Bluestar Range - Oven door alignment

Posted by Nora_PDS (My Page) on

Not a heat related issue - I love the range and my children know that it gets hot. But as for the main door on a 48" Bluestar do the following pictures say that there is a problem with the door? (The movers did not use it as a lifting point.

And the following dumped out of the simmer burner... I am completely ok with it since I know what it is - I just thought I should note it.

Nora: I had that exact same issue one time after puting my range back together after cleaning it. It was really simple to fix but I honestly don't remember what I did. I think I either took the door off and put it back on or I simply pushed on the top (or was it the bottom near the hinge?). And it went back into its proper seating. Hope that info helps.

What dumped out of the simmer burner?

Looks like beads from bead blasting or more likely, tumbling/ barrel finishing.

Concerning the beads, I think Alexr is right about it in one-way or another. They are basically leftovers from the manufacturing process. I should have taken a better shot so I did :)

TyGuy - We tried taking off the door and re-attaching it, pushing the bottom and the top to no avail... (not hard mind you). The misalignment persists. I turned off all of the lights in the kitchen and tossed a couple of flashlights into the main oven to see if it seals correctly and I was only able to see a pin-prick of light here or there. Do you think I should contact anyone about it?

I would have someone take a look at it.

Absolutely! Even a pin prick will let a lot of heat out. Plus it doesn't look good and just "isn't right".

Alexr/TYGuy,

So "adell's appliance in Manteca, CA" is not calling back... Do you know of anyone that I can contact?
