Some times the springs are sized properly and fatigue. This happened to my Jennair double oven. Contact the manufacturer for the correct springs.

Hygena Select 620 Diplomat oven


The last person who used the oven door as a shelf to rest a heavy roast has bent the bracket the hinges go in to.
A piece of dowel (broomstick) cut to the width of the oven and placed as a fulcrum in the hinges, gentle pressure when almost closed can bend it back into position, but that wont last.
>> Replace front frame or retention brackets

Oven door doesnt close well


I'm not familiar with your oven but most oven doors are very similar in operation. When the door doesn't close well it's generally because the hinges have been stretched/bent when the oven door has been open. To see if this is the case, open the door fully. If it's stretched the door will open past 90 degrees (slope down instead of being horizontal). The easiest way to fix this is to bend it back. Place something as a spacer between the door and the oven on both sides (like a spanner handle or anything strong and about 8mm thick) as close to the hinge as possible. Close the door against it carefully and push the door closed. Do it a little at a time and remove the spacers and try the door each time until you are happy that it closes nicely again. It should be spring loaded closed slightly.

Oven door won't quite close tightly. I can push it about another 1/4 inch to close it completely.


You need to replace the hinges in the door. Go online to a spares website and enter make and model and order new hinges. You can replace them by unhooking the door, just takes a little effort, you might need to flick back latch on hinge and lift out. Remove inner door panel, usually 4 screws and remove. then change hinges. The 2 big pieces are the hinges.

We have a 30 in prostyle electric double wall oven - the oven takes forever to preheat and the doors do not seal tightly when they are closed.


Hello- Many ovens use spring-loaded hinges to carry the weight of the door. Over time, these springs weaken or the hinge gets bent just enough to not fully close door. The door gasket can also become flat and stiff, compounding problem. Any small gap releases heated air, and oven will not heat up properly. Replacing the door springs should solve problem.- Thanks -Ed

My oven door doesn't close completely. Is there a way to adjust the door?


Hi There
I found this for to read so you can fix your door.I hope this will help you.Let me know how it goes.
The oven door won't close If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up. If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. We recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

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.

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.
