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

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

Both oven doors do not close properly. lights stay on & can't heat properly with doors not closing tight. is there an adjustment for these doors?

We have similar Jen Air double oven and with the same problem but only on the lower oven. The doors are interchangeable and the top door fits fine but the lower door will not close completely at the top. It does turn out the light but has never cooked properly. I checked with several appliance repair shops and the hinges are not adjustable, but since one door closes and our other doesn't it is not a hinge problem, just a defective design.

We let this go too long and are out of warranty so I doubt Jennair is going to do anything. I hope someone post a solution but it is clearly not problem with the henges but with the receptacle they go into.

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

The oven door (Model SMW272) does not close completely. It may need an adjustment or a new seal?

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.

Oven door won't stay tightly shut

Oven door hinges are not adjustable, assuming you have fitted the door back correctly, and it is still not closing properly, then the only solution is to replace the door hinges.

Main oven door will not close properly. Is there any adjustment for it.

This comment applies to most electric ovens that have drop down doors with hinges at the bottom.
The hinges are not adjustable, and in every case the problem is caused by one or both hinge springs being weak.
The only solution, is to replace both oven door hinges together.

My husband just figured this out.

- Follow Door removal instruction from the manual.
- There is a screw at the end of the hinge that can be adjusted.
- Adjust the screw to desired height.
