SOURCE: Expensive toaster doesn't work
I broke mine trying to fix this, but the fix is very easy. remove the out shell and you will see two prongs with contacts that engage when the plunger is pressed. The plunger will not stay down because the prongs are bent and/or dirty. clean the contact, push the prongs closer to the contact and that should do it. Becareful about how you disconnect and reconnect the wires. That is the mistake that I made, and the fuse blew. BTW, if you fix yours, please let me know what kind of fuse is on it. The fuse is in a sheet in a cluster of wires between the two plungers.

When you push the slide down on the side, there's a wire that it pushes down inside the toaster. If the wire gets bent down a bit, pushing the slide down doesn't push the wire down enough. The wire is like a teeter totter. When it gets pushed down, it closes the circuit which turns the toaster on. The reason why the slide doesn't stay down is without energy, the electromagnet doesn't get engaged. That's what keeps the slide down. You need to remove the 4 screws on the bottom, and the 2 screws that hold the legs on that also hold the side on with the slide. Once the side is off, take a pair of needle nose pliers and bend the wire up a bit that acts as the teeter totter.
