Question about AGA ILVE M-90F-MP Dual Fuel Range

Oven door will not remain fully closed

Hi, I have an Ilve P90 series electric oven and gas cook top. The oven door sits slightly open, like there's not enough spring tension to keep it closed. The door will close if it's pushed gently, but still sits open when I stop pushing. Any thoughts on rectifying this?

Noiselab is not correct for all cases. As Buzz says, if the springs are strong then the foil fix works and works really well. Refer to attached photo for guidance in conjunction with instructions below. Note my possibly simpler answer at bottom.

I cut some short narrow strips (about 4mm x 20 mm) from a tin can and folded them over into a flattened "U". You can back off the large Phillips head screw on the frame of the oven where the door hinges are inserted and sit the tin over the little plate that is held by these screws and then tighten so that one end of the "U" sits between the oven chassis and the adjustment plate. If it still doesn't quite close add more tin as required. Refer photo for terminology.

Now the simpler solution which I didn't try but which would probably work after I contemplated the problem in retrospect is this. The reason I didn't think of this was that I thought the hinge went into a tube or slot. Later I realised it is just a simple cantilever design which is why the tin foil solution works (ie lifting the middle support of the cantilever produces a corresponding closure of the door). When I inspected the large Phillips head screws to insert the tin foil these were completely loose. Try this first then. Slide the adjustment plate up as high as the tolerance of the Phillips screw allows and then tighten it off hard. This will raise the bottom edge of the plate just as the tin foil method does. If not enough then proceed to the tin foil method.

See this page for Smeg ovens. Worked on my Ilve:

Put some tin foil under the hinge (lift up the door to partially remove the door). Padding the hinge helps shut the door. No need to replace hinges if the spring is still strong.

You will need to replace the oven door hinges. There is no adjustment mechanism. We replaced ours $90 australian. It took me 15 mins to replace and the oven door was sealing perfectly. This is the only way to do it.

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.

Re Neff B1451 oven door not sealing against oven body at top


If you take the hinges off, you can fit some washers between the hinges and the door to make it close it further. Probably not as good as new hinges, but cheaper. 2mm of washers will close a 5mm gap

Instruction manual


HI SIR  
When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour.
Multifunction Oven Function Selections

2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting.
3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled.
4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function.
5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 
8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting
 - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.

Advanced Oven Features

Cavity Cooling

The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off.

Triple Reflective Door Glazing

Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.

Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional)
Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.

Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional)
The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.

The Electronic Timer



Normal Baking

Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.

To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.

Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.

Fan Forced Baking

Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.

Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.

Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.

Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.

Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.

top


Grilling

Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.

This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.

Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.

Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.

Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.

Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.

As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.

it really doesnt matter because the heat transfers directly onto the food therefore you can leave the door open or shut.
