The last Breville Oven I owned worked amazing for 3 years, even convinced family members to buy it and then the mainboard died on it and Breville wouldn't do anything for me to fix it. I get it, it had a 1 year warranty but when you by a $300 small appliance you expect it to last more than 3 years. Based on the number of online reports it seemed like a common failure too, but I went all the way up the Breville CS chain and all I could get from them is $50 off my next purchase.

I vowed never to buy another Breville item again...

No, you can redeem for cash cards (bad way to use it), Costco membership (better than cash cards, but still not optimal) or flights (best way, especially if you go for business long haul tickets).

I wouldn't say to never buy anything from them because of one experience. They did offer you $50 off the next product and your appliance did come with a one year warranty and it got you 2 extra years out of it. I wouldn't necessarily put them under the bus. And what about the family members you convinced to buy the same product I'm assuming theirs are still up and running? Exactly!

I have the older Breville BOV845BSS and it has been great. Preheats in a fraction of the time a big oven does, which I no longer use except for turkeys. I also was concerned when buying it after reading the high failure rates of the element inside. So for have had it for 2+ years and still going. My LCD display acts up for periods of time where I can't see one of the lines on the display. Some how fixed it self for a few months and now have issue again.

I have that also.. Do we need to remove the plug every time or you just leave them alone plugged in?

I got mine from Costco (@$480 earlier this year and 4x Aeroplan). It comes with a 2 year warranty, not sure if the CapitalOne MC will extend it more than 2 years, worst comes to worst, there's Costco warranty behind it.

Before giving up on Breville, I'd try to look at the sites below. I've been able to fix most of my appliances from what I found on the net including ovens, microwaves, espresso makers, etc.

The thermal fuse seems to be a common problem with the Breville Smart Ovens, check this out if you have a Breville and it may help you in the future with an easy fix.

"Thanks a million! I was able to take the unit out of the trash and give my 16 yr. old son a project. Thanks to your great instruction, it now works like new and my son got a huge dose of self satisfaction for being able to repair something vs trash it. Appreciate you posting this!" <--- That's a great ending!
Note: reading the posts on the site indicates that the thermal fuse can fail multiple times after the replacement and there are some other fixes (solder joints) beside the thermal fuse.
