Question about Cuisinart TOB-30 Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

Open Question

Unit has worked great for past six years, then wire to one of the elements melted at the tip and disconnected. I've opened the oven twice now to re-insert the tip of the wire into clip... it then works for 3-4 cycles before repeating the same problem. Upon touch, the high temperature insulation falls off wire. Is it possible to find and replace this wire?

Motor spins too slow to make juice.


After six years I'd buy a new juicer, assuming that you have used the current unit constantly over that time period.

I have a Brevelle 800 toaster oven that starts, but does not heat up. What part needs replacing?


There is a thermal fuse that breaks power to the heating elements if it gets too hot (somewhere around 173 C. I replaced mine with an identically rated fuse and it was good for a week until I tried to cook twice in succession. I then replaced the fuse with one that trips at around 190C and it's been good for 4 months now. The fuse costs about $6 on ebay (shipping included) and takes about an hour to replace.

What part needs to be replaced when the lcd and controls work but no heat?


Most likely suspects in this scenario would be the heating element or the temperature sensing rod. Not sure what the sensing rod setup on this oven looks like, but it is generally a few inches long, similar diameter to a charging cable for your phone, attached to the back wall of the oven and sticking out directly toward the oven door. If it goes bad, the oven may think it has reached the set temperature and turn off, but generally, it is the opposite (it allows the oven to get too hot). My guess is heating element, but the sensor generally costs a lot less to replace, though maybe not with a small toaster oven. Good luck!

Not heating, but light works? How do I fix this problem?


Your oven is obviously getting power if the light is on. If your heating elements are not getting hot you may have had a switch go bad, a wire come off it's terminal, or possibly a fuse that blew if your unit has one. There is really no way to know exactly where the problem is without taking the unit apart and visually inspecting it. If all the connections and switches look good, some electrical diagnosing is needed to see where the problem is. If you find any wires or switches that have any melted or burned plastic, you will need to repair the connection or replace the switch. If there is no obvious problem, you should have it looked at by a technician who can properly diagnose the unit.

How do we change the heating element. It was hit and broke but not in half so we need to remove it and add a new one.


I ordered bulbs online at http://www.smallappliance.com/ They come in a set of 6, you can't order less than that, I looked all over the place. Here is the part number: Krups SS-185303 Heating Element. You might want to find them on Amazon.com because by the time you order them from the above website, with shipping, it will come to more than you will pay total on Amazon and it's coming from the same place. Just in case Amazon doesn't have them in stock (you never know) I wanted to give you the source for the bulbs.
  1. Unplug unit and remove all trays and racks and crumb tray. (I took this time to do some much needed deep cleaning too.)
  2. First you have to remove the old bulb. I tried it the hard way by trying to pull it out - it's connected with screws on the left and right to the connector wires.
  3. I placed the oven on a big light colored towel and had a cup ready to place all my screws in. I also took pictures of it before I started taking it apart so I had something to reference when putting back together. I used a small sharp phillips head screw driver, DW40, household oil, a set of leather household gloves and patience.
  4. I first removed the cover of the whole oven by starting with the bottom legs (there's a screw under the rubber foot), the bottom, back and then removed screws on the face/door. Becareful of the door hinge. You might want to use some household oil or DW40 before you start to attempt this. My oven is 6 years old and we've used it everyday. There was some accumulated stuff around the screws.
  5. Carefully remove cover of oven and door/face. There's going to be a thick wire that will connect the interface circuit board to the internal boards so again, becareful when removing the face of the oven. The glass door may pop out of the hinge so, again, becareful.
  6. Make sure and observe how the door hinge and spring are placed and take a picture as you're going to have to put it back together.
  7. When I got to the connector of the bulbs I had to use, very carefully, some more household oil on the screw.l I held the ceramic socket with my leather utility gloves on and gently applied pressure to get the screw loose on both sides.
  8. Carefully place new bulb in hole/holders and gently screw the wires back on, start with the right side (facing the oven).
  9. Reassemble the door hinge if you took it off. and place the face on just for position.
  10. Attach the outer cover, back first and then bottom.
  11. Attach face and make sure hinge is working properly and you've tucked that wire back in.
  12. Attach legs.
  13. Remove anything else plugged into socket you use for the oven (just in case it blows the socket which has happened with some DIY repair in our house). Plug in oven and test it out.
  14. I hope this has helped you. If not, find some coupons for Bed Bath and Beyond and purchase a new one and sell your extra bulbs on ebay or craigslist. Good luck!

ELECTRONICS SEEM TO WORK (ON/OFF; TIMER; CLOCK; OPERATION SELECTIONS [TOAST, BAKE, ETC]) BUT ELEMENTS DO NOT LIGHT UP


check the resistance of the plug by turning the timer and temperature switch, if there's no resistance, open your unit and check the resistance of thermal fuse which is connected to line wire. it is look like resistor..if the thermal fuse is ok then check the resistance of heating element..

Top element not working all wires are connected


Very possible the element on top has a break some where but maybe small enough you cant see it or could be hiden. If you have access to a multimeter put it to ohms and with it unplugged from the outlet take the wires off the element and check the element itself if the multimeter reads OL the element is bad.

BOTTOM ELEMENT DOES NOT WORK


If the top element is working, then it is either the element, the wiring harness , or the control board.

Since both elements are controlled through the same temperature probe, then the temp. probe should be OK.

The heating element must be removed and tested using a multimeter.

The part is tested disconnecting wiring from element contacts, setting a multimeter to read impedance at Rx1, and reading Ohms on element contact.
If the circuit is open (no continuity and infinite Ohms value), then the element has blown and must be replaced.


If the element has continuity, test the wiring harness, then replace wiring harness or control board.

All the test must be done by a trained repairer, strictly observing all health and safety rules.

Regards.

Cuisinart Model TOB30BC Control Function


I have the same Cuisinart toaster with a different problem. In taking it apart to try and fix it, I may have gained insight in to fixing your problem. If your are willing to get under the hood of your toaster, you might try working with the electronic contacts that the function dial controls (it might void a warranty, but since you are out of warranty period no problem):

1. Unplug it from the wall

2. Remove the stainless steel case from around the toaster via the small screws around the toaster's bottom, sides, back and the black screws at the top just inside the door. This should allow you to see the electronics behind the dials.

3. Look at the function dial. by turning it you are turning a white plastic cam which presses down different combinations of metal electrical contacts to make the functions work. I suspect there is something wrong with the contacts that are pressed down to control the "BAKE" function. Turn the function dial to "BAKE". and Check the contacts that are pressed down by the cam.

4. Are the contacts free of crud or corrosion? If not, try cleaning them with a small brush or q-tip with CLR or some other rust remover or degreaser. After cleaning let them dry and plug in the toaster (once plugged in do not touch the electronics!) and try "BAKE" for a second. Turn it off and unplug it. If it works, reassemble. Otherwise try step 5.

5. Are all of the contacts pressed down by the cams completely in touching the metal on the plate like they are supposed to? If not, try bending them so they will touch when closed by the cam (but remain open when the cam is not pushing them). Are the contacts free of crud or corrosion? If not, try cleaning them with a small brush or q-tip with CLR or some other rust remover or degreaser. After cleaning let them dry and plug in the toaster (once plugged in do not touch the electronics!) and try "BAKE". If it works, unplug it and re-assemble.

6. If its still not working, email me (caseytronic@go.com). Maybe I can help. I am also willing to buy your toaster so I can fix mine.
