It may be a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel, such as a sticky relay.

I would suspect a sticky relay first, but the door switches should be checked.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you need your control panel assembly (smart board) repaired, we do that for $39.95 nationwide.

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!

no you probably have to change the lift gate struts/supports that are on the liftgate itself. very easy to do and they sell them at the autoparts store i would say for around 30-60 bucks

SOURCE: dhow do i remove stoves efa600H oven door hinges?

1. Open the oven door and remove the 2 screws at the side of the inner glass window 11cm above the hinges and lift off the door. Place it somewhere safe!
2. Remove the 4 screws that you can see nearest to the left and right edges of the oven with the door removed. These secure the oven to the kitchen unit.
3. Slide the oven forwards about 20cm out of the unit, being careful not to pull on the cable.
4. Each hinge is held in place by 2 screws at the side of the unit now exposed, about 18cm apart. Remove them and slide out the hinges. Reassembly is the reverse of the above.
5. Note that the hinges have no means of adjustment. If not working properly, renew them.

Door got slammed and now it does nothing


There are two or three switches operated by the door latches in a microwave oven. When the door is slammed, they can be damaged or knocked out of adjustment. If the control board thinks the door is open, it won't allow the oven to operate. It's best to let a professional check the oven and adjust or replace the affected parts. Microwaves are hazardous devices, with lethal voltages exposed when the cover is off. Also, repairs involving door repairs can cause microwave leakage if they aren't done properly. But once the switches are operating properly your oven should be fine.

You can try to take the unit down and open the cage. Look at the door safety switches and see if they also popped out of place. She might have permanently damaged the door. But don't panic just try what I just explained. Turn off all power first at the breakers.

Unplugged the stove and turn off the gas.Take the back off the oven and replace the thermostat. It's super easy. Before you buy the part call kitchen aid... this is a known problem. They will say the parts are not free and try to give you a discount. But if you continue to argue , they'll send it for free.
