Unfortunately this is now a common problem due to appliance manufacturers getting caught up in the "bigger SUV syndrome" .
Usually just removing the wood back of the oven cabinet will give the little extra you need, but I have had to also remove the sheetrock in some instances. Just be sure there is no paper on insulation behind the oven.
Check the unit dimensions in the installation manuel before cutting to verify that the cabinet is indeed to shallow, and that the unit is not just getting hung up on something keeping it from sliding in fully. Some models are notorious for having screw heads that protrude and get snagged. Another common problem is if the floor of the oven cab is a little lower than the face of the cabinet, the bottom trim will snag on it. The third most common potential is that the electrical supply has fallen behind the unit, and is blocking it from sliding in fully.
