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

Hi does anyone know anything about the frutina slush machine. Ive just bought a preowned one. Im not sure its working right and it didnt come with instructions. Thankyou


Well I live in Southampton, and Ice Frutina are based here. The liquids come in great big containers that you just pour in ready mixed I think (or perhaps its from concentrate, I'm not sure) but either way the mixing instructions should be on most slushie mix containers. For the machine to make slushie you basically need two things to happen...
1) the powerful refrigerator within the unit should function and chill/freeze the liquid in the hopper
2) The agitator should be constantly turning inside the hopper to break up the ice crystals as they form turning the liquid into slush rather than just a block of solid ice.

If the refrigeration is working, you should notice a pretty quick drop in temperature of the liquid in the hopper... It may be worth checking any fans are working properly and not seized up. Check the refrigerant compressor is humming.

That's about as much as I can help you I'm afraid. Hope it ends up working for you :)

Good luck!

I need a replacement cord for chefs mark 12 in 1 toaster oven combo tb1080


I could not locate the exact replacement power cord for your toaster oven. If the power cord is a plug -in type, you can look on line, do a search " small appliance power cords", but I'm not sure if you will be able to match up the correct cord. I think your best bet is to go to a local. old fashioned. hardware store or to a small appliance repair center. Take the original power cord with you to match it up.

Need to replace the heat stripe tape on my tilla foodsaver vaccum sealer


concerning my food sealer: the strip under the heating wire came loose & would not stay in place. i almost threw the unit away but its at least $40 to buy another. i decided to buy a roll of PTFE Coated Fiberglass Fabric With Silicone Adhesive Tape. PTFE is Teflon but u cant use Teflon as a search term because of the copyright. i found a roll on ebay for $3 (free ship) from China (how do they do that!). it took about 2 weeks for the roll to arrive. I cut a strip to fit under the wire. The wire had burned & partially buried itself in the unprotected plastic. Be gentle when nudging it out & clean off any material that has attached itself to the wire. Seals & works like new!
would you like to buy the rest of the roll? the roll has about 28 feet left.
