Re: timer

Unplug toaster and lay toaster on its back. Gently pry the timer knob up and off the front of the toaster and spray the shaft several times with WD-40. Replace the timer knob and manually operate the timer repeatedly, thereby working the WD-40 down the timer shaft. Test the timer to see if it now operates freely. If not, repeat the above steps. Set toaster upright and plug in. This worked for me. If it doesn't work on your toaster, then have it repaired professionally.

Re: timer

Replace the timer - 25.00 pounds for a new one, or just take it apart and clean it with electircal spray cleaner then blow it out with compressed air. I did that, but it only lasted for six months and started sticking again, so now I'm ordering a new timer.

SOURCE: The timer stops, the toaster keeps toasting, burning the toast.

The timer is also a electrical contact switch. When the timer goes to zero an internal spring force the electrical contact to open so the heating elements to stop heating.
So either the spring stuck so it can not open the contacts anymore or the electrical contacts have been stuck together by elctrical sparking during the on and off.
In any case you must replace the timer switch with a new one since they does not worth to anything else with it.
The operation does not need any profetional skills since it can be remove easyly by removing the bottom panel and be carefull to remove the wires conected to it with clips make some notes so you will put the wires in the same position of the new timer switch.
If you don't fill comfortable with above then let an electrician do it for you.
Good Luck

The timer has started to stick...causing toast to burn if you leave it. It could easily start a fire. is this common.

This one of the most frequent problem of dualit toaster. Timer is also power electric switch whith contacts which from long time use they stuck due to sparking during contact. You need to replace the timer switch . you can find one at ebay is the same for all models. just take care the voltage 120v or 240 v. Als take a picture before remove the wires on the timer since you might forget how to put them back on the new switch.

My Dualit Toaster is 2 yrsold this Christmas (I have the receipt) the timer dial sticks and won't move on and the toast the toast burns.

You need a new timer should be free from dualit but is not. Its a common problem . I would consider it a design flaw. They at the very least should make it available in the states at a resonable price. You can get a new one on ebay pricey

I have a tefal TT550015 toast 'n' Egg and have no instructions on how to use it. Please advise

To use the egg side only, fill the measuring cup with the correct amounts of water. (One side is for boiled eggs, one is for poached eggs.) Pour the water into the basin at the bottom. For boiled- Place 1-4 eggs in the tray with the four holes. Use the sharp thing at the bottom of the measuring cup to pierce the egg shell. Place the lid over top, and hit the 'egg' button. When the light on the button goes out, remove the lid. For poached, grease the pan. Spray/ butter, whatever. DO NOT rely on the non-stick. The thick black tray for boiling eggs goes on first. With the egg in the greased pan (scrambled or whole) place the pan into the unit. There are four plastic pieces in the boiling tray to show you where it goes, the handles aligned. The round tray, with the square holes in it, can be used to warm pre-cooked meat.This is optional, and that tray goes on top. Place the lid over the top, and press 'egg'.

WARNING: this cooks by steam, and any remainder can cause burns. Be careful when removing the lid. Same goes for the product. The boiled eggs should not be touched directly.

To make an egg sandwich, load the egg side and the bread/english muffin/bagel into the toaster. Press the 'egg/toast' button BEFORE starting the toaster. The toaster will start on a timer so that the egg and toast will be done at the same time. When the toast pops up, you are good to go.

Note: there should be no water afterwards, maybe a little oil if you cooked meat. Hard water residue is easily removed with vineger and a paper towel.
