How do I tighten the oven door on my Kenmore range?
The oven door is very heavy and seems to be sagging a bit, resulting in a gap of approximately 1/2 inch at the top of the oven door when closed. The door is tight at the bottom but won't come into contact at the top on its own. If I push the top closed, it will close completely but pop back open when I let it go. Is there some way to adjust the door hinges to close the gap at the top? Kenmore #790-96419401 range. Thank you very much.

There are no adjustments that can be made in order to make the door shut fully. Both oven door hinges will need to be replaced to correct the problem. Order hinge kit #5304445529. I recommend calling a service technician to install the kit once you have ordered and received the kit.
