I have a fairly new Cuisinart 2 slicer that the push down button would release

I took it apart. Toasters aren't really designed to be taken apart tho.
Rather than some screws, they use tabs that you need to bend to get
to the guts. I fiddled around with it, I forgot if I did any major tweaking,
but I put it back together and it worked.
You may have too much on your hands to want to mess with it. Mine only
cost $29 or so. Sometimes...not often, taking things apart and putting
them back together actually fixes the problem...somehow.
The bummer is...you get used to the style, color, design of your toaster, and when
it breaks...you can never find that same model which broke, which you were so happy with.
Maybe on eBay.
