Elements Not Illuminating - Toaster

Possible Solutions

Is the toaster heating?

Traditionally, toaster elements would always glow when you looked inside your toaster. Modern technology has changed that.

  • The elements don't need to illuminate to toast. The elements will not be brightly lit, even in a dark room.
  • The real test of whether or not your toaster is working correctly is uniform browning.
