Re: i lifted it by its door and its came off, not broke...
Ok wht you have to do is grab the hinge with pliers or your hand and fold the hinge to the open position,carefull this hinge has some pressure to it and you dont want to pinch your skin ,once the hinge is open,you want to take a screw or strong nail and stick it thru the hole that is between the top of the hinge and bottom in the center put the nail thru the hole and let the hinge close slow i,it will hold the hinge 3/4 open,now hook the door on it will be 3/4 open once you feel it latch on the door open the door all the way pull the nails out and close the door ,it takes a little practice but youll get it remember to use the nail to hold the hinge open,youll see the hole on the hinge

The hinges mount inside the oven door, open the door all the way, then move the small clips that are riveted to the hinge to the position opposite of where they sit now... this will hold the hinge springs open. Lift up the door as if to close it, then the hinges will lift out of their slots and you can remove the door... Electrolux Range Stove Oven Door Hinge 318244305
1. Fully open the oven door.
2. Move the catch levers on the right and left-hand sides to the fully open position.
3. Placing the door at an upward angle toward you, grasp the door with both hands and lift it out of the hinges toward you.
4. undo the screws in each Connor & lift out the glass.
5. do the same with the handle screws, then put new handle on.
6.repeat above steps backwards.
I have had that trouble a couple of times. This might work. The door is usually attached to the body by two hinges with arms. You can lift the door off those arms and hinges by opening the door a few inches and lifting the whole door up in the air. Try this GENTLY. If the door acts like it will come off the body, it might be misaligned. Try lifting the door, and putting it back a few times, sort of gently twisting it from side to side. Really be gentle. This has worked for me several times. Be blessed.
Open the door and look at the hinges the connect the oven door to the oven body, on each side you will notice a piece that can be moved back and forth without moving the door, roll each side toward the oven body this should be the locked position, now try to close the door and you will notice the hinges lift up. At this time you need to pull up and push forward on the door and both hinges will come out.
All oven door typically lift off the hinges by design. If you open the door to what is referred as the broil position. You know when the door stops about 4 to 6 inches open at the top. Then do the following.
1. Lift the door up completely off the opposite hinge still in place and remove. Set the door aside carefully as if has glass window, you do not want to break.
2. Then set both hinges at the broiler stop position. If one is all the way in to door fully closed position pull it out with your hand or with pliers till it stops @ broiler position. If all the way down as if door was fully open, lift hinge until it stops at broiler position. CAUTION- THE HINGES ARE SPRING LOADED AND CAN SNAP BACK INTO FULLY CLOSED POSITION. You can use a heavy glove or if you have an oven mitten, that can work to protect your fingers. DO NOT GET YOUR FINGERS BETWEEN HINGE AND OVEN OR CAN PINCH FINGERS.
3. Now carefully lift the door over the hinges set at the broiler position. Careful not to bump them when doing so or can snap closed. If does, reset hinge to broiler position and repeat. Works best to hold door at angle that door is when in broiler position. Once you have them started evenly, you should be able to fully slide down back onto both hinges.
4. If one of the hinges no longer has spring tension you have to reattach the spring. You can usually access spring if needed by removing the bottom drawer.
If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up.
If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. I recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.
Try opening the the door a few inches and lift it straight up. Then push it straight down. It should slide on the hinges up and down. You need to seat the door properly on the hinges. Don't be afraid to man handle it but, be careful the oven may tip if it's free standing. Good luck. Please rate me so I know if I helped. Thanks.
LOOK WHERE THE HINGE METS THE OVEN DOOR FACING..you will see on the hinge a tab with the door open pull these forward this will lock the hinges do this on both sides then closed the door slightly and lift up the door will come off then you can unscrew the bottom scres to access glass
It is possible that the lever has been bent somehow. If you can lift the top of the oven as if you were cleaning it. look at the lever mechanism, move it to the other position and push it back carefully, to bend it back. I have seen this happen a lot, people lean on the oven, the lever is in the open position and it is pushed a little bending it so when it is moved to close it doesn't go far enough to release it. I am assuming you have waited for the oven to cool down before you tried this first right?
