Hinge has a small hole in it. Lay door flat on rug. Take a pair of channel locks and tension hinge past hole. Put a screw in hole to hold it open. Then put door on product. Remove screws. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

How do I get my kelvinator stove's P 12 front door back


Without more information I can't be sure of your problem but I will make a guess that you removed the door without engaging the hinge locks. I am attaching a video that may help. All oven door hinges are not the same. Some require you to insert a screwdriver or pin in a hole to stop the hinge from retracting. My own oven door has retainers that snap onto the slot just above the hinge. When you remove the door these pieces are used to hold the hinge in the open position.
If the hinges are in the closed position you will have to figure out how to open them and hold them in the open position. Be Careful. The springs are very strong and can hurt you. I am including a link to a youtube video that may be the same as your oven door.

Putting on the oven door of a whirlpool gas range


You may need to pull the hinges away from the oven front to their first rest. That should allow for standing the door back on.

Model number mgr5775qdb. someone removed the oven


If there is a hole in the metal hinge near the base; put a nail in the hole to keep the hinge from closing until you get the door in place and then remove the nail.

DCS 30 inch oven door fell off


First thing is be careful them sprins are strong and will hurt your fingers bad if not careful. That said place both hinges in 1/3 open position they should stop there. if not put both all the way open then slide door back on and close. supposed to only lift off in 1/3 open position but whatever works.

2002 Thermador Gas Oven door - can't get back on after removal!


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.

Oven door came off


Got it fixed! I found the owners manual posted on another site with replacement instructions. Expand the hinges from the door and insert a nail or screw into the hole there to hold hinges open. With hanging slots parralel to pins in oven frame slide back into place.Once in place open door completely and remove screw or nail. Couldn't be easier.
