Toaster Oven Unresponsive (Farberware Model# FT032055

Toaster Oven worked fine at breakfast. Later in the day when I tried to turn it on it was completely dead for all functions. The power indicator light does not illuminate. It behaves as if there is an internal breaker or fuse which has tripped or blown. If this is the case, is there anyway to reset or replace.

    Thank you gentleman, but the first thing I checked was the outlet. After poking around inside (I know you're not suppose to do this) I determined that the timer switch was defective. I checked with the Farbarware manufacture and it doesn't look like parts are available. THatsahellofadeal!

It sounds to me like you might have tripped the GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) or tripped the breaker. Go get a small lamp, radio, or other small appliance to plug into the same outlet. If they don't work, you have no power. The outlet you are plugged into may not be GFCI, but an outlet upstream may be. Older GFCI's were very prone to false trips. Newer models have indicator lights that either glow green when the power is on or glow red when they are tripped. If this doesn't pan out, go check your breaker box. A tripped breaker will have some room to move the toggle toward the on position. If you find one like this, assuming the kitchen circuit isn't marked, flip to off, then back to on. If none of this works, go buy a new toaster oven (assuming it doesn't work in an outlet in another room).

I would check the cord or the plug before anything else. Plug another appliance into the outlet if it works try bending the male plugs on the cord slightly and try again. If this doesnt work call the man.

KCO223 toast function not working

Black & Decker toaster oven won't work


We've had many of these over the years...they seem to run along just fine, and then, one day, they quit. There is no fuse, but if it's the only thing plugged into that wall outlet, the one thing you might check is the circuit breaker on that line. To be sure, plug a lamp into the socket just to make sure you're getting electricity out of the wall.

Sorry to say, it may be time to purchase a new unit.

The Breville BOV650XL will not power on.


I had the same problem with my Breville B0V650XL. It worked fine at breakfast, then wouldn't turn on the next time I tried to use it. Judging by the comments on this site, this appears be a common problem with this and many other Breville products.

I fixed my toaster oven by replacing the thermal fuse assembly. This part costs $4.39 on ereplacementparts.com. It's a shame that an expensive toaster oven is rendered useless by the failure of such a cheap part.

Replacing the thermal fuse itself is very simple - you'll need a small wiring nut and a phillips screw driver. Unfortunately, getting to the part requires removing the oven cover and about 40 screws. A long, magentic scewdriver is essential for parts of this job. It took me about 1 hour to fix my oven - two minutes to replace the fuse and the rest of the time to remove and replace the oven cover.

My TRO651 Toaster-R-Oven does not work on any function and the blue light does not come on. I removed the right side cover and checked all the connections, then I cleaned the two sets of contacts with fine...


May not be too hard to fix. On the thermostat, you will see 5 wires coming from it. black and white on top (leave those alone), and on the bottom of the switch, there are red white and blue wires.
The white wire with the burnt connector(from use) is the problem. I had that switch apart, seen how it works. The 3 wires at the bottom (red, white, blue) is like a spst center off switch with white being the common center wire. Red is for oven, and blue is for toaster. After I rebuilt the switch the first time, and it happened again, I just bypassed switch by connecting that burnt bottom white connector, to the red timer wire connector. Oven will work, toaster will not. The oven turns off when timer runs out. Can also unplug or turn down thermostat all the way so it does not use much power when done using till timer runs out. If you have a spst(center off) switch, you can mount that too to the side panel if you find one rated for it. Just make sure the bottom white wire is used as the common center wire.
B&D will not sell that switch that is broken. I tried that before I took that switch apart. Glad I did take it apart as I am sure their new switch would have failed quickly as well.

I have an Oster toaster oven 6260. Looks very clean. My son got it at a garage sale. Day 1 worked fine. Day 2 plugged in doesn't go on no matter what knobs are turned. Tried different outlets. ...


It is possible that the controller switch or the trigger is absent so that the coils do not get the power from the mains circuit. it will be best if you can remove the mains plug and start tracing with a multimeter in continuity range( ohms) so that the connection is confirmed.
Once it is found that the switch does not switch on the power or has lost the connection even when it is put to the ON position then you can salvage the swittch from the older toaster to be fixed on.
If the coils have opened it can also be checked with the meter , specially since you have one top element working.
So using the inventory of the two toasters you can get one working.

Dead Delonghi toaster oven


Your timer switch burned out. The timer is manual and will tick even unplugged. Delonghi switches are available at The Gourmet Depot website or search "small appliance parts" for other places that sell the switches.

Toaster/oven


Could be the timer switch. They will suddenly stop working all at once or work intermittantly. Unless it's a Delonghi you may have a very hard time finding the part you need. If the switch is a DKJ/1-60 you will not find one but there is a Delonghi switch that you can use which you can find at www.thegourmetdepotco.com or www.applianceparts.com . The Delonghi part # is 5218104600 to replace a DKJ/1-60

Cuisinart Model TOB30BC Control Function


I have the same Cuisinart toaster with a different problem. In taking it apart to try and fix it, I may have gained insight in to fixing your problem. If your are willing to get under the hood of your toaster, you might try working with the electronic contacts that the function dial controls (it might void a warranty, but since you are out of warranty period no problem):

1. Unplug it from the wall

2. Remove the stainless steel case from around the toaster via the small screws around the toaster's bottom, sides, back and the black screws at the top just inside the door. This should allow you to see the electronics behind the dials.

3. Look at the function dial. by turning it you are turning a white plastic cam which presses down different combinations of metal electrical contacts to make the functions work. I suspect there is something wrong with the contacts that are pressed down to control the "BAKE" function. Turn the function dial to "BAKE". and Check the contacts that are pressed down by the cam.

4. Are the contacts free of crud or corrosion? If not, try cleaning them with a small brush or q-tip with CLR or some other rust remover or degreaser. After cleaning let them dry and plug in the toaster (once plugged in do not touch the electronics!) and try "BAKE" for a second. Turn it off and unplug it. If it works, reassemble. Otherwise try step 5.

5. Are all of the contacts pressed down by the cams completely in touching the metal on the plate like they are supposed to? If not, try bending them so they will touch when closed by the cam (but remain open when the cam is not pushing them). Are the contacts free of crud or corrosion? If not, try cleaning them with a small brush or q-tip with CLR or some other rust remover or degreaser. After cleaning let them dry and plug in the toaster (once plugged in do not touch the electronics!) and try "BAKE". If it works, unplug it and re-assemble.

6. If its still not working, email me (caseytronic@go.com). Maybe I can help. I am also willing to buy your toaster so I can fix mine.

Light and oven does not turn on.


:-) Same here, in the middle of cooking the toaster just died. O' well, i am a tech! i opened the unit and diagnosed the problem. the unit has a non-resettable high limit thermostat that blows open when reaching high temperature. the problem is that when it happened, the oven wasn't even hot and was only on for a bout five (5) minutes. From my experience, it is due to a design defect. from all i have seen so far, it doesn't seem that the company cares about its reputation or customers... what can you expect from the French?!
