The oven door hinge on the right side just started squeaking a little while ago, what can I use to lubricate it? The oven is in use about 4 years now and it is level.
Magic Chef,, just three years old, oven door screeches upon opening. When hot, it's worse, but also squeaks slightly when cool. Tried WD-40, my favorite, even with the thin tube attachment to reach far within the hinge. Worked 'til I used the oven once, then back to fingernails on blackboard. Thanks in advance?

I understand you are having trouble putting the door back on your Frigidaire wall oven. Without knowing exactly how you removed the door I cannot say with certainty how to reattach the door. However, when removing the door did you pull up the lock located on both hinge supports and engage it in the hinge lever hooks? You might have had to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully over the hinge lever hooks. Then grab the door by the sides and pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports. If so, then to reattached the door grab the door by the sides; place the hinge supports in the hinge slots. Open the door to the fully opened position. Disengage the lock from the hinge lever hooks on both sides. Make sure the hinge supports are fully engaged before unlocking the hinge levers. Then close the oven door. There are instructions with images to remove and replace the oven door in the owner's manual. I hope this information proves helpful for you.
the door is removed with the hinges in place. with the door open, lock the hinge sections together with the little clips on lowest hinge section. When locked, lift up on the door (not the handle) sides, swinging it up until it can be pulled out. Install in reverse order.

Hello. Get a can of a penetrating lubricant called WD-40 with a tiny tube applicator included. Open the door and you will see part of each hinge where the door meets the appliance case. Spray the penetrating lube on the exposed part of the hinge and then open and close the door a few times. Repeat as necessary. J.
Open the door and look at the bottom hinge. There is a plastic piece between the door and the hinge, this is called a cam, it helps keep the door in different positions. The cam should not move when the door moves, if it does you should be able to tighten the screw holding it on. If it does not move then a little lubricant on that cam should help.
I have the SMEG F170-5 and had this problem after cleaning and replacing the door. It wouldn't heat unless I banged it shut. This action made the internal switch trigger, so I had to remove the oven (4 screws, slide out) and remove the right side panel (4 screws). The switch is actuated by the right hinge strut and it must have become bent slightly. I bent it a bit towards the door so that it would just a little bit more likely to make the switch trigger with the door closed and it now works fine.
