Question about Russell Hobbs 18117 4-Slice Deluxe Toaster Modern Classic Design
The right hand side toaster will not turn off (unless I unplug at the mains). Pressing the eject button does not do anything. The elements heat up and stay heated forever. The left hand side works as normal. Thanks
Its broken, retun it to the place you brought it and demand a refund

may have screws on the bottom and the loader knob usually has to be pried off. Place soft wood like a ruler against the housing and pry carefully from side to side with a large screwdriver. After working on it, plug it in outside to a ground-fault ac plug on a fireproof surface to test.

I had the same problem which I managed to solve. The electro magnet that holds the toast lever down takes its power from a poor joint.
Remove the bottom of the toaster. You will see 2 wires encased in a heat proof sleeving going from the small circuit board. One of these wires dissapears up inside the heating element board about mid way along the board. You will now have to remove the metal covering by twisting 6 tabs. This is best done by taking off the black knobs you use to push the toast down - if you can - I couldnt, so I had to use long nosed pliers to bend the tabs and then with difficulty, remove the metal cover. YOu should now see the terminal that the wire is connected to. It is this connection that fails either between the wire and coonnector or connector and heatin element on the reverse side. I put a small bolt through the hole and used a nut to tighten the pressed fitting. I didnt use solder because I thought that it would just melt!
Anyway, my toaster worked after that. Russell Hobbs failed to give me any advice at all.
I hope that has helped.

Possibly a GFI on an outlet of the same circuit as the toaster needs to be reset?
We had the same problem and so came here. When I read "replaced the fuse in the plug" my husband asked about the outlet GFI switches (he replaced the outlets last year, so he remembered they had GFI switches). One GFI on the toaster's circuit had "blown" and so needed to be reset. Before relegating the toaster to the recycling bin, check the it by plugging it into an outlet you know is working.

Check to see if the toaster is plugged in; if it is, unplug the toaster, then plug it back in again.
A tone will sound when the toaster is plugged into a live electrical outlet.
If no tone sounds, check the electrical circuit the toaster is connected to -
is a fuse blown or a circuit-breaker tripped in your home?
At least with "unplugging and plug it back again in the electrical outlet" the right side of our toaster works again. The tone that should sound with plugging in didn't work...
