What replacement parts should I order to keep my Kenmore oven door from just dropping down when it is opened?

If the hinge is not broken "Check the Springs".
They sometimes come off at one end or can be broken.
There are 2 one on each hinge. They are strong so be VERY careful.
As I remember they have a color code according to how strong that are according to the weight of the oven door.
The surest way is to get the MODEL NUMBER from the tag on your oven. The parts store will be able to look up the proper replacement.
I may be able to tell you more with a model number for Identification, the oven is likely a Whirlpool Product made for Kenmore. Let me know if you are in New York City area.
Hope this helps.

When oven is heating up a massive bang occurs. Sounds a bit like a gun shot. Also hinge on glass top are broken - where can we purchase parts to fix this.

The loud noise is either from sheet metal expanding under stress or an electrical arc. I recommend unplugging the oven, taking the back off, and inspecting the wiring to the oven heating element and the sheet metal near the wiring. Also inspect the plug and socket, oven control and the oven heater element itself for similar problems. If you see signs that arcing has occurred (burn marks, especially with melted metal), repair the wiring and reroute it if necessary to prevent arcing.

If you don't find anything, first make sure the oven rests firmly and levelly on all four feet to eliminate any twisting stress. If there is a problem here, the noise should go away after one or two more cycles once you fix it. A twist in the oven could have something to do with the broken hinges. In the worst case, you may have to loosen and tighten a lot of sheet metal screws to relieve stress in the assembly. It would best if you could locate where in the oven the noise is produced before doing this.

I was unable to find any reference to parts for your model. Please look for the model label either on the doorframe or inside the drawer under the main oven door and verify the complete model number. Also look at the hinges for a part number stamped on them. There are a number of on-line appliance parts stores that carry Dacor parts; you should be able to find something with a search for "Dacor" and the part or model number.

Dacor model W305 blew an element. Replaced it. Won't work.

The fan and element rely on a supply from the thermostat, so perhaps when the element blew, it damaged the thermostat, another possibility is that there is a fuse of some sort in the oven that has blown as a result of the element blowing.
It is highly unlikely that the fan and element are faulty, you will have to look further.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks, and merry xmas.

Cant find the model number on a Belling Format cooker

Try looking inside the oven, or at the bottom front
