Question about Ovens
thank you for using fixya. The CMT-231 does not have a real mount since it is a wall oven, it only has an optional mounting which is locate on 8 spots on top (depending on the year model). to spot where the mounts are, use a wire and slide it on the sides to spot the attachments. By my personal opinion, the oven is very heavy as it is all metal, you may just use a little force to slide it out, but be careful not to damage the case while moving it.
if you have other questions, please do not hesitate to let me know, im looking forward to solving this moving issue :)

The issue with those Thermador wall oven and freestanding range doors ( especially on the freestanding "professional" line ) is the weight of the door is so great, the hinge will actually move slightly over time, other times the entire hinge will need to be replaced.
This is what I'd recommend ( also official Thermador remedy, rest assured as I am a authorized factory trained Thermador service provider ) before pronouncing the hinges need replacing though.
**This does require a somewhat involved repair, so if you don't feel completely comfortable or have any reservation to trying this, please call in an local authorized Thermador ( B/S/H/ ) service provider.**
Recommendation: Adjust the door box hinge per instructions below.
1. Pull the oven away from the wall about 12".
2. Remove the hinge box cover plates.
3. Remove the vertical side trim piece. It covers one of the screws that must be loosened.
4. Loosen the 4 screws that secure the hinge box.
5. Place a rolled up dishtowel at the bottom of the door and close the door and apply light pressure to the door while re-tightening the four screws.
See fig below
6. Re-install the hinge box covers & side trims.
7. Re-install and secure the oven.
That should do it, ( or as stated, improve the situation ) if the hinges are too far gone they will need to be replaced unfortunately.
Let me know if you require further assistance or if indeed this solved your problem.
Thank you for choosing FixYa today and good luck going forward.
