Oven door won't fully close

Heavy items stored in the oven while traveling shifted and knocked the oven door off. I struggled to get the door back on. Now the door won't fully close. I use a shock cord while cooking to hold the door closed but would much rather get it right. Please look at the door hinges and tell me if they are right. Thanks.

The metal around the hinges are a bit bent. I went to the dometic web site for drawings/support and couldn't find anything helpful as far as how to adjust the door hinges.

The hinges are also pulled slightly forward and rotated downward so they reach their closed spring limit before the door makes contact. Without the benefit of hinge adjustment instructions, I would remove the hinges, Inspect the spring mechanism, straighten up the door a bit, reinstall the hinges and rotate them as far upward and back as possible.

Does it feel like the spring is even attached? When the door is about half way closed, you should feel the spring pulling it toward the closed position.

I'd take the interior panel off the door, try closing it and see how the hinge/springs are bent, out of alignment.
I wonder if someone sells just a door?

In one of our early Airstream adventures, we had the oven door come open since we keep pots and pans in the oven. Fortunately, there was no damage to the door. Now we keep a bungee cord wrapped around the door handle and attached to the back of the stove whenever we're in transit.

I use the oven to store bread. No damage. (although I never thought about it.)
