Have a new door hinge and got the door off but how do you remove replace the hinge - do you have to separate the door and if so any tips on how to do it without breaking the lugs?
All that has been said,has not rave-lance to the Simpson Colombo stove.
Nothing was broken.
After leaning on the stove door and cleaning the inside I noticed the door sagged sightly to the right, when I had finished.
When trying to even this up the hole door came out off it's seating.
The side that had sagged I noticed of of the little clip things was not in place and had not been in place for quite some time.
This clip was united with the bit above which I think is the locking arm and spring of the hole door.
It's these two small clips that stop me from closing the door.
(I think some how they have two purposes,one had been mentioned above the other I'm not sure).
Or once the door is seated in place on the stove are these clips things pushed of some how.
If so how?.
As these two clips are holding in the door hinges and the spring thing pull's against them?.
Same problem here. all say split 2 halfs but no one is saying how to split without breaking
Yes u do have 2 split the door undo the screws and simply seperate the 2 halves and the 2 lugs that hold the hinge lift off get a small probe to push the broken lugs out of the fittings insert the new hinge put the 2 halves back 2gether screw the screws back up and remount the door 2 the cabinet jobs a gooden good luck
Chances are the panels separate as shown in the photo I have attached below.
Panel replacement can usually be done without removing the door from the microwave.
In cases where it is felt that door removal is necessary, I recommend detaching the door from the hinges.
I generally do not advise removing the hinges from the microwave.
Whenever the hinges are removed, great care must be taken to put them back in the very same position they were in.
Failure to do so can cause microwave leakage, which can cause risk of skin burns, fire, and disruption nearby electronic devices.
By the way, where did you get the part? I'm trying to find a good Goldstar / LG source to recommend.
