Husband went to open the door and it fell off on one side. Now it is completely off and not going back on. The hinges are visable on the door frame and there are slots in the oven, but they are not grabbing and staying connecting. HELP! Toddler awakes in the morning!

Re: Glass oven door fell off
IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN.
TRY TO PUTTHE DOOR INTO THE DOWN POSITION ( AS BEST YOUCAN)
AND LOOK AT THE HINGE - THERE IS A PIVOT LINK THAT YOU REPOSITION TO LOCK THE HINGE IN THE OPEN POSITION.
THEN TAKE THE DOOR OFF
USE A LARGE PAIR OF MULTIGRIPS TO OPEN THE FAULTY HINGE TO A POSITION WHERE YOU CAN SET THE LINK.
IF YOU GET THE DOOR RIGHT- PRACTICE TAKING IT OFF AND ON
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The inner door glass is held on by two clips at the bottom (hinge side) and two slides near the handle side. Remove the door from the oven and lie it the worktop flat with the hinges uppermost. Near the hinges you will see the glass is angles leaving a triangle of metal frame either side near the hinges.Rest the outside of your hand on the metal for purchase and then pull on the glass along the bottom edge (reasonable tug required) this will disengage the bottom clips and then slide the glass down about an inch to remove completely.
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.
the glass pieces should only fit back in one way, holes will only go one way , as far as the hinges, the need to be locked open in order to replace back into the unit, there is either a small hole in corner of hing that when pushed wll align with another hole in hing allowin for a thin blade screwdriver to be inserted adn hold in hte locked position,... the other way is a small locking mechanism is loacated on the top of hinge that when fully extended will lock hinge open for reattachment... you would need to REALLY PRESS that hinge to lock in place..
Hi Try not to open door with handle as this may cause to glass to smash. When you open the door you will see two pin sticking forward near the top of the door just further back on the top of the door is two small barbs push down on these barbs located in line but further back from the pins.This will release the top of the outer door.The bottom of the glass is hooked into the hinge. with the top released lift door glass away.You should find screw in inner door refit screw with some loctite.
The following worked on my zbf360x built in Zanussi. First you need to remove the oven door. To do this open the door half way. On each hinge there are two small metal flaps. Lift both of these. Now with the door still half open pull hard on the door. You will find the hinges spring and if you release the pull now it will just spring back. When the hinges spring give an extra hard pull on one side and then the other each hinge should pop out. Once you have the door off just remove the small screws on the bottom of the door to allow it to hinge open and clean the inside glass.
0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it. 1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door. 2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel. 3Removethe
inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder
you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly. 4 the frame will be free now, 5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place. 6 Replace the inner glass. 7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back
I also report testimonials for your model:
"removed the door from the
oven by releasing clips attached to the door hinge -- very nicely
engineered. Removed about 6 philips head screws to allow the door
assembly to be taken apart for access to the glass. Lifted out the
broken glass, cleaned the inside of the door, installed the new glass,
reassembled the door (a two minute project), and reattached the door to
the oven. Cleaning the inside of the door"
"I removed the oven door by
lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time
making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to
get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that
the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced
the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the
parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where
the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the
disassembled door shown on your website."
LOOK WHERE THE HINGE METS THE OVEN DOOR FACING..you will see on the hinge a tab with the door open pull these forward this will lock the hinges do this on both sides then closed the door slightly and lift up the door will come off then you can unscrew the bottom scres to access glass
