Default Maytag Gemini range upper door lock retainer placement?
Model Number: MER6872BAB   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I am repairing a Maytag MER6872BAB Freestanding Double Oven Electric Range.

I have just one part that I didn't properly document when I disassembled the unit and can't recall exactly how to put it back. The part is # 14 in diagram 1 here: Body replacement parts for MAYTAG MER6872BAB FREESTANDING-DOUBLE OVEN-ELECTRIC | AppliancePartsPros.com, it is part # AP4094736 "Retainer, insul. door lock" I recall that it was not surprisingly somewhere near the upper door lock assembly and the top of the oven wrap insulation / or maybe embedded into the insulation a bit, but I can't find any way to line up the screw holes with any other part, etc. From the diagram it looks like it would screw in below part 12, but it doesn't line up with the screw holes.

Does anyone have any ideas or experience with this part?

Thanks

Frank

Default UPDATE: figured it out

I figured it out. I was just being dense. The part fits right below the door lock and is attached by two sheet-metal screws essentially as hinted at by the repair manual which states in the disassembly section: "Remove two (2) screws securing lock assembly to frame". These are actually the 2 screws that attach the retainer plate, not the frame. What was throwing me off is that the retainer plate has many screw holes. But two are operational. If anyone else ever has the problem, the retainer goes directly under the lock assembly, with the tab in the rear, pointing to the right, and two screws in the front attach down through the lock assembly into the retainer. Presumably the purpose of this part is to keep the insulation from getting entangled with the door lock.
