Question about Kenmore 96422 / 96424 / 96429 Electric Kitchen Range
My oven door does not seal tightly. It often does not even close enough to trigger the oven light to go off. Any suggestions as to how to adjust this?
Put a tea towel on both sides of the door [folded] down by the hinges then close door. gently push the door close try a few times with a little pressure.

I have the exact same problem with Kenmore stove. How do you actually get the hinges off?

Sears should have a recall as these ranges were built with faulty hinges that do not allow the oven to close properly and the oven does not retain temperature.
The repairman told me that Sears is well aware of this problem but will do nothing about it.
It is 200 dollars for new hinges. Our stove is a little over a year old and the total cost for hinges and replacing the digital display was almost the price we paid for the stove.

This is a fairly common problem on some models. You will need to replace the door hinges. If you give me the complete model # from the sticker on the range I can give you part #'s and pricing.
