Jenn-air oven door hinge problems
If your Jenn-air oven door doesn’t close or hangs unevenly and refuses to latch, it’s possible that you have issues with the hinges. Begin by replacing the hinges with new ones that match the existing ones perfectly. We’ll discuss some common problems below in this post and explain how to address them.
Defective Door Hinge
If the oven door is hanging open and not staying shut, a repair might be needed. If you’re unable to solve your problem by adding or removing washers, adjusting it so that it shuts correctly, or ordering new parts, you might have to replace the hinge.
An oven door repair for a broken hinge is relatively simple for a do-it-yourselfer with basic skills to handle this kind of kitchen project on their own.
Faulty Outer Door Glass
If the outer glass that a door is made of is broken, it can be replaced. This oven door repair requires one to remove the outer door glass from the oven.
It requires that the outer glass be taken off, laid down on a sturdy surface, and have its cavity cleaned out before installing a new one. Be sure not to break it because tempered glass isn’t supposed to be treated frivolously like an everyday plate for instance.
When disassembling this part of the oven, use eye protection, and exercise care to ensure that pieces of broken glass are not released accidentally into their eyes or other body parts will come in contact with them by chance.
Carefully remove any pieces of broken glass with a pair of needle-nose pliers so as to minimize injury occurring when this procedure is being carried out.
Why is my oven door not closing properly?
If your oven door doesn’t close properly and looks unsightly, then you should try to take care of the issue as soon as possible. You could start by looking for a new hinge for the door.
The kind you require will be very specific so make sure you buy one that is compatible with your oven professionally. Also, make sure the new hinges have screws or bolts on them to hold them in place securely.
Make sure that the hinges are firmly attached to the door and if they’re not then remove them and reattach again making sure they’re locked into place before use.
How do I remove an old Jenn Air oven door?
1. Make sure the door is in a completely closed position and that the oven light is turned on.
2. With your hands placed near each corner of the door, pull it open using both your arms whilst making sure to not use the handles for assistance in any way (this risks permanent damage to the integrity of the metal).
