I bought hinge(487746), after removing the door with the hinges locked open (springs are now loaded) how do I safely get the hinges back to the closed position so that I can un-install them from the door. Based upon the assumption that to remove the old hinges from the door, they needs to be in the closed position at a right angle like a pistol -- true? thanks
Answer Michael, Here's some information : "REMOVING THE OVEN DOOR CAUTION: Be careful handling the oven door when removing it, as it is very heavy. Never lift the door by the handle. 1. Pull the oven out of its mounting location so that you can access the left and right hinge pocket covers. 2. Remove the screws from the left and right hinge pocket covers and remove the covers. 3. Remove the locking screw from each of
the hinges.4. Fully open the oven door5. Raise the U-clip over the hook on each of the hinges to lock them. This will prevent the hinge from snapping closed when the door is removed. 6. Grasp the oven door by the sides near the top, and carefully close it until the hook in the hinge contacts the hinge support (approximately 3/4 of the way). You will feel some spring resistance while you do this, which is normal.
7. Gently lean against the top of the door to hold it in position, and grasp the door firmly by the sides approximately 2/3 of the way down, then open the door slightly, and lift it until the hinges are free of the frame supports. Pull the hinges out of the oven slots and remove the door. REINSTALLING THE OVEN DOOR 1. Hold the oven door by the sides approximately 2/3 of the way down and insert the hinges into the oven slots near the top as far as possible.2. Lower the oven door to its fully open position. 3. Rotate the U-clips on the hinges forward
to the unlocked position. 4. Close the oven door. 5. Reinstall the two hinge locking screws. 6. Reinstall the hinge pocket covers."
I have a thermador double oven model CM3024S and I need a hinge assembly. My repairman says its not to be found, and my oven is only 9 years old. The part # I need is 488417 according to him. Your web site says there is a part # 487746 hinge for a CM302S. Is this the same hinge as mine and will it work? If not, how do I go about getting a hinge that will work? Thanking you in advance!
Answer Hello Lewis,
After extensive research, it appears that the part has been dis-continued and there is no satisfactory substitute. I would contact a local authorized dealership to see if they have been informed by Thermador of a part that will work in your application. The model number the tech looked up for you shows to be different and the parts do not show to cross, so I would find out from the manufacturer before paying shipping costs on a part that will not interchange.
I have model number SCD302TPS double oven my doors don't shut correctly. I have 30 inch doors. What hinge part number do I need. Also, my display stopped working. The oven works fine. Can I fix this myself? Thank you, Ray
Answer Hello Ray,
The door hinge 00414511 is listed for your model number so it should take care of your issue. As far as the display, you should check the low voltage transformer to insure it is sending power to the display. You should be able to do this with a helper, since the unit will have to be pulled out to access the internal components for testing and replacement.
