Oven door adjustment

Jenn Air Model JDS8850BDW
Hi, is there any oven door adjustment? There is about 1/8" gap between the door gasket and the upper frame when the door is closed. It closes fully when I push on the door. So the hinges need to move about 3/8" outwards to adjust the door parallel to the frame. (The gasket did not wear in after a few years as suggested in the manual). Thanks, Danigo

Most oven doors have tension adjustments via spring movement from notch to notch. Take a flashlight and look down into the hinge hole. You should see your spring and its attachment point. JennAir may be different. You may need to pull the oven from the wall slightly to access the springs.

When Chandler says to adjust the springs, this means hinges will compress door gasket a little more and maybe straighten out the door.
As far as moving the bottom of door outwards, using some type of adjustment, there is no such adjustment. Hinges are in a fixed position and need to be in position for door to operate properly.
