Question about Black & Decker CTO650 1500 Watts Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking
My Toaster Oven still toasts but the oven function no longer works. It does not heat up nor does the blue indicator lamp light. I've checked all knobs to make sure they are set to "oven". I was able to get inside the right-hand side, but no obvious non-functioning items (i.e. loose wires, broken wires, etc). I called customer service but they only recommended a new oven or a repair center. I have not tried yet but I can follow the wires logically and with a continuity tester to try to determine the faulty item. Any help would be appreciated (e.g. machine idiosyncracies, where to get parts, etc.) Thanks, merl
Never buy black & decker they don't supply parts they want you to rebuy the same junk over & over. its a shame this is what american companies have become buy japanese they last longer and make replacement parts.(I'm not unpatriotic just an informed consumer).

I did the same repair as merlin. Unplug from wall.. take the side panel off. Take knob off the temp. control. Loosen 4 wires that go into the module. (make a note of which wires go where)... take 2 screws out from the front of unit. The module can now be removed. use a small flat balde to open the bottom end.. slowly. .. a small ball bearing may come out (it's needed). Then you will see the contact arms that depress in to a small spring.. if contact is not being made. you need to file the housing that is rubbing on the one contact bar.. I also had to take it out and bend it a little to make it contact correctly.. once you have both arms depressing normally.. you can put back and test.. work good for me.. thanks merlin

Hello, I had the same problem on the CTO 650C. Toasting but no oven. It turned out that the housing of the temperature selection dial had melted slightly during use. There was a small obstruction inside the plastic housing preventing one of the spring loaded contacts from making a strong connection (possibly some plastic from the melting covered the contact). I simply removed the build-up and it is working so far.

This suggestion worked for us.

Hi. I have a B&D toaster with a timer which works slightly different than yours, but probably close enough for this possible solution. My oven stopped working recently, but the toaster function worked normally much like your problem. What I did to get the oven working again was to first unplug the toaster power cable from the wall outlet, then remove the right side cover as you mentioned, get a small piece of sandpaper with fine grit and carefully sand between the electrical contacts that open and close when a knob or button is pushed. You'll have to try turning a knob and/or pushing a button while looking for contacts that come together and spread apart. On the other hand, these same contacts may be greasy as well. Take a Q-tip , trim it down with some scissors so that it can fit between the cantacts without bending them, dip it in alcohol and clean between the contacts. Again be very careful not to bend the contacts out of place. These contacts are in a tight space, so be patient and set aside an hour or so to perform this. This might get the oven function working again and save you the price of a new toaster. Good luck, tuneman
