You need to check the energy cord and the thermostat of the toaster. Toasters will not likely work due to the fact that the electrical power cord might have been loosened its connection to the toaster or it is not emitting the appropriate volume of heat. You can also seek help from a professional electrical technician.

The cord may be frayed or maybe the plug in itself doesn't work.

Hi lullaby! I just left you a little "ditty" (even though that normally refers to a dance, I still like the way it reads..) under me.. but I did see you and was/am happy! Yeaa! Your suggestions is much more practical than mine.. by the way, that is a really good picture! did you have that done professionally? Just asking because, my two huge interests have always been animals first and foremost, but photography is a huge passion of mine, and that is a well done picture. I'm not a professional, but, what it shows is a nice mood, yet, subtle. Just to let you know, I like the composure of it! :)

No, it wasn't done professionally.
I like taking photographs as well. :)

I'm glad you have an interest on the creative side. Your chosen name shows that already. :) I also like being on both sides of the lenses. Don and I play around with taking pictures. Our house is rather limited, but we do have a nice view. My sister started her own photograhy studio some time ago. She is very, very good. It's called "Style Photography." She even got a picture in "The Cover of the Rolling Stone! " a song way before your time, I'm afraid, but, she did get a picture of Mick Jagger published in Rolling Stone! True! In all sincerity, If I could afford a place and have a dark room, like she, I would do it as a hobby and maybe someone would buy my pictures. Ansel Adams for black and white! Hu? :)

I just thought of something! I got up to do the dishes, I know, it seems I'm always doing the dishes and Don and I must be slobs, (we aren't) but, have you ever heard or seen an incredible, before his time, outrageously fantastic artist named: M.C. Escher? Oh my, oh my!! Talk about an eye org****!!!!! this guy was and still is incredible! Try and look him up if you aren't familar with him ! Out incredibly rageous! You, I think would really appreciate his work! Check out his history too! He's one of Don's fav's and mine too! We have his work hung through out our house! I think you'll like it! :)

Maybe you could sell in like something like a farmer's market with your work.
We have lots of those around here with many different sales. :)

Are you using a GFCI plug? Try resetting that.

Try pressing the little square red & black safety breaker buttons on the wall outlet plate the toaster is plugged into. (aka the GFCI buttons, as gatorblu says.) My toaster often trips them, shutting off power to the toaster. (Toaster lever will not stay down to toast bread & appears broken.)

I could barely find where to suggest anything.. there is a lot of empty space above! BIG HUGE IMPORTANT FACT: DO NOT Leave Your Kitchen when doing this procedure! DO NOT Talk on your PHONE! DO NOT Do Anything but make TOAST! When attempting this at home or anywhere else. All eyes on bread at all Times! I do the oven trick! I have a meek and weak toaster which I don't use anymore. I know and hear your frustration. Take your rack in the oven and put it on the top closest to the top coils. Turn your oven on BROIL! Turn the temp. to 500 so it will BROIL! Watch it! When it starts to "turn to toast," it'll toast quickly! Grab an oven mitt, pull the rack out, flip the toast, the other side toasts even faster! Have the butter already room temp. Pull out, TURN OFF THE OVEN and temp. to OFF! Butter both. Jam on one, butter only on the other, grab a multi vitamin and some juice of your choice, and your good to go. This weekend, go to Target, and invest $ 27.95 on a new toaster! You've inspired me! That's what I'm going to do! Have a great weekend with happy toast! :)

Toasters sell for 10-15$ at dollar general! Old toasters are the cause of 13% of all house fires! Buy a new one,save your house from burning down

Thumbs up. Agree, a new toaster may be in order. But not sure about the Dollar General ones - every time I buy one of theirs, I make lousy toast - under toasted or burned. And then it breaks. Interestingly, the expensive ones, eg Black & Decker, are often not much better. Guess I need to go to toast school or something, ha ha.

There is your way to getting rich.. Build a better toaster! Hope to see you on the late night infomercials!!
