Hello!

You try first is take the door off. Then get a big flat headed screwdriver and put it in were the hinge normally goes. Then push it towards the oven and try and bend the bottom of the hinge keeper outwards.
As sometimes if the hinge keepers worn in doing that pulls it out a bit and then you get a better fit on the hinges. Hope it helps

Take care!

After changing the right door hinge on my bosch hbl455auc the door closes but the upper oven door is 1/8 lower at right top than left. How can I realign the door to level?


There are adjustment screws or bolts on the hinge attachments to the oven. Loosen them and adjust the door using wedges to hold the door in place.

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.

Bosch Oven Door Problem - doesn't close at top


On our oven (Bosch Evolution 700 Series HGS7152UC), the problem was getting worse and worse. I found it is was worsening simply because the hinges had started to come loose. I removed the door as suggested above, and although there are no adjustment screws on this model I tightened the now-loose hinge mounting screws. For each hinge there are three screws altogether: two (phillips heads) on the bottom of the door and one (torx head) on the inside wall of the door. After tightening those screws it is a lot better, only leaks as much heat as it did when it was new which is tolerable. Still a bad design.

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.
Thanks.

Faulty oven door


This IS SO EASY !! I have the DACOR 48...no tools, 5 minutes and you are done! It took me 8 years of frustration and I fixed it TODAY !!

Just open the door, latch the small hook that binds the two hinges together. Next try to slowly close the door until resistance. Just when you think you might break something push up another 2 inches. Now lower the door , unhook the latch to seperate the hinges (latches) nad PRESTO a snug fit !!

Bosch HBL745A Oven door


My husband just figured this out.

- Follow Door removal instruction from the manual.
- There is a screw at the end of the hinge that can be adjusted.
- Adjust the screw to desired height.
- Secure lock nut.
