Removing the door from your oven isn't as daunting of a task as it may seem. Whether you're replacing the door, or just taking it off so that you can give it a good, deep clean, it's a relatively simple task that any homeowner should be able to handle.

Don't let your oven door intimidate you.

Step 1

Turn off any gas or power supplies to the oven, and make sure the oven is off.

Step 2

Open the door to the broil position. This is usually the last position that the door will stay open by itself before it closes.

Step 3

Grab the door by both sides and gently lift it up. You should feel the hinges start to come loose from the oven base.

Step 4

If necessary, use a screwdriver to help pry the hinges out of their sockets.

Step 5

Unscrew the hinges on self-cleaning models in order to remove the door.

Step 6

Lift the oven door up and out of the oven.
