Kitchen aid toaster oven model KCO253CU.

This is the second failure of this oven I have had. The first one failed and would not come on, defective switches. It was replaced the replacement lasted about a year when it failed. I had had problems with it not always turning off when the timer ran out but was able to have it go off by switching to toaster from bake. This time it went off but after we finished supper my wife asked why the oven was on. It had come on by itself and the only way I could get it off was to pull the plug. I plugged it in this morning with all switches in the off position and it came on. I will be cutting the cord and scrapping it will not buy another. Kitchen Aid used to be one of the better quality appliances until they outsourced to china. They have gone downhill fast since then.
