    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.

I have a Kenmore elite model #32623 790.3262 . Nothing was done ,no cleaning not even used. came home to DOOR OPN on indicator screen.


Hello. If the door hinges are weak due to wear, they might not be holding the door tightly enough prevent the switch from activating and signaling the door is open. If you pushed the door closed and the indication went away, the springs are probably too worn. The part number for the hinges is 139014301 and you will need to purchase two of them. If the door switch itself is defective, then the part number needed is 316445501. I hope I helped you!

No. It sounds as if the door springs have gotten weak. With the complete model number there are several reputable appliance parts companies on line that you can order from. Hope this helps. Rick

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.

I have a frigidaire oven model# FEF366DCB, the oven door does not close completely, it appears the the door is a little low so that seal does not sit in the grove can this be adjusted or do i have to buy...


THEY NEVER SIT REAL TIGHT,BUT SOME CAN.TAKE A TEMPERATURE (SAY 250)AND SEE IF IT HOLDS.THE IDEA IS TO SEE IF YOUR LOSING HEAT OR JUST BAKE SOMETHING TO SEE IF IT IS UNDERCOOKED.YOU CAN CHANGE THE HINGE IF YOU WANT TO BUT I DONT THINK IT IS NEEDED.

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.
