What I need to know to change the hinges on a Turbochef Tornado

One of the left hinge arms on the door has broken. What parts should I order and what is the best way to disassemble the oven? Is there any precautions or safety notes I should know? Are there any special tools other than the special hollow torqs and philips screw drivers required?

Hello. Yes I was going to say, it should be hardest to take the covers off, than anything to replace the hinges. Easier to replace the right one if you take a few items out of the way, and move/disconnect some wiring. Just unplug is the biggest thing, should be ok after that. Guess you figured it out by yourself though. Congratulations :)

What replacement parts should I order to keep my Kenmore oven door from just dropping down when it is opened?


If the hinge is not broken "Check the Springs".
They sometimes come off at one end or can be broken.
There are 2 one on each hinge. They are strong so be VERY careful.
As I remember they have a color code according to how strong that are according to the weight of the oven door.
The surest way is to get the MODEL NUMBER from the tag on your oven. The parts store will be able to look up the proper replacement.
I may be able to tell you more with a model number for Identification, the oven is likely a Whirlpool Product made for Kenmore. Let me know if you are in New York City area.
Hope this helps.

Hi, We have a Westinghouse electric wall oven with a door which appears to have a broken spring inside. We have previously been able to set it back in gap for hinge but now it has given up holding...


You should be able to buy new springs or the hinge complete from most appliance parts outlets. On some Westinghouse, the door will slide straight off the hinges but on others, you have to strip the door to get at them. Try opening the door and see if the door slides up and away from the oven. If it does, its pretty easy to change the hinge, if not, there will be a little clip on each hinge which locks the arm in place. Slide the clip on both hinges to the front and then you can lift the door up and out of the oven. remove the screws holding the door together and then you will see the 2 screws which hold the hinges in. Order a left (or right) hand side whatever one you need, but I would suggest that they are replaced as a pair, otherwise the door may not close evenly.

Oven door sqeaks and is hard to open all the way . Is there a way to adjust the hinges on the door? Everytime you open it, it makes a sound like metal rubbing on metal



Adjusting the oven door is best left for a factory trained tech. There is alot involved with getting the hinges and monitor switches working together in harmony. alot of times the bottom grate on the front of the oven rubs on the door and usually gives you the metal on metal sound. the bottom grate just pulls off. Then see if its still rubbing. Be sure that the oven door has all of the screws and they are tight before calling for service. There are 3 screws on the left side and on the right side without them you will have problems.

WARNING: Procedure should be done while
oven is hot. As a result, exercise extreme
caution when adjusting the door.

good luck Sean

Hello. Interesting coincidence, but that error code is for the magnetron/microwave part of the toaster. You will need to have it serviced by someone familiar with the unit, it could be easy and reasonable, if just a fuse blew, but not likely. If the fuse blew, it is 20amps, so something took it out. Call turbo chef, they will get you to the closest servicer, may be able to help you on the phone.
