This kit comes with 2 door hinges, 2 brackets and 4 screws.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I replaced the door hinges and put a new handle on the oven door. I can not remember what was done exactly because I had a 2 and 4 yr old helping me. But I can tell you that the instructions included with the kit made the job easy. There were a few problems with the type of bit used to get the screws off (I needed a star type of bit, but used my phillips because that's what I had on hand). It worked fine, but it would have been better with the star tip screwdriver. There were helpfull hints that told me to prethread the new screws going into the oven door and frame. That was a big help instead of trying to hold the part and start the self threading screws. All in all I would order the parts again and attempt to do another repair on my oven, because it saved me a lot of money. Good luck to all the other first time repairers out there.

My problem with the door was a bit serious because not only would I lose heat from the top of the door, but could not use the convection oven unless the door closed tightly.However, the repair could not have gone easier. The instructions were very simple and totally accurate. I would suggest that anyone doing this job with a door that has full glass across the front should have a helper neaby. The door is quite heavy.This probably the easiest repair job I have ever done, and I have done many.
Removed the door and the inner panel of the door and replaced the hinges. Replaced the screws and put the oven door back on. It closes tight now just like new. I have now ordered the replacement cap so my oven looks like new again. I only have one suggestion to make the installation easier. If the manufacturer would prethread the holes in the new parts, it would save time from having to prethread the holes with the screws, prior to installing them.
Instructions couldn't be better or easier. As others have said pre-tap the holes and though it's not a must invest in a #1 square screwdriver bit. The perfect fit will save time on the job.
