Oven door closure

I have a Jenn-Air wall oven. Model W130W
The door no longer closes properly. It also drops beyond the level spot when open. I'm told it is probably the hinges. (?) Also, if you think it's them how does one change them out?

I had the same problem, the door will come off by opening it partially and lifting it up off the hinge brackets. Be careful, because the brackets are spring loaded and will snap shut when the door is removed. You will find a hinge pin with a spring clip at the bottom of the hinge. It's likely that the spring clip has come off of one of the hinges and the pin fell out. You can find the drawings and part number(s) on the "partsdirect" website using your model number, and even order them there.

My old Jenn-Air W230 wall oven only gets to "warm" in the bake position - even at a temperature setting at 500 degrees. However the broil function works well. Could the problem be a bad thermostat o


the oven sensor could be bad,its a small rod inside the oven cavity near the top,or you could have a bake element with a "hot-spot" in it that can no longer pass enough current to properly heat the oven to the correct temperature setting(most elements with a hot spot will show a discolored area on the element where its been overly hot)this is the "hot-spot" it will soon break apart there

Jen-air electric oven jjw8530. Door will not shut all the way. Light stays on. Hindges have been replaced twice. Not hindges! Help!


Bubbcrk,

Is your door lock in the way? I think that your model has one correct? Have you checked the door light switch? If it is the switch that is keeping the door from shutting and turning the light out, you can get one fairly cheap.
Please Clarify.

Door Light Switch for your model

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.

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.

Oven doors will not close properly


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.

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.
