Here at Cooker Spare Parts, we want to ensure that everyone can enjoy a home cooked meal, risk and problem-free. That is why we supply such a vast range of spare parts and create these helpful guides - like this one!
If you've noticed your cooker door isn't closing properly, you may start to find your meals taking longer to cook. This problem is due to a faulty oven door catch, which is really simple to fix.

How to Replace an Oven Door Catch

  1. Disconnect your appliance. It's important that you ensure your cooker is turned off from the mains to eliminate any risk to your safety whilst you perform your repair work.

  2. Remove the side panel of your cooker. You can do this by removing the two screws at the front and the back of your cooker.

  3. Remove the screws that are holding the catch in place.

  4. Now screw your new catch into place. Make sure the holes line up for the screws. Important note: The holes for the door catch are not threaded, but the screws provided will cut their own thread, allowing you to screw the latch securely in place.

  5. Test your new catch by closing your door. On some cooker models, you can adjust the striker pin to allow your door to close securely. You can do this by just screwing the pin out with a pair of pliers.

  6. Once you're happy, screw the side panel back in place.

Oven Temperature Setting
Have you noticed that your electric oven isn't getting as hot as you need it to be? Is your food under-cooked even after the full recommended cooking period has elapsed? Does every meal you make 'needs a few more minutes' than expected?
If so, the root of the problem may be your oven's thermostat. If your oven thermostat is not reaching the set temperature it may be time to replace it, here's some information so you can work out if that is what is wrong: 

What does an oven thermostat do?

You can think of the thermostat as the supervisor of your electric oven.
On its own, the oven element (i.e. the part of your cooker that actually heats up) doesn't know how hot to get - it just starts heating up when you turn the appliance on. The thermostat's job is to know what temperature you've asked for, measure the heat in the oven, and tell the element to switch off once the required temperature has been reached.
Of course, when the element stops heating up, the oven will gradually begin to cool, and so the thermostat is also responsible for recognising when the temperature drops - at which point it will wake up the element again.

What can go wrong with the oven thermostat?

If the thermostat stops working entirely, then in theory the element will just continue to heat up indefinitely, getting hotter and hotter until it burns itself out.
However, if you're experiencing the issues we mentioned earlier - thermostat not reaching the set temperature, food taking too long to cook - it's likely that your thermostat has a rather different problem. A thermostat that is improperly calibrated may misread the temperature in the oven, deducing that it is warmer (or cooler) than it actually is.
Here's how that plays out in practice:
  • You set the oven to 220°C.

  • The oven element starts heating up.

  • Before the temperature in the oven reaches 220°C, the faulty thermostat mistakenly gets a 220°C reading and tells the oven element to switch off.

  • Your cooker tells you that it's finished preheating, so you pop your food in...

  • ...only to find at the end of the cooking period that your meal is only half-cooked because the actual temperature in the oven was lower than the temperature you set.

Can I fix this problem?

Depending on the type of cooker you own, If your oven thermostat is not reaching the set temperature it may be possible for you to recalibrate your oven thermostat by measuring the actual temperature in your oven manually (using an oven thermometer) and adjusting the thermostat as needed.
If you need to replace your thermostat entirely, you can buy a new one using the following links:
