Re: Electric Range Oven Door hinge

Open door to 45 degree angle and not too hard lift door on that side and push firmly down. If it does not catch then you will need to buy another hinge.

New Never used electric range,oven door is no clossing properly,lights are always on

Unless the door is standing ajar you need to look for the manual light switch. This is normally near the other controls... allows you to light the oven interior without opening the door for food inspection via the window. If the door is standing slightly open then bring it fully down and then attempt to slip it back further into the hing slots. Oven doors normally are removable from the fully horizontal position where their springs become inactive and the stresses on the hinges are zero. This allows the hing plates to slide in or out of the slots on the oven chassis.

Clean Oven Door Glass

To remove oven door:
1. The oven door is held to the oven door hinges by two
screws. (One in each hinge.)
2. To remove the oven door remove the two screws.
Two screws
3. Close the door to the broil stop position and lift up.
then remove the door handle and take out all the screws around the edges of the door and pull the out side cover from the inner but a word of caution there are about three or 4 pieces of glass they are tempered and about 100 bucks a piece and most times they wont get real clean and will get messy again

Oven door

it depends on the type of hinges, you would most likely have to push the hinges down and latch it with the small hook on both sides then put your door back on , push the door fully open ond unhook the small hooks.
