Oven door won't close. Got new springs from appliance pros but no idea how to get the oven door off to make the repairs.
Answer Hello JPS. Open the door all the way. There is locking clips on the hinge you will need to pull upwards on and slide them forward to lock them into place. Then close the door until it stops. Next lift the door upward and off the unit.
When ordering the hinge, do both hinges come or only one?
Answer Craig, the door hinge comes one per package. Thanks.
I need a video on replacing the door to my range...Maytag mgr5775qdw. We ordered a oven ignitor and while replacing it the oven door came off and we can't seem to put it back.
If the hinge came out of the receptacle without the locking device in position then you will need to extend the hinge like the door is open and get the locking device in place. Once this is done it will be easier to get the door into position.
Trying to reconnect the hinge for the door. Having very difficult time. Only one hinge is off.
Answer Hello Michael. Make sure the lock for the hinge is in place and if so, you will insert it into the receiver and make sure it seats properly into the unit.
I cannot reinstall my oven door. I cannot get the latch to catch. It keeps springing back not allowing to reattach the door. If a video could be sent or a link to the video that would be great.
Answer Hello Derek,
Make sure the locks are pointing toward the door with the hinges in the fully opened position. Put the door hinges back into the slots and work up and down until they feel like they have caught on the recievers. Put the door in the fully opened position. The door should set there on the hinges like the door is just open. Flip the hinge locks toward the unit body and close the door. I'm sorry but a video hasn't been made on this subject that I could find.
When cooking a roast, I pulled out the roasting pan and grease and water spilled inside the door. How do I open the door to clean the glass front of the door, more than removing the 4 screws. Is there a spring inside that will dislodge?
Answer Hello Susan. To clean the glass in an oven door, you will need to determine how to remove the door on the model number you are working on. If you open the door to the first stopping point, some oven doors will lift off the unit in this position. On other models, you will see clips on the back of the hinge toward the opening where the hinge enters the range. If yours is like this, you will open the door all the way open, then pull the clips down until they stop and lock in place. Then close the door to the stopping point and lift the door off the range. If you door does not lift off, and it does not have the clips, then you will open the door all the way open. You will see a hole in the hinge at the bottom of the door. You will insert a pin or nail into that hole and close the door to the stopping point. Then you can lift the door off the unit. Once the door is removed, you will lay it on a soft surface and disassemble the door. Pay attention and make notes if needed for reassembly of the oven door. Once you have cleaned the door glass, you will reinstall the oven door back onto the range in reverse order of the way you removed it. No spring is going to come off when disassembling the unit.
Oven door opens too far and when closed it does not close completely.
Answer Hello Pat. From what your describing, you will need to replace the door hinges 74010546. The manufacture also recommends replacing the receptacle kit 12002578 as well. Hope this helps.
