Trying to re-fit my servis oven door but its not happening!
I have worked out how to lock the mechanism and release once in place BUT the bottom part of the hinge doesnt stay in place once the door is shut and reopened - see pic, ref A points to the notch which sits on the bottom of the hole in the oven but it wont stay there it jumps off again when door is closed and re-opened. i have watched several videos online of how fit oven doors but none seem to be an exact match for this catch, what am i doing wrong?

It may be that a latch in the mechanism is broken. These things are designed to snap in and out of open.

Is the door fitted with two mechanisms? If so, They might have to be on the correct sides.

Other than that I don't know.
I assume there is one on each side of the door, you will need to fit both at the same time, so the door is offered up square & sometimes at an angle.
Dont force anything
thanks for replies so far.
yes there are 2 hinges and they on the correct sides and i can get them to fit but then once i close the door and reopen it they have come off at the bottom, where there only seems to be the notch holding them on?

I think that you are not putting the hinges into the slots properly, they must go in together & at a certain angle it could be 90 degrees or less. They vary, just dont force it.
