    The bolt that appears to be adjustable that is attached to the door handle for locking the door into place on the stove. Seems to be a tad loose. How does one go about tightening this?

    Thank you.

    I don't see your stove in your signature but maybe it's similar to my 2460?

    In that case, there's a hex nut that locks the striker screw into place. Hold the latch assembly with a slip-joint pliers, loosen the hex nut, adjust the striker screw in or out, tighten the hex nut to lock the screw in position. Piece o' cake. ==c
