  1. Hello. I am attempting to replace the hinges on a Dacor wall oven for a friend. It seemed a relatively easy job until I saw that the lock pins had been twisted and distorted so they would not engage the arms. It seems I cannot remove the door by any other means ! Is there another way of removing old hinges. I believe the locks were damaged by an over zealous relative when the door was out of alignment. The door has been replaced once already and I .totally agree the original hinges are not substantial enough for the door weight. Dacor should have addressed this issue under a warranty or at best not changed $ 120.00
