Q:

Why won't my Maytag oven door shut tight, model number 790.96512400? What can I do?

A:

In reference to your Maytag range, model number 79096512400;

Condition : The oven door hinges can be damaged if excessive weight is placed on the door when it is in the open position

Note: The door seal on new range will compress over the life of the unit. This may cause the door on a new range to appear to be slightly open. This is normal for a new range

Correction : Verify that the door is not closing by doing a paper pull test. If the door does not close properly, the hinge receptacle mounted to front frame may be bent.

Note: Each kit contains 2 hinges and 2 receptacles. Parts must be changed in pairs
