Re Neff B1451 oven door not sealing against oven body at top
The door and seal look fine and undamaged but the door does not pull tight against the oven body at top so fair amount of heat comes out during oven use although doesn't affect cooking. There is ca 0.5cm 'slack' ie after closing the door ,the door top can be manually pushed against the top of oven another ca 0.5cm. Is there any way of adjusting the door or hinges so that the door /seal sits 'tighter' against the oven body at top? Or is there any other way of fixing the problem? many thanks for your help Doug Kirkwood

Unlikely there would be no air spilling through the door seal because it is an oven and not a watertight compartment. An oven door seal needs to be hard wearing and able to withstand high temperatures and hot grease which limits the materials used, that and the fact few domestic oven doors actually latch these days but are held closed by springs meaning the pressure against the seal is relatively light which means the door, the shut and the seal must be manufactured to a high degree of accuracy and properly adjusted.
If the amount or air leakage is excessive perhaps the door could be adjusted or the seal replaced. Try asking around to find someone with a similar oven so you can compare...
I have a Neff B1451 oven and have removed the thermostat knob just by pulling and wiggling it. Thats all you do. If then you want to rpelace the thermostat, there are two screws holding the unit onto the oven which are accessed by taking the silver metal shrouds off first.
I had a problem similar. The bottom oven stopped working and the left hand set of controls and clock died. I had three figure quotes for repair. I took the main control unit out from behind the switches, its a pain to do. I took pictures of where the wires went to save confusion later. I removed the main switch unit from the control unit by gently pushing back the inbuilt plastic clips. dont loose the small white connector piece on the end of the switch shaft. I gently pulled the switch knobs from the front then the knob extensions through the same holes. once the unit was out I turned it upside down I could see where two solder tracks on the circuit board had burnt out. I gently cleaned them up and bridged the gap with two short tinned pieces of single core wire I had stripped. I used a soldering gun as it gets really hot really fast and wouldnt damage the components underneath.
the only fiddly bit when putting it back together was locating the bottom edge of the control unit in the little gulley, I had to bend the edge of the gulley down to make it easier. Once it was all back together it worked. Half an hour and I saved £300! Now I have to fix the hinges on the bottom oven door as it doesnt shut properly at the top. Any ideas anyone?
Either the seals need to be replaced, or you may have weak oven door hinges, and the door is not closing properly.
Only solution would be to replace both hinges if this is the case.
Please rate my solution.
If the seals have what appears to be hooks at the corners, then unhook the old seals and re hook the new seals into the holes in the front of oven .
If no hooks, then the front of the oven needs to be unfastened.to replace the seals.
Plz rate my solution.
