You need to remove the inner door panel, (a bunch of screws hold it in) then remove the glass. You can either lock the door in the down position, if your model has locks on the hinges, or remove the door from the stove. If you can't lock it down, and do it while its on the stove, be careful because the door springs are quite strong, once you remove the inner panel it will want to spring up on you, since it will be much lighter.
My range is a different brand, but the door comes off real easy. Open it to the first detent, and then pull straight up on it to slide it off the hinges. Be careful though, the hinges are spring loaded and if you bump them they will easily come off the detent and slamm to the closed position. This will not only scare the sh..it out of you, but will also pinch your fingers real good if you're not careful.
spring is broken on the side that is 'slacked' without return tension. may be necessary to get underneath the stove chassis. move away from wall, carefully disconnect the gas fitting after turning off the gas spigot. Pull away far enough from wall to 'tilt' the whole chassis rearward to access the underside. Technicians use a 'jack' to raise stove....
I can only say for the 720. You have to remove the whole oven from the kitchen furniture and then unscrew/remove the top and side panels. You will then see the springs on either side of the door.
Important. Remove the inner glass panel from the door first, before you release the springs.
To remove the springs, ensure the door is closed and then unhook them. You then should be able to remove the door frame.
Pull out the oven. If it has no side panels then GREAT you can replace it very easy from the side. If not then you are going to need to take off that one side. IF neither of those are possible, then you might have to replace it from the backside of the oven after removing the panel. And finally there is a VERY rare last way which the oven is dismantled from the inside. I don't know what model you have so I am betting it is from the side when you pull it out.
O'Keefe and Merritt is always a challenge to the inexperienced because, although two stoves of the same year and model can look identical, there are subtle differences in both, especially in the door spring mechanism, that make it difficult to explain without seeing the stove and/or asking you a series of questions in person. Here it goes anyway:
Some models have access panels that are visible when you pull out the broiler drawer. This makes changing a spring a breeze, as long as you know which spring you need. A sample of a broken one, or and intact one always helps when buying a replacement. Other models operate on a system of hooks, cables and springs. These often require a skilled technician to come out and repar for you. Most of the time, the door has to be physically removed from the frame so that new cables (and sometimes rods) can be installed on the hinge and then the door would have to be re-installed fishing the cables through a small opening on the bottom of the stove. A spring then attaches to the cable and the hook of the spring is then attached to one of three small aligned holes on the bottom stove panel.
One constant i s that there are 2 sets of springs for each of the door panels. You are right, there are springs in the middle. And you are also right that the white panel removes from the door after you remove the truss head sheet metal screws.

It is simple enough not to need a manual.
1- open the door, then pull outwards. The door mounts slide right out.
2- lay flat on a towel on the floor. Remove screws on the inside of the door.
3- remove each piece and layer of the door and glass panels. Set them aside in order so you know how it goes back together
4- replace broken inner glass panel
5- put each piece back together, install screws
6- slide door (mounts) back into their homes on the front of the range
It is surprisingly simple. All you need is a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience.
Tip: make sure to clean each glass panel while you have the door apart. Use a razor blade for those stubborn burnt on stains.
