Hinge recepticles on KA KEBC207KSS05

7 posts in this topic

I need to change the door hinge receptacles behind the liner on this model.  Does not mention them in service manual.  Anybody with any tips on how to change these short of removing the front liner?

Pull the oven entirely out of the kitchen cabinet and remove the side panels.

Maybe some parts changing monkey dna in me but I've learned to change hinges and receptacles cause it sucks to pull this oven and take off the sides only to find the hinges were bad and not the receptacles. (unless the receptacles are obviously bent/broken)

OK, that is what I will do. Hinges were changed a month ago by someone else and it did not fix it. Receptacles are worn on the bottom making the door sag to one side. Weird I know but whatever. Thanks for the quick response.

 I'll second that, If I have to order parts, I order both the hinges and the receptacles and quote both in the estimate.

Don't know how you guys do this but the lower side panels support the top half of the oven and the sheet metal wraps around them.  Did get RH off and oven started to collapse.  Had to call another tech friend and we separated the two ovens. Am I missing something here?

Not parts changing monkey at all-- I always change both hinges and receptacles at the same time.  Unless there's a service bulletin out that specifically points a specific problem, it's almost impossible to whether the hinge or the receptacle is the culprit so I just change both.  Yep, learned that in rehab.
