If it is the same as the Zanussi ZBF 660 X then to remove or re-attache the door:

Not sure if you still need to get your oven door off still but I have the same oven and have spent the last several hours trying to remove it and searching the web to discover how to remove it until I have just discovered a wonderful video tutorial on YouTube
that discribes exactly how to do it (just copy and paste it into your address bar.
It is the fourth and final instruction in the video but it really is easy.
The hinge is a latching over system type that folds back into the glass apparently.
Just get a screwdriver and where the end of the hinge dissappears into the housing of the oven just flick up the hinge with the screwdriver and the locking mechanism folds back towards you and the glass.
Once both are done just jiggle and pull up the door and it will remove easily....godsend!

What replacement parts should I order to keep my Kenmore oven door from just dropping down when it is opened?

If the hinge is not broken "Check the Springs".
They sometimes come off at one end or can be broken.
There are 2 one on each hinge. They are strong so be VERY careful.
As I remember they have a color code according to how strong that are according to the weight of the oven door.
The surest way is to get the MODEL NUMBER from the tag on your oven. The parts store will be able to look up the proper replacement.
I may be able to tell you more with a model number for Identification, the oven is likely a Whirlpool Product made for Kenmore. Let me know if you are in New York City area.
Hope this helps.

Putting door back on but hinge wont release to put back on

Hi Susan, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble putting the door back on your Frigidaire wall oven. Without knowing exactly how you removed the door I cannot say with certainty how to reattach the door. However, when removing the door did you pull up the lock located on both hinge supports and engage it in the hinge lever hooks? You might have had to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully over the hinge lever hooks. Then grab the door by the sides and pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports. If so, then to reattached the door grab the door by the sides; place the hinge supports in the hinge slots. Open the door to the fully opened position. Disengage the lock from the hinge lever hooks on both sides. Make sure the hinge supports are fully engaged before unlocking the hinge levers. Then close the oven door. There are instructions with images to remove and replace the oven door in the owner's manual. I hope this information proves helpful for you.

How do I remove the oven door


Welcome to FixYa.

Most if not all Thermador owners manuals have this outlined in them, however, here you go.

Removing the Oven Door

  • Fully open the oven door.
  • Raise the U-clip over the hook on each of the hinges to the "locked" position (see illustration below). This will prevent the hinge from snapping closed when the door is removed.
  • Grasp the door by the sides toward the back. Raise the front of the door several inches (there will be some spring resistance to overcome because of the hinge being locked). When the front of the door is high enough, you will be able to lift the hinges to clear the indents.
  • Pull the hinges out of the slots in the oven front frame.

To Replace the Oven Door

  • Grasp the sides of the door at the center and insert the ends of the hinges into the slots in the oven front frame as far as they will go (see illustration below).
  • With the door open all the way, lower the two locking clips.
  • Raise the oven door and make sure that it fits evenly with the front sides.


**CAUTION** With the door off, never release the levers and try to close the hinges. Without the weight of the door, the powerful springs will snap the hinges closed with great force.

Let me know how you make out or if anything is unclear. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Good Luck,

Macmarkus :)

Whilpool Double Electric Oven has NO POWER

I had the same problem the first time I used the cleaning cycle. The oven was under warranty when it occurred so I watched the repairman when he fixed it. He not only installed a larger fan, but he had to replace a thermocouple that is on the back of the oven, part number 4450934. The oven seems to die (lose power) after every cleaning cycle. I'm now ordering my third thermocouple. To replace the part, you have to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back. To do that, open the oven door. (If your door is locked because of the cleaning cycle, you may have to take a hacksaw blade to slip it in to see if you can trip the latch. The repair man was lucky when he did mine as the door clicked open when he was just messing with it so I don't know any trick to get it unlocked. He said that because the thermocouple died, it didn't provide the signal to unlatch the door, so the oven thinks it's still at 500 degrees and keeps the door locked which is part of the safety process). If you do get the door open, on the sides of the oven itself, at the bottom inside hinge of the door, you will see a screw holding the molding (frames the side of the opening of the stove). Remove each screw (left side and right side at the bottom) and pull the molding off. You now have access to the screws that hold the oven to the cabinet that it is sitting in. Remove those screws (mine has one on each side) and you can then slide the oven out. It's heavy so you will need help or have some thing you can slide it on to. It needs to come out far enough so you can access the back. You will see the thermocouple on the back, held on with two screws. Remove the wires and take the part off and throw it away (or keep it so you know what to order again next time as you will be replacing it again after you do another cleaning cycle) GREAT WHIRLPOOL PRODUCT. Reverse the process and you will be baking in no time.

Replacing the oven door

I just fixed this. Rest the bottom of the door on a rug and push the long arm down by foot, as it is spring loaded it needs a lot of force. Once it is down slip the catch of the smaller arm on to the hook. Both sides will now be the same and you insert the door gently into the oven. Hope this helps.
