Hi, I assume that you had the toast carriage pushed down when you check the solenoid (hold down coil) volts ? .. a bit dangerous to try though
Either way, try resoldering the solenoid connections, they can develop hairline cracks that limit the current.

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.

Lever will not stay depressed


Hello. The first thing to try is to set the toasting level to a darker setting. Often this alone will solve the problem. If not, the mechanism which prevents burning or even a fire is simply worn out and it is time to buy a new toaster. J.

Wont stay down


At the moment I am looking for the problem in m,y Tefal. The biggest problem seems to be sorting out how to pull it apart. I have sfound that the whole carriage must be pulled out the back of the toaster. About 10 T10 screws to be removed from the base then there are are a couple more philips screws to remove after the back is off, then the handles that you press down to allow the bread to drop mus t be released. There are plastic pieces that hold in the metal tip on the handles. They are located inside the body and are accessewd from the slot that the handle moves in. I haven't yet located the release clips for the high lift handles. Once I have found them I may be able to access the mechanisms. If this doesn't help enough then please ask for more information as I shall have found my way inside by then

Tefal avanti hi speed 4 slice toaster one side not working, Not staying down Left side right side ok


When the push down lever hits the bottom it pushes another little lever which makes contact with the positive and negative terminals. over time, these terminals get ever so slightly bent, especially if you start pushing the lever down hard. what you have to do is take the toaster apart, get to the positive and negative terminals and pinch back into shape with some pliers. you should understand once you look at it. Then put back together. if it doesn't work then it's likely a component has gone so, unless you have a multi-meter and a soldering iron I wouldn't suggest doing this.

Oh yeah, unplug it before you do anything.

Problem with the CUISINART RBT-450BKPC costco toaster


We had exact the same problem. Our problem was within the circuit board controlling the release relay, on the left side. 3 parts was dead:
1) rectifier diode 200V 1amp
2) Electrolytic capacitor 220uF 25V
3 Zener diode 12V 1W
These components supplies 12VDC to the rest of the circuits from the mains, 127 VAC.

Can you email the user manual for tefal toaster avanti deluxe for me to download please


Hello Val,

Here's the link directly to Tefal's site where you can select the exact toaster manual from the list provided. I wasn't sure of the exact model, since Tefal has two (2) Avante Deluxe model toasters available (both a 2 and 4 slice version) and sometimes the Fixya site only has a limited selection for certain products for users to request assistance with.

In any case, they are all on the page at the link below. Simply click and you'll get a free manual that you can save or print out for your use and future reference.

http://www.t-falusa.com/tefal/Consumer_service/Use_instructions/HomeUseInstructionsTemplateFile.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID=%7bC41F9AC8-8DCD-439E-8171-0CA2B8E9C7E3%7d&NRORIGINALURL=%2fConsumer%2bservice%2fUse%2binstructions%2fuse-instructions_home%2ehtm&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest

If it doesn't come up, simply select "toasters" from the pull down window on the screen and hit "go"

I also have a folder on my computer that I've labeled "Household Appliances and Equipment" into which I save an electronic copy of all Owner's Manuals and Guides for all the appliances we have, just so they're readily available without having to search the web for them.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
