Doesn't lock properly to toast

I have a brand new Oster 6329 out of the box and it does not lock properly to toast. Is this a malfunction or is there something I can do to properly make it toast? We have tried different electrical sockets,...but it still does not work. Thanks!

Those brands are noisy. We had one as well. Fortunately ,it did not last long when we used it. Black and decker has a good one.

The innerside elements of the toaster are not warming up. Only the outer sides of the bread slices are toasting. How to fix?

You need to take the sides off and try inspect the inner element, looking for a break in the flat wire, or a bad connection where there is an eyelet or such in the mica where the leads connect to the element. You will probably have to buy a new center element from an electrical repair outlet and replace it.

Release button doesn't work, never stops toasting unless you unplug it

Hi. this is a huge fire hazard. Please unplug it and either send it to oster for a repair or toss it in the trash. The thermostat is broken and must be replaced. J.

The lever to push down the toast will not lock in to start the toastng cycle

Inside the toaster (behind the toast, bagel, etc. Buttons) there is a magnet, this needs to be clean for the taster to lock. First, unplug the unit. Now remove the cap on the thumb lever and the four screws at the bottom, separate the toaster. Now you will see the magnet, remove any debris with a dry towel or with your finger tip. After properly re-assembled this should work.

Trying to fix my Oster 6309 and can't seem to remove . . .

The lever actually comes off another way, turn the toaster upside down and you will see a small clip holding the handle to the metal arm inside, you can pry it off with aa small screwdriver

There is a mini adjustable potentiometer facing the left side on the circuit board. Turning it counter clockwise to your taste.

Oster Toaster

My Oster Toaster stopped popping up after a couple of years as well - the lever just stays down until you unplug it or the toast catches on fire.

R3 was burned and replaced per the info on these discussions to no effect.

So I mapped out a rough schematic from the board and found some interesting things. Oster seems to be directly rectifying the line voltage (dangerous but cheap) through D1-D4 into 5V through DZ4 and 32V through DZ1.

These voltages seem to be across R3, which means it has 27V on 1K or about 0.73W on it continuously! Not only is this a waste of power, but it will always burn a 1/2W resistor. I would recommend replacing it with a 1W or larger and setting it up off the board to dissipate the heat into the air.

Then when toasting, the NPN transistor Q2 pulls to GND one side of the coil that holds the lever down. R3 is used as a series current limit for the 32V supply to the other side of the coil (so it has 32V or over 1W on it when toasting).

My problem with the toast not popping up was related to Q2 being blown. I don't remember the original number since I cut it out, but they seemed to have used an audio transistor with a Vce of 20V and Ic of 20mA. No wonder it blew with 32V and 32mA on it - bad design from the start.

I replaced Q2 with a cheap, commonly available 2N2222 - it has the same pinout and is good for 1A and 50V. It's been working great for months, but sadly still burning almost 1W continuously or over 6KWh per year.
