This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

SOURCE: Dacor oven light bulb
Yeah, it's a rip-off isn't it? Been there. :-( Find the bulb part number or electrical values and search eBay. I think this is what you're looking for:
G4 halogen 12v 10w, dacor part 86364.
A search right now shows multiple vendors offering 10-piece packs for $7.00 including shipping. I'm about to order a set myself.

unplug or turn off breaker to stove for 10 minutes...then try to gently open.....the oven has to be completely cool before it will unlock....when cleaning is done release lock before turning cleaning off
