The door on k.a. / whirlpool - hinge has a tab that locks rhe hinge and prevents the hinge spring from pulling door closed all the wayslightly lifting and continuing to close thw door lifts it off the hinge rest. Some models have set screws that need to be removed some require door disasembly some ge maytag frigidaire dcs wolf viking etc the door simply lifts off. The hinges stay attached to the app.and some have holes at the pivot of the hinge wherea 1/8 inch metal tabs or nails are inserted and door is ifted up and out....
(That is 1/3 of the job 2/3 is puting it back) lol
spring is broken on the side that is 'slacked' without return tension. may be necessary to get underneath the stove chassis. move away from wall, carefully disconnect the gas fitting after turning off the gas spigot. Pull away far enough from wall to 'tilt' the whole chassis rearward to access the underside. Technicians use a 'jack' to raise stove....
First thing is be careful them sprins are strong and will hurt your fingers bad if not careful. That said place both hinges in 1/3 open position they should stop there. if not put both all the way open then slide door back on and close. supposed to only lift off in 1/3 open position but whatever works.
what you have to do is get a couple of nails pull the hinge on the door down far enough to insert the nails in the holes and let it rest against the door this will hold the door at the proper angle to engage the hooks inside the hinge slots on the body of the range grasp the door on each side and insert the hinges in each side to engage the hooks then open the door all the way and remove the nails
tough but you need to open the door all the way stick a small screw in the hole on the side of the hinge that is still on then partially close the door this will alow for you to remove the door and then you can push open with your hand the other hinge and stick a screw in the hole on the side this will keep the hinge from closing on you then reinstall the door
