Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].

The problem of your oven door not closing tightly could be caused by one of several problems:
* A problem with the door hinges
* Broken oven door springs
* A problem with the gasket inside the edge of the oven door
if you look around under the handle or under the top of the stove on the front there should be thin lever. This lever is designed to lock the oven door closed tightly when you are activating the self cleaning oven feature. It is likely that someone accidentally lock the lever while the door to the oven was open. Simply find that locking lever return it to the unlocked position and your door should shut fine.
It is quite common for this problem to occur.
There is no one satisfactory explanation for this to happen, but happen it does.
DO NOT use the oven until you have it repaired.
Contact the makers or one of their repair agents to get a new door glass fitted.
Hope this helps, and in the meantime have a nice xmas, go out and let someone else do the cooking for you..
I had exactly the same problem until tonight!
I had nothing to lose so solved it by sheer brute force!
The problem is with the hinges that the door clips into they seem to get very loose. If you can manage to crimp them against metal they won't move and your door will shut properly. This is how I did it.
1. There are a couple of locks (levers) on each hinge open them up and then lift off the door
2. Ensure that there is nothing wrong with the door brackets, tighten the screws on them to ensure they don't move.
3. Fit the door back on to the hinges and with the levers still open(towards the door) push the door against the hinges which bends them tight in position (don't push too hard otherwise you will completely bend the bracket out of shape you just need to do it enough to crimp it in to place and prevent it from moving)
4. Now open the door, push the levers back closed against the hinges and then shut the door. Hopefully it will be a much tighter fit.
