Magnetic Oven-Door Fix

November 30, 2016
Filed under 10-Minute-Tech

 
After many years of use, the oven door on our SunnyBrook 27FKS’s Wedgewood Vision stove no longer closed tightly, allowing heat to escape when we used the oven. I disassembled the door and inspected the springs and hinges, and found nothing broken or out of alignment. To fix this problem, I ordered 3⁄4-inch by 1⁄8-inch rare-earth magnets from Lee Valley Tools (www.leevalley.com; part number 99K32.11) and placed one magnet inside the door seal at each top corner.

This is the perfect fix! The oven door now closes tightly and stays closed, yet it’s easy to open.
