Dualit toaster short circuit


Is not an open curcuit but a short curcuit. Means that one of the wire conections you have made is either contact with toasters body or one contact is touching with other contact. So you need to have all contacts of the toaster from the bottom side to see if their are clear to each other or from the toasters body

Trps the breaker as soon as switched on


Check the wire for any cuts, burns or kinks. You may have a short in the wire or inside the toaster (two wires are touching or arcing causing the breaker to trip).

Als take a picture before remove the wires on the timer since you might forget how to put them back on the new switch since it can not be repaired

Our Dualit toaster doesn't work. The red light doesn't work. I have changed the fuse in the socket with a working one. The timer turns normally. Yet none of the heating units heats...


You need to replace the timer-contactor. This part is acting both as timer and electrical contactor. It consist from electrical contact moved with springs on and off. Due to electrical load and extreme heat these contact have been tear out thus they can not contact properly and in your case they don't contact at all.
So from the web page of dualit or ebay you can order A new timer contactor and replace it.

I changed the element in my Dualit toaster; still doesn't work


If I understand well the blackened wire is an overheated wire which it is probably but off in one point so no electricity comes to the element anymore.
However overheated wire in you metalic toaster is a very danger thing to have and need to replace all the wires you have noticed that they changed color or not look good contition.
The problem have been caused from a problematic element which is the one you have already replaced.
However you if after you replace the wires you need to inspect the toaster after some time in order to be sure that not any other element causing the problem.
Good luck.

Dualit toaster - timer sticking.


The dualit all electrical parts like elements and timer switch are all manufacture in china and they are not as they used to be. I have a customer with a toaster of 25 years old and we have replace only one heating element up to now. For recent models we replace electrical parts in about 2 to 3 years, some times every year as you describe.
