I have researched this toaster quite extensively, without any success as to actual solutions. Usually these machines have either a solenoid activated lever that holds the toast down, although magnetic systems are not uncommon. These may be avtivated by a thermostat, an optical "brownness" meter or a timer. Usually the cost of replacing this would be as much as a new toaster due to labour costs, however it may possibly be fixable - could you add a photo of the internal workings - this might help. Unfortunately many other purchasers appear to have similar problems and claim to have had little success with either dealer or manufacturer. The number of toasters of this model offered for sale second-hand as new at ridiculously low prices makes me suspect that there is a fundamental problem with the model. Use any warranty you have, but unless you wish to write a lot of letters/mails then i suspect a new toaster might be your best bet. Availability of spares for this toaster is another issue - I have been unable to find anyone who claims to supply these, although individual components are almost certainly from different manufacturers and could be sourced. If you can arrange a photo of the toaster when open (reasonably close up and general view) then I may be able to help more. Apologies for no actual "Solution" yet.

SOURCE: Right side of the toaster will not heat up

At this point the problem is nit solved.
will look into a solution before investing any funds on the solution. There are many free options to be considered at this point.

Try cleaning the bread crumbs out of it. If you get enough piled up under the latch mechanism, you can't push it down far enough to engage it.

You may be able to do an adequate job by opening the bottom cover - most toasters are made so it's easily removed for this very purpose. If not, you'll need to pull off the knobs and remove screws so you can take off the top cover. Be careful not to touch the heater wires with any tools - after they've been used a while they become rather brittle and break easily, and even a scratch can cause them to erode and fail. I assume you know to unplug the toaster before working on it.

SOURCE: toast wont stay down in toaster it wont lock in

I'm at the same crossroad. Thry holding down the lever for more than 4-secs. The light will blink once, then it is as though the circuit is over-ridden and a toasting cycle will begin. This might help to eliminate wether you have a mechanical or electrical issue. Mine appears to be electrical. I'm now investigating if it is the timing or relay?

I could not locate the exact replacement power cord for your toaster oven. If the power cord is a plug -in type, you can look on line, do a search " small appliance power cords", but I'm not sure if you will be able to match up the correct cord. I think your best bet is to go to a local. old fashioned. hardware store or to a small appliance repair center. Take the original power cord with you to match it up.
