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.

Toast will not stay down in toaster when lever is depressed, actually lever will not stay down. how to fix it?


Most times this is caused by a build up of crumbs in the bottom of the toaster. There is a small electo magnet that holds the lever down, if it gets covered in crumbs it won't work. Take it outside turn it upside down and bang the heck out of it till everything comes out. If this does not work then check and make sure the magnet is still attatched inside. Other than that, this toaster gets terrible reviews from folks with issues just like yours. I can only assume the electronics are failing on these units far to quickly. It can be repaired if yuou send it in to the manufacture but that is really not economical. I hope the upside down banging cures the problem.

Only one side heats up


It is possible that the heating coil has burned up on one side and the contacts are open. so if you can open the cover and get access to the coils then check continuity so as to join the burnt lines .
This will make the heating coils to work.
make sure that you join the open wires with only thermal resistance wires.

Dualit lite 4 slice not working


It can be repaired. There is a short circuit inside may be of dust gathering on contacts or the contacts are worn out due to prolonged use thus touching the heating coil or body some where inside. Smell coming is definitely burning of wires inside. Open the toaster and you may be able to see the burning spot

Back to Basics TEM-500 toaster no longer heats up


We have the same problem after only about 20 uses. The customer service number is 1-800-688-1989...we may be able to get it replaced. If they aren't willing to do anything, I'm thinking of filing a complaint with our state Attorney General because there are SO MANY complaints of the SAME, idential problem from thousands of consumers!!!!

Paula Deen toaster egg poacher caught on fire


The same thing happened to me today and I've been searching the internet for other complaints. It happened exactly as you said, I heard a buzzing noise and went to see what it was and it was the toaster- smoke started to come out from the top. Please report your experience to the CPSC! http://www.cpsc.gov/index.html This thing needs to be recalled!

Bad chemical smell coming from the new Kenmore toaster.


I would say return the toaster. No telling what kind of fumes would get into your toast -- toasted bread is like charcoal -- it'll absorb a lot of stuff.

I agree with the China/USA sentiment.

Return it and get a different brand of toaster. That will solve the problem. Hopefully they will let you give a reason why, and someone will care (probably not).

If you do not want to do this, you can plug it in outside and run it through several cycles. This will probably burn out anything that is causing the smell.

Make sure that they didn't have anything packed in the crumb tray.

Toaster burns everything


It sounds like the heating sensor is longer functioning and the toaster is probably kaput, unless you can find an independent repairman who works on small appliances. In my own experience even a pricey toaster last about 3-5 years. I had the same problem with the same brand, just a different style
