SOURCE: DOOR PROBLEM

I am not sure about your oven model.  I had a similar problem in my oven.  The hinges are riveted to the oven and can be fixed.

First remove the oven door - normally the door slides on to two prongs on either side and is screwed down.

 

Once the door is removed check the mechanism that holds the two prongs to the oven body.  Mine were held with stainless steel rivets that had worn out and became wobbly.  Cut the rivets and replace them with new ones.  You can get a rivet driver and the stainless steel rivets for under $20 at Home Depot. 

 

Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: thermador oven (c301u) door hinges weak, how to install new hinge

This is a relatively easy fix however you will need to remove the door and it is heavy!

Start by opening the door completely and engage the small "locks" that are at the base of the hinge. This will ensure that the spring loaded hinges do not "spring open" when you remove the door. You then will need to remove the hinges from the door via a series of phillips head screws that hold the hinge assembly in place. The new hinges must be "preloaded" into the Open position using a vise or some means of holding the hinge in place while you use a small section of pipe to provide leverage needed to open the hinge so that the Locks can be engaged.

Once the new hinges are "pre-loaded" and the locks are engaged, you can reverse the procedure to re-install the hinges into the door and re-install the door.

Good luck!!

The hinges are commercially avaialble from Applianceparts.com

Oven door handle is loose on Model RF366BXD self cleaning range, how do we tighten the door handle?


Extend your door hinges and remove entirely over to a table or other flat surface where you can do a step-by-step dis-assembly. Unfortunately, to get at the interior of the handle unit, it's the final stage of the taking apart. Begin by removing the bolts at the bottom of the door, then the main panel and side flanges can be removed. (You can give your glass a good cleaning at this point also.) There are 2 bolts to remove to free up the handle unit, and now you can easily tighten (or replace as needed) the 2 pairs of handle bolts. Reverse your order to re-assemble, and put your door back on the oven. It's not as bad an exercise as it would appear. Just take your time and watch what you're doing. I used the hinges as a shim, and had it laid out on a pool table for easy, elevated examination.

I have preloaded the replacement hinge, but it appears that to remove the old hinge it must be unloaded. If that is true, how do you load the new hinge while it is on the door?


Ovens come in many varieties including freestanding units and stacked models that are inserted into a wall. Kitchen oven units that get a lot of use or are getting old may have problems develop, such as a loose or squeaky door which may require replacing the hinges. You can replace the hinges on the door to your oven by first removing the door from the rest of the oven.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Screwdriver
  1. Step 1 Open the oven door and examine the hinges to see how the they are secured to the door. Some oven doors slide into the hinge assembly or have a locking mechanism that secures the door to a latch on the main unit.
  2. Step 2 Remove the door from the oven by disengaging the locking mechanism and then pull the oven door out. You may need to release a catch on the door or remove a pin from a hole in the hinge.
  3. Step 3 Place the door on a flat surface such as a table or the floor.
  4. Step 4 Remove the screws that hold the sections of the door together to access the hinges.
  5. Step 5 Remove the hinges from the door. The hinges may be attached to the door with screws or they may be held in place when the door sections are tightened or secured.
  6. Step 6 Insert the new hinges into the door and secure them with the screwdriver or place the section of door back on. Tighten all of the screws securing the sections together.
  7. Step 7 Place the oven door back into place by sliding it on the same way that it came off.

The door handle has come appart. How does the


I'm not mechanically-inclined, but the frustration of an oven handle hanging by one side prompted me to try to become mechanical. Remove the entire door from the oven by working the hinges. Then put it on a flat surface (I used a pool table) and let the hinges act as a shim. Remove the bolts from the bottom edge and lift out the main panel and the end flanges. Carefully set the glass aside and it's an opportune time to clean it. You'll see two bolts which hold the door handle assembly in-place. Upon removing those, you'll finally be able to get at those interior door handle bolts. One of mine was missing a lock washer. I found adequate replacement parts and then reversed the process to re-assemble the door and place it back on the oven. This seems to be a common defect with this model, and it's unfortunate that the handle's bolts can't be assessed more easily, but when you go at it systematically, it wasn't as difficult as I had feared.

What is the process for reattaching a oven door handle? is it glued on, or does it require screws?

I need to clean between glass plate and oven door on my Zanussi electric cooker. I have drips where I've wiped the door over, also there is dust in between. Model ZBF 360W, Serial 61705615, Prod. No....


Hi,

The following worked on my zbf360x built in Zanussi.
First you need to remove the oven door. To do this open the door half way. On each hinge there are two small metal flaps. Lift both of these. Now with the door still half open pull hard on the door. You will find the hinges spring and if you release the pull now it will just spring back. When the hinges spring give an extra hard pull on one side and then the other each hinge should pop out.
Once you have the door off just remove the small screws on the bottom of the door to allow it to hinge open and clean the inside glass.

Hope this helps,

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.
