Whirlpool Oven Door Issues
Whirlpool Range/Stove/Oven Door Hinge
An oven door repair may be needed if the door hinge breaks or is bent out of shape. Oven doors have two door hinges, a left and right. On some ovens the same hinge is used, on other ovens the right hinge and left hinge have different part numbers. The door hinge sometimes is sold with all necessary parts and springs, other times the parts need to be ordered separately. An oven door repair for a door hinge is a relatively easy repair for a do-it-yourselfer.
Whirlpool Range/Stove/Oven Outer Door Glass
If the outer door glass is broken, it can be replaced. This oven door repair requires that the oven door be removed from the oven and layed down on a sturdy flat surface. The outer door glass is made of tempered glass. Use eye and hand protection when performing this oven door repair.
Whirlpool Range/Stove/Oven Door Gasket
An oven door gasket that is torn or damaged will not provide a good seal between the door and the oven frame, resulting in the oven having trouble heating up to the correct temperature and preventing the oven from going into its self-clean mode.
Whirlpool Range/Stove/Oven Inner Door Glass
The oven’s inner door glass can break if a pot or heavy tray is dropped on it when the door is in the open position. A new inner door glass can usually be replaced by uninstalling the door and removing the screws to separate the inner and outer door panels.
Whirlpool Range/Stove/Oven Door Handle
An oven door handle that is loose or visibly damaged should be replaced to ensure safe oven operation.
