T-Fal Avante Bagel Tpaster - 4 slice

One side (2 slices) of my toaster will not lock when I press the lever down. The elements do not heat up. I recently moved the toaster and turned it on its side, so I am thinking that something came loose inside. I'm very partial to this toaster & would like to use both sides.

The element is broken . Try to put the element back together. Mine was broken near the rivet under the slice who holding the element in place. Very hard to find. You need to pull on the element to see if it s loose or fix properly.

Just to add a note of caution. Be very careful pulling on the heating element, as they become very brittle and can not be flexed when they do.

Hi my girlfriend just gave me this toaster, and would like to know what the lighted buttons are for thanks


Since you don't mention the make or model number of the toaster or its age I can only make the following guesses.
It might be an electronic model. To test if this is the case, leave the toaster unplugged and push the lever of the toaster down. If it does not stay down it is an electronic toaster. If it stays down then it is NOT electronic.
The lights might be lighted push buttons.
If you plug the toaster in then put a slice of bread or two in and push the lever handle down and one light comes on then this is probably a dual purpose pushbutton. It indicates that the heating elements are on and if you push it will cancel the toasting cycle and the bread slices should pop up.
If there is a button beside the above button it could be for extending the toaster cycle time a bit longer to compensate for a thicker slice or a denser bread like a bagel. If you push it, it will light up to let you know that the cycle has been extended for this reason.
If there is a button beside this one, it could be for extending the toasting cycle to compensate for a frozen slice of bread or whatever, like a bagel or even a frozen waffle.
If you find the make and model for your toaster, it might be on the bottom somewhere, google it to see if you can download an instruction manual for it.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Toastmaster B1042 toasts only one side of one slice and both sides of other slice


The is by design. The bagel side only heats on one side because of the bagel not needing to be toasted .

Received 2 slice toaster (kitchenaid) as a gift - from the very 1st time it was used, only the outer coils would heat up, so only 1/2 of each slice ever gets toasted!!! Anyone who could help solve this...


I think it is set to cook bagels. Check the control settings.
Most toasters have a bagel setting which only cooks the
sliced side of the bagel. This model is designed to accept bagels. Hope this helps.

Tefal avanti hi speed 4 slice toaster one side not working, Not staying down Left side right side ok


When the push down lever hits the bottom it pushes another little lever which makes contact with the positive and negative terminals. over time, these terminals get ever so slightly bent, especially if you start pushing the lever down hard. what you have to do is take the toaster apart, get to the positive and negative terminals and pinch back into shape with some pliers. you should understand once you look at it. Then put back together. if it doesn't work then it's likely a component has gone so, unless you have a multi-meter and a soldering iron I wouldn't suggest doing this.

Oh yeah, unplug it before you do anything.

Tfal 2-slice toaster repair


look inside your toaster. there must be something inside it turn it down and see if something comes out.. if nothing is inside then try to see if the cord that you switched on is not broken. if you see a liitle bit scratch mark on it- switch off. You can get a electric shock. it is your favorite toaster so try to consult a electricion to fix the cord for you.
