I have a whirlpool double oven model number RBD305PDQ12. The upper oven latch assembly is loose and when I shut the door the oven light will not turn off. Is there anyway to get up in there to see if something needs to be tightened up?
To access the latch assembly you will need to remove the control panel. To do this you will disconnect power to the double oven. Open the lower oven door. Remove the bottom screw from each of the 2 side trim pieces. To remove the side trim, pull the bottom out approximately 2", and slide the top down to free it from the control panel. Remove the screws from the side of the oven control panel. To remove the oven control panel, pull it out at the bottom and lift and unhook it from the oven cabinet support at the top. Disconnect the wire connectors from the control board and set the panel face down on a padded surface to protect the finish. Open the upper oven door and remove the 2 front mounting screws from the upper air vent. Remove the wires from the terminals of the solenoid and the 2 switches. Remove the two top screws from the upper oven door latch assembly and remove the assembly.

My Whirlpool oven has a broken hinge latch and I cannot remove the door. The hinge is OK. Only the latch is broken. I need to remove the door to replace a broken inner glass. How can the door be removed with a broken hinge latch?
Answer Hello Larry,
When this occurs, I clamp my small vice grips on the hinge so it cannot pivot back into the assembly. Be aware that you definitely shouldn't clamp onto the double part of the hinge, but on the single part only. This will avoid bending the hinge is such a way that the door hinge would have to be replaced for the door to ever close properly.
The original question was how to replace bottom oven latch and light switch assy. Received an answer but it sounds like the reply was to replace the top latch in a double oven or the latch in a single oven. Keep in mind that this is a double oven I am dealing with. As soon as I know how to take the oven apart I will order the part. Any help will be greatly appreciated. This is in reference to the last posting by Harry.
