Question about Toastmaster T75R Classic Cool Steel 2-Slice Toaster
Hi, The knob that you push down (which usually hitches down and slides up little by little as the toast is toasting (you can still hear the ticking noise when it's suppose to be sliding up), doesn't hitch down, but instead slides right back up. I removed the bottom steel plate and cleaned it out. I thought there was something blocking the bottom of the track so that the knob wouldn't go all the way down, but still the knob won't stay down to slide up slowly with the toasting. Can you help? While this is an old toaster, it is much more durable, heavy than what you can buy today. Many thanks.

if you mean the toast itself doesn't toast on one side, check that both heating elements have about the same resistance value. One could be twice as conductive as the other and not heat as much as the other side.
If you mean the other two slots don't toast, the problem could be in the switch or in the elements themselves. check carefully the continuity of the toaster across the (unplugged) ac power connector while you push the toaster load handle down on each side. If the resistance is significantly larger on the problem side, the problem is either the switch or the elements. The problem is usually with the switch becoming corroded or oxidized. The switch is supposed to be self-cleaning, that is, it wipes itself as contact is made to help remove buildup. Sandpaper both contacts until they shine copper colored. Otherwise look at the elements while toasting. dark areas mean lower wattage is being dissipated and the element may be bad near a dark spot.

SOURCE: 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,

If its a Dualit model then you should be able to get it repaired. Generally replacing parts on a Dualit is not easy but spares are usually available thanks to the fact that its one of the most well known commercial toasters on the market. Google and see if there's a repairer in your area.
