Re: cant get whirlpool electric oven door hinges back on
Pull the hinges out and there should be a hole in it to where you can slide a nail or a screw through to hold the hinge open so you can put it back on Information is here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203196274.pdf

Most residential oven doors are removable by taking out two screws of each hinge. Located on the door on left n Right sides where the hinge slides into the door. These also are the way to adjust the door by loosening n then snug the screws, close the door. Adjust it, then carefully open without affecting your adjustment. Then tighten the screws. When removing the door MAKE SURE THE DOOR IS FULLY OPENED. THE HINGES ARE SPRING LOADED N WILL SNAP BACK.
In order to reinstall the door you will need to extend the hinges out on both sides...You will notice a small hole at each hinge..Insert a nail in to each hole (one on each hinge)...Set the hinge so that the it is extended outward with nail in place...Once completed set the door back onto the oven with hinges inserted into slots in housing....Open the door as far as it will go...Remove the nails ..The door should now work properly..
Oven doors are made to lift off for routine maintenance but there might be problems if the spring load hinges are not disabled before pulling the door off the body.
There should be a catch which holds the hinge in the open position but if it is the release position (i.e. the state in which it is in for normal use), the I would expect the hinges to snap into the closed position when the door is removed from the body.
To rectify this, hold each spring loaded arm in the position it would be in the "door open" position and move the catch into the position which prevents the arm springing back when they are released.
It should now be possible to fit the door to the cooker.
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.
need strong fingers and a helper... lay the door on the floor push open the hinges and there is a hole on the side of the hinge have your helper slide in a small nail only about 1/4 " in to the hole this will keep the hinge out do the same on the other side then reinstall the door open up and remove your nails
