Knobs are distorting with heat

It sounds like either a bad design or a leaking seal,the knobs are above the oven?If it is the door might not be sealing good allowing heat from the oven to escape upwards heating up the knobs.It is not normal.

OVEN USED WITH BROKEN DOOR SEAL, OVEN HEAT HAS GONE INTO OVEN BODY AND MELTED SOME WIRING, STOPPED WORKING NOW. Have bought and fitted a new door seal, what do I do next, can I buy individual wiring parts...

hello sir/mam
good you have changed the door seal but you cant do the wiring because if the wires are fully burnt it is difficult to notyfy which wire is connected to which part of the oven so please call the engineer he will do it.

The glass surround on the oven door has partly come away, have tryed super glue to stick it back down but it just wont work, probably due to the heat. any ideas on what to use to re-stick it or replace??

Here's a suggestion from Rex_Mundi; 10-11-2006 at 7:24 PM..

"Best bet is to get in touch with the manufacturer. This will be some specialist Intumescent (fireproof) type glue or tape. Intumescent tape is available (I've used many different kinds over the years for glazing in firedoors/windows), but I wouldn't risk recommending anything without any word from the manufacturer. You have an added issue here (food in the oven) you don't want to risk anything that may give off fumes when very hot." I, Charlie, would agree with the above. Crazy Glue, for example, will produce very nasty fumes when heated. Another person's experience ( icecoolbabe ) : "This happened to my oven ... and I could not find a heatproof glue anywhere. I ended up going back to the manufacturer.

They sent an engineer to replace the whole oven door! He said you cannot normally reseal them properly so it's easier to replace the door." Charlie

Oven door does not seal

Drill out the rivets with a power drill use nuts bolts and lockwashers where the rivets were Once the door is back on:
loosen all the door screws then bend the door diagonaly slightly to square it with the oven opening (don't worry you won't damage it) then tighten the door screws again check to see that the door is flush (no gaps)

Upper oven door won't close properly.

You will need 2 new door hinges as they go weak after a time.and people tend to rest things on the door when open this will also weaken the hinges.they can be puchashed and fitted by anyone who is handy.(ie) not a big job only a few screws..hope this helps

Oven does not work

I assume the oven has worked at one point? Does the broil still work?

This is my experience with my White-Westinghouse gas stove:
The igniter bar is toast. There is 1 igniter bar each for the bake and broil (1 on top, 1 below). This is instead of a pilot light. Its an element that heats up to be hot enough to ignite the gas. If it doesn't get hot enough, the gas does not turn on and therefore not heat.

I went to my store and asked about this. "90+% of the time, that's the problem" So I bought a replacement and installed it myself. Problem fixed. Just had to undo a few screws to get at the bar, then connect the new one's wiring under the stove using marettes & some electrical tape, but the rest back together and that was it. I think the part cost me about $60-80 here in Winnipeg a few years ago. But it would've been at least that just for the guy to show up to look at the stove, never mind fixing it.

Oven door inner glass

With any plain electric oven yes, as long as it's not a microwave.
You will ofcourse loose a lot of heat and can do the same as I wrote underneath regarding a microwave oven to counter this loss. Only then wrap the foil around the door from the inside because the electric oven tends to get hot and would melt the tape.

Even when it's a microwave and you just have to cook you could
tape some aluminium foil to the door from the inside and *do* make sure there are no cracks where radiation can leak out.
