I have preloaded the replacement hinge, but it appears that to remove the old hinge it must be unloaded. If that is true, how do you load the new hinge while it is on the door?

I didn't think the hinge was on the door, it is usually on the oven and the door just slips down on it, and the door becomes the lever to work the pressure of the hinge. Did you get the door off yet? Just open it to the first rest, and pull up on it, it should come right off, the spring loaded hinges are on the oven like a mousetrap. Don't get you fingers in the way. They are hard to open with no door in place, but it can be done. Slide the door back on the hinges, you should be all set. I hope this is what you got going there.

Hello. Typically, the hinge is attached to the frame of the oven opening and then opened 1/4 or so [preloaded]. J.

Ovens come in many varieties including freestanding units and stacked models that are inserted into a wall. Kitchen oven units that get a lot of use or are getting old may have problems develop, such as a loose or squeaky door which may require replacing the hinges. You can replace the hinges on the door to your oven by first removing the door from the rest of the oven.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Screwdriver
  1. Step 1 Open the oven door and examine the hinges to see how the they are secured to the door. Some oven doors slide into the hinge assembly or have a locking mechanism that secures the door to a latch on the main unit.
  2. Step 2 Remove the door from the oven by disengaging the locking mechanism and then pull the oven door out. You may need to release a catch on the door or remove a pin from a hole in the hinge.
  3. Step 3 Place the door on a flat surface such as a table or the floor.
  4. Step 4 Remove the screws that hold the sections of the door together to access the hinges.
  5. Step 5 Remove the hinges from the door. The hinges may be attached to the door with screws or they may be held in place when the door sections are tightened or secured.
  6. Step 6 Insert the new hinges into the door and secure them with the screwdriver or place the section of door back on. Tighten all of the screws securing the sections together.
  7. Step 7 Place the oven door back into place by sliding it on the same way that it came off.

Hello,

Follow the procedure below,

Open the oven door and grasp the sides with one hand on each side. Lift the door up to remove it from the hinges. Set the door out of the way.
Remove the range top by unscrewing the attaching bolt on the front door flange with a socket wrench. The screws are located in the upper corners, where the door closes.
Slide the top of the range forward about 6 inches from the control panel. Locate the wiring harness from the range top to the control panel. Disconnect it by pushing in on the plastic tab and pulling it apart. Grasp the top panel with both hands and lift it from the stove. Set it aside in a safe place.
Remove the screws on the rear edge of each side panel that connects the side to the rear of the stove. Also remove the screw on each end cap of the control with a screwdriver. Lift the side panel up, removing it from the key hole tabs on the front, and set to the side.
Remove the two hex head screws that attach the hinge to the front of the oven using a socket wrench. They are located above and below the hinge.
Install the new hinges by attaching them with the hex head screws.
Line up the side panel with the front panel key hole and set it in place. Attach the side panel to the rear of the stove with the attaching screws and reattach the console ends with a single screw on each side.
Place the top panel back on the oven. Connect the control panel wires to the range top by pushing the connector back together. Slide the top panel back into position.
Secure the top panel by reattaching the screws under the front flange. Open the ends of the hinges with your finger at about a 45 degree angle. Set the door in the hinges and close the door.
Reconnect the power to the range and slide the range back into its position.
Take care.

Replacing a door hinge. What is the procedure please


you need to send the model number,it's not the same on all models,but if your door slides up and off of the hinge,then remove the two screws that hold the hinge in place,
close the hinge and slide it down into the hole,then grab the back side of the hinge and pull it through the hole,slide the new hinge down into the hole,lift it up and open it and put the screws in,but before you put the hinge in get one of the screws and put it into the hole where it screws into,usually there's no threads there and you have to make them by putting the screw in,it's easier if you do this before you try to line up the hinge and then try to tap the hole with the screw,if you wet the screw and hole with water it helps alot,you don't want to use wd or anything,when it heats up it will smell.hope this helps you out if not send the model number.

Oven door won't quite close tightly. I can push it about another 1/4 inch to close it completely.


You need to replace the hinges in the door. Go online to a spares website and enter make and model and order new hinges. You can replace them by unhooking the door, just takes a little effort, you might need to flick back latch on hinge and lift out. Remove inner door panel, usually 4 screws and remove. then change hinges. The 2 big pieces are the hinges.

Doors don't shut all the way and light stays on


It sounds like your door hinges are worn, usually on older ovens due to weight of door. Most oven doors can be removed by simply raising the tabs/ fitting small screwdriver on both hinges(refer to user manual) etc. Once door is removed you can place a medium size screwdriver or similar in the hinge slot, pushing the hinge plate on the bottom in an outward direction, thereby bending this plate(very slightly) forward. This will make the door close fully, activating the door switch, and turning off the oven light. This is only a short term solution, as this hot air escaping can lead to further problems. Hinge pair will need replacing. Door hinges are spring loaded ALWAYS KEEP FINGERS AND HANDS CLEAR OF LOADED HINGES.

Last year, my 8 year old Whirlpool oven door would not stay closed all the way. I ordered new hinges, replaced them and it was great for 11 months. Still under warranty, I replaced them a second time......


Are you replacing the hinge guides as well? The hinge is usually only one half of the problem. When you remove the door, look into where the upper long arm of the hinge resided. You will see a little runner wheel. Touch it with a thin screw driver and see if the wheel feels loose. I'll bet at least one of them is!

Thermador oven (c301u) door hinges weak, how to install new hinge


This is a relatively easy fix however you will need to remove the door and it is heavy!

Start by opening the door completely and engage the small "locks" that are at the base of the hinge. This will ensure that the spring loaded hinges do not "spring open" when you remove the door. You then will need to remove the hinges from the door via a series of phillips head screws that hold the hinge assembly in place. The new hinges must be "preloaded" into the Open position using a vise or some means of holding the hinge in place while you use a small section of pipe to provide leverage needed to open the hinge so that the Locks can be engaged.

Once the new hinges are "pre-loaded" and the locks are engaged, you can reverse the procedure to re-install the hinges into the door and re-install the door.

Good luck!!

The hinges are commercially avaialble from Applianceparts.com
