Check to insure the surge protector has not popped out. Reset and try again. Make sure its plugged in or it will not stay down.

It sounds like the heating sensor is longer functioning and the toaster is probably kaput, unless you can find an independent repairman who works on small appliances. In my own experience even a pricey toaster last about 3-5 years. I had the same problem with the same brand, just a different style

for Cuisinart cpt160: If the latch will not stay down it is because the electromagnet at the base of the toaster, which is supposed to activate when you push the handle down, is burnt out. I pulled my toaster apart and did a test of that mechanism and found that the solenoid was fried (open circuit). There are no replacement parts.

We opened up our toaster and scraped some baked-on crumbs off the top of the electromagnet that controls the carriage catch. When we closed it back up, it worked again.

Do any of the lights come on ?

If not then have you checked the plug top fuse

If the lights come on and then when you press the lever down it does not latch a solenoid has gone open circuit

Good toasters can be fixed

Cheap ones go in the trash bin
