Question about Ovens
Do I need to do anything to hinges on the door before I put it back. I just align the hinges on the slot and try to fit the groove on the hinge in the slot, but the hinges don't go in completely, so when I try open the oven door fully to put in the locking mechanism the hinges slip out of the slot. I understand that the groove on the hinge has to lock in into the slot for it not to slip when I open it fully.

SOURCE: cant get the oven door back on
Use a wrench to lower the hinge arms down. There is a hole in the arm that you can put a nail into through to the frame of the oven/ This should leave the arm in an outward position. Do this on both sides of the oven, or both hinges
Pick up the door, and slide the door onto the arms until they stop.
Press down on the top end of the door lightly so that you may remove the nails inserted above.
Lift the door to close. If you didn't slide the door onto the hinge pieces far enough, then repeat the procedure.

Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.

I have just replaced mine & had the same problem. I couldnt remove the cover. I found that I just couldnt grip the cover well enough. I got some rubber washing up gloves & used them to grip the cover. It was still tight but it un skrewd quite easy this way.

1. Open the oven door and remove the 2 screws at the side of the inner glass window 11cm above the hinges and lift off the door. Place it somewhere safe!
2. Remove the 4 screws that you can see nearest to the left and right edges of the oven with the door removed. These secure the oven to the kitchen unit.
3. Slide the oven forwards about 20cm out of the unit, being careful not to pull on the cable.
4. Each hinge is held in place by 2 screws at the side of the unit now exposed, about 18cm apart. Remove them and slide out the hinges. Reassembly is the reverse of the above.
5. Note that the hinges have no means of adjustment. If not working properly, renew them.
