    I have the same oven and the door won't stay closed on mine either. I know 2 other people who complained about the same issue.

    Now the clock and temperature light is so dim you can't read it!!!

    I would never buy this product!

    same problem. door will not stay closed. !!!!

    I have the same problem with the door and light on a 5 yr old oven. Repair tech says the light is out because of heat escaping from the open oven door. This is clearly a defective design. This should have been recalled.

    I had the hinges replaced on my Jenn-Air oven door. A few  months later, same problem, not closing all the way. While trying to hold the door closed, I accidently lifted the handle and the whole door came off. Now I can't  get it back on, no matter what I try. Does anybody know how to get the door back on?

For k marsh the hinges must be in the locked position to slide into the receptor. You will probably have to remove the hinge from the door. Two screws hold the hinge to the door one underneath the door and one inside the door Once the hinge is removed from the door it can be inserted into the receptor and pulled down to a partial open position then you can move the "lock" forward and hold the hinge in an open position. Without removing the lock reinstall the hinge in the door with the previously removed screws
You will have to do this to both hinges. The hinges will now have the clearance you need to insert into receptor.

Do you mean the service engineer replaced the hinges?
If so call him again and tell him he didn't fix it. The service engineer should come again and fix it for free if there's any justice in this world.

Oven door falls open and will not close tight on my Jenn-air Single oven Model #SVE47100w


The hinges and receivers would need to be replaced on this. The hinges are part number 71003351 you need 2, they go inside the door, so the door would need disassembled.

The receivers (hinge receptacles)are part number 71002206 you need 2 also, these go on the side of the oven. You will need to pull the oven out a few inches to gain access to these

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

My oven Door fell off. it is a Jenn-Air JJW9530C

This is a known issue. The model number is JJW9530C. I have been browsing the internet trying to find stronger hinges but with no luck. It seems there are a lot of unhappy Jenn air owners. You are correct in your assumption that the door is to heavy for the hinges. I will post the websites for your review

Maybe if I could see the hinge I could fabricate a stronger stainless steel one for you

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.

Oven door does not close

I had the same problem. The first time the Tech. came out, put a new hinge in and it held until Nov. 07. ( 8 months ). Then the left hinge brakes when I opend the door and it crashes to the floor. Bending the right hinge and the metal doorliner. Jan.7,08 everything was fixed. On 1/11 after no more then 10 openings & closings the hinge broke again. This time I heard the crack of the braking metal after opening the door 2 inches. It now sits in my kitchen propped-up with a stick, waiting for the repairman. I am sorry I have no solution , but there must be a problem with the hinges. I forgot to tell you that it started with a door that did not close, like yours.
