Whirlpool range model #GR673LXSQ1 - took oven door apart to clean oven glass. Now cannot get it assembled as originally. Found diagram at appliance repair site of exact door but when assembled door wiil not fit properly and front of door (the part we see on the outside of the front) is not seated properly and I can see the "inside" of this glass pane with it aluminum tape. It appears to be assembled backwards but parts do not seem to fit any other way. HELP!
Type of Appliance: Oven & RangeWhat have you tried so far?: Everything!
Hello, My name isXXXXX have been an appliance tech for more than 15 years and I will be helping you today.There is no way to put this door together wrong..Unless you put something upside down but I dont think you can. We get allot of service calls because people see foil tape. There really is nothing we can do. I'm sure its together correct.
I am sorry but the door appears to be improperly seated. There should not be the gap I see between the inner frame and the outside door front. Additionally, the door will not close properly when rehung. The screws that hold the door pieces together also will not screw back in. They are not stripped and the are properly aligned in the holes on the frame and the hinges. Is there any way you can send me a written step-by-step set of assembly instructions as I have no doubt something is not going together in the proper sequence? There is always the chance that the schematic I have is not quite right as I have read some posts on other sites that the owner deviated a bit from the instructions and the door went back together properly. Ialso not see or knowhow thefour glass clips on the side of the inner frame fit against the outside of the door (the part that we see when looking at the range). They must hold something but how?
I am going to opt out. I can not visualize where every part goes without the door in front of me. Someone else will pick this question up please stand by....
OK. Understand as I am a chemistry technologist and repair with tech help instruments worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Sometimes you just need the instrument in front of you. I got my schematic from www.appliancepros.com I am sure I did it correctly but then the door should fit and it does not. The four side (two on each side) glass clips have me confused as I do not see how they function, i.e., that they hold in place.
The four clips go on the edge of the door liner which is the inside panel of the door. If you look at the diagram its part #4 Where they show the clip #15 it is pointing to where they go.The arrow shows it kinda in the middle but one goes on the bottom and one on top.I believe there is a notch where they go. The plastic trim on the side sits against them when installed.
Also this door when installed does not sit straight! When looking from the side the top sits out more than the bottom. The reason for this is so when the self clean lock engages it has room to pull the door locked.
I think the only way I can solve this mess is to call service to come to the house. The door when assembled as it is now will not close properly. It is not that the door sits out further at the top than the bottom. It clearly cannot close at all. We adjusted the hinges with no luck. If it helps, my husband agrees with me - it is as if the door is upside down but I know that it cannot be and so does he as he helped me last night install the pieces in all possible configurations. I can clearly see where the side glass clips go but since they are "hooked" on the inside, it appears as if they function to clip something in place. Since they are called glass clips, it would make sense that they hold the front glass plate somehow. Clearly, if you could see what I see and knew what the door should look like, I have something not configured the way the manufacturer would like. So unless you can direct me to some step-by-step pictures or written instructions, I will have no recourse but to bite the bullet and call my serviceman. Thank you.
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X look forward to helping you! The service manual may help you. It is available below. Let me know if it helps.Service Manual <----- CLICK HERE FOR THE MANUAL
The link will not work. The file has been trying to load for an hour - no luck. And I do have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat.
Try holding the CTRL key when you click the link. I just tried it and it downloaded fine.
I tried your trick four times - no luck again. It is late and I am a very busy wife and mother with a partially disabled husband. I am tired and must work a double shift tomorrow starting at 0700. It is clearly intended that I not be able to put this door together without service. I have no doubt that the service manual would be a help but I simply have no time to keep playing. I also have no doubt that your are a very capable and knowlegeable technician. I appreciate your attempts to help but it seems I have posed the $64,000 question. I must stop this now and take care of the rest of my jobs so I can get some much needed sleep. Thank you!
I understand, thank you.
