Hi there

The following might be the cause;

Thermal Resistor;The first potential area of trouble could be that the toaster has a defective thermal resistor. thermal resistors control the heater in the unit. If the thermal resistor is defective, it will not turn off the heating components in the toaster, which will cause the toaster to continually heat up. As it keeps heating, it keeps drawing power, which will trip the breaker.

Remove the toaster connections to it and test its conductivity with an Ohmeter. If there is no reading, the resistor is defective and needs replacement.

Faulty Circuit Breakers;

If the toaster is tripping the circuit breaker, it's possible that the circuit breaker itself is malfunctioning. Circuit breakers trip as a safety precaution to prevent an electrical circuit from overloading or shorting. If an electrical circuit was to overload or short, it could lead to a physical damage even electrical fire. If a circuit breaker is not working, it can repeatedly trip because it is not able to handle normal electrical draw. Circuit breaker replacement is not difficult and household circuit breakers can be found in local hardware stores. However, due to the electrical danger involved, contact an electrician to fix it.

Loose Electrical Connections

There could be a loose connection in the outlet. A loose connection in the outlet could consist of wiring that is not functioning and is unable to properly manage current. The current needed by the toaster is being mishandled by the loosely connected outlet and drawing more power from the electrical system, tripping the circuit breaker. Once again, an outlet can be replaced with hardware store parts but an electrician is best suitable to fix it, due to the dangers of electricity.

1978 ge toaster

Their website claims that the ProHeat elements fit toasters made in the last 50 years...

I would say take the thing to a good electrician, and she can inspect one of the ones that still works, compare it to the one that burnt out, and come up with some sort of fix...

Dualit toaster short circuit

Is not an open curcuit but a short curcuit. Means that one of the wire conections you have made is either contact with toasters body or one contact is touching with other contact. So you need to have all contacts of the toaster from the bottom side to see if their are clear to each other or from the toasters body

I have a customer with a toaster of 25 years old and we have replace only one heating element up to now. For recent models we replace electrical parts in about 2 to 3 years, some times every year as you describe.

Out Dualit toaster keeps blowing the fuse. It's

Probably one wire Loosen up or a wire from one heating element have cut off and is contacting the metal body of the toaster. You need a good visual insect of your toaster, you may use a flush light to see inside the electriacl elents and also open the bottom base to insect the wire conections to the heating element.
I beleive one or more heating elements is the problem and you need to replace them.
Good Luck

Dualit combi heating element 12/95

All the element's are available on e-bay u.k. for about 6.00 gbp. Alternativley you may be able to repair it. Put the toaster on it's side with the bottom facing towards you and the knobs on the top. Remove the crumb tray and then remove the bottom (usually the screws are located in the feet). There may be one more visible screw remove that too, then you will see a rail at the bottom that secures the element's in place. Loosen off the nuts at each end and slide the rail down, undo the two bolt's feeding the power to the element's and slide the element out.Go over it with a continuity meter and see where it's broken then move the element wire about to bridge the circuit.Test it again and reassemble. I repaired mine this way.Or, simply replace the element using the instructions above.Easy!
