No problem. I'm just pulling the details of your oven up now. Whilst I do that are you able to attach a picture so I can see exactly whats going on

Perfect I'll open them now

Ok, you need to manually push the hinges down and then flick the little metal tab over and it will hold the hinges in place for you to refit the door. Ive attached a link to a photo so that you can hopefully see the metal tab that I mean. Be careful these hinges are spring loaded and powerful I normally use a pair of pliers to force them down.

I'll see if I can find a video or something to help give you a better visual guide

This is a different fitment style to yours but the tabs I was telling you about he calls levers

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

They are really tight to get moving but I assure you they do. I can't do it by hand alone which is why I use pliers as a lever. The tabs will only move and lock into place once you have managed to pull the hinges down

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

Yeh Its the metal piece that is pointing up that needs to move down. It just pivots and travels the same way as if the door was attached to it. Its just much easier to do when the door is attached as it acts as a lever. If you have something strong enough you could put over it to use as a lever like a pipe it would open move down easily

I think that I am going to have to call for an engineer to come snd repair the problem.

Oh no. Once you get that hinge down its really straight forward. But it is difficult to get it down and it can feel like you're going to break it but you won't

I've found a video of your exact hinges now. I hope this helps you

I have tried eveything you have told me and nothing seems to work it could be becsuse the hinges are special as the door is self closing.
I promise you it’s not but if you’re struggling maybe best to call someone in. As I say once you’ve managed to get the hinges out of their upright position it’s straight forward
