Title: Need HELP finding a set of replacement oven hinges (I've looked everywhere)
Post by: afcobra2 on November 23, 2021, 02:45:40 PM
Kenmore Wall Electric Oven
Model: 790.47893604
Serial: NF74510952


The door is sagging and keeping interior oven light on all of the time unless we prop something up next to the door to keep it shut.

Since this was made in 2007, so I wasn't able to find a replacement hinge for it. Looking for an expert to help me locate a set of hinges that will work as replacements.

Thanks in advance to everyone who can offer some help!

The Sears site showed the hinge as 318024714.
I then Googled the number and several sites including eBay showed up.

Coastparts said 318024747 was a replacement.
Googled that number and it said they were available on Amazon.

Note no matter where a hinge showed up it was expensive at approximately $100.00 per hinge.

If the hinges are complete, back in the day we used to silver solder a dob on the end of them to force them to pull in further etc., or add a spacer behind one end of the hinge to change the angle, depending on the hinge style. I'm sure there are many experienced techs who have done the same.
