Inquiry on parts for ancient Frigidaire Cookmaster

Hello there

Is there any hope whatsoever of getting hold of a door hinge & seal for a very old Cookmaster? It's a wall mounted electric model with a warming drawer - it has to be about 40 years old or so. It works fine, but the seal and door hinge have had it. If you could tell me where to look, I might be able to find model details.

thanks, Kerryn.

How do you adjust door closed

Hello Chris;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number, Which is on a metal tag on the face of your oven when you open the oven door.

The only way you can align your door is to loosen the screws on the door hinges, position the door and while someone is holding the door in position tighten the hinge screws. The screw holes have some play in them.

What replacement parts should I order to keep my Kenmore oven door from just dropping down when it is opened?

If the hinge is not broken "Check the Springs".
They sometimes come off at one end or can be broken.
There are 2 one on each hinge. They are strong so be VERY careful.
As I remember they have a color code according to how strong that are according to the weight of the oven door.
The surest way is to get the MODEL NUMBER from the tag on your oven. The parts store will be able to look up the proper replacement.
I may be able to tell you more with a model number for Identification, the oven is likely a Whirlpool Product made for Kenmore. Let me know if you are in New York City area.
Hope this helps.

Door lock is stuck closed cannot shut door?

Good Morning Richard, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire oven door is stuck closed and you are unable to shut the door. You can disconnect power from your range for at least ten minutes and that will reset your oven. This may trick your door latch into opening.

You can also hold down the cancel or clear button for 10 to 15 seconds that may allow your door latch to release. Also attempt to hold down the light and cancel buttons. I hope this information has been helpful to some degree. -Matt

The oven door is locked

Hello Berna Morgan, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided the door on your Frigidaire oven is locked. If you check on the control panel of your oven there should be a clear or cancel button, hold that down for three to five seconds. If that does not help unlock your door I would suggest performing a power reset and you can do that flipping the household circuit break for roughly ten minutes. That should provide a factory reset to your oven. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Thermador oven door won't close all the way - seems like the seal is holding it open. I can press and hold it closed, but if I release, it pops out. The oven light stays on all the time. Model smw272

Have exactly the same situation. All the solutions I have seen talk about replacing the hinges or seal. But people report the same thing happens a month later. Looking hard at the door what it needs is something to pull it right at the top. So I installed a rare earth magnet from I used part number BX884DCS which costs $4. It mounts with a couple of screws and I put it on the door a couple of inches down from the top.
Its possible that heat from the oven will kill the magnet over time but for $4 I can replace it for a lot less than hinges and it works great. The door closes more securely than it ever did when the oven was new.
Hope this helps.

Very Old Whirlpool "Wall of Fire" Gas OVen

what you have to do is get a couple of nails pull the hinge on the door down far enough to insert the nails in the holes and let it rest against the door this will hold the door at the proper angle to engage the hooks inside the hinge slots on the body of the range grasp the door on each side and insert the hinges in each side to engage the hooks then open the door all the way and remove the nails

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.
