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.
Are oven door hinges $13.46 each and is there 1 or 2 hinge receptacles in the hinge receptale kit?
Answer Hello Hhcook. 74010546 is 1 door hinge. If you need both, you will need to order 2 hinges. Hope this helps.
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.
