The arm that holds the toast fell out when the toaster was turned upside down. Is there a diagram that shows how it is installed. It's not readily apparent.

    The manual is instructive on operation, but nothing on how to replace the "arm" that fell out.

  • nz8131 Sep 08, 2010

    The Alessi manual shows how the exterior parts come together, clearly. However the interior is not shown at all.

    What I would like is Exploded View or any details of the interior of the toaster.

Fix sunbeam 3806 toaster that won't stay down and therefore heat bread.


Just a guess since I have had the same happen to my Proctor Sillex - When you push down the lever, you are actually completing the transformer frame that then magnetically keeps the toast down until it's setting lets the toaster pop up.
In my case, a piece of toast was wedged and I could not get the handle down so that the hardware was in place to magnetically hold. Have you tried to give your toaster a good thorough shaking upside down, unplugged over the garbage can or the sink?
Good luck Eric

My 4 slice Dualit toaster stopped working! Repair?


I had an issue where it wouldn't stay down, or heat even if I held it down. No power at all.

Firstly unplug it.

To take it apart, turn it upside down. You have to get the 4 security bolts undone which are underneath (Mine look like they have six holes around them).
Also, you need to unscrew the bobble by hand which you use to push the toast down. You can then pull the cover off, from the back first. The timer dial is connected to the cover, but I didn't disconnect this.

Note: You don't need to undo the bolts inside the toaster. (They only hold the metal base to the plastic base), the 4 torx screws holding the side panel on, or the 4 twisted pieces of metal which hold the toaster internals to the base.

Inside, there are 4 prongs which are pushed together when you push the toast down. On further inspection, I found the main blue power cable had become corroded, and had melted and become disconnected. So simply unscrewed the 2 screws hold this section on,(simply for easier access) and resoldered the blue cable back onto the correct prong.

And now it works again!

The toaster arms will not stay down on either side , have power to the toaster and can see the elements light when arm is held down but won't stay down.


First, turn it to the darkest setting. It may be set too light to stay down. Also, try cleaning it out. Take it outside and turn it upside down and shake it. Also, open the crumb door on the bottom. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Help with toaster. anyone there?


Well, I'm not a toaster pro, but I do make my fair share of toast.... I have an idea for you, I researched your product and couldn't find any specific help but try this:
Unplug your toaster, firmly hold the mechanism in the down position as far down as it will go, then turn the unit upside down, give it a good shake and flip the lever a bit. Reinvert, plug it in and see if you've got any improvement. (I think I learned this trick from the Andy Griffith show... you know old Emmett and the fix it shop) let me know if it worked! Sorry I can't be more help.

Russell Hobbs RH2T toaster bread won't stay down w/o hold handle


Hi, most new toaster have a selenoid that hold down the handle while toasting then release when done so a spring bring the toast up. Possible problem with the selenoid, the electronic circuit that controls it or the plate that the selenoid holds. When you lower the handle you close the contacts of the AC line inside the toaster so if the handle is raised there is no power.

The digital control panel is on the fritz,


We ran into the same problem today with our toaster. There was never a problem before I cleaned it--not only by sliding out the crumb drawer, but by turning it upside down to dislodge every last crumb. After that, It would not stay down when pushed down--and none of the buttons were functional.

My husband took the cover off and found that a magnet is what keeps the lever down when the toaster's on, and allows it to go back up when the toasting is done. It's an electro magnet that works only when the toaster is on. It seems that when I turned the unit upside down and rightside up again, crumbs landed on the magnet's contact plates (which are about 1/4" x 1/2") and would not allow the magnet to engage. Because the magnet wouldn't engage, the lever would not stay down, and the toaster shut off. Brush off the magnets, replace the cover and toast away!

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.
