In most cases door hinges needs to be replace but some time with old stile ovens and ranges help this trik:
1. Put small towels on right and left hinge between the door and range/oven body
2. Close door and gently push like you try to close completely.
3. Try several times.
4. Open door, remove towels and see if it helps
5. If not replace hinges

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Oven door removal

Most residential oven doors are removable by taking out two screws of each hinge. Located on the door on left n Right sides where the hinge slides into the door. These also are the way to adjust the door by loosening n then snug the screws, close the door. Adjust it, then carefully open without affecting your adjustment. Then tighten the screws. When removing the door MAKE SURE THE DOOR IS FULLY OPENED. THE HINGES ARE SPRING LOADED N WILL SNAP BACK.

Door adjust for 71 Chev C20

  • Open the door and locate the two hinges where the door pivots from the vehicle.
  • 2Look for any wear or bending on either hinge. The hinge that looks bent or otherwise damaged will be the one you want to adjust.
  • 3
    Loosen the bolts with the socket wrench on the affected hinge just enough to where it could be moved with the pry bar.
  • 4Move the hinge forward or backward in small increments, then gently try to close the door to see if it is back in alignment. If it isn't, continue to move it either frontward or backward until the door closes securely and without slamming.

    Door adjustment for a 96 f350 dropped about 1/2"

    Here's the solution: You might want to park it under a tree and tie a rope to the door to pull it up when loosened.
    ADJUSTMENT Fig. 1: Door hinge adjustment 84920001.gif
    Fig. 2: Rear door hinge adjustment, F-350 Crew Cab 84920002.gif
    NOTE: Loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
    1. Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
    2. To move the door safely, use a padded prybar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19–25 ft. lbs. (25.5–34.5 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
    3. Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.

    Cooker delonghi professional dfs903 6 ring hob has terible fan like noise whenever you turn the oven on which has now become unbearable and occurs whether using the grill, the oven on fan setting or not....

    i had the same problem, the noise is coming from a circular fan located under the hob itself. not from the fan at the back of the oven.its a cooling fan.i bought a new one online around £70 and got a local gas fitter to install it. its a real big job and most if not all of the gas connections to the hob have to be disconnected its a big job.but worth it.
    i have the same problem with the door,thats what im looking for.
    if i find a solution ill let you know

    Delonghi professional dfs903 cooker

    have a Delonghi dual fuel DTC90DF range.
    The oven has been temperamental for a whil, working then clicking off so that you had to turn it on again and it would work for a while again. Eventually there was a bit of smoke coming through the hob and it smelt of electrical burning and stopped working all together. It is the main fan oven that is now not working.
    Please help

    Door not closing properly.

    take door off and pack bottom hinge with washers. make sure hingebrackets on cabinet are tight. however, door hanging a bit should not really affect sealing. if seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently
