Question about Toastmaster T75R Classic Cool Steel 2-Slice Toaster

Open Question

Old Toastmaster toaster - MOD 1B5

Hi, The knob that you push down (which usually hitches down and slides up little by little as the toast is toasting (you can still hear the ticking noise when it's suppose to be sliding up), doesn't hitch down, but instead slides right back up. I removed the bottom steel plate and cleaned it out. I thought there was something blocking the bottom of the track so that the knob wouldn't go all the way down, but still the knob won't stay down to slide up slowly with the toasting. Can you help? While this is an old toaster, it is much more durable, heavy than what you can buy today. Many thanks.

if you mean the toast itself doesn't toast on one side, check that both heating elements have about the same resistance value. One could be twice as conductive as the other and not heat as much as the other side.
If you mean the other two slots don't toast, the problem could be in the switch or in the elements themselves. check carefully the continuity of the toaster across the (unplugged) ac power connector while you push the toaster load handle down on each side. If the resistance is significantly larger on the problem side, the problem is either the switch or the elements. The problem is usually with the switch becoming corroded or oxidized. The switch is supposed to be self-cleaning, that is, it wipes itself as contact is made to help remove buildup. Sandpaper both contacts until they shine copper colored. Otherwise look at the elements while toasting. dark areas mean lower wattage is being dissipated and the element may be bad near a dark spot.

Open the toaster up and look inside by the levers, there should be a little piece that will keep the lever down, if this is missing, then you may need to replace the toaster, if not, then the little piece may be stuck, you can use the following to try and loosen it up,

The best thing you can do is call the manufacturer. It sounds as if it has a default.

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,
Graeme.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.
