I have researched this toaster quite extensively, without any success as to actual solutions. Usually these machines have either a solenoid activated lever that holds the toast down, although magnetic systems are not uncommon. These may be avtivated by a thermostat, an optical "brownness" meter or a timer. Usually the cost of replacing this would be as much as a new toaster due to labour costs, however it may possibly be fixable - could you add a photo of the internal workings - this might help. Unfortunately many other purchasers appear to have similar problems and claim to have had little success with either dealer or manufacturer. The number of toasters of this model offered for sale second-hand as new at ridiculously low prices makes me suspect that there is a fundamental problem with the model. Use any warranty you have, but unless you wish to write a lot of letters/mails then i suspect a new toaster might be your best bet. Availability of spares for this toaster is another issue - I have been unable to find anyone who claims to supply these, although individual components are almost certainly from different manufacturers and could be sourced. If you can arrange a photo of the toaster when open (reasonably close up and general view) then I may be able to help more. Apologies for no actual "Solution" yet.

I had the same problem with this model. Made sure it was unplugged, took the 4 screws out of the bottom as others did. Pulled off the handle for the toast push down and the knob for the darkness control (it took some effort but came off ok, if you can tilt the darkness knob opposite the number 1 it will come off easier, there's a hook-tab right at the 1 position).
My problem was with one of the points on the 4 copper tabs that come together as the toast is pushed down. The outer copper tab was slightly out of alignment when the toast was in it's latched position and broke the circuit making it never want to latch. I bent the problem one into alignment and solved the problem.

YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE DIODE THAT LITES THE LCD. A .99 CENT PART. SELLER SHOULD REPLACE THE TOASTER WITH OUT QUESTION.

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.
