I finally got my door back on, I had to wedge a butter knife in the hinge to keep it open, then I could put it back on the pins and slide the metal cover/locking thinge over it. Was a pain in the ass.

SOURCE: hook up oven door on maytag gas range

You likely need to lock the hinge in open position to do it. Either there is a small lever on the hinge itself you need to flip when the hinge is in the open position or there is a hole in the hinge, where you need to insert a steel pin (you can use screws, but they bend somewhat ;)) to hold the hinge open

SOURCE: can lift oven door out to fix it Maytag MGB5755QDS

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by your post the range is a Maytag, however if you can provide the complete model number (MGB5755QDS yields zero matches in any search, the number is usually on inside of door frame or around the bottom door opening as shown below), I'll see what I can find for you.



There are many possible scenarios as I hope you can appreciate being this is a global repair site, even within one brand for example so if the info provided is inaccurate I'll need to clarify the model before moving forward.

For most Maytag ranges the door removal is as follows. Open the door to the broil position as shown here...

Lift the door straight up out of the hinges as shown here...

Set the oven door down on a flat surface is recommended to avoid damage to the door. I'll watch for your reply if you have any questions or need further assistance. Good luck.

How do I adjust the door to close properly?

On many ovens, the door switch assembly can be adjusted to ensure that the door is closing tightly. Any adjustment of this type, however, should be followed by a microwave leak test using a calibrated instrument. Making a door tighter does not necessarily reduce leakage, and may actually increase it on some cases.

Bosch HBL 645 oven door won't close all the way

I am afraid that the door hinges are non adjustable, and the only solution is to replace them as a pair.
There should be some kind of latch mechanism at the end of the hinge
where it is fastened to the door to compress the hinge to enable you to remove them.
Hope this helps.

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all

same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.

Re Neff B1451 oven door not sealing against oven body at top

If you take the hinges off, you can fit some washers between the hinges and the door to make it close it further. Probably not as good as new hinges, but cheaper. 2mm of washers will close a 5mm gap

Adjustment to door hinge, as door does not close completely

In most cases door hinges needs to be replace but some time with old stile ovens and ranges help this trik:
1. Put small towels on right and left hinge between the door and range/oven body
2. Close door and gently push like you try to close completely.
3. Try several times.
4. Open door, remove towels and see if it helps
5. If not replace hinges

Main oven door will not close properly. Is there any adjustment for it.

This comment applies to most electric ovens that have drop down doors with hinges at the bottom.
The hinges are not adjustable, and in every case the problem is caused by one or both hinge springs being weak.
The only solution, is to replace both oven door hinges together.
