Lever on taoster will not stay down

The right side facing lever will not stay down. when i hold the lever down, there is no heat generating from the elements.  I have disassembled the unit but am not sure what i should be looking for.
The lever will only stay down for about 10 seconds then it pops back up and I have to hold down the lever with my finger to finish toasting. t-fal 8780.40

    BReville Ikon 4 slice toaster lever won't stay down. Was like this when I pulled it out of the box new. It will stay down sometimes if I repeatedly press the Cancel button while holding down the lever - eventually it sticks and the toaster works perfectly. Problem is I have to do that every time!! I think it might be held down by an electro magnet, and I'm wondering if my house's wiring is perhaps not delivering enough current?? Any thoughts anyone?

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.

932 ariens shuts engine down as clutch is engaged to throw snow


Your problem would be in a safety shutdown switch.
some Ariens blowers have a two handed safety switch whitch is located on back of blower right lower side (inside of body)
You have to remove 4 transmission pan bolts to see it.
The other location is under the metal face plate between the handle bars.
Some of them have a third handel on right side of handle bars that has to be depressed to run auger .

Auger clutch lever disengages even though drive clutch lever is squeezed


On mine (Honda HS55) it turned out to be gummy old grease on the shaft and the lever that are supposed to lock the auger lever down. The spring couldn't overpower the sticky old grease. If nudged or given enough time, it would slowly turn and lock, but not instantaneously, as it should.
10 mm wrench to remove the nut (bottom left) and bolt (under handle) holding on the metal cover.
Once cover was off I could see the locking lever, spring, and the shaft that had the gummy grease on it.
The third photo shows the locking lever as it should be engaged. I had to push it to engage it, due to the spring not being strong enough for the gummy grease on the shaft.
There are flat sides on the shaft, behind the threads for the nut that has already been removed. Use a wrench on those to turn the shaft out. Disassemble. Clean. Oil. Reassemble. Works great now.
Another possibility is that your locking lever or spring are broken.

Brake light stays on all the time


There are two brake light switches on your bike. One for the front brake and it's located in the right handlebar switch housing and a pressure switch that is usually underneath the bike somewhere for the rear brake. You can find the rear brake light switch by following the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder until you come to a switch with some wires on it. On the older bikes, you could unplug the wires to see which switch was holding the light on. If the brake light goes off when you unplug the wires, it's this pressure switch that has the light held on. If the light stays on, it is the front brake light switch. On your bike, check for looseness in the front brake lever. If the lever and pin are worn, this will cause the lever to not depress the switch in the side of the switch housing facing the front brake lever. Your front brake switch may be broken. Odds are that the front brake switch is the one causing the problem.

Good Luck

Opening side panel of acer aspire t180


You have done half the work toward the solution by removing the thumbscrews. The other half involves sliding a spring-loaded lever above the lower thumbscrew toward the bottom of the case. While the lever is slid toward the case bottom, push on the side panel in the same direction as the screws, i.e. toward the rear of the case. The side panel should slide just slightly, allowing you to then lift it off to access the inside. Note that when replacing the side panel, follow the above steps in reverse order.

When replacing the side panel, note that if the panel is not correctly replaced, the thumbscrews will not be able to be installed as the lock lever will not be set properly.

Daisy wheel will not stay on wordsmith 100



CHANGING Changing The Ribbon Cassette 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette. 3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place. 4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon. 5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing The Print Wheel 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and lift out the daisy wheel. 3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen. 4) Push the lever back into position. 5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
It appears as though you have something that is preventing the print wheel from being locked in place by the release lever. It should make a snapping or similar noise when it is locked down.

Lever on taoster will not stay down


Black & Decker T4050 OptiToast 4-Slice and it will not stay down and heat either. However you can hold it down and then it will heat. I apparently has an electromagnet that is supposed to hold it down and it's not working. Any Suggestions?
