I fixed my Fagor disgwasher spring last night. The symptom was a bang and the door got heavy. Investigation revealed a broken cord. The parts are available at around 20 UK pounds per pair. They consist of a cord with plastic mouldings at each end. A heavy duty spring sits inside the washer parallel to the door bottom and is streched as the door is opened. I would not recommend buying the spares as getting them off the spring is almost impossible. I had a vice with tools and gave up. Instead I bought some similar cord (try a ships chandler/dinghy shop), one metre should do (99p). Remove the spring and cut the cord off at the moulding. Put the spring in a vice and drill out the cord. Start small (2mm) and work up. Put the new cord through the hole. Bend the spring and use a small screwdriver to fish out the cord. Tie a knot in it. Take a large flatblade screwdriver and open up the coils so the knot will pass through. Drill the other plastic moulding and repeat. The cord length between the mouldings was 280mm but measure the unbroken one. The dishwasher I had a cover clipped in place at the bottom of the door. Lever this forward and the spring is easy to remove.

SOURCE: broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher

Hello,

Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

Hello- Parts are available locally at app. parts store. Need complete model #. Usually have to pull out unit to install. Replace both sides. There will be a spring, sometimes with a cord to pull door up. Either part can break, so get both. Not easy, but you can save a bit by doin it yourself. Hope this helps. -Thanks- ED

SOURCE: We just had the hinges or spring in the door of

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, I'd say you are correct ( yes I believe most homeowners aka do-it-yourselfers can repair this ). Either one or both of the door link kits/springs broken. It's an easy enough repair, though the unit does need to be pulled out, slightly
.

First, slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the plastic roller assembly and rope ( except yours is likely broke...at least one by the sounds of your description ) attached to the side.

**You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they - water, power, drain hose - must be disconnected to prevent any damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...

0fda4f0.jpg

These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

They range in price for around $20, or you can just purchase the rope/link seperately for about $4 part # 1159210 @ repairclinic.

I recommend replacing the entire kit and checking the spring itself, if it looks ok and not stretched or broke it is likely ok...they are seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today. Please take a moment and rate the solution provided here or a testimonial if you feel warranted.

Let me know if you require further assistance and good luck.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

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 fix a broken spring on a dishwasher door


You will need to pull the dishwasher out about 12" to 18" to be able to get to the springs & rope links. Many dishwashers use a "rope link" to connect between the spring and the door hinge; and in others, the door springs connect directly to the door hinges. Once you pull the dishwasher out, you will easily see what broke and what you need to fixe it.

Yesterday opened the door to dishwasher, and heard a thud sound. Now the door weighs a ton. I believe a spring/bracket broke, but can find no evidence of it. The dishwasher is working...


Hello,

Either the door spring is broken or the linkage that ties the spring to the door hinge...the springs hook onto the leg/frame asm that supports the tub then the spring fit into that linkage and the liknage fits onto the door hinges.

This link is a parts breakdown for your model and item #6 is the spring and item #11 is the linkage..their is 2 of them (one on the left and one on the right) and its reccomended that both are replaced at the same time

Here is that link so are can get a good look of how and where they go http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-MDB4000AWA/3048/0130000/M0512217/00002?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=MDB4000AWA

I have a Dometic rm2652 refrigerator the door hinge broke


the hinge is not plastic, only the insert sleeve that goes into the hole atop the door is plastic. If the actual hinge (metal arm) is broke, then you need to order a new part (not difficult if frig is 20 years or less). If you cannot find the part, go to a metal shop and show them the broken part, they usually can repair it or remake a new piece.
If the hole in the door went bad (that is: if the hole tore open and cannot hold the hinge pin) you need to have a metal repair brace added to the door. This will involve the metal shop or a good mechanic that can come to you and do the neccessary repair at the house; otherwise you need to bring the door to the metal shop. macgivor

Outer glas of the dor broken its a QA make built


I will give you summary instructions on how to repair the door outer glass on a built in kitchen.

Prepare a space on a table, where to work on the door. Cover the taple with newspaper.

Remove the door. On some model you may just need to lift and pull, on others you need to free the hinges, usually undoing few screws.

Put the door on the table. Remove fragments of splintered glass if the glass is falling apart, otherwise leave it all in one piece.

On the table remove the set of screws that are holding the external frame and glass.
Remove external glass and replace it. You can use pliers and a cloth if needed.

Do operations in revers order to refit new glass.

Jenn-Air electric wall oven door opens slightly when in bake mode


you either have a bent door hinge or a broken door spring.
check the hinges by opening the door and see if it opens past 90 degrees. if it leans towards the floor then the hinges are bent.
if not then your door springs are broken off. you can check this by seeing if the door "feels" heavy when opening.
either way the door should close tight against the frame when up and the light should not come on without opening the door.
