Re: Hotpoint BS 21 fan oven Broken door hinge
Pull the door down as far as it will go, and at the lower end of the hinges, there you should see what looks like 2 round discs, with a step cut out, rotate the discs with a scewdriver as far as they will go,then close the door and pull it towards you, the door should then pull off.
Replace both hinges, not just the one ,or it will close unevenly.
Slot the hinges back into the hinge slots, pull the door down, rotate the disc back to their original setting, and that should be it.
Plz rate this solution. Thanks.

sometimes there is a switch that operates when the door is opened or closed causes the fan to stop when the door opens. The switch is normally mounted at a door hinge, or hinge bracket.might have to remove a panal to get to it
Assuming that the door was not removed for the new element to be fitted, then it sounds to ne as thiugh the oven door hinges are weak.
The only solution is to replace both door hinges,
If the door was removed, then it could possibly be not fitted back correctly.
Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.
Depending on model-
Put the door at an opening of about 100mm. You should feel an indent for thecorect position.
You will probably need 2 people, 1 each side,
Slide the door upward at an angle same as hinge, It will slide off the hinge.
If the hinge is broken, and they usually break inside the wall of the oven, it will be very difficult to slide it off the broken hinge.
Hinges are available from EDIS SPARES 1800 125 039
0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it. 1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door. 2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel. 3Removethe
inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder
you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly. 4 the frame will be free now, 5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place. 6 Replace the inner glass. 7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back
I also report testimonials for your model:
"removed the door from the
oven by releasing clips attached to the door hinge -- very nicely
engineered. Removed about 6 philips head screws to allow the door
assembly to be taken apart for access to the glass. Lifted out the
broken glass, cleaned the inside of the door, installed the new glass,
reassembled the door (a two minute project), and reattached the door to
the oven. Cleaning the inside of the door"
"I removed the oven door by
lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time
making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to
get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that
the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced
the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the
parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where
the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the
disassembled door shown on your website."
