I have a Phillips toaster. It has been working

I have a Phillips toaster. It has been working great. Suddenly this morning it would not go on. The heat element would come on and toast the bread but only if I manually held the knob down. Can I repair this easily? I have cleaned the toaster and no crumbs or large pieces seem to be in the way.

It sounds like the magnetic coil which holds the lever down to the toast position has burned out. you probably can't get the part for repairing it as it would be too costly

Breville Toaster stop working


Often, it is caused by an accumulation of crumbs around the thermal shut off sensor. This causes the toaster to shut off quicker because it gets too hot.
unplugging the toaster, taking the outer shell off and cleaning all visible residue out of the toaster.
Reminder: if wiping with damp cloths, please let toaster thoroughly dry before reassembly..
Just found this on the internet dont no if this will work.

GE toaster model 169100. : the lever to toast won't stay down. I researched removing the base to clean the magnets, but not regular Phillips screws. Suggestions??


I have the same GE toaster and now my lever won\'t lock in place when I push it down to cook my toast. The handle does not pull off and when you turn the toaster over there are no screws to take the toaster apart. So I guess I have to say this is a disposable toaster but I am extremely bummed because it is beautiful and match decor and microwave that has the same color scheme as my toaster.

I wish companies would stop making cheap junk that doesn\'t last more then a few years.

My toaster has suddenly stopped working - none of the heating elements come on - I have changed the plug fuse but it is still not working at all - it just suddenly stopped.


I can only imagine one of the elements has broke and so the current can no longer flow.
check all the elements while unplugged to find a break.

not sure if this can be repaired.

the only other thing would be the thermostat is defective.


I hope this was useful.

Possibly a GFI on an outlet of the same circuit as the toaster needs to be reset?

We had the same problem and so came here. When I read "replaced the fuse in the plug" my husband asked about the outlet GFI switches (he replaced the outlets last year, so he remembered they had GFI switches). One GFI on the toaster's circuit had "blown" and so needed to be reset. Before relegating the toaster to the recycling bin, check the it by plugging it into an outlet you know is working.

Toaster/oven


Could be the timer switch. They will suddenly stop working all at once or work intermittantly. Unless it's a Delonghi you may have a very hard time finding the part you need. If the switch is a DKJ/1-60 you will not find one but there is a Delonghi switch that you can use which you can find at www.thegourmetdepotco.com or www.applianceparts.com . The Delonghi part # is 5218104600 to replace a DKJ/1-60
