OPEN THE DOOR COMPLETELY. IF IT GOES BEYOND HORIZONTAL, THE HINGES ARE BENT FROM EXCESS DOWNWARD FORCE. THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.
CHECK THE DOOR HINGE SPRINGS TO MAKE SURE ONE OF THEM ISN'T BROKEN. IF YOU FIND ONE BROKEN, REPLACE 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.

Oven door will not fully close allowing heat to escape and light stays on


Is the door locked? if it is it won't close all the way if it was in the locked position before it was closed. like if it was programmed for "self clean" without the door being closed, the lock would be engaged still.

Oven slow to heat. I had an appliance guy come and change the element, still slow. 1 hour to 300F. I can't find a service manual on this range.


This sounds like a problem with the oven thermostat. If a slow heating problem is reported the element can be the problem sometimes but generally it would be the thermostat which has complete control over the elements heating cycles. It sounds like you may need the thermostat replaced. I hope the the oven door seal it tight. This can cause problems if too much heat escapes through a faulty seal.

Ovendoor not closing for tight seal...


You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.

Oven door not sealing?


These doors have springs to shut them. If you can figure out how to get to the springs usually you will see that one is either unhooked or unattached at one end. If broken on the end bend another hook into it and add a pice of wire long enough to make up the broken difference.

I have a frigidaire oven model# FEF366DCB, the oven door does not close completely, it appears the the door is a little low so that seal does not sit in the grove can this be adjusted or do i have to buy...


THEY NEVER SIT REAL TIGHT,BUT SOME CAN.TAKE A TEMPERATURE (SAY 250)AND SEE IF IT HOLDS.THE IDEA IS TO SEE IF YOUR LOSING HEAT OR JUST BAKE SOMETHING TO SEE IF IT IS UNDERCOOKED.YOU CAN CHANGE THE HINGE IF YOU WANT TO BUT I DONT THINK IT IS NEEDED.

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.
