Lever does not stay down. Does not toast


Hi

This is a common problem after heavy usage. You need to open the toaster and adjust the lock which holds the lever in place. Which is connected with the Thermostat, as the thermostat trips it will pop the lever and the Mechanism connected out.

My toast lever wont stay down-I've loosened the cover and cleaned as best I can. How can I take the lever off so that I can fully remove the cover? It is a Cuisinart two slice black toaster.


On most appliances the knob on the lever pulls off and the cover is then lifted off the lever. Check that the bi-metal strip that latches the toast ejector has not been bent or damaged. Once you have the cover you will be able ot see the whole mechanism.

Black & Decker Toaster, model 3550: Pressing the handle down to lower the bread and start the toasting doesn't lock in place anymore. The toaster will toast, but you have to hold the handle down so...


The fact that pressing down the lever fails, means the toaster contact will not function and can not be repaired. Since a two slice toaster is only $15 at Target, why bother fixing a toaster?

Toaster won't stay in down position in order to toast - Cuisinart CPT-160 - although it will toast if I hold the lever down as it toasts


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.

Lever on toaster will not stay down


For what it might cost to fix it buy a better brand of toaster for about 10% of the cost of this horrible brand.
You'll notice their new ones are "smart" toasters with NO LEVER. You push a button and the electronics takes care of the rest (and blow up quickly.)
$15 to $25 at Walmart.. instead of $100 to $200.

Toast wont stay down in toaster it wont lock in place


I'm at the same crossroad. Thry holding down the lever for more than 4-secs. The light will blink once, then it is as though the circuit is over-ridden and a toasting cycle will begin. This might help to eliminate wether you have a mechanical or electrical issue. Mine appears to be electrical. I'm now investigating if it is the timing or relay?

Lever on taoster will not stay down


I would just buy a new toaster...they are not that expensive. Check the intruction book first because maybe it's under warranty. Or if you bought it very recently, just take it back to the store. Most places will take it back even without a reciept if you tell them you just bought it and it's already broken.

Toaster lever wont stay down


Open the toaster up and look inside by the levers, there should be a little piece that will keep the lever down, if this is missing, then you may need to replace the toaster, if not, then the little piece may be stuck, you can use the following to try and loosen it up,
1. WD-40
