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