Hillerange Seaward Princess Hinge Repair

I have a two burner Hillerange / Seaward Princess range (#2172). One of the hinges has been loose since we got her. If you want to use the oven you have to tug the door upward slightly when you close it to get a good seal.

It "feels" like a loose mounting bolt, but my concern is the pivot hole in the spring arm assembly may be rounded out from use.

The good news is I've gotten far enough into my "to-do" list that I can deal with "annoying little things". The bad news is I'm not sure I can still get parts for this range and it looks like I'm going to have to remove it completely and do a lot of disassembly to get to the hinge (which is why I've been living with it).

Before I dive in I was wondering if anyone here has done this repair and if there's any info you can share?

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Re: Hillerange Seaward Princess Hinge Repair

I wonder if the oven door on this range is similar to doors on house ranges. If that is the case then maybe a visit to an online appliance repair forum might get you some answers.
Also have you looked around for a manual? I found one here, http://www.marlow-hunter.com/export/...ss%20Stove.pdf

From the exploded (not a good thing to say when discussing propane stoves on a boat )
parts view it looks like the hinges can be replaced with out removing the stove from the counter. If its like a home range the door might just lift off.

Hmm, never tried lifting off the door. I have the original manual for the oven and it has an exploded view that's not very helpful. When I originally looked at this (which was admittedly quite a while ago) it looked like the unit had to be taken out and the side panel and possibly a bottom panel removed on a 20 yr old range to get access. In other words a PITA job; and whatever parts I need will have to be special ordered if I can get them at all.

I was kind of hoping this was a common problem and someone would chime in with with a shortcut or a quick fix. Guess I'm not going to get that lucky

I'll tackle this one once it warms up a bit, still too damn cold here.

Sorry no photo. But it's pretty much the standard 2 burner Seaward Princess range you find on most boats...

+1 Sure Marine. They service these ranges. Be careful how deep you go though. I could have bought a new unit with the money I spent replacing all the valves, t-couples etc.

SVTatia, thanks for posting this !

The exploded diagram on Sure Marine's web site is the same as the one in my manual. I'm guessing from the way the door moves it's either the hinge assembly or the spring arm pivot.

I'd stopped by a local parts dealer listed on Seaward's web site and he said the part aren't available anymore which seemed odd given how many of these ovens are out there.

I think you are referring to parts nos. 22, 23 and 24 on the diagram, which are available thru Sure Marine... Just scroll down from the diagram page.
