Door stays open about 2 inches


Replacing the hinges is risky because you need to be 100% sure the new hinges go back in the exact spot the old ones were.

Otherwise, there might be leakage, which can lead to arcing and possible fire.

The exploded view / parts list is here.

If the hinges are not secure, the door may slip, which can cause leakage or failure to operate correctly.

Also, there is a bulletin about these regarding the door locking _closed_ but maybe it's applicable in this case, too.

Here's the text of the bulletin:

KitchenAid & Whirlpool Electric Wall Ovens And Dual Fuel Range

MODELS: KEBC101K, KEBC107K, KEBC141K, KEBC147K, KEBC171K, KEBC177K, KEBC206K, KEBC207K, KEBC208K, KEBC247K, KEBC276K, KEBC277K, KEBC278K, YKEBC107K, YKEBC177K, YKEBC208K, YKEBC278K GBD277PD, GBD307PD, YGBD307PD, GMC275PD, GMC305PD, RBD245PD, RBD275PD, RBD276PD, RBD305PD, RBD306PD, RBD307PD, AND KDRP407HS

PRODUCTS BUILT BETWEEN CODE DATES: XP22 - XP29

CONCERN: Error Code "F5 E1" or "F5 E7" (door latch not unlocking the door after self-clean cycle).

CAUSE: This problem is caused by defective material in the core of the solenoid on the door latch. The solenoid works properly at normal temperatures, and at the beginning of a self-clean cycle. However, when heated, the plastic core binds the metal plunger, and will not allow it to unlock at the end of a cycle. Once cooled, the solenoid will again work properly. When a technician inspects the solenoid while it is cool, it will function normally.
SOLUTION: Replace the solenoid with service solenoid #4452224.

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all


same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.

Oven door will not stay closed so temperature does not stay constant


either the seal,or spring device.
some doors come off,if you open partially and lift it,it might come off,and you can adjust it by repositioning it slightly?

Oven door will not close completely stays open about 1/4 inch


Hinges may need to be replaced. Rule of thumb, if one is changed, change the other as well. Also try WD40 open and close continuously, it may be stuck. But you will eventually have to change the hinges. Good luck.

Oven door stays slightly open


The unit may be out of plumb ( square to the floor ). I suggest you get a level and make sure the stove/oven is level and if it's not, there are some levelers ( where legs would be on the bottom ) that can be adjusted with needle nose pliers or a cresent wrench. If this doesn'e work, you may have some hinges sprung and need to replace them. Good Luck
