How to stop the bell

I have a rival toaster oven similar to the one in the picture. I work in a cubicle area at work so everytime I turn it on the bell rings. Is there a way to turn unplug it or something so that the timer still works but the bell is silent.?

Thanks

I have exactly the same toaster oven and question.

@yeltommo what model is your Rival Toaster Oven?

por

Okay, I lied. It's not exactly the same toaster oven in that it's a Black + Decker rather than a Rival, but I suspect it's the same design. It's called the 2 Knob Toaster Oven, but I can't find a model number.

Actually I just did this and it wasn’t too hard. New basic Black and Decker toaster oven that cost $40. Took out enough screws to allow front panel to pull out about ½” on the top edge. There was a bell on the back side of the timer knob switch that I could see when I looked down inside. Seems like that is pretty standard for these contraptions. I drove a 3” screw from the top down between the bell and the switch so it’s snug. i made sure it was out of the way of other electrical contacts for the other switches/knobs. Now it just makes a sort of self-satisfied click when the timer is done. Put the screws back in and heated up some chicken nuggets without letting everyone in the neighboring studios know lunch was ready. Yay!

@arvidt great answer to an old question. Describes exactly how to stop the pestering dining noise of the toaster oven. Should have taken some pictures of how you did this, so we could have a guide for it as well.

Most of these have a mechanical bell which is part of the windup timer. These are difficult to open and put back together.

Have you looked for an electronic timer version of toaster like a Breville mini toaster. At least you could then disable to electric buzzer unit.

Thanks. The question is, how difficult? Let's assume I can't afford a new one. I read somewhere that someone was able to pull or bend the clapper away from the bell enough so that it didn't reach the bell when the timer ended. Not sure how similar his unit was. Are you suggesting that it's hard to disable the bell without disabling the timer (which in this case is integrated with the toasting/cooking function)?

Most of these timers are not designed to be opened so you end up breaking it. But even if you do open it up the design of the gear works of the timer makes it hard to disable the striker. The only thing you could do is pad the bell so its not as loud.

Have you tried locating a broken stove of the same series to practice on?

No, I haven't. If it's that hard, then it's probably not worth it, though padding the bell would definitely be better than nothing.

Dude, we are sending people to Mars soon.... 🙄 has our society become so mechanically reclined as to not stop a bell from ringing? 😉

A mechanically operating bell is easy, just lots of screws....so many screws...🤣
