Question about Russell Hobbs 18117 4-Slice Deluxe Toaster Modern Classic Design

1 Answer

Toaster won't turn off

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

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.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

If the oven doesn't work at all, make sure the circuit breaker or fuse is on at the electrical panel and test the electrical cord.
If the oven doesn't work on its toaster and oven functions, test the main switch . As needed, check the fuse.
If the toaster function doesn't turn off unless the door is open, test the solenoid, the switch and if necessary, the thermostat .

Location of the typical toaster oven's thermal fuse.
If the toaster oven stays on when the door is opened, check the main switch . If the oven doesn't heat, test the heating elements

Right side lights on all buttons won't stop flashing and bread 'holder' stays closed


Hi! Try to unplug it from the electrical grid and to clean it inside the place where the bread goes, maybe there's a piece of bread stuck in there. I hope this will work! Have a nice day!

The left side of the toaster will not go down when I push the Toast/Cancel button. The right side works fine. Any help is appeciated.


My toaster started having this same problem. After several tries of unplugging and replugging with no luck, I decided to try to take it apart. Without a special screwdriver, you can't remove the bottom. I did remove the crumb trays and scraped a few pieces of stuff that had baked itself to the sides and bottom. After carefully cleaning both sides, I took it back in and replugged. Everything works fine. The left side is used more than the right and had debris built up. I think it must have stuck the wire frame that is supposed to move the toaster up and down. I used a long screwdriver to scrape out the debris. It was burnt on. MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE PLUG FROM POWER BEFORE STICKING ANYTHING METAL IN THE TOASTER.

Tefal avanti hi speed 4 slice toaster one side not working, Not staying down Left side right side ok


When the push down lever hits the bottom it pushes another little lever which makes contact with the positive and negative terminals. over time, these terminals get ever so slightly bent, especially if you start pushing the lever down hard. what you have to do is take the toaster apart, get to the positive and negative terminals and pinch back into shape with some pliers. you should understand once you look at it. Then put back together. if it doesn't work then it's likely a component has gone so, unless you have a multi-meter and a soldering iron I wouldn't suggest doing this.

Oh yeah, unplug it before you do anything.

Toaster button does not latch.


The buttons latch is actually an electromagnet that is engaged and disengaged by a small timer located on the toasters circuit board. The most likely reason why the button will not stay latched is a bad connection to the magnet. Unplug the toaster and open the right side panel by removing the machine screw located on the underside of the toaster. You will notice a pretty simple circuit board with 2 (usually red) wires leading to the magnet. If you have trouble locating the magnet, push the "toast" button and watch out for the component it butts up too. Because the wires attached to the magnet are soldered firmly to the circuit board, the poor connection is usually at the magnet. Gently push the wires towards the magnet to ensure a good connection. To test, plug the toaster in, being sure to remove any tools or loose components from the toaster, and push in the button so see if it latches. If it does latch, open the door to disengage and unplug the toaster before reassembling. If it does not latch, you may need to replace the magnet.

Right side stopped working


In the manual:

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...

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.
