Handle is melted and/or the door is broken ¶
The handle on my oven door melted off and I have to use tongs or a fork to open the door.
The door was cracked or broken off completely.
The handle no longer functions as a handle or is broken. ¶
The handle can not be separated from the door. Therefore, to replace the handle, the door needs to be replaced completely. Here is a link to a replacement guide.
The door glass is cracked or broken. ¶
The door needs to be fully replaced if the glass is cracked or broken. Here is a link to a replacement guide.
The red light is on, but adjusting the heat setting doesn't seem to have any effect. ¶
Changing the heat settings does not seem to change how hot the oven gets.
The heat controls are worn out. ¶
Replace the oven heat and toaster heat control. Here is a link to a replacement guide.
Broken knob on the controls. ¶
The knob on the temperature/timer/oven just spins or has fallen off.
Check to see if the knob is stripped out or damaged. ¶
If the knob pulls off check and see if the back of the knob looks damaged. Here is a guide to replacing the control knobs.
If the knob does not pull off but spins freely the controls will need to be examined.
The door opens and closes loosely. ¶
My oven door is floppy and/or won't close completely.
The spring attached to the oven door could be broken or it may have fallen off. ¶
The spring could have fallen off or it might be broken. Here is a guide to removing and replacing the door spring.
