Oven door will not shut fully

I have a maytag electri range, mode # C2E9400CCE. The oven door does not close fully and the oven light stays on. When I push on the door the light will go out, but I am not totally sure that there is a good seal. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up.

If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. We recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.

Oven light stays on and oven is inop on Kitchenaid KGSS907SSS01. Tried to go to self clean mode, Display states close door, but door is close.

I suspect the door/light switch has malfunction. Look for a plunger type of switch and press it in and see if light goes out. If light goes out, close door and gently press on door and see if light goes out. If this happens, I think the door hinges are not closing the door 100% so the door switch is not engaged. Now if door light stays on while pressing door switch, then the door switch might be your issue. Good Luck

My LG microwave will not shut off. When not in cooking mode and I close the door, the light stays on, it makes a light humming noise and the center plate continues turning

All microwave ovens have microswitches to confirm door open/closed. Many have several, and a bad switch can cause all sorts of strange issues. My ovens have 4 such switches, and I've had several go bad. You have to open the oven up to see which you need, measure them, and replace the bad ones. The good news is that the switches aren't expensive.

Why won't the oven lights turn off. I have done every sensible thing there is to do, what am I missing?

I assume that you have already checked for a switch on the control panel that might control the lights, if so, and that does not shut them off, then it sounds like there might be a problem with the door switch being stuck or broken and it thinks your door is still open. Hope this helps.

Oven shuts off after closing door

Have you put a thermometer in the oven to make sure it is not heating. They will not always glow red if the oven is at temp.

Oven door will not fully close allowing heat to escape and light stays on

Is the door locked? if it is it won't close all the way if it was in the locked position before it was closed. like if it was programmed for "self clean" without the door being closed, the lock would be engaged still.

Oven door willnot stay closed rightside no tension. Will not even stay open in the various postitions. The left side has tension

Your oven door has tension springs. check to see if it came off on the side with no tension. If you have a bottom drawer, pull it out. You should see the spring underneath.

Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not in the door.

You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever handle also can cause this type of condition.

If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any self cleaning modes.
