I have a GE oven that came with the house when we bought it. The broiler element went out, and while i was removing it, I leaned on the oven door to support myself and now its not closing all the way. There is roughly half an inch of the door showing when its closed. The door can be manually closed all the way, and the oven lock works to keep it closed, it just does not stay all the way closed by itself. Nothing looked bent or lose on the hinges, and It didn't look like it was catching on anything. My leaning on it was the only thing I could think of that changed. Something I saw online said if you open it just a little and try pushing the door down that it snaps back into place, but that didn't work either. Any thoughts or ideas?

thanks in advance!

You may have bent the hinges. Open the door to the broil position then push the hinge locks over to lock the hinges in place. Grab the door on each side and lift up and pull out. Lay the door on a flat surface and check the hinges.

Here's the hinges for your model in case you need them:

Both are the same hinges, you'd need to order two of them for both sides.

Old west style, that's what I get for living in Arizona.:)
