The left side of my toaster dosn't work

It's probably one of two things:1) They pressure contacts that engage the electromagnet may have burnt carbon deposits similar to spark plugs. One needs to clean in between the contact (two on each side) while putting slight pressure as the contacts meet.2) The spring mechanism that engages these contacts has snapped at the securing point, thus not able to put enough pressure to engage these contacts that power the electromagnet.
For some reason it's always the left side.
If the toaster is more than 5 years old I would suggest buying a new on , even though these toasters are very reliable. As the crumbs that left inside are so powdery and coats every surface inside, as well.

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

Require replacement wire which triggers the catch when the operating handle is pushed down. Where can I buy it?.

Russell Hobbs products are firmly placed at the budget end of the market and many of their products have little or no spares availability as they're often not designed to be repaired.

However, they do supply spares for some models if you're unable to fabricate the part yourself, see web address below:-

I hope that you've found my answer to be useful and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

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.

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.

Broken metal lever arm for 3/4 slice switch

Further to my post of an hour or so ago, I realised that 20 gauge is close to 0.8mm which is a standard size for Stainless Steel MIG welding wire.(Some MIG machines use 0.9 ) As I have some 0.8 I have now mended my toater in that respect and it works OK. It was easy to shape the wire which is not critical. It may not be quite so springy but its hard to tell the difference. I suspect 0.9mm MIG wire would be even better.
Unfortunately I have another problem. Hey ho.

Russell Hobbs 9209 Classic toaster

I had the same problem which I managed to solve. The electro magnet that holds the toast lever down takes its power from a poor joint.
Remove the bottom of the toaster. You will see 2 wires encased in a heat proof sleeving going from the small circuit board. One of these wires dissapears up inside the heating element board about mid way along the board. You will now have to remove the metal covering by twisting 6 tabs. This is best done by taking off the black knobs you use to push the toast down - if you can - I couldnt, so I had to use long nosed pliers to bend the tabs and then with difficulty, remove the metal cover. YOu should now see the terminal that the wire is connected to. It is this connection that fails either between the wire and coonnector or connector and heatin element on the reverse side. I put a small bolt through the hole and used a nut to tighten the pressed fitting. I didnt use solder because I thought that it would just melt!
Anyway, my toaster worked after that. Russell Hobbs failed to give me any advice at all.
I hope that has helped.
