How to Fix an Oven Door Handle

Hi I’m Mat from eSpares, in this video
I’ll be showing you how to fit an oven door handle to this Indesit cooker. Safety first: Always disconnect an appliance
before carrying out any work. If your door handle is broken loose or missing
it’s very easy to fit a brand-new one. Top tip though if you have previously removed
the handle from your oven door remember to retain all screws and washers
as these can be pretty difficult to obtain. The next thing I need to do
is to remove the door from the cooker itself. To remove the oven door from the oven simply lift up
the hinge catches to release the hinges lift the door up and away from the oven. Now what I’m going to do to protect the door
just put a soft mat down onto the oven itself. But you could use an old towel or piece of cloth
just to protect the door. Now what I need to do is to separate the parts
of the door by undoing these four screws at the bottom here and the two at the top. With all the screws removed carefully lift up
the inner door and also the hinges. And here we have the outer door,
you can see here that these are holes where the door handle should go through
and they are retained by this bracket here which isn’t fully connected to do be careful about that. And then we can grab our screws we have a screw with two spacer washers, one locking washer and then this plastic washer
which goes on the outside. So what I am going to do is bring the handle in
and get my screwdriver ready. And what i can do is lift the outer door towards me,
feed the screw and the two spacer washers and the locking washer through the screw hole
put our plastic washer through it offer the handle up to the screw
and then screw it together. When screwing in the first side of the door handle
make sure you don’t screw it in to tightly as you wont be able to lift the other half up
and screw it into place. With this other half what I’m going to do
is put the plastic washer in to place first put my handle in place. Pop it down and then I can simply put the screw
and the other washes in place like this. With the handle nice and secure
you can then refit the inner door. I can refit all the screws. I can then refit the door. Make sure you hook the hinges
up into the oven and then drop it down
so it’s nice and secure. Hook the hinges up into the oven at the door
drop down put the locks in place. So there we have it, one brand new door handle
fitted to this Indesit cooker. Remember spares and accessories

  1. This video was a life saver, cheers mate! I also struggled with the hinges getting stuck in a position where I could not hook the door back onto the oven, but it became unstuck with some needle-nosed pliers. (I didn't literally pry it open but put the tips of of the pliers between the "hook" and the inner oven door and then opened them. This "popped" the hinge so I could open it further with my bare hands and then use the hinge catches to keep it open, enabling me to hook it back onto the oven.

  2. Our door opens at the side. In case I get stuck halfway is this the same procedure?! do i tell the landlord I have to lay the whole oven on it's side? deduct one weeks rent ha ha – (seriously , any difference?) Beko bdv g592k
