Tension spring on door


I found the answer (see below) posted on another web site. I followed the instructions and replaced the spring. I found, as the original poster had, that the new spring works better than the original and is much more sturdy. To the original instructions, I would add the following:

1) There are about 20 screws so have patience removing and replacing the screws.
2) Step 3, "Slide off the rear panel" requires further clarification as the panel will not slide off even with all screws removed. I had to turn the oven over, with the top of the oven sitting on the work table. I then used a screw driver to lift the two tabs that hold the back panel to the bottom panel. With the tabs lifted, the back panel will rotate away from the oven along the edge where back panel slides into the top panel. The back panel can then be slid out. I have included three photos that show this step.
3) Step 7, "Re-attach feet": Be sure to use the guides on the bottom of the oven to slide the foot assembly onto the oven. I had unsuccessfully tried to screw the feet onto the oven without using the guides.

Oringinal instructions for replacing the broken spring:

Just repaired this yesterday.

Got a spring from Lowes (Hillman Part # 543028 for about $4), it's larger than the original but seems much sturdier, original is really thin metal. Fit the space provided without problem.

Oddly, end result was a more 'giving' spring action, prefer it to original, which loved to snap shut unless door was 100% opened (ie fully 90 degree open).

This is for BOV800XL:
1. Remove all rear screws
2. Remove feet entirely
3. Slide off rear panel
4. I was not able to remove top housing - but I was able to gently pry sides open just enough to thread the new spring with a little ingenuity and effort. Watch out for sharp metal edges everywhere.
5. Slide back in (remember that top edge goes under the top edge/lip)
6. Put all screws back in
7. Re-attach feet

Good luck!

The door spring came off of hamilton beach 31100


The door of the Hamilton Beach Model 03008 or similar toaster oven does not stay closed when the door return spring or the hook it connects to breaks. The repair is very simple and takes just a few minutes!
The door spring is about 1 inch long and connects to a small clip on the inside of the left side panel of the unit. To see the small clip and the door spring, you simply remove the left side panel of the toaster oven which is done by removing just one screw.
The mounting clip on the side panel for the door return spring is located about half way up the side panel near its front edge.
The other end of the spring (its bottom end) connects to a metal hook. If the spring is not connected on its bottom end then the wire hook is broken. This is a simple repair that only requires a few inches of metal wire.
The other end of the metal hook (its bottom end) is connected to the bottom of the door hinge where it inserts into a small hole in the left side mounting hinge of the door.
When the steel hook breaks on either end then the spring cannot function, so the door does not stay closed.
To fix this problem, you simply get a piece of steel wire that is about 1/16 inch thick and a few inches long.
Bend the wire to make a hook at one end that the spring will connect to.
Then insert the other end of the wire into the small hole on the left side mounting hinge of the door. Then bend the wire on the inside of the hole to make a U or hook so the wire stays mounted in the hole of the door hinge.
Then adjust the position of the bend on the other end of the metal wire so the spring will have good tension when it is attached to the hook and to the clip on the side panel.
To do this you make the U shaped bend on this end of the wire to be about 1/2 inch from the end of the open end of the spring when the top end of the spring is attached to the mounting clip on the side panel.
To attach the spring to the wire hook, first remove the spring from the mounting clip. Then hook the spring onto the hook (bend) you made at the top end of the wire, then just stretch the spring to connect it to the mounting clip. The door will now stay closed.

We have a Krups FBC4 1600 Watts Toaster Oven. The door hinge seems to have disconnected from some kind of spring mechanism within the left wall, is there any way to take apart/repair it or have it...


Here is a Krups website address that helps you locate service by state or contact the Krups company.

My Krups FBC 1 toaster oven has a broken spring for the glass door.


Most of the time a hardware store will have a variety of springs or try home depot.
That's if you only don't want to wait for a manufactors spring.

Door spring broke on Cruisinart CTO 350 series Toaster Oven


I had same problem with my cuisinar 350 series broken door spring. After disassembly found a broken extension spring measuring about 3/16 dia.,by 6.5 inches long.Spring was broken about a third down. I lifted ,or bended a loop and a halve up from each broken section and joined the two sections together. lifting each loop of the spring is tricky at first, requires a small screwdriver to be inserted between loop to be lifted and then gently bent the loop with needlenose pliers.
Not knowing how to disassemble the unit I had a hard time assembling the unit back.
I would start by taking off the screws holding the front black backlite first, then the main cover.
The main stainless steel cover does not have to be removed completely, by just gently unbending
the cover I was able to access the spring for removal.
Lots of luck

Position of part for TRO910W


take the cover off by removing 6 screws around the back and 7 on the bottom (2 of these are safety screws but can be removed by a small flathead screwdriver); once you romove the wrap-around "hull" or cover you can see the spring on the left side of the oven from the frontal view.; the door stop is sort of a L shaped piece which you insert from the inside of the opening on the frame & thru the little hole on the left side of the door; once you do this stretch the spring and attach to the hole into hole you see on the middle of the L shaped piece.

Spring in door


I have the same problem. The end broke off. I heated the end with a torch and bent a new loop (cooled it in cold water). I hope it will work for a while. I could find a replacement on the internet. To get to the spring, just remove the left side panel (3 screws)
