    bottom oven door doesn't close completely. how do i adjust the hinge mechanism?

  • kreuter Jan 13, 2009

    I'm not certain of our model number, but we have the same issue. Took off the door to see if I could tighten a spring, or repair any other part that was broken. Nothing to adjust or repair. The only thing I can come up with is that the cloth seal around the door has become less flexible causing more resistence when the door is closed.

The same thing is happening with my oven. I have found a web page which sells the parts and removing the door and replacing the hinge would be easy enough. The design of the door however, may mean the problem just happens again.

You have to get the tension off of the hinge and it will drop right in. The spring loaded arm on the door needs to be drawn back until you can (depending on the style) either lock the u-arm into the notch on the other side of the hinge, or put a small bolt through the aligning holes in the side of the hinge. Once you get the arm straightened out a bit and relieve the spring pressure, you should be able to sit it right in there. Be careful though, that spring is strong.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Yes this has been a fairly common issue with the Thermador wall ovens as well as their freestanding ranges.

Typically the remedy will be replacing the hinges, but there is a "fix" you can attempt in the interim. At least in hope of keeping the oven light from being on all the time, hence damaging the control board which houses the oven lights transformer.


The issue with those Thermador wall oven and freestanding range doors ( especially on the freestanding "professional" line ) is the weight of the door is so great, the hinge will actually move slightly over time, other times the entire hinge will need to be replaced.

This is what I'd recommend ( also official Thermador remedy, rest assured as I am a authorized factory trained Thermador service provider ) before pronouncing the hinges need replacing though.

**This does require a somewhat involved repair, so if you don't feel completely comfortable or have any reservation to trying this, please call in an local authorized Thermador ( B/S/H/ ) service provider.**


Recommendation: Adjust the door box hinge per instructions below.


1. Pull the oven away from the wall about 12".


2. Remove the hinge box cover plates.


3. Remove the vertical side trim piece. It covers one of the screws that must be loosened.


4. Loosen the 4 screws that secure the hinge box.


5. Place a rolled up dishtowel at the bottom of the door and close the door and apply light pressure to the door while re-tightening the four screws.


See fig below



6. Re-install the hinge box covers & side trims.


7. Re-install and secure the oven.

That should do it, ( or as stated, improve the situation ) if the hinges are too far gone they will need to be replaced unfortunately.


Let me know if you require further assistance or if indeed this solved your problem.

Thank you for choosing FixYa today and good luck going forward.

How do I remove the oven door


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Most if not all Thermador owners manuals have this outlined in them, however, here you go.




Removing the Oven Door


  • Fully open the oven door.
  • Raise the U-clip over the hook on each of the hinges to the "locked" position (see illustration below). This will prevent the hinge from snapping closed when the door is removed.
  • Grasp the door by the sides toward the back. Raise the front of the door several inches (there will be some spring resistance to overcome because of the hinge being locked). When the front of the door is high enough, you will be able to lift the hinges to clear the indents.
  • Pull the hinges out of the slots in the oven front frame.



To Replace the Oven Door


  • Grasp the sides of the door at the center and insert the ends of the hinges into the slots in the oven front frame as far as they will go (see illustration below).
  • With the door open all the way, lower the two locking clips.
  • Raise the oven door and make sure that it fits evenly with the front sides.


DOOR HINGE WARNING:

**CAUTION** With the door off, never release the levers and try to close the hinges. Without the weight of the door, the powerful springs will snap the hinges closed with great force.


Let me know how you make out or if anything is unclear. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Good Luck,

Oven takes forever to heat up - its a thermador double oven - me272


Hello- Check these things first-  Door seals tend to get stiff over time. This is normal. Door hinges can become loose or get bent a bit, causing door to not close tight. This little gap can allow heat to escape, causing extended pre-heat times and frequent cycling of elements. If door doesn't seem to pull shut tightly- hinges will need to be replaced. If oven appears to operate normally otherwise, this should solve problem.  Let me know if the info helps- have more if needed- Thanks  - Ed

Removing the door from a thermador oven CT130


Usually you will find a hole in each hinge to hold the hinge open when removing the door.

It is impossible to fight the door hinge springs and remove or install the door.

One opens the door and puts a nail through the hole to keep the hinge open for each hinge.

The oven door (Model SMW272) does not close completely. It may need an adjustment or a new seal?


Generally speaking, if a oven door does not close properly, and it is a drop down door, then it usually due to weak springs in the hinges.
There is no adjustment provided, so the only solutiom is to replace both door hinges.

Thankyou.

Thermador oven (c301u) door hinges weak, how to install new hinge


This is a relatively easy fix however you will need to remove the door and it is heavy!

Start by opening the door completely and engage the small "locks" that are at the base of the hinge. This will ensure that the spring loaded hinges do not "spring open" when you remove the door. You then will need to remove the hinges from the door via a series of phillips head screws that hold the hinge assembly in place. The new hinges must be "preloaded" into the Open position using a vise or some means of holding the hinge in place while you use a small section of pipe to provide leverage needed to open the hinge so that the Locks can be engaged.

Once the new hinges are "pre-loaded" and the locks are engaged, you can reverse the procedure to re-install the hinges into the door and re-install the door.

Good luck!!

The hinges are commercially avaialble from Applianceparts.com
