If the break is near the plug, cut it and put a new plug on (three prong if the original is, two otherwise). If the break is too close to the cabinet, you'll need to replace the whole wire with something of suitable size (remember, this is probably a 1000-1500 watt appliance!). Opening the cabinet shouldn't be too difficult and if you replace one wire at a time, you can't get lost. You may need to cut the wire short of a junction of several wires (better than cutting all of them and wiring them in to a new junction with a wire connector). I would tend to solder the wires you've just connected, although many would suggest those screw on wire connectors. A lot has to do with how much room you have in the cabinet. If you aren't at all mechanically inclined, get a friend to do it. Or buy a new unit (a last resort in THIS household and not used until the unit is thoroughly unusable!).

Our Dualit toaster doesn't work. The red light doesn't work. I have changed the fuse in the socket with a working one. The timer turns normally. Yet none of the heating units heats...


You need to replace the timer-contactor. This part is acting both as timer and electrical contactor. It consist from electrical contact moved with springs on and off. Due to electrical load and extreme heat these contact have been tear out thus they can not contact properly and in your case they don't contact at all.
So from the web page of dualit or ebay you can order A new timer contactor and replace it.

My power cord has exposed wires. Where can I purchase a replacement? Thank you


The easiest way is simply go to a hardware store or even a home building/renovation center or a appliance repair shop. You can buy a replacement cord for just a few dollars compared to about $45 for one from the manufacturer. If you don;t mind you can just get some black electricians tape and wrap a piece separately around each wire, then a piece around all of that. Doesn't look as nice but for a few cents of tape which is the easiest to get/find it should works as well.

It won't heat up. The coils don't light and the light of the switch won't either.


Since the power light in the switch doesn't come on, It sounds like either the outlet where you have this plugged in isn't working, or the cord or an internal connection is bad.

The outlet is easy enough to check if you haven't done that yet; just plug in something else.

If the toaster is dead, if you're really ambitious you can look inside for any obvious broken wires where the power cord connects. I shouldn't need to say this but I will anyway to cover myself: unplug the toaster before trying anything.

You might just want to give up and replace the toaster now. Sometimes these small appliances are put together with tamper-resistant screws to keep people from opening them, both to prevent liability lawsuits and because they were never intended to be serviced. New toasters are cheap, and sometimes it just isn't worth wasting any time when one breaks.

However it works out, good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

I am looking for a replacement cord


Buy or get an extension cord of at least equal thickness. Cut the receptacle end off. Attach (twist the wires together and solder) the extension cord to the old wires.

The centre element in my 4 slice model has gone. Can this be replaced?


Don't know if you can get the heating element as separate part. But, this can probably be repaired. It's likely either a burned connection/connector or the heating element is broken.

Bad connectors can be replaced, the heating element can be just twisted back together where it is broken.

The toaster does not heat and it's only 6 mos. old.


1. check outlet where you plug in your toaster with lamp or vacuum.
jiggle plug of lamp or vacuum while plugged in to check for bad outlet.

if lamp or vacuum do not work, check breaker panel/fuse box for tripped breaker/blown fuse.
if breaker/fuse okay, replace outlet.
if lamp or vacuum work okay, go to next step

2. plug toaster back into outlet, jiggle plug, then jiggle cord at plug, then jiggle cord at toaster.
this checks for intermittent power cord.

if cord okay, check that the toaster lever or toast basket are not blocked from going completely down.
might be a bit of bread, muffin, bagel that blocks the basket.

if all okay, you need other solutions.....
