Question about KitchenAid KTT570 4-Slice Toaster
Our toaster recently started having this problem. When the toaster is cool, it works fine for the initial toasting. If we want to toast our bread more after it pops up, we have to do it immediately or the lever won't stay latched. If we don't get there right away, we have to wait a long time and repeatedly depress the lever to get it to toast the bread more, or to toast different pieces of bread of course. I assume it has to do with safety and heating, but it didn't do this before. Is this something we can fix easily, or would we be better off to just get a new toaster?
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,

I had the same problem with this model. Made sure it was unplugged, took the 4 screws out of the bottom as others did. Pulled off the handle for the toast push down and the knob for the darkness control (it took some effort but came off ok, if you can tilt the darkness knob opposite the number 1 it will come off easier, there's a hook-tab right at the 1 position).
My problem was with one of the points on the 4 copper tabs that come together as the toast is pushed down. The outer copper tab was slightly out of alignment when the toast was in it's latched position and broke the circuit making it never want to latch. I bent the problem one into alignment and solved the problem.

Kitchenaid does not recommend repair on the toasters, as it is not cost effective for the consumer or company to engage in repair.
I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. If the unit is within the 1 Year Warranty, they may replace it at no cost. If the unit is outside of warranty, they may provide discounts on the purchase of a new toaster.
Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.
