You will need 2 new door hinges as they go weak after a time.and people tend to rest things on the door when open this will also weaken the hinges.they can be puchashed and fitted by anyone who is handy.(ie) not a big job only a few screws..hope this helps

GE under oven drawer sags, won t close properly, big gap exists between drawer face and oven door.


Don't look too hard for a solution to the problem. I have seen this same issue with three or four other manufacturers brand stoves. Not sure why they can't build a drawer that won't bind and stick, but they seemingly cannot.

Kebs208dss11 model double oven. When upper oven is on with door closed, steam can be seen escaping from top of door. Door is closed all the way. Even when putting pressure on door to make sure it is...


The first thing I'd suspect is a poorly fitting door seal / gasket. This will permit the heat inside the oven to escape. Check to be sure the the one installed is defective (cut, split, frayed, dislodged, etc.) Replacement parts:

Make sure this is the part you need before ordering.

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.

Oven takes forever to heat up - its a thermador double oven - me272


Hello- Check these things first-  Door seals tend to get stiff over time. This is normal. Door hinges can become loose or get bent a bit, causing door to not close tight. This little gap can allow heat to escape, causing extended pre-heat times and frequent cycling of elements. If door doesn't seem to pull shut tightly- hinges will need to be replaced. If oven appears to operate normally otherwise, this should solve problem.  Let me know if the info helps- have more if needed- Thanks  - Ed

WON'T HEAT OR CLOSE DOOR PROPERLY. ALL ELSE SEEMS OK


Well firstly if the door wont close properly you shouldnt use this device as if you are in the kitchen whilst it is in use your slowly cooking yourself . If the door is open microwaves can escape and that is Radiation Lethal if you get too much or too close ?.
The reason it is not heating is probably because most of the microwaves are escaping and not bouncing around your oven cooking your food .. but actually bouncing around your home cooking you . My advise to you is get it repaired by a qualified Domestic appliance engineer or bin it and get a new one ..
