Question about Kenmore 47783 Electric Single Oven
My oven door just drops all the way down when it is opened. I need to know which parts may need replacing. Got any idea?
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You have a door hinge problem.
First, get your oven model number. It is located on a metal plate on the face of the oven after you open the door.
Go into your computer search engine and type in; "Video replacing oven door hinge". Several door hinge replacements will appear. Hopefully one for your oven.
Before observing the video remove the bottom panel on your oven. There is a spring pin on each side of the bottom panel on the top. With a thin kitchen spatula or putty knife inset and hold spring pin down and pull out the top of the panel, do the same on the other side. Then lift up. there is a slot and metal hook on the bottom of each side. Observe your hinges. Are both or only one of the hinges broken?
Now, go into the following website and put in your model number. Select parts, several diagrams with part numbers will appear. Be careful your may have a right and left hinge. Copy the hinge part number then search the internet for best price.

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.
