Question about KitchenAid KCO1005OB 1400 Watts Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking
The toaster oven just stopped working; no lights are on, no heat.
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.

:-) 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?!

Toaster switch does not stay down. I have to hold the switch down to get toast. The heating element works fine as does the oven. Can we fix the switch? Or, do you know someone to whom we can send it for repair? Thanks!

The overload switch is located above the theromostat.To check it put a jumper across the switch and plug the unit in. If the switch is bad you will now see the red light on and the oven will work. Take the switch off and gently pry the 4 posts back. Remove the pin, gently put it in a vise and put a drop of solder on top of the metal cap. Put the switch back togther, install it and you should be back in operation.
