I had to take off my Beko oven door in order to get a washing machine past it in a narrow galley kitchen ... unfortunately I had no idea that the 3 screws at the top and the 3 screws at the bottom were actually screwed into metal plates BEHIND the facia, and these plates are no longer aligned with the visible holes. Any advice? I've been 3 weeks without an oven and am craving pizza! :-(
Hi - in the end I found the cheapest local oven repairers and they ended up having to do a bodge job ... they admitted that Beko was a bad brand with lots of design problems, this being just one of them. By disconnecting and opening up the back he managed to get one of the hinges back on (with my help!), but for the other he had to resort to using bigger screws coming in from the front. Recently, after less than 18 months of use, the oven and one of the hotplates stopped working on the same night. I gave the whole thing up as a bad bet and ordered a more expensive Indesit I'm now completely happy with. I think with ovens you get what you pay for. I would never touch another Beko ANYTHING with a barge pole!

Hi, I have pasted the instructions for your Smeg oven you below:
9.4 Removing the internal glass panels
The glass in the door should always be kept thoroughly clean. To facilitate
cleaning, it is possible to remove the door (see 9.2 Removing the door) and
place it on a canvas, or open it and lock the hinges in order to extract the glass
The glass panels of the door can be completely removed by following the
instructions provided below.
Warning: before removing the glass panels, make sure that at least one of the
door's hinges has been locked in the open position as described in "9.2
Removing the door". This operation may have to be repeated during the glass
removal process if the door is accidentally freed.
Removing the internal glass panel:
• Remove the internal glass panel by
pulling it upwards, following the
movement indicated by the arrows. Doing
this detaches the 4 pins attached to the
glass from their slots in the oven door.
Removing the intermediate glass panels
(on some models only):
• Some multifunction models have an
intermediate glass panel. Remove the
intermediate panel by lifting it upwards.
• It is now possible to clean the external
glass panel and the panels removed
previously. Use absorbent kitchen roll. In
the case of stubborn dirt, wash with a
damp sponge and neutral detergent.
Replacing the glass panels:
• Replace the panels in the reverse of the
order in which they were removed.
• Reposition the internal glass panel, taking
care to centre and insert the 4 pins
attached to the glass into their slots in the
oven door by applying slight pressure.
