We'd like to explain you how to change the oven door seal on your range. If the seal on your door is dry or cracked or otherwise damaged, you may need to replace it. It's a really easy job.
Let me explain you how we do it. Now, before we begin this repair, we want to make sure that the oven is cool enough to work on. Then we'll simply open the door up.
Now, depending on your model, you may be able to pull the ends of that gasket away from the inner door panel at the bottom. If they don't pull easily, you'll need to remove the door and take it apart to change that gasket. If your model does allow you to pull out the gasket out of there and it only has a short portion of it inside of the door, you simply just pop those clips all the way around and you can change the gasket with the door in place.
On this one we won't be able to, so we're going to lift these little door stops away from the oven body and tuck them back against the door. That will lock the hinge in place so that the door stays open that far. Then we can lift the door and hinges out of the oven body and we'll set it on a work surface to change the gasket.
Now, on this model, we'll begin by removing these four screws across the bottom and that secures the outer door skin to the inner door panel.
Now, with those removed, we can separate those two halves. We'll set the over door panel aside. Next, we'll need to remove both the handle and the two screws that secure the hinges to that inner door panel so that we can separate them.
With the top screws removed, we can slide the vent and the handle off and just set those aside.
Then the screws that secure the hinges to the panel come next. Let's take that panel off the hinges, set those aside. You will see where on this model the end of that door seal is caught between the panel and the actual inner door panel, so we need to separate those.
Now, next, we'll need to remove this inner door glass.
There are four screws that are securing these two brackets that hold that glass in place. We need to remove those. If you are able to slide that glass out of one of those brackets, you won't need to remove both of them.
They appear to be glued in place, so we'll leave it intact and take it out as an assembly.
That gives us access to these four screws that secure that inner panel to the actual oven inner door panel. While we have this door completely apart, it's a good opportunity to clean those inner door glasses. Now we can lift up on that panel.
There will be some insulation that may adhere to the back of it. Just carefully separate that.
Once we pull that fair enough forward, we'll be able to see the gasket that is in underneath of that. I can then pull out through those openings on the bottom. We'll just put that door over to explain you that.
The rest of the gasket is held in place with these little arrowhead fasteners. We simply just pull those out of the holes all the way around the door. We can then discard the old gasket and lay our new one in place.
We'll line up the two pins that are closest to the end and insert those into the openings. Make sure that we don't get any twists in that gasket and just proceed to go all the way around and install them all. Now, we'll take the loose end of that gasket and push that down through that opening.
You can use a small flat blade screwdriver to assist with that.
Then we'll turn that assembly upside so that we can secure that inner panel. Take that opportunity to set the insulation back into place and just tuck those gaskets down and underneath the insulation so that if you have to change them again, you won't have to pull the door completely apart. As we mentioned, it's a good opportunity to clean that inner door glass while you have the door apart. Now we have that insulation tucked down and out of the way.
Our glass is clean.
We'll put that inner heat shield back in place. Make sure it's tucked in under the lip at the bottom of the inner door panel, then install the four screws to secure. Next, we'll put that inner door glass in place.
Line up the screw holes and then install the screws.
Next, we'll flip that over and we'll install the hinges. Slide that hook up through the opening, center the hole and then tighten it. Just lift it up and line up the top screw.
Then repeat for the opposite side.
Now we're ready to install that top vent. Line up the screw holes. You just insert both screws all the way through.
Then we will position the door handle below those screws and then we're going to attach it.
You may want to stand the door on end so that you get a view of that screw coming through. Don't tighten it completely yet; we'll just get it on there snug so that we can pivot the opposite end into position. Make sure we keep that top vent square with the door as we tighten the screw, and snug up both ends. We'll lay it flat again, and we can put the corridor panel back on.
Make sure that we tuck this two end brackets up and close to that.
Keep them up tight to the top of that vent as you pull it forward along the glass up with the slot on the bottom of the vent. We can then secure it with the screws on the bottom. Now we're ready to put the door back on the range.
So just line up both hinges with the openings in the oven body. Make sure they're fully inserted.
If they're properly inserted, the door should open flat. Then tilt up the stops. Close up your door and your repair is complete.
