I have researched this toaster quite extensively, without any success as to actual solutions. Usually these machines have either a solenoid activated lever that holds the toast down, although magnetic systems are not uncommon. These may be avtivated by a thermostat, an optical "brownness" meter or a timer. Usually the cost of replacing this would be as much as a new toaster due to labour costs, however it may possibly be fixable - could you add a photo of the internal workings - this might help. Unfortunately many other purchasers appear to have similar problems and claim to have had little success with either dealer or manufacturer. The number of toasters of this model offered for sale second-hand as new at ridiculously low prices makes me suspect that there is a fundamental problem with the model. Use any warranty you have, but unless you wish to write a lot of letters/mails then i suspect a new toaster might be your best bet. Availability of spares for this toaster is another issue - I have been unable to find anyone who claims to supply these, although individual components are almost certainly from different manufacturers and could be sourced. If you can arrange a photo of the toaster when open (reasonably close up and general view) then I may be able to help more. Apologies for no actual "Solution" yet.

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,

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.
