Amana big oven

I have an electric Amana Big Oven and was told the hinges door hinges need to be repaired as the oven door will not close flush to the oven. The hinges appear to work fine to me as the issue appears to be at the latch. The latch does not latch on to the the door. Of course my home warranty does not cover the oven door hinges. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Use a fulcrum in both hinges (dowel across the oven) to gently bend the thing back in to shape. not a lasting solution, but should be god for a few years.

On the inside of the door, there are screws on both sides a few inches above where the hinges are. These screws if loosened, will remove the entire door. Maybe the screws are just loose or need some adjustment. CAUTION! Make sure you have help because if you break the glass on the outside of the door, you will not be able to replace it because this model has been discontinued.

I have the manual for this oven so if you need further help, just respond to this and hopefully I will get an email.

Good Luck, Linda

I have a amana aocs3040ss oven and the door does not shut tightly


If it is a drop down door, then you will probably have to replace the oven door hinges, as the springs are most likely weak.
Hope this helps with your prob.

Latch does not catch on oven door.


Possible solution: The clean oven safety latch is in the latched position already. Move latch to opposite side and try closing door again. Latch not usually needed except during cleaning cycle.

Good luck,

Noise exhaust fan on my Amana AOCS3040


The exhaust fan on my oven (Aosc3040) is loud also and has always been. Just hope nothing significant brakes because this model has been discontinued and it is difficult to get parts for it. I have been told by Amana that the life expentency of this oven is 10-13 years, so don't invest in anything that is not necessary. The glass door broke on mine and I cannot get a replacement piece. My kitchen looks terrible. It is a shame because the oven works great. Linda

Try this it worked for me:
Spray the hinge assy including the springs with WD40 work the door back and forth.
Look at the interface of the door gasket to the oven chamber mine was pulled away slightly away from the frame on the bottom I used a hammer and a piece of wood to pound it back tight against the oven frame.
I changed the light switch and that did it good luck
