SOURCE: Oven Door will not close properly

Cleaning lady knocked the hinge springs off my oven door, so i'm
trying to figure out how to reattach them.
On My GE44 stove, there is an adjustment for the spring, where it attaches at the bottom (inside the stove), there are several holes the spring can be attached to. (I found his described in a little "Pub. No. 31-0773/SR4034 paper in an envelope taped to the back of the stove)

Doing this while the stove is installed may be a challenge though,
(that's basically the problem i'm having) it would be easy if the stove was upside down.

SOURCE: lofra five burner gas cooker, oven door not closing properly,

I had the same problem and took the door apart. The hinge has a spring inside which is held in place by a long rivet. The metal of the rivet is too soft and it bends and snaps. You cannot get a replacement hinge anywhere. I even tried Italy and France. Lofra won't speak to you by e-mail or phone. The next thing that happened was the element disintegrated in the ovan. These are the worst cookers on the market.

HGS7152UC bosch oven door won't seal

Oven doors are designed to have some movement in and out to accommodate sealing against the gasket. If you're not getting a good seal check the condition of the gasket. If it's hard and inflexible you'll need to replace it.

About 5-6 years of normal use can make these hard and inflexible.

I just looked and Bosch calls this the 'Door Seal' pn 1052639
