Why are My Toaster Elements Not Illuminated?

Traditionally, toaster elements would always glow when you looked inside your toaster.

Modern technology has changed that.

  • It is not necessary for the elements to illuminate in order to toast. The elements will not be brightly lit, even in a dark room.
  • The true test of whether or not your toaster is working properly is uniform browning.

If your toast shade is not uniform on both sides, or your toaster does not toast at all, please Contact Us.
