The process is likely model specific. Your owner's manual might describe how to do it.

I have a Frigidaire/Electrolux (PLEB30S8CCB) and I find removal and replacement some what tricky. The owner's manual says to reverse the removal process, but I believe that that is incomplete.

To take it off, you open the door all of the way, flip up a metal connecting loop on each of the door sides to "bind" an upper J-shaped and lower L-shaped bar on each hinge, and pull the door out, while lifting up the outer handle side. (The pull motion frees the lower L-bar and the upward motion allows the J-bar to slip under a metal roller.)

To put it back on, each side of the oven has a two-part slot. The upper part is for the J-bar and the lower for the L-bar. Put the J-bars part way into their upper slots with the handle side of the door raised slightly to help slip under the metal rollers. Then ensure that the L-bars are fitting into their lower slots. Push the door straight in until a notch on the bottom of the L-bars sets on the bottom of their slots. The trick then is to push the door down to its fully open position, which allows you to flip the metal loops to separate the bars and allow the door to close. Note that pushing the door down makes some noise, but the door should go no more that level with the floor or something may be out of position.

SOURCE: Amana ARG7300 Oven Door won't go back on

The hinges are not sticking out enough ( tabs have wore down ) to engage the hinges on the door . Push the hinges out with a screwdriver and measure the distance to a screw further up the door and cut two pieces of wood (one for each side ) .push the hinges back out and jam the wood in . It goes in easy and the wood falls out when you put the door to open

SOURCE: oven door won't go back on

well there is one where u have to put a pin through the hinge to lock it in a certain place to remove and reinstall it..kinda tricky. locks it in the semi-open position. others have pieces that swivel down to lock the hinge in that position for removal and reinstall. it's not easy if you've never done it. :)

Putting door back on but hinge wont release to put back on


Hi Susan, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble putting the door back on your Frigidaire wall oven. Without knowing exactly how you removed the door I cannot say with certainty how to reattach the door. However, when removing the door did you pull up the lock located on both hinge supports and engage it in the hinge lever hooks? You might have had to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully over the hinge lever hooks. Then grab the door by the sides and pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports. If so, then to reattached the door grab the door by the sides; place the hinge supports in the hinge slots. Open the door to the fully opened position. Disengage the lock from the hinge lever hooks on both sides. Make sure the hinge supports are fully engaged before unlocking the hinge levers. Then close the oven door. There are instructions with images to remove and replace the oven door in the owner's manual. I hope this information proves helpful for you.

Should i remove the oven door to wipe it clean after using the self cleaning cycle.


I never remove the oven door when i clean my oven because it is kind of heavy and awkward to put back in place. Besides...the self clean cycle cleans the oven so good that all you will have to do is wipe the bottom of the oven out and it will look like new.

Oven door handle is loose on Model RF366BXD self cleaning range, how do we tighten the door handle?


Extend your door hinges and remove entirely over to a table or other flat surface where you can do a step-by-step dis-assembly. Unfortunately, to get at the interior of the handle unit, it's the final stage of the taking apart. Begin by removing the bolts at the bottom of the door, then the main panel and side flanges can be removed. (You can give your glass a good cleaning at this point also.) There are 2 bolts to remove to free up the handle unit, and now you can easily tighten (or replace as needed) the 2 pairs of handle bolts. Reverse your order to re-assemble, and put your door back on the oven. It's not as bad an exercise as it would appear. Just take your time and watch what you're doing. I used the hinges as a shim, and had it laid out on a pool table for easy, elevated examination.

Cleaning glass in oven door


Extend your door hinges and remove entirely over to a table or other flat surface where you can do a step-by-step dis-assembly. Begin by removing the bolts at the bottom of the door, then the main panel and side flanges can be removed. The glass slides out from the tabs and you can give it a good cleaning at this point. Reverse your order to re-assemble, and put your door back on the oven. It's not as bad an exercise as it would appear. Just take your time and watch what you're doing. I used the hinges as a shim, and had it laid out on a pool table for easy, elevated examination.

The lock will not release after cleaning


This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

How do I take off the glass on my oven door to clean it?


I have a Kenmore oven and all I had to do was remove the screw at each end of the handle (accessed with the door open) and the very front section just opened up - SIMPLE!! Wiped it down put the screws back in. Did it all by myself - just have your cleaning cloth in reach before you start. Can't believe I looked at those drips for years and it was that simple!!!
