look inside your toaster. there must be something inside it turn it down and see if something comes out.. if nothing is inside then try to see if the cord that you switched on is not broken. if you see a liitle bit scratch mark on it- switch off. You can get a electric shock. it is your favorite toaster so try to consult a electricion to fix the cord for you.

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.

SOURCE: Expensive toaster doesn't work

I broke mine trying to fix this, but the fix is very easy. remove the out shell and you will see two prongs with contacts that engage when the plunger is pressed. The plunger will not stay down because the prongs are bent and/or dirty. clean the contact, push the prongs closer to the contact and that should do it. Becareful about how you disconnect and reconnect the wires. That is the mistake that I made, and the fuse blew. BTW, if you fix yours, please let me know what kind of fuse is on it. The fuse is in a sheet in a cluster of wires between the two plungers.

I have a convection bread maker. I made one loaf of bread tonight and i unplugged the machine. 30 minutes later, I tried to make a second loaf ant the menu select wouldn't work but the start and mix in...


Cuisinart has many different bread machine models. Next time you ask a question, please include a model number. Thank you.

Here's my generic best advice for you dear:

Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:


1. Unplug the breadmaker.

2. Confirm the power source you're accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.

3. Plug the breadmaker in.

4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:


    1. Some models have a built-in off/on toggle power switch. Turn it to the ON position.
    2. Some models confirm power by making and audible tone when plugged in.
    3. Some models have a colored light and/or a lighted display screen that lights up.
    4. Some models require you press and hold the Select button down until the unit powers up.
    5. Some models require you press and hold the Start button down until the unit powers up.
    6. Some models require you select a mode first by pressing the Select button.
    7. Some models require you press and hold the Stop button down until the unit powers up.


Were you able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power?


No. Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or simply discard it.


Yes, Fantastic! Now reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing and holding down the Stop button down until you receive a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 1 to 5 seconds. Note: Some models require you press and hold the Start button. Others require you press and hold the Select button.

Often the + and - Timer Delay buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours. If you suspect the Timer Delay feature has been engaged accidentally, you'll need to reboot the breadmaker's electronics.


All breadmaker use a belt and pulley system. If your breadmaker powers-up but the mixer won't turn when it's supposed to, your belt is probably broken. You'll need to disassemble the breadmaker to visually confirm.

The bread won't stay down. The lever keeps coming back up


There is a bottom pan that gets clogged up with bits of bread, turn the toaster upside down and turn the set screw on the pan and open, flip the toaster back over and shake it, this will release a lot particles, keep at it until you removed as much as possible, this should the toaster for sometime.

What is back to basic toaster?


Toaster of the first order wherein there is only the heating coils arranged on either sides and the bread is loaded on the slits to be pressed down to hold on.
When the set temperature is reached then the bimetal switch releases the lock and releases the bread up.
This is the basic model with no electronics inside.

Help with toaster. anyone there?


Well, I'm not a toaster pro, but I do make my fair share of toast.... I have an idea for you, I researched your product and couldn't find any specific help but try this:
Unplug your toaster, firmly hold the mechanism in the down position as far down as it will go, then turn the unit upside down, give it a good shake and flip the lever a bit. Reinvert, plug it in and see if you've got any improvement. (I think I learned this trick from the Andy Griffith show... you know old Emmett and the fix it shop) let me know if it worked! Sorry I can't be more help.

I have a pink two slicer kitchen aide Toaster. The button to pull down the bread to toast will not stay on. Where can I order/buy a new pink one? thanks kathie


Before tossing out the toaster, check on the inside of the toaster, you may have a wire bread closure in there that is blocking the lever.

I took my son's toaster apart when they replaced it, and found a bread closure inside it, blocking the lever. Anything small enough to fall inside could do this too. (The toaster works fine now, and I use it myself!)

Make sure you unplug the toaster first, you don't want to have a "shocking" experience.

Turn the toaster upside down and shake it a few times, over the kitchen sink, and then open and clean the "crumb" compartment.

Sorry to tell you this, but, your toaster is no longer available on the market, you might want to check a few thrift shops in your area...or you can check this link for another model that is pink and a KitchenAid.

I have a Phillips toaster. It has been working


it sounds like the magnetic coil which holds the lever down to the toast position has burned out. you probably can't get the part for repairing it as it would be too costly
