Question about Cuisinart CPT-50 Heat Surround Toaster

1 Answer

Broken ceramic tube that contains the heater coil in my toaster

Hi, I have a "Cuisinart Heat Surround Motor Rize Electronic Toaster" Model # CPT-50. My ex-fiance broke one of the two ceramic tubes inside the toaster that the heater coil wire feeds through, so it only toasts on one side. This means I have to turn over anything I toast, to toast one side at a time. I can live with this, but it would be a lot easier IF I didn't have to. I need a new ceramic tube and a new heater coil wire. I really LOVE this toaster, so I don't want a new one. My husband is an electrical engineer, so I am confident that he could repair it, but I don't know where to find the parts & I need a manual...the manual that came with it got lost many moves ago. OR...I would be willing to take it to a Small Appliance Repair shop, but I just moved to Las Vegas, NV & have no idea where to find one. Lastly, I will be in Kansas City, MO for 3 weeks this summer, so I could bring the toaster with me & take it to a repair shop there. Please advise and thanks for your time!!--Diana Lee

SOURCE: toaster won't stay in down position

We opened up our toaster and scraped some baked-on crumbs off the top of the electromagnet that controls the carriage catch. When we closed it back up, it worked again.

How do i Opened my cuisinart toaster cpt180


The Instruction Booklet for the Cuisinart CPT-180C Classic Metal 4-Slice Toaster can be found at the following link:

http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/CPT-180C_en.pdf


Not sure what you are trying to open. There is a slide out catch tray for cleaning crumbs. There is no information in the booklet that suggests a need or a way to open the toaster.

Perhpas reviewing the booklet will answer your question.

Toaster latch does not stay down on Cusinart CPT-120 compact two slice toaster


for Cuisinart cpt160: If the latch will not stay down it is because the electromagnet at the base of the toaster, which is supposed to activate when you push the handle down, is burnt out. I pulled my toaster apart and did a test of that mechanism and found that the solenoid was fried (open circuit). There are no replacement parts.

The handle on the toaster popped off. the hooklike thing is still there and not broken. how do I get it to stay on?


Get a metal epoxy from the local hardware store for about $5. Most are heat resistant to 300 degrees (confirm on the package). Apply it to the cover according to the instructions.

Wish I did that when mine came off. I've lost it now and there are no replacement parts!

We received a Model CPT 140 toaster. There was no Manual in box.


Hello RFord,

We're not the manufacturer of consumer products, but rather a group of regular people that have expertise about certain products and how to service and repair them locate manuals and schematics, etc.

With that in mind, here's an online copy of the manual for your toaster that you can download for free, directly from the Cuisinart web site that will get you by until you can obtain one from the manufacturer directly.

http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/cpt-140.pdf

I'd save a copy on your computer and then you can print it out, if you wish. You can also contact Cuisinart directly and request a manual be mailed to you, as it wasn't included with your toaster.

You can either email or call them. Their toll free phone number is 1-800-211-9604. If you wish, you can also visit the customer support info at this link: http://www.cuisinart.com/support/us.html

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

When i push the lever down to make toast, it does not stay


This is a problem, our old toaster had this problem, and it would only work if we jammed the handle down, but don't try this, only because ours broke after we tried this, but if you can send it to the manufacturure, they should be able to fix this. If you don't what to do this, please phone me at 505 9181, but please call me from 8:00-10:00, 2:30-8:00.
