Russell Hobbs 9209 Classic toaster

I have cleaned electromagnetic plates, (if that's what they are?) But still no joy. Several elements heat up but lever will not stay down. Can you help please?

I had the same problem which I managed to solve. The electro magnet that holds the toast lever down takes its power from a poor joint.
Remove the bottom of the toaster. You will see 2 wires encased in a heat proof sleeving going from the small circuit board. One of these wires dissapears up inside the heating element board about mid way along the board. You will now have to remove the metal covering by twisting 6 tabs. This is best done by taking off the black knobs you use to push the toast down - if you can - I couldnt, so I had to use long nosed pliers to bend the tabs and then with difficulty, remove the metal cover. YOu should now see the terminal that the wire is connected to. It is this connection that fails either between the wire and coonnector or connector and heatin element on the reverse side. I put a small bolt through the hole and used a nut to tighten the pressed fitting. I didnt use solder because I thought that it would just melt!
Anyway, my toaster worked after that. Russell Hobbs failed to give me any advice at all.
I hope that has helped.

    Couldn't get the bottom moulding and wiring to separate and the elements all seem to be built into one block that is part of the steel cover. BUT when I put the thing back together all elements worked! (for now, at least). Thanks, Neville

Require replacement wire which triggers the catch when the operating handle is pushed down. Where can I buy it?.

Russell Hobbs products are firmly placed at the budget end of the market and many of their products have little or no spares availability as they're often not designed to be repaired.

However, they do supply spares for some models if you're unable to fabricate the part yourself, see web address below:-

Possibly a GFI on an outlet of the same circuit as the toaster needs to be reset?

We had the same problem and so came here. When I read "replaced the fuse in the plug" my husband asked about the outlet GFI switches (he replaced the outlets last year, so he remembered they had GFI switches). One GFI on the toaster's circuit had "blown" and so needed to be reset. Before relegating the toaster to the recycling bin, check the it by plugging it into an outlet you know is working.

Broken metal lever arm for 3/4 slice switch

Further to my post of an hour or so ago, I realised that 20 gauge is close to 0.8mm which is a standard size for Stainless Steel MIG welding wire.(Some MIG machines use 0.9 ) As I have some 0.8 I have now mended my toater in that respect and it works OK. It was easy to shape the wire which is not critical. It may not be quite so springy but its hard to tell the difference. I suspect 0.9mm MIG wire would be even better.
Unfortunately I have another problem. Hey ho.
