Does anyone have a tip to help me remove the door and hinges on a Jenn Air oven. They are the hinges with the flip-down spring-holder lever. In this case, door will not close properly and the hinge flip levers are wedged about 3/4" out from the fully closed position. The hinges themselves and the door (of course) are also not in position and the door will not close. Have tried tapping the levers in to no avail, looks like the hinges are not seated in place. Not sure what caused the problem, perhaps overextension of the door? Hinges are wedged tight, have already tried the lift and wiggle move...

Might try opening door to it's fullest extent and carefully push down on the door.  If you can those hinge arms close enough together you might be able to latch the levers in place.  If not try flex ties on both hinges to take the place of the levers.  Then try the lift and wiggle move.
