Oven door slams shut

I have a stove with the oven door that just slams shut and does not catch partway open when removing hot dishes. Is this the way the glass top was made or is there an issue that can be fixed. I have gotten burned badly because of this issue.

Oven will not come on error message F31 appears


the oven needs two things 1, gas or electricity plus 2, thermocouple.
If gas try lighting manually by removing oven bottom plate of oven when possible. That puts everything out in the open. If it does not open that way go to the bottom broiler opening and light manually.
this will tell you where the problem is.

Electric oven, go to fuse box and shut off supply line them turn back o n. This is easiest fix and resets the stove. On electric stove there may be an interlock that shuts oven off when the door is open.
Hope this gets you started!!!

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

Have to slam door to get oven to operate


Try a) Lubricate the latches. I sprayed wd-40, you probably can use vegetable oil. Both sides, latch and receptor. Just doing this may fix your problem. (I have to admit I did part b first before trying this so I am not sure, but after doing this, it made my part b fix work even better)

b) Failing this, I found opening it up (t-20 torx screw driver) and tying a wire in the top hole, through the bottom latch body and fastening to a bottom hole of the microwave frame to force the mechanism to stay in place. You want to pull it towards the oven cavity. This will keep it from bending out of alignment. I found that it is only the bottom latch that has to catch for the microwave to sense the door is closed.

Door has been an issue when closing light stays on and you really have to slam the door for the light to go off


Door catches.

Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. The door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.

Want to know how to adjust the fit of the driver side door on a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee needs to be slammed shut.


!st thing to do is to make sure the catch latch on the door is properly lubed.If it is and you still have problems,then the small catch that is on the car,needs to be adjusted.
Open the door and look where the door catch is.On the car.It,s a plate with a u-shaped metal rod.This needs too be moved outwards by about 3mm.It's held by 2 x head screws.They need to be loosened,adjust the plate,and then tightened back up very tight.
If the car door has been opened very quickly by say,the wind or slammed open,then this can alter the door alighnment.
Hope this helps you

My stoves oven is burning my kitchen cupboards


If you could provide some more information, then I may be able to help. What part of the oven is causing the problem, i.e. top or bottom door. If the doors don't shut properly then this may cause the hot air to escape. If it is one of the doors, is it sitting square in the frame?

Oven doesn't light, ignite


I assume it a gas operated oven. In the past I have gotten the gas company out to reajust our stove at no cost. If it is a gas unit you need it readusted before it cause damage to your house or life.

I have a gas oven whirlpool sf3020ekq2 buners work but oven won't


Sounding like your hot surface ignitor is getting bad. What I would like for you to do is open the oven and take the bottom panel off. This is so you can see the hot surface ignitor. Turn the oven on and look at the hot surface ignitor it is down on the bottom right next to the burner assembly. Does it start to glow and turn cherry red? This ignitor isn't too hard to replace couple of small screws and two wires. Will have to cut the wires so disconnect the unit from the 120 volt plug. Now if it starts to glow and get cherry red hot then the gas valve is sticking and it is the one going bad. That is a little tougher to replace. Turn the gas off at the source and get your wrenches unscrew the gas valve small space so if you want remove the door by just pulling it off the hinges.

If unit is old and you don't like it anyway maybe santa would be good to you and replace the stove oven. The gas valve is about 60 bucks or so and hot surface is about 20 bucks. let me know how it turns out.. ken
