Replaced the hinges, the appliance never really shut 100% and after several year it got worse. Now it is perfect and we don't have any problem with heat up time of oven, used to take extra long to get to desired temp. Should have sent it back in the beginning.

Broken Outer Door Assy

I broke the door by accidentally "bumping" the lower door handle stepping off a ladder while changing light bulbs at mother-in-law's. Yes, I broke my mother-in-laws oven!

Partselect.com saved my bacon and my marriage. The repair is fairly straight forward. The door is opened about halfway to allow access to the clips on the hinges. Once the clips are down, the door just lifts right off.

The Outer door is essentially stainless steel and tempered glass laminated together. There are three screws top and bottom of the door that must be removed to allow the back of the door to be lifted out of the front.

Once you have the door separated, you must remove the heat shield behind the handle with one screw and pry the shield up a little. It is held in place with double sided sticky tape as well.

Once the heat shield is up, you can remove the two nuts holding the handle in place.

Once the handle is removed flip the door over, face up, and then just slide the glass outer assy up. It is held in place by two tabs on the bottom that slide into two holes in the front oven door assy and the now removed handle.

Remove the protective plastic taped to the new door and then just slide back into place and reassemble the door.

Fairly easy. You might need an extra set of hands to actually lift the door out of the oven and to get the two halves back together when you try to line up the screws.

This was an easy repair and the parts fit perfectly. I removed the oven door by unlatching it and sliding it off. I then used a screwdriver to take the back cover off, and took the old hinges off with the screwdriver and replaced them with the two new ones that I ordered. I replaced the back of the door panel and put the screws back in and WA LA - just slid the door back on and tightened the latches.

First, I thought we were in big trouble as our oven is in our house on a small island in the Bahamas. We thought our choices were to either take the door back to the US have it repaired and then bring it back to the island (which could take weeks) or fly a repairman in at a cost of about $1500. By my good fortune, I found Parts Select when I did a google search for Jenair Ovens and the website walked me through how to find and order the part. It was FedEx'd and within 48 hours our door was back on and we had an oven again! Thanks so much!

I tryed to remove the sensor from the oven by removing the screws inside the oven. Unfortunatly, the plug for the sensor would not reach the inside of the oven. I had to remove the oven from the wall and remove the back cover to ac3ess the sensor wiring.
After that it was a snap.

Parts no longer available so we went to several appliance stores and measured racks. We found a jenair model had racks that measured correctly got the model number and ordered the racks. There working great and now the oven looks like new. Our kitchen is a restored 1956 GE metal kitchen in Cadilac pink. Thanks guys for the fast service and very resonsble price. Was also very happy to find the racks were made in USA.

Removed the door and the screws that secured the oven to the cabinet. Pulled the oven out about four inches to provide access to the hinge brackets. Removed two screws on each bracket and removed the brackets. Reversed the process and all was well. Works like new.

oven temp wrong

Remove the oven door. Remove 3 self tappers on rear wall of oven to take off a round access panel. Pull out a pre-cut rectangle of insulation. Next I removed the 2 screws holding the sensor in place. Pulling the sensor out a bit told me I was "touching" the correct wires in the SMALL rectangular opening. The wires are not visable and 2 hands do not fit in this small opening.I looked at the NEW sensor to see the release on the sensor plug. Slip the angled needle nose into the opening and grasp the plug/release side. The plug pulled apart easily. The sensor wire pulls out with a little bit of twisting to fit it out the hole. The new plug pushes in and has to be worked down to where you can reach it. The same angled plier works to re-attach it. It takes longer to read this than to do the job. Best of luck, Al

Sensor went out after fire in oven fault code 1b11

I removed the 2 screws holding the sensor in the back of the oven and pulled the wires out. The connector got hung up in the insulation. Rather than pulling too hard, I loosened up the heating element plate and screws and pulled the whole plate out an inch or so so I could work the connector through the insulation. I forgot to shut off the power. When I put the sensor on, I got the same error. I briefly shut off the power at the breaker and turned it back on. The clock on the oven did not reset. It still didn't work. So I took the whole thing out, shut off the power, reconnected it, turned the power back on, reset the clock, and it worked! Should have turned the power off first and I wouldn't have had to do it twice.

Oven door would not close all the way, light stays on.

First I removed the oven door - with door fully open pull the clips on the hinges all the way out, then close door as far as it will go and lift the door up and off the oven.

Then I removed the three screws on each side, that hold the oven to the wooden cabinet. I then slid the oven unit out from the cabinet about 6 inches, to gain access to the hinge receptacles.

I then removed the 2 screws that secure the receptables to the oven body, and replaced the receptacles.

Reverse steps to put it back together.

Works like a charm.

first of all i was shocked at the fast delivery,two days .i just followed the instructions the other guys wrote,the only thing i might add is that the screws on the bottom of the door hinge are very tight you must have a good bit and line them up well, at first i did not think they would work but they did also you must replace the bracket as well as the hinge
