Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
I have the oven door off. When I tried to put the oven door back in place and the safety latch is stuck in place. I pulled down the hinge spring and tried to pry up the safety latch and have had no luck.
Can you help?
Hello, and thank you for using this service.Below is a video to a Fisher and Paykel oven door (yes I know that your oven is Kitchen Aid). But it shows you how I force the hinge open to move the locking tab. It works the same for your Kitchen Aid oven, so just watch and it should be very informative.CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO
I have seen the video. I have already tried this approach and then safety latch is stuck.
On side works fine, while the other is hung up. I tried prying on the safety latch while the hinge was in the open position, but it will not budge.
OK then either you need to replace your hinge because it has failed, or you can open the door up and get someone else to use pliers to try to force the safety latch over. Chance are it got bent from the door being taken off improperly.
