Title: Door hinge replacement on Bosch HMC80251UC/01
Post by: johnboy3 on February 20, 2018, 07:55:44 AM
Anyone have the manual for this microwave / browning oven? HMC80251UC/01 (https://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=omv7WULuxaw&subid=0&offerid=225193.1&type=10&tmpid=2111&RD_PARM1=http&RD_PARM2=%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros&RD_PARM3=.com%252Fparts-for-bosch-hmc80251uc-01.html)  Need to change a hinge, and hope to not have to learn while I earn how the door comes off.  Manual or advice from those familiar with this one would be much appreciated!

Thanks for the reply, I wonder if that hinge holder is supposed to be made by the tech, or included with the hinge?  The hinge I got had been opened, and holder was not included.  Did manage to get job done, though!

Hello,

How did you remove the door? and were you able to find the spring attached to the hinge separately?

I have a broken spring on the right side that I want to replace, but I can't find the part or the instructions apart form the hinge only.

Any suggestions/pointers?

Thanks.

The hinge comes with the spring.  You get to make your own holders, dimensions in the manual.  I found it to be a pain to work on and would turn one down in the future.  Good luck?!

I just spent two hours on opening the plastic inside the door. It's absolutely painful. I agree. I have given up. Will have to call a technician now. This appears simple but very difficult.

BTW, where did you get "holders" to keep the hinges open while putting door back? That's another painful task.

Made the holders out of a piece of steel stock, the dimensions are in the manual mentioned earlier in this thread.  I think the worst part of the job was the customer watching over my shoulder, trying to see if I was damaging anything!!!

I am surely not that handy so I would have to leverage someone like yours expertise :(

How do you remove the plastic cover so you can access the hinges?
The manual does not mention that.
Thanks,
John
