Question about Oster 6247 4-Slice Toaster

1 Answer

1) the timing device usually releases the toast before it is the desired degree of brown; 2) the handle that lowers the bread into the toaster may or may not stay down. 3) I'd be delighted to try to correct the problems, but I can't determine how to enter the toaster.

    I've tried dislodging crumbs as you suggested but the problem continues. Can you tell me the location of the Torx screws? Try as I might, I can't locate any part of the toaster that looks like the head of a screw. This is the only toaster that I can find that takes slices of bakery bread and I'd like to be able to fix what I assume is a common problem. Thanks for your help.

This toaster uses a small magnet under the base that holds the pop-up mechanism down when a steel plate latches on the top of the magnet.
If crumbs get in the way of this - it doesn't work, easist way to fix this is to take it out side, turn it upside down and bang on the sides till all the crumbs fall out! You can take it apart if you have a set of Torx screwdrivers, I believe these are number 10 Torx screws that are used in this machine.
Most of the time the upside banging clears the problem. If you get it cleaned and the problem still is occuring, the electronics isn the board have failed and it is cheaper to replace than to repair!

    Well, these things change quite regularly and for some reason manufactures can't leave well enough alone. I can't remember off the top of my head, but they may be hidden in the feet or legs under a rubber pad, you might have to pry a little till you find a place that is screwed down. for some reason I am thinking the sides might come off on this, but without one in front of me makes it tough. Look under any labels as well. Do you know what a torx screw looks like? They resemble an allen screw but have an inverted star shape in the head.

My toaster does not lock in for toasting


Most small appliance are not worth fixing. If the mechanism that locks the bread handler is defective, I'd just buy a new toaster.

Russell Hobbs RH2T toaster bread won't stay down w/o hold handle


Hi, most new toaster have a selenoid that hold down the handle while toasting then release when done so a spring bring the toast up. Possible problem with the selenoid, the electronic circuit that controls it or the plate that the selenoid holds. When you lower the handle you close the contacts of the AC line inside the toaster so if the handle is raised there is no power.

Black and /decker toaster model T3550. The outside elements work but the middle ones do not. so only one side of the bread is toaster.And the handle must be held down the whole time to toast


The heating element wire is really thin and there is a great posssibilty of breakage. There is also a spring switch in which the lever locks when toasting. needs replacement.

Toaster burns everything


It sounds like the heating sensor is longer functioning and the toaster is probably kaput, unless you can find an independent repairman who works on small appliances. In my own experience even a pricey toaster last about 3-5 years. I had the same problem with the same brand, just a different style

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.
