I finally got my door back on, I had to wedge a butter knife in the hinge to keep it open, then I could put it back on the pins and slide the metal cover/locking thinge over it. Was a pain in the ass.

You can try putting vice grips behind the hinges to hold them open while you insert them.

Like ljleppington, I had to use two vise-grips to hold the hinges in THE FULLY OPEN POSITION. It just would not work (even with vise-grips) in the "broil" position.

It's the third time I had to repair the cheap, broken mounting for the door handle. Each previous time it was 'difficult' to re-mount the door. This time it was almost impossible -- until I saw the vise-grip solution here..

I have a Amana self clean oven/range. Wife cleand glass and cleaner got between glass. removed door and cleaned interior glass. put it together and couldn't get door back on. tried for 3hrs. then found out that it has built in spring locks with no f---ng instruction anywhere. When opening door pivot the built in stops to lock the spring open, reverse and pivot locks (when open) back. You're done. Amanna should included instructions. Id like to see the guy who wrote the manual. John

I can surely relate with this - what a NIGHTMARE!!! Even with all of the tips I found posted, nothing worked! I was successful in getting on side locked on, but the other just wouldn't cooperate. I tried the butter knife, the vice grips, and 2 shorty screwdrivers to no avail.
As John (above) explained, there are stop locks to keep the hinges from snapping closed. However, after an hour of fighting with the hinges, I did not have the hand strength to open them far enough to engage the lock. It's basically you against the springs at this point. I'm sure to have bruises on my palms from trying.
Much to my helper's horror (my 14yro daughter), I finally removed the door completely again, and set it on the carpet by my couch arm. I pushed the hinges to the open (broiler) position, leaned if far enough over on the couch arm that I could use my foot to pry the hinge open even farther to get it to the point that I could lock the hinge in place. From there, we set them in, opened the door to release the hinge lock, and pushed it up into the fully locked (onto the oven frame) position.
Then we high fived. VICTORY IS OURS!!! Nothing like spending all day just trying to get an oven door back on. Thankfully, I still have just enough strength to lift a frosty beverage of success. I think cleaning the racks will have to wait til another day.
Hope this helps someone else!

Took maytag oven door off to clean cannot get it back on hinges will.not stay open and keep.snapping back fingers r sore took a pipe to pull them back but they wont stay How do I keep them from snapping...


It is a two person job unless you want to pull the whole stove out and take the cover off and then remove the springs. Put the door back on and put the springs back and the put the cover back on.

How to remove oven door maytag gas precision touch control 700


most oven doors can be removed by opening the door until its about 1/4 open, or when it will stay open part way. when the door is in this position you should be able to just lift it off the hinges straight up. make sure you dont accidently push the "arms" of the door back in, as they are spring loaded and are hard to get back out, especially when the dorrs is removed. When done just slide back on the way you took it off.

Door on whirlpool oven will not go back on.


To remove you lowered the door all the way down. Then lifted the door out. If he hinges were then moved to the shut position you will have trouble getting it on.

If this is correct so far...

push the hinges back down and try again. It can be tricky. It should go on.

I need to clean between glass plate and oven door on my Zanussi electric cooker. I have drips where I've wiped the door over, also there is dust in between. Model ZBF 360W, Serial 61705615, Prod. No....


Hi,

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.

Hope this helps,

How do get access to the door hinge of my Maytag CWE4800ACB oven


In first, excuse my poor english if i make some mistake.

I hare repair the same problem. part broken in left side and the door fall.
You have to pull out the oven from the wall, use some objet to support the oven,small table or plastic box if you dont want to put down completely.

You have to unsecure the electric wire connection in back if you whant to pull out enough for remove the left cover. You have to remove some parts in front for acces to screws on the side cabinet.

In my case the hinge was broken, i have soldered and fix again.
If hard to replace the spring in the mecanism, you better to do this on the bench before put all in the side of the oven.

I think the maytag oven have the same problem.
Other problem also is the timer alarm sound in the night went you sleeping, prob whit switch sensitif pc board. Now i turn off the breaker in the back of oven all night, and i sleep good.

Bye..

How can I remove oven door so that I can replace the broken glass


I just took my oven door off and took it apart to clean the glass inside. I don't have a maytag but they probably all work alike. Just open the door like you are going to broil something and just lift it up. It should slide right off. Shouldn't have to unscrew anything. Hope this helps. Arlene

Smeg Double Oven SD08


this can be hard to do as you should have locked the hinges with the door fully opened before taking it off. the hard part now is (with the door off) you have to push the spring loaded hinges down and lock them with small hook located on each hinge once locked the door will go back on the oven. you then open the door fully and unlock the hinges, good luck

Amana ARG7300 Oven Door won't go back on


The hinges are not sticking out enough ( tabs have wore down ) to engage the hinges on the door . Push the hinges out with a screwdriver and measure the distance to a screw further up the door and cut two pieces of wood (one for each side ) .push the hinges back out and jam the wood in . It goes in easy and the wood falls out when you put the door to open

Whirlpool oven door


Push the hinges out till they click once. At this point, get your nails or screws ready. Use a screw driver and wedge the hinges further apart. When you see the hole in the hinge appear, put the nail in it to hold it open. With both done, drop door in place; open door slightly, and remove nails.
