Pull oven door open about a couple of inches. Grab the door by the sides and pull up to remove from the hinges. Set it aside. Remove the storage drawer under the oven. This gives you access to the tension spring attached to the hinge. Detach it by hand. Using a phillips head, unscrew and remove the damaged hinge. Replace the new hinge. Reattach the spring. Replace the storage drawer. Replace the oven door. Done.
Before removing screws, I reached in and felt for where the upper end of the spring attached to the hinge. There are three holes in the end of the hinge arm, so I wanted to be sure of which hole to use. (The holes are very close together, so if the spring falls out before you determine which hole it was in, it probably won't matter so long as you are sure to use the same hole on both new hinges.) I then removed three Phillips screws per hinge. Once the hinge was loose, I could wiggle it around and release enough of the spring tension to slip the top end of the spring out of the hole on the hinge arm. Then I pulled out the old hinge and inserted the new one and replaced the three screws. Without the tension, the lower end of the spring fell out of the little hole in the oven bottom where it normally attaches. Our gas oven has a broiler rather than a storage drawer, so it was a little difficult to get the lower tip of the spring back into that hole. It actually ended up being easier to get the lower tip of the spring back into that hole first, before trying to reattach it to the hinge arm. Once I got the lower end into that hole, I pulled up on the spring and maintained upward pressure on the spring while I fiddled around to get the upper end into the hinge arm hole. Took about 20 minutes, door works perfectly now. Lots of sharp edges inside the oven, so had to be careful.
Removed old hinges and installed new hinges.Hardest part was determining that worn hinges were the cause of problem, then ordering replacements. GE website hinge on exploded view did not look like hinges I removed.Thanks to Google I got on to PartSelect.com website where excellent pictures of hinges and one-inch grid confirmed they sold exactly what I wanted for my 13-year old range, the model number of which was not even on the GE website.
The handle on the door was the hardes part of the fix. Took 20 minutes,Pull the door up & off,remove 3 screws from the top & 3 from the bottom. take the back panel off & remove 2 nutdrive screws fom the handle & replace with new handle. SIMPLE. With door off & broiler door open unscrew hinge & reach in broiler right side and remove spring by lefting straigh up on spring. Very easy too do. Replace with new hinge 3 screws. Put spring back on & fill with hand for holes. There are 3 holes in spring plate. It'S easy,10 minutes & your done
Real simple. Disengaged springs at the inside bottom, replaced hinges and reengaged springs.
The repair went surprisingly well! My only problem was the bottom screws needed WD40 to loosen, but otherwise the parts went in easily.
I followed the instructions of a PartSelect.com customer that was posted on the website. The instructions were great and the repair only took 15 mins. Before I found the PartSelect website I called the dealer who we bought the stove from and they wanted $ 250 for the repair. I went on the PartSelect Website and received the parts within 2 days.Total cost $ 59.65 thru PartSelect. Thanks PartSelect--Great service and Great website
Removed the door. Unscrewed the hinge from front of oven. Took broiler drawer out. Unhooked the spring. Removed hinge. Screwed new hinge in. Rehooked the spring. Slid oven door back on hinges. Mission accomplished. Oven door works like a champ. Wife happy.
Remove oven door from hinges, by pulling it straight up and off, (like you would do for closer access to clean inside). Remove the storage drawer. Lift up and away off the track, (like a file cabinet drawer). With the drawer out and away, you can see how the springs are easily detached from each hinge. Note the location of where the springs attach to the hinges, and bottom of stove. Remove each spring. Three screws on each side hold the hinges on. Unscrew, and set them aside. (The new hinges did not have new screws in package.) Place new hinge in place. Reinstall in reverse of disassembly. If any part of the door or face of the stove (where hinges mount) was bent slightly due to forcing door open, reform with light hammer taps and C-clamps. Enjoy for ANOTHER 10+ years, because it's a GE Profile Stove : )
first open oven door a couple inches and slide door up off hinges, then removed storage drawer to gain access to hinge spring, remove hinge spring with pliers noting which hole spring was attached in.then remove three screws from hinge and installed new hinge put three screws in attached spring back and put storage drawer in and oven door back on.
I tapped the screwdriver with a hammer lightly on each of three screws to loosen them. I checked to see the position of the spring on the hinge. I then removed the hinge, put on the new hinge and placed the spring in the exact same position. The door works very good. The hinge replacement was a no-brainer.
It was extremely simple! I removed the oven door and the storage drawer, unhooked the spring, and unscrewed the hinges. Removed the broken hinges and screwed in the new hinges, hooked the springs back on, slid the oven door back on and replaced the storage drawer! Presto! The repair is complete
Easy Repair. Remove the storage draw under the oven. It lifts out. Lift oven door off of hinges. Remove 3 screws & unhook the spring. Reverse the procedure with the new hinge. Good as new.
I removed the door by pulling it up (according to the instructions). Than took a philips screwdriver andremoved the three screws in each hinge, unhooked the springsand slid the old hinges out of the slots. The new hinges slid into the slots perfectly so the screwswere installed, the springs rehooked and the door installed. Real simple.
