Missing set screw Model AT-W. What size is it?

My toaster used to work perfectly, now it burns every time. The adjustment screw is missing, do you know what gauge, length and fineness I should look for in a machined screw?

The screw to used to move the frog to adjust the throat is missing. Can I get a replacement? Is there another part of the adjustment assembly missing?


Auctions and search engines.
Some plane Mfgs. had custom threads made. Modern bolts and screws from the hardware store may not work. Take the plane to a genuine hardware store where someone will help.
There are typically 2 slotted machine screws that secure a frog to the plane.
The plane will work fine without the slotted frog adjustment screw near the brass thumb wheel.
Really old metal planes had no frog adjustment screws.
The new frog adjustment feature did boost sales though.
If the threaded bolt for the brass thumb wheel is missing it will need to be replaced so the cutter can be easily adjusted.

WHAT SIZE EXTENSION CORD FOR GA7021 SHOULD I USE AND MAX LENGHT? BURNING UP GRINDERS


Well for 15A the minimum wire size in your cord should 14 gauge, Length can't really be specified but you want to go for less resistance in the cord, thicker wire and less length will give you less resistance (more so thickness). If your grinder works fine without the extension cord, I would recommend getting a heavy duty extension cord with 12 gauge wire and trying that.

Lengthening stitches.


You can adjust the length of the Zigzag (Satin)
Stitch using the buttonhole fine-adjusting screw. You will find it right above your stitch selection dial.

> For a longer stitch length, turn the
buttonhole fine-adjusting screw with a large
screwdriver in the + direction.
> For a shorter stitch length, turn the
buttonhole fine-adjusting screw with a large
screwdriver in the - direction.

Hope this helps

How do you replace the elements in a Hobart 4 slot toaster? I took off the bottom but there must be something I am missing. It's awfully small in there to manuever. There has to be a trick. Please share.


No Tricks. The elements are loaded and removed from the top.
DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD
Remove the crumb dtrawers, they are handy to put the parts on so the don't roll away.Remove the temperature knob after releasing the set screw, remove the lever knob after removing the pivot screw. Remove the 3 front and 4 rear cover screws with a philips driver. note the length of the screws from the locations.
Locate the element to change, disconnect the connections at front and back on the top of the element. With a small flat bladed screw driver, open the crimp tabs on each end of the bread guides and lift up. They come out of alignment holes in the lower frame. Replace the element/s, with the correct voltage replacement. 208 and 240 elements are different numbers. Reassemble in reverse order. Be carefull not to catch the element with the bread guard wires. It's common to see a bit of smoke during burnin of new elements for a short time.

I need a user manual for a Euro Pro Extra Large Toaster Oven


It shouldn't be a problem. You just use it like a regular oven and like a regular oven, you have to watch what you cook the first few times to be sure how it cooks. A regular gas or electric oven will be off by up to 50 degrees EITHER WAY (100 degree variable) from the factory. Toaster ovens are generally accurate to within about 10 degrees of the setting. Mainly the time it takes to cook something will be the only adjustment you should need.

My Krups model 288 toaster won't always latch down.


You can fix this yourself by following these instructions. Unplug your toaster before proceeding!... Clean the toaster first. Turn the toaster upside-down and shake out the crumbs. Remove and clean the bottom crumb tray. 1. Unscrew the four Phillips head screws located in the corners of the bottom base. Remove the screws completely if possible. Do this over a cloth or newspaper - that way a stuck screw won't get lost if it falls out later. 2. With the toaster right-side up, pull off the wide toast lever knob. Do not remove the round adjustment knob (it will not come off from the outside) but make a mental note of what number (1-7) is showing at the knob's adjustment mark. 3. Carefully pry up the end of the case cover with the knob on it (don't pull on the "stop" button). When the knob's plastic shaft is clear of the circuit board, gently pull off the cover. 4. On the inner part of the circuit board you will see a black plastic "cam" surrounded by two sets of electrical contacts. Rotate the cam to open the contact points if necessary. Insert a thin nail file between the points and rotate the cam to trap the file between them, then scrub back and forth several times to clean the contact points. Do this for each contact on both sides of the cam. When finished, rotate the cam clockwise so it is all the way back down to it's original position. 5. To make re-assembly easier, remove the round adjustment knob from the cover by depressing the half-round shaft flanges inside the cover with your fingernails. 6. Re-assemble the toaster by reversing steps 1 & 2. Replace the knobs, making sure that the round one is in the same position you noted earlier before you push it all the way down.

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


I solved this problem on my Cuisinart CPT-90 Classic Style Toaster twice for two different problems. Of course: make sure it's UNPLUGGED while working on it and WATCH IT several times when testing so you can unplug it first and then extinguish it if it catches on fire.

1st time: There is a small solenoid mounted in the center of the circuit board. When the pop up mechanism is pressed down the circuit energizes and the the solenoid magnetically locks a plastic clip that holds the spring loaded pop up mechanism down until it's done toasting. The plastic mounts for the circuit board broke or weakened until the whole circuit board would tilt up and the solenoid clip would slip under the spring tension. I used a plastic tie-wrap to hold the circuit board firmly in place and that worked to this day.

2nd time : The four copper reed tabs can be miss aligned. If they
do not make contact, the circuit will not energize the solenoid.
The reason they warped was that, over time, the contacts build up carbon and have more resistance. Resistance equals heat. The
plastic base of the copper reed switch melted and misaligned the reeds. The second time I cleaned the reeds and bent them back into position, The third time the the plastic was to badly burned to be reliable. If I had cleaned the contacts once a year, it probably would still work now. I haven't found a place to buy a replacement reed switch so my toaster is toast. If anyone knows where to order them, I'd like to know. If the white plastic base of the reed switch is not melted, then they can be cleaned and aligned.

Note: When aligning the copper contacts, don't just hold down the pop up mechanism. The pop up mechanism will push lower than the position for toasting. Push it down and then hold the solenoid clip instead. Then the two center reeds will be at the correct spread.
