Question about Kitchen Ranges

8 Answers

We own a Eurogas 900mm stainless steel freestanding stove which we purchased in 1998. The oven door hinges need to be replaced but we are unable to find a local supplier. We believe the stove was manufactured in Italy but we have not been able find contact details for the manufacturer. It seems the only place Eurogas stoves are sold now is South Africa. Do you have any suggestions where we could obtain suitable hinges?

    Hi what a surprise to find I am not the only one with this exact problem. And my friend has the same freestanding Eurogas oven with the same problem. I bought the oven in 2004 and from day 1 the door never closed properly. We did not live near the city so they refused to come out and assist with this problem even though we it was still under garuantee. Eventually they sent someone who replaced the hinges and burnt buttons, but that didnt last more than a month. I look after my stove well and do not abuse the door. All I can think of is fixing a closing device on both sides outside the door. If anyone have been able to get proper assistance from Eurogas please tell me where or how to fix this problem on a very expensive oven.

I have the same stove but do not have a problem with the oven door hinges but rather the glass cooker hood hinges--although my knobs are starting to burn. Both hinges have popped in separate occasions and both times I have called the Cape Town agent foo Eurogas and had fantastic responses from them.

Fix for oven door that wont close properly - Italian made wide gas stoves

Chances are, it is not the hinges responsible for a loose door that will not close tight. Chances are the 13mm by 5 mm (my guess) hinge rollers have broken or worn out. If you paid a repairman to fix the door and he did not replace the hinge receivers - you have paid a quack.
The hinge recievers are quickly removed for inspection by removing 2 phillips head screws, and they sort of drop down - ready for inspection.

The hinge levers press up on these hinge rollers. if the feeble axle wears out, the rollers fall out, so the door just slops about loosely.

The hinges fit in hinge receivers or hinge supports, those 2 vertical slots that the oven door sits in. Sick a bit of firm straight wire - like from a coat hanger, and push it in and see if there is a roller that works towards the top.

If not remove the 2 screws and retrieve the hinge assembly, and you will see a roller or not. These oven hinges may also go under Glem and Bauermatic and Emilla. SMEG hinges are close but annoyingly different, but they have the right size roller if you want to do a transplant.

You can probably get something close on ebay or amazon - search on hinge receiver. Mob from UK is about 5 pound each.

I went to the local rubbish dump, and paid $2 for 2 hinge receivers of a Chef oven. These fit but will not work. The chef hinge and receiver pair MIGHT work, but wont because the hinge screw mounting hole are about 5mm in the wrong place. Seems every oven manufacturer designs incompatibility, and oh to close, but not identical parts.

In the chef hinge receiver, they have a plastic wheel, a bit bigger than the proper steel one. I removed the wheels from this receiver and using a soft metal bolt as an axial with nut mounted / transplanted it in the two holes just above where it should be mounted. Although it has a larger diameter, placing it 3 mm higher in the predrilled hole works a treat.

It worked, Oven door fixed. I speculate drilling holes in small coins, one could fabricate a V wheel of sorts too

Remove door on whirlpool stove or range

I'm not sure about Whirlpool but most doors have a little locking latch on the door hinge. Look carefully at the exposed hinge when open and see if there is something you could pry up with a screwdriver while someone supports the door. Then you lift the door away. Its all in the owners handbook if you have one. If not go to the manf website and see if you can download one.

Is there any way to tighten this door up ,the one i have comes down just a little and the light comes on

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.

I can't find the number on my oven door to replace the handle

Sometimes the numbers are either stampped or on a metal plate on the bottom (hinge) part of the door. You could try using the model number and/or serial number of the entire oven.
