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.

I have a TV that shows power on (red light on front of TV), but nothing on scree. TV model is LG 42LN5300-UB


Check the various voltages coming from the power supply board and see if they are all ok, there is a legend on the power supply board to show what voltages are at what pins on the connectors,the 5 volt standby we know is good as long as the set has sound, but check the others

There are two printed circuit boards inside front of toaster - One PC board for each side. The circuit board on the side that won't latch down in the "toasting" position , is defective. Now, does anyone have access to a schematic for this toaster?

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.

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.

"Down lever" doesn't stay down


You can try taking the toaster over to the kitchen sink and hold it upside down. Shake the heck out of it and you may dislodge something (like an old breadcrumb) in the switch. I've had to do this numerous times. You have to flip it upright, shake it, turn it upside down and shake it again -repeat until nothing comes out and nothing sounds like it's rolling around in the toaster.

Amp MC-D80. No Indication of power on.Checked power supply board(no schematic). No + or - 12v. All other voltages seem ok. Any known common failure? Thanks Art


Simply follow the 12v supply back to where it starts, which should be where the transformer wires join the PC Board. If you don't have 12v AC there the transformer has gone. If you do, then follow it with your multimeter till it goes. That will lead you to the culprit.

Our toaster stopped working a little while ago, but it is outside the (presumably) one year warranty period. It's a 4 slice, soft touch black toaster, cost about £75, I think it is this model. It only...


remove from the electricity supply
remove crumb tray,
remove bottom 4 os 6 screws.
at the bottom of the toaster there is what liooks like a flat fish hook that engages with the handle when you push the handle down to start toasting. clean around this and try to get it to engage when you push the handle down, it wont stay down unless the electricity is connected but dont plug it in as you will probably kill your self!!
put it back together abd try it
if it does not work 4 slice toaster from Tesco £9.99
