Gas Oven would not work without door shutting all the way. New hinges fixed the problem! Removing Superba oven door was the challege. Kitchenaid has their manuals available online which you can look up using the model # available on side of oven door. It contained instructions for door removal which required two pins (one in each hinge) inserted in the hinge holes for the door to release when you pull up and out on it. Nails may be used to replace the pins but the tricky part is removing the nails from the old hinges to remove them from slots in oven door. I used a 12 inch piece of small PVC pipe as a lever, inserting the pipe on the exposed portion of the hinge. This released the nails. The oven door must be taken apart which required removal of screws on the inside face, top and bottom of oven door. It went easily back together and the problem was solved.
