This is a relatively easy fix however you will need to remove the door and it is heavy!
Start by opening the door completely and engage the small "locks" that are at the base of the hinge. This will ensure that the spring loaded hinges do not "spring open" when you remove the door. You then will need to remove the hinges from the door via a series of phillips head screws that hold the hinge assembly in place. The new hinges must be "preloaded" into the Open position using a vise or some means of holding the hinge in place while you use a small section of pipe to provide leverage needed to open the hinge so that the Locks can be engaged.
Once the new hinges are "pre-loaded" and the locks are engaged, you can reverse the procedure to re-install the hinges into the door and re-install the door.
The hinges are commercially avaialble from Applianceparts.com

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.
