The hinges control the rate that the oven door opens and closes, and allows the door to stay open at an angle. This hinge can be used on either the left or right hand side of your oven, and is approximately 20 1/2 inches long. If your oven door will not open or close easily, you may need to replace this part. It may be a good idea to replace both hinges at the same time. If a spring has become loose on one hinge, the other hinge is likely to have the same issue. The repair is simple and only requires a Phillips screwdriver and a small bent nail. For a full step-by-step guide, check out the video below.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I removed the control panel to replace the electronic clock and and was very simple. Remove the screws beneath the assembly, then lift if off the flange at the top. If you have a cabinet door above, you may need to remove the door to provide enough space to lift up and remove the assembly from the flange. The other posts really helped in understanding how to remove the old clock assembly - only word of caution concerns the removal of the black electronic contact wire strip - you need to lift up on two small tabs on each side and it slips out easily.The over door hinge assebly is described well in prior posts and is very simple. If you are replacing your hinges, just do all of them as I found they were all suffering from fatigue. Remember to place a small nail in the hole in the hinge to prevent the old hinge from snapping when you remove it. When you inspect you new hinge, you'll see they've placed a temporary piece in the hinge assembly so you can slide it into the holder on a slight angle. Then replace the screw and backet that holds the hinge in place. When complete, open the oven fully and remove the small metal piece so the hinge can close completely.One post mentioned the need to replace the hinge post on the side of the oven that holds the hinge in place on the oven. I opted not to do this and the new hinges work perfectly without getting involved in removing this part.I found this entire experience easy and efficient - for just over $200, we have a control display that we can see and two oven doors that open and close easily!

The door came off easily after I removed the two hinge covers that are attached to the oven. Taking the door off can be done with one person but ideally two. The new parts fit in perfectly and the hinge pin used for shipping comes out easiest with a pair or wire cutters (you do not cut it just grab it and pull).After that, re-assemble the door and drop in place. It was a snap.FYI...the shipping was ultra fast and the price was great.No issues whatsover with the entire process.
Took the door apart and replaced the hinge, very easy
