Question about GE 168947 Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

1 Answer

No broiler heat

Appears one of the diodes (I'm guessing it's a diode) connected to the top element is burned open. Probably should replace both.

Its not a diode its a fuse a high temp fuse . there is a number on it with a "c" after it thats the temp it opens ..... you can jump it out with a small bare wire just to test your elements and thermostat . if the thermostat does not cycle this fuse will blow . do not leave it jumped out , this is just for testing . find one on line with the number . and high temp fuse ... good luck

    I started smelling a "burning electronics" smell while using the oven after it hasgiven great service for over 5 years. It appears the smell is coming from what looks like a diode as I look through the slats on the right side of the oven. The "diode" appears enlarged, and is splitting the shrinkwrap.

Black & Decker Toaster Oven - elements cycle on and off, which makes for a SLOW cook.


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.

Just clip the diode out (pay attention to the white band around the end) take the diode to radio shack and match it's size physically.Then put it back in using regular electrical solder (rosin core) put the band on the diode facing the same way it came out

Cuisinart Toaster Oven Broiler Not working properly


This is not a defect - it is just how the unit operates. You can set it to Broil, and the top element should not come on. Make sure the wire rack is turned upside down so that it curves inward and try one more time.

Toaster does not work!!!


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.

Broiler element


Its an on or off thing. No way to control the flow of electricity.

The elements are bigger than necessary to heat the unit quickly, the problem you have is a bad thing with food that burns easily but a good thing that makes these units come up to temp so quickly after turning on.

Unfortunately the only thing you can do is put more space between the element and your food or use aluminum foil (not suggested, its too close to the burners).

Eventually the contacks will fail (unless you are one of the lucky ones).

Good Luck

Top element not heating


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.
