The holder is a bimetallic strip that heats up and opens when it reaches a preset temperature based on the darkness setting. It should latch onto the toast loading mechanism when cold and then snap open when it reaches a certain temperature. The darkness setting knob adjusts the point at which it opens. Probably either the release mechanism is broken or bent or the setting knob is broken. You can disassemble it when unplugged by removing the screws on the bottom and prying off the toast loading knobs by placing a ruler wrapped in cloth against the housing and prying the knobs off with a large screwdriver carefully going back and forth from side to side. If the knobs break or won't go back on use a high temperature epoxy to reassemble. You have a good side to compare the bad side to. Look for differences from one side to the other as the toast loader lever goes down and as the darkness knob is rotated. You may just have something blocking the mechanism. After working on it, plug it in outside to a ground-fault protected outlet on a fireproof surface before attempting to use it.

If it is a removable cord, you will get one in a good electrical shop, or online by describing the connector.

If hard wired, you can buy a plug with wire attached at home depot and fix it yourself by removing the place where the wire goes in.

The reset can trip if there is a short circuit or the unit is over-heating. Either condition is dangerous. Unless you can locate the problem, for safety reasons suggest replace the entire unit with a new one.

Linkco perhaps. That may be a general supplier.

Kudos to the person(s) that identified the safety switch on the housing. Mine would not turn on because the switch would not depress, perhaps the plastic insertion piece on the frame was a little off. I tried wedging aluminum foil and plastic etc, but if you don't depress the black button in the middle of that white shroud on the switch exactly right, it won't work.
My solution was to permanently attach a 1/2 inch deck screw thru the housing so that the screw tip keeps the switch depressed always.
Turn the unit on its left side, use a very small bit to make a pilot for your screw. Very carefully and slowly screw down until the tip activates the switch. I don't believe there is a circuit board or anything in the vicinity, and I left mine plugged in so I would know when I hit paydirt. Caveat emptor and good luck!
