How do you adjust door closed


Hello Chris;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number, Which is on a metal tag on the face of your oven when you open the oven door.

The only way you can align your door is to loosen the screws on the door hinges, position the door and while someone is holding the door in position tighten the hinge screws. The screw holes have some play in them.

The door on my Nobel model: Nr.: NF 60 SS/1 will not seal when closed.


Oven doors can warp over time. Also, if the door has a heat shield that covers the window and locks the door during self-cleaning it can become misaligned and prevent the door from closing properly. Minor alignment and adjustment can be done by loosening the screws on the hinges and taking advantage of the slots provided for positioning the door before re-tightening the screws however if the door is warped too much you may not have enough adjustment travel available to properly re-align the door. The metal gasket around the door may also have become damaged and is preventing a proper seal and you might be able to locate replacement gaskets at an appliance parts house.

Hygena Select 620 Diplomat oven


The last person who used the oven door as a shelf to rest a heavy roast has bent the bracket the hinges go in to.
A piece of dowel (broomstick) cut to the width of the oven and placed as a fulcrum in the hinges, gentle pressure when almost closed can bend it back into position, but that wont last.

Door will not close completly


When you say "oven door will not close properly", do you mean that it closes but not tightly against the rubber seal on the oven cavity?

Or is it some other closing problem?

If it is the former, then it is a sign of the door hinge springs wearing out. The solution to this is to replace both hinges on the offending door.

Oven door does not fully close


The usual reason for oven doors not closing properly, is weak door hinges,if it does not close all the way, and the door seal is o/k, then I suggest you replace both door hinges. Please rate my solution. Thamks.

Replace door hinges


I had exactly the same problem until tonight!
I had nothing to lose so solved it by sheer brute force!
The problem is with the hinges that the door clips into they seem to get very loose. If you can manage to crimp them against metal they won't move and your door will shut properly. This is how I did it.

1. There are a couple of locks (levers) on each hinge open them up and then lift off the door
2. Ensure that there is nothing wrong with the door brackets, tighten the screws on them to ensure they don't move.
3. Fit the door back on to the hinges and with the levers still open(towards the door) push the door against the hinges which bends them tight in position (don't push too hard otherwise you will completely bend the bracket out of shape you just need to do it enough to crimp it in to place and prevent it from moving)
4. Now open the door, push the levers back closed against the hinges and then shut the door. Hopefully it will be a much tighter fit.

Good luck!

Kitchenaid oven door will not stay closed


I had the same problem on my parents Kitchenaid KEMS378GWH0 oven, the door would only close enough to keep the light on. They propped a chair against it to cook. My father replaced the hinges and it worked for about a week. He noticed that pulling outward on the door at the very bottom edge often allowed it to close enough to use.
After completely dismantling the oven to get access to the brackets that the hinges slide into, we found it was not broken. We decided to expand on the only near solution we had and find a way to make the bottom of the door 'push out'. Our solution was very simple. Remove the small metal plate that covers the door insulation. This revealed that the insulation is a braided hollow rope that is held in by small clips that push through holes in the front of the oven. We threaded some small metal rods about 3/8 inch in diameter into the hollow insulation pushed the clips back in to re-attach the insulation, replaced the metal cover plate.
It worked!
