Lubrication for toaster oven


The door to my toaster oven makes a loud and annoying noise.
What can I use to lubricate that tension arm on the left side ? Wd40? Silicone or aluminum spray? It hasLubrication for toaster oven-15600927708428571492760977194221_1560092797840.jpg to withstand heat, obviously.

Wouldn't use anything that is VOC generating.



Might be better to just dab some oil oil or coconut oil on it.

Good point and thank you. I used a drop or 2 of olive oil and straightened out that arm lever, and it no longer sounds like a metal grinder... Again, thanks.

Good that you have made a repair to shut it up.

That probably was the problem, those are weak and bend too often.

I was going to suggest a drop of a Graphite Lubricant, sold to lube locks with, it won't burn, is fairly safe to ingest if by accident it gets to the cooking surfaces, but tidiness in all things is a better practice.
