Question about Cuisinart CPT-50 Heat Surround Toaster

Open Question

I have an old Cuisinart CPT-50 Toaster. I loved

I have an old Cuisinart CPT-50 Toaster, with motorized bread lowering and lifting. I loved the toaster for the two years or so that it worked. It been years since it did work. The Motor Rise feature is still operational. However, it does not heat at all. This toaster does not use conventional heating coils. It uses something call Heat Surround. Can it be fixed?

SOURCE: my cuisinart cpt 160 toaster won't start

Do any of the lights come on ?

If not then have you checked the plug top fuse

If the lights come on and then when you press the lever down it does not latch a solenoid has gone open circuit

Good toasters can be fixed

Cheap ones go in the trash bin

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!

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.

My Cuisinart Toaster's left side lights up


I repaired a problem with one of the sides of my CPT-180 toaster that was fixed by replacing C1. This may be the same component that Stan was referring to, as the C1 capacitor on the circuit board I was having problems with was bulging. I've attached some photos showing C1 bulged out compared to C1 on the good board.
C1 is the main power supply capacitor and if it goes bad, the circuit board power supply won't function correctly. This can lead to a broad spectrum of problems like the lever not staying down or the toasting control/timing circuits malfunctioning. If you replace the capacitor, it is best in most cases to replace with the same value as the orginal (220uf on my toaster)---you can usually get a replacement capacitor at Fry's Electronics. Replacing with a higher capacitance may be acceptable, but you should understand the impact to the rest of the circuit before you substitute a higher capacitance value. The voltage rating and temperature rating of the replacement capacitor should be the same or greater or the capacitor will fail quickly. Note the max temperature rating of capacitor C1 is +105C---toasters get hot (duh!) and the temperature around the circuit board of this model gets quite warm, so the temperature rating of the capacitor is critical. Finally, make sure the substitute capacitor fits when installed (requires soldering) and does not interfere with surrounding circuitry or other toaster mechanics when the circuit board is put back in place.

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.

I'm looking for an instruction manual for CPT-60. Do I have to hit "2 slice" if just toasting bread or just put it in?

Toaster won't stay in down position in order to toast - Cuisinart CPT-160 - although it will toast if I hold the lever down as it toasts


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.

Only toasts part of bread


The solution I got from the FixYa team was: "Get a new toaster." Which is how I ended up with 4 new toasters that don't work. I'm glad I didn't PAY for THAT answer.

Toaster burns everything


It sounds like the heating sensor is longer functioning and the toaster is probably kaput, unless you can find an independent repairman who works on small appliances. In my own experience even a pricey toaster last about 3-5 years. I had the same problem with the same brand, just a different style
