Krups toaster won't work.
I do not know the exact inner workings of this toaster, but I can suggest what the fault may be. Many of the toasters use a separate high power section in the eating element for toasting. This part of the element could have gone defective. There is the possibility the computer board that directs the power for the higher temperature mode for toasting has failed. The only reliable way to know is to try the computer board, element assembly, or the switches if the switches are on a separate module than the computer board.Just to add... These toaster units usually have a thermo protection fuse. These fuses have a temperature rating. It would be in series with the element. This fuse may have failed. This is a common fault in many of these types of units. This type of fuse is rated in Degrees C or F, and not in Amps. it is a thermo fuse.

My Krups Sensotoast Deluxe just stopped working.
The printed circuit board is likely burned out. It's pretty sad really. This is a poorly designed toaster. Krups owes us new toasters in my opinion. Looks like a fire hazard too. If you are curious, you can remove the 4 philips head screws out of the bottom of the toaster, gently pry off the push down lever and the dial, and examine the board and connections.

Krups Blender 577 replacement of rubber coupling
Krups Blender 577 - first try it not easy but next time it will be.
Replacing the rubber coubling is extremely difficult with this model.
After almost destroying the air in/outtake grill on the side in pursuit of a good lock of the axe, I tried so hard to use a nose plier to grab the post and unscrew the coupling counter-clockwise but it just didn't fit (it needs to be long and narrow/needle like). So I ended up cutting off rubber on the coupling and also cutting of plastic from the black plastic cover which is just under the rubber coupling. In the end I was able to cut that plastic and remove it so that I could actually take off the whole casing (you need a torx 20 with a hole in it to unsrew the 4 bits at the bottom underneath the rubber stands) with the rubber coupling still attached and detach two power cables so that I had much more space to properly grab the post and then it was very very easy to unscrew it counter-clockwise. But up until then I lost my insanity twice :-).
Now I know how to so the next time will be easier.
I just bought a rice cooker at a garage sale. It had no instruction manual
To make rice, remove the trivet if you have one as this is only for steaming food.
Wash rice to get rid of excess starch and put in pan. Then add the same amount of water as rice (2 cups water to 2 cups rice etc.) then shut lid and switch on and leave it.
Once it has switched off do not open the lid for a further 20 minutes (the machine will keep the rice warm do not worry) Stir rice and serve. Most rice cookers will keep the rice warm for a couple of hours.
If you find the rice is a bit dry then add a little bit more water, the amount of water really depends on the quality of rice used.
