If the model # is correct, I don't think there is much if any adjustment on the spring tension. I would double check to make sure the door is properly installed on the unit. The door is removeable and if it is not reinsalled properly or never was it will not shut right. Check your manual if you have one. Other common causes are the door gasket may be binding the door, check the gasket to make sure it isn't folded over or torn etc.. the most common thing I have seen is when the door was open someone or something put some weight on the door and the door may actually be warped. For a tech this is a lot of fun trying to figure out which part is warped.

Oven door will not fully close allowing heat to escape and light stays on

Is the door locked? if it is it won't close all the way if it was in the locked position before it was closed. like if it was programmed for "self clean" without the door being closed, the lock would be engaged still.

The wall oven door wont shut at the top by about approx 1/2 inch. I took off the door a few times but couldnt work out how to adjust it.

Some oven doors have adjustable springs and some not. If adjustable, tighten down the nuts until the door closes. Also check to make sure the hinge arms are not bent. Open the door and it should stay open in a horizontal position. If it falls lower than horizontal, the hinge arms may be bent. You will have to remove them to straigthen them or replace with new.

Guardian garage door opener not working,when I press the remote handheld button,the light in motor unit starts flickering. untill I press one of the 4 small switches,then it stops flickering. garage door...

Is your door jammed or could the door be moved smoothly? If not then the motor might not be able to start and it flickers, try to press "+" for open or close (depends on whether the unit is going to close or open the door) once at a time and try to remote it, this will increase the open/close force and may overcome the issue.One more thing, do the photo-eye sensors give unobstructed with good indication?

Ilve oven door adjar with a gap at the top

Yes but try removing the door usually a small lever on the hinge or just lower the door a bit and lift it off. Then put it back on and make sure it sits back down into the hinges. We had one that did the same thing and the door was just a bit out of the hinge.

Oven light remains on when door is closed.

This range was probably made by Whirlpool or one of its dozen divisions so it probably has some slop in the hinge mounting to correct for their so-so manufacturing. You may have to somewhat disassemble it to get to the hinge screws though.

Kenmore oven door

There is no adjustment for the door.
If the door is not bent or warped then you need a new hinge kit. The part number is 5304445529. It includes new hinges and the recepticles that go in the cabinet. There was a service bulletin a while back about this problem and a few models were being repaired free of charge. I don't have the letter on this computer to tell you if yours falls in the free repair catagory but will try to find it and let you know.
