This is your hinge The lock on the hinge should be on lock to either to take the door off

And to put the door back on

To use the door once its on the stove you unlock the hinge

i understand that , but what is happening is when i put the door in place it won't allow you to put the latch in the locked position/ it has to lift out of the groove it's in and it wont do that / maybe i am not putting the door brackets back in place correctly ?



Expert:  John replied 8 years ago.

You have to take the door off again and lock the hinge

Then put the door back on. Locked

Then unlock the locks

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

the door is off and the latches are in the postion that they had to be to take them off

i can not get the latch to move while the doors off as its in that little groove or lip whatever you call it


when i put the door on it does not seem to move either / how much force should i put on it (i have put no force on it at this point because i did not need force taking it off)


i am soo frustrated


thank you for trying to help me

If the locks are on then you should be able to insert the hinges back in the oven

Ant then unlock the clips

You wont hurt it to force it a bit

Thats how itgoes back on
