The button I push to toast ( like a rocker switch ) won't latch when I toast, need to hold the switch to toast. This is a model TRO-360-TY5.
I took apart the toaster and there seem to be a magnet that holds the switch until the time is up. magnet is attached to a small logic card.
Please help me determine the part I need to fix this problem. Thanks.

Re: button to toast won't latch
THE BOARD IS BAD .the problem is b&d will not sell it to you . i had one that i DID FIX , there was a problem in the power supply on the board , i checked out the parts i needed there where 2 diodes , and an scr transistor i found bad . ordered them (with shipping 28.00 ) got them and installed . and the first power up POP the ic timer blew apart and damaged the two diodes . cost of the ic another 25.00 plus the other parts. so i now have around 60.00 in parts and 4 hours labor in to my great working 7 year old toaster oven ( that i only paid 25.00 for in the first place ) so unless your like me and never give up ,NO MATTER WHAT ! its time for a new toaster oven ......... if this answer helped please rate a 3 or 4 stars this high rateing will help keep me in the paid answer department , thank you

Most of the time this problem is caused by a build-up of toast crumbs in the latch mechanism. Unplug the toaster oven and follow the instruction manual directions for cleaning the toaster section. Try cycling the toaster lever up and down a few times, then clean out the crumb tray again. If that doesn't solve the problem, you'll have to look for an access to the latch mechanism to clean it out and perhaps gently straighten the latch hook if needed. Note: these are generic directions for all such toasters. I can't be more specific without knowing which model in the Waring Pro line you have.
The buttons latch is actually an electromagnet that is engaged and disengaged by a small timer located on the toasters circuit board. The most likely reason why the button will not stay latched is a bad connection to the magnet. Unplug the toaster and open the right side panel by removing the machine screw located on the underside of the toaster. You will notice a pretty simple circuit board with 2 (usually red) wires leading to the magnet. If you have trouble locating the magnet, push the "toast" button and watch out for the component it butts up too. Because the wires attached to the magnet are soldered firmly to the circuit board, the poor connection is usually at the magnet. Gently push the wires towards the magnet to ensure a good connection. To test, plug the toaster in, being sure to remove any tools or loose components from the toaster, and push in the button so see if it latches. If it does latch, open the door to disengage and unplug the toaster before reassembling. If it does not latch, you may need to replace the magnet.
I had the same problem which was getting worse. Eventually I took the oven apart by removing the feet, shell and front. Then I removed the circuit board on the front panel which has all the switches on it. We never use the "Defrost" function, so using a soldering iron, I swapped the "Toast" switch with the "Defrost" switch. The Toast function now works normally. I plan to get some spare switches for the next time one of these goes wrong. While I had one of them out I checked it out and a Panasonic P/N EVQ-PAE05R available from Digi-Key P/N P12192S-ND looks like it will do the trick.
Toaster switch does not stay down. I have to hold the switch down to get toast. The heating element works fine as does the oven. Can we fix the switch? Or, do you know someone to whom we can send it for repair? Thanks!
I don't know if you can fix it but if you are good at basic diagnosis you can take off the right side and see if the toast latch is broken or perhaps out of place. This type of unit is not so easy to take apart and put back together. The parts fit is a bit strange.
