the toaster.

Toaster only toasts on one side


Please ensure that the "Bagel" function is not selected (LED is not lit up). The Bagel function will toast one side of the bread while only warming the other side.

One side not working


Sounds like the element has failed. Not much you can do as even though they cost more than a 2 slice, parts availability is slim and none.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.

Only toast one side of the bread


The other side that isn't toasting has an open element. Usually, the good side will burn twice as hot, and may have stressed that element. You might want to replace both in that slot. make sure you check the voltage rating plate. 208 and 240 volt toasters use different elements.
I just posted the procedure to replace elements, in a similar post here.
