Adjustment on this mystery item is always done at the hinges, slacken them off a little and move the door to how you want it and then tighten them back up.

SOURCE: lofra five burner gas cooker, oven door not closing properly,

I had the same problem and took the door apart. The hinge has a spring inside which is held in place by a long rivet. The metal of the rivet is too soft and it bends and snaps. You cannot get a replacement hinge anywhere. I even tried Italy and France. Lofra won't speak to you by e-mail or phone. The next thing that happened was the element disintegrated in the ovan. These are the worst cookers on the market.

Yes but try removing the door usually a small lever on the hinge or just lower the door a bit and lift it off. Then put it back on and make sure it sits back down into the hinges. We had one that did the same thing and the door was just a bit out of the hinge.

The 2 doors on my Maytag SXS aren't even in the front when they close. The refig side sticks out. The doors are otherwise level and even in all respects. I adjusted top & bottom hin


Hello Joe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

This was your first time setting the gap between the doors. So, I will share with you the various ways to adjust the doors gap.

1.) On the bottom of some doors there are adjustment screws for pitching the door left or right to set the gap. This was a good design idea, but there is not locking nut to hold the setting. Opening and closing the door will remove the setting. So, if you have these adjust screws, we will forget them.

2.) Lets try this: Adjust the front leveling bolts. Loosen the top of the door hinges. If the gap is smaller at the top, lower the leveling bolt up on the left hand side. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to raise. Pound on the doors to free them to adjust. If the gap is smaller on the bottom, on the right jacking screw, raise the jack bolt by turning the jack bolt clockwise. Once again, pound on the door to free for the adjustment. Then tighten to top door hinges.

3.) OK, This did not set the gap. The gap between the door is different depending on the model. Determine the gap which you would like to set. Using something solid like pieces of wood (do not use cardboard it will crush), loosen the top hinges, evenly space the wedges and tape them to the door. Now tighten the top hinges and remove the wedges.

4.) Ok, This did not set the gap. Look on the bottom of the door at the hinge. You have a matching set of grommets. These grommets interlock when the doors close to keep the doors closed. These are high wear components. The doors rest on these components. One grommet set may be more warn than the other affecting the door gap

Refrig door does not seal


First off, make sure nothing is stopping the door from closing completely. If the door is closing properly, then using a hair dryer, heat the gasket until soft and pliable. You can carefully stretch it towards the cabinet. There is a magnet in the gasket all the way around on the mating portion. While the gasket is soft, the magnet will pull the gasket until contact is made with the cabinet. Once a good seal has been accomplished, allow to door to remain closed for 30 minutes. The seal will cool down, and the new shape will be maintained. After that, close the door on a dollar bill. Gently tug the portion of the bill on the outside of the door from one corner to the other. There should be some resistance to your pulling. If the bill feels loose, apply more heat to the gasket in that area to improve the seal. DO NOT HOLD THE HAIR DRYER IN ONE PLACE TOO LONG AS IT WILL DAMAGE THE GASKET, AS WELL AS THE PLASTIC LINER.

I have a LiftMaster garage door opener.When the door closes it is not completely closed on the right side. It has about a 1/4" gap at the bottom. It starts closing evenly but when it is about 2 feet...


SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY NEED A SERVICE TECH.

IF THE CABLES ARE NOT RUNNING PROPERLY ON THE DRUMS IT WILL CAUSE THE PROBLEM YOU DESCRIBE. OR THE DOOR COULD BE CATCHING ON SOMETHING (DOOR JAB, TRIM ETC.) AS IT CLOSES.

I DON'T RECOMEND TRYING TO ADJUST THIS YOUSELF A PRO CAN DO IT IN ABOUT 10 MIN. IF YOU START MAKING ADJUSTMENT WOITHOUT KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING YOU WILL PROBABLY JUST MAKE IT WORSE.

THE SERVICE CALL SHOULD BE $ 50.00 - $100.00

ALSO DON'T CALL A HANDYMAN ETC. ONLY A QUALIFIED DOOR REPAIR TECH.

HOPE THIS HELPS

It sounds like a door spring problem. Here is a website with a video of adjusting a door with extension springs.

Check the lower hinge of that door for a broken closer cam. The upper hinge is adjustable and adjusting the corners in the front will shift the cabinet to align the door also.

How to adjust the passenger door on 95 nissan pathfinder


There are hing bolts to adjust the gap in the door on the top and bottom, loosen them and move the door into position and then close and make sure the gap is even all around. If the door is not latching properly then there are two star screws in the door jam you can loosen and move the latch hook out and tighten back down to get the door to latch tighter, however if the plastic is wore off the striker plate it needs to be replaced or it will rattle no matter what you do.

Bottom freezer door on our LG is out of adjustment. One side closes tight the other has a .25" gap.


The easiest way to fix that is to pull the freezer door all the way out and give it a good little tug, you will see the plastic covers on the side rails there will be a little gap about one inch on each side make sure those gaps are even. Your door should be aligned

Will not seal. new from sears.


The description below is for a gap at the top of the door. Adjust the procedure for gap at bottom by "twisting" the door in the opposite direction.

I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

Door not closing properly.


take door off and pack bottom hinge with washers. make sure hingebrackets on cabinet are tight. however, door hanging a bit should not really affect sealing. if seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently
