Hello,

I have a Jenn Air dual oven model number JJW9830DDP serial number 10485503CV (series 10). Both of the doors do not close all the way, it is hard to get the oven lights to stay off and neither oven will heat up like they should. I'm told that I need new door hinges. When I go out to look for hinges they show that the hinges for this oven (a series 10) are NLA. Most places show that you can buy hinges for a series 17. Will these work for this oven?

How hard is it to change out the hinges and where can I find the best information on doing this?

Thanks,

Mike

On that model and series both the hinges and hinge receiver receptacles must be replaced together. Two of each come together in a service kit (see the following link).

- Upgraded Hinge and Receptacle Kit (2 ea.)

If both doors suffer the same problem, 2 upgrade kits will be required.

Dan,

Thanks for the link, is this something that could be changed out by a person with a decent amount of mechanical experience or do you need special tools?

Thanks again,

Mike

I don't believe any special tools should be required, probably just a screwdriver. It also shouldn't require any specialized training to accomplish.

BTW. The service kit should come with some installation instructions as well.

Dan,

I ordered the kits you had listed in your reply on Monday and they arrived last night. I changed out both doors and that fixed the problem. It took about 20 minutes per door and was not difficult at all. The ovens now get up to 350 degrees in just over 10 minutes where before they wouldn't get above 220 no matter how long you waited!

Thanks for your help!!
