SOURCE: 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.

Hi. Yes, you will need to replace hinges, and possibly the hinge guides located inside the cookere.

SOURCE: Door locked after cancelling self clean option

Open the door. In the upper left corner, press and hold the door switch (the one that controls the inside light). Start a self clean cycle and wait for lock motor to engage. When the lock stops moving it should be in the unlocked position. Press cancel to stop the self clean.

If you need more assistance let me know.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Jenn-air JJW9630CAS - double wall oven -door won't close, even after hinges replaced

On my double oven the bottom door was not closing by at least 21/2 inches the upper door would allow the light to stay on . Upon close examination this problem appeared to be the door was too low which did not allow the gasket to seat in the oven cavity, holding the door open. new hinges and receptors did not resolve this condition.This is how I corrected this condition. 1 open the doors one at a time and lock the hinges.2 remove the doors from the receptors (be careful they are heavy) and set aside. 3 remove mounting screws holding oven in cabinet. 4 slide oven forward enough to hold onto receptor sockets on left and right sides lower and upper 5 remove receptor sockets by removing the screws in front of oven(be careful to hold on to the receptor so it doesnt fall behind oven into cabinet)7 with a center punch punch a start point 1/8 inch above the existing screw holes and drill appropriate size hole for screw THE HOLES MUST MATCH UPPER AND LOWER RECEPTOR OR THE SCREWS ON THE LOWER DOOR WILL SCRATCH THE UPPER DOOR .8 attach receptors to oven in new holes 9 slide oven back into cabinet and replace screws removed in step three 10 attach doors into receptors and push locks forward into receptor cavity attach lower door first and check for operation then upper door open slowly and check enough clearance exists for the screws on the lower door miss the upper door . If more clearance is needed elongate the holes drilled earlier(repeat steps 1 through 5) and slide receptor up on upper door. NOTE The receptors are not in a sealed space in the oven cavity and are not exposed to any heat. Periodically check the screws for tightness. After performing this procedure Both doors close all the way and the light is no longer a problem Now 20 minutes cook time MEANS 20 MINUTES COOK TIME.
HOPE THIS RESOLVES YOUR PROBLEM !!!!!

How to turn off the oven light when door is closed. My stove is 15 years old


  1. Check all the screws behind the oven door gasket - in place and tight.
  2. Check that the door gasket is installed correctly and with all clips locked into place.
  3. Check the center hinge receiver, all screws are in place for the front chassis support
  4. Check the underside of the range below the center hinge receiver and make sure all 4 screws are tight and in place.
  5. Check that the door hinges are installed correctly & both mounting screws are secure.
  6. Check that the hinge retainers are closed and not blocked by the hinge cover.
  7. Check the top of door liner with a straight edge - make sure the liner is not bowed more than the width of a dime.
  8. Loosen the door panel top screws to a "relaxed" state. Open and close the door and retighten screws.
  9. Check the light/latch switch assembly - if out of position or stuck in incorrect position.
  10. If everything checks out, and oven light still stays on, replace hinges.

How do you remove the door from a frigidaire gallery series double wall oven(self cleaning)?


Open the door and look at the hinges the connect the oven door to the oven body, on each side you will notice a piece that can be moved back and forth without moving the door, roll each side toward the oven body this should be the locked position, now try to close the door and you will notice the hinges lift up. At this time you need to pull up and push forward on the door and both hinges will come out.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

I removed the oven door and took out the hinge to clean. When I tried to put the hinge and oven door back the hinge will not close it is stuck. How do I unlock or hook the hinge so my oven door closesI


You will have to pull the oven dorr up and out again, it might be a little hard to pull but the door didn't went in straight and it's preventing the hinge from closing. go to repairclinic.com for an ilustration on how the door and hinges fit in place.

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all


same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Oven Professional Series, I don't have the model number. In trying to self clean my oven, I accidentally pressed something that engaged the oven door lock. Now I can't close...


If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up.

If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. I recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.

Oven door will not close completely stays open about 1/4 inch


Hinges may need to be replaced. Rule of thumb, if one is changed, change the other as well. Also try WD40 open and close continuously, it may be stuck. But you will eventually have to change the hinges. Good luck.

Last year, my 8 year old Whirlpool oven door would not stay closed all the way. I ordered new hinges, replaced them and it was great for 11 months. Still under warranty, I replaced them a second time......


Are you replacing the hinge guides as well? The hinge is usually only one half of the problem. When you remove the door, look into where the upper long arm of the hinge resided. You will see a little runner wheel. Touch it with a thin screw driver and see if the wheel feels loose. I'll bet at least one of them is!

Oven door staying open about 1 inch


your going to have to replace both the door hinges, since they have been over extended past ninety degrees they are not able to close to ninety degrees. that is the only repair, i would also look closely at the inner door panel and make sure that is not "crowned" or bent from the force that might also need replacing

Trying to remove front doors from Frigidaire Double oven.


Open the door fully and with a small screw driver, look closely at the hinge area on the oven cavity. There you will see a small lever that will rotate down and lock the door in place. Once in the locked position, begin closing door, you will feel the door 'catch' then lift the door off of the oven.
The door can now be disassembled and cleaned.
