Talking Oven door, pitting

For those who don't know....
Did you know the oven door (at least on the mid 70's) metal facing is reversible? Mine was pitted, so I took it off to refinish it. the other side was like NEW!

Hi...just browsing the Forum looking for info on how to remove oven door(Magic Chef) from my 1973 Landyacht. Any suggestion would be helpful re I want to check and see condition of same. I had the stove top & cover powdercoated(black gloss) and it came out terrific but don't want to throw away my money on unnecessary work

Be careful removing the oven door! I tried to follow the advice from a local dealer and did not quite understand. You have to place a nail or something in the hinges to keep the pieces that are attached to a spring from snapping back into the sides of the oven! I placed the nails, but did not understand why... when I couldn't get the door off I removed the nails and SNAP! I lost the hinge pieces. Now the sides of the oven need to be removed. I gave up on this stove and purchased another.

Anyone need a 1974 stainless Magic Chef? Slightly dismantled!? It was working nicely until I started 'fixing' it! OH and the stainless panel on this one is not reversible...

Pam

Thanks for the info Pam...I managed to get the front stainless steel section off of the oven without removing the complete door. I have had the section, top and cover powdercoated gloss black. I have tried to download pics on forum but keep getting notification that the site unable to accept re JPG image to big and I am unable at this time to figure out how to reduce to a thumbnail...will keep trying. The stove now looks like new after the powdercoating.
