Braun 550 Toaster

Hello there,

I'm hoping someone can help me find a solution to my problem. I just bought a new toaster, and it worked fine on the first day, but from the second day, when i depress the lever to start toasting, it doesn't stay down and comes up immediately.

    Hi, My cuisinart CPT-180 4 slice toaster worked for two years. No only the two left slots work. The two right slots won't stay down.

    Anyway this can be repaired rather than just replacing it?

Return it to vendor for replacement.
Small electricals such as Toasters, Kettles, Computer parts, Audio & Cameras and the like do not get repaired - they get replaced and the seller is the place to go.

Tthe lever on my Braun HT 600 toaster won't stay down. 3 years old, but very moderate use. Ideas?

Be sure to unplug toaster first. While inverting your toaster, depress the toaster lever(s) and shake toaster to clear all bread crumbs. It can take up to several minutes of shaking to clear them completely, however, the key is to depress the toaster levers down at the same time. Also, remember to remove bread crumb trays and empty regularly, as the trays are too shallow and allow crumbs to build up quickly, thereby blocking the "locking mechanism" of the lever(s).

If after cleaning your toaster out thoroughly, the levers still won't remain depressed, try various outlets throughout your kitchen. Oftentimes, when one GFI (Ground Fault Indicator) trips, several outlets along the same circuit will also trip.

Also, there is a website called, which has a very good database of many manuals for various manufacturers and models of toasters, should all of the above efforts fail.

I did all of the above and fixed my toaster within five minutes. :- )

Good luck to you.
