After 12 years I finally decide to fix it. It feels like the door gasket is preventing the door from closing all the way. I adjusted the gasket and the door closes to within 1/2 inch now. I can push on the door and will will fully close but it springs back when I release it. I have heard that I am not the first one to have this problem. Did dacor maybe install a gasket that was too thick at the factory?

Thanks

Moved to Kitchen forum.

 

You need to install the new door hinge kit Part number: 701034

Part number: 701034

 

The springs have gotten weak and aren't pulling the door in tight any longer.

That was my original thought. Since new this unit has had the problem of the door not fully closing. When I push on the door there is a soft resistance like it is pushing on the gasket. There is no way that installing new spings would overcome this resistance which leads me to believe the problem lies elsewhere. After adjusting the gasket the the distance to fully closed was reduced from 3/4 of an inch to 1/2 half inch. Is it possible that the factory installed the wrong spring?

On almost ALL self cleaning ovens, the door does not close tightly until you put it into self clean, this is a normal condition.

Thanks.....that answer makes a lot of sense. The more I learn about Dacor appliances the more I realize that I made a huge mistake when I remodeled my house and installed their stuff.

There's nothing at all wrong with DACOR, replace you're hinges and be good once again.

In my opinion, DACOR has the most accurate ovens you can buy.

Not to start an argument but I strongly disagree with you.

I think I am starting to show my age, but the most reliable appliances were the old fashioned ones from the 60's, 70's and 80's before all these electronic controls, energy saving fan motors, and before everything was made out of cheap plastic. Today, the brand name doesn't mean much anymore.
