Burned out diode in GE 168970 toaster oven

My GE 168970 (this could be Wal Mart's GE No.) Toaster Oven has a burned diode in the line going from the toast/grill switch to the elements. The other diode beside it is fine. I can't see the part number. I'd love to know why there is a diode there in the first place! But mostly, I'd like to find out what the part number is (i.e., INxxxxx) so I can replace it. Secondly, I'd like to know if I can use regular solder in a small appliance, or if I need special high-temperature solder.
Thanks,
-al

    I'm not sure physical size & amp / voltage rating are related well enough to swap them out without some specs.... does anyone have an idea if such a diode would have to be 15A+ rated?

Just clip the diode out (pay attention to the white band around the end) take the diode to radio shack and match it's size physically.Then put it back in using regular electrical solder (rosin core) put the band on the diode facing the same way it came out

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

If the oven doesn't work at all, make sure the circuit breaker or fuse is on at the electrical panel and test the electrical cord.
If the oven doesn't work on its toaster and oven functions, test the main switch . As needed, check the fuse.
If the toaster function doesn't turn off unless the door is open, test the solenoid, the switch and if necessary, the thermostat .

Location of the typical toaster oven's thermal fuse.
If the toaster oven stays on when the door is opened, check the main switch . If the oven doesn't heat, test the heating elements

One of my GE toaster oven's 2 top elements burned out


Hello. It is very difficult finding parts for and appliance over ten years old. I recommend that you shop a bit for a new toaster oven. They are much less costly than they used to be and work better. Plus they have a warranty. J.

On my GE 169127 Toaster Oven, R2 on the 125301 DC motor circuit board appears to have burned out, the motor is not running but will run when test hooked up to a 9 volt battery, Can this resistor or cicuit...


In my case I found a capacitor on the 9 volt motor control board blown open. It was rated for 250 v but no mfd rating. I called the 877-207-0923 option 4 number. The GE toaster is warrantyed for 2 years. I was able to exchange it for a newer model at the same price today. The new one checks out just dandy.

No broiler heat


its not a diode its a fuse a high temp fuse . there is a number on it with a "c" after it thats the temp it opens ..... you can jump it out with a small bare wire just to test your elements and thermostat . if the thermostat does not cycle this fuse will blow . do not leave it jumped out , this is just for testing . find one on line with the number . and high temp fuse ... good luck

I honestly believe that the burned element in my toaster oven is replaceable
like a burned out oven element or dryed element. I thought someone would
show me how to replace the element. That didn't happen. I am dubious
about the need for experts via a commitment to a specialists' plan.
