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.
