It could be the slide button connections or loose wires. You would have to take it apart to try and figure it out. It should be under warranty, though. I don't know if the box is required. You'll have to ask Back to Basics about that.

How to Clean Your Toaster


Most Toasters Old and New have a trap door. Some have trays to catch the bread crumbs which can burn and even catch fire if not removed on a regular basis. Just open the trap door over a trash can and brush the crumbs away. Never put oils on the bread before toasting. This could cause a fire. Always unplug the toaster when finished.Not only will this help keep bills down but it can also make sure your toaster is not the cause of an electrical fire while unattended.

Do I have to wait for the toaster to warm up or put the bread in then switch on


Letting the toaster heat up first before putting in the bread is really just a waste of electricity and is unlikely to improve the efficiency of the machine or the quality of the end product in any way.

Just stick the bread in and then turn the toaster on and it should work fine. Within a short time you will learn just how long you have to leave them in so that they are toasted properly according to your own personal tastes.

Good luck.

I HAVE A RADIANT TOASTER THAT WHEN IT LETS THE BREAD DOWN IT DOESNT WANT TO CLICK OFF & LET THE TOAST UP & KEEPS LETTING IT DOWN ABOUT HALF WAY UPHVAUGHN30


Try cleaning the bread crumbs out of the thermostatic release mechanism. If necessary, lubricate the slides with a light, high temperature grease, but apply it very sparingly.

What is back to basic toaster?


Toaster of the first order wherein there is only the heating coils arranged on either sides and the bread is loaded on the slits to be pressed down to hold on.
When the set temperature is reached then the bimetal switch releases the lock and releases the bread up.
This is the basic model with no electronics inside.

Can you toast bread in it?


You turn on the grill part, set the temperature dial to high wait a few minutes then place the bread on the grill tray provided.

You will need to position the grill tray near the top of the oven because that is where the elements are.

The grill gets hot so you will need to use tongs or gloves to gain access to the bread

Keep a careful eye on the bread because unlike a Toaster it will not eject the bread when it is done and it will catch fire.

Quicker and cheaper to buy a purpose built toaster and use the other one for doing casseroles etc

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.
