Oven Door will not close properly

I believe the springs on my oven door have weakened to the point where the door cannot close completely. The oven light does not go off. Is the solution replacement of the spring?

Bosch oven. Lower door does not close. i have checked the seal which seems ok. there is 0.5cm gap
Any solution please

    I've removed the door and made sure the hinges go in correctly but I still have a gap and hot air blows out when it is on. Is it possible to remove the inner plate of the door and access any adjusters?

Don't buy Bosh. This is a common problem with them and they are not interested in a fix (ie a thinner door seal would help or adjustment to springs...

The oven door doesn't close tight

Hello, Anna -

The problem of your oven door not closing tightly could be caused by one of several problems:
* A problem with the door hinges
* Broken oven door springs
* A problem with the gasket inside the edge of the oven door

This article from the San Francisco Examiner newspaper describes the problems and how to fix them:

Best wishes.

Door will not close completly

When you say "oven door will not close properly", do you mean that it closes but not tightly against the rubber seal on the oven cavity?

Or is it some other closing problem?

If it is the former, then it is a sign of the door hinge springs wearing out. The solution to this is to replace both hinges on the offending door.

Oven door won't close completely

You will probably have to replace the springs I doubt if they can ve fixed. you can open the door all the way and you will see a hole in the spring just inside the door. you can stick a nail in that hole, both springs that will hold the door open and you can lift the door out and check the springs I will tell you to have patience its not easy.

Oven door not closing properly

If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

We have a 30 in prostyle electric double wall oven - the oven takes forever to preheat and the doors do not seal tightly when they are closed.

Hello- Many ovens use spring-loaded hinges to carry the weight of the door. Over time, these springs weaken or the hinge gets bent just enough to not fully close door. The door gasket can also become flat and stiff, compounding problem. Any small gap releases heated air, and oven will not heat up properly. Replacing the door springs should solve problem.- Thanks -Ed

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.

Thankyou.
