Oven door wouldn't close completely

Parts arrived in three days and it was an easy swap of the hinges but the same problem still existed: the oven door wouldn't close completely, so the oven light stayed on and the convection wouldn't work either unless the door closed all the way. The replacement hinge's springs apparently aren't strong enough to close it and the springs aren't adjustable - which is a design flaw. I did correct the problem though, by using three dollars worth of 1" round magnets, which I placed inside the door: they stay put and are strong enough to pull the door tight.

Oven door doesn't completely close, light stays on

I replaced the hinges on the door, it wasn't that hard to do, a couple of minor things I had to overcome. But the new hinges still don't close the door completely. The light still comes on. I don't think the springs in the hinges are strong enough.

I asked for a particular part number in my order, the sales rep, said that wasn't the correct part number, and gave me a different part number. Now I'm not sure if the sales rep gave me the correct part or not.

Either way, I spent money for new hinges, and my own labor, and I still have the same problem.

I've placed calls with Jenn-air, and local technicians, but so far, do not have a solution to my problem. So overall, I'm not very happy.

Anyone got any ideas?

Oven door wouldn't fully close and light stayed on.

Remove oven door by removing chrome flat plate that holds the hinge in place (one screw at each hinge) and LIFT door off oven. There is a hole in the hinge that you can stick a small nail through to hold the hinge in the "partially open" position for easier removal and replacement of the door (I didn't know this until I received the new hinges, which have a removeable pin in the hole.) After door is off, remove three screws each, on the top and bottom of door, to remove the back half of door and expose the hinges. Remove one screw from bottom of door that holds bottom of hinge in place. Lift out hinge bottom and unhook top of hinge. Reverse process to reassemble. Remove small pins by opening oven door fully. The new hinges did solve the problem. You have to order two hinges for each door. They are NOT sold as pairs.

Oven door hinge is broken

One oven door hinge spring was broken. I ordered two hinges to complete the repair.
The repair could not have been easier. I removed the door from the oven an unscrewed the outer frame of the door from the inner door assembly. I unscrewed the old hinge assembly and replaced them with the two new hinges.
I set the door back on the oven and replaced the oven door retaining hardware.
After replacing the retaining hardware, I removed the temporary shipping pins that keep the spring assembly static. Very important: don’t remove these hinge pins until the door is on the oven an the oven retaining hardware is secured.

Oven door would not close properly. Believe this caused control panel to fail from overheating.

Parts arrived as scheduled with no problems. First I removed and repaced the 2 oven door hinges to see if this would fix the problem with the door not closing all the way (had to push door to get the oven light to go out). Since no instructions were shipped with the new hinges, I followed the information given by other customers on how they were able to change the hinges. Changing the hinges DID NOT fix the problem with the door! The new hinges did not pull the door any tighter than the old hinges. Door closure problem finally fixed by supergluing several round mangnets (Lowes) to the door which pulls the door tight when closed. I learned this trick from another customer's report (thanks for the idea!). Next I removed and replaced the failed control panel. This was the second panel to fail on this oven in the 5 years it has been installed! The first panel was replaced under warranty after approx 2 years of use. Hopefully, the magnets will keep the oven door closed and prevent overheating of the control panel which will allow this poorly designed oven to last a little longer this time!
