I have a Black & Decker CT0649 toaster oven. The timer switch on the toast control does not work and I took it out and took it apart. There is no way I can put is back together. Black and Decker will not sell me a new one! If you have a broken Black & Decker CTO649 I would be interested in purchasing the two timer switches in it before you through it out, $5.00/each. (Negotiable). I can be reached at email@example.com Thanks Al

Does the lower element come on? If not check the element, it may be burned out or one of the spade ends may have broken off. If its OK, check for 120Vac or 250Vac as the case may be, at the elements terminals.
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.
That may sound like a stupid question, but is it plugged in?
Have you tried to plug in the toaster on a different power outlet?
If there is a ground fault switch where the toaster is plugged in (that's those outlets which have 2 buttons on the front, one labeld "Test" the other usually labeled "Reset") unplug the toaster and push the "Reset" button and try the toaster again. To test, if the power outlet, were the toaster is usually plugged in, is working, try a hair dryer or any other device on that outlet.
Its most likely cheaper to replace the whole toaster than to replace the heating elements, for about 40 $ since that's the price of your toaster on some websites.
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.
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.
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.
