The bread won't stay down. The lever keeps coming back up


There is a bottom pan that gets clogged up with bits of bread, turn the toaster upside down and turn the set screw on the pan and open, flip the toaster back over and shake it, this will release a lot particles, keep at it until you removed as much as possible, this should the toaster for sometime.

Black & Decker Toaster, model 3550: Pressing the handle down to lower the bread and start the toasting doesn't lock in place anymore. The toaster will toast, but you have to hold the handle down so...


The fact that pressing down the lever fails, means the toaster contact will not function and can not be repaired. Since a two slice toaster is only $15 at Target, why bother fixing a toaster?

My ET-26 Hobart toaster will not cook 2 slices on either side unless both handles are pushed down !


That is strange, both sides are completely seperate electrically. Problems I have seen in the past are that some Hobart toasters are bun toasters and only toast one side of the bread. If that was the case you could look down into the toaster and see that only one side of each slot has a heating element. The other common problem is when someone changes a 220 volt to a 110 volt toaster by running the elements in series instead of paralle. at the terminal block. I am stumped on this one. I can't think of a fix for that. I am going to look at the wiring diagram again. If your question is still up, I will get back to you.

We have the four slice toaster. The arm on the left will no longer stay down. The side still toasts, but the arm will not lock in the down position.


try removing the lower claening plate and remove the bread crumbs and see if that makes it work again. Many people don't know there is a cleaning try on the toaster.

Lever on toaster will not stay down


For what it might cost to fix it buy a better brand of toaster for about 10% of the cost of this horrible brand.
You'll notice their new ones are "smart" toasters with NO LEVER. You push a button and the electronics takes care of the rest (and blow up quickly.)
$15 to $25 at Walmart.. instead of $100 to $200.

Russell Hobbs RH2T toaster bread won't stay down w/o hold handle


Hi, most new toaster have a selenoid that hold down the handle while toasting then release when done so a spring bring the toast up. Possible problem with the selenoid, the electronic circuit that controls it or the plate that the selenoid holds. When you lower the handle you close the contacts of the AC line inside the toaster so if the handle is raised there is no power.

Only toasts part of bread


The solution I got from the FixYa team was: "Get a new toaster." Which is how I ended up with 4 new toasters that don't work. I'm glad I didn't PAY for THAT answer.

Duraband 4 slice toaster manual model # TS-5221


if u need a manual for a toaster, then u r really in trouble...espcially for the amt of money u paid for it.
ok...
if u need instructions on how to use a toaster...here goes:
When:
A toaster is used to heat slices of bread, bagels, waffles, etc. to a hot, crispy consistency. Most toasters allow the user to set the toasting length to ensure the toasted bread comes out to temperature and crispiness to the user’s likes.
Where:
Toasters should be used on a flat, uncluttered surface near an electrical outlet but far from sinks, or running/standing water.
How:
To toast bread in a toaster, follow these instructions:

1. Place slices of toast, one each, in the slots on the top of the toaster.

2. Find the toast setting (a knob or lever) and adjust to the desired wellness of the toast. (Generally, there is a scale printed near the knob or lever ranging from light to dark toast).

3. Push down the toasting lever (moving the slices of bread down into the toaster between the heating elements.

4. When the toast is finished, the slices will “pop” up automatically.

5. Remove the toast from the toaster.
WARNING:
If the bread should get stuck inside the toaster, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING INSIDE THE TOASTER in attempt to dig it out. UNPLUG the toaster, turn it upside down and shake. If the toast does not fall out, use a plastic fork or knife to gently remove it from the toaster. Using metal utensils could damage the heating elements. NEVER stick anything in the toaster while it is plugged in.
*For further safety, it is recommended that the toaster be unplugged after each use.
I wish u luck and happy toasting.

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.
