gender may be the traditional way to identify all people, including hypothetical ones, but that doesn't mean it isn't totally arbitrary and redundant.

topical mlady (darraghmac), Saturday, 5 January 2019 03:33 (ten months ago) link

none of it relevant to the door seal or hinges im afraid but i do respect ths code of full make/model and other categorisation info required for discussion-

topical mlady (darraghmac), Saturday, 5 January 2019 03:34 (ten months ago) link

um, if the heat leakage is def traceable to the gaskets sealing the door, then replacing them seems like the obviously indicated solution, especially if one seems loose to your (untrained) perceptions. I, too, have no idea how this ought to be accomplished, but seeking expert advice, assistance or direct employment strikes me as a sensible move.

A is for (Aimless), Saturday, 5 January 2019 03:39 (ten months ago) link

First question might!

pplains, Saturday, 5 January 2019 03:40 (ten months ago) link

1. Find the model number for the appliance (on the door or on the back).

2. Open a web browser (there are several, widely available).

3. Type the model number into the search bar of your preferred search engine. Among the first results should be: aftermarket replacement parts.

4. If there are user-replaceable gaskets, buy them and try that. The hinge itself as well. And it will likely come with precisely the right mounting hardware, eliminating guesswork on that front.

Personally I don't like the idea of just adding washers willy-nilly and hoping for the best.

i think the "take up less space" idea addresses a real concern. there are certainly some discussions where my input is not the most important input and i accept that. i was kind of just being descriptive about my experience--i "bristle against" it when i hear it, especially when it's more general and not just "take up less space in THIS conversation, specifically." (citation needed, i know--but i have heard this idea thrown around as a more general principle here and there)

― Trϵϵship

i think it's ok to feel hurt and diminished when someone says something like that, _especially_ when that person is making a general (posb overgeneral) complaint and isn't addressing something specific you've done. it's pretty easy for me to personalize a general criticism; i just try to realize that this is what i'm doing so i don't wind up going #notallmen about it.

And you know how this works.

Look at any online forum with helpful advice.

- "Hey, I've got a problem with my oven door. It won't close properly."

- "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, say you didn't try adding any washers to the hinges first."

- "Well..."

- "What's his make and model? They might not even make washers for that brand anymore."

- "Did you turn off all power to the house first? Unless you're a licensed professional...."

I changed the brake pads on my car with my dad over Xmas break. Turned out one of the calipers was bad so we had to replace one of those too.

Wasn’t as satisfying an experience as I wanted it to be tbh. Glad to have the time with dad, but man I’m paying for all car work from now on.

I've got this idea of setting up a home-repair YouTube channel with bad tim-and-eric graphic titles from iMovie, lots of holding the phone camera with the left hand while loosening bolts with the right hand, etc. The novelty would be along the lines of the unreliable narrator not knowing what the hell he's doing.

But not in an obvious way, like putting the red clamp on the black tab and the black clamp on the red tab. More like "okay, this washer hasn't been draining properly. First, before we begin, we're going to turn off the power and empty the tub here with this plastic pitcher" ... (one hour later...)

I've also always noticed some weird passive-aggressive vibes from Dads talking to their off-screen child holding the cellphone. "Are you pointing it over here? Can you see the nut and bolt? Is it in focus? QUIT SHAKING IT," but I don't know how to make that funny.

I do know the best advice comes from upper Midwesterners, the most patronizing from the Southerners, and the funniest are those old New York guys who use camera "tricks" like recording the breaker box, stopping the camera, stepping into the frame, and then start recording again, so that they pop magically into the picture.

ito this oven door

the rubber seal is probably weak

there ought to be *some* air flow out the door, but not as much as is occurring

as noted the hinges may have been weakened during previous operations

inner seal also appears to be slipping

can i get thoughts on following:

washers placed strategically within hinge to tighten closing angle

two new seals, outer and inner (no idea how these are affixed)

new hinges

mix or all of the above

happy to report that removal of door (theres a knack to this) and simple taking apart, resettling hinges and seals and reconstruction and rehanging (theres a knack to this) has the door as tight and right as a fella could wish
