Just fixed my Breville CT20. Cleaned the contacts, there were no impeding crumbs so I tested again and still wouldn't stay locked. I finally replaced the 470uf 16v capacitor on the control board just below the electromagnet and wow, works like a brand new toaster! I got lucky, saving bits and pieces of old circuits sometimes pays off.

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.

Left side does not drop toast down, elements work.


I had to take my toaster outside and clean out the sidees of each slot. There was debris baked on and it had the wire frame stuck. Once I cleaned, scraped and emptied out the junk, the toaster works fine.

Toaster will not stay down when you put toast in


I found that the problem was caused by crumbs getting onto the electro-magnets that hold the toaster down, and onto the contacts that supply power to the magnets ant elements. Removing the cover was the trickiest part - my machine had screws with triangular holes in the heads that a normal screwdriver would not fit. I found, however, that these are the same screws as used in McDonalds Happy Meal toys, and you can get special drivers on ebay or from amazon for them. After that it was just a question of cleaning all the contact points inside the toaster (make sure the toaster is UNPLUGGED!!). 15 minute job.

The lever won't stay depressed


mcdevito75 here, The lever mechanism could be worn OR the setting for darker / Lighter toast is set to Light, swtch to darker see if that helps.

Lever will not stay down unless you hold it down to cook the toast


The latching relay is either faulty, or the timer module has faulted. That usually happens when the Toaster has a "Fault" on it. I suspect that the Timer has faulted. Toasters really aren't usually fixed, but if you have a handy appliance repair shop why not get a quote, for a repair, or replacement.

Toaster won't stay in down position in order to toast - Cuisinart CPT-160 - although it will toast if I hold the lever down as it toasts


We opened up our toaster and scraped some baked-on crumbs off the top of the electromagnet that controls the carriage catch. When we closed it back up, it worked again.

Can you turn off the annoying beep when toast is


Hate to tell you this, but from the looks of their manuals on the similar Australian model, then no.

"When the toasting cycle is complete, the toaster will ‘beep’ to indicate that the toast is ready. No need to wait while the toast cooks."
