Question about Breville CT20 Retro Classic 2-Slice Toaster

1 Answer

Broken plastic sliding lug

The blue plastic lug that slides with the bread support arm to lock into a rotating clear plastic lug that holds the bread down was cracked so I glued it.
However another piece of plastic fell out of place while I did this.
Where does it go? Description: Brown plastic 25 m.m. square in the shape of a "u" with straight sides and a cut out in the same "u" shape with straight sides. A 12 m.m. tube is attached to the bottom!
I cannot detach the bottom of the toaster from the circuit board section after removing the 3 screws at bottom of toaster! Any advice other than to throw the whole thing out greatly appreciated!

How do I remove knob from Magimix 2-Slice Vision Toaster with out damaging it?

Do not try to just pull it off, you will likely damage difficult to repair parts.

On the underside remove 6 pozidrive screws 3 each end (one under the crumb tray)
Standing on its base - open the doors and remove 4x countersunk torx T10 screws, near the top, that screw from the inside into the end covers.
Now remove the opposite end to the knob, (in order to learn how it is held). Pull the bottom away from the base to the left, around 5 mm, and slide the whole end cover upwards, it unclips at the top. The other end is not so easy of course because of the knob. Release the cover, as before. It is possible - with the knob at the top, pull the bottom of the cover out 5mm and push hard to slide it upwards as before. The cover will release from its top mount. Then slide the cover all the way up, as far as the knob slot will allow. This will allow you see and have access to the back of the knob and the plastic clip that holds it in place. Stand the toaster on its base, with the end cover lifted up it is easy to put your hand inside the cover from the top and putting your thumb and forefinger around the bar you can grip the plastic hook and ease it downwards whilst you use your other hand to pull the knob and its firmly attached bar away. It will be necessary to wiggle the knob up and down whilst pulling it outwards. The bar surface is not flat, it has ridges that hold it in place quite well, even without the clip, hence the need to work it up and down. That's all there is to it! Hopefully you haven't broken the clip off, but if you have, don't worry you will still be able to use the toaster with little impact. The attached photo shows a close up of the knob and bar just separated from the mechanism. This should give an idea of what you are up against.
What a fantastically well made machine this is, a real pleasure to work on.

Toast will not stay down in toaster when lever is depressed, actually lever will not stay down. how to fix it?

Most times this is caused by a build up of crumbs in the bottom of the toaster. There is a small electo magnet that holds the lever down, if it gets covered in crumbs it won't work. Take it outside turn it upside down and bang the heck out of it till everything comes out. If this does not work then check and make sure the magnet is still attatched inside. Other than that, this toaster gets terrible reviews from folks with issues just like yours. I can only assume the electronics are failing on these units far to quickly. It can be repaired if yuou send it in to the manufacture but that is really not economical. I hope the upside down banging cures the problem.

Try cleaning the bread crumbs out of the thermostatic release mechanism. If necessary, lubricate the slides with a light, high temperature grease, but apply it very sparingly.

Morphy Richards coolstyle Model 44880 4 slice toster

I have the 44280 2-slice version and had similar problems. To dismantle, unscrew the two star-shaped screw heads which hold the retaining slides in place. I don't have a star socket (female), only the usual male, so I used a pair of pliers. Pull out the two chrome slides. Pull off the two knobs also using pliers. Remove the outer casing with care as there are two fine wires attached. Now you can see the problem - probably a broken or lost nylon retaining catch on the electromagnet, and probably unobtainable by an individual. At this stage I decided to buy a new toaster!

Bread toaster doesnt work

It could be the slide button connections or loose wires. You would have to take it apart to try and figure it out. It should be under warranty, though. I don't know if the box is required. You'll have to ask Back to Basics about that.

The level of the toaster doesn't lock

I doubt if you can fix this without taking the unit apart. Usually it is not that difficult to remove the cover. Unplug the unit. Turn the toaster upside down and remove the screws holding the outside case on. The case usually slides off or by springing the bottom of the sides out you should be able to remove it. Once the cover is off it should be easy and obvious to fix the problem you described. When you have the unit secured reverse the order to assemble the unit and you should be back in business. Good luck.
