You have to get the tension off of the hinge and it will drop right in. The spring loaded arm on the door needs to be drawn back until you can (depending on the style) either lock the u-arm into the notch on the other side of the hinge, or put a small bolt through the aligning holes in the side of the hinge. Once you get the arm straightened out a bit and relieve the spring pressure, you should be able to sit it right in there. Be careful though, that spring is strong

Re assembling the door....

As a general rule of thumb, oven door glass assemblies are not intended to be removed for "cleaning" or some such procedure. Go to and enter RBS275PDB8. You will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic Whirlpool oven disassembly video which may help.

Took maytag oven door off to clean cannot get it back on hinges will.not stay open and keep.snapping back fingers r sore took a pipe to pull them back but they wont stay How do I keep them from snapping...

It is a two person job unless you want to pull the whole stove out and take the cover off and then remove the springs. Put the door back on and put the springs back and the put the cover back on.

How do you put door back onto Electrolux wall oven......Been trying for hours, no success!

Hello paulascor549 - I completely understand that you took the oven door apart to clean it, therefore you must have took the following steps to do so. According from my research you would have to reassemble in reverse order. If you have already tried to do so and it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Door Removal and Cleaning of Interior Glass

Tools needed: Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.

A. Open Door remove 2 screws and washers on door lining at door hinge area.

B. Refer to owners guide? With door in broil stop position lift door assembly off hinges.

C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table

D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.

E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side

F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.

G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing up.

H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost clear glass to wool shield.

I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.

J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner, Windex, bon ami, fantastic, etc

K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned without further disassembly the lining assembly.

L. Reassemble in reverse order.

Took the oven door off and now cant get it back on

Typically one cannot fight the hinges while putting the door on.

USUALLY you can move a hinge down/open and there is a hole to put a nail through to hold each hinge down while you get the door in place.

Can't put door glass back in Whirlpool RF396LXE2 range

The answer is not as hard as it seems. I just tried for 10 minutes unsuccessfully to put the glass back in the two side tracks. Well the glass actually goes in front of them, the top holds the glass in place.

Whirlpool RBS305PDQ light does not turn off

It's possible, but is door installed correctly? Push in light switch and see if error goes away. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
