Universal oven door seal for select cookers with rounded corners
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 118 customers
Bought this for a basic siemens oven. Made sure it was the correct product as per the model number. The connectors for the rubber seal were not adequate and compared to the original fitting were inferior quality. I had to remove and utilise the old metal fittings. So basically paid for the rubber seal. Would not purchase again.
Cheap to buy but found it very fiddly as having bigger hands all fingers and thumbs and ended up binning it and paying the higher price to get the branded product which was so much easier to fit.
The espares website and delivery were excellent, as was the video with instructions to fit. However, the universal seal is not as wide as the original and i could not use it as the part of the clip that fits into the the four oven holes is not long or thick enough to hold it in place under pressure. The old oven clip is twice the size and much stronger.
Looked at espares usual excellent helpful guide and took a chance and went for this universal seal which you fit together yourself by measuring and cutting. It certainly works out cheaper.
On opening the pack, all looked good regarding quality of seal and metal corner pieces.
However, then realised that the barbed hooks on the corner pieces would not line up with the holes on my AEG cooker. The barbs which fit into the holes were facing the opposite way to the barb hooks on the original AEG seal. I tried to carefully bend the barbs to the same shape of the originals but could still not get them to line up with the holes in the cooker.
Fortunately, I managed to retrieve the old oven seal from the bin and removed the corner pieces from that. I then snipped off the barb hooks from the new corner pieces and managed to push both old and new corner pieces into the new rubber strips!
Was it worth saving a tenner or so? Unless you can't get an original replacement then no!
