Simpson Oven Door won't close all the way

Hi, I was searching this and many other forums and all were saying that if you have a 10mm gap and non adjustable hinges you need to replace the door .... Not so!
I have a Simpson wall oven with non adjustable hinges (model 63H914S) and I found that by carefully grinding the area indicated on the hing while in the open position with the hing lock in place the door now closes perfectly.
By leaving the door in place it is easy to check if it closes after each grind. (grind both hinges and test/check the gap on each side). The photo shows where I ground. hope this helps and save some money.

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.

oven door won't latch all the way


Hello,I think the door hinges are non adjustable, and the only solution is to replace them as a pair.
There should be some kind of latch mechanism at the end of the hinge where it is fastened to the door to compress the hinge to enable you to remove them.
Thanks
