Main oven door does not shut properly

Is over 10 years old and i suspect the springs are worn out.

do you agree and if so are they easy to replace or do i need to get a 'professional' ?

I removed the side panels which exposed the hinge mechanism. I have then removed the whole door and the associated hinges by simply unclipping the retaining springs.

Dismantling has revealed that the pivot pins have become dislodged from their housing, and this is why the door was not shutting properly. I am now spot welding the pins back into position.

Also noted is wear in the slots in which the pins rotate but am hoping that it is all still serviceable as I think spares for Stoves are expensive.

One other point to note is the very poor design of the whole hinge assembly. Not what I expected from Stoves.

We have a classique oven and it wont close properly. It stays open about 25-30mm can you please give us advice? thanks


I presume the gap you are talking about is at the top of the oven door. If so, this means that the door springs are worn/lost their tension. The only way to fix this is to get the springs replaced.

Oven door not shutting fully


Make sure there is nothing trapped at the bottom of the door to prevent it closing properly.
If nothing obviously wrong, then you will probably need to replace both oven door hinges as the door springs are probably weak.
A common problem with this type of oven with a drop down door.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

Either you have not refitted the door back correctly, or the door hinge springs are weak, a common problem.
This being the case, then the only solution is to replace door hinges.

My oven door does not close tight


These hinges are now obsolete and you cannot get them anywhere. The poblem with this type of hinge is not with weak springs or anything like that, it is with the pivot pin in the door hinge. Follow these instructions and it will not cost you anything for the repair.
It is best to remove the oven from the housing. Remove both sides of the oven panels, you have to remove the top first, then the sides (remove about 20 screws all together). Support the bottom oven door first by tying a bit of string between the bottom and top oven door hand rails. This will stop the door falling down when you remove the springs. unhook the springs and the door will just slide out. (Use a loop of string attached to the back end of the spring to pull it from its holes.)
Dismantle the door by removing the screws. You will probably find that the the hinge pivot pins have come away from the U shaped hinge bracket. The secret is to make sure that these are fixed firm back into the bracket. What I did was to nip the U hinge bracket in a vice, (or use pliers) so that the pin will now protude slightly each side of the bracket. This allows more surface bearing area so the pin will not pull itself out of the hinge. To further make sure, I glued the ends of the pin with epoxy resin.
Then reassemble.
My door now feels like a new one even though it is 15 years old.

Have an older Vulcan oven with double doors. The spring clip that holds the door shut has broken off. The spring loaded ball is okay just need the plate that fits on the door. This unit is probably 20 yhs...


found parts for vulcan ovens at a appliance store called Y.E.S. ( year end supply) out of New Mexico if I remember correctly. It has been about 12 years since I have had the pleasure of working on an older vulcan oven. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Main oven door will not close properly. Is there any adjustment for it.


This comment applies to most electric ovens that have drop down doors with hinges at the bottom.
The hinges are not adjustable, and in every case the problem is caused by one or both hinge springs being weak.
The only solution, is to replace both oven door hinges together.
