Fixing a new electrical lead

I burnt the lead of my toaster, i would like to try and renew the lead but the screws in the bottom of the toaster are triangular shaped, so cant get it off. Are there any suitable screwdrivers to remove them and if so would it be straight forward to renew the lead?

Anyplace that sells tools, including discounters like Harbor Freight, have sets of 1/4" hex bits, and hex tool handles (usually with a magnetic shank to keep the bit in place). See if you can find an inexpensive set with the triangular bit of that size, and you'll be set to fix all sorts of things!

Is it really triangular and not just 'star' shaped say in which case you can use a 'phillips' screw-driver.
If really triangular then you'll have to go to a specialist electrical shop and ask to borrow a correct tool.
The replacement of the burnt lead should be fairly easily done as long as you have already some experience in doing these kind of electrical jobs!!

The innerside elements of the toaster are not warming up. Only the outer sides of the bread slices are toasting. How to fix?


You need to take the sides off and try inspect the inner element, looking for a break in the flat wire, or a bad connection where there is an eyelet or such in the mica where the leads connect to the element. You will probably have to buy a new center element from an electrical repair outlet and replace it.

How do i get the old timer out and put in the new?


First unplug the toaster. Remove the crumb tray. Turn toaster over and remove the 4 rubber feet an 2 other screws holding the bottom on. this will expose the works and the back of the timer.
Gently pry the knob off evenly on both side this will expose 2 screws holding the timer to the toaster. Remove the screws the timmer is now loose for removal. The new timer schould have included a couple of wiring diagrams to attach the new switch. please follow it carefully it is not the same as the old one. reverse steps to reasemble toaster

I have a Breville toaster and the lever will not lock when toasting. I was able to remove the screws, but I am unsure how to remove the handle on the lever to allow the case to be removed.


1. Remove bottom screws;
2. Remove side handle;
3. Only pry up the casing from the black bottom base;
4. Turn the toaster back in up-right position;
5. Facing the lever end, (may be easier with a helper), lift the casing about 2-3 inches and unplug the wire on your left side then lift it up completely but be careful because another wire on the right side will remain attached;
6. You are now facing an electronic card and behind it lays the source of your problem. A small 3/4" x 1" white plastic. An electro-magnet. Some bread dust, not crumbs but real dust. You need to clean them all. probably easy with an air compressor or even a can of compressed air duster used for computer. The worse scenario is to unscrew what hold the electronic card in place and the 2 screw that hold the electric cord in place. Then you get a very good access the the source of the problem.

Even after 19 months, I did get a new toaster from our canadian Breville's distributor but after another 24 months, this time they offered me a 40% rebate to purchase a new one. No thanks, I decided to try to fix it or buy a different brand. We succeeded, my son and I. Good luck to you.

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...


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.

Our toaster stopped working a little while ago, but it is outside the (presumably) one year warranty period. It's a 4 slice, soft touch black toaster, cost about £75, I think it is this model. It only...


remove from the electricity supply
remove crumb tray,
remove bottom 4 os 6 screws.
at the bottom of the toaster there is what liooks like a flat fish hook that engages with the handle when you push the handle down to start toasting. clean around this and try to get it to engage when you push the handle down, it wont stay down unless the electricity is connected but dont plug it in as you will probably kill your self!!
put it back together abd try it
if it does not work 4 slice toaster from Tesco £9.99

Buy and fit a new timer switch.6 screws to remove bottom cover, pull the knob off and 2 screws hidden by the knob will be revealed, these hold the timer in. Make sure you put the wires onto the new switch in the same place you took them from.
