This comment applies to most electric ovens that have drop down doors with hinges at the bottom.
The hinges are not adjustable, and in every case the problem is caused by one or both hinge springs being weak.
The only solution, is to replace both oven door hinges together.

SOURCE: Thermador oven door won't close all the way -

Have exactly the same situation. All the solutions I have seen talk about replacing the hinges or seal. But people report the same thing happens a month later. Looking hard at the door what it needs is something to pull it right at the top. So I installed a rare earth magnet from www.kjmagnetics.com I used part number BX884DCS which costs $4. It mounts with a couple of screws and I put it on the door a couple of inches down from the top.
Its possible that heat from the oven will kill the magnet over time but for $4 I can replace it for a lot less than hinges and it works great. The door closes more securely than it ever did when the oven was new.
Hope this helps.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Yes this has been a fairly common issue with the Thermador wall ovens as well as their freestanding ranges.

Typically the remedy will be replacing the hinges, but there is a "fix" you can attempt in the interim. At least in hope of keeping the oven light from being on all the time, hence damaging the control board which houses the oven lights transformer.


The issue with those Thermador wall oven and freestanding range doors ( especially on the freestanding "professional" line ) is the weight of the door is so great, the hinge will actually move slightly over time, other times the entire hinge will need to be replaced.

This is what I'd recommend ( also official Thermador remedy, rest assured as I am a authorized factory trained Thermador service provider ) before pronouncing the hinges need replacing though.

**This does require a somewhat involved repair, so if you don't feel completely comfortable or have any reservation to trying this, please call in an local authorized Thermador ( B/S/H/ ) service provider.**


Recommendation: Adjust the door box hinge per instructions below.


1. Pull the oven away from the wall about 12".


2. Remove the hinge box cover plates.


3. Remove the vertical side trim piece. It covers one of the screws that must be loosened.


4. Loosen the 4 screws that secure the hinge box.


5. Place a rolled up dishtowel at the bottom of the door and close the door and apply light pressure to the door while re-tightening the four screws.


See fig below



6. Re-install the hinge box covers & side trims.


7. Re-install and secure the oven.

That should do it, ( or as stated, improve the situation ) if the hinges are too far gone they will need to be replaced unfortunately.


Let me know if you require further assistance or if indeed this solved your problem.

Thank you for choosing FixYa today and good luck going forward.

Oven light will not turn off


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Does the light shut off if you push the door closed slightly ? Or if you push the door switch closed manually. It is located on the grill of the oven...i.e.

Let me know, if so the door hinge needs adjustment. If not, it may be a control issue.

I'll watch for your reply.

How do I remove the oven door


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Most if not all Thermador owners manuals have this outlined in them, however, here you go.




Removing the Oven Door


  • Fully open the oven door.
  • Raise the U-clip over the hook on each of the hinges to the "locked" position (see illustration below). This will prevent the hinge from snapping closed when the door is removed.
  • Grasp the door by the sides toward the back. Raise the front of the door several inches (there will be some spring resistance to overcome because of the hinge being locked). When the front of the door is high enough, you will be able to lift the hinges to clear the indents.
  • Pull the hinges out of the slots in the oven front frame.



To Replace the Oven Door


  • Grasp the sides of the door at the center and insert the ends of the hinges into the slots in the oven front frame as far as they will go (see illustration below).
  • With the door open all the way, lower the two locking clips.
  • Raise the oven door and make sure that it fits evenly with the front sides.


DOOR HINGE WARNING:

**CAUTION** With the door off, never release the levers and try to close the hinges. Without the weight of the door, the powerful springs will snap the hinges closed with great force.


Let me know how you make out or if anything is unclear. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Good Luck,

Macmarkus :)

The oven door (Model SMW272) does not close completely. It may need an adjustment or a new seal?


Generally speaking, if a oven door does not close properly, and it is a drop down door, then it usually due to weak springs in the hinges.
There is no adjustment provided, so the only solutiom is to replace both door hinges.
Please rate my nsolution.
Thankyou.

Thermador oven door won't close all the way - seems like the seal is holding it open. I can press and hold it closed, but if I release, it pops out. The oven light stays on all the time. Model smw272
