Oven door is travelling too far on opening (and inner glass door slides out) and does not close tightly thus losing a lot of heat, is there a way to adjust the hinges, the instructions do not mention this. thanks

Open door to about 15~20 degree angle, pull up on door and totally remove from stove. Lay face down on flat surface. Now can access all screws to separate the inner and outer panels and to replace the glass. To return to stove, use locking pliers to pull the door hinge stubs out to their 15 degree open position, slide door on and close.
If glass not broken, just can't see through, no need to remove door or glass. Use glass cooktop cleaner, apply and let soak 3 minutes, then use new single edge razor in holder to shave off the baked on grease. May have to repeat 3x then switch to glass cleaner and clean again 3x, should be quite clean and clear unless seal has failed on the double pane thermal glass and internally obscured in which case the only cure is to replace the glass... return to paragraph 1.
This can be quite a difficult issue to deal with.. This is really a job for a pro technician, honestly. But if you should choose to try it. Remove the oven door from machine, by opening door slightly and looking at hinges you should be able to be able to slide a small arm on the hinge that locks the hinge and stops the door from closing. You then hold door and move toward closing it and lever the hinges out of their space and carefully place door on floor. Then you have to disassemble the door and remove glass. The video below IS NOT EXACT but will help you with what your up against.
The last person who used the oven door as a shelf to rest a heavy roast has bent the bracket the hinges go in to. A piece of dowel (broomstick) cut to the width of the oven and placed as a fulcrum in the hinges, gentle pressure when almost closed can bend it back into position, but that wont last. >> Replace front frame or retention brackets
Strangely enough I had exactly the same problem but today managed to fit the new inner glass and door panels without any problems, here is how.
YOU NEED 2 PEOPLE FOR THIS STEP.
Open the door, at the top are 2 large plastics flat head screws, undo these making sure your helper is holding the door securely or itll fall on the floor, te door will unhook once the screws are fully undone
Once off you can close the microwave back up.
Now there are two screws, one in each top corner holding a funny looking plastic wing shape that slides into the inner door. They have a star screw head. Undo both of these and remove the plastic wings. When you remove these the panel underneath will try to fall off so be prepared to catch it, along with the plastic screws undone in step 1. This now unhooks like the main door did.
From here you'll be able to see the back of the inner glass. This is held in by a mesh at the back and about 15 screws, star headed again. you can simply remove all of these, that will release the front panel over the inner glass, again, you might want someone to hold the door open so the panel does not drop when you remove the last screws.
Thats it as far as taking the microwave apart. put your new glass in, remembering to make sure the rubber seal is put back between the glass and inner door.
Simply reverse the process.
It took me approximately 1 hour and I am by no means a DIY person.
