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: Westinghouse oven does not close fully.can door

If it has a drop down door, the only solution is to replace both door hinges, if it is hinged on one side, then the door catch, or door striker could be worn, these are easily replaced,
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: The oven door (Model SMW272) does not close

Generally speaking, if a oven door does not close properly, and it is a drop down door, then it usually due to weak springs in the hinges.
There is no adjustment provided, so the only solutiom is to replace both door hinges.
Please rate my nsolution.
Thankyou.

Cannot put the oven door back on


Hi Elspeth:
Don't know what make or model you are dealing with, but from personal experience, here's what I dealt with.
- Oven door is mounted on spring loaded hinges. That's what keeps it in the closed position.
- To remove the door, it has to be fully opened, then lifted from close to the hinges, and slid out.
- To put the door back on, the hinges have to be in the "door open" position. Since they are spring loaded this can be tricky getting them into position.
- It's easier with a helper, one on each side....... slide the hinge legs into the slots. You'll need to lift the door slightly towards the closed position to allow the hinge legs to engage in the secure or latched position.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

I need to replace the hinge receptacles on a Jenn-air wall oven (WW30430PC). How do I access those parts?


The only way to replace the hinge receptacles is to pull the oven out of the opening. If you need parts you can get them on the link below. Also if you call the link below they will walk you through on how to replace.

I have preloaded the replacement hinge, but it appears that to remove the old hinge it must be unloaded. If that is true, how do you load the new hinge while it is on the door?


Ovens come in many varieties including freestanding units and stacked models that are inserted into a wall. Kitchen oven units that get a lot of use or are getting old may have problems develop, such as a loose or squeaky door which may require replacing the hinges. You can replace the hinges on the door to your oven by first removing the door from the rest of the oven.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Screwdriver
  1. Step 1 Open the oven door and examine the hinges to see how the they are secured to the door. Some oven doors slide into the hinge assembly or have a locking mechanism that secures the door to a latch on the main unit.
  2. Step 2 Remove the door from the oven by disengaging the locking mechanism and then pull the oven door out. You may need to release a catch on the door or remove a pin from a hole in the hinge.
  3. Step 3 Place the door on a flat surface such as a table or the floor.
  4. Step 4 Remove the screws that hold the sections of the door together to access the hinges.
  5. Step 5 Remove the hinges from the door. The hinges may be attached to the door with screws or they may be held in place when the door sections are tightened or secured.
  6. Step 6 Insert the new hinges into the door and secure them with the screwdriver or place the section of door back on. Tighten all of the screws securing the sections together.
  7. Step 7 Place the oven door back into place by sliding it on the same way that it came off.

My oven door doesn't close completely. Is there a way to adjust the door?


Hi There
I found this for to read so you can fix your door.I hope this will help you.Let me know how it goes.
The oven door won't close If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up. If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. We recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

I have a wall oven, a St George single oven. The


Depending on model-
Put the door at an opening of about 100mm. You should feel an indent for thecorect position.
You will probably need 2 people, 1 each side,
Slide the door upward at an angle same as hinge, It will slide off the hinge.

If the hinge is broken, and they usually break inside the wall of the oven, it will be very difficult to slide it off the broken hinge.

Cant get the oven door back on


Use a wrench to lower the hinge arms down. There is a hole in the arm that you can put a nail into through to the frame of the oven/ This should leave the arm in an outward position. Do this on both sides of the oven, or both hinges
Pick up the door, and slide the door onto the arms until they stop.
Press down on the top end of the door lightly so that you may remove the nails inserted above.
Lift the door to close. If you didn't slide the door onto the hinge pieces far enough, then repeat the procedure.

Oven door not closing correctly


I had the same type of problem. I unhinged the door then disassembled the door (it's really quite easy)
after you take all the TORX screws out the everything comes apart! Don't worry about the screws putting them back is a snap! Now that you have the door apart take the door hinges out of the inner door plate.
If you look at then closely they will have a slight bend in them. Pay attention to how they would have been positioned on the door! Simply bend them slightly I used the edge of a step! My door now shuts completely! I hope this info helps many of you having the same problem! If you take the time it really is amazing how easy it is to solve the door issue! Thanks to my buddy RON.

DOOR PROBLEM


I am not sure about your oven model.  I had a similar problem in my oven.  The hinges are riveted to the oven and can be fixed.

First remove the oven door - normally the door slides on to two prongs on either side and is screwed down.

 

Once the door is removed check the mechanism that holds the two prongs to the oven body.  Mine were held with stainless steel rivets that had worn out and became wobbly.  Cut the rivets and replace them with new ones.  You can get a rivet driver and the stainless steel rivets for under $20 at Home Depot. 

 

Hope this works for you.
