We buy the domino thing at any home improvement store in the electrical
wire area. They’re for connecting electrical wires. I really have no idea
why it won’t shut all the way. When our cable broke the door wouldn’t stay
shut, the door would fall open. if yours closes but for one inch then I
think it might be something else. Sorry I don’t have any ideas.

This is great, someone tripped over the oven door last night (new one) and
it closes but for one inch, do you think it’s stretched or broken the
spring? Where can one get the domino from?
