How to fit replacement Aga door liners

This guide will work for all Aga types, may look a bit different but the principles are the same! It uses our Aga door liner replacement kit.

  • Fold a thick large towel in half and lay it flat on your worktop.
  • Using one hand on the top and one of the bottom of your Agas door lift it carefully and slowly straight up.
  • Once the pins are free of the bracket holes place the door with the enamel facing up. Give the door a good clean using our Aga cleaning kit.

  • Use a screwdriver to remove the 4 screws in each corner of the liner.

  • When all screws are removed use your screwdriver to lever up the liner as shown below. Do this at different parts around the liner until it will lift free.

  • When liner is off you can remove the seal. It may look like this or may be a simple rope (black or white) that has been glued to the door.

  • Squirt a little WD40 or light oil equivalent into the screw holes. It will stop future corrosion and make the new screws easier to get in later on.

  • Before you do anything else give the hinges a good scrub!

  • Pop the new liner on the door with insulation inside and place a screw in each hole. Pull back the protective film just a little as it will protect the liner from marks while you fit it.
