Need local service for my toaster

The heating element on our toaster is no longer working. My son stuck a metal knife into the unit while it was plugged in. He is fine, but he toaster is not. There was a big spark and no more heat. I need to find someone to fix it locally. I live in a suburb north of Chicago. Any suggestions?

Heating element on toaster oven have mercury in them

No they don't. If they did it would be online and they would never get through inspection anyway. Mercury is expensive, but you do find mercury in all florescent tubes and compact florescent lamps in very small quantities. Toaster oven elements are radiant and have a metal element inside a ceramic glass tube.

Can I get parts for a Bravetti convection toaster oven, specifically upper elements?

Fixya does not sell replacement heating elements. Try checking with a local appliance parts supplier.

Only the side elements are working on the toaster. The middle elements which would toast one side of a slice of bread are not working. Is it possible to repair/replace the middle elements?

Maybe. Unplug the toaster and remove the bottom plate as you would for cleaning. look for the wires connected to the middle elements and see if one has become disconnected or broken. If one or more of the connections to the middle element is a quick disconnect type (click link for a picture), then inspect it for overheating, oxidation or corrosion. You may be able to clean it up with a Scotch-brite metal polishing pad.

On my toaster, the connections to the heater elements are metal strips riveted to tabs from the element assemblies. One strip is riveted to the power neutral; the other has a quick disconnect tab for a wire from the thermostat. A loose or broken rivet could be the problem, but do not use an aluminum pop rivet to repair it. It can't take the heat, even if you could find one small enough.

I've seen toaster heater elements evaporate over the years - they get a hot spot, which burns off metal, making it thinner and hotter until finally there's nothing left there. At that point the element is gone. I suppose if you could find nichrome ribbon wire of the same width and thickness as the original, you could rebuild the heating element plate, but it would be a delicate task because the mica insulating material is fragile. It's probably more practical to scavenge a working heater assembly from another toaster of similar design, if the electrical connections are serviceable with the tools you have.

Unless this is a very fancy unit, it's probably cheaper and easier to scrap it out and replace the whole thing.

Toaster lever stuck in down position

I just fixed my Breville CT75XL Ikon 4-Slice toaster which was stuck in the on-down position. Wife said it heated up the whole kitchen and finally unplugged it. There are tamper proof screws as well as needle nose pliers needed to disassemble what appears to be a unit that is not intended to take apart or service. All I did was release the mechanism that holds and powers on the device then scrape the metal contacts with an emery board. Unit works but this buys me time to find a replacement. It won't be another 170 dollar disposable Breville made in China that's for sure. Only got 3 years 4 months use, family of 2, which is pathetic.

Toaster no longer heats. Can I purchase the heating element and install myself?

mcdevito75 here, Chances are the heating elements are soldered in on the toaster and may take special tools to fix, if the heating elements sre burned out, maybe better to get another toaster.

Out Dualit toaster keeps blowing the fuse. It's

Probably one wire Loosen up or a wire from one heating element have cut off and is contacting the metal body of the toaster. You need a good visual insect of your toaster, you may use a flush light to see inside the electriacl elents and also open the bottom base to insect the wire conections to the heating element.
I beleive one or more heating elements is the problem and you need to replace them.
Good Luck
