The best repair is to replace the hinges and springs. If you do want to lubricate them do NOT use grease or wd40, these are flammable and do not mix well with heat.

Look up an appliance parts store in your city and pick up some high temperature copper or graphite based lubricant those are safe for use on oven hinges.

I replaced my door springs but it seams the hinges pop out of the track when opening the door and it causes the door to drop down to far

Tom, I am pretty sure you have not reinstalled door quite right, try again till you get it seated into proper position.

How do you adjust doors on imperial ICV-1 convection oven

The turnbucke system behind the lower panel is relatively straightforward but one buckle is LH thread the other is RH thread. Slacken both locknuts and adjust the buckles until the LH door lags by the thickness of the RH door when they are just coming together (a rough approximation). Don't have too much tension on the chains and lube the chains, gears etc with a copper based grease. It has been known for the little grub screws in the bottom cogs to come loose. You'll need an allen key to tighten them up.

After all adjustments check the chain 'slack' by quickly opening/closing the doors when at about 1/2 open. There shouldn't be so much that the LH door doesn't react reasonably quickly to the change of direction, but not so tight as they are like bow strings.

I have an AEG competence 5020 B fan oven (single) which has a very noisey fan, does this need a new motor and can I fix this myself?

Remove the oven, open the back, remove the fan, and clean with WD40, afer the fan is dry, fit the fan back into the housing, replace back and put into cabinet, switch on low, if the fan makes a whirring noise, or unusual squeeking replace the fan, if however the fan sounds normal and good pressure when door is open, it should be okay. If you require a part go to

I have a GE Profile Wall Oven. JT910SASS. The cooling fan makes a loud noise. How do I replace it? Where is it?


Firstly, you don't need to replace your fan simply because it's noisy. It may be sufficient just to grease the spindle/bearings.

The fan is located at the back of the oven and CANNOT be accessed from inside the oven. If you open the oven door, you will see a grille at the back of the oven compartment - basically just some slots and holes cut into the back panel. Behind this grille is the heating coil/element, then another panel, behind which is the fan/fan motor. Basically, the fan is right at the back, dead-centre of the unit.

To access the fan, you will need to remove the oven from the wall cabinet and remove the back panel. To do this, you first need to unplug the oven or, if it's hardwired, detach the cable from the outlet - power off please! Next, remove the retaining screws at the on both sides of the oven at the front - these are only revealed when the door is open. You should now be able to remove the oven from the wall cabinet by pulling it forwards gradually and feeding the power cable through as you do it. I suggest getting someone to help you lift it out as they are fairly heavy and awkward to hold/carry. Also wear some old clothes as the bottom of the unit can be quite greasy!

Put the oven somewhere safe where you can access the back of the oven easily. The fan is covered by a removable back panel. Undo the screws (about 10) around the edges of the panel and partially pull the panel away - taking care not to snag any of the wiring behind the panel. You will also need to remove the connectors to the main power cable to remove the panel fully. Make a note of the connections (or take a photo) to ensure you reconnect it correctly!

You should now have clear access to the fan. Inpsect it visually to see if the blades are broken and try spinning it by hand to identify where the noise is coming from. If the blades are sound apply some HMP grease around the spindle which rotates the fan. This can be quite tricky, so it might be easier to liberally apply some spray lube around the area. Spin the fan by hand a little to work the lube in.

Next, test the oven before putting it back into the wall cabinet. This can be done by replacing the back panel and plugging the oven into a socket or extension cable. If the oven was hardwired, attach a plug to the end of the cable. Turn the oven on at the minimum temperature and let it run for 5-10 minutes to allow the lubricant to work through. If the noise has diminished or gone, reinstall the oven in reverse order of the above. After refitting, I suggest running the oven empty on a low-mid temperature until the smell of lubricant has gone.

If the fan is damaged - or you can't get rid of the noise by lubricating it - then you will need to buy a new motor and fan blade. Fitting these is easy with the back panel removed as they simply bolt/screw onto the back panel of the oven and the wires just slide on and off. If possible, take some photos before removing the old fan/motor to ensure correct fitting of the new parts.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Hope this helps.

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.
