Is it possible to replace the plug on a RH toaster?!

When using the toaster it fused the whole downstairs so I thought I should change the fuse in the toaster plug. I couldn't get into the plug to do anything and so I had to cut the plug off and replace with a new one. Now it doesn't work at all! Help please!

If it has blown the fuse then it has an earth fault and needs repairing, probably the heater wire is broke, may not be economical to repair.

Why is the toaster dead? Is there an internal fuse that could be changed?

No, there is no fuse. There is a safety thermostat that detects when the toaster gets too hot and will shut it off. However, it is very unlikely that this has gone bad.

Most likely, there is a problem in the mechanical linkage that turns on an internal switch when the toaster bar is pushed down.

The other possibility, which is far less likely, is that the power cord has a break in it. Sometimes, if the toaster is moved around frequently, the power cord gets flexed too much and then breaks where the cord enters the power plug. Fixing this involves replacing the power plug. To diagnose this, you can carefully hold the power cord in slightly different positions and see if the toaster powers up in any position.

As soon as I pushed the slider down with the bread there was a loud bang/flash and which resulted in the fuse blowing.Havent tried it again

The siptoms you describe is logical and it happent when the wire of the heating element have been brake and since this have live electric power when it touched the metal body of the toaster then you have spaking and automaticaly burning the fuse. So fir you can use this link to find out which element is broken , the you can buy a new one from ebay which they are in good price and replace it as per istructions they will send with element and also using the above link.

My heated seats went out, and was wondering if it was a fuse and where is this fuse located in the fuse panel?

What you are sitting on is a 9 year old toaster. Toasters draw current, if you do not believe me hold the wire on your kitchen toaster when using it. Current causes heat and heating and cooling destroys parts. If the fuse is blown replacing it will just result in another blown fuse due to the high current. There is probably a small circuit breaker built into the seat itself, I would look there or see if you cannot buy a new replacement toaster from the dealer and have it installed, I imagine that means new seats though. These things never work for too long due to their nature.

Out Dualit toaster keeps blowing the fuse. It's

Probably one wire Loosen up or a wire from one heating element have cut off and is contacting the metal body of the toaster. You need a good visual insect of your toaster, you may use a flush light to see inside the electriacl elents and also open the bottom base to insect the wire conections to the heating element.
I beleive one or more heating elements is the problem and you need to replace them.
Good Luck

Lever wont stay down, no red light

Two possibilities:
1:A wire has come off your toaster switch or plug top,shorted and blown the fuse, and all you would need to do was refit wire and replace fuse.or
2:The element has gone........probably cheaper to buy a new one

Hope I have resolved you question, but please leave positive feedback if so , as it still takes time to answer questions and it would just be nice to know if I have helped

The toaster does not heat and it's only 6 mos. old.

1. check outlet where you plug in your toaster with lamp or vacuum.
jiggle plug of lamp or vacuum while plugged in to check for bad outlet.

if lamp or vacuum do not work, check breaker panel/fuse box for tripped breaker/blown fuse.
if breaker/fuse okay, replace outlet.
if lamp or vacuum work okay, go to next step

2. plug toaster back into outlet, jiggle plug, then jiggle cord at plug, then jiggle cord at toaster.
this checks for intermittent power cord.

if cord okay, check that the toaster lever or toast basket are not blocked from going completely down.
might be a bit of bread, muffin, bagel that blocks the basket.

if all okay, you need other solutions.....

THERMAL FUSE BLOWN ON KITCHEN AID KCO100508 TOASTER OVEN. WHERE CAN I BUY A REPLACEMENT ? This Thermal fuse [ 206 degrees C ] is a ceramic housing mounted to a bracket near the oven wall. It contains a...

Thermal fuse is a one time safety device, order by specification. My Kitchen Aid toaster oven has one on the side with the controls marked 206c for 206 degrees Celcius when it blows, and marked with a part number that when Googled was found to be 2 amp. The fuse blows in this sequence: temperature first, then if that fails the regular fuse action will kill the circuit at 2 amps. I called electronic supply places around Los Angeles. $1. 25 later I have my part. Mouser electronics carries them for .44 cents. Placed the new one on the ceramic base of the old one, and am back to using my favorite toaster oven. Will not be using it for broiling again - that is when it got hot and quit on me.

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.
