Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your appliance?

Expert:  JamesI replied 2 days ago.

Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this stage, but happy to elaborate once you provide the addition info.
For now I hope you may find this initial guidance useful.

If the oven will not open it sounds like it may have done a pyro clean, leave the power turned off for 1 hour turn it back on and after setting the clock then try and open it and the lock should have disengaged.

Should this not work the next step would be to get an engineer in, to use a special tool to unlock the door without breaking the hinge assembly.

You may wish to use the firm here for such a repair.
