Lever will not stay down on Krups 155 ToastControl Compact

We don't keep the toaster on the counter since we don't use it much, but after bringing it out and attempting to use it the other day, we discovered that the lever will not "catch" and stay down at the bottom.... My husband and I like to fix things rather than replace them, but this is the second Krups item we've had that has suddenly stopped working, the other being an electric can opener that Krups even replaced, since it was within 1 year, but even the replacement could no longer open cans after awhile....

No promises, but I had a similar problem with a Breville Clasic. Toasters these days use a solenoid (electromagnet) to hold down the toast carriage. This solenoid is usually soldered to the circuit board, and is reasonably big, i.e. 1/3 a cigarette pack.. on mine, because of repeated impact when the carriage is pushed down, one solder connection developed a haiirline fracture. This meant that most of the time it wouldn't stay down. I resoldered the connections and all ok.

My Krups Sensotoast Deluxe just stopped working. Can you help me? I really don't want to throw it out because it's relatively new and I expected a product with this name to last a lot longer.


The printed circuit board is likely burned out. It's pretty sad really. This is a poorly designed toaster. Krups owes us new toasters in my opinion. Looks like a fire hazard too. If you are curious, you can remove the 4 philips head screws out of the bottom of the toaster, gently pry off the push down lever and the dial, and examine the board and connections. 8_25_2012_1_16_19_pm.jpg

Bread won't toast


We ran into the same problem today with our toaster. There was never a problem before I cleaned it--not only by sliding out the crumb drawer, but by turning it upside down to dislodge every last crumb. After that, It would not stay down when pushed down.

My husband took the cover off and found that a magnet is what keeps the lever down when the toaster's on, and allows it to go back up when the toasting is done. It's an electro magnet that works only when the toaster is on. It seems that when I turned the unit upside down and rightside up again, crumbs landed on the magnet's contact plates (which are about 1/4" x 1/2") and would not allow the magnet to engage. Because the magnet wouldn't engage, the lever would not stay down, and the toaster shut off. Brush off the magnets, replace the cover and toast away!

Problem with jaipan toaster


the release mechanism contains a bimetallic strip that snaps open when a certain amount of power goes through it based on the setting. When cold, it should trap the toast loading lever mechanism. If not, it may be broken or bent. Don't work on it with power applied

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

My Krups model 288 toaster won't always latch down.


You can fix this yourself by following these instructions. Unplug your toaster before proceeding!... Clean the toaster first. Turn the toaster upside-down and shake out the crumbs. Remove and clean the bottom crumb tray. 1. Unscrew the four Phillips head screws located in the corners of the bottom base. Remove the screws completely if possible. Do this over a cloth or newspaper - that way a stuck screw won't get lost if it falls out later. 2. With the toaster right-side up, pull off the wide toast lever knob. Do not remove the round adjustment knob (it will not come off from the outside) but make a mental note of what number (1-7) is showing at the knob's adjustment mark. 3. Carefully pry up the end of the case cover with the knob on it (don't pull on the "stop" button). When the knob's plastic shaft is clear of the circuit board, gently pull off the cover. 4. On the inner part of the circuit board you will see a black plastic "cam" surrounded by two sets of electrical contacts. Rotate the cam to open the contact points if necessary. Insert a thin nail file between the points and rotate the cam to trap the file between them, then scrub back and forth several times to clean the contact points. Do this for each contact on both sides of the cam. When finished, rotate the cam clockwise so it is all the way back down to it's original position. 5. To make re-assembly easier, remove the round adjustment knob from the cover by depressing the half-round shaft flanges inside the cover with your fingernails. 6. Re-assemble the toaster by reversing steps 1 & 2. Replace the knobs, making sure that the round one is in the same position you noted earlier before you push it all the way down.
