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.

My breville toaster model BTA840XL won't drop the bread in for toasting


If your power-socket is off, it won't. (I've done it several times, foolishly cursing the toaster). :rolleyes:
Otherwise unplug from wall, remove covers, check by pressing base down with a pen etc. On most auto-eject toasters, a powerful electromagnetic solenoid (electric magnet) holds the base (slice carriage) down while cool and warming up. When preset temperature is reached, solenoid is de-energized, releasing its magnetic hold on the base, allowing springs to pop bread up.
If you (or friend) has a tester and expertise, check solenoid (small coil) for resistance. If OK, (not open circuit), problem is in control circuitry.

The fact that pressing down the lever fails, means the toaster contact will not function and can not be repaired. Since a two slice toaster is only $15 at Target, why bother fixing a toaster?

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.

Lever on toaster will not stay down


For what it might cost to fix it buy a better brand of toaster for about 10% of the cost of this horrible brand.
You'll notice their new ones are "smart" toasters with NO LEVER. You push a button and the electronics takes care of the rest (and blow up quickly.)
$15 to $25 at Walmart.. instead of $100 to $200.
