I dont know how you got the door off the is a lock for each hinge lay the door down with hinges facing up.take a towel pull long piece of hinge toward you(BE CAREFUL) take other piece up and lock them together do the same to the other hinge it should then go on easy next time lock before taking off

the glass pieces should only fit back in one way, holes will only go one way , as far as the hinges, the need to be locked open in order to replace back into the unit, there is either a small hole in corner of hing that when pushed wll align with another hole in hing allowin for a thin blade screwdriver to be inserted adn hold in hte locked position,... the other way is a small locking mechanism is loacated on the top of hinge that when fully extended will lock hinge open for reattachment... you would need to REALLY PRESS that hinge to lock in place..
well there is one where u have to put a pin through the hinge to lock it in a certain place to remove and reinstall it..kinda tricky. locks it in the semi-open position. others have pieces that swivel down to lock the hinge in that position for removal and reinstall. it's not easy if you've never done it. :)
be exstreamly careful do not put your fingers near the hinge. somehow pull the hinge apart till the stay open and you may see a hole in it, put somethjing like a nail into it to prevent it from snapping closed. then put it into the slots on the oven till they are in the right position then open the door all the way and then just pull out the nails. That is if it is that type of hinge.
You have to get the tension off of the hinge and it will drop right in. The spring loaded arm on the door needs to be drawn back until you can (depending on the style) either lock the u-arm into the notch on the other side of the hinge, or put a small bolt through the aligning holes in the side of the hinge. Once you get the arm straightened out a bit and relieve the spring pressure, you should be able to sit it right in there. Be careful though, that spring is strong
It might be because when the door was completely removed ( which they do rather easily for repairs and moving) it wasn't put back properly.
I would suggest you remove the oven door and re install.
You do not remove any screws or anything like that to remove the oven doors.
When you have the oven door open squeeze each hinge and shift then both outwards it will release the door from the hinge, the hinge stays on but the door will slide off the hindge. Afterwards check the alignment and reinstall the oven door
i suspect you took the door off without locking the hinges you will have to put the hinges in the lock position before putting back. lay door on a blanket with hinges upwards. force the hinges back and bring the locking arm up to lock the hinges. this requires considerable strength
It may take two people but if you pull the hinge open there should be a small hole in it. It should of had some pins in the bag if you got it new. If you don't have them find some short pins, screws or nails that will hold the hige open so you can reinstall it. Once you get the door back on you should be able to open it all the way and take the pins out.
