Hi Jas,

That model number isn't pulling up as good, please recheck it.

Also please make a video of the problem your having, then upload the video to Youtube and post the Youtube link here. Or share your video per Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive and post the share link here.

I’ll try the OneDrive when I get home tomorrow. But unless I’m reading the model number wrong, that’s it. I took a picture of it to be sure. I’ll include that in the video. Thanks.

Thanks Jas I see the model number in your video and I corrected it for you in your first post.:)

Yes, your door hinges are worn out and its not closing properly.

Here's the oven door hinges for your model(order 2):

Got the parts in....got the glass off. Do I need to pull this out to access the sides to get the spring arms completely off? It’s a model that’s recessed into a cabinet.

Yes Jas, you will likely need to pull the oven out a little bit to replace the oven door hinges.

You will likely need to remove both side trims first.

Here's the parts diagram for your model:

The side trims are #1.

Thanks. We figured it out. Didn’t actually have to remove it at all. Once I put the pins in place, to hold the springs....it slid right out. Appreciate all the help. It’s working like new.
