Question about Hobart ET27 4-Slice Toaster

1 Answer

Input voltage Hi, I just purchased a ET27/5 used, it is marked 208 volt. I opened the electrical box expecting to be able to change it to 120 or 240 but their is only two terminals and no jumpers, I tried changeing the configuration for 120 or 240 Wye/Delta but does not toast right (takes too long). I did try 240 with the original configuration (too fast and dark). I only have 240 volt or 120 how can I make this work?

What's a C1 capacitor in a circuit board for a toaster?

Hi Ismael ,what's goin on. How are you ? Hope well .
So ...... I have some info for you to your Q. .
I think the most important part or the key point to know is understanding the Capicitor , capacitive circuits , and what the numbers mean .
Well I have my Master in Electricty and is the only job I've ever had for well over 30 years and I have over the years rewritten many electrical apparatus , parts , or components , definitions and functions for easy understanding to others . In my college texts in the electrical industries , (there are very many ) I find them really complex to understand for ones who simply just want a basic knowledge of comprehensive elementary use of . So here is some of the parts of term papers I wrote about in school and hope they help
THIS component used in a circuit is for the simple ability to store higher or more volt /amps , the than the volts applied and to discharge it's total amount in or at a specific time or when triggered by another device when called for.
The capacitors work is to apply a ELECTROMOTIVE FORCE or
EMF (volts ) of a higher voltage that is 600 % more than applied volts to start a component than the applied voltage can do but takes longer thus creating heat and eventually failure
Once the capacitor sudden disharge or release of all its enrgy,
they recharge themselves with same circuit as the applied voltages or a portion of that voltage from another circuit in time.
Much like a car battery , only a battery is not to disharge it's power all at once.
In a nutshell hungh . You should read the electrical mathematicians vol. 3 edition ....whew ...
ok so like here is your applied example on the above , and then we will get to the toaster.
Im going to use a window air conditioner as a very simple example:
when you plug the a/c in the applied voltage is 110 v. In this circuit
it maintains a 110 volts throughout the unit and in and out the controls , the devices or components to continue circuits to function and work or run . The motor is the biggest power consumer. When it is off or at a stand still ( the shaft is not rotating and the rotor (shaft ) is at a dead stop ) a huge amount of power
will have to be used to even just get it to move, let alone rotate 1 time . So ahead of this we use a capacitor to jump start that rotor
to wake it up, get it to rolling or rotate .once it has got the momentum going the Applied 120!volts takes over and then full speed is obtained and maintained for the out put of that rotor to perform work . In the meantime the capacitor is being charged for the next start up .This process is quick and most times instantaneous. For some math to show what it would take to start the rotor to even turn with the applied volts
e =120
i= ????
v/a x 600%
e x I = ? 120 x600 = 3600 volts
Thats a lot of power . Keep in mind though it can reach3600 v
but so fast it begins to drop before it even starts ,,,instantaneous.

Now For the numbers on the boards they are a reference to as there are more capacitors in this board and it is to denote the location on the board , what it controls and capacitors size in a separate printed schematic As in Capacitor #1 or C1 . In a schematic it will show like this
C1- .03 micro farrad capacitor . For R2 (relay # 2 ) to M1(motor on air cond.
then in order
C2 - .08 ? ( ? is close to the correct symbol used to represent micro farrad ) and .o8 is the amount or size of Cap.
Notice the value in my example....MICRO BUT .08 .......8 hundredths to the micro .08 x 000,000,001 negative it's rather small now ....HUHUHHAHA . Well there you go and this my freind
is as simple as it will ever get.
When I was going through my journymans years we had a warehouse full of electrical parts . And thousands of different sizes of Caps. So Huhuhaha , what we would do is take an old extension cord , expose the wires and strip only the very ends of the two wires , plug the other end in to the wall receptacle and charge a capacitor about the size of a deck of cards or two decks of cards , and when a apprentice or a grunt walks close by , I would toss the charged capacitor his way and say HEADS UP !
Well his first reaction is to catch the dang thing and POW .
He drops it as fast if not faster than he caught it . Huhuhaha
remember That 600. %. or 3600 volts , we discussed well there ya go ..... They will catch it every single time's harmless in this state ,BUT it's a shocking experience.!!! Let me if this helps for your toaster , in identifying what C1 goes to . Hint : probably the elements that heat up red and heat up quick .

Get back with me when you get a chance . After all a it only becomes an answer after a solution is given
Adios ,,,,A. Goodwin

Is a Rowenta DW 5080 240 volt available for Australia

all electrical equipment imported into Australia have to conform to Australian electrical regulations and that includes insulation properties ,voltage
Basically if it is not on the market then it is not 240 volts so if you are considering buying overseas then it is not advisable as it will be the wrong voltage and will fall short in meeting the strict regulations for electrical equipment

My ET-26 Hobart toaster will not cook 2 slices on either side unless both handles are pushed down !

That is strange, both sides are completely seperate electrically. Problems I have seen in the past are that some Hobart toasters are bun toasters and only toast one side of the bread. If that was the case you could look down into the toaster and see that only one side of each slot has a heating element. The other common problem is when someone changes a 220 volt to a 110 volt toaster by running the elements in series instead of paralle. at the terminal block. I am stumped on this one. I can't think of a fix for that. I am going to look at the wiring diagram again. If your question is still up, I will get back to you.

Can I put a higher watt heat tube in my TQ-10 converyer toaster

Your toaster is rated at 1800watts which is the power rating.
Your toaster is rated at 15amps which is the current rating.
Your toaster is rated at 120v which is the voltage rating.

Electrical Load,Power Rating and Current Drawn through the Main Supply is Calculated By: Power = Amps x Volts
Manufactures work out what size of cable and protectio to incorporate by using this design principle.
If you try to increase the bulb size it will alter everything and the internal wiring was not designed to take this extra load.
So, NO...

How do you replace the elements in a Hobart 4 slot toaster? I took off the bottom but there must be something I am missing. It's awfully small in there to manuever. There has to be a trick. Please share.

No Tricks. The elements are loaded and removed from the top.
Remove the crumb dtrawers, they are handy to put the parts on so the don't roll away.Remove the temperature knob after releasing the set screw, remove the lever knob after removing the pivot screw. Remove the 3 front and 4 rear cover screws with a philips driver. note the length of the screws from the locations.
Locate the element to change, disconnect the connections at front and back on the top of the element. With a small flat bladed screw driver, open the crimp tabs on each end of the bread guides and lift up. They come out of alignment holes in the lower frame. Replace the element/s, with the correct voltage replacement. 208 and 240 elements are different numbers. Reassemble in reverse order. Be carefull not to catch the element with the bread guard wires. It's common to see a bit of smoke during burnin of new elements for a short time.

Only toast one side of the bread

The other side that isn't toasting has an open element. Usually, the good side will burn twice as hot, and may have stressed that element. You might want to replace both in that slot. make sure you check the voltage rating plate. 208 and 240 volt toasters use different elements.
I just posted the procedure to replace elements, in a similar post here.
