Question about Oster 6243 2-Slice Toaster

2 Answers

Toaster Setting In the past two months I have had to lower the toaster setting a bit at a time in order for it to toast to our liking. Two years ago, when it was new, we used the toast setting on 5 out of 8. At this time, we are down to just using number one since it burns the toast in anything higher than that setting. Is there anyway to restore the settings of the panel to restore the original setting?

There is a mini adjustable potentiometer facing the left side on the circuit board. Turning it counter clockwise to your taste.

No, you can not restore the settings, the best thing to do is go on ebay and buy a new one.

If it doesn't work like it should, by all means - return it for a replacement or refund. With that said, I have another possibility.

As an electrician, I have seen pretty strange things that seemingly defy explanation. There may be an issue with the outlet or circuit(s) in the kitchen where this toaster is being used. Try plugging this toaster in a plug in a different room of the house. Do not try it in the kitchen, but in the dining room, basement - or some other room instead. If it works as expected, there's an issue with the plug / circuit that you are using. You ought to have that checked out sooner rather than later.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Cactus Bob Is WRONG. I've had these replaced; and then, when it happened subsequently, bought the part and replaced it myself. You have to take the entire thing apart. but it can be done.

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
