Wouldn't it be nice if those links from Hermantraj actually worked for your problem?

You should receive instructions upon receipt of your replacement door.

but, mostly this is plain intuition. Are you handy doing things like this?

You remove the base place and then screws holding the sides on. They should lift and pull away, but this may prove wrong, you need to use your intuition after removing the base plate, once the sides are off you will see the mechanism that retains the lower door hinge in place. This should be all you need to know to get the old one out and the new one in.

Do not remove the old door until you have the new door on hand and ready to replace the old one.

Once again, the instructions should come with the new door.

    Based on the model number you provided there wasn't any data sheets online.

    However, your controls are on the right side? Remove all the screws holding the left side into place and carefully pull the left side off, watching for any springs that may be attached to your left side door hinge. With the left side off, the door should pull away to the left. If you feel resistance and hear the sound of a spring, you will have to remove the right side also.

    Do all of this with power disconnected of course. With the right side off, you can use a dental pick, get at hardware store, or a long thin wire, like bailing wire and create a small hook on one end. You use that tool to take the spring off so its not stretched out and you have control of the spring which otherwise may snap away and go flying and sit somewhere waiting for you to find it.

    That's the long and short of it. Good for you this is only a toaster oven as a microwave door is really the dog's bone and includes a complex lockout switch on the hinge itself.

    Any questions on these instructions just ask using the comment box below.

It's kind of funny.. I looked at the instruction manual for your toaster oven and on the second or third page, it states that "There are no user repairable parts. In order to avoid any risk fire or electrocution, repairs may only be carried out by the qualified personnel of a KRUPS approved service center." So I find it strange that they would just send you a part and expect you to fix it yourself.. Anyways, I'm not sure how you would go about switching the door out. Would it be possible that you could take the handle off of the one they're sending you and put it on yours? Would that be any easier? It's hard to tell from the pictures how the handle is fastened on there. Usually, there's just some screws.

  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!

I have a fbc2 krups convection oven and the handle is broken. is there a replacement for this?


Molly, there appears to be some replacement parts available:

this is a link for the oven door and handle, which appear to come together: http://www.smallappliance.com/product.asp?pid=2478&cur=USD&sid=18956&gid=18984&pfor=2805&shopBy=Category this site is referenced as authorized by Krups, but Krups did not show this replacement part in their online store.
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.

My Krups FBC 1 toaster oven has a broken spring for the glass door.


Most of the time a hardware store will have a variety of springs or try home depot.
That's if you only don't want to wait for a manufactors spring.

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...


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.
