Tip & How-To about Waring Wto150 4-slice Toaster Oven With Built-in 2-slice Toaster

Lever for toaster will not stay down

After taking the toaster oven apart to check why no voltage was applied to the circuit board for the electromagnet coil that holds the rack during toasting operation, I find this unit uses resistive voltage from the outside right heater assembly. The connection at the rear is very fragile and will fail when operated. The repair I used is an eye type electrical connector, crimp type, with a copper wire inserted before crimping the heater wire into the terminal. Use a small ***** with nut to attach back to the connection.(#4x1/2x32) I also used silver bearing solder to create a better connection to the ***** and board connector. 7 cents for parts, 15 minutes to actually repair once the condition was found. Not bad on a $100 toaster. Time will tell on the sustainability of the repair, but has run multiple cycles so far.

I have a H. Beach Type "T", Model # 22779 toaster that will not lock down for toasting.

I have the same problem. I have troubleshot it down to a transistor or IC on the circuit board with the buttons and rotary control.

The way the toaster works is the board sends a voltage to the electromagnet that holds the "works" down until the desired time or temperature has been reached. The transistor is in series with the magnet and I assume has opened, or, the integrated circuit that sends a switching voltage to the transistor is bad.

As soon as I locate my soldering iron I'll pull the transistor to test it.

If you're looking for a minor mechanical fix, this won't be it! I'm only trying to fix it because I'm bored, I doubt it will be cost-effective if I have to buy any parts.

For some reason, the mechanism to hold down the toast is not working and it keep popping up as if it is stuck on the ''cancel'' function.

When this happens it is usually due to the fact that the electronics inside the unit has failed, and will not activate the hold in relay.
Time for a new one. Repair may be an option, but probably not an ecconomic repair.

toaster button does not latch.

The buttons latch is actually an electromagnet that is engaged and disengaged by a small timer located on the toasters circuit board. The most likely reason why the button will not stay latched is a bad connection to the magnet. Unplug the toaster and open the right side panel by removing the machine screw located on the underside of the toaster. You will notice a pretty simple circuit board with 2 (usually red) wires leading to the magnet. If you have trouble locating the magnet, push the "toast" button and watch out for the component it butts up too. Because the wires attached to the magnet are soldered firmly to the circuit board, the poor connection is usually at the magnet. Gently push the wires towards the magnet to ensure a good connection. To test, plug the toaster in, being sure to remove any tools or loose components from the toaster, and push in the button so see if it latches. If it does latch, open the door to disengage and unplug the toaster before reassembling. If it does not latch, you may need to replace the magnet.

6331 will not stay down

I have the 4-slice oster, but I bet the control mechanism is the same. When you take it apart you will see a small steel bar held by two plastic fingers. When you push the lever down the steel bar moves down and contacts a small square electromagnet. The electromagnet holds the lever down during toasting and releases the lever when done. On mine there was a compressed layer of bread crumbs covering the electromagnet. Cleaned it off and now it works again.

To take the toaster apart, pull the down lever straight out and then unfasten the screws on the bottom base (5 on mine) and pull the top off carefully. There are wires connecting the control face to the base, but they have enough slack to let you separate the top/bottom and access the mechanism.
