My oven door will not open completly and I know I must replace the two hinges but do I also need to replace the spring and if so how do I replace it.
If you are replacing the hinges of the unit then it would be a good idea to replace the springs as well. To change out the hinges you will need to remove the side panels of the unit. To do this you will start by removing the main top, the door and the drawer at the bottom. To remove the main top you will remove 2 to 3 screws in the door opening at the top and then lift the top off. To remove the door you will open at a 45 degree angle and lift it off the hinges. Once this is done and with the unit pulled out, you will remove the rear cover of the unit and take the screws out that hold the side panel in place. There will also be screws at the top that will need to be removed and a trim piece in the front. Once this is removed you will be able to remove the side panel and access the hinges.
I am installing an oven door hinge, left side. When I took the old hinge out of the range, the oven door spring spring came with it. My question is - how/where do I attach the "other" end of the spring. Do I have to remove any panels on the range? Thanks in advance for your help.
Answer Kenneth, You may have to remove the side panel. But try removing the storage drawer, first. There should be holes or a clip, to attach the end of the spring to the lower frame assembly. The hardest part will be attaching the spring to the openings in the hinge arm WB14X103, But it is doable. Good Luck and Thanks
