Question about Jenn-Air 27 in. Electric Single Wall Oven with Multi-Mode Convection
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.
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.

See this thread:
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.

-had same issue for 9 years--now i can not get the light to go off--bought new hinges --the exact problem exists--Solved by putting a magnet in the indented cicle--it hits the switch--and light is off use a strong magnet --like new dyers use--

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.
