How to remove an oven door, door seal and oven glass
In most models the door just lifts off as shown in figure 3-F. If so, open the oven door to the first notch (nearly fully closed) and lift the door straight off its’ hinges. In some ovens, you must first remove one or two screws that hold the door to the hinge. Be careful and do NOT put your fingers under the hinges; the springs are strong and you might just end up wishing you hadn’t.
Working on oven hinges and springs in some models requires access through the broiler/storage pan or side panels. Shown in figure 3-F is a typical oven door hinge and spring arrangement.

Once you get the door off, remove any door edge trim and the screws that hold the door together. If you are replacing the oven glass or door seal, disassemble the door carefully and note how everything comes apart so you can get it back together. Often there are layers of stuff inside the door; insulation, oven glass (cleaning cycle) heat shields, door locking mechanisms, switches and other gadgets.
In some ovens, the door seal is attached to the oven opening instead of the door. To replace the door seal in these ovens, you sometimes have to open up the back panel of the oven and loosen the whole oven inner liner.
