Oven Door is Not Closing - Checking the Latch

Maytag Oven is Not Closing Properly

If the oven door will not close, check to make sure the door latch is not preventing it from closing. 

  1. Open the oven door.
  2. Look at the top front of the oven frame above the gasket to verify the lock latch arm is not bent/bowed up or down, preventing the door from closing. 

Refer to the picture below; the arrow points to the correctly aligned Lock Arm Latch:
