How do I remove oven door


open the oven door all the way and look down at the hinges. there is a little locking clip that you swing into position that locks the hinge from closing. it might be stiff and need some cleaning depending on how old and dirty your oven is. Also you might have to push down on the oven door to make the hinge open fully to get the locking tabs into place. making shore that the locking clips stay in place and hold open the hinge as you lift the oven door slowly towards its closing position and you will see the whole hinge lift up from inside the oven cabinet and the door will just lift out. be careful not to catch your fingers. make sure the looking tabs stay in place during removal as the hinge is very hard to get back into this position again. re fitting is the reversal making sure that you have pushed the base of the door all the way back into the cabinet and push down on the as to open it to release the tabs.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

Oven door won't stay closed


You don't state the exact model but on every oven I've ever fixed this problem on it's a broken door striker catch. Depending on your model, the catch will either be in the oven door or in the oven body; usually they're straightforward to replace but on older ovens spares can be almost as rare as dodo ****. Usually what breaks is a hardened tempered metal spring, so when they're not available as spares I can usually visit a local spring making company and get someone to make one up as a one-off using the fragments of the old one as a pattern. After the catch has been replaced the striker itself (usually a specially shaped pin) may need to be adjusted to engage correctly once more. Undoing the lock nut and screwing it in and out adjusts the depth, and is done after the striker catch has been adjusted side to side or up and down to meet the centre of the striker.

Unlock oven door


The oven model 9815 shows you have a mecahnical latch. this latch has a switch that tells the control board what position it is in (open or closed). This switch should be tested.

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all


same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.

My whirlpool double oven lower door won't stay closed all the way. model RBD305PD810. is there an adjustment that is needed?


If it is a drop down door, then you need to replace both door hinges, if it is a door that opens sideways, then it is probably the door catch, or door striker that needs to be replaced.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Latch does not catch on oven door.


Possible solution: The clean oven safety latch is in the latched position already. Move latch to opposite side and try closing door again. Latch not usually needed except during cleaning cycle.

Good luck,

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light


sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.
