Kitchen Aid KTT570 toaster won't work

My Kitchen Aid KTT570 toaster's lever won't catch and lower the bread. it worked for about a year, then began to not catch once in a while. The problem just got worse. Repeated tries and changing outlets used to help but that doesn't even work now. Is there a repair or a part change out that a home user could do?

    When this happens the lever is often bent, not broken, the little tag that is keeping the lever dowh is not catching anymore.
    The toaster has probably safety screws, you will need a special screwdriver to undo the screws if you want to open it.
    If you decide to do it yourself unplug power, and be careful not to damage the heating elements or any of the wiring inside.
    If you need to replace the part you can buy it here, call them by phone if you do not find the part in listings.

Tthe lever on my Braun HT 600 toaster won't stay down. 3 years old, but very moderate use. Ideas?


Be sure to unplug toaster first. While inverting your toaster, depress the toaster lever(s) and shake toaster to clear all bread crumbs. It can take up to several minutes of shaking to clear them completely, however, the key is to depress the toaster levers down at the same time. Also, remember to remove bread crumb trays and empty regularly, as the trays are too shallow and allow crumbs to build up quickly, thereby blocking the "locking mechanism" of the lever(s).

If after cleaning your toaster out thoroughly, the levers still won't remain depressed, try various outlets throughout your kitchen. Oftentimes, when one GFI (Ground Fault Indicator) trips, several outlets along the same circuit will also trip.

Also, there is a website called Manuals.com, which has a very good database of many manuals for various manufacturers and models of toasters, should all of the above efforts fail.

I did all of the above and fixed my toaster within five minutes. :- )

Good luck to you.

I have a pink two slicer kitchen aide Toaster. The button to pull down the bread to toast will not stay on. Where can I order/buy a new pink one? thanks kathie


Before tossing out the toaster, check on the inside of the toaster, you may have a wire bread closure in there that is blocking the lever.

I took my son's toaster apart when they replaced it, and found a bread closure inside it, blocking the lever. Anything small enough to fall inside could do this too. (The toaster works fine now, and I use it myself!)

Make sure you unplug the toaster first, you don't want to have a "shocking" experience.

Turn the toaster upside down and shake it a few times, over the kitchen sink, and then open and clean the "crumb" compartment.

Sorry to tell you this, but, your toaster is no longer available on the market, you might want to check a few thrift shops in your area...or you can check this link for another model that is pink and a KitchenAid.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.
