The only thing you have to know is that pork and chicken cook at 325. Any baked goods with leavening in it cooks at 75 degrees less than what the recipes calls for but no lower than 275.

Depends on the terms of the auction - whether goods were offered as seen and without warranty?
If that is the case you are stuck with it unless the manufacturer or another supplier will agree to take the appropriate action on your behalf. If that is not the case, the auctioneer would be in breach of the contract he made with you by supplying an item that "is not of merchantable quality" and he should offer you a refund.

You didn't say how old this new item actually is or whether the recall was still running, whether the recall was for free modifications, free replacements or for refunds.
Generally when there is a recall, the item would be returned to the supplier the original contract was made with.

If the recall was for modification to make the unit fit for purpose, not knowing whether it has been modified adds a further layer of confusion and doubt.

If you can't receive satisfactory service then you have the option of junking it and writing it off to experience, putting it back in an auction or selling it through classifieds or paying a local white appliance engineer to check that it is safe and to make any modification necessary.

I found it! In the manual that came with the toaster (and not the one online), I found the following instructions:

1. To turn the indicator beep OFF: Press both [TOAST] and [BAGEL] keys and hold for 5 seconds.
2. to turn the indicator beep ON: Repeat the above process.

Note - if you lose power or unplug the unit, the beep comes back, so keep these instructions handy. :)

I just fixed the problem with my Krups FBC-212. The door would not stay closed because the spring that keeps it in the closed position was broken. I ordered another from one of the small appliances parts sites (about $7 plus shipping) and that fixed it. I will describe how to do it and how to avoid the mistake that made it much harder and longer than it should have.
Remove the black screws at the back side, the ones holding the external black metal case to the silver chassis. There are 9 of these on my oven.
Also remove the 3 screws holding the left-side foot on.
Now you can probably slide the metal case (previously held on by the 9 screws) out from under the black metal front frame on the left side, thereby exposing the broken spring.
If you cannot get it out from under the lip of the front frame, you can take off the right-hand foot, and if that is not enough, you can remove THREE of the 4 black screws just inside the door holding the front frame to the chassis. Do NOT remove the lower left one next to where the flat door hinge piece goes into oven (which was my mistake) because that screw holds a critical black plastic piece in place.
By now you will be able to slide the black case that covers the sides and top backward and outward enough to expose the broken spring. It will be obvious how to attach the new one.

Send it back

The toaster oven worked great for a couple of months

Reviewed in the United States on March 6, 2018Verified Purchase
The toaster oven worked great for a couple of months. Suddenly, it started malfunctioning and displayed "ErL" on the screen. This started after the Amazon return window closed.

Sometimes the toaster oven works after you unplug it and plug it back in. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the error happens when you are using the toaster oven. But it sends this error even when it's not in use.

I've done some research online and it seems that this had happened to others as well and that there is no fix. Therefore, I would recommend against purchasing this toaster oven.

What's not to like?

  • Malfunctions on the selector knob: A few users were disappointed to see that after a year or so of use the knob on the mode selector was damaged and didn't work, unfortunately, this would happen once the warranty had already expired.
  • Software error: Another common situation is that a short time after buying, a sign stating "ERL Error" would appear, and the unit would automatically shut off. However, this error can be fixed with the help of Cuisinart´s customer support.

I found the answer (see below) posted on another web site. I followed the instructions and replaced the spring. I found, as the original poster had, that the new spring works better than the original and is much more sturdy. To the original instructions, I would add the following:

1) There are about 20 screws so have patience removing and replacing the screws.
2) Step 3, "Slide off the rear panel" requires further clarification as the panel will not slide off even with all screws removed. I had to turn the oven over, with the top of the oven sitting on the work table. I then used a screw driver to lift the two tabs that hold the back panel to the bottom panel. With the tabs lifted, the back panel will rotate away from the oven along the edge where back panel slides into the top panel. The back panel can then be slid out. I have included three photos that show this step.
3) Step 7, "Re-attach feet": Be sure to use the guides on the bottom of the oven to slide the foot assembly onto the oven. I had unsuccessfully tried to screw the feet onto the oven without using the guides.

Oringinal instructions for replacing the broken spring:

Just repaired this yesterday.

Got a spring from Lowes (Hillman Part # 543028 for about $4), it's larger than the original but seems much sturdier, original is really thin metal. Fit the space provided without problem.

Oddly, end result was a more 'giving' spring action, prefer it to original, which loved to snap shut unless door was 100% opened (ie fully 90 degree open).

This is for BOV800XL:
1. Remove all rear screws
2. Remove feet entirely
3. Slide off rear panel
4. I was not able to remove top housing - but I was able to gently pry sides open just enough to thread the new spring with a little ingenuity and effort. Watch out for sharp metal edges everywhere.
5. Slide back in (remember that top edge goes under the top edge/lip)
6. Put all screws back in
7. Re-attach feet

Good luck!

You really need to replace the fan. This motor uses cheap sleeve bearings and you will only cause a problem (maybe burn the house down) trying to spray lube from the interior which I assume is what you are doing.

This is not an easy repair. I replaced mine which had an open winding. HB tried to make this unit so it could NOT be repaired, but of course it can be if you want to spend the time. The motor is part of a metal duct assy which also holds the rotisserie motor. It is RIVETED to the interior wall of the oven. The fan uses a DUAL shaft C-Frame shaded pole 120 VAC ~ 3000 RPM ~ .5 amp motor which is not very common, with 2 separate axial type metal blade sets. The oven door also develops a problem over time that keeps it from staying closed. The thermo on all these units is also inaccurate as the "sensor" is simply a metal plate screwed to the top right area of the oven interior. When I replaced my fan I also put in a new REAL oven thermo with a 12" sensing bulb which I mounted inside the oven as it should be. It took some searching to find these two parts. You can also repair the door mechanism at the same time and give yourself a couple more years until you have to do it again. I have all more and can post images if you want to tackle this. I did because the oven is large and the replacement model (31100 for $69 at Wal-Mart) has 1.5" less height and it uses the SAME parts with the same design flaw for the thermo. The retail cost on the parts for this job are ~$160, but I got mine for $15 total. I paid $48 for this oven years ago at Sams.
