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.
I guess you worked this out already as posted a while ago....but for others like me I thought adding a solution might help..........Open the door fully and on the hinges there is a clasp, flick that back on itself on both hinges. Close the door carefully and it will stop half way....now lift the door off the hinges. Lay the front of the door on the floor and there are 4 screws on the bottom of the door...unscrew the middle 2 (the outter 2 attach the hinges). then lift off the back of the door....you now have the access you need!
Now i have done this I need to get the sealant....is there a shop you can get this from B
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.
If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
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.
