Problem 3: Why my LCD display light has gone out?

Solution: This happens when your toaster oven goes into standby mode. The toaster oven goes to standby mode if it is not used for more than 10 minutes. In standby mode, the LCD screen will cease to illuminate, however, all function options will still be visible.

So, in order to reuse your oven, you need to press “START/CANCEL” button or turn any dialer button.

Problem 4: Why the pizza does not cook evenly?

Problem 5: Why Magnetic Auto-Rack Eject comes out too far when I open the door?

Problem 6: Why I cannot select the FROZEN FOODS button?

Solution: You can select the frozen foods button only in specific cooking functions i.e. toast, bagel, pizza and cookies.

Check this video for more information:


Problem 7: Why the water is dripping onto the counter from under the door of Breville oven?

Solution: You don’t need to worry as this is normal. The condensation created from high moisture content foods such as frozen breads will run down the inside of the door and can drip onto the counter.

Check this video for more information:


Problem 8: Why the steam is coming out from the top of the oven door?

Solution: This is also a normal condition and you don’t need to worry about anything. The stream comes out from the top of the oven door because the door is vented to release steam created from high-moisture content foods.

Check this video for more information:


Problem 9: Why the heating elements appear to be pulsing?

Solution: The heat inside the toaster oven is controlled by pulsing the power in heating element through smart element IQ technology. This is a normal situation and you don’t need to worry about anything.

Check this video for more information:


Problem 10: Why temperature reading on the LCD screen doesn’t match the temperature measured inside the oven?

Solution: The smart ovens by Breville are programmed in such a way that the preheat sound alerts at 75% of the target temperature. So, the temperature displayed on the LCD screen will not match the temperature inside the oven.


Problem 11: Why Breville toaster oven start button not working?

Solution: This is a very common problem that is faced by a lot of users in which whenever a user presses the start button, it triggers the convection fan button as well. The temporary solution to this problem is that you need to press the convection fan button first and then try to press the “Start / Pause” button. If you need a permanent fix then you need to get it fixed from Breville customer support.


The above issues are very common issues that are faced by many users and people can fix these issues on their own but there are some problems for which you need help from experts.

7) After replacing the old fuse with the new one, you need to place the thermal fuse inside the brackets and fix it at its place.

8) Now, cover the fuse with the insulation that you have removed earlier and re-screw the inner panel and then back panel.

9) Now, turn on your smart toaster oven by Breville.

  1. I am attempting to diagnose an issue with my Breville Toaster Oven (Model BOV800XL / A.
    Appears to be no power. Nothing appears on the display. In researching possible fixes on the internet, most point to the thermal fuse as being the possible issue. I have checked the thermal fuse and it is good. Looking for assistance as to what to try next. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
    We have purchased a number of this model over the years. We replaced a previous one that also quit working and have purchased one for each of our 3 children as we do really love the oven. Disappointing that they aren’t lasting very long though.
    Please advise.
    Have a great day!

      • I am just like this customer, Had many of these and their customer service never offers any real help, just send it back for a min $99 plus repairs and parts. Now my 3rd on broke, have to consider spending $275 somewhere else, they definitely don’t last sadly.

  2. A week or so ago my Breville (abt. 5 yrs. old) would not set above 230 F on bake. So I started just using “Roast”. OK for a few days but today roast wouldn’t go above 230 deg. either. What’s going on???

  4. We love our Breville oven. However we hear a loud screeching sound when we open the door. Once before when we cooked something at 450 degrees for 30 min, the sound stopped for a short while. What is going on with this?

  5. My BOV845 is only 2 yrs old- total electrical panel glitch, when plug in it beeps and flashes, sometimes turns on heat element when touch lightbulb button- I checked thermal fuse and power is getting through there- arghhhh!!

    • Should add that it does not function properly at all, not just annoying beeps, etc. There IS power but it just glitches, changes mode, turn on/off etc. totally unpredictable

      • I have the same problem. LCD screen goes blank. Screeching, flashing. Sometimes if I keep pushing buttons and it will stop. Other times I must power it off to stop the noise and flashing.

      • I’m having the same thing happen. I’ve tried unplugging it and as soon as I attempt to plug it back in the death beeps and flicker run wild.

        Were you able to get any help from customer support?

      • Same problem here. Did anyone find a solution, yet? I suspect that the control board is fried. Bought a new 900 series, and it has a (control board?) cooling fan that runs continuously after the oven shuts off. I suspect that they know this is an issue.

  6. Trying to buy thermal fuse for my Breville BOV 845.
    I paid on-line in December and am still waiting!
    Frustrating. Hard to contact Breville to complain. I refuse to buy a new oven.

  7. your video is very clear and the link to buy new thermo fuses was great.
    however! there is no information in the video about what kind of crimp connector you are using. I am attempting to replace the fuse myself and am very frustrated you left out this very important piece of information. upon researching, I find there are zillions of connectors; I will not list them here.
    any information aka specifications and source of purchase that you have would be much appreciated.

    Our 4 yr old oven’s convention fan stopped working. We tried cleaning it and using air pressure to get the fan moving. The fan works but not when we push the button. Any suggestions?

  10. I have a breville toaster oven BOV450XL. The word darkness or slices flashes constantly even after I set the number. It seems to be working but I am concerned about a malfunction. Any suggestions?

  11. I was sitting watching tv when i heard this horrible noise. I got up to look and my Breville toaster oven started on its own, was making a terrible loud noise, was flashing and buzzing and i fimly believe if i wasn’t home my house would have burned down or if i was in bed asleep God knows what would have happened. I hadn’t even used the oven for over 8 hours.
    Purchased at the Bay not quite 2 years ago. Very serious

  12. Sometimes my B0V900BSS select dial does not want to move up in the menu when rotated. Regardless if you move the dial slow or fast, turning CCW will move you down in the menu as often, or move often, than moving up, so you can’t get to modes high in the menu. This is an intermittent problem, when it strikes bad, you have to turn the dial for over a minute before you get more up movements than down and can finally get up to TOAST. I assume there is an encoder that gets glunked up, cleared off, then works fine for a week until too much build up causes the problem again. Is there a known solution that doesn’t require replacement?

  13. Just unboxed my oven as per the instructions, I have plugged it in and I can’t see the text on the LCD screen…it is very faint that I can just work out the larger numbers.

    Is there a way to make the text darker???

  14. My timer has stopped counting down after temp is reached….

  15. I just unboxed my breville smart oven air fryer pro, I followed the instructions for the initial start up, I got tot the part where you push the start button and it doesn’t do anything ? The unit is set to pizza, the display also say 375 degrees 20 minutes per the instructions, there is a small light for convection and frozen on the display ? I heard the initial beep and the start button flashed, but the oven doesn’t turn on, we press the start button and nothing !!!
    Very frustrating for such an expensive piece of equipment, I’m getting ready to box it back up, please advise if possible. Thank you

    • I have the same problem with the 900. And when I hold down the start button the display changes to show 120 over 9067. This happened after using the oven for about 2 yrs. and it has happened with the last 2 replacements sent by Breville. I am now wondering if it has something to do with my home circuit.

      Reply
      • I also get 120 over 9067 and the oven is brand new. Hasn’t cooked a thing yet.

        Did you ever have an oven work after the “120 over 9067” error?

  16. My toaster oven has been in use for four years. Just recently, the bottom heating elements stopped working. So really only the broil function works as it should.

    What can be the cause and is there an easy fix?

  17. Help, I can’t get the timer to move above 8 minutes. This occurs only on “Bake”. Any help would be appreciated. Can’t live without my Breville. 🥲 Thank you.

    I appreciate all the Q&A’s. Great job.

  18. My Smart Oven BOV800XL oven door has gotten very stiff and hard to shut. I called Breville and their answer was to pay $150. and send it in for them to repair or replace with a refurbished one. Any suggestions or similar situations that could help would be appreciated.

  19. When I turn the convection feature on the oven makes a loud noise that it never made before. The rest of the features work fine. Any suggestion?

    • I am having this problem too–a loud hum when the convection feature is on. So far the features work, but the loud hum is a new development on my 2-year old oven.

  20. I just opened the latest Breville air fryer. Made one toast and then it stopped working. Display lights on. Saw a quick message 120 over 9067 and it won’t turn on in any setting. Tried several options. Different outlets. Nothing. What a piece of garbage. I had one toast.

  21. I’m have the same problem with my brand new out of the box, never been used Breville BOV900 Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro: 120 over 9067 error code – the unit won’t turn on and there’s no mention in the manual about this error code at all. This is so disappointing. My BOV900 is going back to where it was purchased. This appears to be a common issue with the Breville BOV900 but no indication of what you should do in the manual. Below is an excerpt that was taken from another thread with the same issue:

    “After almost 2 years my Breville smart oven showed 120 9067 when I pressed the start button and it wouldn’t start. I was sent a replacement and the same thing happened. A second replacement was sent, same problem. I received a request to rate the oven and I gave it a low rating based on the problem I was having. I had given up and thought any future replacement was not going to work and that the problem must have to do with the electrical circuit in my home. I received a response from a customer service rep. (Michelle Robinson) who had had similar experience and was able to offer a solution that worked. She is a model for ideal customer service and has restored my faith in Breville.”

  22. I opened the door to my Breville and I heard a “clicking” noise as if something snapped. Now the door doesn’t close tightly. It’s as if the spring or something that held the door just broke. Can this be replaced?

    How long can this toaster oven last? I’ve had it forma while now … over 5 years?

    But I just love it!

  23. Just purchased the Breville BOV650XL and the beeper is barely audible. Is there a way to increase the volume? Otherwise it is working well. It is a replacement for the 5+ year older model I had that has recently worked intermittently. The beeper on the older model was loud enough to hear a few feet away but the beeper on the new one is almost non-existent.

  24. We have had a Breville toaster oven (model above) for a few years and it has worked well. Recently the display panel and related functions have become erratic and non-functional (at least temporarily). Sometimes it works fine when turned on but more than half the time it makes a noise (humming sound), the LCD freezes or goes blank, and is clearly not functional. Light tapping on the side near the LCD panel often works to reset it but not always. Everything else (heating-wise) seems to be working OK but the erratic LCD is a real concern and it would be a shame to discard the oven if the fix is not major.

    So my questions are: What options do we have? Is this an issue that can be addressed by a homeowner? Would a general (not necessarily Breville) appliance repair shop be able to fix this? What would a Breville shop fix entail? Generally, would it be worth fixing from a cost perspective?

  25. My problem is that my oven when i turn it on begins to hum loudly.Its less than two years old.It still works but i feel it does not heat up like it used to.

  26. Is the convection symbol on the screen supposed to go around? My oven screen says convection and there is a symbol to the left of the word. The symbol has an arrow, seemingly indicating the symbol will revolve counterclockwise but it doesn’t move. Is this normal?

    Reply
  27. The LCD screen displays “E06” error on my BOV900. Same as an E05 message? Thermal Fuse issue? or something else? Hesitant if electrical repairs involve being able to tell difference between red/green wires. 20 days remaining on credit card extended warranty, if denied, will circle back to trying the fuse fix, unless EO6 is not the Thermal Fuse.

    Reply
    • The LCD screen will display “E06” error only when there is a non-resettable issue with the oven. We suggest you to remove the power code immediately and call the Breville customer support.
