Question about Vacuums

I have Sunbeam 'Radiant Contol' TOASTERMATIC toaster. Must be 40 years old - and only recently stopped toasting. Is there anyone who might fix this - I think the radiant coils have burnt out. I live in Kings Cross - Sydney. It was my mothers - so it has sentimental value.

If tension setting in toaster gets to excessive it will not trigger the switch to turn on when a person puts bread in toaster slot. To fix this open clean out door and you will find a small screw in the center of toaster. This screw adjusts the tension when putting bread in toaster and will restore tension to activate the switch. Remember this setting is very sensitive and should only take a slight turn to restore to factory setting.

There could a number of reasons why it has stopped working and depending on the problem it could be a simple fix but generally not. It is after all an old toaster as you realise. On the bottom is a model number AT-35 AT-40 or TA-J. It depends on what part is sentimental as the outside and ends and base can be transferred over to a working mechanism. I have a few of these toasters and think they are just great.

I am trying to repair a Sunbeam Model T-35 radiant control toaster. Everything is working but I can't seem to get the timer control (for setting light and dark) set correctly. Is there some...


I have/had a similar problem. Here's how I fixed it.
UNPLUG THE TOASTER
1. Clean the crumbs out throughly. I removed the bottom of the toaster (6 screws) to make sure all the debris was removed. Use a soft brush. Replace bottom and tighten screws. 2. Gently brush the sensor area in the 'one slice' slot with a soft brush. 3. Remove 'darker-lighter' knob. I gently pried mine off with a small screwdriver. 4. Plug toaster in. 5. Put a slice of your usual bread in the 'one slice' slot. 6. Watch it toast. 7. When 'done' to your liking slowly rotate the control counter clockwise using a small screwdriver until the toaster stops toasting. 8. Replace knob with the pointer at the mid point (up and down) to allow for minor adjustments.

My toaster oven elements heat up pretty quickly and then go out for a few minutes and them come back on and keep doing that....toast doesn't get done because of it and tonight I tried to cook some hot...


You trouble is intermittent operation. Fix it by checking the thermostat and power button switch also the cord. Check it use a analog tester set to Rx1. All of that is test through continuity, so if there no fluctuation in the meter reading, there is defective parts. An intermittent part(s) operate sometimes good and sometimes bad. Check those parts carefully.
Good luck.

My toast willl not pop up to retrieve it sits lower than the toaster


I have the same problem with some breads. Mine is also set up for bagels, and the bread goes further into the toaster. When it pops up, it then drops back down just enough where I'm not about to stick my fingers into the darn thing......sound familiar? The only thing that I've found that helps is that, when the toast pops up, and then drops back down, I lift up on the lever that you push down to start the toast, and I can lift the toast up about an inch, and safely remove it. Try this, and see if it works for you.
Best regards, --W/D--

One side of toaste doesn,t heat.


You did not give any description of the toaster so if it is a basic two slice pop-up unit the following applies, the contact operated by the pop up mechanism may not be functioning. The other problem could be that the element on that side has a burnt out winding. You will need to remove the cover in either case - name sure that the toaster is unplugged when you do this

We have an sunbeam electric blanket model BL 0750 We dont seem to be able to programme it to heat up. Control lights are flashing


Hi. If you have a double or queen size blanket, switch the controls from one side to the other. If the fault follows the control, then the control is faulty. If the fault stays on the same side of the bed, then the blanket may be faulty. Most recent Sunbeam models have 3 years warranty. Once you've checked the controls, if it's under warranty call Sunbeam Customer Service on 1800025059 option 1 to report a warranty issue.

Otherwise: if the control is at fault, a new BL0750 has a recommended retail of $75.20. Get in contact with your local Sunbeam Service Centre via http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/Repairers.aspx
but if all else fails email me as I'm happy to help!

1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft bushing

Generic problem for all Vacuums
1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft...
Posted by mower man on Jun 08, 2008
I have a late 50's series Sunbeam twin-blade electric lawn mower that I use regularly. The shaft bushing(s) on the left blade has worn out, and there's too much play for me to run it w/o ruining the machine.
It appears that the belt-run cog inside the housing is the part that is supposed to come off of the shaft to get to the bushings, but instead of a cotter pin or other fastener holding the cog in place, it looks like a rolled metal pin that may have been pressed in place.
How do I replace the shaft bushings so I can keep using this great vintage appliance!? I found a website that supplies parts for this model year, but no schematics or user manuals. Thanks!


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. This website is for vacuums and you would need to contact a local lawn mower shop in the yellow pages, they are amazing about the way they can fix old lawnmowers.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
