Default Oven door not closing
Model Number: ACF4255AW   Brand: Amana   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hello,

We have an Amana ACF4255AW and the door doesn't close properly. I typically have to lean into it to make sure the light goes off during cooking. Also, when we ran the cleaning cycle, it actually melted the inside black trim piece.

Should we replace the springs and the trim piece or just call someone to look at it?

Thanks!

You probably have to replace the door hinges together with the hinge receivers (#19 on the diagram). I'm afraid I did not get clear which trim did you mean. Can you refer to the diagram?

I think it is this part: AP4041612. I ordered from this website a couple of months ago when it happened. We thought it was just that piece, apparently we were wrong.

Thanks!
Michelle

Michelle,

If I got it right, you replaced this maintop bracket (#11 on the diagram) but it did not solve the problem?

Spring is a part of the door hinge. Besides the door hinge or the hinge receiver it could be a slightly bend inner door layer or he door frame. I can only guess. The hardest part is to properly diagnose the problem and only you can do it because we can not see it.

Thanks. I really think it is the hinge/receivers. This was the other part (the one that melted AP4041769) It is white and black. It is a trim top piece.

How hard is it to change the receivers?

Thanks!

You have to pull the range out of the wall and remove the side panels.
