I was pulling my oven away from the wall and made the error of grabbing the oven door.  One side of the oven door pulled out...and with it the sound of a released spring.

I tried to get it back in, but sure enough the other side came out in the prcoess.

I tried for 15 minutes to figure out how to get the door back on.  I can't get it.

The model # is RF385PXEW.  It's about 10 years old.

 

Help! I feel so stupid.

 

Dave

Looks like your door hinges (item 10)are the type that has holes to accommodate locking pins, which would have been supplied with your wall oven, possibly taped in your users guide, which would also explain how to remove and re-install the door.

REMOVING THE OVEN DOOR







For normal use of your range, you do not need to







remove the door. However, if you have to remove







the door follow the instructions in this section.







NOTE: If the door removal pins included in the







Anti-Tip Bracket Package are not available, nails







or screws may be used. Be careful that the length







of the nail or screw does not damage the oven by







chipping or scratching the porcelain surface.







To remove:







1. Open the door about halfway. Insert door







removal pins into both hinge hangers. Do not







remove them while the door is removed from







the range.







2. Close the door as far as the door removal pins







will let you.







3. Rotate the door toward the range. Lift up the







door until it stops. Do not use the door handle to







lift the door. Rotate the door toward the floor and







pull it toward you.







REMOVING THE OVEN DOOR (CONT.)







To replace:







NOTE: The door removal pins you inserted must still







be in both sides of the door.







1. Grasp the door on the sides with your fingers on







the front of the door and your thumbs on the







inside surface.







2. Rest the hinge hanger so that it is flat (at the







bottom of the hinge hanger on the bottom of the







front frame slot).







3. Position the door with the hinge hanger slots







almost parallel to the front frame.







4. Push up and in until the hinge hanger slots







become fastened to the range. Lower the door







and rotate it slightly from the front to the back







until the slots are fully fastened. The hinge







hanger will be close to the bottom of the front







frame slot.







5. Pull door open about halfway and remove the







door removal pins. Save door removal pins for







future use.







6. Close the door.

Thanks all. 

 

The manual is long gone...previous homeowner lost/misplaced them.

 

However, I used a couple of nickels to prop the hinges open in the right position and then the door slid right in, and "locked" into place.

 

Great site everyone!
