    It doesnt appear the door is closing snug enough to press the switch in....when I press lock the latch pulls the door closed completely

    The door of my oven does not close all the way. It closes at the bottom but not at the top, so the light stays on, but more importantly the heat escapes.

    I have the same problem, after only 1 year. Had the sears repair man out and was told i need new hinges.

    Our range door does not close tight so there is discoloration of the exterior at the top end of the door.  The light does turn off, however.  The bottom of the door closes tight, the top does not.


    We have door hinges cannot be adjusted differently for the door to close properly.

If your locking it to make the light goes off it sounds more like the light switch on the oven needs to be replaced
