Question about Hatco TK-72 12-Slice Toaster

Open Question

Toaster burns even if setting are at lowest heat.

The Toaster burns toast even when set at lowest on both the dial and the small screw setting in the front. The plug seams to be extra hot. Do I have an electrical problem that might be drawing to many amps and causing the hot plug?

SOURCE: My toaster doesn't stay in the down (toast) position unless I hold it down

I had the same problem with this model. Made sure it was unplugged, took the 4 screws out of the bottom as others did. Pulled off the handle for the toast push down and the knob for the darkness control (it took some effort but came off ok, if you can tilt the darkness knob opposite the number 1 it will come off easier, there's a hook-tab right at the 1 position).

My problem was with one of the points on the 4 copper tabs that come together as the toast is pushed down. The outer copper tab was slightly out of alignment when the toast was in it's latched position and broke the circuit making it never want to latch. I bent the problem one into alignment and solved the problem.

SOURCE: timer

replace the timer - 25.00 pounds for a new one, or just take it apart and clean it with electircal spray cleaner then blow it out with compressed air. I did that, but it only lasted for six months and started sticking again, so now I'm ordering a new timer.

SOURCE: Our 4-slice toaster (model 4cbc) is only toasting

Inside your toaster there are eight heating element plates six in the center and one in left end and one in right end.
Just switch on the toaster without any bread at maximum time and visualy inspect to see which side is becoming red and which not. Then you need to replace the element plates you see that they don't become red.
Remember that the two in center are the same called "CENTER" and the other two on ends are the same called "END"
They can easily be removed if you remove the bottom panel.
Good Luck

SOURCE: Hi, The dial on our Dualit toaster gets stuck on

The timer can be rplaced by any good handyman. You can get a new one on ebay there are two types make sure you get the right one. Replace it before someone forgets to shut it off and the toaster smokes up the kitchen. Its a common problem with the dualits but the switch is not cheap and you can only get it from England. The good news is the replacement seems to be better made than the original

Black & Decker Toaster Oven - elements cycle on and off, which makes for a SLOW cook.


Oven has three modes: 1) oven mode cycles elements on and off to maintain a specific temp setting for up to 60 min. 2) toast should keep all elements on for a few min. 3) broil mode top elements only always on, up to 60 min. Make sure you have dials in correct position and use the toast timer.

I am trying to repair a Sunbeam Model T-35 radiant control toaster. Everything is working but I can't seem to get the timer control (for setting light and dark) set correctly. Is there some...


I have/had a similar problem. Here's how I fixed it.
UNPLUG THE TOASTER
1. Clean the crumbs out throughly. I removed the bottom of the toaster (6 screws) to make sure all the debris was removed. Use a soft brush. Replace bottom and tighten screws. 2. Gently brush the sensor area in the 'one slice' slot with a soft brush. 3. Remove 'darker-lighter' knob. I gently pried mine off with a small screwdriver. 4. Plug toaster in. 5. Put a slice of your usual bread in the 'one slice' slot. 6. Watch it toast. 7. When 'done' to your liking slowly rotate the control counter clockwise using a small screwdriver until the toaster stops toasting. 8. Replace knob with the pointer at the mid point (up and down) to allow for minor adjustments.

Top filament has burned out; does it pay to repair toaster oven or shouldit be replaced by a newer model??? We rarely use the oven and mostly use the appliance for toast. A replacement would cost less...


Chances are very slim your toaster oven is repairable anyway if the heating element burns out. A replacement part is not available, and there's no way to reliably repair a break. Even if it could be fixed, the low replacement cost makes it uneconomical. Parts and labor would run close to $50, maybe even exceed that price.

Unless you can find a part and do the repair yourself, small appliances today are throw-away items.

Lever will not stay depressed


Hello. The first thing to try is to set the toasting level to a darker setting. Often this alone will solve the problem. If not, the mechanism which prevents burning or even a fire is simply worn out and it is time to buy a new toaster. J.

Can you toast bread in it?


You turn on the grill part, set the temperature dial to high wait a few minutes then place the bread on the grill tray provided.

You will need to position the grill tray near the top of the oven because that is where the elements are.

The grill gets hot so you will need to use tongs or gloves to gain access to the bread

Keep a careful eye on the bread because unlike a Toaster it will not eject the bread when it is done and it will catch fire.

Quicker and cheaper to buy a purpose built toaster and use the other one for doing casseroles etc

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
