Our Jenn-Air electric oven door opens slgihtly when baking and the light goes on. Is this normal or does it need to be repaired? My wife is concerned that the oven is losing heat and perhaps defective.

    Jenn-Air electric wall oven door stays slightly open at all times.



    I have to put a wedge in to keep it properly closed.

    I have to put a wedge in mine too. I have been waiting for hinges and parts from Whirlpool for months.

    They tell me the parts are not available yet they are still manufacturing and selling the same model. Cannot understand how the parts are not available.

    Anyone have any ideas?

You either have a bent door hinge or a broken door spring.
check the hinges by opening the door and see if it opens past 90 degrees. if it leans towards the floor then the hinges are bent.
if not then your door springs are broken off. you can check this by seeing if the door "feels" heavy when opening.
either way the door should close tight against the frame when up and the light should not come on without opening the door.

This worked for me (or at least helped the repair guy get the right parts for my model). Had to replace both the hinges and the hinge brackets. Seems to be a defect in these Jenn-air ovens going back to about 2006. After the parts replacement, the door lines up better, but still does not feel like it really closes solidly. At least glass on the door lines up better with the glass on the control panel.

I've had to replace the 15000 btu burner 6 times since 2005 and last night the bake element broke, caught fire and ruined dinner with our dinner party watching. I called Jenn Airs hotline this morning only to here that there is nothing they can or will do to in the repair of my "Pro Jenn Air Stove and goot luck to ya"!!! Pro Jenn Air appliances are junk and would never recommend them to anyone!!! Rick

I bought a Jenn-Air 27" double wall oven a couple years ago and have had to replace the springs in both doors twice. The problem lays in the design. The doors are a heavy stainless steel causing the springs to relax over time. It is clearly a defect, and the units should be taken care of by the people at Jenn-Air.

I would start by checking the temp sensor of the bake temp settings. Pull it and its most likely bad your thermostat control, also did you ohm out the element before installing it i have bought many new bad ones as well. anything else just ask.

Have a wall mounted Jenn-air oven. Have used self-cleaning feature before. Followed step by step instructions to the end including locking the door and pushing "Enter". Went to bead expecting to wake


This is a general answer and not specific. The oven thinks is still in the cleaning mode. If it has one, push the clean button again. Set the oven to a regular bake cycle.

Ok, will it allow you to reset the clock? That has to be done before you can use the oven.

My Jenn Air oven W27200B displays F2 error any solutions? Also one of the burners would hang- one worked and the other didnt.


HI. this is a failed oven temp sensor or relay board.

Oven temp sensed; over 600F sensed by control in time of day mode, bake mode, or over 900F sensed in clean mode.


Ohm test the oven temperature sensor, if OK, change power relay board.
