All I needed was a phillips screw driver, a small hex socket drive and an 8mm wrench.
1. Turn off the mains at the switch board. There might be a switch near the oven or stove too, turn that off as well. Check that the power is off!
2. Remove the screws holding the oven to the cupboards. Mine was held in by 4 timber screws on the edge.
3. Slide the oven out of the wall. I used a small table to support it.
4. Remove the hex drive screws that hold the top lid on.
5. Using a trusted multimeter CHECK THAT POWER IS OFF! There are now exposed power terminals.
6. Undo the supply power terminals and remove the cable. I taped mine up.
7. Remove the back cover - more hex screws.
8. Pull the spade terminals off the heater element.
8. Inside the oven remove the shelves and side racks. They pop off the wall. 9. Pull the rear fan shield towards you. It should pop out at the top and then lift off 2 small tabs.
10. Remove the phillips screw at the bottom of the heater element.
11. Remove the 2 spring clips.
12. The element can now slide down and towards you.
13. Replace the element and put it all back together in reverse order.
You may have accidentally moved the clean door lock lever that hooks the door to the lock position.. You could try hooking a string on the lever and pulling it over to allow the door to close, then try unlocking the door on control board. Just a idea, does not sound broken, good luck....
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.

One of both of the springs are probably off or broken. Slide it out and inspect the hinges and springs which are at the bottom of the door. The springs hook to the hinge and the base of the oven farther back. You may have to remove the side cover.
In first, excuse my poor english if i make some mistake.
I hare repair the same problem. part broken in left side and the door fall.
You have to pull out the oven from the wall, use some objet to support the oven,small table or plastic box if you dont want to put down completely.
You have to unsecure the electric wire connection in back if you whant to pull out enough for remove the left cover. You have to remove some parts in front for acces to screws on the side cabinet.
In my case the hinge was broken, i have soldered and fix again.
If hard to replace the spring in the mecanism, you better to do this on the bench before put all in the side of the oven.
I think the maytag oven have the same problem.
Other problem also is the timer alarm sound in the night went you sleeping, prob whit switch sensitif pc board. Now i turn off the breaker in the back of oven all night, and i sleep good.
what you have to do is get a couple of nails pull the hinge on the door down far enough to insert the nails in the holes and let it rest against the door this will hold the door at the proper angle to engage the hooks inside the hinge slots on the body of the range grasp the door on each side and insert the hinges in each side to engage the hooks then open the door all the way and remove the nails
is there tension on the door at the point where it doesnt seal,is the spring broken/missing,when the door opens and closes is there enough travel from point a to point b inside the cabinet on both sides of the hinge area, is the sping loaded mechanism damaged .
