Toaster Oven Timer Broken

Toaster Oven Timer Broken Appliances Repair

Toaster ovens are a compact and easy way to cook for one or two without having to waste the energy needed to power a conventional oven. The timer knob on the toaster oven allows you to set some food in the oven and not worry about it burning.  The oven gives off a loud ding alerting you to when your food is ready. So if your toaster oven timer is broken, you should try to fix it as soon as you can and there are a couple things that you can do.

You can try to replace the knob or simply get a separate timer.  To replace the knob, open up the side panel on the oven; you will see the wiring for your toaster oven. Check that the two wires that connect the switch to the oven are intact.  If not, use electrical tape to fix them. If the wire is beyond repair, you should get replacement wires from the hardware store. You can also buy a replacement knob from the manufacturer for around $5. Pull the knob off from the front after you remove the housing screws and replace the wires and knob. Replace the side panel and see if the knob works again.

Another option you have is to get a side timer. You can set the timer and walk away, but be sure to return as soon as the timer goes off so that you can turn the oven off.  This option is not directly attached to the oven so the heat will not turn off with this timer.  You should be vigilant when you use this kind of timing option.

Continuing Problems

If neither of these options work you should either replace the entire toaster oven or seek professional help.  Use TalkLocal to be put in contact with reliable local businesses within minutes.  You don’t have to do any work!
