Question about Krups FBC2 1600 Watts Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

2 Answers

My KRUPS FBC2 glass door hinge is broken. We use a pan to keep door in place when using it so it doesn't fall down. Any ideas on how to fix it will be appreciated. I'm pretty handy with things but I just haven't gotten the time to dismantle the unit to see what is up and also we use the oven all the time. Thanks!

I just fixed the problem with my Krups FBC-212. The door would not stay closed because the spring that keeps it in the closed position was broken. I ordered another from one of the small appliances parts sites (about $7 plus shipping) and that fixed it. I will describe how to do it and how to avoid the mistake that made it much harder and longer than it should have.
Remove the black screws at the back side, the ones holding the external black metal case to the silver chassis. There are 9 of these on my oven.
Also remove the 3 screws holding the left-side foot on.
Now you can probably slide the metal case (previously held on by the 9 screws) out from under the black metal front frame on the left side, thereby exposing the broken spring.
If you cannot get it out from under the lip of the front frame, you can take off the right-hand foot, and if that is not enough, you can remove THREE of the 4 black screws just inside the door holding the front frame to the chassis. Do NOT remove the lower left one next to where the flat door hinge piece goes into oven (which was my mistake) because that screw holds a critical black plastic piece in place.
By now you will be able to slide the black case that covers the sides and top backward and outward enough to expose the broken spring. It will be obvious how to attach the new one.

    Unfortunately I did not come across this until I had already removed the four front screws that hold the keypad, door and that pesky little piece of plastic at the hinge. How did you manage to hold that in place to get the screw back in?

    These instructions are excellent. My husband and I repaired the job in about an hour which included cleaning the toaster before dissemble. It was a bit hard to get the metal case off and we had to do all the steps including the last steps where you remove 3 of 4 black inside screws. The color of our toaster hardware was a little different but the instructions were clear enough to know no additional adjustments were needed. We recommend going straight through to removing those last 3 screws. We are not sure you could remove the housing out without doing that. It was a bit hard putting the shell back over and took some maneuvering and some temporary screws in some places. It is handy having an extra person to do this job. We actually did not buy a new spring. Instead my husband lengthened the spring with some pliers and then created a loop on the end with different pair of pliers. We could tell from the replacement part picture what we needed for that loop. We never found the broken detached piece that kept the door hinge working properly. Our door is a little difference not using an exact replacement part but we are optimistic our solution should work for some time. Thank you for very much to the gentleman who wrote such thorough directions to this problems. Krupps was of no help whatsoever. They just want to sell new toasters.

I assume that the glass hinge has come off or is broken.
For both the cases you can either remove off the old glass door and fix a new one with the therrmal properties.
the next option is to salvage on similar type from a service shop.
The other option is to stick along with a glass fixing adhesive a small rectangular glass to wedge into exactly over the broken glass and have the hinge centralised to make sure the alignment is correct to close the door properly.
If only the hinge has come off then use an extender to hinge to glue on with a glass fixing adhesive.

    I have the same issue with the door hinge; not the glass part falling out but rather the hinge mechanism not keeping the door shut tight. Any body figure out how to replace the hinge mechanism?

    The description is helpful. However, can anyone look at their correctly assembled toaster how and describe how to correctly re-position the door hinge on the left side? Mine accidentally came off the spring and fell into the space between the metal exterior metal cover and the inner oven panel. I was able to remove it, but I can't figure out how to put it back into place, as there are four possible positions for this odd-shaped metal hinge. Specifically, each side has a small hole, and one is larger than the other. The larger hole looks like it's at the top of a bird's beak, whereas the smaller one is at the center of a small circle at the other end. I need to know which side can be seen emerging from the slot at the left, as that's the one intended for inserting the glass door's metal catch-hinge. The other side is for the spring. If the part that protrudes from the slot is the small, circular end, does it lean toward the left or toward the right? Mine looks bent, but maybe it's supposed to be that way so it does't keep falling back into the slot. Thanks for your help.

  • warcraft demonhunter Apr 07, 2013

    As gjgary noted, if the bottom screw that holds the black plastic piece in place come off make sure you screw it back in place. Mine came loose when I put my oven back together after installing new bottome elements and the door didnt open and close properly. I had to remeove the top/side panel again and install the screw at the bottom left opening of the doorway to the black plastic piece.

Door Replacement


  1. To fix a cocked door, open the door and loosen the screws securing the inner panel. Hold the door at the top and twist it from side to side to seat it securely on its hinges.
  2. Partially tighten the door screws; do not overtighten screws on a porcelain door because the surface may chip.
  3. Test the seal by inserting a piece of paper between the seal and the top corners of the oven. The seal should tightly grip the paper.
  4. To replace cabinet-mounted springs, remove the storage drawer and the oven door. Unhook and replace the springs. Replace both springs even if only one is broken.
Hope that helps..........

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!

this is a link for the tray handle: http://www.krupsonlinestore.com/product_detail.asp?T1=KRW+SS%2D185298&MENU=parts&SELECT=toasterovens&SKW=PARTFBC2 for 1.99 from Krups, and http://www.smallappliance.com/product.asp?pid=2479&cur=USD&sid=18956&gid=18984&pfor=2805&shopBy=Category for 8.99 from smallappliance.com, referred by Krups.

Hope this is helpful.
