Breville Toaster Smart Oven Door Spring Issue broken, replacementhelp?

I understand that this isn't one of the ovens in this site, so I get it if you are unable to help, however I have a serious issue in which the toaster oven door sporadically opens because it is like a hair trigger; clearly there is an issue with the door spring. This has caused several unexpected burns, and has been going on for a few months now. We use it daily, and it would mean a lot if I could fix it. I just need to know what steps to get to the spring, and how to replace it; I have located a replacement spring already. Sadly, nothing already posted online can help, so this would be great as I have no money to hire someone to fix it. Thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It sounded like the spring snapped. Now the door barely stays closed.

Keep the old spring pieces and take them to a good hardware store, they usually have a selection of small springs to choose from. Find one that’s close in length and “stretch”, many of these parts are do not need an EXACT replacement. Love our Breville (we have two bov800’s). Too bad they try to screw you on repairs.

The part is on back-order from the manufacturer. Have a call into Breville support. Can't operate the oven without the door spring ...technically, can prop something in front of it, but not the point. Very limited part availability.

Check ebay or other sites

Called Breville - they DO NOT sell parts to anyone. That includes websites like Fixit.com and others. The only place to get the exact Breville spring for your oven (mine is a B0V800XL) is to send it to the repair center in Torrance, CA. You pay for shipping, both ways, and the repair is not cheap.

If you are able to find a junked Breville, same model as yours, on eBay or Craigs List, then go that route. Otherwise, either pay the big bucks to send it to Breville - Torrance for repair, or buy a new oven for $240.

Sorry for the bad news.

We had the same issue a few years back, the original spring just wore out. If you are somewhat handy, there are self repair guides online to follow, where you remove the side panel and back, as I recall (everything unplugged of course) to access the spring for the door. You can get a spring that is the same length (that's the important part) and install. We got a spring that was a bit fatter in diameter and not as taught. That's a good thing. The original spring was too tight and the door could slam shut. Go to ACE Hardware or Home Depot with the original spring and they will hook you up. Cost, about $2 or so, your time and some finagling to get the spring back in. The new spring we installed has worked perfectly. Good luck!
