Hi,

Very often it's simply crumbs in the wrong place.

Unplug it and take it outside. Remove any little drawers you have completely, and brush them out with a stiff brush.

Turn toaster upsidedown, and bang the sides with your flat palm to empty crumbs. Because of the design, this doesn't get everything out, and you may need to do it upright, and upsidedown again.
While upsidedown, press the levers fully down, and agitate them on the bottom stop.

This should remove the crumbs from the electromagnet armature.
This operates when a flat plate rests on the elecromagnet. If there are crumbs in the way - it wont hold.

If there is still a problem after this, please contact again, or rate so that other may follow the advice given. Thank you.

Kitchen aid 2-slice toaster stopped working. It is plugged in to a good outlet.


The wiring is probably the problem. Check the connections. And then the elements . It may be burned in two.

Received 2 slice toaster (kitchenaid) as a gift - from the very 1st time it was used, only the outer coils would heat up, so only 1/2 of each slice ever gets toasted!!! Anyone who could help solve this...


I think it is set to cook bagels. Check the control settings.
Most toasters have a bagel setting which only cooks the
sliced side of the bagel. This model is designed to accept bagels. Hope this helps.

The lever button does not stay down,so the toaster does not come on. Even if I hold the lever button down,the toaster does not come on.The toaster is cleaned on a regulas basis.


My toaster did the same thing. I cleaned the contacts on the mechanical switch with emery cloth and that problem was solved. Now I'm trying to figure out how to stop the breaker points on the mechanical switch from arcing - which I assume caused the problem in the first place.
