Oven door Our oven door fell off, no joke. How do you re-attach the bottom part of the door. The hinges seem to be spring loaded, but the slots won't stretch out far enough to fit back into the grooves. Is there some trick to it? Will

1 Answer

A couple people suggested to use a couple of shims to hold the spring loaded part open enough to hook it back on, then remove the shims.

Eletrolux wall oven modelE30ew7cgps2 change door hinges


The hinges mount inside the oven door, open the door all the way, then move the small clips that are riveted to the hinge to the position opposite of where they sit now... this will hold the hinge springs open. Lift up the door as if to close it, then the hinges will lift out of their slots and you can remove the door... Electrolux Range Stove Oven Door Hinge 318244305

Cannot put the oven door back on


Hi Elspeth:
Don't know what make or model you are dealing with, but from personal experience, here's what I dealt with.
- Oven door is mounted on spring loaded hinges. That's what keeps it in the closed position.
- To remove the door, it has to be fully opened, then lifted from close to the hinges, and slid out.
- To put the door back on, the hinges have to be in the "door open" position. Since they are spring loaded this can be tricky getting them into position.
- It's easier with a helper, one on each side....... slide the hinge legs into the slots. You'll need to lift the door slightly towards the closed position to allow the hinge legs to engage in the secure or latched position.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

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.

Doors don't shut all the way and light stays on


It sounds like your door hinges are worn, usually on older ovens due to weight of door. Most oven doors can be removed by simply raising the tabs/ fitting small screwdriver on both hinges(refer to user manual) etc. Once door is removed you can place a medium size screwdriver or similar in the hinge slot, pushing the hinge plate on the bottom in an outward direction, thereby bending this plate(very slightly) forward. This will make the door close fully, activating the door switch, and turning off the oven light. This is only a short term solution, as this hot air escaping can lead to further problems. Hinge pair will need replacing. Door hinges are spring loaded ALWAYS KEEP FINGERS AND HANDS CLEAR OF LOADED HINGES.

My oven door does not close tight


These hinges are now obsolete and you cannot get them anywhere. The poblem with this type of hinge is not with weak springs or anything like that, it is with the pivot pin in the door hinge. Follow these instructions and it will not cost you anything for the repair.
It is best to remove the oven from the housing. Remove both sides of the oven panels, you have to remove the top first, then the sides (remove about 20 screws all together). Support the bottom oven door first by tying a bit of string between the bottom and top oven door hand rails. This will stop the door falling down when you remove the springs. unhook the springs and the door will just slide out. (Use a loop of string attached to the back end of the spring to pull it from its holes.)
Dismantle the door by removing the screws. You will probably find that the the hinge pivot pins have come away from the U shaped hinge bracket. The secret is to make sure that these are fixed firm back into the bracket. What I did was to nip the U hinge bracket in a vice, (or use pliers) so that the pin will now protude slightly each side of the bracket. This allows more surface bearing area so the pin will not pull itself out of the hinge. To further make sure, I glued the ends of the pin with epoxy resin.
Then reassemble.
My door now feels like a new one even though it is 15 years old.

The oven door fell off how do i put it back on?


hi. most oven doors are removable. Since yours is off let me help you put it back on. The hinges will pull out and stay out about 1/3 of the way. Get both hinges situated that way and then carefully slide the door back onto the hinges thru the slots on the bottom of the door. This is easier if you have another person to assist you.

Oven door closure


I had the same problem, the door will come off by opening it partially and lifting it up off the hinge brackets. Be careful, because the brackets are spring loaded and will snap shut when the door is removed. You will find a hinge pin with a spring clip at the bottom of the hinge. It's likely that the spring clip has come off of one of the hinges and the pin fell out. You can find the drawings and part number(s) on the "partsdirect" website using your model number, and even order them there.
