    Hobart LX series units use a torsion bar for door counterbalance. It is located inside the tube that runs between the door hinges. Even when it breaks, the door should still close, but be heavy. Sometimes they will pop open at the start of a wash cycle, but not often. The hinges are replaceable. Is there any obvious damage or broken parts?

If your machine is a Hobart LX series, changing the hinges will probably not remedy your door closing issue.

I'd start at the door magnet. It's located under the handle at the top RH side of the door. Verify that it is there. Next I'd check to see if the other magnet is in place at the top front RH side of the top interior 'ceiling'. It's held in place by a bracket that runs the entire width of the unit.

When the door is closed, these two magnets attract to each other with a firm "snap" and that is what keeps the door closed.

If your door wants to spring open slightly or lazily rest closed without the above mentioned "snap" then you'll need to visually inspect the bottom edge of the door for any cracks or deformation, particularly in the corners. This deformation will cause the bottom of the door to bind against the lower threshold of the machine and keep it from closing. You'll have to remove the door to properly inspect and reform it.

Sadly, my money is on the door being deformed in some way. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

Refrigerator Door won't stay closed


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Part 12 on this diagram is your cam. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=KSRB27FHSS02&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=0593&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00006&componentDescription=REFRIGERATOR%20DOOR&documentId=O2030395&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Door won't stay up or stay closed. The door used to be pulled in so it would stay closed and remain latched. Now it slams downward when you open it and won't remain latched when you want it to run. Some...
