Is there a way to fix what seems to be a sprung hinge?


If you are saying the door no longer returns to its upright position on it's own than the spring broke, the hinge is fine so long as it travels the same path.
Just google: "oven door spring XXXX" where the x's are your model number.

How do i remove the glass on the door to clean it


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.

Kenmore oven door fails to lock


1. Remove the pan drawer
2. With someone holding glass up, remove the four screws at the bottom of the door that hold the glass front to the door frame. Gently lower the panel about two inches until the side guides are below the door trim cap. Place out of the way so it doesn't fall over etc.
3. Keeping the door closed, use a spring puller to remove each spring from the hinge. (I made one out of a hanger and a screwdriver. Double thickness at the hook, wrapped and secured around the screwdriver to make a handle) If you do things this way be VERY careful. Be sure it is really strong and is not going to slip. The springs are really under tension and will shrink down about an inch from where they are hooked. (Be sure to support the door so it does not fall open when the springs are removed. It will just make things worse.)
4. After the springs are off gently open the door all of the way.
5. Pull down the hinge locks from the oven body and lift the base of the door up. This will lift the door hinges off of the mounts in the oven frame and allow you to pull the door away from the body.
6. Place the door on your box or workbench etc
7. Remove the two screws on each side of the door that hold the hinges in place. Remove the hinges.

Reinstallation is in reverse.

Hinge repair.
By placing the lower part of the hinge (by the axle) against a ruler I was able to see that the upper section was bent out on each hinge. To correct it I placed the hinge over a pair of 4x4 blocks so that it curved up in the center, and hit it a few times with a hammer. The metal was very responsive and quickly bent back into shape. Be careful here as you don't want to bend them too far. I actually went a little past true, wanting to get a little more push at the top of the door. I placed the hinges directly on the oven to see the difference and they looked good (Be sure to put a piece of cardboard or rag between them and the top to keep them from scratching the surface.

Put the hinges back in the door, screw it together and hang it back on the stove, replace the springs and the glass, and check your fit. Good luck.

Oven door seems sprung as if a spring may be shot and door dose not close all the way?


You need to replace both oven door hinges, as the springs are weak, and there is no adjustment available.

Kenmore 790.49073400 oven door won't close completely


Hello- You are on the right track. The hinge assemblies are 'sprung' or bent out of shape. Replacing them is pretty easy, so you can do it yourself. Four screws on each side. Be careful, these springs can snap closed and bite ya. Use the little pins that come with the new set to lock hinge so this doesn't happen. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Hi there
Thats a common problem with sprung door hinges, get some WD-40 lubricant spray and spray the spring until the squeaking stops.
