Guys I'm darran I'm a domestic engineer

Door hinges need replaced you can get them and do it your self it is not a hard job just unscrew the grub screws holding the hinges replace and re sit it in the chassis uk white goods and many others supply next day delivery

But before you go for hinges as these no model etc Is there a door latch make sure it's not bouncing and returning but door hinges guys

Take care regards

Thanks for this, there is no model no. on the oven, I have an idea but can I send you a pic of it
Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 1 year ago.

Definitely the spring mechanism

Guys that looks like a generic zanussi style oven if you take it out the alcove there should be a sticker on the back

You could chance it but to make sure you get the correct part you do need serial , model or Pnc number

But no doubt a 20 min job and the ovens good as new

Which part is the alcove?
Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 1 year ago.

The housing that the oven sits in, the cabinet you shoukd be able to just remove the oven it may have a couple of small screws and sit the oven on the floor , remember to remover from power then you can read the rating plate at the rear

Hi Darran, I have taken the spring out and it’s a Nuova star spring. I have attached a pic
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will this help me order the part?
Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 1 year ago.

Hi guys if you send it to they might be able but I think best bet is an engineer to remove the appliance and look at the rating plate you will or should at least get the make and model

Also etc might actually do the generic part for that spring
