Question about KitchenAid KTT340 2-Slice Toaster

1 Answer

I am trying to take apart the toaster, but am having problems figuring out how to. On the bottom I removed the cord clamp and there is a black plastic piece on the bottom that appears to be a snap, however I can't seem to get it to release. Any tricks to this or could someone describe how to do this. My real problem is both the metal pieces that hold up toast have fallen out and I need to put them back in and bend them to stay in.

You need to remove the four rubber feet at the four corners, and that's where the screws are. Get a small flathead screwdriver and pry the rubber feet out of their sockets and you'll see small screws.

Go to the Hamiton Beach website to see if your series has been recalled. I have same model, can't get base off and found recall notice looking for help. My series wasn't but yours might be. Good luck, might get a new toaster!

My TRO651 Toaster-R-Oven does not work on any function and the blue light does not come on. I removed the right side cover and checked all the connections, then I cleaned the two sets of contacts with fine...


May not be too hard to fix. On the thermostat, you will see 5 wires coming from it. black and white on top (leave those alone), and on the bottom of the switch, there are red white and blue wires.
The white wire with the burnt connector(from use) is the problem. I had that switch apart, seen how it works. The 3 wires at the bottom (red, white, blue) is like a spst center off switch with white being the common center wire. Red is for oven, and blue is for toaster. After I rebuilt the switch the first time, and it happened again, I just bypassed switch by connecting that burnt bottom white connector, to the red timer wire connector. Oven will work, toaster will not. The oven turns off when timer runs out. Can also unplug or turn down thermostat all the way so it does not use much power when done using till timer runs out. If you have a spst(center off) switch, you can mount that too to the side panel if you find one rated for it. Just make sure the bottom white wire is used as the common center wire.
B&D will not sell that switch that is broken. I tried that before I took that switch apart. Glad I did take it apart as I am sure their new switch would have failed quickly as well.

The left side of the toaster will not go down when I push the Toast/Cancel button. The right side works fine. Any help is appeciated.


My toaster started having this same problem. After several tries of unplugging and replugging with no luck, I decided to try to take it apart. Without a special screwdriver, you can't remove the bottom. I did remove the crumb trays and scraped a few pieces of stuff that had baked itself to the sides and bottom. After carefully cleaning both sides, I took it back in and replugged. Everything works fine. The left side is used more than the right and had debris built up. I think it must have stuck the wire frame that is supposed to move the toaster up and down. I used a long screwdriver to scrape out the debris. It was burnt on. MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE PLUG FROM POWER BEFORE STICKING ANYTHING METAL IN THE TOASTER.

Bread toaster doesnt work


It could be the slide button connections or loose wires. You would have to take it apart to try and figure it out. It should be under warranty, though. I don't know if the box is required. You'll have to ask Back to Basics about that.

Bulbs for infrared toaster oven


Blue Devil,

The bulbs are available from the Panasonic parts store (Google), however I called Panasonic service and they could not explain to me how to take the toaster apart or tell me how much the repair would be. I partially disassembled the toaster and still could not figure out how to replace the bulb. Sorry. Good luck.

Toaster lights go out


Your problem sounds like there is a poor connection somewhere. If you can open up the appliance check all the wire connections going in and out of the electronic display unit. If there are no obvious connection problems, try unplugging wire connectors and re-plugging them back in. If you have any sprays for connections with switches and circuitry you can use them as well. The screws holding toasters together are usually on the bottom, hidden by the rubber grips or some other clip. DO NOT plug the toaster in while it is pulled apart!

I have a Black & Decker CT0649 toaster oven. The timer switch on the toast control does not work and I took it out and took it apart. There is no way I can put is back together. Black and Decker will not sell me a new one!

If you have a broken Black & Decker CTO649 I would be interested in purchasing the two timer switches in it before you through it out, $5.00/each. (Negotiable).

I can be reached at alan.s.bitzer@power.alstom.com

Thanks

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.

The level of the toaster doesn't lock


I doubt if you can fix this without taking the unit apart. Usually it is not that difficult to remove the cover. Unplug the unit. Turn the toaster upside down and remove the screws holding the outside case on. The case usually slides off or by springing the bottom of the sides out you should be able to remove it. Once the cover is off it should be easy and obvious to fix the problem you described. When you have the unit secured reverse the order to assemble the unit and you should be back in business. Good luck.
