Dear friend,
ngfam at you service!

If its new your warranty is for 12 months!

If the dishwasher is 10 years or older its not worth investing money to fix it! The new ones are mush more efficient and clean better!

Either way this is a service problem to remedy!
Below I gave you a nation wide service thats very good!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,

FELL ONTO DISHWASHER DOOR AND NOW IT WONT CLOSE.HINGES MAY BE STRAINED.HOW DO I REPLACE HINGES


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

It sounds like it could be an issue with the hinges. I would recommend having a technician come out to your home to diagnose your appliance properly. I understand that someone fell into the door and the hinges are not closing but there could be another issue with the door. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Refidgerator door wont close


Check to see if something in the refrigerator is too long and hitting the door or in the door shelves hitting the interior shelves. If not then it is probably a hinge issue. Sometimes installing a coule spacers in the hinge pivot can lift the door enough to allow it to close.

I have to open and close the door several times to reset the timer wheel for a new cycle. cycle light


The timer works like a clock if you like. The cycle starts at 12:00 finishes around 11:55. When you open the door, the timer advances to the 12:00 position resetting itself to the start of a new cycle. The door has to be open for about 12 seconds. Check on the left side door hinge bracket and see how it plays on the door switch. old doors on the SR24's had an issue of the hinge screw coming loose which triggered the switch too soon. You should be able to rest the door against the tank without the maching running. The switch should close as the door engages the latch.

I have the SC272TB Double Oven. The top oven is fine but the lower one will not stay closed. Whether baking or not, the door seems to pop open just enough to turn the light on. We walk by and press the...


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.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

Both oven doors do not close properly. lights stay on & can't heat properly with doors not closing tight. is there an adjustment for these doors?


We have similar Jen Air double oven and with the same problem but only on the lower oven. The doors are interchangeable and the top door fits fine but the lower door will not close completely at the top. It does turn out the light but has never cooked properly. I checked with several appliance repair shops and the hinges are not adjustable, but since one door closes and our other doesn't it is not a hinge problem, just a defective design.

We let this go too long and are out of warranty so I doubt Jennair is going to do anything. I hope someone post a solution but it is clearly not problem with the henges but with the receptacle they go into.

Left door of the refer isn't closing properly, must manually feed it thru the little channel at the top for it to fold in and close


Hi,

check the door hinges a in place:
The door latch and lower hinge pin should hold your refrigerator door in place..
Uncover the door by removing the screws.Take the door off and pack bottom hinge with washers and make sure hinge brackets on cabinet are tight.
Check the seal is clean and pliable:
If seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently.
Check the refrigerator is properly leveled:
Adjust the middle hinge to straighten the lower portion of the door. Use a level to ensure the door is flush.

After fitting the door back again,check to see if the seal is touching on all sides when the door is closed. If not, you will need a new seal.Refrigerator is properly leveled.and hinges should be properly placed.

post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Without having model specifics...

The short and quick answer is that your door is sitting too low. The hinge may have to be removed and straightened. I ran into a similar issue with an Amana bottom freezer where the owner had excessive weight on the door which caused the light to stay on and the door to not seal properly.

The lower hinge had become bent downward causing the problem. The fix was to remove the door and straighten the hinge in a vise. The fix was not permanent since I had to go back less than a year later to fix the same problem, again the door was overloaded.
