I have a Competence B 6139-4-m electric oven. the door does not close properly, have tried cleaning it as intruction manual suggests, the heat escaping from the oven has scorched my cupboards


the fault is unlikely to be the actual oven unit so therefore in order of least expense the things to check are:- the door seal being complete, the hinges not having been forced, the door not being buckled, self adhesive universal seals are available online from *spares etc. Hinges are easy to remove from the cooker and then can be unscrewed from the door and replaced. if it's the door I would have to say that's less likely to be available for a sensible price.

Freezer door does not close tightly.


You can try replacing the seals and or adjusting the hinges.
That may work.

Be aware that if the unit is over 10 years old it is probably using twice as much power as a new one would and costing you an extra $75 to $100 annually to run over a new unit. Could be more than that if the door seals are not tight as well.

Oven door won't close tightly


Sounds like whoever installed your oven hasn't adjusted your door properly and as a result over time probley got worse? any way there should be 3 screws on each hinge the top and bottom screws hold the door in place the screws under the top ones are used for making adjustment with a Philips head screw driver open the door and try screwing in clockwise 2 or 3 full turns and with your free hand feel if the door is moving upward if so repeat the same on the other side and then close the door and see if its made a difference if so and its still loose try again if its made it worse the turn the screws in the opposite direction Let me know if this works

Oven Doors will not stay closed all the way


I think this is a cheapest and eat way to fix your oven doors... Otherwise there are 2 spring type locks of the door that starts getting old day by day ... You have to change the pair of lock only

Oven door hinge adjustment...?


Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.

Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?

Bosch HBL745A Oven door


My husband just figured this out.

- Follow Door removal instruction from the manual.
- There is a screw at the end of the hinge that can be adjusted.
- Adjust the screw to desired height.
- Secure lock nut.
