Question about Oster 4877 / 4878 / 6209 Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

Oster microwave with convection/grill

I can't get it to cook. It goes for a couple of seconds, beeps like crazy and stops. It's brand new, haven't had the thing two hours. Bought it at Target, so they're no help. It's sitting on a flat balanced surface. The plug is secure. What am I doing wrong? thanx, Melinda

    Same microwave oven. Purchased it June, 07 from Target. Starting in September it tripped the breakers, I moved it to a different counter. It tripped breakers again in October and every so often trips them. I of course don't have the receipt. Target won't help and Oster won't help without the receipt. It's also sparked a few times while it's heating items. The only thing Target would do is take a incident report because of safety issues. Did that in 1st of December, 07, but never heard back. Called again 1st week of January, 08 they had no record of me calling. It's very frustrating... No one wants to take accountablity!

    Desperately need a manual for Oster Convection Microwave Model OTM1101VBS. Help - we have no idea how it works!

    My microwave/ Grill just gave out on me too. I too bought it for the Oster name which used to mean something and payed more for it. I guess in the end I payed alot more for it.Luckily mine is about 2 years old compared to the few months of some of the people here. I went to use it the other night and opened the door and it it was making a humming noise, the lights went dim and the turntable was turning while I had the door open. That was freaky so I unplugged it and retryed the light was normal and nothing was "on" other than that. The next morning it was acting up again, so unplugged and replugged it in, this time it didn't fix the problem. It has been about a week and I am freaked out to use it. I still do if I have to, but I am freaked out that I am getting harmful micro waves slung at me every time I open it. If I could say one thing, do not buy an Oster microwave for the name or for any other reason, you will be sorry. Is there no dignity in workmanship anymore?

I just had the exact same problem above...
I purchased the microwave from target about 5 mos. ago payed near 200 for it..half of the time the couldnt get funtions to work well,then had heating problems until last week it nearly almost burned my kitchen up..good thing I was here.I just spent one hour at target,and of course no help..reffered me to a number,but I already know where that s going to go! Im not blaming target,but when there is a defect in the product and you can clearly see and smell that it is burnt up then, they should or the manuf. should simply replace it.It wouldnt have mattered if I had the dang receipt anyway,after 90 days in target,your screwed!
I like walmart much better,and I guess I have to go and pay another 125.00 or something for a much less complicated one.
thanks for the info above Laura florida

I just bought one to and have had no problems. Did you insert a time after it finished the preheating stage.

Oven does not work the element does not heat up

Consider replacing the element. See if Oster has a website where you can check. Also, here is an address that has a list of sites that sell oven parts and maybe one of them has the right element.

Microwave goes on but does not heat

  • Magnetron is fried. Resistance between the magnetron terminals should be less than 3 ohms. Resistance from the magnetron terminal to ground should be infinite.
  • Fried HV capacitor. Use your ohm meter to test it.
  • Fried control board. If power is going to the board but not going off to the other components, the board is bad and needs to either be replaced or track down the bad connection (GE/Hotpoints).
  • HV Rectifier is shorted or open. Test forward and reverse bias with a megohmmeter. If continuity in both directions, rectifier is shorted, replace. If no continuity in either direction, rectifier is open, replace.

Convection Oven OSTER 6248 err on the screen

I'm afraid you are screwed, because this is the usual failure scenario for this model. Mine just failed the same way, and it's only a couple of years old. I would avoid buying anything Oster in the future, because it's all made in China nowadays. Check out the reviews on this model, and on the 6058, on Amazon. Some people are reporting that the new model is a fire hazard as well.
If there are any good models coming from any other part of the world, I'd be interested in getting one. If you have any companies making such things in South America I'd definitely recommend supporting your local economy. The USA does not make toaster ovens anymore at all, apparently.
