Help Needed to Screw Back on Oven Door


Postby BCosta » Wed Jul 13, 2016 5:55 pm

Hello and thanks for reading,

I decided to take out the door of an old gas oven in order to clean it. I merely took out 4 screws and unattached the hinges from the oven. The issue is that when I went to screw the door back in there was nothing to screw into - whatever was holding the screws is no longer there!

I can't access the other side of the hole without dismantling the whole thing (which considering the circumstances sounds like a risk). I've looked into oven glue, but I don't think any glue can possibly horizontally hold a 10kg oven door.

Literally any suggestion is appreciated as I would really hate to replace a functioning cooker + oven because I can't get a few screws back in!

Thank you very much
