Toaster lever won't stay down ¶
No matter how many times you push the lever down, it just won't stay down.
Power Source ¶
Confirm that the toaster is plugged into a working outlet.
Lever obstruction ¶
With frequent use, any toaster will eventually have a build up of crumbs and other debris that may be preventing the lever from latching into place.
Broken lever ¶
After confirming that the toaster is being powered and the lever is not obstructed, it may turn out that the lever itself is broken and requires replacement.
External damage ¶
If the toaster was dropped or damaged in some way the outside cover or chassis can be replaced.
Replacing the chassis ¶
Finding a replacement chassis, you can remove the defective chassis and replace it with a working one.
Toaster won't turn on ¶
Sometimes toaster's wont work even when plugged in to a power outlet. Common problems can be the blame.
Reset outlet ¶
Outlets are commonly turned off by accident and resetting an outlet can save a lot of time and effort if that is the issue.
Faulty power cord ¶
With frequent use, cords can eventually wear down and lose connection, resulting in no power. Replacing a faulty cord is cheap and easy.
Inconsistent Heat ¶
When toast is not cooking enough, or over cooking you will want to reset the temperature control.
Recalibrate thermostat ¶
Finding the thermostat calibration device inside the toaster, you can slightly turn or slide in order to change heat settings.
Toaster lever fails to release ¶

Latch maintenance ¶
