    The egg part gets hot but the toaster part doesn't.I love toast in the morning

    I have the same problem, the egg coker works, the toaster solenoid works and the bread stays down; but no heat, no toast.

    Geraldbarrer's answer helps, but leaves some important questions unanswered.
    1- What does the 24v relay look like.and is there a parts number?
    2- how would I test mine?
    3- where could I get a replacement part.
    not sure how I will get an answer, so my email is:

I just took mine apart. There is a small 24v relay that should switch and allow the toaster elements to come on.

If it is not staying down then there magnetic coil is not working. There is another question like this here.

Never was able to fix it, but I called the manufacturer, and after sending them a copy of the purchase receipt they sent me a new one.

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.

4-slice egg & muffin toaster


On my fourth one now...love the idea, but the egg poacher keeps burning out.
The 800 number is 1-800-688-1989
Calling them now...this last one only lasted 3 weeks.
