Remove the legs, remove screws on the back. There is a black piece of plastic that prevents the door hinge from running into a white piece of ceramic that holds the burner element. To prevent the hinge from hitting the white piece, we set a screw in wall to hold the wire spring at a lower point (closer to the feet). We had a piece of plastic to cover the the middle threads of the screw so that the spring wasn't rubbing the threads.

Remove the black outer case; you can repair the connection to the spring this way. The spring is on the lower left side. I found it difficult to completely remove the case, but instead just pry off the left side sufficient to work on it. Unscrew all of the small black screws and also remove the anti-skid pads and the silver screws under those.

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..........

The door spring came off of hamilton beach 31100


The door of the Hamilton Beach Model 03008 or similar toaster oven does not stay closed when the door return spring or the hook it connects to breaks. The repair is very simple and takes just a few minutes!
The door spring is about 1 inch long and connects to a small clip on the inside of the left side panel of the unit. To see the small clip and the door spring, you simply remove the left side panel of the toaster oven which is done by removing just one screw.
The mounting clip on the side panel for the door return spring is located about half way up the side panel near its front edge.
The other end of the spring (its bottom end) connects to a metal hook. If the spring is not connected on its bottom end then the wire hook is broken. This is a simple repair that only requires a few inches of metal wire.
The other end of the metal hook (its bottom end) is connected to the bottom of the door hinge where it inserts into a small hole in the left side mounting hinge of the door.
When the steel hook breaks on either end then the spring cannot function, so the door does not stay closed.
To fix this problem, you simply get a piece of steel wire that is about 1/16 inch thick and a few inches long.
Bend the wire to make a hook at one end that the spring will connect to.
Then insert the other end of the wire into the small hole on the left side mounting hinge of the door. Then bend the wire on the inside of the hole to make a U or hook so the wire stays mounted in the hole of the door hinge.
Then adjust the position of the bend on the other end of the metal wire so the spring will have good tension when it is attached to the hook and to the clip on the side panel.
To do this you make the U shaped bend on this end of the wire to be about 1/2 inch from the end of the open end of the spring when the top end of the spring is attached to the mounting clip on the side panel.
To attach the spring to the wire hook, first remove the spring from the mounting clip. Then hook the spring onto the hook (bend) you made at the top end of the wire, then just stretch the spring to connect it to the mounting clip. The door will now stay closed.

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.

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.

How do you change the top heating element on the krups fbc 412?


Based on the markings on the sockets, there are 400W ones in the center and 600W ones on the front and back. That adds up to 1600W on each, the advertised total. So be sure you have the correct replacement. After removing the cover you will see that each one has spring connectors.
