You’ll need to open the door completely and engage the small "locks" that are at the base of the hinge. This will ensure that the spring loaded hinges do not "spring open" when you remove the door. Now remove the hinges from the door by removing a few Phillips head screws that hold the hinge assembly in place. The new hinges must be "preloaded" into the Open position using a vise or some means of holding the hinge in place while you use a small section of pipe to provide leverage needed to open the hinge so that the Locks can be engaged.
Once the new hinges are pre-loaded and the locks are engaged, you can reverse the procedure to re-install the hinges into the door and re-install the door. Usually, it can be done without pulling out the oven. But if you are not able to access the hinge panel (part#23 in this schematic), you'll need to take the wall oven all the way out so you can remove the entire side panel.
Also check the hinge support (part#20 in the schematic), if it also needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
