How old is the oven? Did this problem just start? If this is an older oven, and it started having this problem recently, it sounds like the door is bent slightly. Enough to keep the light on. Anyone put weight on the open door, (or as I saw once, someone trip and land on an open dishwasher door, which didn't shut properly afterwards) You can get a piece of paper, put it at the top corner of the door opening, try pulling it out. Try this all around the opening, you should be able to tell where it doesn't close properly. U might be able to 'tweek' it, by trying to bend it to close tighter at the largest gap, BUT this could make it worse, or if it has a glass panel, u might break it. So, tweek at your own risk. countrycurt0

Oven shuts off after closing door


Have you put a thermometer in the oven to make sure it is not heating. They will not always glow red if the oven is at temp.

replace the door hinges . It appears that the springs in the hinges have failed and the springs normally come as part of the hinge. Contact Electrolux with the details or go to an appliance service centre.

I have a whirlpool GW395 gas stove with a problem. When you first turn it on it lights, it will stay lit for about 45 seconds then the burner will go off , after you let it set for about 45 seconds it...


The usual problem with these ovens is the oven burner itself. the burner will click 3 times and usually lights but after a few minutes shuts down and will no light again until you reset the control. If this is happening then try replacing the oven burner. It comes as one unit the burner assembly and electrode. Part # 8191123. If this doesn't work then it coould be your spark module unit. This is about twice the cost or more.
