The toast carriage is held down by an electro-magnet, not by any type of physical clasp or hook.

So the most frequent problem with elector-magnet is due to the heat some wire or springs become loose so the electro-magnet is not working properly so it does not stay down.

Another reason that electro-magnet not work properly is due to bread remaining does not leave the lector-magnet contacts to contact. You should clean between where the metal of the Electrical contact meet each other.

Left side does not drop toast down, elements work.


I had to take my toaster outside and clean out the sidees of each slot. There was debris baked on and it had the wire frame stuck. Once I cleaned, scraped and emptied out the junk, the toaster works fine.

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.

Problem with the CUISINART RBT-450BKPC costco toaster


We had exact the same problem. Our problem was within the circuit board controlling the release relay, on the left side. 3 parts was dead:
1) rectifier diode 200V 1amp
2) Electrolytic capacitor 220uF 25V
3 Zener diode 12V 1W
These components supplies 12VDC to the rest of the circuits from the mains, 127 VAC.

Breville classique toaster


Just fixed my Breville CT20. Cleaned the contacts, there were no impeding crumbs so I tested again and still wouldn't stay locked. I finally replaced the 470uf 16v capacitor on the control board just below the electromagnet and wow, works like a brand new toaster! I got lucky, saving bits and pieces of old circuits sometimes pays off.

Lever on taoster will not stay down


Black & Decker T4050 OptiToast 4-Slice and it will not stay down and heat either. However you can hold it down and then it will heat. I apparently has an electromagnet that is supposed to hold it down and it's not working. Any Suggestions?
