Your oven needs two new hinges on the affected door. I have seen this problem many times, the internal stops on the door bend over time and cause the door to not close all the way. They are fairly easy to replace, you just have to split the door open to repalce em. Hope this helps!

I had this problem with a Thermador wall oven. Two service calls later, new hinges and a new oven box and the door would still not close completely without a push. The service repairman said this was all he could do. A year later I took matters into my own hands. I found that the cabinet rails were not installed level (1/4" off)and square to the face of the cabinet. I reinstalled them level and the problem went away. You have to have the supports that the oven sits on level and square to the cabinet face. If it is not no hinge replacement or new oven box will help. To see if this is the problem pull the oven from the cabinet and put it on a table then see if the door operates correctly. If so the rails are not level and square.

    Make sure the oven is mounted correctly in the cabinet. I had the same problem. The rails that support the oven where not level. This caused the oven door to not completely shut. To test this take the oven out and place it on a table. Try the door now. If it closes completely that is you problem.

Either the door switch has failed or the control board is not sensing the door is closed. Try turning the power off for a couple minutes and back on. The oven is supposed to go through a diagnostic cycle when the power is applied and rotate the door latch. If this doesn't help you will probably have to call for service since it is in warranty.
I will look up your model and see if there is anything else you can do that won't void your warranty.

Oven door closes but does not fit snugly against the face of body of oven. have taken door out and put back in/on with no joy, owner of oven thinks it has been like this since new.

It is like that on the bottom, of my own door of my oven.
Since new! On the older oven I had, you lifted the door and it's hinges up and out and the door came off to make the old way of cleaning the oven easier - when you put it back on, the door would pull up tight on all sides - new ones' seem to have a gap

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all

same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.
