Question about Bosch HBL 742 / HBL 746 Electric Single Oven

Bosch Oven Door Problem - doesn't close at top

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).
Thank you.

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.

Hi I have a Bosch Double Oven/convection Oven I


Don't know but have you tried the old tea towel in the corners trick to see if its the hinge alignment and not the seal? Put two tea towels in the lower corners sticking out of the oven part way and push the oven door closed a few times. Saved me from trying to replace the seal.

Replace oven door seal


It will not be the door seal at fault. More likely is that the hinges are worn out or strained.

After changing the right door hinge on my bosch hbl455auc the door closes but the upper oven door is 1/8 lower at right top than left. How can I realign the door to level?


There are adjustment screws or bolts on the hinge attachments to the oven. Loosen them and adjust the door using wedges to hold the door in place.

Oven door will not close completely no tension.siemens 6 hob.


I told bosch which is the same as siemens that the door hinges are defective. I even told them how to fix the problem without changing the hinges .If you add three washers on each hinge this will bring the door in to close the same for the bosch ranges. ps ex tech:)

Either you have not refitted the door back correctly, or the door hinge springs are weak, a common problem.
This being the case, then the only solution is to replace door hinges.

Heat escaping, uneven baking, longer cooking times


Either the seals need to be replaced, or you may have weak oven door hinges, and the door is not closing properly.
Only solution would be to replace both hinges if this is the case.

Bosch HBL 645 oven door won't close all the way


I am afraid that the door hinges are non adjustable, and the only solution is to replace them as a pair.
There should be some kind of latch mechanism at the end of the hinge
where it is fastened to the door to compress the hinge to enable you to remove them.
Hope this helps.
