Hi gabe1981,

I can see only two possibilities in such situation: slightly bend oven door frame or dislodged and/or damaged hinge receivers.

Gene.

Gene, Thank you for the reply ... Funny story but I way over thought this one ... The hinges and recieving brackets were still good ... I couldnt tell at first but the cleaning lady cleaned the oven the day before and removed the bottom plate ... when she put it back in she didnt push it back in place ... at a glance you couldnt tell it was out of place ... It sat out just far enough to jam the door ... Again Thank you for all your help

To put the door back properly, you must move the hing lock tab away from the door, then, with a screwdriver, pull the door hing back, then slip the door lock tab in place to lock the hing in place, then you can put the door back in properly. The owners manual helps for this.
