The one or both of the door hinges are bent. The hinges are built into the door which must be removed to replace them. Hinges cost about $24 each. There are several web pages that mention this problem, such as:

Oven door will not fully close allowing heat to escape and light stays on

Is the door locked? if it is it won't close all the way if it was in the locked position before it was closed. like if it was programmed for "self clean" without the door being closed, the lock would be engaged still.

How to increase Dacor oven door spring tension

The hinge is most likely out of adjustment as the tension should not have to be much to hold the door closed. The pivot point and the attachment to the door must be correct however.

The hinges usually have a hole exposed when you open the door to put a nail in so the hinges will be held open to work on them.

Fridigiair FCS366SC door will not stay closed

If the model # is correct, I don't think there is much if any adjustment on the spring tension. I would double check to make sure the door is properly installed on the unit. The door is removeable and if it is not reinsalled properly or never was it will not shut right. Check your manual if you have one. Other common causes are the door gasket may be binding the door, check the gasket to make sure it isn't folded over or torn etc.. the most common thing I have seen is when the door was open someone or something put some weight on the door and the door may actually be warped. For a tech this is a lot of fun trying to figure out which part is warped.

Oven door won't stay shut and light stays on. whirlpool

How old is the oven? Did this problem just start? If this is an older oven, and it started having this problem recently, it sounds like the door is bent slightly. Enough to keep the light on. Anyone put weight on the open door, (or as I saw once, someone trip and land on an open dishwasher door, which didn't shut properly afterwards) You can get a piece of paper, put it at the top corner of the door opening, try pulling it out. Try this all around the opening, you should be able to tell where it doesn't close properly. U might be able to 'tweek' it, by trying to bend it to close tighter at the largest gap, BUT this could make it worse, or if it has a glass panel, u might break it. So, tweek at your own risk. countrycurt0

Oven door just barely closes- light stays on

put a tea towel on both sides of the door [folded] down by the hinges then close door. gently push the door close try a few times with a little pressure.
