I finally ignored the poorly-written instructions for programming a personal code and simply entered the factory code first and then pressed the prog/enter code button. The safe opened. The instructions tell you to push the prog/enter code first and then enter the factory code or personal code to open the safe. Wrong! Do it my way should this problem happen to you.

The latching mechanism looks like a hook. Either the hinges were installed from the factory mis-aligned, or the latching mechanism needs adjustment.
If you need to, stand on it and get the safe open.
Once it is open look for some screws or bolts at the latch striker that will allow you to make adjustments.
Move it further away from the "hook" to make it easier to unlock.
It should not be as difficult as you describe. You should not need to press down when locking or unlocking. There is an alignment problem somewhere.
If it is brand new - you should be able to return it for a working unit.
