After using the toaster at lunch time, the coils failed to light for dinner. The timer was still working, but, eventually, that failed too. I called a service number, and the woman I talked to said it was an electrical problem, and that we should ship it. But I thought I should do this first.
Hey, I once had the same problem, but then we discovered that one of the electrical cables had split, or it could just be the age of the Toaster. Try to take it apart and look for were the main cable spits up. Then go from there. If it is not visable, then the problem may be in the main cord. If none of these suggestions work, I suggest that you take it to your local electrical store.

The security light is telling you that something is failing or has already failed in the antitheft system. Eventually this will keep your vehicle from running or starting. This link explains how the system works and ways to beat it
Unfortunately this is the sadddest part of our enviourment problem but the best part for the economic boom. Unless the unit is discarded the companies cannot surrvive.Hence most of the models are scrapped for no reason to make way so that the product sale continues.
If by cleaning the relay the fault can be rectified , try to do it with a good contact point/switch cleaner.
If the relay coils are damaged, the use an external relay if a similar type is not available.
the last option is to source one from a damaged set, sets discarded for coil failure etc..Try to salvage this part from old service shops,junk yards or second hand dealers.
Hope you find my tip helpful.
tell her to not use the radio at lunch ..she is draining the battery...replace battery..recommend gel type with deep cycle rating highest you will afford and if she must ..run engine at lunch time to charge system
I had the same problem, and replaced the thermal fuse, (that suspiciously went out shortly after the warranty expired). Since then, it's been going strong for the last couple months. The fuse itself is $2-$5 but will require time, tools and patience. Here are some links:
With mine, the toaster function stopped working. The light lit, but the relay did not click. This happened about a year ago, but then it started working again. Now that my waranty expired, it seems permanent.
The relay requires 12V, but I only measure 5V (no audible click). When I pulled the relay, the drive went up to 12V, so the coil is loading down the source. Not sure whether the problem is the coil or the source. It would be nice to find a schematic. When I put the relay across a car battery, I heard the click indicating that the relay is working.
