Is it possible to re-assemble the bottom and side door trim without removing the door.
While it is possible to replace the side and bottom trim without removing the door, it would be a bigger task then it would be to take the door off the unit to replace. The reason for this is mainly due to the door glass. By leaving the door on there would be more of a risk to break the glass. You can easily remove the door by opening the door completely and using the door removal pin kit 814381. You could also use a nail or screwdriver and insert it into the hole on the hinges then close the door. Once the door stops against the stop then you would give a little push and lift out.
Replaced the exterior oven door glass. Can't figure out how to put the side trim back. Is ther a picture?
Answer Dave, The APP parts diagram, is a pretty good facsimile,but here are the written instructions from the manual " 1. Turn off the electrical supply to the range. 2. Remove the oven door, and position it on a protected floor with 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." Another note, if you purchased new side trim rails 8523173 the screw holes in the new trim have been removed and replaced with "dowels" The dowels will be installed in the screw openings in the bottom trim rail 8523178. Thanks and Good Luck
