Can't get oven door hinges to go back on stud (2 each side)to mount oven door back onto stove. Does hinge go over top stud first or last. Tried both ways. Just won't go back on. Any suggestions would sure help. The door lifted off very easily by accident!
ANSWER Hi Jim. Carefully use a pair of vise- grip pliers to cock each door hinge open and then make sure there is a steel nail inserts in the hinge aligning holes to keep it locked open. Then the door hinges need to be equally lifted and (gently) held up in place with your knee. Then put the hinge all the way on the top of the receiver hinge cross pins. It may at this point take a careful knee support and a gentle rock in place. This will allow the door hinge to be placed down onto the inner cross pins. Once in place, open the door fully. Remove the steel nails. Then cycle the door open and closed a couple of times to insure correct operation. Thank You.
