** Doesn't close properly, sometimes the light will stay on unless you push the door in and hold it a few seconds **

That could be caused by 'weak' door hinge springs or possibly a 'stiff' oven door seal.

** Any idea on how to adjust it **

If the hinge springs have lost their tension, the hinges (which come with the springs) would likely need to be replaced. The type of hinges used on your model range (see the following link) don't usually have much (if any) kind of 'adjustment' that can be made but someone would actually have to look at them to see.

** is there a way to clean behind the face glass? **

the face glass... of the oven door I assume? The door should be able to be disassembled to clean the interior of the glasses. You can see an exploded parts view of your model at the following link:

Has done it from day one. The only time it will close fully is when doing the self cleaning and the automatic door lock closes the door. It is like the hinges are not set right, the tension seems ok. When you push in the top of the door, it springs back about 1/2" did this from day one. Could it havbe been wrenched in shipping?

** Could it have been wrenched in shipping? **

That *might* be a possibility but if so, I don't know how it would be corrected.

Since it was like that from "day one", did you have it looked at under warranty??

It is still under warranty, and I submitted a question into Maytag on this, and waiting on a response. I posted this at the same time I submitted the service request.

** It is still under warranty, and I submitted a question into Maytag **

No need to 'submit a question', if the product is in warranty and is not functioning properly, just call a authorized servicer (see the following link) for service.

- Maytag Service Locator (Maytag owns Jenn-Air and provides product support)

LINK > http://www.appliance411.com/links/jump.cgi?ID=231

BTW. I suggest you call a *local* company if possible rather than someone at an 800 number (see the following link).

If it isn't mentioned in the owner's manual they wouldn't likely be able to tell you anyway. They don't usually give out any kind of service information, just the common sense stuff (eg. "make sure the oven racks are not hitting the door", etc.).

When you do eventually find out the problem, let us know if you can. Maybe it will help others whom might come across your messages.

Be careful what you do to an appliance while its under warranty. You could void any remaining warranty.

No it wouldn't but if the service depot has to take the door apart to check the hinges, they might give you a couple of minutes to wipe down the glass while the door is still apart???

My point was, doing ANY service to the appliance yourself has potential to void its warranty. But it's up to you.

I'm experiencing the same problem on my Jenn Air in wall JJW8530DDS oven door. Won't stay shut pops open about 1/2 inch light stays on, very frustrating. The door seal looks bad even though it's only 3 years old. I've ordered a new seal; however I feel that the tension on the door hinges is not sufficient. Is there any site to get additional if to see if there is a recall or work around to correct this problem.

** oven door won't stay shut **

That is a common failure on most makes of ranges and ovens.

** Jenn Air [wall oven] JJW8530DDS. Is there any site to get additional if to see if there is a recall or work around to correct this problem. **

"Recalls" occur for safety related issues only. Maytag should be able to tell you if there's any rework program for your model if you contact them with the model and serial numbers. There is no web site that provides that information AFAIK.

Very few jobs I can imagine would cost $400 to perform.

** Any suggestions on how to correct the problem? **

Besides actually looking into it to try to determine the cause the same way a technician would? I'm afraid not.

It might just have worn hinges, overstretched springs or worn hinge receivers (if used on whatever model of appliance you have). Someone is going to actually need to look into it to isolate the cause in your case.

I finally got around to pulling the unit out to look at. I found out what the problem is, but not sure if getting replacement receivers will correct it. The box that the hinges clip onto have 3 rivets pins that are used to support the door.They loosen up over time and get sloppy. I did find that there is some sort of service bulletin on this situation, but cannot locate it to get the details. It is Maytag TDC-0017B-B. Supposedly there is a replacement hinge set part #12002111, but at $44 each and not knowing for sure if it is for my oven model, I am reluctant to spring for it. Any ideas on where to find the TSB?

I temporarily fixed it by taking the hinge boxes to the work bench and smacking the pins with a setting tool, seems to have tightened the door up a bit, but the alignment of the pins is what is wrong, the top pin should be set back just a bit to provide the proper tension on the spring to keep the door closed, Either that or use a tighter spring in the hinge.

You should be able to get a copy of the service bulletin from Maytag/Whirlpool. And yes, it is applicable to Jenn-Air oven model JJW9530CAB.

You can see what is supplied in the kit at the following link:

I too have the JJW 9630DDS and am also having a problem with the bottom door not sealing properly. Definitely makes a difference in the cooking. Had this serviced a year or 2 ago but now it's a problem again. Only realize it during holidays when we use the bottom oven. Does the "fix" apply to this model number? Also, is there any internet posting available for the fix that might be used to suggest to Jenn-Air that this is a problem that they should take care of instead of having to pay 149 plus parts to fix?

Thanks very much for the great wealth of knowledge you provide.

I do not believe so but we'll also need the appliance's serial number to identify the proper parts for it.

I found what the main issue is with these hinges. the pocket is bend steel with rivets used for the hinge pins. they loosen up and cause the door to not close. I took them out and stuck them in a vise and tightened them up a bit with a hammer, but it only drew the door in a little bit, it seems as though the hinge pins need to be set back a bit at the top to the spring tension can keep the door closed. In the mean time I jammed the door switch in so I can use the convection oven and keep that darn light off. Works ok, but I want it to work RIGHT! I am going to order that kit when I get a chance at home to sit by the computer and do some shopping.

Thanks very much. My door light is off but there clearly is more space between the door and the oven frame on my bottom oven than on my top. We thought it was the gasket so we removed it temporarily but it did absolutely nothing. In fact, in the case of the bottom door as compared to the top door, there is actually slightly more space between the door and the frame at the bottom of the door where the hinge attaches to the frame. That space just gets wider as you go to the top of the door.

I have a service appointment scheduled for tomorrow but now not sure if I should cancel it if my light is in fact off and it's just spacing. What do you experts think?

Also, does anyone have a paper copy of this service bulletin or can point me to where to get it to see if it actually covers my oven? Would love to be able to push Jenn-Air into accepting some responsibility for this.

When I was researching the hinges I came across a few complaint sites and whoa were there a bunch of door issues where the entire door just fell right off when they opened it. A few had them happen right after the hinges were repaired. It seemed to affect the double ovens mostly, so just beware of that when you have it serviced. I remember when Jenn-Air meant something, now after my experiences with their cooktop and oven, I will never buy another maytag appliance again. We replaced the cooktop with a Gagenau and never looked back.

Thanks. We had these same guys to the house a year or two (probably two) ago to address the problem. This time I actually spent more time looking at the door and noticed the extra spacing at the bottom right where the door meets the hinge (again, this is in comparison to the top oven door). It only makes sense that when you extrapolate that space to the top of the door, it makes for more space at the top. If they don't reduce that space, I won't pay.

Be sure of this: if my door falls off after the service, the service company and not me will be fixing at THEIR cost or they will be in court with me in the very near future. I have sued for less.

I too am having the same issue and have been for several years. First claim they tried to adjust but did not work very long. Now it's really bad.

Serviceman called Maytag for parts and was told that parts are no longer available and so my claim is denied. HMMM I mean why do you buy the extended service plan. Also told by Jenn Air Rep. that if you buy the extended service plan, they are responsible to fix and also told that there is a consumer law that when a mfg. sells an appliance, they must have parts available to fix for 10 years. Has not been 10 years since I bought it.

I have called to talk to whomever denied my claim and of course you are not allowed to get a phone # or even an email address, all must be done inter office. So I had person on phone send an inter office email memo to whomever denied my claim, to call me. Haven't heard anything yet.

Everytime I use my oven, the moisture is now dripping off the control panel, the wood cabinets and the microwave above and onto my hard wood floors. Somebody's gonna have to fix alot of stuff if I don't get some positive results soon.

Already had the control panel on the oven replaced once, the service man tells me due to moisture that got into it.

Will let you know if I hear from the ajudication department that denied my claim.......................

** Jenn Air Oven door - Model JJW9530. Serviceman called Maytag for parts and was told that parts are no longer available **

The model number you posted is incomplete and we'd also need the unit's serial number to double check. If you post that information I will.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag *on your appliances* at the following link:

- Model Number Tag Search

LINK > www.appliance411.com/parts/tagsearch.cgi

** told that if you buy the extended service plan, they are responsible to fix [it] **

... or replace it if it can not be fixed but read your contract.

** they must have parts available to fix for 10 years **

I thought it was 7 years but don't know for certain.

** Somebody's gonna have to fix a lot of stuff if I don't get some positive results soon. **

Probably you. No warranty I know covers collateral damage, just the product itself. Maybe your home insurance?

Part number I need is 71002967 which is the over door liner if I remember correctly. I guess if I could buy the kit to fix the problem I would. Wouldn't it be just like them to only sell the part in kit form to make more money.

Sorry but that is only part of a model number. We would need the *complete* model to look up anything for it and might even need its serial number as well.

** Part number I need is 71002967 **

That part looks to have been discontinued.

** Look forward to hearing if this will correct the problem. **

Whomever is doing the service will have to determine the cause of whatever problem you're having and what is needed to correct it. It can't be done from afar unfortunately.

** [Jenn-Air model] JJW9530AAB **

71002967 is the correct part number for the inner door panel of that model. It does look to have been discontinued but have no idea if it is required to correct whatever problem you're experiencing with your oven anyway.

None of the kits mentioned in this message thread apply to your model. If there's a problem with the door hinges or hinge receivers maybe they just need to be replaced?

Just to let you know, the door kit (12002468) worked like a charm. The door closes with much better authority and is truly flush with the upper panel.

The door liner replacement took a little doing (disassembly of the older liner parts and reusing them with the new liner, e.g. insulation, silver strip reattachment, etc.) Just take it slow and pay attention to what you removed when reinstalling.

In hindsight, I suspect just the door hinge kit would have done the trick, but like I said earlier... I wanted to fix it once.

I have had this same problem with my Jenn-Air oven since we bought this house 4 months ago. Oven was put in by previous owners in about 2006. I called for service under the home warranty. They replaced the hinges, but that did nothing. Door still sticks out about a half inch and the light often stay on unless you push the door closed and let off gently. My model number is JMW9530CAB. Would this use the same kit as the JJW9530?

Thanks for the above! Unfortunately those parts are out of stock at the site you provided.

The hinges were just changed on this oven last week to no avail. I take it it is the brackets that come with the kit that make difference in the door closing properly? Do you think these are available seprately and would you have Whirlpool part numbers since the website you show does not have these part availalbe?

** Unfortunately those parts are out of stock **

It usually only takes a couple of days (the site says 5 - 6) to replenish stock... unless the manufacturer is out of them as well. In that case everyone is at the mercy of the manufacturer.

** The hinges were just changed on this oven last week to no avail. I take it it is the brackets that come with the kit that make difference in the door closing properly? **

The brackets are probably necessary as well however I don't know if the hinges supplied in the kit are different in some way than what you already had installed (which I assume are just the original ones called for by model number).

** Do you think these [brackets] are available separately **

The brackets from the kit may possibly be available separately although I do not know their part number. Try contacting Maytag/Whirlpool to see if they can tell you.

You can see the original ones used on your model at the link below. Again I do not know if the ones supplied in the kit have been upgraded in any way from the originals.

JennAir is notorious for oven door problems, and JennAir also is notorious for denying the problem exists. Regardless, after the authorized JennAir/Whirlpool repairman could not solve the problem of the doors on a wall oven not closing properly, even after replacing hinges, door gaskets, and light switches, I found the answer on the internet.

The problem is that the hinge brackets/receptacles wear out and require replacement when replacing the hinges themselves. This is a defect, because there is absolutely no justification for something as basic as a hinge bracket to wear out. Here's an article written by a repairman who does a good job explaining the problem and enabled me to figure out how to solve it: http://www.bishopandsonappliancerepair.com/2010/06/jenn-air-wall-oven-hinge-problems/.

The hinge brackets are cheap and easy to replace. I did it myself. I bought the brackets for $7 each (two for each door). Replacing them took about 30 minutes.

I purchased my Jenn Air oven (model W30400P) in 2002. From the very beginning the door would not close properly. I called for service early in 2003; the technician said this was "normal" and that the problem would resolve itself over time. Well, it did not.

Over the past few years the numbers on the "clock" became dimmer, so that I no longer could see the temperature. However, the oven itself was working (getting up to temperature) until a couple of months ago, when the control unit fried and the top element stopped working. I had a tech come out again; he told me I needed a new clock, a new controller, a new seal, and new hinges on the doors, and that all the non-hinge problems were due to the oven not closing properly. The total charges would be $1300. Since then I've also discovered the keypad isn't working properly.

I purchased all the parts and fixed it myself for $600; still waiting for the control unit, though. The new hinges DID NOT fix the door problem; they are exactly the same as the old hinges, which tells me it was a design flaw from the very beginning.

I'm angry with Jenn Air. It is excusable for a product to not work if they company fixes it, but is in inexcusable for a company to lie about a problem like this and cause numerous repairs down the road for the customer. Even now the door will not properly close, so I have purchased magnets to install at the top of the door.

Same problem for me, the door would not shut and the light would stay on. Our seal was bad, something was spilled and it was hard and crusty. Replaced that and it made it worse. I then replaced the hinges and the receiver brackets for the hinges. That *fixed* it as good as it ever was. It still doesn't close right as many have said, and it seems to be too tight at the bottom of the oven. Just looks like they didn't leave enough clearance when designing it. Anyway, it works for now and I'll address any issues down the road.

As for the door falling off, I can see how that happens after replacing the hinges. The new hinges look almost exactly the same, but they are not. If you don't also replace the hinge bracket, you will be able to pull the door off after installing it and latching the hinges in place. The new brackets have a slightly smaller opening. If you have someone replace the hinges, ensure they replace the bracket as the company suggests or don't lift up on the door...easy to see how a lazy repair person doesn't want to pull the oven out to fix right.

Overall, I'm not impressed with the design and it seems like a simple fix if they cared. I just ordered new Jenn-Air appliances for a new home and will look them over after install. Overall we have been very happy with their appliances, only issue is the door on the oven.

I just fixed the problem. Put small welding beads and reshape the bad parts. This is changing the hinge point. On the inside of the door the pivot points put small dents into the soft metal that changes the pressure on the door. My Oven door now seals better then new.

I took off my oven door, replaced the gasket, but cannot figure out how to reinstall the door.

Anybody still here? I have a duel fuel SVD48600P. Replacement hinges have identical cases, but the spring on the new hinge is about 1 inch shorter than the original. Where the coil of the spring straightens out, at bottom where it attaches to the hinge, is also longer than the original. So overall length of the spring, end to end is the same. New hinge does not draw the door tight to the oven. A used original would work better than this ‘replacement’. The little green sticker on the original had the number 1098 on it, sticker on the new has 0718 on it.
