Question about Hamilton Beach 31197 120 Watts Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking
I just opened one with the same problem. The bi-metal switch / thermostat was completely burned out and melted into a small lump of metal. Unless you can get a replacement for that it might be the cheapest to go to a store and buy one new for under $80.

Does timer operate? In other words, if you set it on a time will it countdown and ding the bell? If so , then it is almost certainly the thermo (very flaky on this model) or your thermal overload (one time safety that acts like a fuse and looks like a diode) which is inside and can only be replaced by someone familiar with electric repair. I have had one of these for 2 years and the thermo never has worked correctly and after a few months the little plastic cam (that the door lever rides on that holds door closed and in partly open position) wears a groove and won't keep the door closed. I lost my receipt so I am going to see if HB will send me a new cam and thermo (although I think they are all incorrect as far as temp accuracy) without charging. If you got this at Wal-Mart or Sam's and have the receipt they will take it back for credit or exchange. No time limit at Sam's.
