Whirlpool model # RF386PXGQ2 super capacity-465 accubake. system. Bought in year 2000. When cleaning, the outer white glass door fell out & shattered, side trim was defective... I have ordered the white glass door AP3886532 and the oven door kit AP3175983 is this the needed trim kit?
Do I need to also order the screw AP5617640 ? I have read some reviews that say the screw is not needed now.
Also, How do I remove the oven door from the oven to place it on the floor?... Deb
Answer Hello Deb. Per the manufacturer, the kit you ordered is correct. As for the screws, NOTE: This part has been redesigned by the manufacturer. The lower screws are no longer used and the side trim now locks into the lower trim with the dimples on the lower end of the side trim. To change 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 replaced the door glass, you will reinstall the oven door back onto the range in reverse order of the way you removed it.
Having a little problem installing new side trims and outer glass on my oven door. Do you have any detailed schematic's or a few lines of how to? Greatly appreciated .
Answer Hello Don. 1. Turn off the electrical supply to the range. 2. Remove the oven door and position it on a protected floor with... more the handle and outer door glass facing up. 3. Raise the top of the door and remove the two screws that secure the top of the door trim and the handle to the door liner, then remove the handle and top trim. 4. Slide the outer door glass out of the bottom trim channel and install the new glass in its place. 5. Install the top trim and handle on the oven door and secure them in place with their two mounting screws. REASSEMBLY NOTE: The side trim on Whirlpool oven doors fits under the top edge of the outer door glass, and the side trim on Roper models fits over the top edge of the glass. Make sure that the trim is seated properly when you tighten the screws .6. Reinstall the oven door on the range." *** NOTE The new trim kit side rails will have plastic divots on the end, These divots will fit into the two farthest out screw holes in the bottom trim strip, and you will not use the two screws that mounted the original side trims to the bottom trim ***
