Usually, four screws under the bottom remove the top but the toast loader lever knob is usually press fitted on. Some units have bent tabs to hold them together if screws are not used. To remove the knob, freeze the unit (to shrink the knob/lever) then place a flat piece of wood like a ruler wrapped in cloth on the housing behind the knob and use a large bladed screwdriver to try to work the knob off. If you break it superglue and epoxy, and drawer knobs not plastic or wood might work as a replacement.

Instructions for instructions forToaster Oven - Hamilton Beach Model = 22708 H, Series A4560B1

The manual for some Hamilton Beach Toaster Ovens are available from the Hamilton Beach support site, . However, the 22708H is not currenty available. The 22708, 22708C and 22708W are available. (I also see a 22709H and 22704H).

Check your model number and then see if the manuals for the similar models are close enough to use with your toaster oven. This is the direct link for the 22708 manual: .

I hope this helps.

It has to be adjusted through the temperature knob. You change the temperature and the main handle will get locked in down position. Just

My hamilton beach brewstation is leaking.

There is a spring between the lever and the o-ring. It may have popped out when you cleaned the pot. That has happened to me before. The spring is necessary to hold the seal down until the lever is pushed.

Digital Display no longer showing, lever won't stay down

jsullivan22 is right about the diode. I have this problem with my 24502, which is a dual version of this. There are 2 circuit boards in your unit one with the LED display on it and another one. The diode needing replacing is on the other board. it is in the center of the board, right next to a large (1/2W or 1W) 2K ohm resistor. The diode is probably part number 3ez24d5. Test it with the diode test on your DMM, if it is bad you will get 0V both directions (I think). Also if you measure it with the Ohm function it will probably measure less than an Ohm (check the zero on your DMM as many are not accurate down this low) You can probably replace it with a <a id="ctl00_ContentMain_CartGrid_grid_ctl02_ctl00_lnkManufacturerPartNumber" href="" style="font-weight: bold;">1N5934BG</a> or a <a id="ctl00_ContentMain_CartGrid_grid_ctl03_ctl00_lnkManufacturerPartNumber" href="" style="font-weight: bold;">1N5359BG</a> Mouser stocks both of these&nbsp; (currently). I haven\'t gotten my parts so I can\'t guarantee these will work, but I\'m pretty sure. I will try the latter first as I\'m hoping it\'s higher power rating will keep it from burning out again, although I will be buying several spares. <br><br>This is clearly a design issue with these toasters and one that could be easily corrected. Both circuit boards in my toaster are very toasty in the area of these diodes, although I\'m sure the fact that these boards are mounted very close to the heating elements doesn\'t help their longevity.<br><br>Hope this helps everyone.
