Don’t buy this toaster…They fail and Breville won’t warranty it after 1 year….

Never again Breville..

Thank you for this tear down guide. Though it’s built pretty well and feels like a tank, It doesn’t seem very repairable. Mine stopped working a couple months ago and I’m contemplating throwing it out. Comments?

David Vileta - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

any chance you still have the electronics for the toaster. Mine stopped working. It’s not the heating element. I THINK the issue is one of the components on the circuit board failed. I’ll buy the harness with the PCB from you, if it’s still around. Thanks.

Thanks very much for posting all of this, gave me the confidence to 'go in'.

Foe anyone thinking of doing what I just did; the guts of a plastic cased model can be put into a metal cased model but there are a few differences but everything you need is there.
