One of the heating elements or more probably is faulty. They need to mesure by an ohmeter all elements and replace the one or more that is faulty.
You must do fast since you can expand the damage to other parts also like timer and cost for repairing it will be much more not to mention also the risk you have using the toaster in this condition.
So please have it checked.

How to polish the outside of a dualit toaster

To clean the outside of a dualit toaster? If it is plastic, I would use soap and hot water. Only with a wash cloth any other (such as a scrapers, scouring pad, sos pad) are to hard on the plastic and will leave scrap marks. If it's an aluminum toaster I would use a cleanser like (aluminum cream or spray) to clean it. And the toaster will look like new.

I cannot get the cord on my Dualit mixer to come out very far.

The cord has twisted inside the housing and is now binding or it has slipped out ofthe housing and is wedged between the cord housing and the case. If it is still within warranty, send it in, if not, you'll need to carefully open the housing to get the cord into the cord housing.

Dualit 4 slice toaster

measure and record the resistance of the elements. attach an ohmmeter to the (unplugged) power cord and push down the toast loading mechanism. wire the elements up until you get the same reading on the ohmmeter you got when ohming the elements out individually. Then make sure the ohmmeter reads open when the toast loader mechanism is deactivated. Then make real sure that the hot side of the ac power plug (the smaller plug) is not electrically connected to the case of the unit. Take the unit outside on a fireproof base and run an extension cord to it but leave it unplugged. Better yet use a switching power socket if you have one. Load it with toast and actuate the toast loading mechanism. Stand away from the unit and power it up. You may want to run it several times to eliminate any smoke from it due to contamination. Be aware that any finger acids or other contaminants on the elements will shorten their lifespan so you might want to clean it and let it dry thoroughly before use.
