The plastic wheel glide that the hinge runs back and forth on was worn off on one side so it was grinding and binding.
Remove storage drawer from under oven. Open the door to the special catch position and carefully lift door off the hinges - (not by the handle, hold onto both sides).
Take out three screws w/ a hex head nut driver, slip the hinge down into the hole, look under drawer area w/ flashlight and carefully unhook spring, while holding onto spring- pull old hinge out, see which hole has wear (that's the one you want to use of the three), insert new hinge all the way in and hook up spring. Pull hinge out and line up front plate w/ holes, insert 3 screws snugly. Done, awesome probably saved a 200.00 visit from the appliance guy. My husband thinks I'm amazing!
