Hi Michael and Susan. For the spring, you need to take the front off the stove. You will see two springs threaded onto two rods, held in place by a washer and nut. Remove the nut and replace the spring.
I, by the way, sell the springs, and have the timer and clock knob. Please check out my business. rmrcompany.net.

MFG Part Number:WB9K4 if spring is red -MFG Number WB9K5 if spring is black with a spot of blue paint. To access the spring remove the storage drawer. One end attaches to the hinge the other to a slotted hook. Check the opp. side spring to see how it is hooked up.
There are two pieces of metal that are inserted into the hinge slots on the body of the oven, the spring (upper) and the hinge. Before you can re-install the door, you have to clip these two together by laying the door handle side down and then using all of your body weight to push down on the spring arm, using gloves and a wadded up rag to soften the impact to your hands, and then clip the two pieces of metal together using the little hinged clip on the hinge piece and the slot on the spring piece. When you've clipped these together on both sides, lift the door and insert the metal pieces into the two respective metal slots on either side of the oven body. when they're in as far as you can push them, use a flat edged screwdriver to release the clip and close the door. Good luck, it may take a couple of tries and be careful of the spring, because it can snap back and hurt you if the clip comes off prematurely.
If you merely lifted it up off the two spring loaded supports, you should only need to slide it back into the bottom of the door...You may need to use pliers to move the supports into a horizontal position (normallaly open position). If you actually removed the supports from the springs...it will be very hard to replace, because the springs are hidden.
Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.
Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?
could be the peg that engages into a double roller set inside the door. this peg is usually adjustable. try screwing it out a bit. also check that the spring tensioned roller is ok - these commonly fail
