Toaster not working

Likely causes:

  1. Toast crumbs in the main contacts. See The contacts are shown at 2:34 – perfect for crumbs to intrude!It may be possible to dislodge by shaking. If not, unplug, open upand clean.
  2. Element is broken. Usually caused by poking something in thetop. There are many sizes and shapes on sale on ebay, and a fair number of good youtube videos to help.
