Question about Russell Hobbs 10617 Glass 2-Slice Toaster
The raising & lowering handle mechanism has become loose. As we have found a screw, I suspect the chrome/wood inserted handle is becoming detatched from the toast support bar.
How do I actrually take the Toaster apart ? There does not appear to be standard screws in the base. The problem is getting access to the link between the handle and toast support bar.

may have screws on the bottom and the loader knob usually has to be pried off. Place soft wood like a ruler against the housing and pry carefully from side to side with a large screwdriver. After working on it, plug it in outside to a ground-fault ac plug on a fireproof surface to test.

The ICU is a 16C56-02 microprocessor. However, I don't think you can just swap chips - it has to be programmed first, so unless you have an eprom and know the correct code....
If all of the lights work, and the toaster works, but the lever doesn't stay down (seems to be the common issue), I would try resoldering the transistor legs on the circuit board. The transistor is used to switch the magnetic solenoid that controls the lever. Mine had a cold solder joint, and when I resoldered, it worked fine. Wouldn't be surprised if they put out a whole bunch of boards with the same issue. Good luck.
