I have problems replacing my drop down oven door into position.

This answer was rated:

I have problems replacing my drop down oven door into position. It is a Neff B1644NOGB FD 8701. The drop down door has two catches at bottom left and right. I was returning the door to the oven when the left hand clipped snapped into place locking the mechanism on that left side. How can I release it?
Hi sorry to hear that. These are very strong springs you are working with. The spring loaded catches(hinges need to be removed from the housing chassis of the oven to fix this.
There are screw you need to locate and remove for this.
No additional cost to you to rate and then I will stick with you until this is fixed and working as it should.
Thank you and have a great day!

I will wait for my husband to come home to do this as I have somewhat arthritic hands. I will hold off on the rating until then if that is all right with you. I dont like rating someone until I have given a good attempt at trying to solve my problem. I will be in touch this afternoon.

Hi Janice that will be fine;-)
If you have any further questions about this please let me know.
Have a great day!

We fixed it but not unscrewing anything. We used a pair of pliers and eased the lock back. Easy for a man with strong hands but a woman fast approaching 70....well, I am not as strong with my hands as I used to be...sadly that is life. Anyway it is fixed.

Well thats good ;-)
Usually for safety you should remove the hinges as they can hurt you been there years ago lol.
Glad its fixed and have a great day!
