Retro Westinghouse toaster works but toast will not pop out

I have a 40's retro Westinghouse chrome toaster. It will toast but toast will not pop out when done. Can this be fixed?

    Hi Cactus Bob,



    Thanks for your suggestions. I don't think this toaster has a timer; at least I couldn't find one. There is a small lever under the push down lever which releases the same, so it may be just a case of this toaster being manual. This toaster, btw, was made by Canadian Westinghouse, if that makes a difference. Noticed a few brokes wires as well.



    Best.

YES .westinghouse used a clock timer to time all of there toasters in the 40s and 50s . remove the push down knob (there is a set screw under it) and the 4 screws under the toaster . the top will come off inside next to the push down lever there is a little clock timer . a drop of oil on the moveing parts of the timer will get it ticking again .....test your work by pushing down the lever stem (with it unpluged ) it should pop up when it times out . puting back on the top can be a pain but it does go back but at some point you may wonder ! with all toasters put down a towel before working on one to keep from scraching the mirror finish ......Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob

Delonghi xr640 toasting-finished chime not working


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the oven doesn't work at all, make sure the circuit breaker or fuse is on at the electrical service panel and test the electrical cord . If the oven doesn't work on its toaster and oven functions, test the main switch . As needed, check the fuse .
If the toaster function doesn't turn off unless the door is open, test the solenoid, the switch and if necessary, the thermostast.

Location of the typical toaster oven's thermal fuse.
If the toaster oven stays on when the door is opened, check the main switch . If the oven doesn't heat, test the heating elements.

The lever doesn't stay down anymore, what should I do?


It sounds like the latch is broken. Unless you are very comfortable opening appliances and know very well what you are doing, it is best to have the toaster replaced. Check if it's still under warranty, or buy a new one.
Any workarounds to block the lever in its down position are very dangerous and a potential fire hazard. You may be able to wiggle the lever into place so it catches whatever is left of the latch, but make sure it will pop up easily when the toast is ready.
I hope this helps.

Breville classique toaster


Just fixed my Breville CT20. Cleaned the contacts, there were no impeding crumbs so I tested again and still wouldn't stay locked. I finally replaced the 470uf 16v capacitor on the control board just below the electromagnet and wow, works like a brand new toaster! I got lucky, saving bits and pieces of old circuits sometimes pays off.

Toaster Loading handle wont staY down


I have researched this toaster quite extensively, without any success as to actual solutions. Usually these machines have either a solenoid activated lever that holds the toast down, although magnetic systems are not uncommon. These may be avtivated by a thermostat, an optical "brownness" meter or a timer. Usually the cost of replacing this would be as much as a new toaster due to labour costs, however it may possibly be fixable - could you add a photo of the internal workings - this might help. Unfortunately many other purchasers appear to have similar problems and claim to have had little success with either dealer or manufacturer. The number of toasters of this model offered for sale second-hand as new at ridiculously low prices makes me suspect that there is a fundamental problem with the model. Use any warranty you have, but unless you wish to write a lot of letters/mails then i suspect a new toaster might be your best bet. Availability of spares for this toaster is another issue - I have been unable to find anyone who claims to supply these, although individual components are almost certainly from different manufacturers and could be sourced. If you can arrange a photo of the toaster when open (reasonably close up and general view) then I may be able to help more. Apologies for no actual "Solution" yet.
