Oven Door Gasket How to Replace an Oven Door Gasket?

Have issues with your Oven? Unable to fix it? Have you bought a new oven and are wondering how to fix the seal of the oven? Or do you want to replace the oven door seal or door gasket? Hope this blog can help you to find solutions for your queries. 

Generally, there are two types of oven door seals. One with the corner of 90 degrees and the other with rounded curves. Depending upon the oven type choose the seal that you want to replace. Also measure the sides of the oven, as each oven has a different size, and accordingly choose your gasket. There will be an instruction guide that comes along with the Oven door gasket you order. You have the dimensions and also the instructions of how to fix it. 

Lets us see what you need to fix it: 

  • Make sure you do not have any plugs connected to the power. There is no power supply to the oven.
  • Clean all the food particles inside the oven and check if any food particles are stuck in any corners of the oven.
  • If you have a self-cleaning option in your oven, simply press that and do not use any other methods to clean the oven.
  • Use vinegar to remove the stains if any food residue is left in the oven.
  • Open the oven door, at the bottom you can find hallow space in between the doors. Before inserting stretch the seal with your hands as much as you can (it helps in the expansion and also becomes flexible while moving or when fixing it.)
  • Also, measure the inches that need to be fit in, and make marks at the ends. Using scissors make the cut and fit in the hollow space. Repeat the process on the other three sides and fit in.  
  • Along with the oven, you will have a metallic connector and you can insert the door gasket or seal using it. If any old gasket is inside it, remove it. The connector which is given acts as a substance to interlink the gaskets.
  •  When you are fitting it in, make sure you are 100% happy with the fittings. 
  • After the fittings are done, plug the equipment and give a test to check if it's working properly or not. 
  • If you have a manual that comes with an oven follow the instructions for better guidance.
  • Use an oven thermometer or keep it handy to keep a track of the heating process as it is working in the correct way or not.

Are you confused about removing the gasket?

Removing an oven door gasket is not that big task. If you are used to it you can remove it with your hands well. Using pillars will help you to remove the gasket from the door. If it is not coming out easily, though you have removed the pins or screws, use pliers or the edge of the screwdriver and place it at the deep margin of the gasket and try pulling it out, am sure this will work out for you. 

Why my oven does not close properly?

Is your oven door not closing properly? Do not know the reason and get confused about what exactly is happening? Make sure you have followed all the steps below:

  • Before checking it, make sure you unplug the equipment.
  • While closing the door, check if any bowl or dish is oversize. Remove if anything is inside and make sure your oven is empty.
  • Check whether all the switches on the oven are off.

Followed these steps, yet the Oven door is not closing? Maybe it is time to open the door completely and check it out. You will need a screwdriver to remove the door completely. Make sure you don't hurt yourself in this process. The link between the oven and the door has connectors, gently remove it using the screwdriver and separate the door from the oven. Keep all the screws securely as you will need them to rearrange them back.

  • Check if any defects are present in the door, if any coil is disturbed or the gasket may be damaged. In this case, you need to remove the oven door gasket and place a new one.

How do I know if my oven seal is broken?

Have issues with your oven? Questioning yourself about the oven seal? If you have the below issues, they are the signs that you have a bad seal or the seal is broken.

  • You have set the correct temperature but the food doesn't get heated. 
  • Correct features are set in the oven but food does not get cooked. 
  • Taking a long time to cook.
  • While you are trying to close the door and the door is not getting closed, check if the seal is working properly or not. Either the seal should be replaced or the setting of the seal is misbalanced.

If you are having any of these issues, then your seal is cracked, torn, or deeply frayed. In such case, the seal should be replaced. A visible check would be fine. Look for any cracks in the seal. 

Safety Message:

  • Make sure you use electric-resistant gloves and shoes.
  • Do not hurt yourself
  • If you are not sure about the process please call the well-trained technician.
  • Try cleaning your oven with a toothbrush if there are any food spills left.
  • Make sure you have good voltage running so that it doesn't trip more.
  • Make sure there is no electricity supplied while you are trying to fix things. All the plugs are removed and nothing is connected. 
  • Keep a screwdriver, and a fire extinguisher handy. 

Make a habit of checking regularly with your Oven door gasket or seal if it's working properly or not. Keep an eye on the lighting tools inside the oven as well. Never try to do remedies or DIY yourself until you are sure that you can perform that action.
