You can take a broom handle or a hammer handle, and place it in the door near the hinge and GENTLY close the door on the handle to tweak the oven door where it will meet up with the frame. Move it back and forth till the door fits. It may not work but it just might. How do I know? I delivered many appliances before I got a brain in my head and learned how to repair them. It works on refrigerators also.

I just signed up here so I could say THANK YOU! I've been living with this problem for years and never thought to look up repair solutions online (I just cranked my heat up 50 degrees when I baked), but now 30 seconds of work based on solid advice has fixed the problem!

If this forum had a kudos system you'd get all mine. Thanks again.

Found this and had my hubby try this trick. Fixed it perfect!! Saved us the money of having a repair guy out. Thanks a bunch!!!
