Button is broken

The wire for the toast release button may be loose or broken and may require replacement. A loose wire would not enable for the button to engage and release the toast.

Crumb tray is stuck

The crumb tray cannot be easily removed or reinserted in toaster

Debris in tray

Confirm that the tray is not overly full of crumbs. Blockage from crumbs and debris can cause the tray to become stuck.

Warped tray

Confirm the tracks still align with the shape of the toaster by gently removing and comparing it to the shape of the tracks. The tray can become warped due to excessive force.

Uneven toasting

Only one side of bread will toast

Damaged heating element

If only one side of the heater element gets hot, it can indicate that the heating element has become damaged and requires replacement. Unplug toaster and begin disassembly to locate the heater element inside.
