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

If you take the hinges off, you can fit some washers between the hinges and the door to make it close it further. Probably not as good as new hinges, but cheaper. 2mm of washers will close a 5mm gap

    Hi! This solution seems really good and cheap. Please let me ask you where exactly the washers should be put? Will it be the place where I hook the hinges in or do I have to take the door apart and put the washer somewhere there? Thank you for you reply!

This can happen if you put dishes on a open door or in my cas a child sitting on it. in that case. get a block of wood and a mallet. Give the the top bolds a controlled whack. and hey presto fixed.

    Hi ... I guess the same thing happened to my oven door ... Would you be so kind to tell me where exactly do I have to hit ("top bolds")?? Or if the hinges have to be changed ... where can I find the same hinges for a FRANKE (design glass) oven? Thank you!

The door hinges are not adjustable, the only solution is to replace both door hinges as it is the springs that are weak.

Oven door closes but does not fit snugly against the face of body of oven. have taken door out and put back in/on with no joy, owner of oven thinks it has been like this since new.


It is like that on the bottom, of my own door of my oven.
Since new! On the older oven I had, you lifted the door and it's hinges up and out and the door came off to make the old way of cleaning the oven easier - when you put it back on, the door would pull up tight on all sides - new ones' seem to have a gap

Oven door won't close


if you look around under the handle or under the top of the stove on the front there should be thin lever. This lever is designed to lock the oven door closed tightly when you are activating the self cleaning oven feature. It is likely that someone accidentally lock the lever while the door to the oven was open. Simply find that locking lever return it to the unlocked position and your door should shut fine.

We have a Jenn Air Wall over that the door will not close air tight. They have replaced the hinges but you can actually stick a thumb between the top part of the oven and the door. They say it's supposed...


there's a door gasket that seals it not the metal part of the door so you might be able to stick your thumb in there as long as the seal on the door is closing tightly to the frame,when you open the door it should be on a 90 degree angle,before you had new hinges put on the door, most likely the door sagged lower to the floor and didn't close properly,if you think alot of heat is escaping you could have a bad door gasket.so open the door,look at it from the side,it should look like an L or at a 90 degree angle or even up a little,if it is the hinges aren't the problem if you think to much heat is escaping,call whoever did the work for you and have them check the door seal or gasket same thing.you didn't send the model number so i don't know what seal you need,go here and watch video should be similar and you can put your model number in to find correct part

hope this helps you out,if heat is coming out with door closed and you have new hinges this is most likely what's wrong

It is always slightly open at the top.


I sounds as if you are talking about your oven door. If so it shouldn't be, it should be sealed tight. If the seal at the top of the door is open you will lose a lot of heat from the oven. The solution is to get the oven door springs replaced.

It sounds like yous stove is working fine. Cycles fine. If you think the stove is cycling more often than when new then ck the seal on the door. You may be loosing heat.

Oven takes forever to heat up - its a thermador double oven - me272


Hello- Check these things first-  Door seals tend to get stiff over time. This is normal. Door hinges can become loose or get bent a bit, causing door to not close tight. This little gap can allow heat to escape, causing extended pre-heat times and frequent cycling of elements. If door doesn't seem to pull shut tightly- hinges will need to be replaced. If oven appears to operate normally otherwise, this should solve problem.  Let me know if the info helps- have more if needed- Thanks  - Ed

Heat escaping, uneven baking, longer cooking times


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.

Thankyou.
