An loose, intermittent power switch is the cause of that and it associated with lose wiring inside. Check it and replace lousy parts once you done that your unit will back to normal again. I hope my idea help you.
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).
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.
With mine, the toaster function stopped working. The light lit, but the relay did not click. This happened about a year ago, but then it started working again. Now that my waranty expired, it seems permanent.
The relay requires 12V, but I only measure 5V (no audible click). When I pulled the relay, the drive went up to 12V, so the coil is loading down the source. Not sure whether the problem is the coil or the source. It would be nice to find a schematic. When I put the relay across a car battery, I heard the click indicating that the relay is working.
