We have a classique oven and it wont close properly. It stays open about 25-30mm can you please give us advice? thanks


I presume the gap you are talking about is at the top of the oven door. If so, this means that the door springs are worn/lost their tension. The only way to fix this is to get the springs replaced.

Oven door won't close completely


You will probably have to replace the springs I doubt if they can ve fixed. you can open the door all the way and you will see a hole in the spring just inside the door. you can stick a nail in that hole, both springs that will hold the door open and you can lift the door out and check the springs I will tell you to have patience its not easy.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

We have a 30 in prostyle electric double wall oven - the oven takes forever to preheat and the doors do not seal tightly when they are closed.


Hello- Many ovens use spring-loaded hinges to carry the weight of the door. Over time, these springs weaken or the hinge gets bent just enough to not fully close door. The door gasket can also become flat and stiff, compounding problem. Any small gap releases heated air, and oven will not heat up properly. Replacing the door springs should solve problem.- Thanks -Ed

The oven door does not close properly and stays open enough to keep the light on. Whirlpool Gold, Model GR399LX60


If it has a drop down door with hinge on either side, then only solution is to replace both door hinges, as the problem is usually due to weak door springs, and they are not adjustable.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Can't get the oven door back on. it was sitting


As you said they are spring loaded so be careful. You will need to pull on the hinge, which takes some muscle and you should see a small hole to put a pin or small screwdriver in to hold the hinge out. When this is in place on both the hinges you can put the door back on. This is the most common hinge style on Wpl or there may be tabs on the tops of the hinges to hold the hinge out. If the door still does not close all the way after getting the hinges all the way on you will need to take the door apart and replace the hinge/spring assy. Thanks for rating me after you read this.

Door doesn't close tightly and sometimes the light stays on. Can I tighten the springs?


One of both of the springs are probably off or broken. Slide it out and inspect the hinges and springs which are at the bottom of the door. The springs hook to the hinge and the base of the oven farther back. You may have to remove the side cover.
