Question about Ovens

1 Answer

The oven door doesn't quite close properly. Thought it may have something to do wit the hinges but upon inspection I was unable to unscrew the the hinges to get a good look. Possibly could be the seal. I would say there is a good centimetre gap at the top of the door.

It sounds like the hinges may be going bad on you. You can inspect them if you want to.

  1. First pull out the broiler oven.
  2. Now you can lift up on the oven door and remove it.
  3. The springs in these hinges have a lot of tension in them. Please be very careful when doing testing the hinges.
  4. Now take a pair of pliers and carefully grab the hinge and pull it towards the the oven.
  5. The hinge should be able to set itself up against the frame of the oven itself. If it does not then that hinge will need replaced.
  6. Check the other hinge.
  7. I am willing to bet that at least one of the hinges needs replaced.

I can't close the oven door


Hi Jorgey,
Either there's something inside that's stopping it closing properly or the hinges have been deformed and are not working correctly. So clear out the oven and try door. Otherwise inspect hinges carefully for deformation. If necessary remove door and hinges. Carefully try to reshape the hinges. If this fails you need new hinges

Oven door will not close


Check the door latch. it may have bent or could be partially in the locked position and stopping the door. Also, there could be something that is at the bottom of the door that is preventing it from closing properly. If the door opens beyond the "level" open position, the hinges may be bent and will need to be replaced. A complete inspection will assist in diagnosis.

I just bought a new home and find the oven door will not close properly. It stays open about an inch with lots of heat escaping. Any ideas?


Most oven doors are equipped with spring closures as part of the hinge assembly, and are designed with a "detent" feature so that the door can be removed for cleaning without requiring tools. Usually, with the door wide open, you lift the hinged edge of the door straight up, and wiggle it straight out at the same time. When you reinstall the door, it is important that both hinges "seat" equally, and that one or the other hasn't tripped out of the detent positiion. You may have to experiment wit it several times, and a second pair of hands may be helpful. You may also find that maybe a freind will know the trick, my wife can pop the door out and back in in a flash! Goodluck Rob.

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.

How to put oven door back on after removing!


Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.

Oven door does not close properly, light stays on.


Check the hinges at the bottom corners to see if the spring is still connected and see if the hinge is wore out. The door lifts off the hinge when it's in the partially open position after loosening the screw holding the door in position on the hinge. Slide the oven out a little to access the hinge to replace or inspect.

Faulty oven door


This IS SO EASY !! I have the DACOR 48...no tools, 5 minutes and you are done! It took me 8 years of frustration and I fixed it TODAY !!

Just open the door, latch the small hook that binds the two hinges together. Next try to slowly close the door until resistance. Just when you think you might break something push up another 2 inches. Now lower the door , unhook the latch to seperate the hinges (latches) nad PRESTO a snug fit !!

Electrolux Oven EOG9330


Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].
