Question about DeLonghi AS690 Airstream Stainless Steel Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking

Open Question

Won't Close The door to the toaster oven won't close the last 1/2 inch... and hasn't for 7 years. There is nothing stuck in it. I can push it in mannually but w/o pressure it pops right open. When it was new it closed for the first 2 mo or so and then it has only had one other stint where it has closed about 3 years ago... it worked for 6 months. Thanks

SOURCE: Light and oven does not turn on.

:-) Same here, in the middle of cooking the toaster just died. O' well, i am a tech! i opened the unit and diagnosed the problem. the unit has a non-resettable high limit thermostat that blows open when reaching high temperature. the problem is that when it happened, the oven wasn't even hot and was only on for a bout five (5) minutes. From my experience, it is due to a design defect. from all i have seen so far, it doesn't seem that the company cares about its reputation or customers... what can you expect from the French?!

SOURCE: Delonghi AS690 toaster oven lower element won't turn on.

Cactus Bob Is WRONG. I've had these replaced; and then, when it happened subsequently, bought the part and replaced it myself. You have to take the entire thing apart. but it can be done.

Could be the timer switch. They will suddenly stop working all at once or work intermittantly. Unless it's a Delonghi you may have a very hard time finding the part you need. If the switch is a DKJ/1-60 you will not find one but there is a Delonghi switch that you can use which you can find at www.thegourmetdepotco.com or www.applianceparts.com . The Delonghi part # is 5218104600 to replace a DKJ/1-60

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.

Door does not close


After 3 years of perfect service, our toaster oven's door stop closing easily. After reading the internet and trying to contact Cuisinart for a solution I was stumped and frustrated. Someone on the internet mentioned using wd-40, but I didn't want the smell when I toasted! I try cleaning the metal arm that held the glass door using an alcohol pad and that actually helped a little! After thinking about something to lubricate the door are with that won't smell awful and hopefully won't catch fire -- I decided to try olive oil! I took a little, very little on a paper towel and rubbed the metal arm a few times -- It worked!!!!!!! The Door now closes with the greatest of ease! and doesn't smell awful when you toast, so far it has not caught fire. Give it a try! I love to give it 4 starts, but Cuisinart support didn't have a solution... I'm sure even if I suggest to them my fix that won't share the info, but use at your risk! I am certainly not responsible for any mishaps that may occur if try my fix, but worked for me.

Can I heat tv dinners in my new toaster oven


If the TV Dinner will fit flat on the rack and still allow the door to close, yes, you can heat up a TV Dinner in your toaster oven.

Toaster Oven Repair


Toaster switch does not stay down. I have to hold the switch down to get toast. The heating element works fine as does the oven. Can we fix the switch? Or, do you know someone to whom we can send it for repair? Thanks!

Toaster oven


THERE IS A SAFETY MECHANISM ATTACHED TO THE DOOR THAT TURNS OFF THE OVEN WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. INSIDE, BEHIND THE KNOBS THERE IS A SPRING THAT ATTACHES TO A WIRE THAT IS CONNECTED TO THE DOOR. WHEN THE DOOR OPENS THE WIRE RELEASES THE SAFETY MECHANISM AND THE OVEN SHUTS OFF. WHEN CLOSED THE WIRE PUSHES AGAINST THE MECHANISM AND THE OVEN WORKS. I WAS ABLE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO RECONNECT THIS FEATURE SO THAT THE OVEN WOULD WORK.

Door


On my toaster oven, sometimes the plate at the bottom of it would get stuck when shutting because the arms it uses to close it weren't very good.

I had to push it in with my hand to get it closed. (make sure it's cool)
