Question about KitchenAid Architect Series KEMC308KSS Electric Double Oven

Open Question

My KitchenAid Double Oven Model KEMC308SS0 has a door problem (I think). Both Doors swing down past the horizontal level. Doesnt look right and they both do not close all the way. Opened one iin the store and when opened the door was perfectly horizontal and it also closed nice and tight. I belive I need to replace the hinges on both sides and both doors. looks as if there was too much weight placed on the doors a some point in time.

SOURCE: kitchenaid oven door will not stay closed

I had the same problem on my parents Kitchenaid KEMS378GWH0 oven, the door would only close enough to keep the light on. They propped a chair against it to cook. My father replaced the hinges and it worked for about a week. He noticed that pulling outward on the door at the very bottom edge often allowed it to close enough to use.
After completely dismantling the oven to get access to the brackets that the hinges slide into, we found it was not broken. We decided to expand on the only near solution we had and find a way to make the bottom of the door 'push out'. Our solution was very simple. Remove the small metal plate that covers the door insulation. This revealed that the insulation is a braided hollow rope that is held in by small clips that push through holes in the front of the oven. We threaded some small metal rods about 3/8 inch in diameter into the hollow insulation pushed the clips back in to re-attach the insulation, replaced the metal cover plate.
It worked!

SOURCE: The doors on both ovens do not close tight. Are

Same on ours... one seems like it is just softly lying against the gasket without a solid tight seal... doesn't bother the cooking much, it seems, but I hate little problems like this!

Will follow this thread to see if there is an adjustment for a DIY'er, without having to make a $120 service call...

Oven door doesnt close well


I'm not familiar with your oven but most oven doors are very similar in operation. When the door doesn't close well it's generally because the hinges have been stretched/bent when the oven door has been open. To see if this is the case, open the door fully. If it's stretched the door will open past 90 degrees (slope down instead of being horizontal). The easiest way to fix this is to bend it back. Place something as a spacer between the door and the oven on both sides (like a spanner handle or anything strong and about 8mm thick) as close to the hinge as possible. Close the door against it carefully and push the door closed. Do it a little at a time and remove the spacers and try the door each time until you are happy that it closes nicely again. It should be spring loaded closed slightly.

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.

KEBS208DSS6 doors wont close compleat


Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinge location.
Carefully apply pressure on the door to push the door closed.
This will often re-set range door hinges.

Oven Doors will not stay closed all the way


I think this is a cheapest and eat way to fix your oven doors... Otherwise there are 2 spring type locks of the door that starts getting old day by day ... You have to change the pair of lock only

Kitchenaid double oven shut down!


The problem is they overheat because hot air is drawn in by the blower and overheats the outer chamber of the oven where the thermo fuse link is. The one or two fuse links are blown simple replacement but have to remove oven (two person job) remove outer shell and find it (them) in the back of the oven. Also the fuse link wire going into the main processor is probably blown.
