    Same problem. Had warranty person come and look at it, he said that's the way it's supposed to be. We sighed and accepted that, then years later we saw another stove without the gap and realized we'd been had.

    Same problem-Big gap at top and nice fit at bottom of the door.
    No adjustment that is visible

    Same problem, even since newly installed. Gap at top, nice fit at bottom. Repair man said we needed new hinges and gasket (about $200) but have not gotten them yet. The gasket still looks fine and has lots of "spring" in it.

How can i fix fan oven door? magnet doesnt seem to work so heat escapes from the gap.


Check the alignment to see is the door makes a complete closure. If the door sets perfectly, check the hinges on both sides to see if they are tight and make proper connection with the oven opening. I doubt if the door seals using a Magnetic strip, it generally hold fast by spring pressure.

Ilve oven door adjar with a gap at the top


Yes but try removing the door usually a small lever on the hinge or just lower the door a bit and lift it off. Then put it back on and make sure it sits back down into the hinges. We had one that did the same thing and the door was just a bit out of the hinge.

Oven door will not close all the way. 6" gap at the top. No problems until last use and now won't close. Any hints on how to proceed would be appreciated. Thank you!


Most oven doors are held in place by two hinges at the bottom. Usually these hinges are not attached but hook into the oven.

Sounds like you need to readjust one or both of the hinges.

Usually can be done by pulling up on the door and pushing the bottom of the door in.

Write back if you have more problems.

My oven door shattered. i bought the glass and the outer trim. i need help installing it


This job is best done by two people, one to hold the glass in place, and the other to operate the screwdriver and position the handle and trim pieces.
The glass is held in place by the handle assembly at the top and a metal track at the bottom.  You remove the glass by removing the handle. Open the door part way until you have access to the back of the door.  The door handle is held in place by two screws on the back (the oven side).  Remove the screws, taking care to hold the handle in place.  Be sure to brace the glass, then slowly move the handle away from the door frame.  Remove the glass.  The side trim pieces will probably fall away from the door frame, although they will probably not fall all the way out.  My advice is to carefully remove them.  Be careful; they have tabs on the bottom edge that hold them in the door frame and these tabs are easily broken.  If yours are still in one piece you might just reuse them.
Remove the old glass panel and clear the bottom track of any debris.  Put the new glass panel in, beginning with the bottom track.  Set the oven handle on the top edge of the glass panel; there are tracks on the back of the handle assembly the top edge of the glass fits into.  Bring the handle toward the door frame, taking care not to let the glass panel slip out of the tracks.   The door handle has two collars that go through holes in the door frame.  Once you've got the collars through these holes, you can put the two screws back in that secure the handle to the door.
Take one of the side trim pieces.  Each trim piece has a narrow edge and a wide edge (like a capital "L"), The narrow edge faces the front and the wide edge faces the side of the door.  Each piece has a corner edge with a little tab sticking out.  These face down.  The opposite end of the trim piece has recessed edges. These slide under the edge of the door handle.  You want to insert this end first, then work your way along the length of the trim piece pushing the narrow edge between the door frame and the glass panel.  
Here's the tricky part.  To get the bottom in, the best thing to do is to open (or better yet remove altogether) the drawer beneath the oven to gain access to the screws that hold the bottom track of the glass panel to the door.  Loosen the screw that holds the track in on the same side as the trim piece you're working on; the screws are on the bottom of the track about 1 inch in from the edge. Loosen the screw slightly and pull down on that edge of the trim as you push the trim piece in behind the glass.  Repeat until the trim piece tab slips through the hole for it on the track.  Tighten the screw back in place.
Repeat this process for the other trim piece. If you're patient and gentle, it shouldn't be too difficult.  I just did this myself today (2/7/09).
Good luck.

F.14 maytag gas range


The error code F-14 indicates that the ribbon connector between the touch pad and the electronic oven control is disconnected. The recommended repair is to disconnect the ribbon connector from the electronic oven control and re connect it firmly.

If this doesn't correct the error code the recommendation is to replace the electronic oven control.

If you want to attempt this repair yourself, disconnect the power to the oven and open the door. Remove the three screws above the oven door that are holding the bottom of the control panel to the oven frame. Pull the bottom of the control panel out about 1 inch and down and it will release. The ribbon connector is a flat tape like cable, and there is a latch arm that you have to release before you can disconnect the ribbon.

Good Luck and please rate FixYa!

Vulcan Range that wasn't heating.


The half inch tubing should be adequate under most circumstances. However, you may run into volume issues while using the oven and a few burners at the same time. If it bothers you, replace it. The door should be flush (or close to it) on the sides and the top. If you have an air gap, check the hinges.

Oven door will not seal at top.


The same thing with mine. I took apart the door today and found the hinges a little bent. I think it should be ok to bent them the opposite way a little with some mole grips......and then I must remember not to move the stove out for cleaning by the oven door handle again (oops).
Door comes off (unlock hinges and lift up). undo 4 screws on the bottom edge and then two on the inside of the door handle then it comes apart - beware as it's heavy. The hinges themselves come off with two screw each.
