    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 !!!!!

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

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.

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

Jenn-Air electric wall oven door opens slightly when in bake mode


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.

lendebr is right...
Same problem here on combo microwave and convection oven. The hinges are a horribly wimpy design. Jenn air has a replacement part thats helps..but the replacment hinges will do the same thing in very short order. 1 month after I fixed ours my sister in law opened the oven door and let go of the door when it was about 2/3 open and that was all it took to tweak the new hinges so the door doesnt close all the way again. i should have clued in when the girl at Jenn air sent me three sets of replacement hinges. I thought it was a mistake..turns out she knew it wasnt going to fix it permanently.
The moral is that Jenn air appliances are POS and I will not ever buy anything from the again..But I will tell everyone I possibly can not to buy anything from them.
