Removing Oven Door

In order to get the city to pick up my old oven (Jennair built-in unit) I need to remove the door.
I know it requires some sort of lifting maneuver but I can't seem to get it.
Any tips?
Thanks,
Ian

Never had one of them, but the GE self-cleaning I'm familiar with have one or two screws on the door that has to come out, then they just lift off. The really old non-self-cleaning just lifted off--no screws.
Sometimes they are a little stuck and take some jostling to get started if it's been quite a while since they've been off...

door and pull straight out on the plane of the door. If that doesn work, check out Jennaire website, as they usually have users manuals for download.

What he said, but some have latches on each hinge that hold the door to the hinge mechanism. My Kenmore wall oven has the latches.

What's wrong with you people? Even if it has doors that slide off the hinges so what.
We are always fixin' broken shit. Just beat the piss out of it with a sledge hammer. And if you're in an area where you can legally discharge a rifle, a shotgun can conjure up some hardy laughs. Have some fun.

Those mechanisms are like a Rubik's cube sometimes. You have to take these two screws out so you can slide the hammusframmer to get at the REAL setscrew that holds it on. And usually after you get it out, you see how simple it really is. They are designed that way so dirt and crud don't accumulate. It's old and worthless. Just start taking screws out. Many times, after you take out screws, you just pull on the door, and it pulls off the flatbar side arms it is screwed to, but are inside the door and you can't see. And sometimes you have to lay down or stand on your head to see the vital screws.

3' crowbar? 8' digging bar? 10lb sledge? Acetylene? Angle grinder? tow chain?
Taint brainsugery, it's going in the trash.

Doesn't matter - the city won't pick it up anyway.
The city won't get the chance!
The urban faeries will get it before the city can put on their boots. Same with water heaters, refrigerators, junked cars, whatever.
These untouchables make a passable living, evidently, prowling the streets looking for scrap metal.
------- My city has an ordinance that before they'll pick up a refrigerator it has to have a notice that the refrigerant has been removed in a safe, non-polluting, recoverable manner by a certified technician ordained by Al Gore himself. I asked the head of Solid Waste Disposal (not the police department, the other one) how many refrigerators they pick up a year and he said about a hundred or so.
This in a city of two million.
