Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Slide-In Electric Range - Black

1 Answer

The tabs on the handle don't keep the glass contained on the oven door. The handle has come loose and whenever the oven door is opened, the glass is released, held only by the bottom. How do I tighten the handle to maintain the tab's pressure on the glass panel?

    "Back sides" being where as opposed to inside? Figure I'm standing looking at the door from the front with it closed...are any screws obvious (to people other than me!)?

  • cathleen_bou Aug 19, 2010

    I was able to undo the 2 screws directly inside from the handle but that does not allow the handle unit to be removed.I can see where the handle itself needs to be tightened from inside but cannot access those screws. Do I have to fully remove the door? And how?

    The model # is CFES355DS1. I can feel small screws underneath near the hinges but can't figure out how to remove the door!

Can you please tell me how to remove the oven door?


If you are trying to clean between the inner (heat shield) glass and the outer glass (safety glass for looks), you may not have to remove the whole door. On most models, the outer glass is either integral to the handle and frame or at least is trapped by the handle and frame. Open the door and look inside. There should be either two or four screws right at the top that hold the handle and frame assembly in place. You may find that when you take these off, the handle slides off, and the glass can either slide up or the whole frame will rock outward. Be VERY careful, this is safety glass and shatters into 2mmx4mm pieces easily if you bump it.

If the whole door has to come off, most new models don't even need screws taken out... you just pry up the two metal tabs next to the hinges, and it unlocks and you slide the door up off the hinges. See the link for instructions if you need to remove the door and take it apart. This covers most oven doors.

Whenever the door blows open you have some major problems. Maybe it is time for a new microwave oven.

Good luck

Loose handle.


To access the door screws on MOST microwave ovens, you need to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains:

This can be peroformed with the door in place, or with the door removed. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Door handle is loose


To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door. You will find the screws behind the panel.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Loose Oven door handle


Ok you need to use plastic or rubber washers against the glass so it doesn't break. To stop the handle comming loose again you need to put "Lock Tight" on the screw threads then tighten carefully only untill the handle isn't loose. You can get this from any good hardware store. cheers

Please give feedback

My oven door shattered. i bought the glass and the outer trim. i need help installing it


This job is best done by two people, one to hold the glass in place, and the other to operate the screwdriver and position the handle and trim pieces.
The glass is held in place by the handle assembly at the top and a metal track at the bottom.  You remove the glass by removing the handle. Open the door part way until you have access to the back of the door.  The door handle is held in place by two screws on the back (the oven side).  Remove the screws, taking care to hold the handle in place.  Be sure to brace the glass, then slowly move the handle away from the door frame.  Remove the glass.  The side trim pieces will probably fall away from the door frame, although they will probably not fall all the way out.  My advice is to carefully remove them.  Be careful; they have tabs on the bottom edge that hold them in the door frame and these tabs are easily broken.  If yours are still in one piece you might just reuse them.
Remove the old glass panel and clear the bottom track of any debris.  Put the new glass panel in, beginning with the bottom track.  Set the oven handle on the top edge of the glass panel; there are tracks on the back of the handle assembly the top edge of the glass fits into.  Bring the handle toward the door frame, taking care not to let the glass panel slip out of the tracks.   The door handle has two collars that go through holes in the door frame.  Once you've got the collars through these holes, you can put the two screws back in that secure the handle to the door.
Take one of the side trim pieces.  Each trim piece has a narrow edge and a wide edge (like a capital "L"), The narrow edge faces the front and the wide edge faces the side of the door.  Each piece has a corner edge with a little tab sticking out.  These face down.  The opposite end of the trim piece has recessed edges. These slide under the edge of the door handle.  You want to insert this end first, then work your way along the length of the trim piece pushing the narrow edge between the door frame and the glass panel.  
Here's the tricky part.  To get the bottom in, the best thing to do is to open (or better yet remove altogether) the drawer beneath the oven to gain access to the screws that hold the bottom track of the glass panel to the door.  Loosen the screw that holds the track in on the same side as the trim piece you're working on; the screws are on the bottom of the track about 1 inch in from the edge. Loosen the screw slightly and pull down on that edge of the trim as you push the trim piece in behind the glass.  Repeat until the trim piece tab slips through the hole for it on the track.  Tighten the screw back in place.
Repeat this process for the other trim piece. If you're patient and gentle, it shouldn't be too difficult.  I just did this myself today (2/7/09).
Good luck.

Loose oven door handle


I had the same problem. We took the door off completely & turned it upside down. There are screws on the bottom of the door, take them out, take off bottom trim piece that holds the outside glass panel in place, remove glass panel and you can access the door handle screws and clean the inside of the glass while you are at it.

Loose Oven door handle


Hi,
You may have to get some loctite brand paste in a tube for applying to the threads of the bolts that hold it on.
This will prevent the screws from loosening.
Another way would be to get some spring washers or star washers at your local hardware store such as menards.
