This Delonghi Convection Oven, EO1270, made in China under the name “德龙“, came to me in near pristine condition. It looked like it was used only a couple of times. Yet when I plugged it in it would not work. I decided to take it apart and see if I could repair it. It was pretty evident that this oven was not designed to be repaired. In the end I found a flaky on-off switch, which could have been replaced, but to get to the electronics I’d have to drill out a couple of rivets. This repair would not have been worthwhile.
