my latch broke while it was being cleaned. Now the oven is locked. how can I get to the lock so I can unlock and still use it.. Or how do I get to the lock so I can replace it?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

What part broke? The handle?

Door is normally opened and screws remove from under the front top of the cooktop to raise the cooktop up to acces the lock....that may prove to be difficult if your door is stuck in a locked position.

Grab the rest of the model# information.
Handle -may- not be broken but loose or the screw(s) could have fallen out.

Cathy, If you did, how did you get the latch unlocked? The same thing happened to me. The oven latch broke after self-cleaning. I have been without an oven for over a month now. Thank you, Pam
