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,

We opened up our toaster and scraped some baked-on crumbs off the top of the electromagnet that controls the carriage catch. When we closed it back up, it worked again.

When the push down lever hits the bottom it pushes another little lever which makes contact with the positive and negative terminals. over time, these terminals get ever so slightly bent, especially if you start pushing the lever down hard. what you have to do is take the toaster apart, get to the positive and negative terminals and pinch back into shape with some pliers. you should understand once you look at it. Then put back together. if it doesn't work then it's likely a component has gone so, unless you have a multi-meter and a soldering iron I wouldn't suggest doing this.
Oh yeah, unplug it before you do anything.

SOURCE: toaster will not stay down
I found that the problem was caused by crumbs getting onto the electro-magnets that hold the toaster down, and onto the contacts that supply power to the magnets ant elements. Removing the cover was the trickiest part - my machine had screws with triangular holes in the heads that a normal screwdriver would not fit. I found, however, that these are the same screws as used in McDonalds Happy Meal toys, and you can get special drivers on ebay or from amazon for them. After that it was just a question of cleaning all the contact points inside the toaster (make sure the toaster is UNPLUGGED!!). 15 minute job.
