Question about Ovens
My oven door wouldn't close completely (about 1/2" gap)and left the oven light on. I replaced the door hinges, and it worked beautifully for 2 days. Something happened and now the door stays open about 2 inches and, when opening completely, it drops down beyond where it normally sits. I don't know if the new hinges are defective or if something else may be causing this issue.

SOURCE: Oven door stays slightly open
The unit may be out of plumb ( square to the floor ). I suggest you get a level and make sure the stove/oven is level and if it's not, there are some levelers ( where legs would be on the bottom ) that can be adjusted with needle nose pliers or a cresent wrench. If this doesn'e work, you may have some hinges sprung and need to replace them. Good Luck

Hinges may need to be replaced. Rule of thumb, if one is changed, change the other as well. Also try WD40 open and close continuously, it may be stuck. But you will eventually have to change the hinges. Good luck.

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
