The process is likely model specific. Your owner's manual might describe how to do it.
I have a Frigidaire/Electrolux (PLEB30S8CCB) and I find removal and replacement some what tricky. The owner's manual says to reverse the removal process, but I believe that that is incomplete.
To take it off, you open the door all of the way, flip up a metal connecting loop on each of the door sides to "bind" an upper J-shaped and lower L-shaped bar on each hinge, and pull the door out, while lifting up the outer handle side. (The pull motion frees the lower L-bar and the upward motion allows the J-bar to slip under a metal roller.)
To put it back on, each side of the oven has a two-part slot. The upper part is for the J-bar and the lower for the L-bar. Put the J-bars part way into their upper slots with the handle side of the door raised slightly to help slip under the metal rollers. Then ensure that the L-bars are fitting into their lower slots. Push the door straight in until a notch on the bottom of the L-bars sets on the bottom of their slots. The trick then is to push the door down to its fully open position, which allows you to flip the metal loops to separate the bars and allow the door to close. Note that pushing the door down makes some noise, but the door should go no more that level with the floor or something may be out of position.
1) Unplug unit
2) Remove back plate covering controls on back of oven
3) Notice 2 brackets, 1 on each end holding 2 screws-remove the screws
4) On front remove 3 screws underneath front ledge directly above where oven door closes
5) lift top up about an inch, and pull forward towards front of oven
6) You can now lift it to service - beware wires are still connected - dont pull too far forward and up
Thanks for using FixYa. There is
an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven.
Resetting this switch might solve the issue.
To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the
power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking
mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control
panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the
face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access
to the space behind it.
Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for
a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device
is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the
sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
Unplug the range from power. Open the oven door. Look on the right and left sides of the oven frame just below the top. Remove the 2 screws. Pull the top forward. Remove the wiring harness connector at the back.Lift the top up and off. Set the top aside.
See page 18 for diagrams on your lock which is activated by an electric solenoid.
Here is the solution to get the lock to open:
Pull the unit out - on the upper right side top of the back (when facing the oven door), there is a small plastic wheel attached to a bracket with a 0.125" OD lever attached. When the wheel rotates via the electronic solenoid, the lever goes front to back. This is connected to the door latch in such a way that when you move the latch lever toward you (the front of the oven), the latch moves to the left, unlocking the door! Either spin the wheel by hand to move the lever forward, or remove one screw to loosen the housing, then remove the lever from the wheel and push forward toward the door.
Hope this resolves the issue for you. If so please remember to accept and rate my answer as this is exremely important to me as an expert on the site. Many Thanks.
I have spilt milk flowing down the side fo oven/counter top and needed to pull out the stove to quickly get it wiped up..I pulled the stove out by the oven door handle. The hinge sprang on the right side and the oven door is now off on one side how to get it back on?? My husband lifted the door up and the whole door is now off.
It is very difficult to replace, what are we doing wrong???!!! Please help. I belive it is a whirlpool electronic model. thankyou.
You will need a window pack, part number WB56T10152 which is not hard to replace. You should be able to order it right from GE, or an appliance repair firm can get it for you, often without extra shipping if they can combine it with other parts they need to order. Should set you back just over $100. You can remove your oven door to make it easier to work on. Use a little screwdriver to pull down the little square hole you will see on the top of the hinge opening on the frame of the oven on each side. That little metal part will lock the hinge open. Next, lift on the door and pull it toward you. The hinge actually stays with the door and lifts right out of the rectangular opening in the oven frame. Reverse procedure to reinstall repaired door.
be exstreamly careful do not put your fingers near the hinge. somehow pull the hinge apart till the stay open and you may see a hole in it, put somethjing like a nail into it to prevent it from snapping closed. then put it into the slots on the oven till they are in the right position then open the door all the way and then just pull out the nails. That is if it is that type of hinge.
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.
