Whirlpool RDE2400P2 wall mounted oven - door does not close

This answer was rated:

Whirlpool RDE2400P2 wall mounted oven - door does not close squarely. Right hinge appears to stick out ~1/2 inch farther than the left hinge. Problem? Repairable?
Hi welcome to just answer my name is XXXXX XXXXX i will be helping you today with your problem.


If you lift the door slightly and push that corner in what happens.

It moved in a bit too far to close 100% squarely, but it did move in. How do I square it up?

Just by lifting the door slightly and push on the center of the door at the bottom see if that helps.

That appears to have done it - seems square now! One more question please - any idea on how it got out of whack in the first place?

The hinge could of slipped off the hinge pin inside the body of the oven.

Ok. I think I'll stop using the "hold ajar" fixture on either side of the oven door. Much much appreciated. Your help is well worth the money!

You are welcome.
