Now for this job, you'll need a torque head screwdriver set and an electric drill. You may also want to use a pair of gloves for protection.
Step 1. Remove The Oven Door
Oven doors have different types of release mechanisms depending on the model. While some require a pin or nail to be inserted through a hole in the hinge which locks the mechanism and allows you to lift the door away from the oven, others have a catch on the hinge that you need to turn.
As for the Neff oven door handle, you simply need to flick or lift those holding catches over and lift the door out to be completely released.
Step 2. Unscrew All The Screws
After detaching the oven door, put it on a secure flat surface, like a table. Unfasten all the six screw heads using the torque head screw set and an electric drill. The screws are located on the back and bottom part of the door.
Take note also that if the screws are a bit rusty and grimy, clean them. If the screws are damaged, you should replace them.
Step 3. Separate The Two Pieces Of Glass
The Neff oven door frame is comprised of two pieces of glass. So before you can actually replace or fix your oven door handles, you need to separate the inner and outer glass to reach the handle screws that are located on the inside of the outer glass.
Simply lift up the inner glass once the whole process of unscrewing the 6 screws is done.
Step 4. Unscrew The Handle Screws And Strengthening Pieces
Once you're done separating the two glasses, you can now see the handle screws. Unscrew the handle screws and remove the strengthening pieces that are fixed with it.

Fixing an oven door handle includes reattaching and replacing a new one.

It is also very vital that after fixing the handle, you should be able to redo the steps and return all the parts back into their correct positions.
