Time to install my new frigidaire double wall oven and that sunofa is HEAVY. I could handle the old double wall oven just fine after removing the doors. I just pulled and the doors came off exposing a little metal bracket that seems like it could be reinstereted.

I'm considering doing that for the new oven since it will easily cut 60-70 pounds from the oven. However, I'm not too sure how to put the doors back on after I get the oven into the cabinet. ... My model number is PLEB30T8CC, Frigidaire

Any advice is greatly desired and will be much appreciated.

Pardon my stupidity. I knew the 4 inch high letters on the side of the box proclaiming the model number should not be trusted.

The correct model number - at least the model number printed on the tag inside the door of the oven - is PLEB30T8CCB

Apparently, they ran out of ink when printing the labels on the box and left the "B" off the end.

I graciously beg your forgiveness for this poor grasshopper who previously wasting your time.

I'm bumping this back up to the top in hopes someone can offer a little advice or a warning as appropriate. I plan to tackle this install either Wednesday or Thursday evening.

The owners manual provides insturctions but they look a little too simplistic and leave me expecting a gotcha. Here's what it says:
1.Open the door to the fully opened position.
2.Pull up the lock located on each hinge support and engage it in the hook of the hinge lever. You may have to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully over the hooks.
3.Grasp the door by the sides, pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports.
Keep pulling the bottom of the door toward you while rotating the top of the door toward the appliance to completely disengagethe hinge levers.
4.Proceed in reverse to re-install the door. Make sure the hinge supports are fully engaged before unlocking the hinge levers.

This accompanying pictures look like the hignes I saw on the 20 year old oven I removed. I'm hoping someone here has done this and can say "Yep it's that simple." or "They should have told you to ..."

Thanks in advance.

And thanks for the wiring guide Samurai! Very fast shipping.

Yes it really is that easy - if any one is coming here looking for advice on the same issue. The part of the hinge that is held with the locking tab appears to be spring loaded . If not fully in place, the locking tab is very hard to move. That's probably a good thing!
