The toaster consumes a lot of current (or electricity) since it is a heating equipment. All electrical heating equipments consume lot of current. So naturally, there is a deficiency in the limited supply of current to the other devices (like light, fans, refrigerator etc) So the light goes dim.

I'm not sure what you mean by turning a dimmer switch "up".-- When the dimming action of the device is turned 'up', the bulbbecomes more dim, that is, less bright.-- The dimmer may have an arrow printed on its control, labeled 'brighter'.In that case, when you turn the control in the direction of the arrow,the light becomes brighter, i.e. less dim.

no, because you can't turned it back where it was (white bread!) ;)

The toaster will not explode, but it could electrocute you or cause a fire.Do not ever stick any metal object into a toaster when it is plugged in, even if it is not turned on. If you have a piece of bread stuck in the toaster, unplug the toaster before trying to remove the bread.

Nothing YET- but when the toaster is turned on, electrical energy is changed to heat (and a little light)

Charles Strite was with his wife one day shopping and the saw a toaster. It wasn't a toaster like you and I are used to, it was a toaster where you had to flip the bread by hand. His wife said " Wouldn't it be easier to have the bread turned automatically?" This lead Charles to make the Automatic toaster. Charles made an improvement to the automatic toaster by creating the first ever electric pop-up toaster.

Yes it is still on and using as much power as if it was on full

There is a fuse. There is also an instrument light dimmer. Make sure it is not turned all the way off before going any farther.There is a fuse. There is also an instrument light dimmer. Make sure it is not turned all the way off before going any farther.

Could be bad bulbs (double filamented) or bad dimmer switch

Be sure the dash illumination dimmer switch is not turned off.

Probably because the dimmer switch is turned off. Turn the dimmer switch up and see if the dashlights and radio illumination lamps come on.

check your interer dimmer switch is it in the on position? dimmer switch is not turned on ... the lights stay on while the car is in use as well as when the car is turned off. they stay on exactally as long as the radio does if the car is turned off and you sit inside

First check the dash light dimmer control switch to be sure it is not turned off then check the fuse.

On many cars, there is a dimmer switch which controls the instrument panel lights. If this switch is turned all the way, it may cause the overhead light to come on. The overhead light will then stay on even after doors have all been closed. Find the dimmer switch, close the doors, wait 30 seconds, and then turn the dimmer switch.

Most likely, the dash light dimmer is turned all the way down. That particular dimmer only comes into play when the headlights are turned on. Try turning it back up. did you find out what was wrong with the dashboard im having the same problem
