SOURCE: My Krups model 288 toaster won't always latch down.

You can fix this yourself by following these instructions. Unplug your toaster before proceeding!... Clean the toaster first. Turn the toaster upside-down and shake out the crumbs. Remove and clean the bottom crumb tray. 1. Unscrew the four Phillips head screws located in the corners of the bottom base. Remove the screws completely if possible. Do this over a cloth or newspaper - that way a stuck screw won't get lost if it falls out later. 2. With the toaster right-side up, pull off the wide toast lever knob. Do not remove the round adjustment knob (it will not come off from the outside) but make a mental note of what number (1-7) is showing at the knob's adjustment mark. 3. Carefully pry up the end of the case cover with the knob on it (don't pull on the "stop" button). When the knob's plastic shaft is clear of the circuit board, gently pull off the cover. 4. On the inner part of the circuit board you will see a black plastic "cam" surrounded by two sets of electrical contacts. Rotate the cam to open the contact points if necessary. Insert a thin nail file between the points and rotate the cam to trap the file between them, then scrub back and forth several times to clean the contact points. Do this for each contact on both sides of the cam. When finished, rotate the cam clockwise so it is all the way back down to it's original position. 5. To make re-assembly easier, remove the round adjustment knob from the cover by depressing the half-round shaft flanges inside the cover with your fingernails. 6. Re-assemble the toaster by reversing steps 1 & 2. Replace the knobs, making sure that the round one is in the same position you noted earlier before you push it all the way down.

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,
1. WD-40

SOURCE: toaster won't stay in down position

We opened up our toaster and scraped some baked-on crumbs off the top of the electromagnet that controls the carriage catch. When we closed it back up, it worked again.

Control lever will not stay down


Unless you have power switch on to the toaster, the level will not stay down. Ensure you have main power available!
If the unit is powered, check that the 'toast darkeness' level is set accordingly - it is this 'thermostat' that determines when to eject the toast: if you checked that you have power and that the darkness level is not set to zero and it still does not work, then it is time to get a new toaster! If not under warranty, it is probably not worth trying to get it repaired.

My toaster will not turn off. I press the toast button, it does it's job and then pops up, but the heating elements will continue to stay on.


It sounds like the temperature sensor has malfunctioned. When the sensor reaches a certain temperature it opens the contact to the heating elements shutting off the toaster. If the unit is under warranty then take it to a repair facility for Krups. I would not allow anyone to use the toaster. If left on it could cause a fire. Take care, stay safe and good luck with your unit!

I have a Phillips toaster. It has been working


it sounds like the magnetic coil which holds the lever down to the toast position has burned out. you probably can't get the part for repairing it as it would be too costly

Toaster will not stay down in toast position


uh, don't think there's a good chance, you could try to send toaster in for repair, but buying a new toaster is probably cheaper.

Lever will not stay down on Krups 155 ToastControl Compact


No promises, but I had a similar problem with a Breville Clasic. Toasters these days use a solenoid (electromagnet) to hold down the toast carriage. This solenoid is usually soldered to the circuit board, and is reasonably big, i.e. 1/3 a cigarette pack.. on mine, because of repeated impact when the carriage is pushed down, one solder connection developed a haiirline fracture. This meant that most of the time it wouldn't stay down. I resoldered the connections and all ok.

Problem with jaipan toaster


the release mechanism contains a bimetallic strip that snaps open when a certain amount of power goes through it based on the setting. When cold, it should trap the toast loading lever mechanism. If not, it may be broken or bent. Don't work on it with power applied
