Question GE wall oven - how to replace door hinge?

Hi forum,

Our situation...

We have a GE double wall oven, about 17 years old, that has a broken door hinge, right side, on the top oven.

GE service was called, the technician stated that the hinges are no longer available for our model oven, and therefore he couldn't repair it.
I'm unable to find the part...new, anywhere. However, I've found some seller's on eBay (looks like recycle or repair shops) where I can get used hinges.

At this time, replacing the ovens new isn't an option.

From the GE repair tech, this is the information on our double wall oven:
GE / Hotpoint electric range
Model No: JTP56S0D1SS
Part No's: WB14T10009 (Hinge Asm-Right)
WB14T10010 (Hinge Asm-Left)

I've searched for DIY videos on how to replace the hinges, but have been unsuccessful. Almost all videos I've seen are either for single ovens with a broiler bottom, or wall ovens where the hinge can be replaced by simply taking the door off, which isn't the case with our oven.

Do I need to pull out both ovens in order to get to a side panel in order to take the hinges out?

Any ideas on how these hinges are replaced?

Thanks.

P.S. The pic of the hinge doesn't look like it, but that hinge is definitely busted.

All oven doors are removable. Open the door to the first stop position and slide the door up and off the hinges. If the hinges are in real bad shape there won't be a stop position and you may have to slide the oven out and remove the springs to take the pressure off the hinges.

There are two screws on the side of the hinge. You will required to slide the oven out of the cabinet. The video below is very similar to yours except your two screws are in the side.... not one visible from the front.

I checked with some of my local parts guys...... those hinges were trouble and there are no more around. I do see them used on ebay and that looks like your only choice now.

Looking at your pictures it looks like door is damaged also. You may have to fix the bend in door also.

Thanks for the replies.

Yeah, I can get the door to come off.

The hinge was bent several years ago, and finally failed recently. Over time, it worn down some of the hinge opening on the oven side and a bit on the top of the opening on the door side.

Looks like the only option for repair is to slide the ovens out of the cabinet. Darn it, was hoping to avoid having to do that...oh well.

That video will be a big help. Thanks again!

When you pull it out put something about the same height to set it on. You will be glad you did.
