Question about Bosch HBL 742 / HBL 746 Electric Single Oven
The door on our HBL745A oven does not close completely at the top. The door is not flush/parallel with the oven, but instaed is at a slight angle, being closer at the bottom of the oven than the top. Seems like an alignment/adjustment issue. Thanks.
My husband just figured this out.
- Follow Door removal instruction from the manual.
- There is a screw at the end of the hinge that can be adjusted.
- Adjust the screw to desired height.
- Secure lock nut.

I took the oven door off of my Bosch range and now I can't get it back on. I followed the directions on getting it off and it came right off, no problem.

Our Bosch convection oven interior is warped which prevents the door from sealing all the way. I use a gungy cord around the handle and hooked to the cabinet, very classy!!

We have a new Bosch stove with electric oven. The oven door shut tight when we got it but soon it wouldn't close all the way. The repairman installed new hinges but that didn't do anything - it still wouldn't close far enough to shut the light off. The repairman then installed a new inner door panel because he thought the old one looked warped, That solved the problem - the door shut tight. That was last week - last night my wife used the oven for the first time since the new door panel. She baked at 325 deg - when she was done, the door would not close any more. It looks to me like the inner door panel is warped again. I will call the repairman today.

We have the HBL 742A and have the same problem! We have had it adjusted several times and now our service guy says we must replace the hinges at $145 ea not including labor. Also the door handle has broken three different times and now the convection won't work which may be a circuit board at $300+ not including labor. This is a 3 1/2 year old high end appliance! If you are able to purchase an extended warranty I highly recommend it. We did not and so now looking for a replacement unit (not a Bosch). Good luck and please accept our sympathy.

On our oven (Bosch Evolution 700 Series HGS7152UC), the problem was getting worse and worse. I found it is was worsening simply because the hinges had started to come loose. I removed the door as suggested above, and although there are no adjustment screws on this model I tightened the now-loose hinge mounting screws. After tightening those screws it is a lot better, only leaks as much heat as it did when it was new which is tolerable. Still a bad design.
