Will have to get info. It is burger King toaster. Commercial toaster. Not sure of year.im sure at least 5 yes old. It's a roundup vertical toaster. Model vct-2000
Small Appliance Technician: Michael, Small Appliance Technician replied 3 years ago
thanks for that.When you turn it on, do the heating elements seem to work ok?Also do you have this unit on a circuit breaker that can handle the power draw from this unit, its a really heavy duty toaster I wish I had lol.It requires a very good electrical connection and a heavy enough circuit to keep it from blowing the fuse. Please check that. If you still have trouble check the connection at the plug end as well ;-)I will stick with you until you have this working,please rate my service kindly thus far, it is the only way I receive credit for my time with you;-)It won't cost you anything additional to rate;-)Thank you and have a great day!Tech Michael
