A hinge bolt/screw may have loosened to allow the door to be out of alignment. Maybe try to flex the door side to side and look for movement to isolate which bolt/screws may be loose.

The oven door doesn't close tight

Hello, Anna -

The problem of your oven door not closing tightly could be caused by one of several problems:
* A problem with the door hinges
* Broken oven door springs
* A problem with the gasket inside the edge of the oven door

This article from the San Francisco Examiner newspaper describes the problems and how to fix them:

Best wishes.

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all

same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.

Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle Original bolts installed at the factory came loose and dislodged from the door handle.... no problems but this... i can not screw the handle back myself.. i tried......

We had the same problem. We had some tough epoxy that we squirted into the bolt holes, then screwed the bolts in. It took two of us, one to hold the door together and one to screw in the bolts. We didn't use the oven until the epoxy set, but now we no longer have a problem with the door falling apart every time we open the oven door!

Ovendoor not closing for tight seal...

You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.

Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle

I had the same problem with my stove. I tried to replace, glue the srews and other things, but nothing really worked well. It's a shame that Kennmore has such a design flaw in their stoves, but did nothing to help their customers.

Here is the solution that worked for me:

Fix the thread with helicoils (these are inserts that create a new threat in the handle). You can find the instructions how to use the helicoils on Youtube.
I replaced the crews with new screws that fit to the helicoil threat and now the handle is safely secured.

Regards

Michael

Oven door just barely closes- light stays on

put a tea towel on both sides of the door [folded] down by the hinges then close door. gently push the door close try a few times with a little pressure.
