Go to this site http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=KAD
type in your model number (or at least one that is close) and look up the directions for removing and reinstalling the oven door. Sometimes you have to open the door fully after reinstalling to get the mechanism to work correctly.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

I removed the oven door and took out the hinge to clean. When I tried to put the hinge and oven door back the hinge will not close it is stuck. How do I unlock or hook the hinge so my oven door closesI


You will have to pull the oven dorr up and out again, it might be a little hard to pull but the door didn't went in straight and it's preventing the hinge from closing. go to repairclinic.com for an ilustration on how the door and hinges fit in place.

How to remove door for whirlpool oven RBS305PDB2


open the door about 1/3 of the way and lift it off the hinge pins. it helps to have two people do this. when it is time to replace it, put the hinges in that 1/3 open position and slide the door back down on.

Doors don't shut all the way and light stays on


It sounds like your door hinges are worn, usually on older ovens due to weight of door. Most oven doors can be removed by simply raising the tabs/ fitting small screwdriver on both hinges(refer to user manual) etc. Once door is removed you can place a medium size screwdriver or similar in the hinge slot, pushing the hinge plate on the bottom in an outward direction, thereby bending this plate(very slightly) forward. This will make the door close fully, activating the door switch, and turning off the oven light. This is only a short term solution, as this hot air escaping can lead to further problems. Hinge pair will need replacing. Door hinges are spring loaded ALWAYS KEEP FINGERS AND HANDS CLEAR OF LOADED HINGES.

Thermador oven door won't close all the way - seems like the seal is holding it open. I can press and hold it closed, but if I release, it pops out. The oven light stays on all the time. Model smw272


Have exactly the same situation. All the solutions I have seen talk about replacing the hinges or seal. But people report the same thing happens a month later. Looking hard at the door what it needs is something to pull it right at the top. So I installed a rare earth magnet from www.kjmagnetics.com I used part number BX884DCS which costs $4. It mounts with a couple of screws and I put it on the door a couple of inches down from the top.
Its possible that heat from the oven will kill the magnet over time but for $4 I can replace it for a lot less than hinges and it works great. The door closes more securely than it ever did when the oven was new.
Hope this helps.

Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinge location.
Carefully apply pressure on the door to push the door closed.
This will often re-set range door hinges.

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.
