Adjust the screw on the bottom which adjusts the tension created by the heaters. If this doesn't work, "bump" it some to dislodge crumbs that may be inferfering with the trip lever for the thermostat.
If nothing works, try kitchenmade usa or toaster central who both work on and fix vintage toasters.

I found another site that described the fix. On the bottom of the toaster, after removing the crumb tray, there is a screw in the middle that can be turned to adjust the sensitivity of the lift mechanism. Here's a link to the site

I have a Sunbeam T-20B that I love. Have kept it working, but now with a new partner who did not understand it does not turn on! Can you help?

There is a screw at the bottom of the toaster under the bread crumb tray to adjust the sensitivity to weight, usually just needs a half or quarter turn to work. If that doesn't work you may have to open it up and adjust the bimetallic thermostat, and that's much trickier.

Russell Hobbs RH2T toaster bread won't stay down w/o hold handle

Hi, most new toaster have a selenoid that hold down the handle while toasting then release when done so a spring bring the toast up. Possible problem with the selenoid, the electronic circuit that controls it or the plate that the selenoid holds. When you lower the handle you close the contacts of the AC line inside the toaster so if the handle is raised there is no power.
