The springs in the hinges are probably tired. There is no adjustment you need to buy new hinges for about $50 for a set. Changing the hinges is a fairly simple operation for a person of average dexterity. I've just done the job on our oven.

Simpson Atlas Apollo ceramic top stove, Digital clock etc. Just installed. No user guide to set clock etc. Oven wont work, suspect clock needs setting. Can I get a user guide?


Hello, I think I have the same oven as you, and yes the oven doesn't seem to work unless the clock has been set.

On my oven, there are 4 buttons and a dial below the digital clock.
To set the clock, you need to turn the dial whilst holding any two of the 4 buttons down.

For me it's a two handed job.

Cheers,

Michael

Adjustment to door hinge, as door does not close completely


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

Oven door hinge adjustment...?


Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.

Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?
