The oven door hinge on the right side just started squeaking a little while ago, what can I use to lubricate it? The oven is in use about 4 years now and it is level.
Magic Chef,, just three years old, oven door screeches upon opening. When hot, it's worse, but also squeaks slightly when cool. Tried WD-40, my favorite, even with the thin tube attachment to reach far within the hinge. Worked 'til I used the oven once, then back to fingernails on blackboard. Thanks in advance?

Well, I assume you have the door hinge clips in the right position,
and the door is seated properly with that 2mm slot that sits on the hinge receivers. If hinges are replaced, then it must be hinge receivers.If the door is crooked, moving the hinge receiver will align the door. Besides hinge receivers should be replaced first, before the hinges, that in my experience rarely break
I dont like the bent twisted story. I bet the little plastic U-roller in the hinge receiver is worn down or cracked. Fix is to replace the hinge receiver (a secondhand one is in plentiful supply) - or find a look alike roller and fit it. Cord pully's at the local hardware store may fit, window slider tracks, or even coins with a small 1 inch by 4mm bolt as an axle will do the trick.
Still not sure. Remove the dorr using instructions, and set aside.
Remove hinge receivers from each side. Are the little wheels in there good, or wobly, worn of missing?
An oven door repair may be needed if the door
hinge breaks or is bent out of shape. Oven doors have two door hinges, a
left and right. On some ovens the same hinge is used, on other ovens
the right hinge and left hinge have different part numbers. The door
hinge sometimes is sold with all necessary parts and springs, other
times the parts need to be ordered separately. An oven door repair for a
door hinge is a relatively easy repair for a do-it-yourselfer.
If the outer door glass is broken, it can be
replaced. This oven door repair requires that the oven door be removed
from the oven and layed down on a sturdy flat surface. The outer door
glass is made of tempered glass. Use eye and hand protection when
performing this oven door repair.
I can't speak for this model but all stove doors are relatively the same: 1) Open the door all the way 2) On the right and left door hinge there is a little latch that will most likely pull up towards you to lock the hinge open 3) Make sure this latch is all the way in the lock position 4) Lift the door as if you were closing it, except this time the hinge will not move and the door will start to lift off 5) Keep "closing" the door and gently pull away from the range to remove the door. Sometimes it gets a little stuck but just be patient with it and jiggle it gently.
Pull up on the door to remove it from the hinges. Remove the pan drawer on the bottom. Remove the spring from the hinge to be replaced. Remove the hinge mounting screws. Remove the hinge. Reverse this process to install the new hinge.
I had a similar problem and tried simlar fixes. Spraying the chain, the rollers, the track with silicon based lubricant did not good for my problem. My wife then listened carefully from where the squeak was coming. It was coming from the hinged in the actual door, the hinge like parts that allow the door to roll up. After we sprayed all of them, the sound just went back to the normal electrical / mechanical sound of the door opening and closing. I am sure our neighbors are happy too after 6 months of (very) early openings. Hope this helps.
You will need a window pack, part number WB56T10152 which is not hard to replace. You should be able to order it right from GE, or an appliance repair firm can get it for you, often without extra shipping if they can combine it with other parts they need to order. Should set you back just over $100. You can remove your oven door to make it easier to work on. Use a little screwdriver to pull down the little square hole you will see on the top of the hinge opening on the frame of the oven on each side. That little metal part will lock the hinge open. Next, lift on the door and pull it toward you. The hinge actually stays with the door and lifts right out of the rectangular opening in the oven frame. Reverse procedure to reinstall repaired door.
