Question about Whirlpool 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White

1 Answer

Handle on oven door has come off and I need to know how to get at the screw to tighten it back on.The handle is attached to the same piece that has the vent holes in it. I don't see any screws at all to allow me to take the door apart. I tried some light prying at seams where it appears two pieces overlap but I don't want to break anything without knowing I'm prying in the right place or whatever.The stove is abouy 10 years old.

HOw do I refit the handle on a hotpoint SY36w oven door please?


Most oven doors handles are held in by screws from the inside of the door. Inside the front side of the door, so you need to remove the inside of the door to get at them. You should be able to remove the door from the oven or at least lock it in the down position. Carefully remove the screws and pay attention to which screws goes where. Then remove the back, tighten the screws holding the handle in and replace the back Document or take pictures/video of what you do to make sure everything goes back where it should. Ba careful with the glass.

The handle on the bottom oven fell off. how do i reattach it?


I suppose the handle you are talking about, is the long, wide one, used to pull that oven door open, right? I personally do not have any experience with this particular oven-- However:

These handles are usually held on by a long screw at each end.
So-- when you look at the handle-- do you see where the screws should attach at each end?
And do you see matching holes thru the door-- where the handle was once attached?

Now: Where are the screws?
We know they were there at one time, right?
So-- can you open the door, and can you locate where the screws are now?
Once you locate the screws, can you hold the handle, and re- screw the screws ito the threads in the handle? You have the necessary tools? -- Screw driver and flash light?

When you examine things closely-- get back with us, and we can help you to your next step.

Oven Handle drops off of door


Whatever keeps the handle on is not working. Most oven handles are held on by a screw on each end. It can be tightened from the inside of the oven door. If you don't see the screws, you may have to take the door apart. Buy some longer screws if needed.

Need to clean liquid drip from inside of door whirlpool built-in


Hi, The screws in the bottom edge of the door will need to be removed. The dor handles screws usually help hold the upper part of the door together. There might be screws on each side. Makes sure the door is laying on a flat surface and be gentle with the glass pieces. They are very fragile.
I am sending you a picture of the door pieces and how they line up inside the frame.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

How to get the glass front back on oven door of Whirlpool range


Ok. Heres what I was dealing with....Dissasembled. NOW (after you scrubbed everything to your liking try this.
1: With the door laying "oven" surface down on a flat surface. Gently place glass sheet/pane down squaring it up evenly as you can.
2: (Might sound strange) Grab the door handle and reposition it where it needs to go and slide the glass in the "ledges". Even everything up square as possible. Insert screws(2), but do NOT tighten all the way.
3: Now you have 2 (L & R) uprights. Insert "handle" end of uprights first, then align carefully the "tips" into the holes, and then snug the oven handle screws.
4: Carefully align the metal "base" channel/seat with the glass so the window/glass seats on the bases slots/shelves. Align all holes and insert screws (4 - 2 screws on both sides of base), finally align the center screw and tighten snug.
5: Replace door on Range Unit ande get cookin again!!

Hope this helps. I think its a poor design to let anything inside the door. Nice Range/Oven unit. Just a bad door design in my opinion.

Oh Yeah. The door hinges only took me 4 months to figure it has built in hinge locks. THEY are VERY convenient and once you know how they work. They are an AWSSOME invention for what they do!!

Loose oven door handle


I had the same problem. We took the door off completely & turned it upside down. There are screws on the bottom of the door, take them out, take off bottom trim piece that holds the outside glass panel in place, remove glass panel and you can access the door handle screws and clean the inside of the glass while you are at it.
