    Same exact thing, this looks like a defect to me. the coil seems to be bunched up at one end. Came from the store like that but it took me ome time to see what was wrong.

SOURCE: Top element not heating

I found that the heating element in the top front was burned off at the end. I removed the side cover and the ceramic insulator from the broken end. I then grabbed the broken end of the spring inside the glass tube and stretched it to where I could re-attach it to the connector. It now works after getting it back together.
If you attempt this repair, UNPLUG THE OVEN FIRST!
There is also a security screw at the bottom of the side cover.

SOURCE: 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.

My calphalon toaster oven will not toast top of bread? Why?


The upper heating element may have failed or the toasting function may not have been selected.

Black & Decker Toaster Oven - elements cycle on and off, which makes for a SLOW cook.


Oven has three modes: 1) oven mode cycles elements on and off to maintain a specific temp setting for up to 60 min. 2) toast should keep all elements on for a few min. 3) broil mode top elements only always on, up to 60 min. Make sure you have dials in correct position and use the toast timer.

I didn't get a manuel and the toast does not go


The Instruction Manual for your West Bend 78224 QuickServe Toaster is available here:

http://www.westbend.com/supportdata/L5670-QuikServeToaster-ALL.pdf

Uneven or ragged edges on your toast can catch on the toast rack and prevent it from siding through on to the serving tray. Trim off any ragged edges.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Toaster does not work!!!


I investigated further (took it apart again to satisfy my curiosity) and it appears that one of the top heating elements (the front one) is open (burnt out). I cannot see an easy way to replace it (contacts are spot welded) and I can't find a place to buy the element. If I could it probably won't be worth it since a new oven costs $25 at Target (B&D TR0490W). Too bad since the oven looks like new. I assume the upper elements burn out more frequently because heat rises from the lower elements and adds extra heat at the top.

Cuisinart toaster oven modele no.TOB-30BWC, serial no.50421.


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.
