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!!

How do i change nozzel on oil burner


Turn power off and isolate the fuel line/lines. Disconnect flare fitting on fuel line to the burner assembly. Open burner assembly...either the primary controller or ignition transformer should hinge open with a few screws on the other side. Should be a locking nut on the fuel line to the burner and electrodes...loosen and pull burner/nozzle/electrodes. I Don't recommend removing the electrodes if you don't know how to space them correctly, so unless you have a nozzle removal socket/ratchet, then use a deep well socket & back it up with a large pair of channel locks. Thread pattern is normal...LLRT. When replacing nozzle, Make sure you have the same gallon rated, spray pattern (hollow, semi, solid etc) , & degree (angle).

I need a replacement cord for chefs mark 12 in 1 toaster oven combo tb1080


I could not locate the exact replacement power cord for your toaster oven. If the power cord is a plug -in type, you can look on line, do a search " small appliance power cords", but I'm not sure if you will be able to match up the correct cord. I think your best bet is to go to a local. old fashioned. hardware store or to a small appliance repair center. Take the original power cord with you to match it up.
