SOURCE: Bread won't toast
We ran into the same problem today with our toaster. There was never a problem before I cleaned it--not only by sliding out the crumb drawer, but by turning it upside down to dislodge every last crumb. After that, It would not stay down when pushed down.
My husband took the cover off and found that a magnet is what keeps the lever down when the toaster's on, and allows it to go back up when the toasting is done. It's an electro magnet that works only when the toaster is on. It seems that when I turned the unit upside down and rightside up again, crumbs landed on the magnet's contact plates (which are about 1/4" x 1/2") and would not allow the magnet to engage. Because the magnet wouldn't engage, the lever would not stay down, and the toaster shut off. Brush off the magnets, replace the cover and toast away!

Most times this is caused by a build up of crumbs in the bottom of the toaster. There is a small electo magnet that holds the lever down, if it gets covered in crumbs it won't work. Take it outside turn it upside down and bang the heck out of it till everything comes out. If this does not work then check and make sure the magnet is still attatched inside. Other than that, this toaster gets terrible reviews from folks with issues just like yours. I can only assume the electronics are failing on these units far to quickly. It can be repaired if yuou send it in to the manufacture but that is really not economical. I hope the upside down banging cures the problem.

while the lever is pressed down, there is a metal inside the toasted that locks it and debars it from coming up, so it would stay down.
From the look of this, this metal maybe broken, or fallen off. The unfortunate thing is that there is no such part sold, so you just have to manage or manipulate using the toaster if it happens that the metal is broken.
Turn off the toaster, remove it from the wall, get a Philips screw driver, disassemble the toaster to gain access to the lever and press the lever down and see what making it not lock. If you don't see anything, then metal holding it may have fallen off, or the lever may have work.
What you will have to do now is that whenever you press the lever down, you can use something like a think paper or small stick or copper wire to shock the lever. This would prevent it from coming back up. It would make the lever stay hooked downwards. So when you are through, you can remove whatsoever object that you used in hooking the lever.
I hope the above is clear.
