Incident Details
  • Incident Description: I was using my Cuisinart TOB-40 toaster oven. I noticed the unit was running too hot. I turned the switch to off but it did not turn off. So this toaster oven failed in a way that: 1. The temperature now runs at max despite the knob setting. 2. The unit is always on, even when the knobs are set 'off', it has to be unplugged from the wall, while drawing max power for the unit. This unit is a fire hazard.
