Re: Can an old Toastmaster toaster be refurbished?
There is no manual forthe repair of toasters . but the toaster you have is a common one on e bay , i dont see one right now but there have been a few over the years , and a well used one sells for around 10.00 , it may not work but its great for parts ( i collect and restore kitchen appliances) so i would take a look . you might find a cream puff for 20 .00 and put yours into retirement ..... other than e bay there not a lot of resources out there for parts . good luck ........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

The 'click' sound indicates that the pop up mechanism is most likely intact. The problem of not popping up is most certainly caused by a worn or broken or disconnected spring which forces the toast to pop up once it's done. You will need to take the toaster apart and look for the mechanism which pops the toaster up (look for the mechanism attached to the tray in which the toast lies). There should be a spring, or remnants of a spring, which should be fairly easily replaceable with a similar spring. This should be readily available from your local appliance spares store.
Please let me know if I can help any further or furnish you with more details. As your toaster is very old, it will be too difficult to find any documentation on the specific model.
You can fix this but you must do so with extreme care. I am presuming this is a mechanical catch.
The catch acts in a manner similar to that of a mouse trap. You must remove the cover which will expose you to dangerous electric voltages and dangerous heater elements. Examine the catch and bend the linkage to suit your needs. Plug it in and test it. Contiunue this process until you are satisfied with the operation.
remove bottom plate.....remove 10 screws holding the bottom brown plastic base...loosen screw under push down lever....romove light, dark knob small center hex screw....cover will now lift off....gently....watch #20 toast "wires"
I would advise checking the elements as well. It is possible that plastic has melted onto the elements. Try to Identify which slot the smell is strongest. If there is a spot where the elements do have some sort of foreign material melted to them, you may need to replace them.
