I had the same thing just occur. GE is now telling me the only fix is to buy a new range. Great. $10K for a range that I use once.

Oven door will not remain fully closed


Noiselab is not correct for all cases. As Buzz says, if the springs are strong then the foil fix works and works really well. Refer to attached photo for guidance in conjunction with instructions below. Note my possibly simpler answer at bottom.

I cut some short narrow strips (about 4mm x 20 mm) from a tin can and folded them over into a flattened "U". You can back off the large Phillips head screw on the frame of the oven where the door hinges are inserted and sit the tin over the little plate that is held by these screws and then tighten so that one end of the "U" sits between the oven chassis and the adjustment plate. If it still doesn't quite close add more tin as required. Refer photo for terminology.

Now the simpler solution which I didn't try but which would probably work after I contemplated the problem in retrospect is this. The reason I didn't think of this was that I thought the hinge went into a tube or slot. Later I realised it is just a simple cantilever design which is why the tin foil solution works (ie lifting the middle support of the cantilever produces a corresponding closure of the door). When I inspected the large Phillips head screws to insert the tin foil these were completely loose. Try this first then. Slide the adjustment plate up as high as the tolerance of the Phillips screw allows and then tighten it off hard. This will raise the bottom edge of the plate just as the tin foil method does. If not enough then proceed to the tin foil method.

Does putting tin foil on the bottom of the oven reduce the life of the element


No. That must be an old wives tale. Never heard of it. The problem with foil on the oven bottom is it gets covered with grease and may fire-up. Now on the other hand if your oven catches fire from grease build-up on the foil, well that will shorten the elements life and maybe yours.

How do I remove tin foil baked on brand new oven bottom?


Unfortunately you can't remove that foil, you will end up doing more damage to the liner. the only thing you can do is replace the liner. And it's a big job, if the manufacture makes a replacement part for your unit, and if they do it will be costly. Your warranty will not cover it.

Yes, we were a couple of dummys when we received our brand new LG stove, with convection oven,glass top and very fancy, and we put tin foil to cover the bottom of the stove and of course yesterday when I...


I really don't know what to tell you. During the clean cycyle the metal probably melted and is permantly sealed to the bottom. You are lucky the oven still works. Sometimes using foil will destroy sensors or other things. NEVER use foil in ANY oven!!!!! The only exception is to partially cover the shelf underneath something you know is going to make a mess. Even then don't cover more than about 60% of the rack.(Never do this in a convection oven as the fan will blow the foil ) Also NEVER!!! allow foil to come in contact with a hot burner. It will melt to the smooth top or coil.
