Question about Kitchen Ranges
Here is the repair manual for your exact model
See page 18 for diagrams on your lock which is activated by an electric solenoid.
Here is the solution to get the lock to open:
Pull the unit out - on the upper right side top of the back (when facing the oven door), there is a small plastic wheel attached to a bracket with a 0.125" OD lever attached. When the wheel rotates via the electronic solenoid, the lever goes front to back. This is connected to the door latch in such a way that when you move the latch lever toward you (the front of the oven), the latch moves to the left, unlocking the door! Either spin the wheel by hand to move the lever forward, or remove one screw to loosen the housing, then remove the lever from the wheel and push forward toward the door.
Hope this resolves the issue for you. If so please remember to accept and rate my answer as this is exremely important to me as an expert on the site. Many Thanks.

Unplug the unit for a few minutes, and then plug it back in
