Kitchenaid built-in oven door adjustment

5 posts in this topic

I have Kitchenaid built in oven Model  KEBS107dSS10.  Someone(no names, please) let the the door drop and now the door is out of alignment.  Any suggestions on how to adjust it?

Thanks

DOH!  I hate when that happens. 

Sounds like you bent one of the hinges.  You're better off just replacing both as a set.

It sounds as though the door hinges are now pranged (?) and most likely will need to be replaced if they cannot be straightened out. Either way, the door will have to come off in order to facilitate ant further diagnosis.

Thanks, I will check the hinges.  There is also a pair of hinge receivers on the oven.  Is there any adjustment on the placement of these receivers?  It looks like one of them may have shifted slightly, but I don't want take it apart if there is no adjustment.

Hello, my unhinged friend.  The only adjustment for these hinges is for tension, not position; once they are bent, they are ruined and must be cast into the fire which is never quenched.  I am afraid that your only recourse at this point is to replace the hinges.
