Door handle fell off of oven


Rachel, every range oven door I've seen, that was built in the last 20 years comes off the range by opening it about 6 - 8 in. from the top of the door frame, taking a firm grip on both sides about 8 - 10 in. down, bend the knees slightly, get a good grip on the door and pull up sharply. The door should release from the spring hinge on each side. Once you have it out you can lay it flat on the kitchen table, (preferably on a towel or cloth of some sort), with the inside facing up. There should be several screws that hold the interior portion of the door to the outer portion. If you remove these screws you should be able to remove the inner portion of the door, by pulling straight up, easily, and put it on the floor or if there's room, on the counter or table. Now you should be able to locate the holes the screws go into, to hold the handle on the door. If they connect from the interior, you should have found them when the interior was off the first time. Take them and install the handle. If there are none, find some chatterproof washers and put one on the inner side of each screw to keep them from loosening again. Once you have the handle secured to the door you should be able to put it back together. After you have assembled the two halves of the oven door, make sure the two hinge assemblies are pulled away from the frame of the oven at approx. a 35 degree angle. This is necessary to have the proper clearance to allow the door to slide down onto the hinges and grab on inside. The door should slide right down over the two hinges and then you can close it up.

I need to replace the hinge receptacles on a Jenn-air wall oven (WW30430PC). How do I access those parts?


The only way to replace the hinge receptacles is to pull the oven out of the opening. If you need parts you can get them on the link below. Also if you call the link below they will walk you through on how to replace.

It is a double oven, but I want to eliminate the lower oven... so, I am looking for an electrical plan so I can find out how to disconnect the lower oven... and only install the top part.


•Step 1
Open the oven door to the half open position. Locate the hinge on each side of the oven door toward the bottom. The top center of each hinge has a hole. Insert a nail or screw into the empty hole on each hinge to prevent the hinge from closing inside the door rail after disconnecting from the oven.
•Step 2
Grab the sides of the door with your hands and lift straight up to disengage the hinge from the door. Push down slightly on the top of the door to release it from the hinges. Pull the door away from the oven and place it on a flat surface with the door handle toward the floor.
•Step 4
Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, remove the two screws at the top of the inside door panel that secure the inner door panel to the outer door panel. Loosen and remove the three screws on the bottom edge of the oven door with the screwdriver. Lift the inner panel away from the outer oven door.
•Step 4
Loosen the two screws that secure the door handle to the outer door panel. Lift the outer door panel slightly to pull the handle away from the door.
•Step 5
Remove the screw at the top and bottom of the side hinge rails with the screwdriver. The hinge rails mount to the outer door panel and the inner panel sits between the rails. Lift the hinge rails off the outer panel.
•Step 6
Lift the inner door glass straight up out of the outer door panel. Stand the outer door panel up on its bottom edge. Pull the top trim off of the door panel and outer glass. Hold the top of the glass panel and pull the two side trim pieces away from the outer panel. Pull the outer glass away from the outer pan.
once it comes out you can do what u want.

I have preloaded the replacement hinge, but it appears that to remove the old hinge it must be unloaded. If that is true, how do you load the new hinge while it is on the door?


Ovens come in many varieties including freestanding units and stacked models that are inserted into a wall. Kitchen oven units that get a lot of use or are getting old may have problems develop, such as a loose or squeaky door which may require replacing the hinges. You can replace the hinges on the door to your oven by first removing the door from the rest of the oven.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Screwdriver
  1. Step 1 Open the oven door and examine the hinges to see how the they are secured to the door. Some oven doors slide into the hinge assembly or have a locking mechanism that secures the door to a latch on the main unit.
  2. Step 2 Remove the door from the oven by disengaging the locking mechanism and then pull the oven door out. You may need to release a catch on the door or remove a pin from a hole in the hinge.
  3. Step 3 Place the door on a flat surface such as a table or the floor.
  4. Step 4 Remove the screws that hold the sections of the door together to access the hinges.
  5. Step 5 Remove the hinges from the door. The hinges may be attached to the door with screws or they may be held in place when the door sections are tightened or secured.
  6. Step 6 Insert the new hinges into the door and secure them with the screwdriver or place the section of door back on. Tighten all of the screws securing the sections together.
  7. Step 7 Place the oven door back into place by sliding it on the same way that it came off.

Replace inner oven door glass on kitchenaid wall oven


To replace the door glass do the following:

0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it.
1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door.
2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel.
3Removethe inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly.
4 the frame will be free now,
5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place.
6 Replace the inner glass.
7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back

I also report testimonials for your model:

"
removed the door from the oven by releasing clips attached to the door hinge -- very nicely engineered. Removed about 6 philips head screws to allow the door assembly to be taken apart for access to the glass. Lifted out the broken glass, cleaned the inside of the door, installed the new glass, reassembled the door (a two minute project), and reattached the door to the oven. Cleaning the inside of the door"

"
I removed the oven door by lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the disassembled door shown on your website. "

Smeg se336ss 5 some so and so has broken the outer glass door!


We removed the front glass of our oven door after a big spill between the two glass sections (by blunt force!). Since it took us 4 hours to put back together, we wanted to spread the info in case any others have the misfortune to make this mistake! Note, I wouldn't do this unless you have to, just incase you can't get your door back together again.

Assuming the back sheet of oven glass is still in position, but the front sheet is not attached -

1. Follow the manual instructions to remove the door, ensuring that both hinges are locked fully (otherwise you won't be able to get the door back on easily)

2. Once the door is removed, ensure that the plastic spacers that hold the two sheets of glass apart are in original position, resting on the inner door, at the bottom corners of the tempered glass

3. Remove the narrow metal strip at the bottom of the inner door by unscrewing the 3 screws that hold it in place. This is the metal groove that the outer pane of glass needs to rest in

4. Lay the outer sheet of glass in position in this metal strip

5. Lay the outer sheet of glass over the inner door. Slot the outer sheet into position at the top of the inner door first, ensuring it is layed flush at the top.

6. A second person needs to ease the metal strip back into place at the bottom of the inner door, so that the two sheets of glass are now held together at both top and bottom.

7. Screw the metal strip back into position with the 3 screws

8. Follow the manual instructions to replace the door. Ensure that the small grooves at the bottom of both hinges are resting in position correctly, otherwise the door will not close flushly.

DOOR PROBLEM


I am not sure about your oven model.  I had a similar problem in my oven.  The hinges are riveted to the oven and can be fixed.

First remove the oven door - normally the door slides on to two prongs on either side and is screwed down.

 

Once the door is removed check the mechanism that holds the two prongs to the oven body.  Mine were held with stainless steel rivets that had worn out and became wobbly.  Cut the rivets and replace them with new ones.  You can get a rivet driver and the stainless steel rivets for under $20 at Home Depot. 

 

Hope this works for you.
