Question about Bosch Kitchen Appliances - Others
Sent away for repair once, and came back with a new control board. Toaster refuses to latch on when cold. If you let it heat up first and then try to latch it sometimes works. When you unplug the toaster to ''reboot'' it the main earth leakage breaker in the house trips. This doesn't happen with other items in this socket. Expensive piece of garbage. Bosch are still high priced but no longer the quality they once were.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

The toaster lever is held down by a magnetic coil.
It is the small cube shaped thing with the red wire would around it. More than likely the coil is open. Second guess would be the coil is not being energized.
Outside chance the problem could be mechanical and related to the steel plate that will set on top of the coil when the lever is pushed down.

SOURCE: The toaster portion on my
I just took mine apart. There is a small 24v relay that should switch and allow the toaster elements to come on.
If it is not staying down then there magnetic coil is not working. There is another question like this here.

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.
