Gentlemen,

The oven door opens about halfway and then stops. There is firm resistance to opening further. I don't see any obstructions. What to do? If it's hinges, how do I check?

Thanks for your expertise.

Default Answering my own question

I found a video on YouTube that shows how to replace the hinge in my oven. This video is applicable to similar GE ovens that use hinge WB14X103 (left hinge) and WB14X104 (right hinge). Video is here:
GE Oven/Stove/Range Hinge with Roller - Left Side Replacement (Part # WB14X103) - YouTube

It's an easy fix:

Tilt the door to the broiler position and lift it off the hinges.
Remove the storage drawer at the bottom of the oven.
The hinge springs are accessible on left and right. Unhook the spring from the hinge, taking note of which hole the spring is hooked in.
Unscrew three screws from the front of the hinge, visible on the front side of the oven.
Lift out the hinge.
Reverse to install the new hinge.
Easy-peasy.

Let's keep these old appliances running!
