There are 4 screws on the underside of the door, that once unscrewed allows the front
panel to come off. Then just below the handle, there is a bar with two screws that hold it on, one on each side of the door. Unscrewing these 2 screws and taking the bar off, gives you access to screw the handle back on.
Then put it all back together in the order you dismantled it...

The handle to the stove has fallen off. How do I fix it?


hello. Get an assistant. Open the door about 1/5 until it stays open. With the help of the assistant lift the door straight up and off of the hinges. Put the door upside down on some towels or other padding on a table. Use a screwdriver to remove all of the screws. Then lift inner panel off. Now you will see where the handle screws are. Put the handle back, screw it on, then replace the inner panel and screw it down. With the assistant slide the door back onto the hinges. Done!

4 thumbs up please. thanks. Joe

Oven door handle (right side)came loose


If you put the door at a 45 degree angle on the hinges, it will lift right off. Then once on the ground, it should be easy to remove the screws of the inner panel and expose the screws that the door handle attaches to.

My oven door shattered. i bought the glass and the outer trim. i need help installing it


This job is best done by two people, one to hold the glass in place, and the other to operate the screwdriver and position the handle and trim pieces.
The glass is held in place by the handle assembly at the top and a metal track at the bottom.  You remove the glass by removing the handle. Open the door part way until you have access to the back of the door.  The door handle is held in place by two screws on the back (the oven side).  Remove the screws, taking care to hold the handle in place.  Be sure to brace the glass, then slowly move the handle away from the door frame.  Remove the glass.  The side trim pieces will probably fall away from the door frame, although they will probably not fall all the way out.  My advice is to carefully remove them.  Be careful; they have tabs on the bottom edge that hold them in the door frame and these tabs are easily broken.  If yours are still in one piece you might just reuse them.
Remove the old glass panel and clear the bottom track of any debris.  Put the new glass panel in, beginning with the bottom track.  Set the oven handle on the top edge of the glass panel; there are tracks on the back of the handle assembly the top edge of the glass fits into.  Bring the handle toward the door frame, taking care not to let the glass panel slip out of the tracks.   The door handle has two collars that go through holes in the door frame.  Once you've got the collars through these holes, you can put the two screws back in that secure the handle to the door.
Take one of the side trim pieces.  Each trim piece has a narrow edge and a wide edge (like a capital "L"), The narrow edge faces the front and the wide edge faces the side of the door.  Each piece has a corner edge with a little tab sticking out.  These face down.  The opposite end of the trim piece has recessed edges. These slide under the edge of the door handle.  You want to insert this end first, then work your way along the length of the trim piece pushing the narrow edge between the door frame and the glass panel.  
Here's the tricky part.  To get the bottom in, the best thing to do is to open (or better yet remove altogether) the drawer beneath the oven to gain access to the screws that hold the bottom track of the glass panel to the door.  Loosen the screw that holds the track in on the same side as the trim piece you're working on; the screws are on the bottom of the track about 1 inch in from the edge. Loosen the screw slightly and pull down on that edge of the trim as you push the trim piece in behind the glass.  Repeat until the trim piece tab slips through the hole for it on the track.  Tighten the screw back in place.
Repeat this process for the other trim piece. If you're patient and gentle, it shouldn't be too difficult.  I just did this myself today (2/7/09).
Good luck.

Cleaning Oven Door Glass inside face


First take the two inside screws out, (found at the top of the door) they will pop out when you have both sides off so make sure to take them all the way out so you dont lose a washer or one of the screws. The handle is actually secured by these 2 screws and will come off of the door when you remove them.. your metal door can bend slightly in this process, so be careful. as soon as the handle and screws are off you can clean inside of the 2 pieces of glass, also a good time to clean off the opposite side of the door behind the handle. only take the 2 screws off no need to remove the full door. I used a magic eraser to remove the grease and then I cleaned the glass with glass cleaner. I used a small vice to secure the door when putting the handle back on, but you could have someone to hold the piece togeather for you too. (I have a frigidaire stainless steel model)

Cannot put stove door back on mclary model


Hi, i have a eurolec and had the same problem. For ours the door had to hinged pieces of metal on either side of the door. To get the door back on we pulled the longer of the two pieces of metal as far down as the spring would allow (took a lot of force) and jamed a bit of metal (we used some slef tapping screws that we had) in their to stop it moving back. This is done on both sides.
You simply slide the door into place and then move it to the completely open position. Pushing the door a little more open allows you to remove the pieces of metal to be removed and then the door operated correctly

How do I tighten the handle to the oven door, it has come loose and I can't see where I can access to tighten.


hi,

Remove the door from the oven, most doors you just open to the first stop point and lift up on the door, if yours doesn't let me know. Then, most doors have screws on the top and bottom, some also have them on the side, remove those screws and the front and back of the door will separate, the screws that hold the handle are in there. Remember to use caution with the glass when separating the door panels.

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!

Maytag electric range door handle (how to replace?)


The above solution is fine, but you don't have to remove the door.  Open the storage drawer for access to the trim screws (3) on the bottom of the door, remove the screws.  Have a helper hold the glass along the bottom. Take the three screws on the top of the door trim out.  Slide out the glass and put in a safe place.  Remove the four screws that hold the handle brackets in place, remove the handle (or tighten if loose). Install the new handle (one screw on each side).  Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly.  The entire job took less than 30 minutes.
