Question about Waring WCT708 4-Slice Toaster
The left side wont stay down to toast if you hold it down it will heat up,but only if you hold it down
The holder is a bimetallic strip that heats up and opens when it reaches a preset temperature based on the darkness setting. It should latch onto the toast loading mechanism when cold and then snap open when it reaches a certain temperature. The darkness setting knob adjusts the point at which it opens. Probably either the release mechanism is broken or bent or the setting knob is broken. You can disassemble it when unplugged by removing the screws on the bottom and prying off the toast loading knobs by placing a ruler wrapped in cloth against the housing and prying the knobs off with a large screwdriver carefully going back and forth from side to side. If the knobs break or won't go back on use a high temperature epoxy to reassemble. You have a good side to compare the bad side to. Look for differences from one side to the other as the toast loader lever goes down and as the darkness knob is rotated. You may just have something blocking the mechanism. After working on it, plug it in outside to a ground-fault protected outlet on a fireproof surface before attempting to use it.
