Kitchen aid 2-slice toaster stopped working. It is plugged in to a good outlet.


The wiring is probably the problem. Check the connections. And then the elements . It may be burned in two.

Tthe lever on my Braun HT 600 toaster won't stay down. 3 years old, but very moderate use. Ideas?


Be sure to unplug toaster first. While inverting your toaster, depress the toaster lever(s) and shake toaster to clear all bread crumbs. It can take up to several minutes of shaking to clear them completely, however, the key is to depress the toaster levers down at the same time. Also, remember to remove bread crumb trays and empty regularly, as the trays are too shallow and allow crumbs to build up quickly, thereby blocking the "locking mechanism" of the lever(s).

If after cleaning your toaster out thoroughly, the levers still won't remain depressed, try various outlets throughout your kitchen. Oftentimes, when one GFI (Ground Fault Indicator) trips, several outlets along the same circuit will also trip.

Also, there is a website called Manuals.com, which has a very good database of many manuals for various manufacturers and models of toasters, should all of the above efforts fail.

I did all of the above and fixed my toaster within five minutes. :- )

Good luck to you.

Lever will not stay depressed


Hello. The first thing to try is to set the toasting level to a darker setting. Often this alone will solve the problem. If not, the mechanism which prevents burning or even a fire is simply worn out and it is time to buy a new toaster. J.

Tefal avanti hi speed 4 slice toaster one side not working, Not staying down Left side right side ok


When the push down lever hits the bottom it pushes another little lever which makes contact with the positive and negative terminals. over time, these terminals get ever so slightly bent, especially if you start pushing the lever down hard. what you have to do is take the toaster apart, get to the positive and negative terminals and pinch back into shape with some pliers. you should understand once you look at it. Then put back together. if it doesn't work then it's likely a component has gone so, unless you have a multi-meter and a soldering iron I wouldn't suggest doing this.

Oh yeah, unplug it before you do anything.

I have the 4-slice oster, but I bet the control mechanism is the same. When you take it apart you will see a small steel bar held by two plastic fingers. When you push the lever down the steel bar moves down and contacts a small square electromagnet. The electromagnet holds the lever down during toasting and releases the lever when done. On mine there was a compressed layer of bread crumbs covering the electromagnet. Cleaned it off and now it works again.

To take the toaster apart, pull the down lever straight out and then unfasten the screws on the bottom base (5 on mine) and pull the top off carefully. There are wires connecting the control face to the base, but they have enough slack to let you separate the top/bottom and access the mechanism.

Possibly a GFI on an outlet of the same circuit as the toaster needs to be reset?

We had the same problem and so came here. When I read "replaced the fuse in the plug" my husband asked about the outlet GFI switches (he replaced the outlets last year, so he remembered they had GFI switches). One GFI on the toaster's circuit had "blown" and so needed to be reset. Before relegating the toaster to the recycling bin, check the it by plugging it into an outlet you know is working.
