Question about Maytag MER5755QAS CleanDesign Electric Kitchen Range
TOOK DOOR OFF TO CLEAN OVEN NOW CANNOT GET DOOR BACK ON. THE HINGES ARE SPRING ACTION. WE OPENED HINGES BUT AS SOON AS WE START PUTTING IT ON TRYING TO HIT THE PINS, THE SPRING CLOSES. HOW DO WE INSTALL THIS.
I finally got my door back on, I had to wedge a butter knife in the hinge to keep it open, then I could put it back on the pins and slide the metal cover/locking thinge over it. Was a pain in the ass.

You can try putting vice grips behind the hinges to hold them open while you insert them.

Like ljleppington, I had to use two vise-grips to hold the hinges in THE FULLY OPEN POSITION. It just would not work (even with vise-grips) in the "broil" position.
It's the third time I had to repair the cheap, broken mounting for the door handle. Each previous time it was 'difficult' to re-mount the door. This time it was almost impossible -- until I saw the vise-grip solution here..

I have a Amana self clean oven/range. Wife cleand glass and cleaner got between glass. removed door and cleaned interior glass. put it together and couldn't get door back on. tried for 3hrs. then found out that it has built in spring locks with no f---ng instruction anywhere. When opening door pivot the built in stops to lock the spring open, reverse and pivot locks (when open) back. You're done. Amanna should included instructions. Id like to see the guy who wrote the manual. John

I can surely relate with this - what a NIGHTMARE!!! Even with all of the tips I found posted, nothing worked! I was successful in getting on side locked on, but the other just wouldn't cooperate. I tried the butter knife, the vice grips, and 2 shorty screwdrivers to no avail.
As John (above) explained, there are stop locks to keep the hinges from snapping closed. However, after an hour of fighting with the hinges, I did not have the hand strength to open them far enough to engage the lock. It's basically you against the springs at this point. I'm sure to have bruises on my palms from trying.
Much to my helper's horror (my 14yro daughter), I finally removed the door completely again, and set it on the carpet by my couch arm. I pushed the hinges to the open (broiler) position, leaned if far enough over on the couch arm that I could use my foot to pry the hinge open even farther to get it to the point that I could lock the hinge in place. From there, we set them in, opened the door to release the hinge lock, and pushed it up into the fully locked (onto the oven frame) position.
Then we high fived. VICTORY IS OURS!!! Nothing like spending all day just trying to get an oven door back on. Thankfully, I still have just enough strength to lift a frosty beverage of success. I think cleaning the racks will have to wait til another day.
Hope this helps someone else!
