it was abit difficult to remove the rusted hinge because of rust, but after getting it out and securing the new one, I realize I had an even bigger problem. The new hinge was closed and the spring was very tight.After a closer look at the other side of the oven door where the hinge was intact, I saw a hole in the hinge when it was opened. So I opened the new hinge by pulling it open and exposing the hole, put a pin in the hole.I then put the hinge in position and put in the screws.But now the door wouldn't go into position. I then had to put pins on both hinges and slide them in at the same time,locking them into place.This was the first time i ever took out an oven door or attempted any stove repair.
