Removing a Dacor Oven Door

Installing a Dacor oven or making repairs to the door glass, sometimes requires removing the oven door from the unit. Dacor uses a unique locking system to secure the door to the main unit. This locking system is on all of their wall ovens and ranges. Removing a Dacor oven door does not require assistance; however, you must be ready to support the weight of the door once it disengages from the main unit.

Step 1

Open the Dacor oven door fully. The door should be horizontal to the stove or oven and resting on its hinges.

Step 2

Turn the hinge catch on both hinges with your finger until it is pointing straight up. The hinge catch is a small flat metal piece with a bend on one end. The bottom of the catch fastens to the door hinge with a rivet.

Step 3

Grab the sides of the Dacor oven door and lift the door approximately 30 degrees. Pull the door away from the oven or range while continuing to lift, until it is free from the unit.
