    Awesome; I had to retrofit a natural gas oven to LPG and the nozzles and
    regulator were no problem until they told me to remove the oven door to
    replace the bake/broiler nozzle under the oven bottom (floor); I started
    taking off all the screws that held the door together but not on the oven;
    thanks for making my Thanksgiving Day a success. The Turkey got done!!!

    trying to get an oven door off! You would think I would remember how to get
    the door off after that experience….. but no!!! So, with your help, no
    problems this time!!! I don’t know if you send parts to Australia but if
    you do, we will be utilizing your shop in future. Cheers!!

    pretty good video, I like that you show the full look and the close up
    view. I have a 25yr old hotpoint oven model rk747g0d1bg It looks a little
    like the type 3 you showed, except it has no pin hole do you have video for
    removal of that oven door?

    That sorted the problem. Sorry but I have already bought the glue on EBay
    otherwise I would have sourced if from you. May still do as this glue is
    taking ages to set. I thought it would be like those glues where you just
    need to hold it together for 10 minutes or so and it would tack or grab
    together and be easy to do.

    Thank you for this very helpful video. I recently acquired a second-hand
    cooker oven made by SOL, model # TH630 I. It needed a good cleaning, and so
    I decided to remove the door, as I’ve done in the past with other ovens.
    Unfortunately, I was unfamiliar with its hinge, and only managed to remove
    one side of the door. I couldn’t get the other side out no matter how I
    tried, and I couldn’t get the first side back in — because, of course, the
    spring had pulled the hinge into the closed position.

    First I tried calling the company’s local rep, who referred me to a service
    outlet, who were already closed for the day (This was Thursday evening).
    Their answering service told they couldn’t get anyone here before Monday
    around noon, and it would cost me about US$ 70 just for the service — any
    parts would of course be extra. However, I needed to be able to use the
    oven on Friday, so that was no good.

    Then I found the manual online, but it wasn’t in English, and anyway it
    didn’t describe the removal and replacement of the door. Then I called a
    couple of friends in the neighborhood who are handy, but none of them could
    come over before — possibly — Friday.

    THEN I REMEMBERED YOUTUBE!! I searched for relevant videos, and first
    viewed this one: http://youtu.be/EBhJk85mc1Q which showed how to use a pipe
    to get the hinge back into the right position. That was informative, but
    since the door was still attached to the body of the oven, it was
    impossible to implement his solution. Luckily, there was a link to your
    video (this one) on the right, and I discovered that I have a pin-type
    hinge. Using an Allen key as you suggested, I was able to remove the door
    and lay it on the floor. I then went to implement the pipe idea from the
    first video, but the only spare pipe I had in the house was 3″ PVC, which
    snapped when I attempted the demonstrated technique.

    I resorted to using a small all-steel sledge hammer, but not in the usual
    manner. Sitting on the floor with the door wedged between the base of the
    kitchen cabinet and the sole of my foot, I held the hammer horizontally
    behind the catch of the hinge, and pulled back against the mighty spring.
    The pin-hole appeared, and a second pair of hands attached to my
    recently-recruited daughter slipped a second Allen key through it. PRESTO!

    I finished the cleaning job, successfully re-inserted the door, and am left
    wondering whether PRIOR to all this activity the door didn’t close quite as
    much as I think it should, which is its present condition (open by perhaps
    a few millimeters away from snug to the rubber gasket).

    Thank you again for producing this and all your helpful videos.

    *Do You Know How To Remove Yours?*

    *If in doubt consult a professional – or YouTube*

    I’m pretty sure many people don’t realise their oven doors are fairly
    easily removed for cleaning. The removal allows better access to clean
    inside the oven, meaning less stretching and risk of muscle strain. It
    also allows easy access to clean out all the cooking detritus that builds
    up under the bottom lip of the door.

    Many of the leading brands use a similar style of hinge: yesterday I came
    across one I’d not seen before, but thanks to YouTube I now know how to
    remove the door next time I come across that brand.

    If you do remove the door, just remember they can be quite heavy,
    particularly on the large range type cookers. They are best removed by two
    people where possible. Be careful to place the door in a safe manner and
    somewhere where there is minimal risk of the glass getting damaged, or
    scratches to the surround.

    This video shows some of the more common types: although essentially the
    reverse of the removal procedure, replacing the door can be a little tricky
    sometimes, as he points out. A little wiggle and a good dollop of patience
    will normally get it back on securely.

    I have the second type of door (the one-part-hinge-system) and I don’t know
    what to do.
    I removed the door to clean it and somehow the hinge is closed on one side
    and open on the other. Now I can’t fit it back in and the hinges cannot be
    moved. Anyone familiar with that problem?
