Question about Toaster Ovens
I took off the elements and tested and they are fine. It doesn't heat though. What it could be ? Thermo ? The light turns on as if heating, the fan works but none of bake or broil heats. Got the elements out, made the test for continuity with a multimeter and it's OK, between 9 and 11.
Look for the thermal cutoff. Either it looks like a resister or it looks like circular thing. Test it for continuity

Testimonial: "I've found a rectangular metal piece in the thermo that is cracked, like it burnt, as a resistance. Wondering if I could improvise cutting some piece of metal to replace it. Any suggestions ?"

Actually what they were meaning to say is that you can replace the resistance, but you will have to source it yourself since they don't sell spare parts because it's not profitable: this cheaply made chinese manufactured oven costs less than $100 new, the resistance costs about $15 and the labor to install it (almost all the customers aren't capable of fixing it themselves) another $100 which would make it cheaper to buy new so there aren't enough customer for spare parts to make it profitable to sell them.
If you still want to replace the resistance yourself the only source for another one is to extract it from a defective unit that you will have to find, either online or at shops that sell defective equipment.

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.

I trashed the toaster oven. Apparently even if you know how to fix something you can't get the parts. If you need to take apart an appliance to fix it, you can rest assured you cannot get a replacement part. This is our throw away society.

There is no fuse. This is not an easy repair. I replaced mine which had an open winding. HB tried to make this unit so it could NOT be repaired, but of course it can be if you want to spend the time. The motor is part of a metal duct assy which also holds the rotisserie motor. It is RIVETED to the interior wall of the oven. The fan motor is a DUAL shaft C-Frame shaded pole 120 VAC ~ 3000 RPM ~ .5 amp motor which is not very common. The thermo on all these units is also inaccurate as the "sensor" is simply a metal plate screwed to the top right area of the oven interior. When I replaced my fan I also put in a new REAL oven thermo with a 12" sensing bulb which I mounted inside the oven as it should be. It took some searching to find these two parts. I have all the instructions and can post images if you want to tackle this. I did because the oven is large and the replacement model (31100 for $69 at Wal-Mart) has 1.5" less height and it uses the SAME parts with the same design flaw for the thermo. The retail cost on the parts for this job are ~$160, but I got mine for $15 total. I paid $48 for this oven years ago at Sams.
