Looking specifically for one marked as follows --

Model 106632
Series C3820AT
Type 019

These are branded GE on the glass door, lower-left corner, and marked as Wal-Mart brand on the back (which is where you'll find the model/series/type markings as well). Three grey dials, temp on the top, timer in the middle, and setting (bake-broil-toast) on the bottom. Red indicator light between the temp and timer dials. The model is also a little old... more than the two-year warranty for sure.

Mine has a busted element and I could use a similarly busted one to effect repairs if anyone has one. I don't drive but if you do I'll pay your gas money to truck it to me... Wink PM me for address info.

Oh, and FWIW -- I've made the rounds of the overpriced appliance parts online warehouses, and I've been to eBay, and nobody has anything. I'm a little afraid to call GE themselves... if they have the part at all (not likely!) it'll cost an arm, a leg, and the soul of my firstborn child. I know how those things work...

Called GE's WalMart division earlier today (or is that WalMart's GE division? Tongue ). Once a product is out of warranty, they don't stock parts for it any more.

I've had that toaster oven a lot longer than the warranty lasts... 2 year warranty which is nice but it's long gone now.

Just wondering, have you tried some of the online appliance part places, such as: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/

There are a few others as well.

There is also a small appliance repair person/business somewhere close at hand, perhaps in Chatham County, as I've seen folks talking about in here in the BBS forum. I'm not sure, however, who that was.

Good luck!

AppliancePartsPros and their competitors were my second stop.

eBay was the first stop.

If you can ferret up the name of that small-appliance shop, AND they'll sell me the part, I'll be very happy indeed! (I really can't afford for them to do the repairs.)

Here is the user manual, maybe it has GE part numbers you can find:

That's a different model Wink although it sorta doesn't matter -- even if I had part numbers, I couldn't get replacement parts online -- the appliance parts warehouses don't have 'em and GE doesn't either (this was stated earlier in the thread). Even eBay doesn't have anything for me!

If someone knows the name of the repair shop that Jeff G mentioned, that's my last hope. After that... new toaster oven Sad

Of note -- if anyone has a toaster oven that's similar in some respects to mine, but has a problem with it unrelated to the elements, I may be able to salvage parts...

Here's what I need --
toaster oven rated 1500w @ approx. 120v (regular wall power -- 110-125v, it's all the same)
four single elements that go straight across the inside of the oven (no bends or loops)
inside of the oven measures between 12" and 12-1/4" wide

let me know if you can help.

Sorry for not responding any sooner, as I'm not on the BBS too much nowadays being I'm inundated with so many things. Nonetheless, here is the conversation that I remember from quite a while ago (hopefully it may lead to some help with your issue): http://chatham-county-nc.com/bulletinboard/index.php/topic,18167.msg182735.html#msg182735

No worries, Jeff -- not everyone is a glued-to-the-computer nerd like I am Tongue Cheesy

Ah, yes, Archie... I know of him through a friend. I'm expecting that friend to call me tomorrow anyways, so I'll ask them for advice on this.

In the meantime, if anyone has a salvageable toaster oven, feel free to post here.

Bought a new toaster oven.

Guess I'll strip the old one for parts. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to make it into a solder reflow oven, would be awesome *and* handy to have one of those.

BTW: solder reflow ovens made by converting toaster ovens are actually not unheard of amongst electronics hobbyists such as myself -- there's even a tutorial on Sparkfun Electronics' website (they're quite reputable -- not to mention just plain good folks) about how to do the conversion -- using their overly fancy, overly expensive parts, of course -- but I should be able to hack something together that'll work nicely...

soapbox
'hack' doesn't mean what you probably think it means Wink the nasty stuff is properly 'cracking' and that's different and very very bad -- 'hacking' is simply modifying something for a function it was not originally intended to perform -- and voiding the warranty is a common side effect that you really shouldn't worry about Wink Building a homemade turntable for vinyl records is hacking. Taking a turntable that works fine except the needle cartridge is rare, and modifying it to use a common cartridge, is also hacking. Stealing money using the Internet is not hacking, it's cracking, and it's bad for you -- so don't do it!

Well, Mom says "junk it", so off it goes. I'll put it back together, clean it up, attach a note with a good explanation of what's wrong, and take it to the Swap Shop at the nearest collection center in the next week or so. A broken toaster oven isn't worth money, obviously -- especially considering it wasn't exactly the most expensive model at Wal-Mart to begin with...

Of course if someone is particularly handy with appliances and wants to take it off my hands I won't object, but I'm not exactly expecting that... I don't drive, though, so you'd have to come and pick it up.
