Question about KitchenAid KDRP407HSS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
OK, got the infamous F 05 error after the oven cleaning cycle...turns out the door isn't fully depressing the latch plunger so the solenoid can't move freely.
So how do I adjust the door... I had most of the front trim off & it would appear there are no adjustments....which leaves the springs in the door itself. I didn't see any adjustment for those which means replacement.... any hints on how to do this & not loose an eye. Those springs look like they are under a whole lot of tension.
I found a solution. Remove door (very simple procedure listed in Use and Care Guide). Make a shim and attach it to the end of the hinge arm (the part of the hinge protruding from the door that goes into the slot in the frame). I used metal shears and a coffee can and made a metal strip that I wrapped around the arm 3-4 times. Reinstall door and it should be tight at the top. (Unfortunately I suspect this fix will be temporary until the ill-designed hinge mechanism starts bending again.)

Had the same problem with my Whirlpool stove.
Solution, remove door (as per instruction manual)
Use double back tape to stick a nickel on the stove frame under the holes where the stove attaches. Replace the door.
The bottom of the hing will rest on the nickel, pushing the top of the oven door closed.
