Question about Stoves 720EF Electric Double Oven
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.
