The oven repair if the door does not close

The first thing necessary to do when you find that your oven doesn’t work properly due to door issues is to check the door for mechanical damage and skewed hinges. The next step is to thoroughly clean the door contour from food debris, grease, and dust.

Also, check the seal for deformation and wear. In addition to the above reasons, the door may not close due to a breakdown of the opening (closing) mechanism, as well as wear or breakage of the hinges. Contact our Toronto appliance repair specialists to quickly fix the problem and let your cooking device to work as it should.

Why the oven won’t close the door

Today, many oven users are faced with the fact that their oven door can’t be closed. This is a very widespread issue that can lead to very serious problems. The oven door must fit snugly against the contour of the unit, otherwise, heat loss is inevitable.

This problem can be caused by several key factors:

  • weak fastening;
  • wear of the closing mechanism;
  • dirty door contour;
  • wear of seals;
  • door deformation.

If the oven door does not close, then the first thing trained appliance repair professionals check is the work of the mechanism that holds the flap in the open and closed position. Most probably it will be necessary to disassemble and completely clean it from grease and small debris. This is the most common cause of failure. After that, the oven repair specialist assembles the component in the reverse order and installs the door.

Many ovens are equipped with special seals that ensure a hermetically sealed door wing. These components are made of a refractory material which inevitably breaks down and deforms over time. If the door does not close tightly, then the integrity of the sealing layer should be checked.

Like any other kitchen and household appliances, the oven needs regular preventive cleaning, and this directly applies to its door. Oily splashes and food residues that inevitably form during cooking can form a dense layer on the oven door contour. Such dirt should be removed mechanically or using special detergents.

How to clean the oven from heavy contamination (the trick with heating)

Often, in order to easily clean the oven of old grease and dirt, the dirt must first be melted. Here’s how to do it right:

  • Preheat the oven to 40-50 degrees.
  • When the chamber has reached the desired temperature, open the door and allow the oven to cool slightly. It should be hot, but not scalding.
  • Apply a ready-made cleaning agent (non-toxic, preferably specially designed for ovens and recommended by the manufacturer) onto the dirt. Use enough of the detergent but not too much to avoid flowing it on the floor.
  • At this stage, you can start cleaning immediately. Or to get the best result, you can close the door, let the oven stay heat for another 5 minutes and then start cleaning.
