I think I broke the toaster...

There has to be a simple fix for this, because it was so easy to break....
We have a 4-slice toaster, 1 button controls 2 slices....
Last week I was cleaning out the crumbs and shook it pretty good over the sink, and now only one side will stay down to toast.... the other works if I hold it down but who wants to stand there for 3 minutes holding a toaster lever down?
DH looked at it quick but he was too tired.
Any thoughts?
