I had the same problem today I found that you have to extend the hindge enough to have the lock tabs lock into the door to hold the hindge in the extend mode. If the tabs are not back in the door it will continue to snap back. After you lay the door in place be sure to extend the lock tabs back up into the oven side towards the pins that you hindge lay on.

    I was searching for this same solution. None of the advice helped much, just frustrated me. After breaking a thumb, I can tell you THIS IS THE SOLUTION!!!!!!

    FIRST AND FOREMOST!!!! KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE HINGES. Those springs are super loaded and will break your thumb. I know from experience. :( I am typing this one handed so this doesn't happen to anyone else!

    Before you take the oven door off, if you don't have LOCKS that keep hinges in place to keep keep reading.

    1. While the oven door is still on, look for little holes in the hinges. Get an Allen Key that fits those holes. Slide it in (get the biggest one that will fit) and make sure it won't pop out. AGAIN THOSE SPRINGS HURT LIKE HELL if it hits your thumb!

    2. Lift up (about 45 degree angle) and you're golden.
    If you're like me and forced the thing off and the hinges closed this will be a process. Again, FIRST AND FOREMOST!!!! KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE HINGES they hurt like hell!

    1. You have to figure out a way to safely extend the hinge to figure out what size Allen Key you will need.

    2. Make sure you have them all laid out. Those hinges are slippery and want to go right back in the door.

    3. Once you have found the biggest one that will fit. Somehow (i'll leave this to your imagination) figure out how to extend it and slide the allen key in. **I laid the door on carpet using a huge pair of pliers and massive screw driver to leverage the hinge out. I'm sure there's a better way***

    4. Repeat #3. for the second hinge

    5. Then line up the hinges and it's a cake walk. Once firmly in, you'll know because it will hold the door up, and extend the hinge the rest of the way.

    6. Slide out the allen keys and you're all set.

    You are now a PRO!

Range/Stove/ Oven Door Glass Replacement

I see many questions come up at about oven door glass that has broken and how to replace the glass. For many ovens it is a relatively simple task. It will take about an hour for most people, depending on the skill level, and the type of door.

To do this job you should have handy a screwdriver, usually a Philips head medium sized, a plastic tarp, especially if your glass in the door is already broken, and of course the new glass. It is also a good idea to measure the new piece of glass to make sure that it is close in size before taking the door apart.

For your safety, make sure that the power is turned off to the oven before starting this job also. The open the oven door and remove the screws on the inside face of the door. If the door can be remove easily you can remove it, but it is not necessary to do that. Make sure that you place the pieces of the door as they come off and the screws in a place to keep them organized for when you put everything back together.

For most ovens you will find the oven glass held in by tabs, similar to a picture frame. Pull the tabs back to release the glass. Carefully remove the old glass from the frame. If it is broken, be very careful not to cut yourself. Also contain the glass on the trap to make cleanup easier. For many newer ovens, you will have three layers of glass. Do the same process for each layer.

When the old glass is removed, then simply replace each layer of glass and press the tabs back in place for each one. Then replace the brackets or inside pieces of the door, and secure with the screws.

This is how easy it is to replace the glass for many of the ovens.

Another word about broken glass in ovens…..
Many of the people that have broken glass state that it broke after running the self-clean feature of their oven. For many of you this warning will be too late…but for those of you that see this before, be warned!

Putting door back on but hinge wont release to put back on

Hi Susan, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble putting the door back on your Frigidaire wall oven. Without knowing exactly how you removed the door I cannot say with certainty how to reattach the door. However, when removing the door did you pull up the lock located on both hinge supports and engage it in the hinge lever hooks? You might have had to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully over the hinge lever hooks. Then grab the door by the sides and pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports. If so, then to reattached the door grab the door by the sides; place the hinge supports in the hinge slots. Open the door to the fully opened position. Disengage the lock from the hinge lever hooks on both sides. Make sure the hinge supports are fully engaged before unlocking the hinge levers. Then close the oven door. There are instructions with images to remove and replace the oven door in the owner's manual. I hope this information proves helpful for you.

I have a Kenmore smooth cooktop electric range. It is about 3 years old. Recently i used the self clean function, and since then I can't get the oven door to unlock and I'm getting a F5 code on the read...


Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the oven. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. If the problem still persist,
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the oven back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the oven memory.

My oven displays error f31. It beeps and when I press clear the beeping stops. But if I try and set the temp it reverts back to f31

The F31 fault code indicates a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe. The temperature probe is secured in the top of the inside back wall of the oven. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power. Open the oven door and remove the racks. Remove the screws that secure the oven temperature sensor probe in the back wall of the oven. Carefully pull the sensor into the oven until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug. Unplug the sensor probe. Do not let the wire harness **** back through the opening in the back of the oven. Check the resistance of the probe with a volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, you should measure about 1100 ohms of resistance. Since you are getting the F31 fault code, you will not likely measure this resistance. If the resistance is bad, replacing the oven temperature sensor probe .This should fix your problem. You can order this part from the If the resistance of the temperature probe is normal (1100 ohms), then I recommend that you access the electronic oven control board in the console (with the range still unplugged ). Remove the upper back panel. Pull the P5 connector on the control board and measure the resistance through the purple wires (pins 12 and 13 as shown below) to check the resistance of the temperature probe through the circuit that connects to the board. If the resistance is drastically different than the 1100 ohms measured at the probe, then the wire harness is bad and will need to be replaced. If you measure the proper resistance through this wiring harness at the control board and the connections are good, then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

How to put oven door back on after removing!

Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.
