SOURCE: Hotpoint BS 21 fan oven Broken door hinge

Pull the door down as far as it will go, and at the lower end of the hinges, there you should see what looks like 2 round discs, with a step cut out, rotate the discs with a scewdriver as far as they will go,then close the door and pull it towards you, the door should then pull off.
Replace both hinges, not just the one ,or it will close unevenly.
Slot the hinges back into the hinge slots, pull the door down, rotate the disc back to their original setting, and that should be it.
Plz rate this solution. Thanks.

Pull the door completely off and re-insert the door on the hinge supports.

SOURCE: door does not seal, hinge looks fractured

you'll probably need to replace the whole door and hinges. the internal springs (inside the door) may have failed and allowed the door to drop and damage the hinges. don't believe it's fixable, but is replaceable.
at what cost, i can't guess- even if the parts are still available! compare the cost of fixing to the cost of replacing!
good luck!

Yes it sound like your hinges are worn. They are not adjustable but can be replaced. If you send me the model no (usually starts with a U) then I may be able to either give you the part number or order them for you. They are quite easy to replace.

How to clean between the glass on my oven doors, do you remove the doors or what & how do the doors come off

Most ovens...

(use of "TYPICAL"...
means no make/mode ... year provided
(TYPICALLY used for useful/meaningful answers))

Check the hinges st the door for a lift tab assembly...

Poor preparation & mishandling usually RESULTS in
droppingbreaking one or BOTH of the Window glasses...

If you are going to DISMANTLE without the aide
of OWNERS/SERVICE manuals...

Skip over the taking apart... dropping...
breaking... and JUST go ONLINE to attempt
to find crystal clear/clean REPLACEMENT parts...

With LUCK you will TYPICALLY find only
the INSIDE GLASS replacement...

IF available... (not likely) you will find they are
unreasonably EXPENSIVE...

>> NOW you are ready to disconnect

- Clean the oven (
see owner's manual).
- Put a drop-cloth on the family room carpet
- Remove the door /(at the hinges)...
- move the door close to the floor...
- Disassemble DOOR on the drop cloth...!!

NOW you are ready to disconnect
Treat the GLASS as a precious commodity...
Clean with 1/5 (foo-grade) white vinegar 4/5
water & 4 - 5 drops of DAWN dish detergent.

Polished wit BAKING SODA with water...

Wear rubber gloves to leave no greasy

You will be proud...
(albeit much-much happier giving makes & models)

What parts do i need to fix the hinge on my oven door

If it is a drop down door, then you need to replace both door hinges complete to obtain a satisfactory repair.

The bottom oven door does not completely shutThere is a gap from which heat escapes.The door shuts but then drops open a very little way when pressure is relinquished

When the door is open, you will see some small cross head screws near where the hinges go into the door. These should be tight. If they are, then it could be the hinge failing. Try espares for a new set of hinges, but be warned you will have to take the entire oven out of its housing and both side panels off to get the the hinges.

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.

The hinge on our westinghouse silhouett oven door may be damaged as the door will not give a tight seal can it be repaired or replaced and how, the rest of the oven works like new.

If it is a drop down door, then the hinges are not repairable, the only solution is to replace both door hinges, and not just the broken one.
Hope this helps.

I need to remove oven door, cant figure out how

drop the door down as low as it will go look carefully at the hinges as they pass through into the oven chassis you will see a clip on each one that you lift up to lock the hinge you usually lift them up as far as they will go then this will lock the hinges as you close the door the hinges will come away from the oven complete with door.... reverse to refit.

Neff oven door (U1661)

The door is v heavy and the hinges being right at the bottom take a lot of strain, especially when the door is in 'half open' position. Once the springs start to wear the hinges are no longer strong enough to hold the top of the door firmly closed. Our U1661 is 8 years old and we've had the hinges replaced twice under extended warranty. The second time the hinges they supplied don't hold the door in this position and it will just drop straight down if you don't support it while you open it.

Main oven door will not close properly. Is there any adjustment for it.

This comment applies to most electric ovens that have drop down doors with hinges at the bottom.
The hinges are not adjustable, and in every case the problem is caused by one or both hinge springs being weak.
The only solution, is to replace both oven door hinges together.
