I have a maytag electri range, mode # C2E9400CCE. The oven door does not close fully and the oven light stays on. When I push on the door the light will go out, but I am not totally sure that there is a good seal. Any suggestions?

Re: oven door will not shut fully
oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy
on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten
it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the
door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door
If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent,
you probably need to replace them. We recommend replacing both hinges
at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.

I assume that you have already checked for a switch on the control panel that might control the lights, if so, and that does not shut them off, then it sounds like there might be a problem with the door switch being stuck or broken and it thinks your door is still open. Hope this helps.
Is the door locked? if it is it won't close all the way if it was in the locked position before it was closed. like if it was programmed for "self clean" without the door being closed, the lock would be engaged still.
Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the
lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while
the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light
flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not
in the door.
You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the
release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever
handle also can cause this type of condition.
If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to
access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the
wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any
self cleaning modes.
