Fixing toaster question (UK mustachians especially please)
« on: September 05, 2017, 02:44:53 AM »
Hi hi,

I've got a 4 slice toaster and two of the heating elements have gone.

Here it is https://www.amazon.co.uk/Morphy-Richards-242006-Accents-Toaster/dp/B00MAFPL3E/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_201_t_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DKF4R7CGT0T460FWE4BN

I'm happy to replace the elements with working parts, but I can't find any for that specific model.

Oh great internet, can you help me in my time of need with somewhere online I might be able to get some?

Thanks

thanks! That's a Sunday task if ever there was one.

Have you tried phoning Morphy Richards themselves - they appear to have a UK Spare Parts phoneline?

I'm not in or from the UK, but I fixed a blown heat element in our toaster. Over time the thin wires can crack. It is a simple matter to stretch the curled wire slightly and twist the broken ends together.

It's worked for several years since then...
