Do yu mean the front door has pulled off it's hinges on one side or both ? if you hold the door on a angle about 12" open then press down towards the floor it will go back into place , if not you may have bent the hinges and the will have to be replaced
Open oven door. Flip metal holder down at hinge to lock hinge. Lift door with hinge attached up slightly and off oven. Reverse to re-install door, making sure notch at bottom of hinge is hooked in frame of oven properly.
your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something
heavy on it...), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and
straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by
opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the
entire door straight up. If
the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to
replace them. We recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to
prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.
Most if not all Thermador owners manuals have this outlined in them, however, here you go.
Removing the Oven Door
Fully open the oven door.
Raise the U-clip over the hook on each of the hinges to the "locked" position (see illustration below). This will prevent the hinge from snapping closed when the door is removed.
Grasp the door by the sides toward the back. Raise the front of the door several inches (there will be some spring resistance to overcome because of the hinge being locked). When the front of the door is high enough, you will be able to lift the hinges to clear the indents.
Pull the hinges out of the slots in the oven front frame.
To Replace the Oven Door
Grasp the sides of the door at the center and insert the ends of the hinges into the slots in the oven front frame as far as they will go (see illustration below).
With the door open all the way, lower the two locking clips.
Raise the oven door and make sure that it fits evenly with the front sides.
DOOR HINGE WARNING:
**CAUTION** With the door off, never release the levers and try to close the hinges. Without the weight of the door, the powerful springs will snap the hinges closed with great force.
Let me know how you make out or if anything is unclear. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.
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.
I have the SMEG F170-5 and had this problem after cleaning and replacing the door. It wouldn't heat unless I banged it shut. This action made the internal switch trigger, so I had to remove the oven (4 screws, slide out) and remove the right side panel (4 screws). The switch is actuated by the right hinge strut and it must have become bent slightly. I bent it a bit towards the door so that it would just a little bit more likely to make the switch trigger with the door closed and it now works fine.
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.
