    I have the same problem. When the oven is turned on, there is a gap on the top and on the sides. The gap is wiide enough where the oven light won't go out at times. Any solution to this?

    I am having the same problem.  The door will not shut tight and the light comes on.  I had service come out once.  NO luck!  Any solutions?? Ideas? Thoughts??

    same problem exactly, oven door will not close completely and there is a gap at the top and the oven light stays on alot. We tried to work on the hinges, but can't figure anything out. Had a service tech come out and the problem is still there.

    My Jenn-Air 30" electric double wall oven JJW9830EEB does not heat properly either. Unit has had hinges replaced twice with no improvement. Service tech wanted to replace entire door but warranty company claims they can't find parts anywhere for this in-production model (or are just trying to dodge the problem). Bottom unit heats better than top, but still takes way too long to heat. 1) any suggestion on where to get replacement parts and competent service? 2) overall, this model totally sucks.

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.

Same issue here, wall oven microwave combo. The first time the oven door is not supported until fully opened it will tweak the hinge assembly so the door does not close. It only takes one time. Jenn air sent me three sets of hinges too. Sister in law opened the door part way and let go after first fix and it was tweaked again. Jenn air products are bad. Save yourself money and headache and don\'t buy from them.

this should have been a class action suit.

I'm on my 3rd Jenn-air down draft range and all had a similar problem, always right before or right after the warranty expired. This time it's the control panel, which is on back order from the factory until after January 1st. There'll be no holiday cooking at my house this year. I'll never buy Jenn-Air again!

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
