Just like some of the other parts on a GE stove -- the electric elements, the drip pans and the oven racks -- the oven door can also be removed. You may want to take off the oven door because you want to replace faulty hinges, or perhaps you want to thoroughly clean the door. Whatever the case, it can be done in a few steps.
Things You'll Need
- Small flat-blade screwdriver
Open the GE oven door all of the way so it is in a horizontal position.
Locate the left hinge lock, which is positioned on the oven frame. Place the blade of the screwdriver into the slot on the top of the hinge lock and pull it forward, toward the oven door. The hinge is now unlocked.
Repeat Step 2 on the right side to unlock that hinge.
Grab the sides of the oven door toward the top. As you hold the door firmly, close it between the broil-stop position and the closed position. The door should be open about 3 inches. Lift the door up and pull it toward you to remove it from the unlocked hinges.
Tips & Warnings
- Make sure the door is completely cool and not still hot from baking in the oven before you remove it.
- The oven door is quite heavy and large. Use caution when you remove it. Make sure you can handle it safely, or have an assistant help.
- Always handle the GE oven door by its sides when you remove it. Don't attempt to lift it up by its handle.
