SOURCE: stopped heating
Ours did the same thing. We've only used it 4 or 5 times. It just stopped working leaving us with a pile of raw chicken! We took ours back to the store where we bought it and they gave us a refund w/o any problems.

I had the same problem. I called the above number and they sent out the PA8300 (they call it a probe) within 3 days
This is the URL I found the # from

More than likely the magnetron has failed. This could be for a number of reason. Do you use your microwave to heat wheat packs or warm plates? If so, you may have dried the magnetron out (they use the moisture in whatever you're cooking to heat it, and plates/wheat bags have no moisture).
I'd say a trip to your local Microwave repairer could be in order. It could also be the High Voltage Fuse which has failed. Either way a repairer will be able to tell you!

I got the phone # 4 Toastmaster on line, called them. They said the pan was 2 old 2 have the plug in stock any more. I called a local repair man who said he could put a new cord in the present "plug". Has to solder & re-wire temp. plug.
Thank u for asking, u have a good source for people 2 go 2 4 lots of issues--very effective. I'm glad 2 know u're there!

What has happened is the threaded hole the screw goes into had 'stripped out'. The best option is to fill the threaded hole with epoxy, and put the screw back in, tightening it well and letting the epoxy cure. The only alternative is to thread the hole to a larger size, and use a larger screw.

I stumbled on this website by accident when I was trying to find a heat control for my Hoover fry pans. I own three. One is a model 8611 Fondue/Minnie Fry pan. It uses a "UniProbe" JPR 904. The control is rated 1650 watts, the pan is rated 800 watts. Your 8600 is a larger full sized pan. I do not own one of these pans to check the wattage. Read the wattage on the back of your old control as well as the bottom center of the pan itself. My research has not turned up any replacement for this part design. I never saw a competitor use this Uniprobe. I own a B3039 Broiler Lid full sized fry pan (Vintage about 1975). The pan is rated at 1200 watts with the control rated at 1500 watts. Yours is most likely a similar rating. The control is a no. 9906 or a78T. Neither, the UniProbe or the newer type is available from Hoover. The UniProbe was used in the 1960's and early 70's. It had three female connections. The outer two bring the wall current to the imbedded heating element in the pan. The center connection transfers heat from the pan to the temperature control and causes it to go on and off making it automatic. The later type control has the two outer female connections and brings in the power. The center connection was changed to the common male probe and transfers heat to the control to make it automatic. After a serious hunt for replacements I located the Presto control 0690005 rated at 1500 watts (just like the Hoover). Presto says their parts only work with Presto appliances. It works with Hoover for me, so I am happy. I bought the Presto griddle to test the probe compatibility and obtain the needed probe. I did find a company (by doing a "Bing" search) that claims they can bore the pan to accept the later type, probe (www.kieferappliance.com). Their approach sounds promising but if you decide to try this approach, do your own research of this company. If I understand your question correctly: I am not a parts dealer. I found a part that is serviceable for this long out of production "GEM" from Hoover. I am giving owners of these pans a way to continue using their pan as I did with mine. The downside seems to be that my simple fix for one style cord won't work for you. However, those that have one of the later models can continue to enjoy the uniqueness of these fine frying pans by trying the Presto control. CAUTION: Do not just start trying other parts to replace a missing part. It might be a dangerous experiment. Hope this clears up any misunderstandings. (As a side note: The main reason these controls fail is rough use of the cord going into the control itself. Too much pressure where the cord enters the control and the fine strands of wire will eventually break causing no electricity to get to the appliance. This will happen with any toaster or coffee maker or lamp cord or electric drill etc. These may be able to be repaired but it is not easy and is very time consuming.
