Hi, I have a Whirlpool SF305PEEN, and the oven door won't shut properly (it was open all the way down, and I fell on it...ouch...). What do you think is the problem, and how can I fix it? Maybe the springs? It seems like there is no more tension, before, when the door was half shut, if I let it go, it will shut on it's own...not anymore...

Thank you

You need to replace both hinges on the door. The spring is built into them. To install, remove the door and disassemble it to install the new hinges.

Samurai, looking at those hooks on the above-pictured hinges -- what do they hook onto? I dont see hinge receivers on the parts list, and would suspect that the pins these hinges hook onto may be damaged as well?

The hinges latch on to pins in the oven frama and are most likely not bent.
The springs are sprung.

Hi, thank you ALL for the answers! Yes, Samurai, you are right, the springs should be attached inside, because I looked for them, but I couldn't find them, since they are inside the door...I'll order the hinges then.

Thx also for the pictures, fortunately, since I was the one who bought the stove, I stil have the booklet with the instructions, so I was able to remove the door, and put it back.

You're probably correct, I just tend to look a little deeper when I hear those words "I fell on it."
