    My machine is a Toastmaster Mod. 1B14. No. A 4224065. It is mint condition. An example of american engineering we could admire. One of the four heating elements gave up this month (after, and I am guessing 50 years) The wife is skepical. I want to locate four new heating elements and replace them all while it is disassembled.

    I have a 1950's toastmaster toaster that works great, but the knob that determines how brown the toast gets is broken on light. I have to put the toast through twice to get it dark enough. I'm looking for the parts to fix it.

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

Wont pop up old toastmaster toaster

Hi mon42,

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.

Best wishes,

Toaster needs new heat coil

Find a comparable model at flea shops, yard sales, or e-bay and take the parts off and install them on yours.

Toaster does not engage properly, and sometimes not at all.

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.

Be careful!!!!!

(((You may be better off with a new toaster)))

I hope this helps you

Right side only one heating element works very hot, when should the heating element be replaced.

You can repair the other side heating element in a electrical shop or by ur self if u have the skills. Mostly the element breaks of due to food hitting at it when ejected or inserted.

Appreciate a good rating from you.

Tp 409 smells burn when turn it on

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.
