Top 20 DeLonghi RT400 Retro 4-Slice Toaster Questions & Answers

That's not a mulcher. It's a toaster. You need more than a manual.

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 have researched this toaster quite extensively, without any success as to actual solutions. Usually these machines have either a solenoid activated lever that holds the toast down, although magnetic systems are not uncommon. These may be avtivated by a thermostat, an optical "brownness" meter or a timer. Usually the cost of replacing this would be as much as a new toaster due to labour costs, however it may possibly be fixable - could you add a photo of the internal workings - this might help. Unfortunately many other purchasers appear to have similar problems and claim to have had little success with either dealer or manufacturer. The number of toasters of this model offered for sale second-hand as new at ridiculously low prices makes me suspect that there is a fundamental problem with the model. Use any warranty you have, but unless you wish to write a lot of letters/mails then i suspect a new toaster might be your best bet. Availability of spares for this toaster is another issue - I have been unable to find anyone who claims to supply these, although individual components are almost certainly from different manufacturers and could be sourced. If you can arrange a photo of the toaster when open (reasonably close up and general view) then I may be able to help more. Apologies for no actual "Solution" yet.

Most self stopping kettles have a bi-metal piece, generally in the handle or top part, which, when boiling, gets one side of the metal to expand more than the other, causing it to bend and mechanically turn off the switch. There are many causes that it can stop working- iron fatigue, corrosion, jammed switch etc that can make it stop working. In general, it <strong>wouldn't</strong> be financially worthwhile to repair it, however many people still use them when they stay in the room, since they still do a decent job of boiling the water quickly. Typically they have a safety, so the thermo-fuse will shut it before a fire starts- on your own risk. It's usually not so expensive to get a new one, so I'd go for using it temporarily til I get around to getting a new one!

It is probably on the base or bottom of the fryer.

See if it has thermal fuses once you open it up. unplugged of course. Check the side that does not work for continuity of that fuse. Replace it if it is open and check the location to see if it is located too close to an element. Either crimp using copper brass or steel crimps or use ceramic wire nuts to attach the new one.Also look for a broken element. Depending where the break is, sometimes you can make it functional by overlapping the broken area, and that will make decent contact, or sometimes you need to add a metal ferrule and crimp it down.
