I recently had a small spring go on the oven door, but before I could put it in, the left side started sticking towards the open position. It is getting harder to open and close now, even with the spr

I would look for something more like a larger spring that the small spring was regulating. The door being askew would suggest that there is some tension that is no longer in place.

I have a Bakers pride y-600 oven . What is the best way for top door to be taken off ??

On the left side, remove the knobs and cover. The spring holding the door closed needs to be removed. Have someone hold the door closed while removing the door spring. Now let the door open and you will see two screws holding the door to the door rod assembly on the left side. These screws are usually 9/16. After removing the two screws, the door will pull off the door pin that is located on the right side.

Hi the right hand hinge of the door has popped out whilst I was trying to move the oven using the door handle as leverage. The door is now wonky when closed as the hinged has popped out. Help!

All oven door typically lift off the hinges by design. If you open the door to what is referred as the broil position. You know when the door stops about 4 to 6 inches open at the top. Then do the following.

1. Lift the door up completely off the opposite hinge still in place and remove. Set the door aside carefully as if has glass window, you do not want to break.

2. Then set both hinges at the broiler stop position. If one is all the way in to door fully closed position pull it out with your hand or with pliers till it stops @ broiler position. If all the way down as if door was fully open, lift hinge until it stops at broiler position. CAUTION- THE HINGES ARE SPRING LOADED AND CAN SNAP BACK INTO FULLY CLOSED POSITION. You can use a heavy glove or if you have an oven mitten, that can work to protect your fingers. DO NOT GET YOUR FINGERS BETWEEN HINGE AND OVEN OR CAN PINCH FINGERS.

3. Now carefully lift the door over the hinges set at the broiler position. Careful not to bump them when doing so or can snap closed. If does, reset hinge to broiler position and repeat. Works best to hold door at angle that door is when in broiler position. Once you have them started evenly, you should be able to fully slide down back onto both hinges.

4. If one of the hinges no longer has spring tension you have to reattach the spring. You can usually access spring if needed by removing the bottom drawer.

We have a classique oven and it wont close properly. It stays open about 25-30mm can you please give us advice? thanks

I presume the gap you are talking about is at the top of the oven door. If so, this means that the door springs are worn/lost their tension. The only way to fix this is to get the springs replaced.

Oven door won't close completely

You will probably have to replace the springs I doubt if they can ve fixed. you can open the door all the way and you will see a hole in the spring just inside the door. you can stick a nail in that hole, both springs that will hold the door open and you can lift the door out and check the springs I will tell you to have patience its not easy.

The door hangs loose. so much so that it feels as though the heat is escaping

You need new door closing hardware. The springs that hold tension
against the door to keep it closed are worn and need to be replaced.

The lower door does not close firmly. It seems like the spring load is weak. Is there a way to improve the spring tension? I have model CM302ZS (Microwave/convection oven on top and convection oven on...

There is no provision made for adjustment of springs,
I'm afraid the only solution is to replace both door springs.
Trust this helps solve your priblem.

I am unable to have the door close fully

Sometimes those springs hang on a hook with "notches" so that you can increase the tension by moving to a higher notch. If they don't have any adjustment on them, and you just put a replacement spring on I'd start looking other places for the problem first. If you got the closest springs they had at the hardware store, then you can increase the tension by curling down (thus shortening) the hook ends of the spring with long nose pliers. On a strong spring like an oven spring this will be kind of difficult.

Make sure there isn't any rubbing or other problem going on with the hinges... sometimes just a couple drops of 3 in 1 oil will do the trick.
