I am not sure about your oven model.  I had a similar problem in my oven.  The hinges are riveted to the oven and can be fixed.

First remove the oven door - normally the door slides on to two prongs on either side and is screwed down.

 

Once the door is removed check the mechanism that holds the two prongs to the oven body.  Mine were held with stainless steel rivets that had worn out and became wobbly.  Cut the rivets and replace them with new ones.  You can get a rivet driver and the stainless steel rivets for under $20 at Home Depot. 

 

Hope this works for you.

Door will not stay closed


Hello,Sounds like the door hinge springs are weak, it will probably be necessary to replace them both.

Thanks

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

The oven door does not close properly and stays open enough to keep the light on. Whirlpool Gold, Model GR399LX60


If it has a drop down door with hinge on either side, then only solution is to replace both door hinges, as the problem is usually due to weak door springs, and they are not adjustable.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Oven door does not close properly, light stays on.


Check the hinges at the bottom corners to see if the spring is still connected and see if the hinge is wore out. The door lifts off the hinge when it's in the partially open position after loosening the screw holding the door in position on the hinge. Slide the oven out a little to access the hinge to replace or inspect.
