SOURCE: Kitchenaid Microwave torsion spring replacement

I just replaced torsion spring 4452396 on my microwave. We heard a "pop" and then the door got heavy. here are a couple things I learned...THE HARD WAY!
We had the stainless steel front to the door and needed spring 4452396, not 4451008. The stainless steel door is heavier so therefore a stiffer spring. I'm not sure i could justify the 4x cost in the part...but that's just the way it is. It's a bit of a pain to repair the thing..so it's worth it to get the correct spring. You don't wan to be doing this every couple of of months!
You have to remove the front panel of the door to access the springs. there are 2 of them...they cross each other in an "x" pattern on the lower part of the door. We had to pull the unit out a bit to get the spring in the hole for correct position. No need to remove the door etc. If you need help with this...email me.
My mistake was when I was trying to figure out how to gain access to the springs I assumed you did from the inside of the door. I removed the two black things you see on the lower right/left of the door (screw on the bottom of them) then proceeded to remove the two recessed screws on the inside top corners of the door. Well next thing i know.....CRASH! the whole front of the door fell off and shattered! Come to find out those screws and brackets on the bottom hold the face of the door on. The glass is intergrated into the color panel of the door..so it's one piece! 150.00 later and a new piece of glass/panel i learned a hard lesson.
Let me know if you need help...it's fairly easy to do now that I look back on it. dave dlacki@gmail.com

SOURCE: Oven door seems sprung as if a spring may be shot

You need to replace both oven door hinges, as the springs are weak, and there is no adjustment available.

Is there a way to fix what seems to be a sprung hinge?


If you are saying the door no longer returns to its upright position on it's own than the spring broke, the hinge is fine so long as it travels the same path.
Just google: "oven door spring XXXX" where the x's are your model number.

Microwave door will not latch closed


I just had this problem with a Samsung microwave/hood combo. I pried/popped the inside molding out with a screwdriver. The little lip that the spring attached to had broken. I drilled a hole in the center of the door latch, reattached the spring, replaced in door, replaced inside decorative molding, and fixed in 5 minutes. Thank goodness because it's such a pain to replace these units.

Kenmore 790.49073400 oven door won't close completely


Hello- You are on the right track. The hinge assemblies are 'sprung' or bent out of shape. Replacing them is pretty easy, so you can do it yourself. Four screws on each side. Be careful, these springs can snap closed and bite ya. Use the little pins that come with the new set to lock hinge so this doesn't happen. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

KEMC308 Microwave oven door


Had the same problem and bought the part online. It's not difficult to replace, simply hold the door by the handle as you loosen the 2 screws. Put the face of the door on the floor and remove 2 screws holding the plastic insert. You will have to remove the front vent panel (2 Screws) just below the microwave door.Then you might have to move the oven vent over to get to the final 2 screws on the bottom of the plastic panel. Once you have the palstic panel off the springs are exposed, simply look at how it is placed in the holder before you remove the damaged one. Replace and then re-assemle the door.
