Toaster does not brown toast

Our delonghi 4 slice does not get the toast dark enough. I have to put them down twice to get them dark enough. I worked with appliance repair as a teenager and wonder if there is an adjustment on the bimetal strip so I can set the time the toast are down. If so are there any secrets to disasembly I should know about? Thanks

    We have the same problem. We have turned the heat knob all the way. There must be a solution.

I am trying to repair a Sunbeam Model T-35 radiant control toaster. Everything is working but I can't seem to get the timer control (for setting light and dark) set correctly. Is there some...


I have/had a similar problem. Here's how I fixed it.
UNPLUG THE TOASTER
1. Clean the crumbs out throughly. I removed the bottom of the toaster (6 screws) to make sure all the debris was removed. Use a soft brush. Replace bottom and tighten screws. 2. Gently brush the sensor area in the 'one slice' slot with a soft brush. 3. Remove 'darker-lighter' knob. I gently pried mine off with a small screwdriver. 4. Plug toaster in. 5. Put a slice of your usual bread in the 'one slice' slot. 6. Watch it toast. 7. When 'done' to your liking slowly rotate the control counter clockwise using a small screwdriver until the toaster stops toasting. 8. Replace knob with the pointer at the mid point (up and down) to allow for minor adjustments.

4 slice toaster when pressed down to start toaster they won't stay down.(either side) Yes I have it plugged in


Try cleaning the bread crumbs out of it. If you get enough piled up under the latch mechanism, you can't push it down far enough to engage it.

You may be able to do an adequate job by opening the bottom cover - most toasters are made so it's easily removed for this very purpose. If not, you'll need to pull off the knobs and remove screws so you can take off the top cover. Be careful not to touch the heater wires with any tools - after they've been used a while they become rather brittle and break easily, and even a scratch can cause them to erode and fail. I assume you know to unplug the toaster before working on it.

I just bought this kenmore 2 slice toaster and the toast lever won't stay down!?


Make sure it is set dark enough. Some toasters will not stay down if they are set too light.

The lever doesn't stay down anymore, what should I do?


It sounds like the latch is broken. Unless you are very comfortable opening appliances and know very well what you are doing, it is best to have the toaster replaced. Check if it's still under warranty, or buy a new one.
Any workarounds to block the lever in its down position are very dangerous and a potential fire hazard. You may be able to wiggle the lever into place so it catches whatever is left of the latch, but make sure it will pop up easily when the toast is ready.
I hope this helps.

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

Toast wont stay down in toaster it wont lock in place


I'm at the same crossroad. Thry holding down the lever for more than 4-secs. The light will blink once, then it is as though the circuit is over-ridden and a toasting cycle will begin. This might help to eliminate wether you have a mechanical or electrical issue. Mine appears to be electrical. I'm now investigating if it is the timing or relay?

Only toasts part of bread


The solution I got from the FixYa team was: "Get a new toaster." Which is how I ended up with 4 new toasters that don't work. I'm glad I didn't PAY for THAT answer.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.
