Re: Hamilton Beach 22505 toaster info

Usually, four screws under the bottom remove the top but the toast loader lever knob is usually press fitted on. Some units have bent tabs to hold them together if screws are not used. To remove the knob, freeze the unit (to shrink the knob/lever) then place a flat piece of wood like a ruler wrapped in cloth on the housing behind the knob and use a large bladed screwdriver to try to work the knob off. If you break it superglue and epoxy, and drawer knobs not plastic or wood might work as a replacement.

I have a H. Beach Type "T", Model # 22779 toaster that will not lock down for toasting.

I have the same problem. I have troubleshot it down to a transistor or IC on the circuit board with the buttons and rotary control.

The way the toaster works is the board sends a voltage to the electromagnet that holds the "works" down until the desired time or temperature has been reached. The transistor is in series with the magnet and I assume has opened, or, the integrated circuit that sends a switching voltage to the transistor is bad.

As soon as I locate my soldering iron I'll pull the transistor to test it.

If you're looking for a minor mechanical fix, this won't be it! I'm only trying to fix it because I'm bored, I doubt it will be cost-effective if I have to buy any parts.

One side will not stay down and the led light is out

I have the same problem, took it apart and there is a circuit board controller that appears to be the problem. I'm going to try and get mine repaired under warranty since its nothing that I can fix myself..

Handle will not stay down

It has to be adjusted through the temperature knob. You change the temperature and the main handle will get locked in down position. Just

Digital Display no longer showing, lever won't stay down

jsullivan22 is right about the diode. I have this problem with my 24502, which is a dual version of this. There are 2 circuit boards in your unit one with the LED display on it and another one. The diode needing replacing is on the other board. it is in the center of the board, right next to a large (1/2W or 1W) 2K ohm resistor. The diode is probably part number 3ez24d5. Test it with the diode test on your DMM, if it is bad you will get 0V both directions (I think). Also if you measure it with the Ohm function it will probably measure less than an Ohm (check the zero on your DMM as many are not accurate down this low) You can probably replace it with a <a id="ctl00_ContentMain_CartGrid_grid_ctl02_ctl00_lnkManufacturerPartNumber" href="" style="font-weight: bold;">1N5934BG</a> or a <a id="ctl00_ContentMain_CartGrid_grid_ctl03_ctl00_lnkManufacturerPartNumber" href="" style="font-weight: bold;">1N5359BG</a> Mouser stocks both of these&nbsp; (currently). I haven\'t gotten my parts so I can\'t guarantee these will work, but I\'m pretty sure. I will try the latter first as I\'m hoping it\'s higher power rating will keep it from burning out again, although I will be buying several spares. <br><br>This is clearly a design issue with these toasters and one that could be easily corrected. Both circuit boards in my toaster are very toasty in the area of these diodes, although I\'m sure the fact that these boards are mounted very close to the heating elements doesn\'t help their longevity.<br><br>Hope this helps everyone.
