My "new-old" Jasper Morrison Rowenta Toaster
on September 9, 2012
I have a Jasper Morrison Rowenta toaster since 2004. The first one I have had lasted 4 months! That was exactly the same sort of problem that I have read so often: a constant signing tone and then the lifting mechanism which was staying down. What a deception for a so beautiful piece of design! I was fortunate enough that the guaranty was still applying. I have sent it to the provider and a few days later I received a brand new one.
That one has lasted 8 years, until a few weeks ago. I have desperately looked where I could get a new one. Unfortunately I have seen that it wasn't any more in production and I was concluding that I had no choice to get rid of it. This was a painful conclusion because I like it so much! The design is so wonderful and I could not realise to have another piece beside my Rowenta coffee machine also by Morrison.
So I had nothing to lose trying to have it fixed. This is what I have done. This was some sort of desperate action.
My repairman opened it without any difficulties. He told me that it was a beautiful mechanism with a hint of fragility. The secret: the motor is travelling with the lift which carries the toasts up and down. The electrical wires which link the motor to the main electrical alimentation are loosening with time and break. Something very simple to repair!
So I'm hoping that my "new-old" Jasper Morrison toaster will last another 8 years.
If you are in the Montreal area, my repairman is "La Patente" on Rachel Street.
