Question about Kitchen Ranges
The oven door wont close properly at the top, are the hinges able to be adjusted?
Wow Must be a very old oven. The closes model number I can get is GBC26CK. But most hinges have no adjustment to them. They just need to be changed out.

In most cases door hinges needs to be replace but some time with old stile ovens and ranges help this trik:
1. Put small towels on right and left hinge between the door and range/oven body
2. Close door and gently push like you try to close completely.
3. Try several times.
4. Open door, remove towels and see if it helps
5. If not replace hinges

The springs in the hinges are probably tired. There is no adjustment you need to buy new hinges for about $50 for a set. Changing the hinges is a fairly simple operation for a person of average dexterity. I've just done the job on our oven.

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.
