    The door on my Ariston CP-859mt oven no longer closes firmly. There is a small gap which lets out the heat. Can anyone tell me how to adjust the door?

Ensure the two bottom hooks of the oven door are properly latched in place.....see page 5 of the User's & Installation Manual. Also check the door seal for wear and tightness.

I'll look forward to hearing back from you with any further questions, comments, or concerns. :-)

Im not sure what will be the cause in your case...but in general if the hinges are adjustable... all you have to do is to let them a little longer ....I mean the distance in the lower point to the edge of the oven to be a few millimeters wider...and it will close better cause the tension will be loosed ...another issue may be with the springs ...but this is particularly in each model and case...and usually there is not much to do about see if the hinges are adjustable ..and try to put some distance between the edge of door and the bottom side of the oven ...Also check the rubber isolation gasket is not damaged..this also can make it not even ..
if the hinges are adjustable in vertical...just see by trying ...witch way should they go ...lower or higher...cause this may depend on the reason ...and will change the angle and allow the springs to work better ...It actually have a point that allow the tension to be in exterior or interior...cause the actual spring is in the hinge and it is a steel elastic blade ...something like that ...I have a little language barrier ...

    by the way ..I forgot to mention ..if they just do not want to work proper can always get to a hardware store and buy new hinges to change them ...I dont think will cost too much and if you do it yourself ..its ok ..

How do you adjust doors on imperial ICV-1 convection oven

The turnbucke system behind the lower panel is relatively straightforward but one buckle is LH thread the other is RH thread. Slacken both locknuts and adjust the buckles until the LH door lags by the thickness of the RH door when they are just coming together (a rough approximation). Don't have too much tension on the chains and lube the chains, gears etc with a copper based grease. It has been known for the little grub screws in the bottom cogs to come loose. You'll need an allen key to tighten them up.

After all adjustments check the chain 'slack' by quickly opening/closing the doors when at about 1/2 open. There shouldn't be so much that the LH door doesn't react reasonably quickly to the change of direction, but not so tight as they are like bow strings.

Both oven doors do not close properly. lights stay on & can't heat properly with doors not closing tight. is there an adjustment for these doors?

We have similar Jen Air double oven and with the same problem but only on the lower oven. The doors are interchangeable and the top door fits fine but the lower door will not close completely at the top. It does turn out the light but has never cooked properly. I checked with several appliance repair shops and the hinges are not adjustable, but since one door closes and our other doesn't it is not a hinge problem, just a defective design.

We let this go too long and are out of warranty so I doubt Jennair is going to do anything. I hope someone post a solution but it is clearly not problem with the henges but with the receptacle they go into.

Oven door won't stay tightly shut

Oven door hinges are not adjustable, assuming you have fitted the door back correctly, and it is still not closing properly, then the only solution is to replace the door hinges.

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.

My oven door does not close tight

These hinges are now obsolete and you cannot get them anywhere. The poblem with this type of hinge is not with weak springs or anything like that, it is with the pivot pin in the door hinge. Follow these instructions and it will not cost you anything for the repair.
It is best to remove the oven from the housing. Remove both sides of the oven panels, you have to remove the top first, then the sides (remove about 20 screws all together). Support the bottom oven door first by tying a bit of string between the bottom and top oven door hand rails. This will stop the door falling down when you remove the springs. unhook the springs and the door will just slide out. (Use a loop of string attached to the back end of the spring to pull it from its holes.)
Dismantle the door by removing the screws. You will probably find that the the hinge pivot pins have come away from the U shaped hinge bracket. The secret is to make sure that these are fixed firm back into the bracket. What I did was to nip the U hinge bracket in a vice, (or use pliers) so that the pin will now protude slightly each side of the bracket. This allows more surface bearing area so the pin will not pull itself out of the hinge. To further make sure, I glued the ends of the pin with epoxy resin.
Then reassemble.
My door now feels like a new one even though it is 15 years old.

Oven door isn't closed tightly on both sides.

If it is a door that lifts up and down, then the only solution is to replace both door hinges, as they are not normally adjustable, it is the springs that are weak.
Plz rate my solution.

Westinghouse Wall oven mod.PON 667S

Hi there.

Westinghouse have produced a modification which replaces the left and right door support channels in the front of the oven.
Call Ryan Nielson Spare Manager at Axial Appliance Servicing
in Mt Wellington Auckland, and he can sell you the reinforced parts which cost me $27 for my oven.
I am replacing these channels myself this weekend as warranty no longer applies to our oven, but if yours is still under warranty I'd suggest that Axial will do the whole job.
