Hello,

Carefully follow the steps below;

  1. Open the oven door and grasp the sides with one hand on each side. Lift the door up to remove it from the hinges. Set the door out of the way.
  2. Remove the range top by unscrewing the attaching bolt on the front door flange with a socket wrench. The screws are located in the upper corners, where the door closes.
  3. Slide the top of the range forward about 6 inches from the control panel. Locate the wiring harness from the range top to the control panel. Disconnect it by pushing in on the plastic tab and pulling it apart. Grasp the top panel with both hands and lift it from the stove. Set it aside in a safe place.
  4. Remove the screws on the rear edge of each side panel that connects the side to the rear of the stove. Also remove the screw on each end cap of the control with a screwdriver. Lift the side panel up, removing it from the key hole tabs on the front, and set to the side.
  5. Remove the two hex head screws that attach the hinge to the front of the oven using a socket wrench. They are located above and below the hinge.
  6. Install the new hinges by attaching them with the hex head screws.
  7. Line up the side panel with the front panel key hole and set it in place. Attach the side panel to the rear of the stove with the attaching screws and reattach the console ends with a single screw on each side.
  8. Place the top panel back on the oven. Connect the control panel wires to the range top by pushing the connector back together. Slide the top panel back into position.
  9. Secure the top panel by reattaching the screws under the front flange. Open the ends of the hinges with your finger at about a 45 degree angle. Set the door in the hinges and close the door.
  10. Reconnect the power to the range and slide the range back into its position.
I hope the above helps.......

Good luck.

Kebs208dss11 model double oven. When upper oven is on with door closed, steam can be seen escaping from top of door. Door is closed all the way. Even when putting pressure on door to make sure it is...


The first thing I'd suspect is a poorly fitting door seal / gasket. This will permit the heat inside the oven to escape. Check to be sure the the one installed is defective (cut, split, frayed, dislodged, etc.) Replacement parts:

Make sure this is the part you need before ordering.

We have a Jenn Air Wall over that the door will not close air tight. They have replaced the hinges but you can actually stick a thumb between the top part of the oven and the door. They say it's supposed...


there's a door gasket that seals it not the metal part of the door so you might be able to stick your thumb in there as long as the seal on the door is closing tightly to the frame,when you open the door it should be on a 90 degree angle,before you had new hinges put on the door, most likely the door sagged lower to the floor and didn't close properly,if you think alot of heat is escaping you could have a bad door gasket.so open the door,look at it from the side,it should look like an L or at a 90 degree angle or even up a little,if it is the hinges aren't the problem if you think to much heat is escaping,call whoever did the work for you and have them check the door seal or gasket same thing.you didn't send the model number so i don't know what seal you need,go here and watch video should be similar and you can put your model number in to find correct part

hope this helps you out,if heat is coming out with door closed and you have new hinges this is most likely what's wrong

Oven door won't quite close tightly. I can push it about another 1/4 inch to close it completely.


You need to replace the hinges in the door. Go online to a spares website and enter make and model and order new hinges. You can replace them by unhooking the door, just takes a little effort, you might need to flick back latch on hinge and lift out. Remove inner door panel, usually 4 screws and remove. then change hinges. The 2 big pieces are the hinges.

I just bought a new home and find the oven door will not close properly. It stays open about an inch with lots of heat escaping. Any ideas?


Most oven doors are equipped with spring closures as part of the hinge assembly, and are designed with a "detent" feature so that the door can be removed for cleaning without requiring tools. Usually, with the door wide open, you lift the hinged edge of the door straight up, and wiggle it straight out at the same time. When you reinstall the door, it is important that both hinges "seat" equally, and that one or the other hasn't tripped out of the detent positiion. You may have to experiment wit it several times, and a second pair of hands may be helpful. You may also find that maybe a freind will know the trick, my wife can pop the door out and back in in a flash! Goodluck Rob.

The bottom oven door does not completely shutThere is a gap from which heat escapes.The door shuts but then drops open a very little way when pressure is relinquished


When the door is open, you will see some small cross head screws near where the hinges go into the door. These should be tight. If they are, then it could be the hinge failing. Try espares for a new set of hinges, but be warned you will have to take the entire oven out of its housing and both side panels off to get the the hinges.

Oven takes forever to heat up - its a thermador double oven - me272


Hello- Check these things first-  Door seals tend to get stiff over time. This is normal. Door hinges can become loose or get bent a bit, causing door to not close tight. This little gap can allow heat to escape, causing extended pre-heat times and frequent cycling of elements. If door doesn't seem to pull shut tightly- hinges will need to be replaced. If oven appears to operate normally otherwise, this should solve problem.  Let me know if the info helps- have more if needed- 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

Neff oven door (U1661)


The door is v heavy and the hinges being right at the bottom take a lot of strain, especially when the door is in 'half open' position. Once the springs start to wear the hinges are no longer strong enough to hold the top of the door firmly closed. Our U1661 is 8 years old and we've had the hinges replaced twice under extended warranty. The second time the hinges they supplied don't hold the door in this position and it will just drop straight down if you don't support it while you open it.
