Question about Viking VDSC365-6B Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
The oven door on my 4 year old dual fuel oven has gradulally closed with less and less force over time. In the beginning the door could be positioned at varying degrees of "openness" i.e. 1", or 2" etc. now that is not possible. there does not seem to be a force being applied to the door to maintain the closure or make the seal. losing oven and gaining a fire pit Bill
Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.
Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?

How to get to the spring for the door on a Hotpoint range

The springs on the hinges for most viking ranges can be adjusted but the door will have to come apart to do so. if yours can be adjusted the once the door is apart youll see a screw at the top of the spring in the door. just tighten the screw a few tunrns on each spring. if theres no screw then youll need to replace the hinges.
