I have a very old GE Toast-R-Oven with CAT. NO. A8T93B. The top element recently gave out and although I have already purchased a replacement toaster oven, I would like to try to find a replacement element so I don't have to throw out this vintage appliance.

If both the top and bottom elements are working then you may need to re-position the rack closer to the top element for even toasting. If there is only one rack position available then you may need to flip the bread and toast it twice.
Oven has three modes: 1) oven mode cycles elements on and off to maintain a specific temp setting for up to 60 min. 2) toast should keep all elements on for a few min. 3) broil mode top elements only always on, up to 60 min. Make sure you have dials in correct position and use the toast timer.
Hello. It is very difficult finding parts for and appliance over ten years old. I recommend that you shop a bit for a new toaster oven. They are much less costly than they used to be and work better. Plus they have a warranty. J.
There are any number of resources on the Internet that may have this part, although it may be that the manufacturer of the oven made this a non-replaceable part.
In searching the WP website, they don't offer the element for aBT0BR0040 , so unlikely they ever provided one for the BT0BR0050 . Not surprising with these perceived high quality/low cost built appliances.
The only thing else I would suggest is to see if you can even get the old element out. If you can, then there might be a chance.
I honestly believe that the burned element in my toaster oven is replaceable
like a burned out oven element or dryed element. I thought someone would
show me how to replace the element. That didn't happen. I am dubious
about the need for experts via a commitment to a specialists' plan.
I have a Black & Decker CT0649 toaster oven. The timer switch on the toast control does not work and I took it out and took it apart. There is no way I can put is back together. Black and Decker will not sell me a new one! If you have a broken Black & Decker CTO649 I would be interested in purchasing the two timer switches in it before you through it out, $5.00/each. (Negotiable). I can be reached at email@example.com Thanks Al
I investigated further (took it apart again to satisfy my curiosity) and it appears that one of the top heating elements (the front one) is open (burnt out). I cannot see an easy way to replace it (contacts are spot welded) and I can't find a place to buy the element. If I could it probably won't be worth it since a new oven costs $25 at Target (B&D TR0490W). Too bad since the oven looks like new. I assume the upper elements burn out more frequently because heat rises from the lower elements and adds extra heat at the top.
I found that the heating element in the top front was burned off at the end. I removed the side cover and the ceramic insulator from the broken end. I then grabbed the broken end of the spring inside the glass tube and stretched it to where I could re-attach it to the connector. It now works after getting it back together. If you attempt this repair, UNPLUG THE OVEN FIRST! There is also a security screw at the bottom of the side cover.
