GE ZET1038 Oven Door Won't Close

My GE Monogram ZET1038 Oven door does not close all of the way.  It closes about 95%, but does not appear to have the spring to pull the door all the way closed.  The oven still works however.

    Exactly the same problem, and can't find our book. Somebody please help.

    We got the door off - here is how - open the oven door slightly approximately 2 inches and pull straight up. No screws to loosen, lock handle, etc, it comes right off.... Now what - I am going to see if there is an adjustment screw then put the door back on... Same problem, but at least we can see it a little better.

    I have the same problem on the equivalent doors on a double oven. We are on our fourth service call to replace the hinges. The service techs tell us that the hinges are not properly designed for the weight of the doors and as a result will not pull the door closed. My next step is to file suit against GE for a defective product.

    I posted the original problem with my oven. There doesn't seem to be a solution to this problem. It unfortunate there is no solution. Will keep checking....

SOURCE: top oven door will not close..appears left hinge

The problem will be caused the hinge spring being broken or weak.
The only solution is to replace both oven door hinges to ensure a satisfactory repair.

SOURCE: my oven doors wont close all the way

When the door came open you may have bent the hinges. Open the door fully and it should stop at 90 degrees. If lower than that, then the hinges are bent and will need replaced. Also you may look at the install directions and see if your model shows removing the door. If it is removable for install, you can try removing and reinstalling the door. It is possible with removable doors for them to slide up during install and then they are out of alignment for closing. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: oven door does not close

I had the same problem. The first time the Tech. came out, put a new hinge in and it held until Nov. 07. ( 8 months ). Then the left hinge brakes when I opend the door and it crashes to the floor. Bending the right hinge and the metal doorliner. Jan.7,08 everything was fixed. On 1/11 after no more then 10 openings & closings the hinge broke again. This time I heard the crack of the braking metal after opening the door 2 inches. It now sits in my kitchen propped-up with a stick, waiting for the repairman. I am sorry I have no solution , but there must be a problem with the hinges. I forgot to tell you that it started with a door that did not close, like yours.

Kleenmaid Stainless Steel oven door will not close properly.


The door hinge is probaly broken or could just be the spring. Open the door to the 45 degree position (halfway) and pull on the door. It should come off the hinge assembly. Slide out the oven a little to access the screws for the hinge to see what is broken or wore out.

Ge double oven


I believe this is because it takes a while for your oven to cool down (the cleaning cycle uses a very high temperature to burn up the grease and food). The timer is how long it takes before it will be cool, at which time the oven will unlock.
