Stove door won't shut

Issue description:

If the door of the electric stove does not close or is not fixed and does not hold, then the reason may be both in the breakdown of the locking mechanism, and in banal inattention. In any case, if you encounter problems with the door, we advise you not to experiment, but first read the material on this page. Most of the reasons that prevent the door from closing can be eliminated by yourself, but it is better for a specialist to repair and adjust, for example, hinges.

Stove door won't shut

Solution:

Not only the door can be skewed, but also the plate itself, for example, if it is unevenly installed. Carry out a visual inspection and if you notice any deviations, adjust the legs of the cooker. As for the deformed door, it is unlikely that it will be possible to completely straighten it, it is easier to replace it.

Over time, the door hinges wear out, and they no longer manage to firmly press the heavy oven door to the body. The hinges can be adjusted with a regular screwdriver, but badly worn hinges must be replaced. It should be borne in mind that the door hinges are attached to the plate body itself, and often on rivets: to replace the hinges yourself, you will have to almost completely disassemble the plate, so we recommend that you entrust this work to a knowledgeable specialist. Springs that tightly close the door can also weaken or break: you can try to tighten the springs, but the broken ones will have to be replaced.

The door is constantly closing and opening, and it is not surprising that over time, its locking lock, if the oven is equipped with it, can wear out and break,. A faulty lock is usually replaced, and it is better to entrust this difficult job to an experienced craftsman.

If you have not cleaned the oven and its door for a long time, we strongly advise you to correct this annoying omission: dirt in the places where the door adheres to the stove body will naturally interfere with its tight closing.

Rubber parts can wear out over time, harden, and hardened parts seal will interfere with the tight closing of the door. Such a seal can only be replaced, and it is better not to pull with this, since the hot air coming out of the oven can damage other parts of the stove or surrounding furniture.

During long-term operation, the seal may come off in places from its original place, and this will interfere with tightly closing the door. You can easily correct it yourself: carefully insert the displaced parts of the seal into a special groove.

First you need to understand the reasons for the blockage: perhaps you yourself turned on the child protection or started the oven self-cleaning process - in the latter case, it is blocked until the end of the procedure. To remove the blockage, it is usually enough to disconnect the stove from the mains for 30-60 seconds. But modern stoves are so complex that it is often necessary to perform a certain procedure to unlock the oven door - refer to the instructions. The door may not open due to a broken lock or control module: in this case, you will have to call the wizard. If you need help with stove repair, call us right now!
