Handle for Lever Won't Stay On

Our Black & Decker T4200 toaster has worked very well for the last 4 years except the handle on the left side won't stay on.

I can't find a way to disassemble the toaster to repair it since the right lever handle stays in place and doesn't seem to be designed for removal.

We certainly now know when the toast is done in the left 2 slots as the handle is projected into the air when the toast pops up.

All suggestions are appreciated.

    Same problem. Both handles fell off. Took off the cover and inspected the unit to understand how the lever, handle, and retaining clip assemble -- no pieces seem to be broken. I'm a bit baffeled as to the engineering that went into the design of this 'toaster lever handle'...

SOURCE: Black & Decker T-1029 2-slice Toaster - lever broken

Main problem with these is crumbs, they get stuck between the 2 surfaces of the small electromagnet that keeps the lever down, consequently it does not stick anymore, try drop kicking it in the drection of the garbage can, this sort fright may just scare it into working again.

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,
1. WD-40

GE toaster model 169100. : the lever to toast won't stay down. I researched removing the base to clean the magnets, but not regular Phillips screws. Suggestions??


I have the same GE toaster and now my lever won\'t lock in place when I push it down to cook my toast. The handle does not pull off and when you turn the toaster over there are no screws to take the toaster apart. So I guess I have to say this is a disposable toaster but I am extremely bummed because it is beautiful and match decor and microwave that has the same color scheme as my toaster.

I wish companies would stop making cheap junk that doesn\'t last more then a few years.

De Longhi CT021.A x 2 slice toaser - Won't stay down


Is it plugged in. You may have to do a little handy work, unplug the unit and look to see where it catches when the handle is in down position, you may have to open the bottom door. There is a little catch when the handle is down it may need to be bent a little not much.

Toast will not stay down in toaster when lever is depressed, actually lever will not stay down. how to fix it?


Most times this is caused by a build up of crumbs in the bottom of the toaster. There is a small electo magnet that holds the lever down, if it gets covered in crumbs it won't work. Take it outside turn it upside down and bang the heck out of it till everything comes out. If this does not work then check and make sure the magnet is still attatched inside. Other than that, this toaster gets terrible reviews from folks with issues just like yours. I can only assume the electronics are failing on these units far to quickly. It can be repaired if yuou send it in to the manufacture but that is really not economical. I hope the upside down banging cures the problem.

There are two printed circuit boards inside front of toaster - One PC board for each side. The circuit board on the side that won't latch down in the "toasting" position , is defective. Now, does anyone have access to a schematic for this toaster?

Our toaster stopped working a little while ago, but it is outside the (presumably) one year warranty period. It's a 4 slice, soft touch black toaster, cost about £75, I think it is this model. It only...


remove from the electricity supply
remove crumb tray,
remove bottom 4 os 6 screws.
at the bottom of the toaster there is what liooks like a flat fish hook that engages with the handle when you push the handle down to start toasting. clean around this and try to get it to engage when you push the handle down, it wont stay down unless the electricity is connected but dont plug it in as you will probably kill your self!!
put it back together abd try it
if it does not work 4 slice toaster from Tesco £9.99

Black and /decker toaster model T3550. The outside elements work but the middle ones do not. so only one side of the bread is toaster.And the handle must be held down the whole time to toast


The heating element wire is really thin and there is a great posssibilty of breakage. There is also a spring switch in which the lever locks when toasting. needs replacement.
