Simpson Oven Door won't close all the way

Hi, I was searching this and many other forums and all were saying that if you have a 10mm gap and non adjustable hinges you need to replace the door .... Not so!
I have a Simpson wall oven with non adjustable hinges (model 63H914S) and I found that by carefully grinding the area indicated on the hing while in the open position with the hing lock in place the door now closes perfectly.
By leaving the door in place it is easy to check if it closes after each grind. (grind both hinges and test/check the gap on each side). The photo shows where I ground. hope this helps and save some money.

Bosch HBL 645 oven door won't close all the way


I am afraid that the door hinges are non adjustable, and the only solution is to replace them as a pair.
There should be some kind of latch mechanism at the end of the hinge
where it is fastened to the door to compress the hinge to enable you to remove them.
Hope this helps.

The door no longer closes correctly leaving a gap at the top. When open it is no longer horizontal but falls to a downward slant


It sounds to me that the oven door hinges need to be replaced, especially if it is a drop down door
They need replacing as a pair.
There is no povision made for adjustment on hinges.
Hope this helps you.

my oven door does not close tight


These hinges are now obsolete and you cannot get them anywhere. The poblem with this type of hinge is not with weak springs or anything like that, it is with the pivot pin in the door hinge. Follow these instructions and it will not cost you anything for the repair.
It is best to remove the oven from the housing. Remove both sides of the oven panels, you have to remove the top first, then the sides (remove about 20 screws all together). Support the bottom oven door first by tying a bit of string between the bottom and top oven door hand rails. This will stop the door falling down when you remove the springs. unhook the springs and the door will just slide out. (Use a loop of string attached to the back end of the spring to pull it from its holes.)
Dismantle the door by removing the screws. You will probably find that the the hinge pivot pins have come away from the U shaped hinge bracket. The secret is to make sure that these are fixed firm back into the bracket. What I did was to nip the U hinge bracket in a vice, (or use pliers) so that the pin will now protude slightly each side of the bracket. This allows more surface bearing area so the pin will not pull itself out of the hinge. To further make sure, I glued the ends of the pin with epoxy resin.
Then reassemble.
My door now feels like a new one even though it is 15 years old.
