Oven Door not Opening?

Most Electrolux, AEG and Zanussi ovens have a door that can be simply unclipped and lifted from the hinge. The mechanism for this can vary on some models so please refer to your user manual for the correct procedure.

Check the hinges. If these have become unclipped the door may not close flush with the oven cabinet. Firstly check the metal hinge clips to see if one has lifted preventing the door from closing.

Freestanding cookers may not close properly if the appliance is not level.  It is worth check that the appliance is on flat base and feet adjusted accordingly.

The glass is damaged.  All AEG, Electrolux and Zanussi cookers and ovens have toughened safety glass and can withstand significant pressure.  On a rare occasion the glass may shatter if it has been knocked very hard or subjected to extremes of temperature followed by a knock to the glass pane.

The glass is designed to break in to many pieces and can appear as an entirely shattered sheet of glass which if knocked, the glass will fall from the door frame.  If this happens, sweep the glass away carefully and contact an engineer to inspect the appliance.  All ovens have more than one pane of glass so it is important to understand what caused the glass to shatter.
