I have a Krups 2-slice toaster like this one:
I’m trying to disassemble it to have a look at the circuit board to
see if it can be modified or adjusted to make darker toast.
The front handle/lever is used for raising or lowering the toast.
Does anyone know how to remove it? It doesn’t seem obvious and I’d
like to avoid breaking it.
I doubt you will find someone with specific experience taking apart
that particular toaster in this group. Often plastic levels and knobs
that attach to metal mechanical parts are a slip on fit. Try pulling
while wiggling it a bit. It's up to you to judge when you are about
to beak it instead of remove it. Most small appliances are not really
intended to be repaired so they are not manufactured for easy

bobby pin to retract a spring clip holding a lever handle, but I don't
see one on this. Sometimes I only find out how things are assembled
after I break them.
Yes, I can see a small circuit board with a resistor and a capacitor
mounted inside in the lower front section. Despite all the
sophistication of the newer models, I think that the old toasters
