Right side lights on all buttons won't stop flashing and bread 'holder' stays closed


Hi! Try to unplug it from the electrical grid and to clean it inside the place where the bread goes, maybe there's a piece of bread stuck in there. I hope this will work! Have a nice day!

My ET-26 Hobart toaster will not cook 2 slices on either side unless both handles are pushed down !


That is strange, both sides are completely seperate electrically. Problems I have seen in the past are that some Hobart toasters are bun toasters and only toast one side of the bread. If that was the case you could look down into the toaster and see that only one side of each slot has a heating element. The other common problem is when someone changes a 220 volt to a 110 volt toaster by running the elements in series instead of paralle. at the terminal block. I am stumped on this one. I can't think of a fix for that. I am going to look at the wiring diagram again. If your question is still up, I will get back to you.

Sunbeam toaster model 6253 After placing two slices of bread and pushing down the leaver, leaver does not stay locked. What can I do to fix.


This is a maechanical fault and all you need to do is look for a lock that clicks to hold the tray down .This latch is controlled by the bimetal which when hot moves off and releases the tray.
So this strip could have moved off or damaged with use.
Might have to replace or try to repair to keep it in the lock postion..

What is back to basic toaster?


Toaster of the first order wherein there is only the heating coils arranged on either sides and the bread is loaded on the slits to be pressed down to hold on.
When the set temperature is reached then the bimetal switch releases the lock and releases the bread up.
This is the basic model with no electronics inside.

We have the four slice toaster. The arm on the left will no longer stay down. The side still toasts, but the arm will not lock in the down position.


try removing the lower claening plate and remove the bread crumbs and see if that makes it work again. Many people don't know there is a cleaning try on the toaster.

Black and /decker toaster model T3550. The outside elements work but the middle ones do not. so only one side of the bread is toaster.And the handle must be held down the whole time to toast


The heating element wire is really thin and there is a great posssibilty of breakage. There is also a spring switch in which the lever locks when toasting. needs replacement.

Only toasts part of bread


The solution I got from the FixYa team was: "Get a new toaster." Which is how I ended up with 4 new toasters that don't work. I'm glad I didn't PAY for THAT answer.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.
