    I have the same problem - the oven door will not close tightly, allowing heat to escape which is becoming very dangerous and is extremely inefficient.  How do I fix this problem?

You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.

Oven door does not close properly


When you say "oven door does not close properly", do you mean that it closes but not tightly against the rubber seal on the oven cavity?
Or is it some other closing problem?

If it is the former, then it is a sign of the door hinge springs wearing out. The solution to this is to replace both hinges on the offending door.

Oven door will not shut tight at top


The door is not tight per say. The seal is hat determines if it is properly closed. Check to see if the seal is tight all the way around(use a strip of paper to check consistency). If it is not sealing the hinges are tweeked and need replacing.

Range door will not seal properly.


Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinges..
Push on the door, carefully.
This usually works to re-seat the door hinges.

Freezer door does not close tightly.


You can try replacing the seals and or adjusting the hinges.
That may work.

Be aware that if the unit is over 10 years old it is probably using twice as much power as a new one would and costing you an extra $75 to $100 annually to run over a new unit. Could be more than that if the door seals are not tight as well.

Kemore oven door signal


The door switch is faulty or not closing.Without the model the switch may be in different places.where the door closes check to see if theres a button if there is thats the switch.regardless look around the seal of where the door shuts for the switch.When you do find it simply disconnect the wires from the switch (there should be 2) and put them together.this should solve your issue.

Oven door just barely closes- light stays on


put a tea towel on both sides of the door [folded] down by the hinges then close door. gently push the door close try a few times with a little pressure.
