It may take two people but if you pull the hinge open there should be a small hole in it. It should of had some pins in the bag if you got it new. If you don't have them find some short pins, screws or nails that will hold the hige open so you can reinstall it. Once you get the door back on you should be able to open it all the way and take the pins out.

The procedure to Disassembling the door is as follows:-- 1. Set the oven door wide open. 2. Lift the hinge jumpers with your thumb and index fingers, then turn them fully outwards to the end of stroke. 3. Turn the door towards the closure position and lay it on the jumpers: in this way the hinge's spring is blocked. By fully closing the door the hinges are unhooked from the connection slits which are integral with the oven muffle. 4) Re-assemble the door by carrying-out the aforesaid operations in the opposite order. Disassembling of the door glasses:-- for your safety, before removing the glasses you should remove the oven door. To facilitate the cleaning, after having removed the door from the oven, you can proceed with the disassembly of the glass. Release the two upper blocks so that the glass can be removed. After the cleaning you should reassemble the glass, replace the blocks and lock into position. Check that all components have been assembled correctly and than you can re-assemble the door onto the oven. check fig:-- For more help click this link directly.

I removed the oven door and took out the hinge to clean. When I tried to put the hinge and oven door back the hinge will not close it is stuck. How do I unlock or hook the hinge so my oven door closesI


You will have to pull the oven dorr up and out again, it might be a little hard to pull but the door didn't went in straight and it's preventing the hinge from closing. go to repairclinic.com for an ilustration on how the door and hinges fit in place.

How to put oven door back on after removing!


Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.

i suspect you took the door off without locking the hinges
you will have to put the hinges in the lock position before putting back.
lay door on a blanket with hinges upwards. force the hinges back and bring the locking arm up to lock the hinges.
this requires considerable strength

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

Electrolux Oven EOG9330


Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].
