Oven is old, I know, but works flawlessly. Recently the door stop closing tightly and you can feel slight heat escape when on. The hinges look fine. I don't want to order the wrong parts. I would appreciate any help.

Here are your parts

Unfortunately it looks like most of this unit is no longer available.
Check the door gasket perhaps it has lost it's resiliency over time.

You may want to remove the door and then reinstall it.
Though usually this just fixes problems with doors that will not close at the top.

It does look like the door latch spring is adjustable.
