Does that include fitting? It may well be more when you take fitting it into account.
Fitting a oven door can be done by the owner as it's normal to remove for cleaning. No need for expert installation.

Not by me it isn't. I have never ever removed an oven door to clean it and I have no intention of ever doing so.
Life's too short to spend time removing oven doors to clean them.

Re: Broken oven

I wouldn't dream of touching it, I wouldn't know what the hell I was doing. I am absolutely pathetic at practical things, to the point of not being able to assemble the simplest item of Ikea furniture. However, my boyfriend is not also clever, but great with his hands (as the actress said to the bishop). We have had several occasions where things have broken and, although never having dealt with that particular problem before, has managed to work it out and fix it extremely quickly. I'm sure an oven door won't pose a problem.

Why would you need staff to clean the oven door?
I open it and clean the inside then I close it and clean the outside, why on earth would I need to take the door off to do that?

Grease drips down the hinges, & behind the door where you can't reach. Removing should take less than 15 seconds........

To remove an oven door you open the oven, then look at the hinges, there will be a bit that lifts up/swings up. once in the up position, then close the door as far as you can & then lift the door up & out. Assembly is the reverse

I don't know what you cook in your oven but I can assure you that there is no grease dripping down the hinges when I use the oven. There is nowhere behind the door that I can't reach so I see no need to ever take the door off so I won't.

Thanks for the explanation thought albeit totally unnecessary.

Duck, it makes a big mess, an EF member spent 3 hours cleaning her oven after I cooked her Sunday lunch.

Re: Broken oven

I'm confused. Are you from the north of England or did you cook duck?

That's not the only reason to remove the oven door. It is just easier to reach and clean inside the oven when the door is out of the way.

Neff makes ovens with "slidehide" doors. Now I think these are really cool as the door slides underneath the oven and is never in the way.

Did you see the photo? He's good at DIY, he's not a magician. He can't make a new glass sheet materialise out of nowhere.
