Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].

SOURCE: oven door not closing
I was having the same problem with my frigidaire oven door. I was thinking that it was the seal getting in the way at first, but then I realized that the hinges needed to be repositioned. I wasn't in the mood for that kind of reengineering, so I came up with a better solution. Magnets. Not those **** fridge magnets either. Neodymium magnets. Place them on the upper part of the inside of the door, near the door lock (outside of the seal). You'll only need about three or four depending on the size. (get the fatest ones you can). If you know a computer geek you might be able to get a few free magnets from an old hard drive. I used five of these and I can just about pull the oven out of it's place while trying to open the door. The onhly problem is that heat destroys magnets and I can't say how long these will last because I just figured this out tonight.
