    The top oven door doesnt close snuggly. The bottom door closes tightly. I switched doors and the problem doesnt shift to the bottom oven. Do I need new hinges for the upper cavity? I lose a lot of heat and my pizza doesn't thoroughly cook. My email is gogrizzliesnba@aol.com
    If you can help thanks. Daniel Germano

Most of these I have seen have to have the hinges and recievers replaced to get the doors to close properly and keep the light off.

SOURCE: jenn air oven stuck closed after attempt to activate self-cleaning

The lock motor may have failed. Most often, bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side as you move the door to the right,will allow you to release the lock and open the door.

SOURCE: Jenn-air JJW9630CAS - double wall oven -door won't close, even after hinges replaced

On my double oven the bottom door was not closing by at least 21/2 inches the upper door would allow the light to stay on . Upon close examination this problem appeared to be the door was too low which did not allow the gasket to seat in the oven cavity, holding the door open. new hinges and receptors did not resolve this condition.This is how I corrected this condition. 1 open the doors one at a time and lock the hinges.2 remove the doors from the receptors (be careful they are heavy) and set aside. 3 remove mounting screws holding oven in cabinet. 4 slide oven forward enough to hold onto receptor sockets on left and right sides lower and upper 5 remove receptor sockets by removing the screws in front of oven(be careful to hold on to the receptor so it doesnt fall behind oven into cabinet)7 with a center punch punch a start point 1/8 inch above the existing screw holes and drill appropriate size hole for screw THE HOLES MUST MATCH UPPER AND LOWER RECEPTOR OR THE SCREWS ON THE LOWER DOOR WILL SCRATCH THE UPPER DOOR .8 attach receptors to oven in new holes 9 slide oven back into cabinet and replace screws removed in step three 10 attach doors into receptors and push locks forward into receptor cavity attach lower door first and check for operation then upper door open slowly and check enough clearance exists for the screws on the lower door miss the upper door . If more clearance is needed elongate the holes drilled earlier(repeat steps 1 through 5) and slide receptor up on upper door. NOTE The receptors are not in a sealed space in the oven cavity and are not exposed to any heat. Periodically check the screws for tightness. After performing this procedure Both doors close all the way and the light is no longer a problem Now 20 minutes cook time MEANS 20 MINUTES COOK TIME.
HOPE THIS RESOLVES YOUR PROBLEM !!!!!

SOURCE: Jenn Air W30400 wall oven does not heat.

Turn off the power to the oven.
Remove the racks.
Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out.
Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity.
Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals.
No reading is a bad element.
Replace the element.
If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.

Jen-air electric oven jjw8530. Door will not shut all the way. Light stays on. Hindges have been replaced twice. Not hindges! Help!


Bubbcrk,

Is your door lock in the way? I think that your model has one correct? Have you checked the door light switch? If it is the switch that is keeping the door from shutting and turning the light out, you can get one fairly cheap.
Please Clarify.

Door Light Switch for your model

The lower oven light will not go off and the door seems to be slightly ajar but even if i hold the door closed and then hit the light off button, it still stays on....?


At times the door will slightly come off track.Gently lift up on your oven door and try to glide it back on evenly.

We have a 30 in prostyle electric double wall oven - the oven takes forever to preheat and the doors do not seal tightly when they are closed.


Hello- Many ovens use spring-loaded hinges to carry the weight of the door. Over time, these springs weaken or the hinge gets bent just enough to not fully close door. The door gasket can also become flat and stiff, compounding problem. Any small gap releases heated air, and oven will not heat up properly. Replacing the door springs should solve problem.- Thanks -Ed

Door will not close all the way...


This is likely one of two problems. Either the fiber gasket is getting in the way or if it is like ours one of the hinges is broken or bent. The Hinges can be replaced for about $13 a piece and is not a difficut job. On our the oven was also opening more then 90 degrees and wouldn't close more then to about 1.5 inches away from full closure.

Have a maytag super capacity plus oven i tried cleaning the oven now the door will not open and it shows f9 on the front


Had the same problem. How I fixed it, was by using a very thin, and I mean really thin, flat tip screw driver and a flash light. Unplug the stove. Use the flash light to look at the very top of the oven door. You should see in the air vent slats a silver hook. Use the screw driver to go through the vent slats and push the lock open. Now, you should be able to open your door. But we arent done yet. With the door open, plug the stove back in. Close the door and wait for the F9 to flash. Now open your door, and on the right side you should see a tiny peg sticking out on the open oven. Its for the light to come on when the oven door is open and also to let the oven know the door is ajar. Push it in and wait. The door latch circuit should reset like normal, and you will see the latch move back into its normal open position. Which resets the F9 error and allows you once again to use your oven like normal.

Am negotiating a home inspection on a house with WW30430P Jenn Air Wall Ovens; neither of the doors close. Is there a solution?


There are several models of Jenn-Air ovens that had issues with the door closing. The only solution is to replace the door hinges (unless the doors themselves are bad, you can see this if you open the door, the porcelain on the door will be bulged and cracked right where the hinge joins the door). If the doors are bad, the hinges and the interior door panels need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

One of the oven doors does not close tight so heat escapes. It is a Jenn Aire electric double wall oven model number JJW9627DDS.


Sounds like the oven door hinges have worn. If door is not obstructed in any way and will fully close when pushed but open about half a inch when released then it will be the hinges. Not sure of cost of spairs. I believe this to be a John Lewis Model. If it has a Enr no inside the door or inbetween the door hinges then I could give you price on spares
