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.

SOURCE: toaster lever wont stay down

Open the toaster up and look inside by the levers, there should be a little piece that will keep the lever down, if this is missing, then you may need to replace the toaster, if not, then the little piece may be stuck, you can use the following to try and loosen it up,
1. WD-40

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.

De Longhi CT021.A x 2 slice toaser - Won't stay down


Is it plugged in. You may have to do a little handy work, unplug the unit and look to see where it catches when the handle is in down position, you may have to open the bottom door. There is a little catch when the handle is down it may need to be bent a little not much.

Tthe lever on my Braun HT 600 toaster won't stay down. 3 years old, but very moderate use. Ideas?


Be sure to unplug toaster first. While inverting your toaster, depress the toaster lever(s) and shake toaster to clear all bread crumbs. It can take up to several minutes of shaking to clear them completely, however, the key is to depress the toaster levers down at the same time. Also, remember to remove bread crumb trays and empty regularly, as the trays are too shallow and allow crumbs to build up quickly, thereby blocking the "locking mechanism" of the lever(s).

If after cleaning your toaster out thoroughly, the levers still won't remain depressed, try various outlets throughout your kitchen. Oftentimes, when one GFI (Ground Fault Indicator) trips, several outlets along the same circuit will also trip.

Also, there is a website called Manuals.com, which has a very good database of many manuals for various manufacturers and models of toasters, should all of the above efforts fail.

I did all of the above and fixed my toaster within five minutes. :- )

Good luck to you.

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.

I just bought this kenmore 2 slice toaster and the toast lever won't stay down!?


Make sure it is set dark enough. Some toasters will not stay down if they are set too light.

Lever wont stay down, no red light


Two possibilities:
1:A wire has come off your toaster switch or plug top,shorted and blown the fuse, and all you would need to do was refit wire and replace fuse.or
2:The element has gone........probably cheaper to buy a new one

Hope I have resolved you question, but please leave positive feedback if so , as it still takes time to answer questions and it would just be nice to know if I have helped

Bread won't toast


We ran into the same problem today with our toaster. There was never a problem before I cleaned it--not only by sliding out the crumb drawer, but by turning it upside down to dislodge every last crumb. After that, It would not stay down when pushed down.

My husband took the cover off and found that a magnet is what keeps the lever down when the toaster's on, and allows it to go back up when the toasting is done. It's an electro magnet that works only when the toaster is on. It seems that when I turned the unit upside down and rightside up again, crumbs landed on the magnet's contact plates (which are about 1/4" x 1/2") and would not allow the magnet to engage. Because the magnet wouldn't engage, the lever would not stay down, and the toaster shut off. Brush off the magnets, replace the cover and toast away!

When i push the lever down to make toast, it does not stay


This is a problem, our old toaster had this problem, and it would only work if we jammed the handle down, but don't try this, only because ours broke after we tried this, but if you can send it to the manufacturure, they should be able to fix this. If you don't what to do this, please phone me at 505 9181, but please call me from 8:00-10:00, 2:30-8:00.

Very hard to remove the plastic cover from the toaster - Must Release Circuit Card First To my fellow owners of a KTT261. We have enjoyed using our KitchenAid toaster for many years but it eventually got so gummed up we could no longer reliably push the handle down to make toast AND it would also fail to latch or stay latched until the toasting cycle was completed. Not wanting to throw it out I wanted to try repairing it, but there was little info available online. So if you ever need to remove the plastic cover for maintenance here are a few tips. Of course UN-PLUG THE TOASTER COMPLETELY AND LET IT COOL DOWN TO ROOM TEMP!!! Remove the 4 screws on the bottom, two on each narrow side holding the top plastic cover to the bottom and pull off the plastic handle on the right which drops the bread down into the toaster cavity. That is the only obvious task. You will now notice that the cover still can't be removed because something on the right side near the front control panel isn't letting the cover detach from the base. That something is the control panel itself mounted into a white plastic holder glued to the cover and it's very short ribbon cable joining the two electronic circuit cards on the right near the handle which are mounted to the base. What to do. Using a long pair of needle nose pliers, or very small fingers and a long narrow screwdriver -or- all of the above and a second pair of hands, you must release the credit card sized front control panel electronic circuit card from the white plastic holder glued to the blue plastic toaster cover. This is not easy, but ultimately I was able to do it with my wife's help and repaired the toaster nicely. The control panel circuit card is held into the holder by a plastic latch at the top middle of the card. The latch protrudes thru a hole in the card. The bottom of the circuit card fits into 3 finger grooves on the holder. So the task is to release the upper plastic latch by moving it upward, while pushing the card away from the white plastic holder glued to the toaster cover then it will lift out of the bottom groove and be free of the cover. Then you can remove the cover completely, examine and fix the latching mechanism ...etc. IMPORTANT - Remember to study how it was held in originally, what orientation the parts were to each other, because the even harder part for us later after fixing the toaster latching mechanism was to reverse these steps and re-insert the control panel circuit card back into the holder...oye! There is just barely, ...barely, enough length in the ribbon cable connecting the control panel card to the base electronics to do this. Putting it back together was made difficult, because the upper plastic latch on the white plastic holder which secures the control panel circuit card to the cover against it's membrane switches required an enormous force to get the circuit card to latch. I thought I was going to break the card itself, but it did snap into place, barely. Good Luck, "I'm pullin for ya, we're all in this together" (Red-Green)
