Possibly, especially if there is any grease or oil on conducting elements. I have had devices that were packed in styrofoam get small pieces down inside the devices so check for them first if possible. Before you trust the device, plug it into a bathroom or bedroom receptacle that is equipped with ground fault detection. Plugging it in outside on a dry concrete or sandy area and running a loaf of bread through it should tell you if it's ok. The birds should eat the toast it makes

Why is there smoke?

Kindly switch off the TV, switch off power, and remove plug. The TV needs servicing by a qualified service technician.

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

When the oven is on for a couple of min. it makes a bang sound

Probably is the metal heating up and expanding. Does everything still work? Your not smelling any smoke are you. If it still works fine and your not seeing any smoke or smelling anything burning it probably is OK. Does it do this everytime you use it? The sheet metal on the outside and inside can expand and if it is crimped at all it will make a noise when it heats up and expands. I hear this a lot where I work, we deal with extreme temperatures and when metal heats up it expands and pops sometimes!

My smoke detector periodically goes off when I am cooking although no smoke is detected.

You most likely have an ionization type detector which detects ionized particles of combustion. This type of detector does not look for smoke density but for ionized (excited) molecules in the air. Water vapor from cooking can and will set off an alarm. Burning a piece of toast in the toaster with little or no smoke will also cause a false alarm. Try moving the smoke detector further away from where you cook. This will most likely solve your problem. Hope this helps.

Paula Deen toaster egg poacher caught on fire

The same thing happened to me today and I've been searching the internet for other complaints. It happened exactly as you said, I heard a buzzing noise and went to see what it was and it was the toaster- smoke started to come out from the top. Please report your experience to the CPSC! This thing needs to be recalled!

Smoking is just the oils from the manufacturing process burning off! If it smokes longer then fifteen minutes at first start up you may need to replace thermostat! but I think you will be ok!
