Mflips,

Here are the basic, general door removal instructions from the service manual,

I used to add washers to the assembly, to help spread the tension out and help keep the screws from loosenning.


REMOVING THE OVEN
DOOR HANDLE & TOP TRIM
1. Turn off the electrical supply to the range.
2. Open the oven door, remove it (refer to page
1-14 for the procedure), and position it on a
protected floor with the handle and outer door
glass facing up.
3. Remove the two door mounting screws from
the liner side of the door.
4. Lift the door liner and remove the two screws
from the old door handle and top trim.
5. Mount the new handle and top trim to the oven
door.
6. Reinstall the oven door on the range

REMOVING THE OUTER
DOOR GLASS

1. Turn off the electrical supply to the range.
2. Remove the oven door (see page 1-14 for the
procedure), and position it on a protected
floor with the handle and outer door glass
facing up.
3. Raise the top of the door and remove the two
screws that secure the top of the door trim and
the handle to the door liner, then remove the
handle and top trim.
4. Slide the outer door glass out of the bottom
trim channel and install the new glass in its
place.
5. Install the top trim and handle on the oven
door and secure them in place with their two
mounting screws. REASSEMBLY NOTE: The
side trim on Whirlpool oven doors fits under
the top edge of the outer door glass, and the
side trim on Roper models fits over the top
edge of the glass. Make sure that the trim is
seated properly when you tighten the screws.
6. Reinstall the oven door on the range.
