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 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.

Oven door doesnt close well

I'm not familiar with your oven but most oven doors are very similar in operation. When the door doesn't close well it's generally because the hinges have been stretched/bent when the oven door has been open. To see if this is the case, open the door fully. If it's stretched the door will open past 90 degrees (slope down instead of being horizontal). The easiest way to fix this is to bend it back. Place something as a spacer between the door and the oven on both sides (like a spanner handle or anything strong and about 8mm thick) as close to the hinge as possible. Close the door against it carefully and push the door closed. Do it a little at a time and remove the spacers and try the door each time until you are happy that it closes nicely again. It should be spring loaded closed slightly.

Oven door won't stay closed, light on

If the door opens past the 90 degree level position, it means you need new door hinges.

We a kitchen aid oven the door was accidentally lock. Can you find out how to open it? Whirlpool owns kitchen aid

  • Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door

  • Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.

    Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.

    Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    Kleenmaid Stainless Steel oven door will not close properly.

    The door hinge is probaly broken or could just be the spring. Open the door to the 45 degree position (halfway) and pull on the door. It should come off the hinge assembly. Slide out the oven a little to access the screws for the hinge to see what is broken or wore out.

    I accidentally activated the oven lock while door open, and now I cannpt un;ock mechanism

    If you've interrupted the clean cycle by opening the door and the latch engaged and now the door can't be closed, there may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

    Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinge location.
    Carefully apply pressure on the door to push the door closed.
    This will often re-set range door hinges.
