Question about Frigidare FGB24S5DC Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

Door hinges appear to be sprung

The door does not close completely, consequently the oven will not pre heat correctly. The switch that would be engaged by shuting the door does not engage, so the light stays on. Does that switch also effect the oven elements as well as the light?

Can sprung hinges be repaired or replaced?

Oven is only 2 years old.

Oven door seems sprung as if a spring may be shot and door dose not close all the way?


You need to replace both oven door hinges, as the springs are weak, and there is no adjustment available.

Kenmore 790.49073400 oven door won't close completely


Hello- You are on the right track. The hinge assemblies are 'sprung' or bent out of shape. Replacing them is pretty easy, so you can do it yourself. Four screws on each side. Be careful, these springs can snap closed and bite ya. Use the little pins that come with the new set to lock hinge so this doesn't happen. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Oven takes forever to heat up - its a thermador double oven - me272


Hello- Check these things first-  Door seals tend to get stiff over time. This is normal. Door hinges can become loose or get bent a bit, causing door to not close tight. This little gap can allow heat to escape, causing extended pre-heat times and frequent cycling of elements. If door doesn't seem to pull shut tightly- hinges will need to be replaced. If oven appears to operate normally otherwise, this should solve problem.  Let me know if the info helps- have more if needed- Thanks  - Ed

Kleenmaid Stainless Steel oven door will not close properly.


The door hinge is probaly broken or could just be the spring. Open the door to the 45 degree position (halfway) and pull on the door. It should come off the hinge assembly. Slide out the oven a little to access the screws for the hinge to see what is broken or wore out.

Replaced hinge on smeg double oven but now oven doesn't heat


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.

Oven door not closing correctly


I had the same type of problem. I unhinged the door then disassembled the door (it's really quite easy)
after you take all the TORX screws out the everything comes apart! Don't worry about the screws putting them back is a snap! Now that you have the door apart take the door hinges out of the inner door plate.
If you look at then closely they will have a slight bend in them. Pay attention to how they would have been positioned on the door! Simply bend them slightly I used the edge of a step! My door now shuts completely! I hope this info helps many of you having the same problem! If you take the time it really is amazing how easy it is to solve the door issue! Thanks to my buddy RON.

Oven light


Heat causes metal to expand. Expanding metal can make contact with other objects, like a ground that completes a circuit. Take the lamp assembly apart and check for exposed conductors. Also, check the door switch. If it is heating up and something within the switch is expanding then the switch may be closing due to heat. With the door open puch the switch all the way in and see if the light goes off. If it does then replace the switch.
