How to take off the oven door? Do the silver u-shaped clips that are screwed on just above the hinges need to be taken off first. I have a whirlpool gold range.

    Thank you



    The u shaped clips that are screwed onto the open itself had to be removed before we could lift the door upwards until it disengaged. I took them off and behold the oven door lifted off and I cleaned in between the windows.



    I'll you an A+++ for response and a "thanks for trying"; perhaps my explanation of my request wasn't clear.



    Again

    Thank you

The silver u clips are designed to flip all of the way foreward and hold the door spring tension while removing the door. Once the clips are in place on their notches, you should be able to lift the door upwards until it disengages and then out.

Door Hinge

An oven door repair may be needed if the door hinge breaks or is bent out of shape. Oven doors have two door hinges, a left and right. On some ovens the same hinge is used, on other ovens the right hinge and left hinge have different part numbers. The door hinge sometimes is sold with all necessary parts and springs, other times the parts need to be ordered separately. An oven door repair for a door hinge is a relatively easy repair for a do-it-yourselfer.

How to re install oven door


There are two pieces of metal that are inserted into the hinge slots on the body of the oven, the spring (upper) and the hinge. Before you can re-install the door, you have to clip these two together by laying the door handle side down and then using all of your body weight to push down on the spring arm, using gloves and a wadded up rag to soften the impact to your hands, and then clip the two pieces of metal together using the little hinged clip on the hinge piece and the slot on the spring piece. When you've clipped these together on both sides, lift the door and insert the metal pieces into the two respective metal slots on either side of the oven body. when they're in as far as you can push them, use a flat edged screwdriver to release the clip and close the door. Good luck, it may take a couple of tries and be careful of the spring, because it can snap back and hurt you if the clip comes off prematurely.

Amana ACS3350AS gas range oven door is bent and will not close properly. need to replace oven door and hinges. how much will this cost?


With a hammer, carefully flatten the areas of the door on both sides where it is sprung outward. I then drove self tapping screws into the side panels of the door just above where the bulge formed.
This formed a bond between the outside panel of the door and the inside panel.

The oven door won't close properly, it just hangs slackly about 2 cm from the seal. it's a smeg wall oven.


the clips on these oven are canyilver type they can move out of position if opened abruptly .to refit correctly lift door upwards while pushing the bottom of the door inwards.you should feeel a strong resistance from the door springs.there should be a notch n the bottom of the hinge this should slot over the oven frame.if this does not solve the problem then the springs have probably gone on the hinges and will need to replace both hinge assemblies

Clean Oven Door Glass


To remove oven door:
1. The oven door is held to the oven door hinges by two
screws. (One in each hinge.)
2. To remove the oven door remove the two screws.
Two screws
3. Close the door to the broil stop position and lift up.
then remove the door handle and take out all the screws around the edges of the door and pull the out side cover from the inner but a word of caution there are about three or 4 pieces of glass they are tempered and about 100 bucks a piece and most times they wont get real clean and will get messy again

Oven door hinge adjustment...?


Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.

Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?
