Anyone know where to get a replacement timer for this unit? B&D does
not have stock.
Timer failed after a few weeks and stays on until manually turned off.
I wonder how to find out if there is a recall on this product. This is
a fire/injury hazard.
Previous oven was also Black & Decker and used for 20 years. Was still
working when replaced because heating elements started to heat unevenly.
I would not recommend the TRO480BS. Many problems -- those I recall are
door can't be adjusted to close evenly, letting too much air in/out on
one side. Top and bottom heaters don't heat equally - have to turn
toast over to brown both sides, etc.
Considering it is most likely manufactured in China, you may try your luck on
AliExpress. Searching for "oven timer" pops up a decent lot of mechanical
You'd have to check the markings on your timer for a match.
And you'd need the patience for it to arrive :-)
The B&D TR048BS has one good feature... it's cheap. Typically about

timer would cost. Methinks buying a replacement toaster oven might be
cheaper. Or, as somone else suggested, try AliExpress. This looks
like a possible:
You didn't bother to mention whether the mechanism or the contacts
failed on your existing timer. If the contacts, I suggest you take it
apart and clean the contacts, which might fix the problem.
Incidentally, I use a similar B&D toaster oven for reflow soldering

Did you ask for a new one or just for a new timer?
Or after a few weeks after you threw it off the roof of your house? In
t hat case, no.
I thought they were supposed to be able to stay on indefinitely, because
it was posstible to use them without setting a timer. For example, if
you wanted to roast an entire pig, that would take a long time.
