Question about West Bend 77203 Electric Can Opener, Metallic
Bottom line is: this can opener must be defective because it doesn't work at all. There is very little up-and-down movement in the piercing lever and neither my husband nor I can get the cutting blade to pierce the lid of any type of can. Once when we were attempting to figure out what was wrong, we were able to cut off the bottom of an empty tuna can, but nothing since then. Since I don't often need a can opener, I made the mistake of not using it right away, and now the return period has expired, so I can't do anything except throw the thing in the trash....basically a brand-new item and those dollars down the drain. I know some people are very happy with this product, so I believe I must have a defective unit. There is no troubleshooting guide in the manual. So, word to the wise: Use your product right away to make sure it works and keeps on working! I'm going back to the manual can opener. If anyone has suggestions for getting it to work, I'll hang onto it for a few weeks, but I'm not optimistic.
