What is the complete model number off the tag on the unit?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Whirlpool Gold Accubake System combination wall oven & microwave. I don't see a tag with a model number. The hung is different than Google & YouTube search results. Must be too old.

The hinge is different)
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.

Are you sure you can not find the model number anywhere on the frame edge? Without it this will be really hard to say as I do not even know what it looks like

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can send you pictures
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.

OK that may help, but do you need a hinge? If so you would have to find the model as there are literally thousands

Oops, maybe I found it. Part No.(###) ###-####REV. B

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Yeah, maybe that is the part no of the metal label. The only other number is ***** the microwave: 8538(###) ###-####1 XNK2083687
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Since it's a wall oven, it probably needs to be yanked out of the wall to find the SN
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.

If you open the lower oven door look at the bottom frame edge there or even above as they are sometimes hard to see.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Not there. Here are some hinge pics attached.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.

Do you just need the part number for the hinges?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I need to know how to take off the door and replace the hinges.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.

You need to insert a small pin or screwdriver in each of the holes on the hinge with the door open then close the door slowly and it will lift off the frame and come off.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Nope. That didn't work. I will call a repairman.
