Oven doors will not close properly

Jenn-Air electric double wall oven Model JJW9630DDS

Oven lights stay on. Repair guy said cleaning the ovens would remedy this, but it didn't. Oven doors just don't close, and I am constantly pushing them closed in a mostly futile attempt to shut off the oven lights. Have even resorted to taping the light switches closed, but that doesn't work either.

    Bosch model shu9905 over doors would not close. Repairman came to house and looked at the oven, phoned Bosch in California who rrecommended he change the hinges. Repairman orderded two new hinges $310.00 with 3 hours labour to install at $237.00 and 1 hour for first visit $79.00... When he removed the right hinge to replace it all it was was a spring that probably cost 3$ but he said they don t sell just the spring... Am sure that spring could have been found somewhere and saved hundreds of dollars in repairs....

Most of these I have seen have to have the hinges and recievers replaced to get the doors to close properly and keep the light off.

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

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

Jenn-Air electric wall oven door opens slightly when in bake mode


you either have a bent door hinge or a broken door spring.
check the hinges by opening the door and see if it opens past 90 degrees. if it leans towards the floor then the hinges are bent.
if not then your door springs are broken off. you can check this by seeing if the door "feels" heavy when opening.
either way the door should close tight against the frame when up and the light should not come on without opening the door.

Jenn air oven stuck closed after attempt to activate self-cleaning


The lock motor may have failed. Most often, bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side as you move the door to the right,will allow you to release the lock and open the door.
