Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
It's a Rowlett 2WTB-171E 2-slot toaster. It's brand new, I started it up for the first time and it smelled a bit like melting plastic or paint. A bit of smoke came out, both from the holes (ventilation? idk) on the side and from the slots. not much, and nota heavy or blue smoke, but smelly. The second time we turned it on (without bread in it,) it smoked more. It's just a light, white, but smelly smoke. Is it just because it's new, or is something melting inside it?
I would have said the new is smelling , but don't run the risk here, take it back and get another, unless you want to call there help desk.

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.

please check and make sure the red button in front is pressed to the right so that all 4 slots will heat up.
if it is to the left, only the left 2 will heat up.

SOURCE: 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.
