Default Kenwood TT880 Toaster

I have had this toaster for many years and it has given good service but recently it has started doing stupid things like putting both LEDs on for reheat and defrost. I can sometimes get it to behave properly but when its having a mood, there is little I can do.

Inside there is a PCB that has 2 DIL chips and 3 transistors a couple of electrolytics and a couple of green polyester caps, 3 push switches and 2 LEDs.


Has anyone had experience of fixing this toaster?

Alf

Hi Alf,
I know nothing about this toaster, being a non-electronic Dualit bloke, but there's plenty of information and a complete PCB for less than a tenner on here:

Electrolytics are always suspect!

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the tip.

As you say electrolytics are always suspect especially when they have been in there for 20 years.
I had a similar experience years ago with a Grundig sky box that lost many channels. I found a company selling a kit of replacement electrolytics that were 105 degree rated and a bit higher voltage than the originals that in many cases had bulging ends!

I'll try replacing the electrolytics as a cheap solution as I've probably already got them in stock! Failing that a new PCB isnt too expensive.

Cheers,
Alf

At that price, unless you've got a couple of electrolytics to try anyway first, it's a bit of a no-brainer!

Are the DIL chips anything identifiable? Any other "unusual" bits on there?

Edit: Crossed in post!
