Hi. Our hinge spring popped last week and I would like to try to replace it myself. I see several references to the video to walk one thru this, but I cannot find it. I'd like to watch it before I attempt to remove/replace hinge myself. Can you help me find the link?
Answer Hello William. Sorry, there is no video. Here are the instructions from the manufacturer. " Oven Door Removal 1. Open oven door as wide as possible. 2. Place a 1/8" pin in the hole on the right and left door hinges. 3.Remove the screws from each side with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the lock plate from each side. 4. Raise the oven door up to a broil stop position. In this position, it will be against the 1/8" pin. 5. Grasp the door toward the top on both sides. Lift the door up and out to remove. Oven Door Hinge Replacement 1. Remove two screws from oven inner door panel that mount into the lower portion of oven door hinge assembly. 2. Grasp and lift oven door hinge assembly upward and slide down to disengage upper tabs from the door panel. 3. To reassemble the oven door, reverse the procedures for disassembling."
the door on the oven will not close completely without some encouragement, do I need to replace the hinges?
If the door is staying partially open then yes the door hinges would be the cause and need to be replaced. The door hinge part number 74008014
Not to be a pain, but the Appliance Compatibility Tool returns: "Sorry This part is not compatible." Find parts for model JMW9530CAS"
Are those parts any different from: AP4096704 and AP4096703?
Because those two are $101.24 as opposed to the $173.36 for the kit.
Answer Doug, the compatibility tool will not recognize the kit 12002111 offered for your model as it is not in the parts list. JennAir is aware of the issue of the doors not closing properly and made the kit suggested to correct their error. The hinge and receptacle in the kit are different than part numbers 74008014 and 74008015. Thanks.
