Taa Da!!! Thank you all for your help by sharing your pictures. Today I made a film, burnt a screen, and silkscreened a few off. Now I just need to get a hang of using the number punch to line the numbering up on the embossable aluminium :-)

Magic Chef labels

Very Impressive. You could sell those to others restoring vintage Airstreams.

Thanks for the input. The manual gave me the part number I need, but no info on the door removal. I hope to contact the parts folks and see if they can tell me how. The oven I have works great looks great except for the door. The door handle has been repaired with sheet metal screws and the glass has some flaky looking stuff between it and the inner glass. Kinda like the vista view window issue. I am stubborn though, I will get this.

Found this online for replacing hinges on a household model magic chef. When the hinges and screws are removed the door will come apart which should give you the access you need for cleaning and repair.

https://youtu.be/tAypQqC5cxo


And this...


Step 1

Open the door completely.

Step 2

Flip the hinge latches all the way down on both sides of the door.

Step 3

Close the oven door. Lift the door up and away from the Magic Chef oven to remove it. Set the door down with the inside facing up.

Step 4

Remove the screws along the bottom of the door frame connecting the inside door frame. Lift the inner frame off.

Step 5

Remove the screws holding the faulty hinge in place. Lift the hinge out of the door.

Step 6

Insert the new hinge into the oven door. Install the screws that hold it in place.

Step 7

Replace the inner door frame. Install the screws that hold the frame to the door.

Step 8

Replace the door onto the oven. Open the door all the way. Flip the hinge latches up.

!Door is Off

Turns out I didn't have to take off the door at the hinges to get at the handle. Just took of the outside trim and it all came apart. The glass has these lines that are all flaking off. I wonder if they serve any heat retarding function. Looks bad and paint stripper takes them off. I might have to break down and buy new glass and handle.

The lines are (were) just decorative. No harm done in removing them :-)

Any luck finding a replacement door handle? If so, care to share where you picked one up? PO snapped the thing in thirds on mine.

It does. Thanks!

So this one doesn't look like the original, looks like I could easily fabricate a new handle so long as the screw holes are the diameter and distance apart.
