Question about DCS RDS-486GD Stainless Steel Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

12 inch door problem on model RDS-486GD dual fuel

The small door will not seal because the 2 screws at the bottom holding the door hinges are stripped and keep getting pulled out. Therefore the top of the door stays open a bit, making it no good for cooking.

You can take one of the screws to the hardwere store and get a self taping screw, or a screw one sides bigger. or you can use a ribbit, that will take care of it.

Model #jb700tok3 how to lift the stove top. heat warning lite will not go off


Hello. REMOVE POWER FROM THE RANGE NOW! Using a headlamp or flashlight, open the range door and look underneath the cooktop at the front. (The door covers the screws when its closed) There should be 3-4 screws depending on the model, usually black, that have to be removed. The cooktop will now lift up from the front. It is hinged(open hinges so be careful because the glass cooktop can be easily dislodged off the hinged area) underneath the control panel on the left and right sides. The elements will be mounted to the bottom of the glass. You will need to identify the defective element temperature sensor using a voltage/ohm meter. Element designation 56, LR and RR, part number WB30T10129, 6-inch size. Element designation 57, LF, 9-inch dual, part number WB30T10133. Element designation 58, RF, 12 inch, part number WB30T10130. If you are going to attempt the repair, take pictures of the wiring AND clips for each element before you start. Mark the new element with an arrow or dot, etc. with the mounting clip location numbers from the old element( see the numbers for each of the positioning holes around the rim. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE HEATING FOILS AT ALL--THEY ARE VERY DELICATE! Have a friend/helper hold the cooktop up while you work--this will make the job much easier. I hope I helped you!

My viking oven door has literally fallen off the left hand side hinge - is this a diy FIX?


The door slides onto the two hinges and is held in place with two gravity operated latches. I'm not sure of the condition of your range but it sounds like the door was forced or lifted rapidly allowing the one side to release. The only solution I know of is to remove the other side and reinstall. The hinges have multiple locking positions so the next time you are cleaning your oven, open the door about 8 inches, find the small latches in the door hinge groove, and hold them upwards as you lift the door towards yourself.
The hinges should remain slightly opened. For installation, lower the door onto the hinge posts and pull it outwards slightly.

All 6 ranges and the large oven work well.the small oven won't li


My gas oven stopped working properly - called in the repair man and he replaced two of the three ceramic ignitors. (I have a two oven model). Apparently they only last / work well for 3-5 years. Kinda sounded crazy to me - but verified on the internet they are required to be replaced. Not sure I'd call the repair man next time - get the part yourself, one screw & two wires to replace. I'm no expert - but that solved my problem.

Hook up oven door on maytag gas range


You likely need to lock the hinge in open position to do it. Either there is a small lever on the hinge itself you need to flip when the hinge is in the open position or there is a hole in the hinge, where you need to insert a steel pin (you can use screws, but they bend somewhat ;)) to hold the hinge open

How to replace a oven handle on a FRIG. electric oven , FES367


it's easy
open the door to first catch. About 10 to 12 inches it will stop and stay there. next pull the oven door off it's hinges. just give it a **** and it will slide right off it's hinges. after the oven door is off remove the screws from the outside panel. save them in a safe place cause you will need them to hold the door together. now that it's cover is removed you will see the 2 screws that hold the handle on. Thats it reverse it to put it back together. it's easy you can do it your self... sawdust46

OPEN THE DOOR COMPLETELY. IF IT GOES BEYOND HORIZONTAL, THE HINGES ARE BENT FROM EXCESS DOWNWARD FORCE. THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.
CHECK THE DOOR HINGE SPRINGS TO MAKE SURE ONE OF THEM ISN'T BROKEN. IF YOU FIND ONE BROKEN, REPLACE IT.

Oven door hinge adjustment...?


Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.

Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?
