Left-hand section only toasts on one side

Had 4 slices of bread in to toast, pushed down the lever and a few minutes later all the power in the house went. When I restored the power supply, the toaster wasn't working in the left-hand toasting section. Bread only gets toasted on one side, so I think fuse of some sort has blown.
Any help would be appreciated.

The heating resistor on the left side has shorted with the case. Since you don't know very much on electrical equipment (to fix it you would have to open it, remove the shorted piece of wire, reattach all and insulate them properly) and the price of a new item is low, just buy a new one and discard this one. You shouldn't use it again, under no circumstances - if you're unlucky it can kill you.

SOURCE: Black & Decker T-1029 2-slice Toaster - lever broken

Main problem with these is crumbs, they get stuck between the 2 surfaces of the small electromagnet that keeps the lever down, consequently it does not stick anymore, try drop kicking it in the drection of the garbage can, this sort fright may just scare it into working again.

SOURCE: Only toast one side of the bread

This would be an electrical problem, if you can open up the toaster and find the main cord, then try to fix it from there, if you can not open it up, then you may need to replace it

SOURCE: 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.

Hi my girlfriend just gave me this toaster, and would like to know what the lighted buttons are for thanks


Since you don't mention the make or model number of the toaster or its age I can only make the following guesses.
It might be an electronic model. To test if this is the case, leave the toaster unplugged and push the lever of the toaster down. If it does not stay down it is an electronic toaster. If it stays down then it is NOT electronic.
The lights might be lighted push buttons.
If you plug the toaster in then put a slice of bread or two in and push the lever handle down and one light comes on then this is probably a dual purpose pushbutton. It indicates that the heating elements are on and if you push it will cancel the toasting cycle and the bread slices should pop up.
If there is a button beside the above button it could be for extending the toaster cycle time a bit longer to compensate for a thicker slice or a denser bread like a bagel. If you push it, it will light up to let you know that the cycle has been extended for this reason.
If there is a button beside this one, it could be for extending the toasting cycle to compensate for a frozen slice of bread or whatever, like a bagel or even a frozen waffle.
If you find the make and model for your toaster, it might be on the bottom somewhere, google it to see if you can download an instruction manual for it.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

It sounds like the heating coil is not getting power on the side that is not toasting. Return the unit to the retailer that you purchased it from and get a different model or a refund.

When i push down the lever it doesn't stay down


remove the housing & you will probably notice the 2 ceramic pieces are burned out. (They maybe plastic) But these are the 2 pieces and the 2 long metal contact points that come together when the lever is pushed down. The 2 metal contact strips come together & make the eletronic connection to start the heating process. let me know if you find the parts.

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.

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.
