    the lower oven door on my jenn-air double oven does not close completely causing the light to stay on and the annoying buzzer to sound

  • Anonymous Jan 01, 2009

    Both lower and upper oven doors of my Jenn-Air double wall oven (JJW9827DDS) will not close all of the way. Heat escapes while cooking and the light stays on all of the time. When you push it closed tight, it just springs back open. I have had the hinge springs replaced twice on this unit. It works for a while, then the problem returns. How can I fix this problem permenantly?

Cannot put the oven door back on

Hi Elspeth:
Don't know what make or model you are dealing with, but from personal experience, here's what I dealt with.
- Oven door is mounted on spring loaded hinges. That's what keeps it in the closed position.
- To remove the door, it has to be fully opened, then lifted from close to the hinges, and slid out.
- To put the door back on, the hinges have to be in the "door open" position. Since they are spring loaded this can be tricky getting them into position.
- It's easier with a helper, one on each side....... slide the hinge legs into the slots. You'll need to lift the door slightly towards the closed position to allow the hinge legs to engage in the secure or latched position.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

I can't close the oven door

Hi Jorgey,
Either there's something inside that's stopping it closing properly or the hinges have been deformed and are not working correctly. So clear out the oven and try door. Otherwise inspect hinges carefully for deformation. If necessary remove door and hinges. Carefully try to reshape the hinges. If this fails you need new hinges

Oven door falls open and will not close tight on my Jenn-air Single oven Model #SVE47100w

Hi,

The hinges and receivers would need to be replaced on this. The hinges are part number 71003351 you need 2, they go inside the door, so the door would need disassembled.

The receivers (hinge receptacles)are part number 71002206 you need 2 also, these go on the side of the oven. You will need to pull the oven out a few inches to gain access to these

Bosch HBL 645 oven door won't close all the way

I am afraid that the door hinges are non adjustable, and the only solution is to replace them as a pair.
There should be some kind of latch mechanism at the end of the hinge
where it is fastened to the door to compress the hinge to enable you to remove them.
Hope this helps.

I have a Neff U1420 double oven and the hinges on the main oven do not close the door fully. I have read that it is possible to correct this problem by putting washers under the screw of the hinges but I...

Hi.
If the door does not close properly then the fault is a faliure in the door hinge springs. Sorry but using washers will not cure the problem..

The only way is to replace the two door hinges. You may NOT need to replace the hinge backs.

If you would like to email me the full model number (numbers after U1420) then i can source the part numbers for you.

regards

Thermador oven door won't close all the way - seems like the seal is holding it open. I can press and hold it closed, but if I release, it pops out. The oven light stays on all the time. Model smw272

Have exactly the same situation. All the solutions I have seen talk about replacing the hinges or seal. But people report the same thing happens a month later. Looking hard at the door what it needs is something to pull it right at the top. So I installed a rare earth magnet from www.kjmagnetics.com I used part number BX884DCS which costs $4. It mounts with a couple of screws and I put it on the door a couple of inches down from the top.
Its possible that heat from the oven will kill the magnet over time but for $4 I can replace it for a lot less than hinges and it works great. The door closes more securely than it ever did when the oven was new.
Hope this helps.

Oven door does not close

I had the same problem. The first time the Tech. came out, put a new hinge in and it held until Nov. 07. ( 8 months ). Then the left hinge brakes when I opend the door and it crashes to the floor. Bending the right hinge and the metal doorliner. Jan.7,08 everything was fixed. On 1/11 after no more then 10 openings & closings the hinge broke again. This time I heard the crack of the braking metal after opening the door 2 inches. It now sits in my kitchen propped-up with a stick, waiting for the repairman. I am sorry I have no solution , but there must be a problem with the hinges. I forgot to tell you that it started with a door that did not close, like yours.
