Hotpoint BD 31 Cooker door

I am replacing the tired sealant on the external glass door.
Rather than apply the sealant to the hinges in situ, I want to remove the door assembly and repair it while flat. I am not sure how to remove the door - can you help?

The doors are easy to remove if you know how.!
Where the hinge enters the door itself, there is a little catch which can be turned with a flat screwdriver.
By doing so you prevent the hinge from moving into the door.
Do this on both sides.
Then allow the door to move towards the closed position.
About 3/4 of the way to closing, grasp the door at each side, firmly, and move it from side to side gently.
The hinges will begin to dislodge from the oven frame.
The door will be free to remove and be worked on.
The sealant which holds the glass door to the hinges, needs to be a silicone that is heat resistent.
Silcoset 158 Silicone Adhesive Sealant in a 75ml tube has done the job for me - other brands are available online - but make sure they are heat resistent to 300C

How do i take the door off to clean it


To take the door off you have to remove inner glass panels from both doors. Then remove the appliance from the housing unit. When the unit is out, you then have to unscrew the top panel and both side panels and lift them clear.
With the door closed, support it with one hand as you carefully unhook the large springs from the door hinge arms. The door frame can now be removed.
The above is from the handbook. You can actually remove the outer glass panel as well but personally would just slide the inner glass panel out and clean the door in situ.

Yesterday I cleaned my inside glass of my cooker (moffat94971100) The sealant popped and I have a loose glass. I have found sealant however how do I get the door off and weigh down the glass is there any...


Hi.

Normally there is a clip on both door hinges to allow easy door removal.

Once door is removed place on a towel on a flat surface. You will find a couple of screws on the top of the door and possibly underneath. Unscrew these and the two halves of the door should come appart. The inner glass is held in place with high temperatute oven sealant. You will need to thoroughly scrape the old sealant from inside inner door and on glass.

Apply sealant bead to inner door (but not too close to the edge) and then gently lower the cleaned glass on to the sealant. Press down gently. Now the sealant must have 24hrs to completely set so place a towel over the glass and place some heavy objects on the towel. House bricks are good if you have any.

Once dry you can then screw both door panels together and refit oven door.

The inner glass for a Zanussi oven is missing. Is it possible to have this replaced?


Hi,

Has the inner glass come away from the metal inner door?

If yes, then there are two ways to do this.
The first is to buy a new inner door and fit it to your outer door.
The second is to get a tube of high temperature sealant and repair the existing door.
To repair it you'd have to take the door off the oven and take it apart. Easier than it sounds.
Once the door is off and taken apart, it's a case of take the glass off, clean the glass and the metal, apply the sealant, place the glass on top and then put a weight on it for 24 hours to set.
Then rebuild the door and refit it to the appliance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Resealing Inner Oven Glass


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

How do I replace the inner glass on the oven door? I have taken the door off and it is apart, but the glass assembly looks to be one piece. How do I remove just the inner glass for replacement? JenW30400W


moz-screenshot-7.jpgmoz-screenshot-8.jpgTo replace the door glass do the following:
0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it.
1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door.
2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel.
3Removethe inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly.
4 the frame will be free now,
5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place.
6 Replace the inner glass.
7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back
