I just opened one with the same problem. The bi-metal switch / thermostat was completely burned out and melted into a small lump of metal. Unless you can get a replacement for that it might be the cheapest to go to a store and buy one new for under $80.

Does timer operate? In other words, if you set it on a time will it countdown and ding the bell? If so , then it is almost certainly the thermo (very flaky on this model) or your thermal overload (one time safety that acts like a fuse and looks like a diode) which is inside and can only be replaced by someone familiar with electric repair. I have had one of these for 2 years and the thermo never has worked correctly and after a few months the little plastic cam (that the door lever rides on that holds door closed and in partly open position) wears a groove and won't keep the door closed. I lost my receipt so I am going to see if HB will send me a new cam and thermo (although I think they are all incorrect as far as temp accuracy) without charging. If you got this at Wal-Mart or Sam's and have the receipt they will take it back for credit or exchange. No time limit at Sam's.

What can I do as my oven stopped working yesterday whilst heating up .Both hotplates work. No lights coming on oven switch. No fan working. Help please


If the oven is not working, the fan is not working, and the light is not working, it suggests that the oven switch is faulty as that is the only common part for all 3 things. It might be a broken wire or a faulty switch. You will need to dismantle the oven to gain access to the switch and then use a multimeter to test it. if you do not know how to do this, then get an electrician or oven repair company to help, as there are dangerous voltages inside an oven than can give you a shock or kill you.

How can I troubleshoot my kitchenAid toaster oven? The timer works but the light will not go on, and it will not heat up on any setting.


The heating element went bad. The manufacturer makes it impossible to open the unit and doesn't sell parts - the lawyers told them it is too risky to let consumers repair toaster ovens.

Sorry.

How to change the lower element on a delonghi AD 699 toaster oven?


Hello,

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

  • Hope this work ..........

    This toaster oven gets extremely hot


    Definitely return it. It has a partial internal short which is appying full power to only part of the heating element causing th excessive heat. No properly working appliance should make the outlet hot.

    Slow to heat Haier Convection Oven


    you are correct . it is the convection . the fan blows the air around and away from the elements ,when that is happening the elements can never get hot enough to glow , as the oven gets hotter and at some point the air is so hot even with it blowing the elements will start to get red ... this is good because todays elements are thin and cheep and melt easy so the fan keeps the heat away from them and the elements last longer ...... if this answer helped please rate it a 3 or 4 stars .this high rate will help keep me in the paid answer department ... thank you

    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.
