Vintage Refurbished Sunbeam 20-AG Toaster Auto Down and Up 1078

Sorry, this item has sold.

This model was made in the 1960's and 70's with a different profile using a control on the side (front) for easier toast control. Same Sunbeam quality, same patented toast control system from the 1940's. Heavy duty construction and heaters.
Please note: These units work on radiant heat from the bread, not the heaters which means that if the thermostat window cannot see the bread, it will not work properly. Short pieces, bagels, dark bread etc. will all require adjusting the controller.
Large crumb tray with easy pull down to empty.

All new wiring, all rebuilt thermostat and control. Adjusted to factory specs and works so beautifully. Just put a piece of bread in and the toaster does the rest! See picture, light, medium, dark.

Very fast, 1375 watts and the unique thermostat looks at the bread temperature. No "POP", it comes up nice and easy toasted to perfection, light to dark you choose.

Cleaned out and adjusted its ready to look great and make toast!!! Use it every day!!! I do!!! New 3 ft cord.

Frequently Asked Questions

All items come with complete use and care instructions.
All items come with cords.
All cords are either new or old style that have been tested and refurbished.

What are materials

Waffle grids are cast aluminum.
Toasters are metal
Coffee pots vary and I always tell you the materials.

How will I keep it working and will it work?

Everything I sell is refurbished and in like new working order.
If something goes wrong, I will fix it so its like a lifetime (mine LOL) warranty.

Is it safe?

It will be as safe or safer than the original manufacturer when it was made. Many times it is safer since I remove and replace asbestos wiring and unsafe cords. Note: There are some items I no longer refurbish because they cannot be made safe. I check every item for stray voltage and many times it is too high so that unit is scrapped.

What does Restored and Rebuilt Mean?

It means its been re-wired with modern high heat resistant wire, thermostats re-set, gunk, grease, stains have been removed. Restored to original factory specifications. Cords and wiring safe. All components checked for safety. Everything back to very good to mint condition nothing less.
