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.

How to remove the cover on an oster toaster TSSTRTS2S2-033


re: Oster TSSTRTS2S2-033 disassembly

Hi, I just took one apart to fix a cold solder joint, so here's my take on disassembly.

The brushed aluminum cover comes off by removing nine screws on the bottom, then manipulating seven tabs and removing the main handle on the plunger.

First, remove the main handle. It has a small plastic locking tab underneath and the tab may break because it hooks onto a metal spike in the toaster and this seems intended to be permanent. I broke it because I just pulled the handle straight off, but I'm not worried because the handle will still go back on reasonably tight; it just won't lock. However, if you want to try to remove it without breaking the plastic locking tab, I would try sticking a thin screwdriver under the bottom of the handle to disengage the plastic tab from the spike.

Next, remove nine of eleven screws on the bottom. Don't remove the two screws directly below the cord switch on the side - it should be obvious which two screws stay on. And take the crumb tray out too.

Next, there are three metal tabs on the bottom that need to be bent. Two of the tabs were held by the removed screws at the back of the toaster. Just bend those two out of the way away from the plastic bottom. The third tab is located in a hole directly between those other two tabs. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and twist the tab so it will unlock and allow the tab to slide through the slot in the plastic toaster bottom.

The four remaining tabs are located on the top of the toaster just inside the main toast slots. The top metal cover folds into the toast slots and forms metal tabs at each end of each toast slot. They unhook relatively easily by sliding the top cover tabs about 1mm towards the centre of the toaster - there's no bending of metal required.

At that point, it takes some playing around to actually remove the cover. Start by working it straight upwards, then lift it off at the back of the toaster first, before the front because there's a cable at the front of the toaster that prevents the top cover from lifting completely off straight up and, as well, the metal plunger arm that holds the handle will be the last thing to unhook. The plunger arm and the cord retraction mechanisms do get in the way, but it is possible to do it without forcing anything.

Note that after the metal cover is unfastened and pulled off, it is still attached to the toaster mechanism by a short internal electronics cable which connects the toaster to the front buttons in the cover. The front buttons and display remain attached inside the cover. At this point, the toaster should still function normally despite it having the cover off.

I hope that helps.

I am trying to take apart the toaster, but am having problems figuring out how to. On the bottom I removed the cord clamp and there is a black plastic piece on the bottom that appears to be a snap, however...


You need to remove the four rubber feet at the four corners, and that's where the screws are. Get a small flathead screwdriver and pry the rubber feet out of their sockets and you'll see small screws.

What kind of screw head is the star shaped one on tefal toaster


If its star shaped it's a Torx. Is there a small protrusion in the center of the star?
That would be a "Security Torx" screw and requires a special Torx bit... one with a hole in the center.
These are readily availble in most tolls supply places such as Sears

How do I remove the upper housing assembly to clean out the toaster? I have a KitchenAid model KTT340OB


In the event that you DO need to take it apart, my KTT570 had two of the six screws hidden by rubber feet on the bottom of the toaster. Remove the feet by carefully prying them out with a very small straight-slot screw driver. They are essentially just rubber plugs about 3/4 of an inch in length. They are located on the end from which the crumb-tray is extracted. There are ONLY six screws so don't remove the rubber feet on the opposite end. You will need to remove the darkness knob and the handle from the end of the toast-lowering mechanism prior to removing the cover.

Morphy Richards coolstyle Model 44880 4 slice toster


I have the 44280 2-slice version and had similar problems. To dismantle, unscrew the two star-shaped screw heads which hold the retaining slides in place. I don't have a star socket (female), only the usual male, so I used a pair of pliers. Pull out the two chrome slides. Pull off the two knobs also using pliers. Remove the outer casing with care as there are two fine wires attached. Now you can see the problem - probably a broken or lost nylon retaining catch on the electromagnet, and probably unobtainable by an individual. At this stage I decided to buy a new toaster!

The level of the toaster doesn't lock


I doubt if you can fix this without taking the unit apart. Usually it is not that difficult to remove the cover. Unplug the unit. Turn the toaster upside down and remove the screws holding the outside case on. The case usually slides off or by springing the bottom of the sides out you should be able to remove it. Once the cover is off it should be easy and obvious to fix the problem you described. When you have the unit secured reverse the order to assemble the unit and you should be back in business. Good luck.
