FYI, neither of the 2 toaster racks is connected to the door in any way. Are you looking at the right appliance? I have a Hamilton Beach/Proctor Silex table oven model # XXXXX (#31197 is the functionally same model also). The glass door on the front doesn't close all the way. Right now it's partially open. When it closes properly one hears a click. I've tried closing the door in different ways with no luck.
That is my oven!
There is ONE hinge on the left side as you face the oven. There are NO visible
screw(s) that connect it to the side of the oven. There is a single screw above it.
There is a flat sliver flange at the bottom front of the oven right next to the oven door. This is connected to the oven with four screws. I've tried tightening & untightening all 4 screws; no joy.
The problem appears to be the hinge on the left side that goes into the side of the oven. I was just able to get the door to close & when it did there was an audible click from the hinge as the door closed properly.
There is a single screw on the left side inside the oven that appears to go into the hinge mechanism (there is NO screw in the same location on the right side). I've tried tightening this screw but it it will not tighten; it just keeps turning. I cannot tell if it's stripped or what.
