How do I replace the long screw that holds the door up on the door hinges,on a '97 gmc Sonoma?


I have done a 100 of these.

The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin.
There are two hinges that hold the door to body.
when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges.
Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge.
Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.

Here is a youtube video to help you.
Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.

Lid is stuck, can't open it.


Have you checked the lift assist hinge springs on the back of the grill. If they are broken or have come loose, it's impossible for one person to lift the lid. Also, if the lid gasket is severely worn, this could cause the lid to stick.

If none of the above is the culprit, contact Big Green Egg by email or phone
Customer-Support@BigGreenEgg.com or call (800) 793-2292.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

When my green egg gets to temp over 600 the lid becomes lose and falls off when you lift it. I've already broke one. Why is this


It sounds like a problem with the hinge springs, rather than the lid. One will usually break before you realize it has. Then the second one goes, before you realize it. And it's usually when you have the Egg heated to a high temperature. You should also check the steel band around the egg, that is part of the hinge system to make sure it has not been overtightened or is to loose.

The folks at Big Green Egg take this sort of thing seriously and are devoted to their customers. You should also contact them about this issue.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Can you over heat the egg to the point that it is very difficult to open?


I have never heard of that happening. But, the lid of a Big Green Egg is heavy and some times the hinge springs either snap or get weak. Which makes it very difficult to open. But, sealing itself shut, because of high heat, I don't think so.

Doors don't shut all the way and light stays on


It sounds like your door hinges are worn, usually on older ovens due to weight of door. Most oven doors can be removed by simply raising the tabs/ fitting small screwdriver on both hinges(refer to user manual) etc. Once door is removed you can place a medium size screwdriver or similar in the hinge slot, pushing the hinge plate on the bottom in an outward direction, thereby bending this plate(very slightly) forward. This will make the door close fully, activating the door switch, and turning off the oven light. This is only a short term solution, as this hot air escaping can lead to further problems. Hinge pair will need replacing. Door hinges are spring loaded ALWAYS KEEP FINGERS AND HANDS CLEAR OF LOADED HINGES.

Lid is stuck closed, cannot get it open


Is it really cold where you are in June? If so, light a small fire in the very bottom of the Egg behind the draft door. After a while the Egg will warm up the ice keeping the lid closed will melt.

If it's not really cold where you are...get out a butter knife and slice it open around the rim. Then buy yourself a new gasket here http://www.outdoorhome.com/productcart/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=33

Big green egg does not heat above 600


I'm not sure why you would want your BGE to go above 600 but here goes. Are you using a full load of hardwood lump charcoal (to the top of the fire ring...lump because it burns hotter)? Do you have the draft door and the daisy wheel wide open (may even want to remove the daisy wheel)?

Can't regular temp.


Get yourself a reliable temperature probe if you don't have one already. The one that comes with the BGE is good but swings up and down alot, don't trust it. I recommend the Maverick RediChek. Get a fire going then install the thermo directly on your grill (as per manufacturer instructions). Be very careful of flareups as it will destroy the thermo wires. When the smoker temp hits around 250 close the draft door halfway. Then close the daisy wheel so that only the 5 oval slots are open. Watch the temp for 10 minutes to see what it's doing. If it is still going up, begin adjusting the draft door only by closing about an inch every 10 minutes until you see the temp going down to where you want it. Then adjust the daisy wheel ever so slightly until you reach the desired temp. It can be a little tricky since every day is different when it comes to humidity, outside temperature, weather conditions...etc. I can keep just about any temp I want with my LBGE once I have it dialed in. Have fun.

Hard cooked eggs


Hi, You can cook up to 12 large size eggs at one time in this steamer. Fill the base to the medium fill line, place the eggs over or close to the steam holes, and cook for approximately 35 minutes. If this helps, please rate this answer. Thanks! Hal
