SOURCE: Electrolux Oven EOG9330

Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].

SOURCE: oven door not closing

I was having the same problem with my frigidaire oven door. I was thinking that it was the seal getting in the way at first, but then I realized that the hinges needed to be repositioned. I wasn't in the mood for that kind of reengineering, so I came up with a better solution. Magnets. Not those **** fridge magnets either. Neodymium magnets. Place them on the upper part of the inside of the door, near the door lock (outside of the seal). You'll only need about three or four depending on the size. (get the fatest ones you can). If you know a computer geek you might be able to get a few free magnets from an old hard drive. I used five of these and I can just about pull the oven out of it's place while trying to open the door. The onhly problem is that heat destroys magnets and I can't say how long these will last because I just figured this out tonight.

I recently had a small spring go on the oven door, but before I could put it in, the left side started sticking towards the open position. It is getting harder to open and close now, even with the spr


I would look for something more like a larger spring that the small spring was regulating. The door being askew would suggest that there is some tension that is no longer in place.

Oven door won't close


if you look around under the handle or under the top of the stove on the front there should be thin lever. This lever is designed to lock the oven door closed tightly when you are activating the self cleaning oven feature. It is likely that someone accidentally lock the lever while the door to the oven was open. Simply find that locking lever return it to the unlocked position and your door should shut fine.

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.

Door will not close completly


When you say "oven door will not close properly", do you mean that it closes but not tightly against the rubber seal on the oven cavity?

Or is it some other closing problem?

If it is the former, then it is a sign of the door hinge springs wearing out. The solution to this is to replace both hinges on the offending door.
