We have Dacor wall mount oven. We have had problems with the hinges. The door will not close completely. We actually now can see the light through the side when the door is closed. The repair person told us that someone must have pushed the door in too far or hung on the doors and the hinges are bent and that we need to replace the hinges, which sounds expensive. Is there another suggestion?

Want to switch the side the door opens on my lg dryer


The directions for reversing the door can be found on page 13 and 14, with pictures of the operation. Open the door to reverse. Check the 10 screws that need to be removed (6 on the left, 4 on the right). Remove 4 dummy screws with a screwdriver. Remove the two screws from, and disassemble, the latch. Hold on to the hinge while removing 4 screws from the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Remove the door from the cabinet cover. Move the door to the left side and insert a hinge into a hinge hole. Hold on to the hinge while screwing down the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Insert the latch to the right side and install the screws. Screw down the 4 dummy screws to the right side. Check that the door closes and latches properly.

Oven door removal


Most residential oven doors are removable by taking out two screws of each hinge. Located on the door on left n Right sides where the hinge slides into the door. These also are the way to adjust the door by loosening n then snug the screws, close the door. Adjust it, then carefully open without affecting your adjustment. Then tighten the screws. When removing the door MAKE SURE THE DOOR IS FULLY OPENED. THE HINGES ARE SPRING LOADED N WILL SNAP BACK.

Ilve oven door adjar with a gap at the top


Yes but try removing the door usually a small lever on the hinge or just lower the door a bit and lift it off. Then put it back on and make sure it sits back down into the hinges. We had one that did the same thing and the door was just a bit out of the hinge.

Model number mgr5775qdb. someone removed the oven


If there is a hole in the metal hinge near the base; put a nail in the hole to keep the hinge from closing until you get the door in place and then remove the nail.

4. Open door, remove towels and see if it helps
5. If not replace hinges

Hello dolphin 1 mom
Welcome tofixya.


You said, accidentally removed the door to my range and now it won't go back on. The door won't go back into the slots on the range.

Send me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail the diagram with the door instructions for removal and replacement.
It will not fit in here with the diagrams.
Waiting for you.

These are the installation instructions, but with no diagrams
To Remove:
1. Open the oven door. Insert door removal pins, included with
your range, into both hinge hangers. Do not remove the pins
while the door is removed from the range.
2. Slowly close the door until it rests against the door removal
pins.
3. Grasp the door on the sides with your fingers on the front of
the door and your thumbs on the inside surface.
4. Pull door straight up, then toward you. Hinge hangers will
slide out of front frame hinge slot. Do not remove door
removal pins until the door is replaced on the range.
To Replace:
1. Grasp the door on the sides with your fingers on the front of
the door and your thumbs on its inside surface.
2. Hold oven door so that the top edge of each hinge hanger is
horizontal. Insert hinge hangers into the front frame hinge
slots.
3. Tilt top of door toward range. Slide hinge hangers down onto
front frame support pins. Make sure the hinge hangers are
fully seated and engaged on the support pins.
4. Insert the door stop clip with its angular surface at the top of
the frame hinge slot, then push in the bottom of the clip until
its flanges are flush with the front frame.
5. Open the door completely and remove the door removal pins.
Save door removal pins for future use.
6. Close the door.

The storage drawer can be removed. Before removing, make sure
drawer is cool and empty.

notch and the end of the side rails.
2. Lift up the back of the drawer and pull the drawer out.
To Replace:
1. Lift up the back of the drawer and place it inside the range in
its fully forward position.
2. Lift up the front of the drawer to a level position.

rails engage with the gap in the drawer glides.
4. Once the drawer is fully engaged on both sides, slide the
drawer back into the closed position.

Ooven door not closing properly staying ajar


The one or both of the door hinges are bent. The hinges are built into the door which must be removed to replace them. Hinges cost about $24 each. There are several web pages that mention this problem, such as: http://www.fixya.com/support/t479847-kenmore_ceramic_top_electric_stove_door

RE: f5 fault code; kdrp407hss


Solution!!! The hinges that Kitchen Aid uses are the problem. If the door is opened quickly & bottoms out, the steel in the hinge bends a little. So when you go to close the door it won't close all the way.... which causes problems with the latch , latch switch, oven cleaning, etc.

After taking apart the door several times I realized the hinge can be "fixed" without even removing the door. Follow the directions in the user manual for door removal... after inserting the little metal hinge stops (a drill bit or nail will work) Close the oven door till the stops won't allow it to close any further.....then gently but firmly, push forward. This will bend the hinge back to original shape. Remove the pins...Voila!!!

I wish kitchenaid used hardened steel or a thicker hinge....then this wouldn't happen.
