Question about Cuisinart TOB-40 Stainless Steel Custom Classic Toaster Oven Broiler
The lower front heating element has split so coils are exposed for about 2" - does this need to be replaced and if so, can we do that?

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.

SOURCE: broiler element
Its an on or off thing. No way to control the flow of electricity.
The elements are bigger than necessary to heat the unit quickly, the problem you have is a bad thing with food that burns easily but a good thing that makes these units come up to temp so quickly after turning on.
Unfortunately the only thing you can do is put more space between the element and your food or use aluminum foil (not suggested, its too close to the burners).
Eventually the contacks will fail (unless you are one of the lucky ones).

This is not a defect - it is just how the unit operates. You can set it to Broil, and the top element should not come on. Make sure the wire rack is turned upside down so that it curves inward and try one more time.

This problem is caused by screws being loose or dropping off a limiting bracket on the left side of the oven behind the left outer wall. This bracket allows the front glass panel to remain OPEN, as required for broiling.
To correct this, first check to see that the two black screws facing forward, behind the left side of the front glass panel are tight. If not, tighten firmly, but be careful not to overtighten. If this fails to correct the problem, then follow this procedure.
Purchase 2- #4 x 1/2" SS Phillips Pan Head sheet metal screws at your favorite hardware store. Cost About $1
