Re: betty crocker toaster

I would say yes. The elements probably are overheated and broke. Unless your talking a high dollar toaster, a new one would be the best course. Of course paid for by the for-mentioned teenager.

When pushing the handle down on the toaster it will not stay down but if I hold it down I can make toast. The part number for this small board that controls the coil is ST-R307-2-A-20, there is also...

I have the same problem with the same board (KB-3150). The 12v supply is regulated directly from the mains using two large 21 Ohm resistors, a bridge rectifier and a Zenier diode. On my board the resistors and zenier diode have burnt out - they are brown and the PCB is scorched. The components are easy to source and replace, but the toaster is so cheap that it isn't worth paying someone to do the work.

Russell Hobbs RH2T toaster bread won't stay down w/o hold handle

Hi, most new toaster have a selenoid that hold down the handle while toasting then release when done so a spring bring the toast up. Possible problem with the selenoid, the electronic circuit that controls it or the plate that the selenoid holds. When you lower the handle you close the contacts of the AC line inside the toaster so if the handle is raised there is no power.

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.

Toaster arms will not stay down

Arms stay down by the mean of an electromagnet, controlled by a chip. If the wall outlet is functional, you should be able to turn on light by pressing the "defrost" or "bagel" button while the arm is held down. No light? the toaster is good for garbage!!
