WD-40 Should stop your door scrape and Pam Spray will make your drip pan easier to clean.

I've had one of these for about 4 years now and use it multiple times a day.
The fan failed just after the warranty expired so I've been using it fan-less for about 3 years now. There is no point in opening it up as it's not meant to be serviceable and there are no replacement parts for this model. I believe it's the bearing that wears and/or seizes so it's not really fixable. (The fan will stay off if turned off until there is a power failure and you need to remember to turn it back off as it defaults to fan on when the power returns. Mine won't spin so there is no noise other than a soft hum when it's on.). There isn't that much difference or time saved with the fan on or off so it doesn't bother me not to have the fan working.

For anyone who's recently bought one, or thinking of buying one:

The magnetic pads on the inside door tend to wear and it may start grinding when it pulls the grill out. I dab a tiny bit of cooking oil on these pads and that left-side hinge every so often. Also, when the magnets pull the grill out, it puts a bit of downward pressure on the track the grill slides out from and wears out that black no-stick coating, so you also need to oil just the last bit of those slots on either side as well.

And, to keep the black 'time' and 'temp' lettering from wearing off, I carefully placed matte scotch tape over those. That panel doesn't get hot much and the tape has been in place for years without lifting. I would not put tape on the warning lettering on the door behind the handle as that area gets too hot (I don't think anyone cares if those rub off or not).

One of the great things about this model is that it uses quartz elements, unlike some of the other makes. These help preheat the oven at least twice as fast as the ovens using the black nichrome element rods.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy this same model again if this one ever completely fails.

(unless the air fryer versions have a better fan motor or a serviceable one, I'd be reluctant to pay the higher premium for that model).
