Question about KitchenAid KESC307 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

How do I take the oven door off my Kitchenaid stove? The handle fell off, so I removed through shear jiggling the outer door to reattach the handle, but I can't get it back on, as the 2 lips on the bottom that hold the door up need to be lowered and loosened, but I can't get a screwdriver or allen key shape anything under to the screws. It maybe easier to take the whole door off...reattach the front and then put the door back on.

SOURCE: handle on oven door falling

Murray...after a DJ here in NY from the '60's!

First, why is the handle falling off? Is it loose or damaged? Most of these handles are only plastic with holes tapped in. If the holes are damaged and you can't fix them, you will have to replace. Most handles are through bolted in the door. You should be able to access those screws from the inside of the door. If not....

How do take a door apart: First locate any screws in the bottom of the door. Remove them. Open the door and remove screws from the sides and inside of door. Get help supporting the outside of the door and note that it will snap shut when you remove any weight from the door. Caution, most door glass is not well clipped in...it may come loose!!!! You may want to take pictures of the inside of the door once you open it. Once the door is apart, locate any fasteners holding the handle and attempt to tighten them. If not successful, you'll need that new handle. Get an extra set of hands to help with removal and reinstallation of that door skin. You'll need 'em!

SOURCE: cleaning inside glass door, kitchenaid range

you do no tneed to remove the top to release the glass, yea aslong as the lower trim is removed then the only thing holding the glass, is the grease/sticky rubber gaket. lift up from the bottom slightly and twist out from the tabs. just be carefull when cleaning inner door glass, those "ridges in the paint, are just that paint, so dont use anything abrasive, youll ruin the finish!

Oven turns itself on


THE DOOR HAS A SAFETY SWITCH THAT SHUTS THE UNIT OFF WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED KEEPING YOU FROM GETTING "ZAPPED WITH RADIATION" ACTUALLY ITS JUST RADIO WAVES, ANYWAY THE JIGGLING OF THE HANDLE TO START IT IS WHATS HAPPENING THERE. IT COMING ON IS JUST A SHORT IN THE SWITCH THAT MAY BE FROM AN ALREADY SET TIME, OR ITS JUST MAKING CONTACT WHERE ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO. ANYWAY YOU NEED A NEW DOOR SWITCH.

How do I replace kitchenaid microwave door handle?


This is not a fun one if you take a putty knife and go in between the outer door and frame you can release the outer door cover hears the catch over time the door frame becomes brittle so there is a 50/50 chance the frame will break trying to separate it

Replece glass oven door kitchenaid kebs278dss8


Oven doors have at least two panes of glass (air gap between so little ones touching outer glass do not get burned). You remove the screws around edges of door (top, sides, & bottom) and lift frame up and forward to get outer face off. The glass in ovens is tempered to take heat so you can not just use regular glass. You will find outer piece is sometimes the entire size of door but is painted black with the "dot" pattern that lines up with inner piece. Once you get face / frame off you will usually find the handle screws and mounts for inner glass. Sometimes inner glass sealed with high temp sealant. But make sure you use correct glass or someone could get hurt.

Door handle fell off of oven


Rachel, every range oven door I've seen, that was built in the last 20 years comes off the range by opening it about 6 - 8 in. from the top of the door frame, taking a firm grip on both sides about 8 - 10 in. down, bend the knees slightly, get a good grip on the door and pull up sharply. The door should release from the spring hinge on each side. Once you have it out you can lay it flat on the kitchen table, (preferably on a towel or cloth of some sort), with the inside facing up. There should be several screws that hold the interior portion of the door to the outer portion. If you remove these screws you should be able to remove the inner portion of the door, by pulling straight up, easily, and put it on the floor or if there's room, on the counter or table. Now you should be able to locate the holes the screws go into, to hold the handle on the door. If they connect from the interior, you should have found them when the interior was off the first time. Take them and install the handle. If there are none, find some chatterproof washers and put one on the inner side of each screw to keep them from loosening again. Once you have the handle secured to the door you should be able to put it back together. After you have assembled the two halves of the oven door, make sure the two hinge assemblies are pulled away from the frame of the oven at approx. a 35 degree angle. This is necessary to have the proper clearance to allow the door to slide down onto the hinges and grab on inside. The door should slide right down over the two hinges and then you can close it up.

Looking to replace the plastic piece on the vertical edge of the door (handle side) on my Kitchenaid Microwave/Hood combo khms145kss1. Is it possible to just replace this instead of purchasing the entire...


They don't show the entire door assembly as being available.

But you can replace the outer door frame (outer door panel)part number 8184319.

At $167.94, it's not cheap. But you can get it here.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

In some cases, you then have to gently rotate the handle to unlock it.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Replace inner oven door glass on kitchenaid wall oven


To replace the door glass do the following:

0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it.
1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door.
2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel.
3Removethe inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly.
4 the frame will be free now,
5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place.
6 Replace the inner glass.
7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back

I also report testimonials for your model:

"
removed the door from the oven by releasing clips attached to the door hinge -- very nicely engineered. Removed about 6 philips head screws to allow the door assembly to be taken apart for access to the glass. Lifted out the broken glass, cleaned the inside of the door, installed the new glass, reassembled the door (a two minute project), and reattached the door to the oven. Cleaning the inside of the door"

"
I removed the oven door by lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the disassembled door shown on your website. "

You'll notice there are small clips holding the stainless outer door to the black metal inner door. Get a bunch of putty knives (butter knives work too) and work a knife into about every other clip. I did it on the bottom. Once you're sure all the bottom clips are free, and you've removed the three screws on the side of the door, you'll be able to gently pull the stainless outer door away from the black inner door and get to the handle screws.

I bent both doors in this process, and tore the black plastic liner into a few pieces while I was getting everything out, so I had to buy a new door ($200). Be careful.
