Smeg A2 oven door removal and re-installation

The door was not closing fully, hanging open about 1" at the top.  My wife opened the door fully and engaged the small catches on the hinge bars, which link them together, allowing the door to be lifted away from the oven.

The springs seem strong and nothing obviously broken. 

How do we re-install the door and dissengage the retaining catches on each hinge?  It appears impossible!

Your help would be very welcome.

Regards

Andy

    The door hinge has come out of the wheel pulley track entirely and is to the side of the wheel. Pulling the hiinge out as far as possible, I have not been able to re-set the hinge up, over and into the slot. Can I unscrew the plate of the hinge to the stove, giving me more flexibility to move the hinge - or is there something (such as a nut) holding these screws from the inside?

I finally got my door back on, I had to wedge a butter knife in the hinge to keep it open, then I could put it back on the pins and slide the metal cover/locking thinge over it. Was a pain in the ass.

check first that you have power to the appliance - open the cover over the connection box and check with a multimeter. also carefully check that the connection box is not burnt out. this is likely not a fault with the cooker but your power input

How to lift a2 smeg cooker hob


remove cast iron pot stands and pull off all knobs and small timer buttons. lower the oven doors and look up under the panel holding the knobs and you'll see a screw at each end, remove them. you can now remove the stainless switch panel, (swing the bottom out first) you can now get access to screws at each top corner which should be removed. you can now lift the top panel of the cooker by about 5 inches when a pivoted stay should drop down each side to allow you to rest the top in an open position.

sounds like your door is sprung. take door off and lay flat on a table outside of the door down. loosen screws on door liner . screws are hidden under door seal. when all loose not removed make sure door is flat on table. tighten the screws being careful not to move door. reinstall door and it should be ok. this is usually cause be either someone leaning or hanging on the door when it is open. or putting to heavy of items in the door trays.

My oven is an AEG. The oven in your video is a Smeg. I need to remove the door to clean the oven and then replace it.


Open the door to the first stop, or what is called the "vent" location. This will be about 3 inches open. Lift up on the door and pull up and out. Set the door to the side and keep the arms on the bottom in the same position, do not let them close. Clean the door, when done and set the door back in the slots the same, open the door all the way, and close it. Done. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

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.

Smeg A2 - Oven gets too hot


is there a heat probe inside the oven? sound like you owen is overheating. i would check the TOD, if the oven has one. this thermostat regulates the temperature and if it's "open" it needs to be replaced.

We have a smeg microwave and my wife slammed the door and now i doesnt work could it be the fuse?


If it's dead, it could be a fuse.

If it won't work properly, the door switch mounts or door hinges are out of alignment or broken.

The outside cover will have to be removed so the interaction can be observed between the hook-like door latches and the door switches as you open & close the door.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The oven door won't close properly, it just hangs slackly about 2 cm from the seal. it's a smeg wall oven.


the clips on these oven are canyilver type they can move out of position if opened abruptly .to refit correctly lift door upwards while pushing the bottom of the door inwards.you should feeel a strong resistance from the door springs.there should be a notch n the bottom of the hinge this should slot over the oven frame.if this does not solve the problem then the springs have probably gone on the hinges and will need to replace both hinge assemblies

Smeg Double Oven SD08


this can be hard to do as you should have locked the hinges with the door fully opened before taking it off. the hard part now is (with the door off) you have to push the spring loaded hinges down and lock them with small hook located on each hinge once locked the door will go back on the oven. you then open the door fully and unlock the hinges, good luck

My oven doors wont close all the way


When the door came open you may have bent the hinges. Open the door fully and it should stop at 90 degrees. If lower than that, then the hinges are bent and will need replaced. Also you may look at the install directions and see if your model shows removing the door. If it is removable for install, you can try removing and reinstalling the door. It is possible with removable doors for them to slide up during install and then they are out of alignment for closing. Hope this helps.
