Welcome to JustAnswer. I would like to try to help you. I am an expert from Germany working with language translation program seems to be this regarding I ask for your understanding. Telephone service is provided automatically by the system. Just ignore it. I cannot make a phone call.

We are manufacturer independent experts who answer technical questions.

It could be that the door lock is defective or the lever is broken so that it can no longer be intrigued. I will add a link with a video line here so you can go there and see where you can open the door in case of emergency. It is a bit complicated but feasible.

I'm asking you to be a little patient. We've asked too many questions. That's why it sometimes takes time to answer.

Do you have more questions? I'm waiting to hear back. Greetings Erdal

No we watched the video and tried a credit card. We also pulled the emergency handle down. The Door handle seems loose.

Any further thoughts on how we can open this door

There is also available with a string trick system. Here is a video instruction.

If it should not open then the door or door contact switch is so defective that it cannot be opened. It must be opened by force and repaired immediately if necessary. I recommend you first try to watch the video instructions again. If it does not work then you really need a technician. Do you have any questions?
