Question about Bosch HBL 742 / HBL 746 Electric Single Oven
We had the hinges replaced; worked for a few weeks, now the same.
Cannot even clean oven - door will not lock !
We read the 'hinge/screw tightening' solution, but don't know where the screw is located - - is it the 2 screws on the wall of the oven or?? exactly where are they located compared to the hinge itself?
We agree - calling Bosch is absolutely no help (nor Sears, where we purchased the product).
On our oven (Bosch Evolution 700 Series HGS7152UC), the problem was getting worse and worse. I found it is was worsening simply because the hinges had started to come loose. I removed the door as suggested above, and although there are no adjustment screws on this model I tightened the now-loose hinge mounting screws. For each hinge there are three screws altogether: two (phillips heads) on the bottom of the door and one (torx head) on the inside wall of the door. After tightening those screws it is a lot better, only leaks as much heat as it did when it was new which is tolerable. Still a bad design.
