Is the electrical outlet working? Plug something else in (a lamp perhaps) and see if there is power to the plug.

Why is the toaster dead? Is there an internal fuse that could be changed?


No, there is no fuse. There is a safety thermostat that detects when the toaster gets too hot and will shut it off. However, it is very unlikely that this has gone bad.

Most likely, there is a problem in the mechanical linkage that turns on an internal switch when the toaster bar is pushed down.

The other possibility, which is far less likely, is that the power cord has a break in it. Sometimes, if the toaster is moved around frequently, the power cord gets flexed too much and then breaks where the cord enters the power plug. Fixing this involves replacing the power plug. To diagnose this, you can carefully hold the power cord in slightly different positions and see if the toaster powers up in any position.

How to polish the outside of a dualit toaster


To clean the outside of a dualit toaster? If it is plastic, I would use soap and hot water. Only with a wash cloth any other (such as a scrapers, scouring pad, sos pad) are to hard on the plastic and will leave scrap marks. If it's an aluminum toaster I would use a cleanser like (aluminum cream or spray) to clean it. And the toaster will look like new.

Krupa fep2 toaster... Was working fine ...but now, no power indicating and lever won't stay drown nor turn on heat?


Make sure the socket you are plugging into is working by plugging in another appliance or radio etc. Check the fuse in the plug if it has one, this is the most likely problem, if it is ok you will need to do continuity checks from the plug through to the insides of the toaster to check if it is the switch or thermal fuse inside the toaster.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

Right side stopped working


In the manual:

Check to see if the toaster is plugged in; if it is, unplug the toaster, then plug it back in again.

A tone will sound when the toaster is plugged into a live electrical outlet.

If no tone sounds, check the electrical circuit the toaster is connected to -

is a fuse blown or a circuit-breaker tripped in your home?

At least with "unplugging and plug it back again in the electrical outlet" the right side of our toaster works again. The tone that should sound with plugging in didn't work...

The toaster does not heat and it's only 6 mos. old.


1. check outlet where you plug in your toaster with lamp or vacuum.
jiggle plug of lamp or vacuum while plugged in to check for bad outlet.

if lamp or vacuum do not work, check breaker panel/fuse box for tripped breaker/blown fuse.
if breaker/fuse okay, replace outlet.
if lamp or vacuum work okay, go to next step

2. plug toaster back into outlet, jiggle plug, then jiggle cord at plug, then jiggle cord at toaster.
this checks for intermittent power cord.

if cord okay, check that the toaster lever or toast basket are not blocked from going completely down.
might be a bit of bread, muffin, bagel that blocks the basket.

if all okay, you need other solutions.....

Russell Hobbs 10617 led bar


may have screws on the bottom and the loader knob usually has to be pried off. Place soft wood like a ruler against the housing and pry carefully from side to side with a large screwdriver. After working on it, plug it in outside to a ground-fault ac plug on a fireproof surface to test.

Very hard to remove the plastic cover from the toaster - Must Release Circuit Card First To my fellow owners of a KTT261. We have enjoyed using our KitchenAid toaster for many years but it eventually got so gummed up we could no longer reliably push the handle down to make toast AND it would also fail to latch or stay latched until the toasting cycle was completed. Not wanting to throw it out I wanted to try repairing it, but there was little info available online. So if you ever need to remove the plastic cover for maintenance here are a few tips. Of course UN-PLUG THE TOASTER COMPLETELY AND LET IT COOL DOWN TO ROOM TEMP!!! Remove the 4 screws on the bottom, two on each narrow side holding the top plastic cover to the bottom and pull off the plastic handle on the right which drops the bread down into the toaster cavity. That is the only obvious task. You will now notice that the cover still can't be removed because something on the right side near the front control panel isn't letting the cover detach from the base. That something is the control panel itself mounted into a white plastic holder glued to the cover and it's very short ribbon cable joining the two electronic circuit cards on the right near the handle which are mounted to the base. What to do. Using a long pair of needle nose pliers, or very small fingers and a long narrow screwdriver -or- all of the above and a second pair of hands, you must release the credit card sized front control panel electronic circuit card from the white plastic holder glued to the blue plastic toaster cover. This is not easy, but ultimately I was able to do it with my wife's help and repaired the toaster nicely. The control panel circuit card is held into the holder by a plastic latch at the top middle of the card. The latch protrudes thru a hole in the card. The bottom of the circuit card fits into 3 finger grooves on the holder. So the task is to release the upper plastic latch by moving it upward, while pushing the card away from the white plastic holder glued to the toaster cover then it will lift out of the bottom groove and be free of the cover. Then you can remove the cover completely, examine and fix the latching mechanism ...etc. IMPORTANT - Remember to study how it was held in originally, what orientation the parts were to each other, because the even harder part for us later after fixing the toaster latching mechanism was to reverse these steps and re-insert the control panel circuit card back into the holder...oye! There is just barely, ...barely, enough length in the ribbon cable connecting the control panel card to the base electronics to do this. Putting it back together was made difficult, because the upper plastic latch on the white plastic holder which secures the control panel circuit card to the cover against it's membrane switches required an enormous force to get the circuit card to latch. I thought I was going to break the card itself, but it did snap into place, barely. Good Luck, "I'm pullin for ya, we're all in this together" (Red-Green)
