I have an old magic chef oven that the left side door hinge or spring broke. It is my understanding that this part is no longer available, do you know what parts are compatible?
Answer Hello Donna! Unfortunately, this item has been discontinued with no further replacements or cross references available and our company is unaware of any other available sources. Sorry about that!
Serial number on the oven is: xp3801133
It seems the oven door hinges may need replacement as the door lowers down so far it actually rests on the lower part of the oven. I'm told it should come to rest slightly above, not below, horizontal. Is this correct?
If so, it seems new hinges are needed. But how do I tell which of the many different part number, or numbers if sold individually, do I need? Thanks.
Answer James, You're correct, the oven door should not go past horizontal / 90 dgrs. The first thing to check is the oven front frame 9759060 , in the area where the hinges insert into the frame, make sure the hinge area is not "bowed" or bent. Then, replace both the hinge receivers and the hinges, You'll need to slide the oven out of the cabinet. The parts you will need are : Receivers 4455605 4455606 and Hinges 9760577 (R) 9760578 (L). Good Luck and Thanks
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
Is part #AP3851093 a left side hinge?
Answer Hello Tom. No, 9760578 is the left side hinge for the stainless model you provided. Hope this helps.
