Oven – Do oven door liners commonly need replacing


The first time I used the "self clean" setting on this oven, the strip of padding around the oven door … puffed out? Heat leaks out ever since, even to the point where the oven light will sometimes pop on with the door closed. I bought an oven thermometer, and if I wedge the door closed with a drawer, it seems to hold the correct temperature.

Is it simple & common to replace that liner? Or am I overreacting and there's nothing really wrong with the drawer method? I'll admit, it IS handy to be able to blame the gimpy oven door any time a baking project doesn't turn out quite right. 😉

I have never known anyone to replace them. Not me, not my mother (who used hers every other day almost). So no, that does not seem to be a normal thing. Contact the store!
