Question about Black & Decker CTO649 Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

Toster Timer Switch Broke

About a month after the warrantee expired, the timer switch for toasting broke. It would not complete the circuit. I called Black and Decker and they indicated that they will not sell internal parts. They told me to throw it out and purchase a new toaster oven through them.

I took the switch apart that there is no way it will go back together. It is like the internal s of a spring loaded watch!

The switch model number is a DKJ/1-6 form the HANGZHOU WESTLAKE(XIHU)Time Switch Factory. I had no luck finding a replacement switch. I even sent the factory two e-mails they never responded.

Do you know where I can get this switch?

I had the same problem with the same exact switch DKJ/1-60. This part cannot be found anywhere but the factory and you'll have to buy 5,000 if you want one. There is another switch made for Delonghi that will work but it only has timer for toast. No 60 min. timer. The part # is 5218104600. This switch works the same way as the original but you will only have about a 13 minute timer. There is another one that has a 120 min. timer. The part # is 5218101800 for Delonghi. These switches look the same as the DKJ/1-60 but you may need to use parts from your old switch to mount these switches. Another solution to the problem is to replace the bad switch with a single pole single throw toggle switch that will handle 20 amp's on 120 volts AC. You will no longer have a timer and you will have to turn the oven on and off manually but at least you will be able to use the appliance. The above switch can be purchased at Gourmet Depot website for $10.98.

Dave, maybe you can help. The top knob on mine is what's broken,. That's the one that lets you select "toast" and also controls the temperate. 0-450 deg. Is there one that will work for this???

Tip

Timer Switch Failures


Many toaster ovens use a timer switch to operate the ovens. Many of them use very poorly made Chinese timer switches that make a very poor electrical contact internally causing them to get very hot and in cases will melt connector insulation and also cause wall plugs to get very hot. One in particular is part # DKJ/1-60 which is used in Black and Decker and other manufacturers ovens. Replacement switches are about impossible to find and B&D will be of no help finding one. If your timer switch has only 2 contact tab's on it, you can use this tip to repair your oven. If it has more that 2 contacts, you will need to find a replacement switch or ask a qualified technician about other switches that can be used.
A safe and easy way to fix the appliance is to replace the bad timer switch with a single pole single throw toggle switch. Make sure to get one rated for 20 amp's at 120 volts AC. You will no longer have a timer and you will need to turn the oven on and off manually, but at least you will be able to use the oven and not have to worry about a faulty timer switch overheating! The timers are for convienience only and you have to turn the OVEN feature on and off manually anyway so all you're losing is the timer convienience for toast or whatever and the toggle switches are much safer too. The switches can be purchased at any electrical parts store or at many hardware stores for under $10. A cheap and safe solution to the problem!
If you feel the need for a timer and want to take your chances with a timer switch, there are a couple switches that you can use to replace the DKJ/1-60 switches. They are made for Delonghi toaster ovens and are readily available. One part # is 5218104600. This switch will work the same as the original but it only has about a 15 minute toast timer. Turn counterCW for OVEN ON like the original switch. You may need to use some mounting parts from the old switch depending on your particular oven. Another switch which has a 120 minute timer is part # 5218101800 but may be a little harder to find. Both of these look the same as the DKJ/1-60 and are about the same size with the bell on the back of the switch.

The blue light does not go on and the heating element does not wo


The problem is most likely the timer switch. They are very poorly made and tend to overheat causing eventual failure. B&D will be of no help and you will not be able to find the original switch. There is a switch made for Delonghi ovens that will work if you need a timer. The part # is 5218104600 and can be purchased for $10.98 at the Gourmet Depot website. This switch has a toast timer only if you turn it clockwise and turn counterCW for oven ON. Timer is only about 13 minutes. There is another switch that has a 120 minute timer. It looks the same and the part # is Delonghi 5218101800. May be harder to find. Another solution and a much cheaper one is to replace the broken switch with a single pole single throw toggle switch rated for 20 amp's at 120 volts. You will need to turn the oven on and off manually and you will no longer have a timer but at least you will be able to use your oven!

Your problem is very likely the timer switch. They are very poorly made and they have a high failure rate. B&D should have a recall on these switches. It's likely a DKJ/1-60 timer switch. They make a very poor electrical contact which causes the switch and possibly the wall plug to overheat. Mine melted the wire insulation at the switch and failed. These switches are impossible to find fortunately because they are all subject to the same failure. There are a couple timer switches made for Delonghi ovens that will work in the B&D and other ovens that use the DKJ/1-60 timer switch. One is part # 5218104600 which works the same as the B&D switch but it only has about a 13 minute toast timer. Turn it counterCW to turn the oven on. There is another switch with a 120 minute timer which is part # 5218101800 but may be harder to find. The 13 min timer switch can be purchased for $10.98 at Gourmet Depot website. Another solution is to replace the bad switch with a single pole single throw toggle switch rated for 20 amp's at 120 volts AC. You will no longer have a timer and you will need to turn the oven on and off manually but at least you will be able to use the oven and the switches are under $10 and much safer than timer switches.

I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service. They would be able to send you a replacement timer knob at no cost. You may simply pull off the broken timer knob, and the new knob will snap in with ease.

Their toll free telephone number is 1800-541-6390.

Delonghi Toaster Oven Color Select Dial does not turn off


This sounds like a defective timer switch that is not turning the oven off at the end of the time selected. You will need to replace the timer switch. The switches are available but unless you're able to do this kind of work you will need to take it to a repair shop. If you want to DIY you can find the switch at www.thegourmetdepotco.com or www.applianceparts.com. If you don't have a part # you will need the make and model # to get the correct switch.

Cuisinart toaster oven modele no.TOB-30BWC, serial no.50421.


The contacts for these toasters fail. The plasic cam that depresses the contacts also can melt. The design is poor and no replacement parts are available. When selecting a setting, if the selection is not exactly perfect, the contacts arc and eventually fail. Unless cuisinart changes the selection cam to a solid state or relay, this failure will continue to happen during normal use. If your unit works properly do not switch the function setting while heating, this will cause the contacts to arc and erode the contact surface. This posting is applicable to the TOB-30BC, TOB-30BCC and probably all TOB-30XXX models.
