Tip & How-To about Toastmaster TLWTOB6 Lightwave Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

How I Fixed A Break

My TLWTOB6 Salton Toastmaster Lightwave broke, and I fixed it. It had still turned on the display OK and pretended to run, but neither the top nor the bottom lamps would turn on. Also, it made no clunk sound that it would usually do when turning on the lamps.
I took it apart (keep careful track of which screws go where, and there are lots of sliding tabs to put pieces together). I examined the bottom of the circuit board holding the big electronics, and saw discoloration; evidence of heat damage. I wiggled a wire near by, and its quick connect tab came off the circuit board; it hadn't been soldered right at the factory. So, I resoldered it (hope my job was done better), and put it all back together, breaking and resoldering a data cable in the process -_-
So, it works fine now, and hopefully will last a while. By the way, the web address in the manual, www.toastmaster.com, doesn't work any more, and the URL is not associated with any IP address right now. Also, there appears to be no fuse inside the toaster oven.

Just purchased a new toastmaster COV760B and it started smoking a lot when I plugged it in to pre-heat. Is this just the "newness" burning off or is this abnormal? Just want to make sure I don't have a fire hazard!


Smoking is just the oils from the manufacturing process burning off! If it smokes longer then fifteen minutes at first start up you may need to replace thermostat! but I think you will be ok!
Please rate my response !

I have same problem Took whole unit apart found upper bulb is connected with wire that goes through out. You hve to physically take bulb out through side without electronic panel wire is connected on panel sid with actual plug. but ended up cutting wire other side. Bulb is not like regular bulb you will have to hard wire one side of it. bulb is unseperable from wire. Still looking for replacement bulb. I sure miss my toaster I believe it will probably be chaper for me to buy new toaster vs replace bulb. The bulb is nothing like I have seen before.
